    This is pretty sad to read about...just think of the impact this must have had on their communities in the past 60 years with these STDs introduced by the US government on purpose just for the sole purpose of studying the effectiveness of penicillin on syphilis, etc...

    Sorry if this sounds offensive to anyone, but this is really turning out to be a shitty two faced country.

    What?!? D=

    I won't be surprised if by 2040 I see a thread that says "US apologizes for gay genocide with AIDS 60 years ago"

    I'm sure the US is conniving illegal medical shit today, only to be revealed 70 years from now when people will think, "well that was 70 years ago when the world was cruel. Surely we're all urbane now."

    Sorry, Jake, I'm usually not vindictive, but did you say you're going to grad school?

    Yes you fawking idiot I know the origins of HIV. It was a hyperbole. I don't really think the gov't gave gays AIDS.

    Well sorry Jake, I didn't know if your comments about AIDS were in jest. Your 2nd statement sure left me in doubt there.

    Though you truly can't be surprised if this happens. icon_lol.gif I mean...with all the scandalous stuff going on. But yeah, I didn't read the link but from my college education HIV was a virus contained naturally in monkey (doesn't affect them) in Africa. Then the Africans ate the monkeys without proper cooking, catching HIV...and the theory I heard is this SUPER slut homo flight attendant from America had sex with an African and then spread the disease to hundreds of people within a year and bam...AIDS epidemic. Am I right on the origins? To make things worse the medics and CDC tried to warn the gays of this "CHID" outbreak and a lot of gays ignored them, thinking they were just trying to get the gays to stop being gay.
