Richard Thomas, Rapist, Upset He Might Have Gotten HIV From Victim

Richard Thomas, Rapist, Upset He Might Have Gotten HIV From Victim

Commented Sep 4, 2013 at 11:00:32 in Crime

“Transmission from women to men is much rarer than transmission from men to women,  Transmission from men to men in the absence of anal intercourse is also rare. ”

Tom Helios on Sep 4, 2013 at 23:50:41

“The world 'rare' doesn't enter the actual conversation in this instance. 'Uncommon' isn't even applicable.”

“That's what I meant, increases the odds that he would contract the virus (not increases his odds of survival, heaven forbid)”

“Sadly, men catching HIV from women seems to be extremely rare except in Africa, though if he's uncircumcised that increases the odds.”

“You have that backward - uncircumcised men are MORE likely to contract it, as the flesh kept soft and moist by the foreskin makes it more vunerable. And the retracting foreskin holds her fluids against him for much longer. The virus dies rather quickly away from body heat out in the air.”

Tom Helios on Sep 4, 2013 at 08:56:29

“The chance is the same everywhere, and that chance isn't 'rare'. Heterosexual vaginal transmission is not 'rare' either, and as you point out, uncircumcised me have a larger chance.”

“These particular locals didn't consider the real alternative...monitoring wildlife for the good of wildlife...their mindset doesn't encompass that.  As to whether the majority of Egyptians are literate and/or technologically minded, outside Cairo and Alexandria, no.”

Maezeppa on Sep 1, 2013 at 01:16:50

“That's pretty much the case in any country: outside of the major cities you don't see a highly educated populace.  In any case, there's nothing unreasonable about being suspicious about wildlife carrying mechanical apparatus.  CLICK

Sarah Palin: 'Let Allah Sort It Out' In Syria

Commented Aug 31, 2013 at 19:53:45 in Politics

“Well I never thought I might agree about anything with the undivine Sarah, but she has a point. Syria like most of the Middle East is a sea of internecine (did I spell that right?) violence. Islam, like Christianity, has often had the unfortunate idea that heretics are worse than infidels. Most Americans don't grasp the ins and outs of Islamic internal feuds, and probably hardly grasp what happened in Europe just 300 to 400 years ago...when Protestants and Catholics were fighting devastating wars...the Thirty Years War destroyed Germany in a way that's really never been compensated for since. The Saint Bartholomew's Day massacre in France pretty much ended the Protestants as a political force. In some ways those wars were worse than the revolutions in France and Russia.
But Sarah probably doesn't understand that Allah just means 'God'. The same God we all share with Abraham and the original Sarah.”

“We'd really really like to explain the universe to some of the folks still living in the 14th century (many of them right here in the USA) but they wouldn't understand the explanations, would they?”

realitytrumpsbull on Sep 1, 2013 at 02:53:26

“Some of the explanations don't fly with people living in the 21st century, either.”

“They might not, but maybe their children will if they can get an education.”

“And how, sir, would you know about these fictional parties? Were you invited and showed up and they rejected you at the door? Were you invited but just said no? The number of people who ever deliberately gave someone else HIV (and there must have been some somewhere sometime, especially in the early days) is minuscule compared to the number of people who shoot and kill other people...which is a lot more guaranteed to work...and you don't have to wait months to find out the result.”

“This is pure nostalgia but when I was a kid 60 years ago, yes there were ignorant people but they were ashamed of it, not proud of it, and they remedied it if they had the opportunity. Our teabaggers really do have a lot in common with Muslim fundamentalists. Is it that we automatically become like our enemy?”

“sadly, we're not only proud of our ignorance, but we celebrate it on TV with a highly successful trend in broadcasting these days. It galls me to witness it, but sadly, our young revel in it. So sad. So sad. But then, we elect the ignorant too, so maybe there is no remedy for it.”

“Actually I think the low point was the early 1970s after the big great stuff of the 60s. Today's pop is mostly a lot smarter than that - after all that was the heyday of Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes (Springsteen wannabes who never were).”

“Gee, where I grew up in the South, it wasn't only poor people who loved fried chicken and barbecue (but barbecue in NC and VA where I lived is different from TX, it's mostly pulled pork with hot sauce on a hamburger bun, topped with cole slaw - I still miss it actually, nobody up North knows how to make it). But honestly the lady in question doesn't seem to be aging well, maybe she should be concerned about her own diet.”

“Yes, the advance of LBG is sadly trailed by T. And it's tragic and immoral. Anyone should be able to be whatever they're capable of being. Our only limits should be ourselves. One way of looking at it is, do people object to M to F transexuals more than F to M? I think they do, for fairly obvious cultural reasons. But I've met totally convincing examples of both, where I wouldn't have guessed if I wasn't told. Isn't that what everyone should be able to have? If not, why not?
I also think it reflects an underlying disrespect and distaste for women, period. Otherwise, what's so bad about a man wanting to be one?”
