The August/September issue of Heart and Soul magazine ran an article about gay married men entitled Brokeback Marriages--The Down Low on Loving A Gay Man.
The article incorrectly referred to the Down Low Dozen tip sheet by infidelity expert Ruth Houston as the Down Low Dozens tip sheet ( with an “s” at the end). It also incorrectly listed the e-mail address to request this free tip sheet, which tells Black women what to look for if they suspect their husband or boyfriend of being on the down low. Instead of DownLowDozen.gmail.com the e-mail address was incorrectly listed as DownLowDozens.gmail.com. Because of this error, women who originally requested the tip sheet using this e-mail address were unable to get it.
Alternate E-mail Address to Request the FREE Tip Sheet
“As soon as I heard about the magazine’s mistake, I immediately set up an 2nd e-mail account using the erroneous e-mail address so as not to disappoint women requesting this vitally important information.“ said infidelity expert Ruth Houston. “As soon as it was activated, requests began pouring in. I shudder to think how many women may have requested the Down Low Dozen tip sheet and failed to get it because of the magazine’s mistake. My concern is that these women, out of frustration, may not bother to try requesting this potentially life-saving information again.”
Meanwhile, the Down Low Dozen tip sheet, which is free, can now be requested from either e-mail address: downlowdozen.gmail.com or downlowdozens.gmail.com with the words “DL dozen” in the subject line.”
Ignorance about the Down Low Contributes to HIV/AIDS Infection
In view of the facts presented in the recent ABC Primetime special, “Out of Control: AIDS in Black America,” I do hope that as a service to their readers, Heart & Soul will print a correction in the next issue and post it on their website as well. The ABC Primetime documentary cited ignorance as one of five reasons why AIDS has reached epidemic proportions in the Black community.”
Houston, founder of www.InfidelityAdvice.com and author of Is He Cheating on You? – 829 Telltale Signs says, “My research indidcates that one of the most prevalent forms of ignorance is our ignorance about how to tell if a man is on the down low. That ignorance invites infection. The down low is not a “Black thing” or a “gay thing” -- it’s an “infidelity thing. It means the man is cheating on his mate with another man -- sometimes with life-threatening consequences.”
A Public Service and a Protective Measure
Last year, Houston, an infidelity expert and author of Is He Cheating on You? – 829 Telltale Signs, compiled the Down Low Dozen tip sheet to give Black women specific guidelines on what to look for if they suspect their husbands or boyfriends of being on the down low. Houston explains, “I did it as a public service for Black women everywhere, in an effort to address some of the ignorance in this area, and dispel the two most common myths associated with how to tell if a man is on the down low.”
“The Down Low Dozen tip sheet is a protective measure,” Houston continues. “ With Black women comprising almost 70% of all newly diagnosed HIV/AIDS cases, and AIDS being one of the leading causes of death in Black women, we really need reliable information on what to look for so we can protect ourselves against heterosexually-contracted HIV/AIDS. It could be a matter of life and death.”
