Porno Pete is Dangerous

Peter LaBarbera is on a crusade to convince everyone that AIDS in the US is a gay disease.

The simple fact is that, in 2009, about half of new cases are believed to have been transmitted by male gay sex. Since we are a smaller percentage of the population, we all know that unprotected gay male sex is riskier than unprotected heterosexual sex.

In order to further demonize gay people, Pete wants classroom instruction to be altered so that young people know that they are at less risk for AIDS if they are engaged in heterosexual sex. In Peter-world, this means that fewer people will choose to be gay.

AIDS is 100% preventable through condom use
(exclusive of intravenous drug users)


It is just stupid to use AIDS to advance an anti-gay agenda when nobody has to get AIDS in the first place. If I had a daughter. I sure wouldn't want her playing the sex lottery. Again, that would be stupid. I also know that abstinence-only doesn't work     never has never will. Believing that young people will wait until marriage to have sex is stupid. The smart thing is to assume - in spite of my sound parental advice - that my daughter is going to screw her brains out. hopefully not but if that is my mindset, the one thing that I can drive home is the necessity for protected and only protected sex.

Pete goes on tilting at windmills to close down gay bathhouses. I didn't even know that such things still exist. Leave it to Porno Pete to be thus informed.

Then Pete goes off on a strange, although amusing, tear:
“Homophobia” is a contrived smear term used to denigrate faith-based opposition to homosexuality. It is counter-productive folly to promote the normalcy of homosexual behavior – e.g., through offensive, indecent public ad campaigns — in the name of “safer sex.”
I have absolutely no idea what Pete is trying to say but I do know that homophobia is in the DSM. There is nothing contrived about it. I also know that a great deal of anti-gay oppression is at the hands of people who are insecure about their own sexuality. I also know that Peter is homophobic. His "faith-based" fetish; His religious-based obsession with how people have sex is not normal. I will remind Pete that people flew airplanes into buildings because they were equally certain that they were in service to their god.

Let this not be a distraction. Young people, gay and straight, must be instructed that the use of a condom is imperative if they are to have sex. That is the best way to eradicate this deadly disease,
