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.

AIDs is a disease that breaks down your immune system. It is HIV in its later form. Nobody has ever died purely because of AIDs, something else kills you after AIDs has weakened you. This is why AIDs is such a horrible disease--it opens the doors and makes it so anything--even a cold--could kill you.

AIDs is blood transmitted, making it an STD. However, before they were able to test for it, you could get it from infected blood transplants.

There is no known cure for aids--yet. There is hope, though, as the prostitutes in Africa are immune to it. We know that it is possible to fight it.

AIDs's origin is not clear. We think it was a problem in the monkey kingdom, but then somebody ate infected monkey meat, got the virus, and spread it.

AIDs is not a punishment for the homosexuals. Strait people get it too. AIDs is not gender, race, sexuality, or age specific. Just because you're a strait, white, male doesn't make you immune. Anyone can get it.

Best way to prevent it: know who you're sleeping with.
AIDs is not a fun thing to get.

What men get by sticking their penises up other men's bottoms.
..."That disease he has does an awful job on you. Your lungs fill up."
"Well, he should have kept his penis out of other men's bottoms then," Janice says, lowering her voice though, so the nurses and orderlies in the hall don't hear.

"You want to know why I don’t have AIDS, why I'm not HIV-positive like so many other people? I don’t fuck around. It’s as simple as that."
