Thread Name: BS: 'Gay marriage' question
Subject: RE: BS: 'Gay marriage' question
3000 new cases of HIV, out of a UK gay population estimated to be 3.6m, doesn't seem that many to be getting in such a state about. It's considerably fewer than, say the number of new cases of TB (more than 9000 new cases reported in 2011).

But I'll ask the question again, if you're so concerned about the health threats to gays, why are so opposed to allowing them to be monogamous relationships and for these to be fully recognised in law?

By the way, not all gays seeking to get married are male - HIV is almost unheard of amongst non-drug using lesbians.
