There are only two ways this can be offensive.
So if we cannot use these materials, what materials should we use to educate this part of our population on safe sex practice to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases?

Someone's ideology should not deny any group of people services and information.
Joey Peters of the SFReporter also has a story about the removal of materials.
