I always wondered if Isiah was gay/bisexual, more so than Magic.

I remember reading that someone left needles with blood on it on the city bus and someone got HIV because it transfered into their blood. It was in the local papers and ****.

Seriously. WTF is up with some of these comments? It'd be funny if it weren't so sad and potentially dangerous.

I know that africans can cantract the disease easier. But that doesn't match what you said before about many famous black people being closet gays. Just because black people are more susceptible to getting the disease, it doesn't mean they are more likely to be gay...

Those stories you have heard are urban myths and nothing more. HIV from blood transfusions was possible in the 70s and 80s but now with our knowledge of HIV/AIDS it's basically impossible.
I said many famous blacks are closet gays because this thread is about a black guy, not a white guy or an asian guy or anything else.

What's your take on HIV transmission then? How can it be transferred? I remember learning in health class that STD's can be transferred by blood, semen, breastmilk, and some other method.

for that to happen the needle would have had to penetrate through the person's veins into the bloodstream with a significant amount of the virus inside the syringe. and it would have to be a syringe and not just a regular needle because the virus dies immediately on contact with air.
and the syringe would have to been filled with hiv blood obviously, because hiv isn't just created out of thin air.

the only way in the United States you can get HIV is from unprotected **** sex and from sharing needles with someone infected with HIV. thats all you need to know.

It's rare, but it can happen:

You can get HIV by breast feeding if the mother has it.

And if a mother is pregnant and has HIV, there is a good chance the baby is infected as well.

Maybe he got HIV because he had unprotected sex with any woman that walked the face of the earth.

Maybe in the past, but there are drugs given to HIV infected mothers that all but eliminate any possible risk of the child getting it. Now, the biggest danger for an HIV-infected mother transmitting the virus is if she doesn't know she has it.

I always assumed Magic and Isiah might both be bi. I had family saying it before Magic turned up with aids.
