Letter to the New York Times on HIV and Gay Youth Editorial « Kenyon Farrow
Young gay men are not to blame for the profound failure of government to provide comprehensive HIV prevention—nor for the media’s continued ignorance of the root causes of HIV.

That statement “Young gay men are not to blame for the profound failure of government to provide comprehensive HIV prevention—nor for the media’s continued ignorance of the root causes of HIV.”

Young gay men are in their situation precisely because of choices that they have made. There has been ample media coverage about HIV/AIDS, it’s treatment and prevention for decades. Why should the government be responsible for the research? It has all become a blind hole and money pit. Spending more good money after bad makes no sense. Especially when these young gay men are so irresponsible that they make the choices that they do.

    What you obviously do not know is that young gay men, especially black and latino, do not have any more sexual partners, nor more unprotected sex than their white counterparts. But they have more HIV, and all the public health literature shows that.

    Before you start ranting about irresponsibility learn a thing or two about public health and infectious disease. The worst thing is to give someone a bullhorn who knows nothing about that which they speak.

    If you need to be updated on the literature let me know.

    Well Mr. Farrow, you are full of it. Research shows just the opposite, at least as far as heterosexuals.
    Talk about responsibility? I worked as a Paramedic from the beginnings of the HIV era until a short time ago. Remember the “H’s” you know it all? How many of these people have you actually seen die before your own eyes? How many leaders within the gay community ranted about taking responsibility for actions..? Well?

    Personal accountability and responsibility would go a long way toward getting a leash on this problem.
