Homosexuality, HIV and the CDC

A data analysis released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention underscores the disproportionate impact of HIV and syphilis among gay and bisexual men in the United States.

The data, presented at CDC's 2010 National STD Prevention Conference, finds that the rate of new HIV diagnoses among men who have sex with men (MSM) is more than 44 times that of other men and more than 40 times that of women. (emphasis mine).

Why is it that our culture spends an enormous amount of money discouraging unhealthy behaviors like smoking and overeating, while at the same time encouraging sexual behaviors that lead to horrible deaths?

Why is it that so few people (relatively speaking) have the guts to tell the truth, i.e. that the promotion of lifestyles that kill people is truly hateful?
