Now, contrast that with how the hip crowd handles the correlation between high-risk behavior (especially of the homosexual variety) and the incidence of HIV-AIDS. One can even hear the crickets for a moment before the torrent of abuse gushes forth that we are stigmatizing people. Don't be a hater, you bigot!
Now, I wouldn't wish diabetes or AIDS on anybody, for any reason. But the probability that person X who just contracted HIV was engaging in some sort of very risky behavior, sexual or drug-related, is much higher, I think, than that Paula Deen's diet is the direct, sole cause of her diabetes. But then, there are folks whom we are allowed -- nay, encouraged -- to blame and folks we are forbidden to, it seems, regardless of evidence or explanation.
