The only obstacle is that no one else is tested. Sheesh, when you start testing everyone you'll see that there's a ton of straight folks with it too, which would explain why it's still spreading like wildfire.

You bring up an interesting point. If these people are so convinced they can't have HIV there should be no reason for them to object to universal testing.

I have seen it, even heard a junkie claim that since she was straight she had no risk of HIV. It's disturbing, only the lesbians in the shelters got tested, and more were voluntary, they cared about their health. Most were perfectly healthy entering the shelters too, some got that ... erm, forgot the name of it but you catch it through any contact with anyone who has it and it can't be cured, anyway, they got it because of the lunch servers, who were still never made to be tested, which makes you wonder if you can even trust touching something a straight person has even touched now. Personally, I prefer gay people serving my food or such even in restaurants, it sounds so wrong to say it that way but I'm not being stereotypical, I'm basing that on real life experiences. I don't have sex, don't want it, don't need it, why should I be placed at risk just because some straight person thinks they're "blessed" or some other nonsense? It's simply not right to paint the only people you can actually ask "will you make me sick if I touch you?" and get not only an honest, but an accurate answer as the bad people here just because they actually know more about their health.

Sad that you judge people based on such shallow and extremely easy to alter traits. Perhaps one day you will grow up, I hope it's before you turn 60 though, because after that, it's all downhill.

I suspect it's been downhill for that poster shortly following fertilization.

What do you need to actually make sense? Only a working brain. Sadly, they were all out when you were up.
