I'm going to need to see statistics to prove that though. I don't think nearly as many gay people have the opportunity to "come out", thus it's hard to really understand it. The fact that traditional (not arranged, but traditional) marriage is a heavy aspect of Uganda life attributes to their low AIDS rate.

Also, we are not talking about Africa, we are talking about Uganda. Your points will have to be a little more specific.

You can read about HIV/AIDS in Uganda here:

HIV & AIDS in Uganda

One statistic from there I'll point out to support what I said earlier is that in Uganda, women account for 57% of HIV/AIDS infections. That said, Uganda has been an African success story when it comes to combating AIDS. At one point in the early 90s, 30% of all pregnant urban Ugandan women had HIV - it's around 5% today.

I don't need to read up on your statistics, I have done my own research. Besides that my father is Ugandan and worked as a doctor there at the largest hospital in the country. If you wan't to hear the non politically correct truth, he'll be more than glad to give it to you.

What? First of all, I didn't link to site with transmission statistics - it was a summary of the history of HIV in Uganda that described how Uganda when from high infection rates to one of the lowest in Africa.

I linked to Avert - one of the the largest AIDS charity groups in the world. It's a judgment free, non-partisan, non-PC, non-anything other than collect information, educate, and try to reduce the incidence of HIV organization.

If you want to share your research and your non politically correct truth, by all means do.

It is funny though that in two back to back posts you first

a) ask to see such statistics:

"I'm going to need to see statistics to prove that though"

and then

b) preemptively dismiss any such statistics and attack them as being false due to political correctness:

"I don't need to read up on your statistics, I have done my own research...If you wan't to hear the non politically correct truth, he'll be more than glad to give it to you"
