Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome is a syndrome of one or more diseases brought on by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). The virus works by attaching to the victim's immune system cells, replicating, and injecting its own genetic code into the cell. Thus, the immune system is weakened, eventually to the point where simple infections and diseases become life threatening. The only way a person can get this disease is either by; Exchanging body fluids with an infected person (i.e. Blood, semen, vaginal fluids) and getting it into their bloodstream or body. This can happen by using needles which have been infected, sexual intercourse with an infected member, or Other forms of exposed contact to infected materials/fluids. While there are many people who would say otherwise, the people who are in the highest risk group of getting AIDS are homosexual males and people with multiple sexual parters. The main reason with male homosexual intercourse is there may be accompanying tears and fissures in the lining of the anus, which maximizes the spread of the virus into the body. In fact according to reports done by researchers, 84-87 percent of all AIDS victims in the United States are homosexual men. While in other places in the world, such as Africa, there is an astonishing rate of infection, mainly due to the sexual promiscuity in some areas of the continent.
In the U.S. there are currently 3,600+ children under age 5 who have AIDS, most of whom have recieved it from being born of an infected mother.

Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome

a very serious STD caused by the retrovirus HIV. it can be transmitted by semen, breastmilk, blood and vaginal fluid. u cannot get it from huggin or kissin or shakin hands. AIDS eventually kills of ur white blood cells and when they go, ur immune system goes. technically, AIDS doesnt kill u. its the sickness u get when ur immune system is destroyed (like the cold or the flu. in the 80s and early 90s when the disease was first discovered (i think), ppl thought is was only transmitted through homosexuals and that it was a curse on them. its not though. it can be transmitted to homos, straight ppl and even lil babies...

although new medicine and technology help expand the life span for AIDS patients, there is currently no cure for HIV/AIDS.
i still have hope that man will find the cure for AIDS and all of these diseases. in the meantime, u shouldnt discriminate against ppl who have it. its hard enough for them as it is so lay off!

AIDS stands for Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome. AIDS refers to the advanced stages of HIV. AIDS eventually results in loss of life. Due to lack of education and ignorance in the heterosexual community, it is now spreading faster there than in the gay community.
See previous "ignorant" definitions of this term to understand why AIDS and HIV is currently spreading faster in the heterosexual community than the gay community.

With any luck, a vaccine for this horrible disease will be ready within the next ten years. Then you fundies and homophobes can think of something better to do with your time.
Associated Press report (January 24, 2005):

A potential HIV/AIDS vaccine developed by Merck & Co. that uses synthetic genes to prepare cells to fight the deadly virus is moving into the second stage of testing.

An approved vaccine would be about a decade away if the trial and a third study are successful, said officials with the international coalition that is collaborating on the work.

"It is the most promising candidate that we've seen so far," said Sarah B. Alexander, associate director of the coalition, known as the HIV Vaccine Trials Network. She cautioned, however, "something better could come along tomorrow."

Despite being an unfortunate condition that eventually leads to a weaker immune system, it has gained popularity as a reaction to something irrational or stupid said or done by someone, or simply to a pun or really bad joke.
Matt: Did you hear about the pornstar that got stuck between an ice cream truck and a truck full of pies? She nearly died!
