LA Times- Health officials say that more than 100 people in southeastern Indiana have tested positive for HIV, an expansion of an outbreak that caused the state to declare a health emergency last month.
Health officials had said they expected the number of HIV cases in Scott County, about 30 miles north of Louisville, Ky., to rise ever since they discovered the problem. The spread of the virus, which causes AIDS, has been linked to the use of contaminated syringes and the painkiller Opana in the area.
A wise man once said "timing is everything". If that man were still alive today he could point to this very situation to illustrate his genius. By a show of hands who knew, up until a few weeks ago, that Indiana was anti-homosexual? I wonder why that could be. You would think an entire state living in about two to three decades in the past would be pretty big news. Is it possible that their thoughts on same sex relationships are a relatively new phenomenon. What could have possibly caused this drastic change in thinking?
What's that you say? There was an HIV outbreak in Indiana a little over a month ago? Well, it looks like the writing is on the wall. Ya know, if said wall is covered in AIDS blood and anti-gay propaganda. Indiana isn't homophobic, they are just uneducated. Not all that surprising when discussing a state that resides in middle America. Indiana isn't mad at the gays for being gay, they are mad because they don't realize there are other ways to spread HIV besides homosexual sex. Indiana doesn't need to be taught acceptance, they need to be taught physical education. Someone get the Hoosiers a 6th grade Health book before they continue their damn near prehistoric hate mongering.
You don't have a gay problem Indiana, you have an advanced narcotics problem. When you think about it that actually makes way more sense. Shame on you Indiana. You failed to identify the actual issue and you went and added prejudice to the growing list of things wrong with your state. Hell, I didn't even know HIV still existed. I thought Magic Johnson put that disease to rest years ago. Turns out Indiana went behind all our backs and dug up it's grave. Thanks a lot Indiana. This is 2015. You can't just spread a deadly virus and hate gay people at the same time. What do you think this is? The 70's?
