Subject: RE: BS: Why I am gone
Ake Ok, thanks for putting to rest that you are not associated with to one of these groups. If you were, I would not see the point of continued discussion of the topic.

However - you added something else that concerns me: ""My belief is that there is something intrinsically wrong with sex between males, which is causing the yearly rise in infection rates.""

I am a bit puzzled by this statement, you say it is your "belief" rather than it is a question you have as to the reason why different groups are impacted by HIV at different rates? It is very difficult to have a discussion with one who has already established "a belief" versus one who is genuinely seeking knowledge through discussion with others with a variety of perspectives (possibly in an attempt of converting others to their beliefs).

Could it have been a error in what you posted?

Or, have you formed a firm (or, even soft) conclusion that puts it into a different dimension, a belief?

If it is the latter, (an actual belief,or conclusion) it seems unproductive for me to continue the discussion - as, I don't a valid reason to take the discussion further, as I mostly avoid trying to sway people away from their "beliefs".
