  •  That's how Cameron "studied" gay male lifespans (9+ / 0-)

    By comparing the ages of death in obits in the Washington Blade during the height of the AIDS epidemic to ages of death in obits in the Washington Post.

    Aside from the issue that untreated HIV certainly does shorten one's lifespan (as does untreated kidney disease, cancer, diabetes or heart diease), there is a HUGE problem with that "methodology" - you cannot gauge lifespans only by looking at ages of those who died; you have to factor in the living people as well. It is the equivalent of estimating the effectiveness of neo-natal intensive care units by averaging the lifespans of the premies who didn't survive and claiming the ICUs don't work.

    A government that denies gay men the right to bridal registry is a facist state - Margaret Cho
