Bryan Fischer: stopping men from having sex will stop AIDS.

Bryan Fischer: stopping men from having sex will stop AIDS. July 18, 2014

Oh special twitter list, sometimes you make me laugh.  And sometimes you make my cry that this much hate and this much stupidity can exist within the same human being:

Yeah, Bryan Fischer just can’t stand it when people politicize a tragedy and a disease to suit their pet cause…like he’s doing with this tweet.  “That kettle is totally black!” ~ Bryan Fisher

And who is this “we”?  Surely you’re not referring to all of humanity, most of humanity, or even to the scientific community, because they all know that’s a load of bullshit.  I mean, would you believe that straight people contract AIDS and even children live with the disease, and it has nothing to do with gay men doing each other.

The reason gay men are more likely than straight people to get AIDS is because the skin on the anus is thinner and more prone to tearing.  Women who indulge in anal sex get AIDS at the same clip, but you don’t see Fischer opposing anal sex, just when gay people do it.

Another reason is due to not having to worry about pregnancy, gay men tend to use condoms less than straight people.  The problem isn’t the sex, it’s the not using condoms.  Is Bryan Fischer arguing for the use of condoms?  Of course not, because that would mean safer sex for fun and Jesus doesn’t like that.  The ironic thing is that the American Psychological Association attributes much of the fault for this to people like Bryan Fischer:

These structural conditions, which take the form of discrimination and homophobia (Wolistki & Fenton, 2011; Wolitski, Stall, & Validiserri, 2008), are further compounded by racism and economic disparities for gay and bisexual men of color. Exposure to and experiences of homophobia have been implicated in substance abuse, risky sexual behaviors, negative body image, suicide attempts, increased stress and limited social support among gay and bisexual men (Halkitis, Fischgrund, & Parsons, 2005; Mayer, Bradford, Makadon, Stall, & Goldhammer, 2008; Wolitski, Stall, Valdiserri, 2008). Moreover, experiences with homophobia have been shown to interfere with the ability of gay and bisexual men to establish and maintain longterm same-sex relationships, which protect against HIV acquisition (Diaz, Ayala, Bein, Henne, & Marin, 2001). The experiences of homophobia may exert their effects on sexual risk taking indirectly by exacerbating mental health burden (Halkitis, 2010b; Johnson, Carrico, Chesney, & Morin, 2008).

And hey, lesbians get AIDS at a rate far lower than straight people or gay men.  I guess next Fischer will be encouraging everybody to ignore their sexual orientation and become lesbians, right?  Of course not.  It’s about opposing gay people no matter what, not care about AIDS.

Bryan Fischer is such a piece of shit.
