Dear Mr. Warnock,
You critize my paper for being homophobic in nature. I am not
homophobic. My paper simply states the immunosuppressive effects of
certain sexual behavior. I make a clear distinction between
promiscuous, drug-abusing homosexuals and monogamous, drug-free
homosexuals. I am not condemning or judging anyone.
In answer to you inquiry about AIDS on other continents, African AIDS is
quite different from AIDS in the US. The epidemiology is different (50%
male/50%female) and the opportunistic infections experianced by AIDS
patients is different. The reason for this is that the cause of the
African AIDS centers more around malnutrition and poor sanitation than
AIDS in the US. I could go in to more detail but I do not have the time
at this moment. The issue is very complex. And the statistics on
Africa AIDS have also been called into question. I assure you that when
I wrote my paper AIDS: A Holistic Approach to A Holistic Disease. I was
well aware of this.
In answer to your inquiry about the recent epidemiological trends of
AIDS in the US. I am also aware that AIDS is becoming more prevalent in
women and in heterosexuals. The propaganda associated with AIDS has
altered the behavior of permiscous homosexuals and hetrosexuals.
Promiscouity is a much larger risk factor for homosexual men than for
heterosexuals. Thus, we are seeing a small decline in homosexual men
getting AIDS. Women and heterosexuals are increasing because their
major risk factors continue to increase.
I wish I could go into further detail, but I am limited on time. I
suggest that anyone who reads this message also read my previous posting
and Mr. Warnock's posting.
