#WorldAIDSDay

Today is "World Aids Day."  It is a day to spread awareness of this killer virus.  A day where people are encouraged to be tested for HIV infection.  Unfortunately is also a day where so called "safe sex" rhetoric is pontificated to people, young and old.  

Safe sex is not safe.  Statistics show that condoms are about 80% effective in preventing the spread of STD.  There is still chance for infection.  It is completely useless against HPV.  

HIV is plaguing the homosexual community in large numbers.  This is unfortunate, but a consequence of a lifestyle that bases itself on sex.  Other groups such as African Americans, Caucasians and Latinos are having great increases in infection.

What can we do to stop this?  It is obvious that safe sex is not safe.  It is not working.   It is a placebo for the ignorant and sexually frustrated. 

Abstinence and common sense are the only ways to stop this disease from claiming more victims.  Viruses mutate when moving from host to host so a cure or vaccine is most likely not possible with current technology.  Nature always is a few steps ahead of man.

In any case anyone who is sexually active must always check themselves.  If one is found to have it, he/she must get medical treatment to keep it controlled.

I hope governments and health organizations will find the courage and responsibility to teach people the truth and not present gimmick items as a way to prevent infection.

As Dr. Harold Jaffee, chief of epidemiology, National Centers for Disease Control said


"You just can’t tell people it’s all right to do whatever you want as long as you wear a condom. It (AIDS) is just too dangerous a disease to say that."
