A supportive place for people questioning HIV diagnoses and AIDS science
The most group of people that AIDS has been most prominently associated with is gay men. This is not very surprising when you look into the whole sociology of AIDS with a good realistic knowledge of the flaws in AIDS science. Of course, this is claimed by many to be because anal sex is more prone to transmitting the AIDS virus. That notion fails to withstand scrutiny on so many levels it's too big to go into here.
It fails to take into account, for instance, the experience of a medical officer in a South African men's jail who said that with typically 30 men to a cell, and that "sex is rampant, and condom use virtually non-existent", the jail has a rate of HIV+ diagnoses dramatically lower than that claimed for the general population of South Africa and virtually no deaths classified as AIDS in a seven year period. That does rather challenge the notion that it's men having rampant sex that is inherently the cause of AIDS - perhaps there has been some other difference in men having sex between groups of men in an African Jail, and groups of men on the gay scene in LA, SF, NY and London?
For years at any public event we've been bombarded with people wearing large and overly visible red ribbons, particularly on World AIDS Day, culminating in the ridiculous image in 2007 on Pop Idol where contestants were wearing such huge ribbons they must have been visible from satellites.
So what does the ribbon mean? And why can't re-thinkers about AIDS support it?
