Are HIV positive African heterosexual men lying about their sexuality? ?

HIV is extremely rare for a man to get from women, it's very hard to get from Woman to a man, maybe 1 in 10,000 unprotected act. 

Are the men in Africa lying about their sexuality??

because homosexuality or bisexuality is taboo in African society 

Update:

Dry sex is hiv risk for woman, not for the man. How is dry sex will make man more infectious? It can break the condom but I am talking about sex without condom, men aren't at risk of HIV

    if you have sex with a person that has HIV you have a high likelihood of catching HIV whether you are a male or a female.

    and HIV is not just a sexually transmitted disease you can also get it from sharing needles or a blood donation.

    All it takes is for infected vaginal fluid to get inside the opening of the urethra in males, (piss slit) with it being much easier to do if a male is uncircumcised in addition to the unkertinized skin around the penis, so it's really as hard as you think it is for a man to contract HIV from a woman. Granted it's a lot less likely than it is for a woman to contract HIV from a man but far from impossible for a man to contract HIV from woman.

    No. HIV is a straight disease in Africa. I don't know where you got those numbers, but it's not that hard to pass, particularly via "dry sex."

    No, in Africa, HIV is a heterosexual disease far more than it is a homosexual disease.

    Bull. It's clearly NOT "extremely rare" for heterosexual men to contract it FROM women or to pass it TO heterosexual women.  The majority of HIV-infected patients in Africa today are HETEROSEXUAL women and their children, followed by HETEROSEXUAL men, followed by homosexual men, followed distantly by homosexual women.

    It's been well-established that HIV entered the human population in Africa via the consumption of wild game (specifically simians that were infected with a human-compatible mutation of the Simian Immunodeficiency Virus).  This game is likely to have been eaten by heterosexuals, homosexuals, and bisexuals.

    There's NO basis to conclude that heterosexual transmission of HIV is "extremely rare" and our experience in Africa is actually conclusive evidence AGAINST that assertion.  The fact that HIV is most common in the USA among young men who have sex with men seems to be due to the American long-haul truck drivers preferring sex at their home locations to sex on the road...which is likely due to the financial premium American trucking firms place on timely deliveries, as well as the peculiar character of the American interstate highway system.  In Africa, HIV is primarily spread by heterosexual truck drivers, who have more time and opportunity for sexual liaisons en route than American drivers do.

    (However, there are those who would propagate fake news in order to preserve their stereotype of HIV as a disease that should be blamed on homosexuals.  That is cruelly irresponsible, because it leads heterosexual teenagers to believe that they are immune, so they don't worry about safe sex, which makes them vulnerable.  Essentially, you're making kids vulnerable to HIV in order to promote your bigotry.)

    HIV infects ANY human regardless of sexual orientation, and can be passed FROM any human TO any human.  NO HUMAN is protected by virtue of transmission between two particular sorts of person being "extremely rare".  That's simply FALSE.

    (Gawd!  Bigots who'd sacrifice KIDS to promote their prejudices REALLY tick me off!)

    No, HIV isn't only transferred through 'gay sex', as you're implying. Blood, semen, rectal fluids, vaginal fluids, and even breast milk, are all forms in which HIV can be transmitted. There's also from mother to child during pregnancy, getting stuck with an HIV-contaminated needle, oral sex with someone who is positive, receiving blood transfusions, blood products, or organ/tissue transplants that are contaminated by HIV, being bitten by someone with HIV, contact between broken skin, wounds, or mucous membranes and HIV-infected blood or blood-contaminated body fluids, deep open-mouth kissing if both partners have sores or bleeding gums and one is HIV positive, eating food that has been pre-chewed by a person with HIV... the list goes on. Somethings can be avoided, but there are cases where it cannot. It doesn't all have to do with sex. ANYONE with HIV isn't necessarily lying about how they contracted it.

    Maybe they're intravenous drug users with a taste for getting high, but not for penis

    There are other ways to get HIV. Like drug addicts sharing needles.
