    About the HIV transmissions in France, perception is everything. Perception matters. So, as a setback, in those countries where gays are generally well integrated to the general population as they don’t consider themselves as part of any closed ghetto in particular, they take the same measures to protect themselves from the STD than the general population. While the campaigns become relaxed or give the wrong message, they just simply go with the majority, as we all come from and live in a heterosexual world.
    The worst possible message is the one that can make some group feel safer or not exposed. For instance, this statistics will bounce back as the heterosexual once again will feel that HIV is a gay thing.
    One of the strangest “mental pathology” so to speak that I’m usually told about is that there are gays that consider themselves as only having sex with “straight men” (when they should be saying bisexual men at least) and both part included (the gay that cheat himself into believing that lie and the bisexual that can not accept that is also having sex with a man) feel therefore safer when au contraire, is the worst possible approach. The worst possible approach is taking any path to avoid using protection, whatever the excuse is.

    I am trying to suss out what you are saying, Lexxvsl, but I am sorry; your wording is very muddled. Regardless; what I find most alarming with respect to the depressing news coming out of not only France, but all over industrialized nations in the matter of HIV infections among gay youth, is that we are, in fact, not alarmed. Young gays regard HIV with a shrug, infection rates soar, and the gay community shrugs. Yes, this is no longer 1986; the new anti-virals can keep one alive, so disease and death are no longer the issues, but is this the way we want to live our lives?

    The red cross’s blood policy isn’t bigoted. Until the gay community starts to reduce the seroconversion rate, I see no reason to lift the ban. Even random sampling screening lets certain donations fall under the radar.

    As to the secorconversion rate in france…that ain’t the way to have fun, son.
