The Game

Women Have the Right to Know If Their Man Is Secretly Gay

9/8/2011 2:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0908_the_game_explains_tmz_liveThe Game just went on TMZ Live to clarify his point that closeted gay men spread AIDS by tricking women into bed -- telling us, gay men are predisposed to spreading HIV ... and keeping their sexuality a secret puts women at risk as well.

Check out the interview ... it raises an interesting question -- should a slight reduction in HIV risk come at the expense of someone's right to privacy?

Sorry TMZ, but the facts don't match up with your homosexual agenda. Game is right here. The homosexual community makes up ~2% of the US population, yet male homosexuals account for 53% of new HIV infections per year. This is according to the Centers for Disease Control, which doesn't have an agenda in play, they just report the data. Homosexuals who do switch hit, put the normal population in jeopardy. There is a reason that HIV infection is so high amongst homosexuals...because the behavior is clearly unnatural. Wise up Harvey! http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/topics/msm/index.htm

I think this opens a flood-gate of other questions too, such as... if "closet" homosexuals hide their infidelity from their partners, shouldn't heterosexual partners reveal their infidelity??? A lot of married individuals will engage in infidelity at some point in their marriage, no matter what sexual orientation they are. Check the stats!

I kinda agree with this...either way gay bi or straight guys are pervy and do dirty stuff all the time . But I think maybe if our country was more open with sexuality then and didn't care about what others think cause let's face it. That's why we're all in debt cause we buy things we can't afford to impress strangers . Then there wouldn't be "sex parks" glory holes gay chat rooms filled with married men and a stigma attached to the whole thing.

Knwthefacts    

This is quoted DIRECTLY from the CDC:
Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM)1 represent approximately 2% of the US population, yet are the population most severely affected by HIV and are the only risk group in which new HIV infections have been increasing steadily since the early 1990s. In 2006, MSM accounted for more than half (53%) of all new HIV infections in the United States, and MSM with a history of injection drug use (MSM-IDU) accounted for an additional 4% of new infections. At the end of 2006, more than half (53%) of all people living with HIV in the United States were MSM or MSM-IDU. Since the beginning of the US epidemic, MSM have consistently represented the largest percentage of persons diagnosed with AIDS and persons with an AIDS diagnosis who have died.

People... KNOW YOUR STATUS and be HONEST.
If you are gay or bi... Then be open and honest about it. Be proud of who you AND give you partner the opportunity to know who you are as well.

Downlow is DECIETFUL. Period.

Sigh..... Does "The Game" realize that the scientific research regarding HIV/AIDS and it's transmission regarding the homosexual community was completely discounted and we are all equally likely to get it?? Oh wait he's a rapper, he probably doesn't read scientific reports or check the news. This is beyond stupid..... Then people wonder why I rail on about how stupid these rappers are......

and if someone is "secretly gay" wouldn't that totally go against the idea of "knowing" they are gay? I mean if I have a secret, something tells me no one else knows about it........

The risk of a receiver, male or female getting HIV is greater than a giver! And the risk of a person getting anal is greater because of the anal tears, etc. Women are receiver's so there risk is as high as gay men who do anal. Harry should do some research in Public Health before he broadcast's this information. Hispanic and African American women have a high rate of HIV because their partners are on the downlow!

WOW...    

When one chooses to have sex with a crackwhore or a prostitute, one knows what they are getting and the risks....if you are in a supposed monogamous relationship with a man that you believe to be hetro and monogamous also the last thing you may suspect is being with a bi or gay man unless he reveals it....And by the way….it is harder for a woman to pass HIV on to a man, then it is for a man to give it to a woman…men carry HIV in their seaman….a man would have to have blood to blood contact to catch it from a woman…so can a married straight man that cheats on his wife catch HIV? Of course, but the odds are much greater with a gay man having gay sex.

First of all, why is anyone having sex with a stranger? Exciting idea in thought, not so much in practice.

Everyone needs to use protection, regardless of how well you think you know your partner. You should probably continue to do so until you're in a completely committed relationship and want to eliminate the last barrier to having children.

Spoken as an old woman who's been in a monogamous marriage for several decades, I wouldn't want a man to hide his true sexuality from me. I'd rather not sleep with men who love men, not because of AIDs, but because I don't find it sexy that a man is not completely into women.

you should be wearing a condom with people you don't know anyway, it's up to you to protect yourself.
