I can’t even believe I have to point out the difference once again to these Dogsbite.org idiots. First it was rape/sexual assault– now it’s AIDS.
Let’s take a peek at the convo-
In 2010, an estimated 217 children younger than the age of 13 years were diagnosed with HIV in the 46 states with long-term, confidential name-based HIV infection reporting since at least 2007; 162 (75%)1 of those children were perinatally infected.
From the beginning of the epidemic through 2009, an estimated 5,626 people who were diagnosed with AIDS when they were younger than 13 years died in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Of the total, 4,986 (89%) of them were infected perinatally.
I wonder if Wendy Keillor would care to inform the family members of the deceased children or those living their young innocent lives with HIV/AIDS just how NOT dangerous AIDS/HIV is. Oh- I forget. These victims and deaths do not matter to them because they are not pit bull victims.
This is one of my biggest problems with these people. The constantly compare their issue of paranoia and fear with issues that affect not just the US but GLOBALLY.
Chronic wasting (weight loss) from HIV infection
Cryptosporidium enterocolitis (or other protozoal infections)
Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) infection
Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia (previously called Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia or PCP)
Salmonella infection in the bloodstream
Tuberculosis (in the lungs or spread throughout the body)
Viral infection of the brain (progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy)
How about Dog Bite Fatalities?
42 MILLION victims compared to 276…
I’m not saying DBF are not tragic because they are but stop comparing dog attacks to a global epidemic. It just doesn’t make any sense and to be down right honest- it’s INSULTING
Now- it was awfully kind of Ms. Keillor to offer up her suggestion that pit bull owners need to have mental health evaluations but I really do feel that her Dogsbite.org members might need it a bit more:
FYI Mr. Knop- many times, people are infected with HIV/AIDS unknowingly. They live symptom free for many years- they infect other people, then those other people infect other people. Do you get the picture now?
To state that pit bulls kill daily is false and that makes you guilty of spreading false propaganda based on fear and lies.
However- here is the truth:
