Homosexuality and AIDS

2 thoughts this morning, brought on primarily by GeekSlut.

1) How much of the "If you're gay, then you must be a Democrat" thought was brought on by the AIDS crisis? Specifically, if several people you know are dying of AIDS [say, back in the 90's] and it's your duty to help them, you're doomed, but if it's the duty of the state, then you're off the hook. I wonder if most of the conservative gays blogging are younger than 30.

2) The first guy I knew who was fully out was in a committed [at least, as far as I know] relationship, and had been for almost 20 years. Which is probably why they were both still alive, and not dead of AIDS.
