AIDS came monkeys, but not necessarily through human sexual contact with monkeys. Monkey kidneys were used to make polio vaccines-tainted monkeys were used at a lab in Stanleytown (when the lab ran out of the tested, disease-free monkeys, they started using non-tested local monkeys), not far from where the first HIV/AIDS cases were discovered, in the late 50s, early 60s.
Where the Rev.Wrights of the world get it wrong is in blaming the US for this. It falls under the responsibility of the organization (and it was not the US government) that was using the facility for producing the vaccine for using untested monkeys and then vaccinating the locals who didn't know to ask questions. There's a documentary about it-Salk was aware of the problem with the tainted vaccine, he was highly critical of the german doctor who used it, and had likely connected the dots before he died, as he was working on research into possible vaccinations for AIDS/HIV.
I think the documentary is called "The Orgin Of AIDS". I saw it on cable about a year or so ago.
Although I don't really believe in a "gay gene", this doesn't make sense. There is a couple that live a few blocks from me. Both are "normal" but three of their children are afflicted with albinism. Yes, I studied those little 4 square things in genetics but occasionally the 25% chance increases.
