Aids - it's the lifestyle that matters

I FEEL that Dr Alan Chin's article, 'Beware the high-risk 'gay lifestyle' ' (ST, Aug 8), is biased and lopsided.

I do not support a gay lifestyle but on the issue of Aids, I feel that one's lifestyle, not a specific group, plays a vital role.

Anyone who engages in a high-risk lifestyle, like having unprotected sex, multi-partners or sharing hypodermic needles, for example, risks contacting Aids, be they heterosexual, bisexual, homosexual or transsexual.

I hope that the Government can focus more in educating the people on safe sex but let's not target specific groups.
