Speaking to Michelangelo Signorile on SiriusXM radio, Tennessee State Senator Stacey Campfield (R) claimed on Thursday that it was nearly impossible to get AIDS through heterosexual sex.
Sen. Campfield said: “Most people realize that AIDS came from the homosexual community. It was one guy screwing a monkey, if I recall correctly, and then having sex with men. It was an airline pilot, if I recall.My understanding is that it is virtually — not completely, but virtually — impossible to contract AIDS through heterosexual sex.”
“(Homosexuals) do not naturally reproduce,” Sen. Campfield continued. “It has not been proven that it is nature. It happens in nature, but so does beastiality. That does not make it right or something we should be teaching in school.”
While it accepted that HIV probably crossed species from chimps to humans, there is no evidence that this was caused by bestiality, but rather African bushman butchering and consuming simian meat.
According to the the Center for Disease Control, male-to-male sexual contact has been the most common way to transmit AIDS, followed by injection drug use and heterosexual sex.
