    (1) Read alongside your comment in another thread (http://www.landlordzone.co.uk/forums...nor#post134575, posts 5 and 6) which seemed to me to imply that homosexuality carried with it connotation of paedophilia, it did not appear to me that your concern was for the sexual health of the participants in the postulated birth-rate reduction experiment (which in any case was probably not meant as a serious suggestion), but was just another example of gay-bashing.

    (2) "Sex" can include activities which do not carry with them a substantially increased risk of HIV transmission.

      Your response (above) makes some sense in relation to #199, where the question of STDs is revisited (although not entirely seriously, it has to be said). As a 'response' to #200 and #203, one can but conclude that you have missed the point, or chosen to substitute your own. I would disagree that it is a useful 'response' since it does not engage with what is put forward in those posts; it avoids it.

              I'm sure that you're not deliberately misunderestanding. It's hardly shortsighted of me, or anyone else, to want the innocent to be protected. The comment which you quote (a protest against another member's reprehensible jibe) was not the first to be taken out of context lately!
