An audio recording of Paris Hilton saying that most gay guys on a sex site probably have AIDS surfaced earlier this week, less than a few weeks after Paris Hilton and Lambert hung out at New York Fashion week.
Paris was talking to one of her gay guy friends about Grindr, a site where gay men reveal their location so that other gay men can have sex with them. Hilton said:
“Eww. Eww. To get f***ed? Gay guys are the horniest people in the world. They’re disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS.”
When Lambert was asked about Paris' comments he replied: “I’m not going to comment on that one. It’s not worth it.”
Gay men have AIDS and straight people, who also have hookup websites, also have AIDS. Gay men are often perceived as being promiscuous and are stereotypically linked to the disease. Meanwhile Hilton, a woman who has hooked up with 50% of the male population in Los Angeles, has no room to talk about who is "the horniest in the world."
But that's how stereotypes work. You have to keep fighting them your entire life due to the ignorance of others, all the while knowing that many of those you associate with are actually just bigots in disguise.
