They practically had it sold already.
The guy is 80 years old. Why don't people realize he might actually have dementia? He is not right in his mind. Nah, let's crucify an aging old man who is not thinking right.

You got to love the public. Always able to tell right from wrong. Picking on old people. Way to go.

Still amazed that out of all the thousands Magic has slept with, you would think that a dozen would have came out claiming they contacted HIV from him. Not one female. Incredible.

Idiocy, I say.

Yes I have and that's why I specifically said hetero male (meaning no intravenous drug use, not bisexual and not gay on the "down low"(what some accuse Magic of))

Huh? I just explained to you how a "hetero male" can get HIV/AIDS. His partner can be the drug user.


The odds are 0.04% no matter what's going on. There are definitely biological and anatomical reasons why it's hard for hetero men to get HIV - you can look them up.

No, I'm not going to look them up. HIV virus is present in bodily secretions. Infected cells can pass through mucous membranes. While it is harder for a woman to infect a man, it is not impossible and it is downright stupid for a hetero man to think otherwise.

This sounds like a media contrived talking point.

No, it sounds like common sexual sense. Though I must admit many people obviously lack that.

0.04% per 10,000 exposures with an HIV infected partner. You can do the math. Stop promoting needless fear.
I am not promoting anything. Again, it's called common sense. Any man who has reckless unprotected sex can open himself up to STDs including HIV. Thinking that Magic is bisexual due to his HIV status is frankly stupid, and that was the main point of my post. Being homosexual doesn't equate to having HIV.
