  1. This Pope is such an idiot. Condoms protect us all for multiple STDs !!!! FACT !!!! grrr

    HIV is just a different story, though.

  2. Yes, these are the HIV/AIDS news stories of 2009, but what has also been interesting this year are two related issues.

    Firstly, there have been a number of rows here on the PinkNews Comment pages regarding the kind of HIV prevention campaigns that there ought to be. Many readers think the campaigns that have been in operation for the past ten years or so are fine, while many others believe that they collude with the gay sex industries and actually encourage gay men into seeking out casual and/or sleazy sex.

    And, secondly, a small number of convinced AIDS-Denialists have been visiting these pages, insisting that HIV does not cause AIDS, and that therefore medication that attacks HIV is useless and simply a money-making scam by pharmaceutical companies.

  3. At last we agree on something.
