Article title[edit]

Shouldn't it be Gay-related immune deficiency? Nurg 22:58, 26 March 2006 (UTC)


This page is about the name, rather than the deficiency−is there a wikipedia standard for distinguishin use/mention? perhaps the titel sshould be in quotes?

Politics and slogans[edit]

How is this related to the contention that AIDS (or HIV?) is/was a "gay disease"? We don't even have an article on the term gay disease. --Uncle Ed (talk) 16:59, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

Known scope of the syndrome[edit]

  • founded to combat what appeared to be a homosexual-only disease

The sources our article is citing indicated that less than 100% of the patients were homosexual. For example, the NY Times reported on May 11, 1982 that the syndrome "has developed among some heterosexual women and bisexual and heterosexual men." [1]

We need a better phrase than "homosexual-only disease". It appeared, rather, to be affecting primarily homosexuals.

"suggested"[edit]

That was the name for it before the homosexuals complained. Don't you remember that Frenchy "individual" who banged men in every continent and spread the disease like a wildfire? GRID and homosexuals go hand in hand like gay dick, poppers, and gay anus at the "sauna". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 97.112.83.191 (talk) 01:54, 2 October 2013 (UTC)
