What is it with politicians and willful ignorance about sexual topics?
Tennessee state Sen. Stacey Campfield (R) falsely claimed that it was nearly impossible for someone to contract AIDS through heterosexual contact. (Try telling that to the thousands of people in Africa who got HIV from hetero sex. )
“Most people realize that AIDS came from the homosexual community,” he told Michelangelo Signorile, who hosts a radio program on SiriusXM OutQ. “It was one guy screwing a monkey, if I recall correctly, and then having sex with men. It was an airline pilot, if I recall.”
“My understanding is that it is virtually — not completely, but virtually — impossible to contract AIDS through heterosexual sex.”
A shining example of what the Republican party has to offer the people of the United States. Kiddies, is what happens when politics becomes faith-based.
The stupid, it hurts. Every day I just read more and more stories and go, "we don't have a chance as a nation, do we?"
