Deception 81: School children are being deceived by sodomites - Part III
I Peter 4:3 For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries
A NOTE TO THE READER: Lest some mistakenly think that I consider myself somehow constitutionally better than others, I will note that I was once in the streets myself. I've known male sodomites--black and white--and have spent time with them--as one child of the world spending time with another child of the world. When I became a Christian, I was not cut off from people--I have met and spent time with people who are saved and people who are not saved (not excluding male and female sodomites). We are all made from ONE blood physically no matter what our skin color or station in life. The Bible reveals that Adam and Eve are the parents of us all. We are all related physically. I have often thought about this. We all have the blood of the first Adam. I am related to everybody and everybody is related to me whether black, white, Chinese, Native American, Indian, Australian aborigine, Japanese, etc.--even if they don't know it or acknowledge it. We have a common father, Adam. We can trace our forefathers back to the first ten patriarchs (see Genesis chapter 5.)--Adam,
Enoch was not
Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth--by these three came all the nations and of them was the whole earth overspread after the flood (ref. Genesis 9:18-19). We all come from one of these three sons. In 1991, I started walking towards the last Adam, the Lord Jesus Christ. Now, instead of being under the first Adam, I am under the last Adam, that quickening spirit (ref. I Corinthians 15:45) and his word, the Authorized Version of 1611 of the holy Bible. That is the difference between me and my physical brethren who are still under the first Adam. I have trusted in the last Adam and left the world by his grace and almighty power to save and deliver from the sin lifestyle.
Sodomy is not wrong because man says that it is wrong. It is wrong because God's word says that it is wrong--
Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
Right or wrong is not based on group concensus, it is based on the word of God. God, the one who made us, is the Judge of all the earth and the great Lawgiver. The word of the Lord is right and all his works are done in truth.
Those that have gotten tricked, trapped, or abused into the sodomite lifestyle may wish to see our article, How to Get to Heaven as well as our Deliverance Series.
*** MAINTAINING A PROPER PERSPECTIVE ***
This article about sodomites deceiving school children is just examining one portion of Satan's plan to deceive the whole world and bring to power the beast who will rule the whole world. The masters of the present call this one world government the New World Order, global government, etc.
The masters of the present have been and are attacking every sphere of life in their war against mankind and in their clamor for the installation of the devil's man, the beast. There have been attacks on
- the Bible (which is truth itself--ref. John 17:17),
- the church (the pillar and ground of the truth, ref. I Timothy 3:15),
- the family (the basic unit of society--fathers, mothers, children),
- the government (ordained to be the minister of God to reward good and punish evil, ref. Romans 13).
In the Deception series, though it be long, we are only looking different aspects of the same war against mankind. Also of note is that at this point, we are only looking at one aspect of the sodomite agenda--their unbridled activities in our nation's schools. School doors have been opened to them nationwide (this is not to say that individual sodomites, teachers, administrators, etc. necessarily know what they are ultimately a part of.).
The masters of the present are in great power and they know that their end goal is not only in sight, but in possession--that is why they can make such outrageous and preposterous moves, e.g., California children are being told that they can be a boy or a girl or both (www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=306493). Without the Authorized Version of the Bible, people have no reliable, perfect measure by which to judge things and ideas.
Again, in this article, we are only looking at one aspect of a total assault on mankind that has been going on for many decades in America (and centuries when one looks back to the imperialistic tendencies of the papacy and the Jesuits). With that in mind, please bear with me for a few more moments in this section.*** PREDICTIVE PROGRAMMING ***
In a few final moves, conditions will be set for the beast to appear. The movies that I saw in the time past of my life served as predictive programming to get people ready for what was to come in the future. Some showed a period of lawlessness and thugs on the street and brutality--a jungle atmosphere. If these scenarios are to come to pass, it seems that that wild atmosphere might come after that upcoming chaos settles in and there is no more food in the grocery stores. Other movies showed a future time characterized by almost complete government control and surveillance via electronics and citizen spies with just one person surviving the horrors--the masses were agents of the state. Others programming showed aliens from "outer space" who were greater than us. Others showed the new "science" in various guises, e.g., mixing up man and animal (I won't name the movies), mixing man and insect, farming man's organs, etc. I stopped watching television and movies over a decade ago so these were old movies that I saw. The things I now read about have called to mind the old movies and tv programs that I have seen.*** MANY NOTABLE ACTIVITIES OCCURRED IN THE 1800s AND HAVE CONTINUED UNTO TO THE CURRENT DAY ***
Since the 1800s, the masters of the present have silently and systematically crept into (or created and manned) prominent positions in government, publishing houses, banking, etc. And they have used various means to seduce and manipulate the population--through books, radio, television, schools and colleges, bribes, laws, rules, regulations, ordinances, entertainments, etc. Now that people are sufficiently weakened, dependent, brainwashed, indebted, and mentally unstable, the masters of the present can now implement their Luciferian principles almost unmitigated. Through the school system and mass media (radio and tv shows, comics, movies, music, etc.), they have been hijacking people's minds from childhood as their parents sat back and watched and encouraged them to do well in school and to excel in the system--the sports, music recitals, church Easter egg hunts, etc.A bunch of evil was let loose in the 1800s
After Darwin came out with his own spin on the cunningly devised fable of the theory of evolution in "Origin of the Species," published around 1859, all kinds of evil was let loose. Darwin's version of the theory gave the powers just the lie they could fluff up with unprovable scientific proclamations and thereby separate an unwary populace from their God*. This separation was achieved by deception, lies, paperwork, lectures, books, articles, pictures. Piltdown used in the Scopes trial, a hoax. Haeckel's charts, a hoax, and on the list goes.>"The doctrine of EVOLUTION is A NEWLY INVENTED SYSTEM, A NEWLY CONCERTED
> DOCTRINE, A NEWLY FORMED DOGMA, A NEW RISING BELIEF, WHICH PLACES ITSELF
>>OVER AGAINST THE CHRISTIAN FAITH, AND CAN ONLY FOUND ITS TEMPLE ON THE
>>RUINS OF OUR CHRISTIAN CONFESSION." (Dr. Abraham Kuyper, "Evolution"
> speech delivered in 1899.)
Just a cursory look back and one sees that legion that was let loose beginning in the mid-1800s into the beginnings of the 20th century and then onward--look at the years (I don't list the years below, but those that are unacquainted with these persons can look up their birth and death dates), they were all lumped up together--
- John Dewey (father of progressive education),
- Herbert Spencer (evolutionary sociologist),
- Aldous Huxley (author of the hideous, "Brave New World" and descendent of Thomas Huxley who was called, "Darwin's bulldog"),
- Margaret Sanger (eugenicist and founder of Planned Parenthood (that great killer of infants yet in the womb) who "wrote a magazine column, 'What Every Girl Should Know,' and covered topics such as pregnancy, masturbation..."--I found this quote in a book for children entitled, "Girls: A History of Growing Up Female in America" by Penny Colman published in 2000 by Scholastic),
- Sigmund Freud and other early psychologists,
- Madam Blavasky, Annie Besant ("Esoteric Chrisitanity") and other notorious theosophists (devil worshippers)
Look at the societal result of swallowing the bait hook, line, and sinker. Look around, man, look! Behold, the ruins of this once great country! Behold the desolations!
A bunch of cults also started back in the 1800s. Some of the cults didn't die out, they did not fizzle from lack of interest but rather grew and are with us today. The 1800s--Joseph Smith and the Mormons, Charles Taze Russell and the Russellites/Jehovah's Witness, Mary Baker Eddy and Christian Science. Why did they grow? Where was the fertile soil? Where did the "new age" (soothsaying, familiar spirits, etc. are not new) movement come from?
Why did certain philosophers get heard? Who was the one publishing and spreading forth abroad their proclamations? Who was developing the awards and conferences? Who was there carrying forward the plans the fruition of which we are seeing today? Where did "higher criticism" (an horrible system of blaspheming the word of God by men of corrupt minds) come from and how did it get taught in seminaries? What is a seminary? Is it good that these things were set up in the early days of this country? Whose big idea was it to replace the anointing with Bible college and seminary? Who was sustaining these things from generation to generation and why? Where did the manpower come from? Where did the money and resources for these things come from? Who decided that philosophy was something that college students (like I once was), should learn? I was told a lie in my philosophy class--the professor impudently said to our faces that there was no God. Who decided that that was something somebody needed to "learn"? The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God. Why would anyone pay to hear a fool? Why would an institution of "higher learning" hire a fool and then charge people money to listen to him? How did this practice become systemic?
If one were to follow today's news reports without the aid of the Authorized King James Bible, one could become dizzy and befuddled, but with the Authorized Version, every new piece makes sense (although these things are extremely grievous).
The purpose of this lengthy section is to make sure that we keep perspective...
Americans--inside and outside of churches--have submitted themselves to doctrines of devils and Luciferian principles for decades. I recently noted that on a $1 George Washington coin there was no, "In God we trust." I thought to myself that is just as well that it be removed because America (including the visible churches) does not trust in the Lord. I mentioned this observation to a man and he told me that the, "In God we trust" is found on the edge of the coin. I looked at it again, and sure enough it was on the thin outside edge, not on either face of the coin. The sentence was made very small.
America does not love the Lord. America has feasted on the bread and circuses of Rome for a few short decades and now America's clock is cleaned. Now that America has destroyed herself and things are getting so outrageous, people are upset--but they were not stunned when they were--
- watching Lucy on "I Love Lucy," telling lies.
- letting their children watch Disney movies
- having a church Game Night or Watermelon Sunday
- not glorifying God nor being thankful unto him
- ordering 1,000 NIV pew "Bibles"
- watching pornography
- eating hot dogs and watching football games.
Oh no, they were not concerned. They were not concerned when they kept on going into debt with credit cards and mortgages for huge houses. Oh no, no no. They were not concerned and the preachers did not warn them of the spirit of the times.
*** THE CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL (CDC) ***
The opening paragraph of Deception 71, School children are being deceived by sodomites - Part II there is mention of the sexually transmitted diseases found in the sodomite community. In this article, we will examine excerpts from an article entitled, "HIV among Gay, Bisexual and Other Men Who Have Sex with Men (MSM)" found on the federal government's Center for Disease Control website (www.cdc.gov/hiv/topics/msm/). It concerns HIV and the sodomite community. HIV causes the AIDS, a disease that has long-plagued the sodomite community. According to the CDC article, sodomites only represent about 2% of the U.S. population--but accounted for 57% of new HIV infections in 2006.In 2006, MSM accounted for more than half (53%) of all new HIV infections in the United States, and MSM with a history of injection drug use (MSM-IDU) accounted for an additional 4% of new infections. At the end of 2006, more than half (53%) of all people living with HIV in the United States were MSM or MSM-IDU. Since the beginning of the US epidemic, MSM have consistently represented the largest percentage of persons diagnosed with AIDS and persons with an AIDS diagnosis who have died.
The CDC article also reveals that sodomites...are the only risk group in which new HIV infections have been increasing steadily since the early 1990s.
How does the Center for DISEASE CONTROL plan to deal with this deadly, out-of-control plague? By stating that sodomy is a high risk factor for AIDS and should be avoided?
Where does the Center for DISEASE CONTROL place the blame for this alarming situation? Does it decree that the sodomy is public health hazard? Does it announce that the sodomite community is a veritable breeding ground for HIV? Does it detail the tremendous risk of engaging in the "cruising" behavior? Does it point out the places where a lot of men (that don't want to get caught) go to engage in anonymous sodomite encounters? Does the CDC warn children to not succumb to the advances of men who attempt to draw them into this profligate lifestyle? No, it doesn't--but it does say this--Stigma and homophobia may have a profound impact on the lives of MSM, especially their mental and sexual health.
The subject article from the Center for DISEASE CONTROL gives no warning against the dangers of the sodomite lifestyle--the promiscuity, the risky activities (such as chance encounters in public bathrooms, parks, bathhouses, and acts (not to be mentioned) that land them in hospital emergency rooms, etc.) , and so on. Instead, CDC, of all organizations, deflects the blame from the obvious health dangers of sodomy and instead places the blame on those that acknowledge that sodomy is wrong. With all the statistics and proof right in front of their eyes, the "experts" deny the obvious answer. Is CDC really about controlling disease? And whatever happened to a several/individual house and quarantine for people who have dreaded, serious (sometimes fatal), contagious diseases?
*** IN 2006, THE YOUNG HAD THE MOST NEW HIV INFECTIONS (IN THE BLACK AND LATINO COMMUNITIES) ***
According the CDC, in 2006, amongst black and latino sodomites, THERE WERE MORE NEW HIV INFECTIONS AMONGST THE YOUNGEST AGE GROUP (aged 13-29 years)--In 2006...Among all black MSM, there were more new HIV infections (52%) among young black MSM (aged 13-29 years) than any other racial or ethnic age group of MSM in 2006.
...Among all Hispanic/Latino MSM in 2006, the largest number of new infections (43%) occurred in the youngest age group (13-29 years), though a substantial number of new HIV infections (35%) were among those aged 30-39 years.

WOULD ANY REASONABLE PERSON, LOOKING AT THESE STATISTICS, SAY THAT SODOMITE TRAINING IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS IS GOOD? Should we expect to see more or less sick and dying HIV-infected children as a result of the training? Should we expect to more or fewer sodomites? The training is going on in schools at all grade levels (the children are trapped in the classrooms). Can we expect to see more or less sodomites? What happens to children that enter that world at five or six years old? "That's too young," you may say. It happens. A woman told me that her six year old son was effeminate--I was introduced to him and saw it first hand, not second hand.
Boys and girls that are being "sexualized" into whoredom--which is actually "inciting minors to debauchery." I read that in law, "infants" is a legal classification for those who are considered disabled and unable to make good decisions for themselves. Even according to man's long-standing* law books what these teachers of lies are doing is wrong *[I say "long-standing" because there is a group furiously trying to destroy all old things and laws while it simultaneously seeks to rewrite all books, history, etc.]. To "sexualize" children is unlawful. It is inciting minors to debauchery.
Children are being "sexualized" into whoredom from the earliest ages. A woman in a store commented on my daughter's skirt. She said that her six year-old granddaughter wanted to wear a "g-string". I have a first aid book that says that children have a natural modesty and to be aware of this when trying to help them--what had her granddaughter seen that made her want to walk around like that?
I watched a video about serial killer Ted Bundy done the night before his execution. Bundy said that the pornography that he saw growing up (which warped his mind) was nothing compared to what was on cable television at that time (this interview with James Dobson was done years ago. Bundy said that more killers would arise.
Merely a cursory look at that underworld of sodomy and whoredom puts one in the midst of a nightmare world. By God's grace alone, I lived through it and, though I am saved today, how I rue the years that I was ever involved in it. And yet, the information that children are hearing today is far more than what I heard in school. I didn't even know that there was a such thing as a "homosexual" until I was almost out of high school. And even after I heard something about it, I did not realize that black men could be "homosexuals." I did not find that out until I was in college. I thought that it was for other kinds of people, people of a different race. But now, the hapless children are watching tv and movies and seeing naked moves and looking at books about masturbation and learning about sodomy, etc. ***IN SCHOOL***.
Where are the parents? Where were mine when I was watching Disney and going to the movie theatre and school? Who questioned what I was learning? I did not have it in me to ask any questions, I was just a blank slate expected to absorb whatever came my way. Where are the parents? Maybe just laid back and trusting the schoo system. Meanwhile the school system and the television are turning our children into sots, whores, whoremongers, witches, sodomites, etc.
Why did Disney create the movie Peter Pan? After a conversation with someone who had been negatively affected by seeing a Peter Pan movie, I looked up information about the author of the book about Peter Pan. One article I found included an excerpt of the book--it was obviously a description of an incident of pedophilia. What kind of spirits are let loose by those Disney movies?
*** IT IS NOT REASON ***
Pushing sodomite clubs, sensitivity training, etc. is not reason. If it is not reason, one could ask, why is it being done? I perceive that there are undoubtedly a number of reasons for this (from what I have read in the scriptures and seen and heard, it makes people vile, compulsive, and impulsive and it is hard to get out of it. It keeps people feeding on their lusts and focused on them continuously--meanwhile the masters of the present do as they will), however for the current discussion, we'll look at the sodomite desire to sodomize children and to introduce more people into sodomy.
According to one pro-sodomite website, the following was written as "satire" (how can, "We shall sodomize your sons" be considered "satire"? How is committing that wicked criminal act "satire"? What is a "hate crime" if that is not one?) for a sodomite newspaper in 1987, but given what I've heard and seen, it doesn't look one bit like satire. It looks like it is coming to pass. It is said that this article found its way into the Congressional Record. The reader may not want to read it. It is only here for proof. Those who may want to know the tenor of the article may want to only read what is in bold. After this is a further excerpt from the CDC article. This was copied from the internet (emphases ours. Fair use.). [Update: This is an excerpt only--the article is too grievous, I am sorry that all of it was previously published in this article. Brackets and emphases ours]--Michael Swift
First Published in Gay Community News, Feb. 15-21, 1987
WE SHALL SODOMIZE YOUR SONS, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them IN YOUR SCHOOLS, IN YOUR DORMITORIES, IN YOUR GYMNASIUMS, IN YOUR LOCKER ROOMS, IN YOUR SPORTS ARENAS, IN YOUR SEMINARIES, IN YOUR YOUTH GROUPS, IN YOUR MOVIE THEATER BATHROOMS, IN YOUR ARMY BUNKHOUSES, IN YOUR TRUCK STOPS, IN YOUR ALL MALE CLUBS, IN YOUR HOUSES OF CONGRESS, wherever men are with men together. YOUR SONS SHALL BECOME OUR MINIONS AND DO OUR BIDDING. They will be recast in our image. [OUR NOTE: STOP WATCHING TELEVISION!!! GET YOUR CHILDREN OUT OF THE SCHOOL SYSTEM!!! STOP SUBSCRIBING TO THE NEWSPAPER!!! NO RADIO!!!, ETC. !!! GET THE HOLINESS AND OBEDIENCE WORK/PRODUCTIVITY LIFESTYLE AND LEARN A NEW WAY! THERE IS ANOTHER WAY TO LIVE. SEE The Deliverance Series for ideas on constructing a calm, Christian life.] [...]
All laws banning homosexual activity will be revoked. Instead, legislation shall be passed which engenders love between men.
All homosexuals must stand together as brothers; we must be united artistically, philosophically, socially, politically and financially. We will triumph only when we present a common face to the vicious heterosexual enemy.
If you dare to cry faggot, fairy, queer, at us, we will stab you in your cowardly hearts and defile your dead, puny bodies.
[...deleted section notes their entrance into the public light by: sodomite poetry, plays, films, cinema, statues, paintings, writers, artists, setting styles, wit and ridicule devices (noted as things they are skilled in employing).]
We will unmask the powerful homosexuals who masquerade as heterosexuals. You will be shocked and frightened when you find that your presidents and their sons, your industrialists, your senators, your mayors, your generals, your athletes, your film stars, your television personalities, your civic leaders, your priests are not the safe, familiar, bourgeois, heterosexual figures you assumed them to be. We are everywhere; we have infiltrated your ranks. Be careful when you speak of homosexuals because we are always among you; we may be sitting across the desk from you; we may be sleeping in the same bed with you.
There will be no compromises. We are not middle-class weaklings. Highly intelligent, we are the natural aristocrats of the human race, and steely-minded aristocrats never settle for less. Those who oppose us will be exiled.
We shall raise vast private armies, as Mishima did, to defeat you. [deleted section notes reference to sodomite warriors and "Greek soldiers." There is a history of sodomite warrior societies.]
The family unit-spawning ground of lies, betrayals, mediocrity, hypocrisy and violence--will be abolished. The family unit, which only dampens imagination and curbs free will, must be eliminated. Perfect boys will be conceived and grown in the genetic laboratory. [deleted section contains reference to sodomites being their children's teachers.]
All churches who condemn us will be closed. Our only gods are handsome young men. We adhere to a cult of beauty, moral and esthetic. All that is ugly and vulgar and banal will be annihilated. Since we are alienated from middle-class heterosexual conventions, we are free to live our lives according to the dictates of the pure imagination. For us too much is not enough.
[deleted section...plans for their imaged world. Only room for sodomite men, others invisible.]
We shall rewrite history, history filled and debased with your heterosexual lies and distortions. We shall portray the homosexuality of the great leaders and thinkers who have shaped the world. [our note: there is a such thing as revisionist history, there are people who rewrite whatever history they want to. People are ignorant and they send their children to schools where they learn many lies (this happened to me).]
We shall be victorious because we are fueled with the ferocious bitterness of the oppressed who have been forced to play seemingly bit parts in your dumb, heterosexual shows throughout the ages. We too are capable of firing guns and manning the barricades of the ultimate revolution [our note: we can see what happened in Sodom and with the Levite. The sodomites did indeed shew themselves fierce, on fire of their ferocious lust that sought to force (rape) new strangers in town within hours of their arrival.].
Tremble, hetero swine, when we appear before you without our masks.
Perilous times were foretold.II Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
And we continue in the things that we we have learned in the word of God (the Authorized Version of 1611 of the Bible).II Timothy 3:14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
More from the CDC report--HIV and AIDS Diagnoses and Deaths
A recent CDC study found that in 2008 one in five (19%) MSM in 21 major US cities were infected with HIV, and nearly half (44%) were unaware of their infection. In this study, 28% of black MSM were HIV-infected, compared to 18% of Hispanic/Latino MSM and 16% of white MSM. Other racial/ethnic groups of MSM also have high numbers of HIV infections, including American Indian/Alaska Native MSM (20%) and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander MSM (18%). In 2007, MSM were 44 to 86 times as likely to be diagnosed with HIV compared with other men, and 40 to 77 times as likely as women.
From 2005-2008, estimated diagnoses of HIV infection increased approximately 17% among MSM. This increase was likely due to a combination of factors: increases in new infections, increased testing, and diagnosis earlier in the course of infection; it may also have been due to uncertainty in statistical models.
In 2008, an estimated 17,940 MSM were diagnosed with AIDS in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the US dependent areas--an increase of 6% since 2005. By the end of 2007, an estimated 282,542 MSM with an AIDS diagnosis had died in the United States and 5 dependent areas.
The high prevalence of HIV infection among MSM means they face a greater risk of being exposed to infection with each sexual encounter--especially as they get older
Sexual risk accounts for most HIV infections in MSM. These risks include unprotected sex and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). The practice of not using a condom during anal sex with someone other than a primary, HIV-negative partner continues to pose a significant threat to the health of MSM.
Alcohol and illicit drug use contributes to increased risk for HIV infection and other STDs among MSM. The use of substances such as alcohol and other drugs can increase the likelihood of risky sexual behavior.
Many MSM with HIV are unaware of their HIV infection, especially MSM of color AND YOUNG MSM. A recent CDC study found that among urban MSM in 21 cities in 2008 who were unaware of their HIV infection, 55% had not been tested in the previous 12 months. Low awareness of HIV status among young MSM likely reflects several factors: they may have been infected more recently, may underestimate their personal risk, may have had fewer opportunities to get tested, or may believe that HIV treatment minimize the threat of HIV. [How about they are young and reckless, without parental protections, inexperienced, fooled, etc.?] CDC recommends that all MSM get tested for HIV once a year--and more often if they are at higher risk. MSM at higher risk includes those who have multiple or anonymous sex partners or use drugs during sex.
Stigma and homophobia may have a profound impact on the lives of MSM, especially their mental and sexual health.
Racism, poverty, and lack of access to health care are barriers to HIV prevention services, particularly for MSM from racial or ethnic minority communities. A recent CDC study found a strong link between socioeconomic status and HIV among MSM: prevalence increased as education and income decreased, and awareness of HIV status was higher among MSM with greater education and income.
Complacency about HIV may play a key role in HIV risk, particularly among young MSM. Since young MSM did not experience the severity of the early HIV epidemic, some may falsely believe that HIV is no longer a serious health threat because of treatment advances and decreased mortality. Additional challenges for many MSM include maintaining safe behaviors over time and underestimating personal risk.
What CDC Is Doing
In fiscal year 2009, 43% of CDC's Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention's budget was targeted towards MSM and MSM-IDU [2% of the people get 43% of the
