AIDS Foundation

The Game Is COMPLETELY Misinformed

The Game was merely perpetuating "myths and stereotypes" when he implied all closeted gay men have AIDS ... this according to the San Francisco AIDS Foundation.

The SFAF has issued a statement, claiming Game's comments in a recent interview about the gay community are "a powerful reminder that despite the tremendous progress made debunking myths and stereotypes about how HIV is spread, we still have work to do."

The foundation notes, "[Game] seems to be confusing two important facts -- that black and gay communities continue to bare the brunt of the U.S. epidemic."

"Experts agree that the hype around people on the 'down low' driving new infections among either group is just that -- hype."

The SFAF claims they want to speak with The Game because "we'd welcome the chance to help him better understand HIV risk and prevention so he can use his voice to inform and empower."

A lot of black men in America have unprotected sex with women and they think they will never catch AIDS because they are not gay. Big mistake! Being heterosexual does not shield anyone from catching AIDS. Having protected sex or abstinence are the only ways to prevent getting AIDS. Sexual orientation has nothing to do with anything.

you know how in a math test, you can still get points for the right answer, even if the calculations were incorrect? well, it is an absolute fair statement to assess that A WOMAN HAS THE RIGHT TO KNOW IF HER PARTNER IS A SECRET HOMOSEXUAL! is AN ABSOLUTE CORRECT STATEMENT! regardless of his probably incorrect statement that 'all gay men have aids'. that is totally another topic that has been infused into a very poignant statement that he made, namely that: A WOMAN HAS THE R I G H T!! TO KNOW IF HER PARTNER IS A CLOSET HOMOSEXUAL!! wow. are people really that stupid???!

Now matter how you package it, this is how many straight up people feel. Many people blame poofs for the spread of HIV and the BIG DISEASE WITH THE little name into the straight community. I know that you can't truly say "every poof" has AIDS and HIV but they're about to crossover.
