the ignorance in the world amazes me
Mar 20, 2005

hey doctor Bob,

I can not believe you even wasted your time responding to that jackass. What a naive, ignorant person to even be able to think, much less say some shit like that. He needs to go back and check his references, they would tell him that majority of the millions of people with hiv and aids in Africa are not gay. Plus their are more women than ever contracting hiv in the united states. This virus does not have borders or bounderies. It has no brain at all to make such a decision. Although his comments do make me believe that brains can be made small enough to fit in the virus. One thing he was correct about is using protection, but this goes for everybody, even a heterosexual republican like myself. Yes doctor Bob, some of us do care for more than our millionaire friends.

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Republican Friend,

Thanks for your support and common sense! I absolutely agree with your comment that protection is for everyone! Just wish some "other" Republicans would allow appropriate sex-education in our schools so kids of all orientations could learn that crucial information. Did you know "abstinence-only" programs, to get Federal funds, are barred by law from discussing condoms or other forms of contraception, except to describe how they can fail! "Abstinence-plus" programs make much more sense. They encourage abstinence, but also teach safer sex and contraception.

Did you know that 92% of American women carry lip protection, but only 10% carry HIV protection?

Let's work together to make a difference that can save lives. OK?

I'll repost the question that prompted your comments in hopes of soliciting even more support for AIDS awareness and education for everyone red, blue or Tinky Winky purple!

Stay well.

Dr. Bob


Dr. Bob,

No offense, but I think you are totally 'blinded' by your liberal agenda to raise money for AIDS research by acting like HIV isn't a Gay Man's disease. Lets look at some facts... The most highly infected areas for HIV in the USA are in SanFagSisco, and then again in NYC's Greenwhich Village. WOW! They both happen to be the most GAY areas in the USA as well. Why is it that the majority of all new AIDS cases are from Gay men? Another question is,,, why should we invest so much money in AIDS research when we've alreayd invested so much on SAFE SEX AWARNESS and you gays can't even keep a condom on your penis? Is there something ritual and addictive about gay barebacking where you lil fudge packers lose all self control and don't have enough common sense to wrap it? But the again, we're talking to a group of people whose favorite place to do these acts is in a Public Restroom right next to the crapper, right?

Dr. Bob's response:


You begin your comments by saying "no offense . . . ," but then you proceed with:

1. ". . . San Fag Sisco . . . ."

2. ". . . you gays can't even keep a condom on your penis . . . ."

3. " . . . you lil Fudge packers lose all self control . . . ."

4. " . . . we're talking to a group of people whose favorite place to do the acts is in a public restroom right next to the crapper . . . ."

Gee, whatever made you think I might find comments like those offensive???

The reason I "deny HIV is as gay man's disease" is merely scientific fact and common logic. Simply put, HIV is a viral illness that has resulted in a world pandemic presently affecting 40 million people and snuffing out a life every 10 seconds. If raising money for this cause is being "blinded by a liberal agenda," then I guess it's time I get a white stick and a guide dog!

As for your shockingly inappropriate homophobic rhetoric, I post it only to remind our readers that folks like you exist.

If you ever decide to address this forum again, I suggest you begin with an apology. Until then, in the words of Glenda the Good Witch, "Be gone, you have no power here."

I wish you enlightenment.

Dr. Bob

Just Hello!
