Art_Deco saidMeanwhile in South Florida, we're having high rates of new HIV cases. Despite various independent agencies establishing education, community outreach, and extensive free testing programs. One of the not-for-profits I heavily support gave over $300,000 in 2014 for these purposes in my own Broward County alone, over $1 million in the region, and that's just one of many doing likewise.
But our State government isn't helping enough. Florida on the State level would like to be as regressive regarding gay and HIV issues as backward States like Tennessee. Fortunately a number of cities & counties are trying to do the right thing, but with limited resources.
And the results we're seeing here with HIV infection rates reflect the inadequate approach Florida is taking to these issues. It saves money, but costs lives. And serves ideological goals instead of medical ones.
More backward than this?:
"So all this BS about sex being safe with an undetectable poz guy is just medical talk dealing with controlled conditions (Did you think they fucking in a laboratory?)
. That has no application, bearing or relevance to the real world situations in which you & I actually operate. And such basic medical research shouldn't be misinterpreted to be providing guidance as to how gay men should behave sexually with each other."
A quote from you. The MOST anti-science position possible!
Compare THAT to Australia's ACON statement(based on TasP from Dr. Julio Montaner and Dr. Fauci (remember him???):
ACON statement 2014 http://www.acon.org.au/sites/default/files/What-is-Safe-Sex-Position-2014.pdf
There are now at least five strategies that reasonably constitute ‘safe sex’,
provided that certain parameters are met. They are:
The use of Condoms during casual encounters between men of unknown or discordantserostatus.
HIV negative men taking effective pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP)
Men living with HIV who only have sex without condoms when they have a sustained
undetectable viral load (UVL) and in the absence
of sexually transmissible infections (STIs)
Effective use of serosorting
between HIV positive men
Effective negotiated safety agreements
