Caribbean Prison Officials Push For Condoms

Caribbean prison officials are are pushing for more conjugal visits and condom distribution to curb HIV-infection rates among inmates.

And, unfortunately, they also have a big of a gay rape problem: “[Marcus Day of the Association of Caribbean Heads of Corrections and Prison Services] attributed the spread of HIV/AIDS infections in prisons to homosexual relationships among otherwise heterosexual men and homosexual rape, situations he said were rife in Caribbean prisons.”

On a related note, thanks to the AFP journo who made the article’s accompanying picture so digestible!

    Screw giving out condoms….this is a sweet way to thin out the herd. Get rid of a bunch of criminals AND ass pirates at the same time.

    @ cujo are you f***ing serious? This is the exact same line of reasoning that homophobes used when the AIDS crisis hit the gay community.
    You do realize that, most of these criminals would wantonly infect anyone they have sex with (rape or not)regardless of not wether they are aware of their status. What’s worse is that a lot of these hetero identifying men go back to sleeping with women when they get out of prison, further spreading the disease into their community.
