“Gotta agree with you on that. They guys who project what they really feel about their mothers onto other women in their lives (because it's wrong to think bad thoughts about your mother, that makes you a bad son), those guys are the dangerous ones . . .”

“You can take the girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl. And 'country' singing is very different from singing for musical theater. There are so many very talented 'triple threats' who would have been great choices, but they're stuck doing summer stock theater because they lack name recognition.”

“And everyone always tells the truth, especially if they need the money from selling
their blood.”

Ryoma Meeiz on Dec 8, 2013 at 21:28:30

“In which case, ban everyone from donating blood. Because yes, people lie, but there is a reason for the checks and balances. And the last known HIV/AIDS blood transfusion case dates back to 2008.”

“Which is why they ask you questions when you donate, such as when was the last time you had sex. If you have anything in your recent history that is high risk, they will not accept your blood for a certain time period.”

Liz Wilson 2 on Dec 7, 2013 at 12:17:56

“that is true with more conditions than just HIV.  Careful screening of all blood is essential. 
Also, paying for blood encourages the destitute, who may also have the least immunity to disease and possibly the most exposure, to donate blood because they need money.”

“It was very cold here in Interior Alaska last week, down to minus forty.
(Not unusual, but cold all over Alaska and western Canada).
Then a big storm from the Bering Sea moved in,
pushing all that cold air south in a hurry. When it hits warm air farther south,
severe weather can result. Now it's 28 degrees (above zero) here, we have
had freezing rain and nasty weather too. We much prefer dry, cold winters but
lately our winters have become increasingly variable, with lots of extremes.”

“I agree. I was thinking along the lines of people that have to inject themselves with insulin and stuff like that. But you are correct, about illegal drugs being self medication.”

“That's not true and you know it. Straight single males are not at nearly as much risk as single gays, for several reasons. The CDC statistics frequently posted here by BacSi
are quite compelling in that regard.”

Paleoichneum on Dec 6, 2013 at 20:34:48

“A gay man having unsafe sex will have a similar risk level as a straight man.

Global statistics show women to the the fasted rising group for HIV contraction, and the CDC statistics are nearing 10 years out of date. Plus they do not address the disproportion of LGBT vrs hetero subjects getting tested. There are very active CDC campaigns for testing aimed at the gay community but no campaigns targeted to straight men. This results in a much higher percentage of gay men getting regular testing.”

“promiscuous barebacking, since you asked

“I agree that's high risk behavior i just don't usually call that a lifestyle but ok.
But don't people that need to self medicate use sterile needles?”

“You are just politically correctly talking around the obvious:
that certain 'lifestyles' are in fact defined by the 'high risk behaviors'
which those who follow that lifestyle engage in. Circular reasoning.”

FantasticFourFan on Dec 6, 2013 at 18:04:15

“No, circular reasoning is saying that just because someone is gay that automatically means they are promiscuous. In other words, what you're doing.”

Paleoichneum on Dec 6, 2013 at 17:33:58

“No, actually "certain lifestyles" are not. A gay monogamous couple is the same risk level as a straight monogamous couple. A single gay with multiple partners is the same risk level as a single straight man.”

jresch20 on Dec 6, 2013 at 16:16:10

“Well, in my experience, while 'they' are definitely not less than human,
there is certainly an aspect of them that is 'other-than-human'. That does
not necessarily mean objectifying 'them', simply identifying them as different.”

“They're not 'in pain'. It's more that, strictly speaking, 'they' are not exactly human
in the way that most of us are. I married into a family like that. Nope, no pain.
Just a modus operandi that sees and treats the rest of us sort of like we might
treat animals, depending on our personality. Not as equals, but as possible expendables if that's what 'their' circumstances require or seem to require.
(Keeping in mind that 'they' have a great deal of control over their circumstances).”

oski the bear on Dec 6, 2013 at 12:23:41

“While I am inclined in much respect to agree with you, I query whether viewing "them" as something less than human might be a significant step towards becoming like "them." Central to sociopathy, as I understand it, is the inclination to view other human beings as objects, or as not-human.”
