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.


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 (talk) 01:54, 2 October 2013 (UTC)
