This time,

Normally when presented with idiocy of this caliber, I simply shake my head in pity and walk away.
This time, the "information" presented is demonstrably dangerous.

Tennessee GOP lawmaker, Sen. Stacey Campfield said this today (26 January, 2012) (from Raw Story):

“Most people realize that AIDS came from the homosexual community,” he told Michelangelo Signorile, who hosts a radio program on SiriusXM OutQ. “It was one guy screwing a monkey, if I recall correctly, and then having sex with men. It was an airline pilot, if I recall.”

“My understanding is that it is virtually — not completely, but virtually — impossible to contract AIDS through heterosexual sex.”


Wow.
That's breathtaking.
If this were 1981 I could almost understand such ignorance, but today?
Any DU Tennesseans need to flood this guy's mailbox with the CORRECT information.
(Remember to be polite but firm)

R-Knoxville

1. This person is dangerous.

And yes in 2012 there are many like him. Unfortunately it's the one's that are not out spoken that we really have to worry about.

Willful ignorance cannot be corrected through information....

3. What is "heterosexual sex" - consensual phallic penetration of the vagina?

 

Um, since sperm, vaginal fluid and blood all can be present during intercourse, and all these fluids can contain infectious levels of HIV, yes, you do take a risk when consenting to unprotected sexual intercourse.

Idiot.
