An Epidemic of Ignorance : LUSENET : SF Times Op-Ed : One Thread

AIDS is caused by a virus, but it is an epidemic of ignorance. It was not vigorously attacked at the beginning, because it was foolishly thought to be a disease of homosexuals. It was allowed to spread unchecked because of hatred and bigotry. Although Gay men have shown that it can be controlled through education about safer sex practices and other hygienic means, in some quarters these have been irrationally rejected.
