unless you've been living under a rock, you know how the HIV/AIDS disease is spread.
I guess some people are just too stupid to care.

Why didn't you leave him and have children and a better life with someone else?
Your parents didn't create you to sacrifice your happiness for someone else.
I would not want my daughter to stay married to a diseased person and lose her chance to become a mother and live a normal life.

Why are black men so much more stupid than everybody else?
Everybody else has realized that you have to use protection, especially in gay male sex.
Why are black men the only ones who don't know this, while everybody else around them knows?
Just dumb men.

Ok... well my phone won't let.me actually reply to you... but anyway... we live a completly normal life... just because he has HIV does not mean he is not worthy of my love. Besides there are millions of babies in the world with no parents to love them... i would never want to bring another child into the world when i can easily make a difference in an orphans life. My husband and i have a solid normal life that compares to any relationship in Which you consider normal

Excuse me Aunt Jemima, but Black men are not the only people who have ever been HIV positive. In the 80's and 90's everyone thought HIV and AIDS was mostly a gay white man's disease. When I first moved here to San Francisco women from all over America knitted a blanket to bring awareness to AIDS and their sons who had passed --- all white women. Unless, you are a virgin you'll also understand a lot of men regardless of race enjoy going bareback. They take risks. It's just that statistically, black men don't bother themselves to see a doctor until it's too late, and this transcends all areas of health maintenance for black men.

Pick up a paper, magazine, or book on the history of AIDS and READ it before rattling off so stupidly. I know it's hard, because you come here every day to demonstrate how miserable you are, but atleast make an effort to KNOW something before talking about it.

Men don't have a biological clock, they can start over, anytime.
Women can't.
Maybe you should consider a sperm donor, so you and your parents are not also blighted by your husband's misfortune.
(which is HIS, not yours or your parents').

I don't think human beings are worthy of sacrifice, especially not men.
If a man stays loyal to a sick wife, when she's passed on, he can start over, make a family.
But women can't.
Women should not forget that they have a clock ticking and when they hit their mid 40s, baby making time is OVER.

Understand that the character you are talking to is a VERY mixed up woman. She's better known as Salidbar. She doesn't understand the concept of unconditional love or an actual lasting relationship. All she does is set on the outside looking in at others in order to pass judgement. She has a child of her own whose father abandoned both of them. Salidbar should be the LAST person you'd want to adhere advice from. She doesn't understand anything functional and has absolutely NO desire to.

Just some food for thought.

Read the fcking report highlighted by the OP.
In the first decade of the 21st Centuary black men aged 13 to 24 are being infected with HIV/Aids at a much faster rate than anyone else in America.
AAs make up 13% of the population but almost half of the new HIV/Aids infections and half the deaths (BM being 75% of these).

You guys are not living in some isolated village in West Africa, you are living in America!
Why is it that the message to use protection has got through to everybody except you guys?
AA men have the fastest rising HIV/Aids infection rate for any group of males in the developed world.

Her man's living under a self imposed death sentence!
I'm asking her to think of her own interests, make plans for when he's gone.

"Nationwide, 38 percent of blacks between the ages of 13-24 were infected with HIV in 2010"

How could this happen in a wealthy developed country?
HOW!!!!
And what percentage of AA men aged 13 to 24 indulge in homosexual sex?

I just told you one of the reason WHY the rate is rising. Oh wait! As usual you only listen to your own posts. That's probably why your baby's daddy got as far away from you as humanely possible and you are alone raising that child by yourself. God help the kid.

For a long time black people didn't think they could get HIV. Bi and gay black men are vilified to the point that coming out for them might be life threatening in a black community. Have you listened to preachers in some black churches? I'd be afraid of coming out too. You need to understand the cultural REASONS as to why the number have risen Salidbar. It's easy to set back and blabber endlessly about, "Oh the black guys have this AIDS thing", but if you don't understand or care about what the data really suggests then you're just venting drivel.

I just told you how.

Black men don't generally like going to the doctor until something really bad occurs. At other times some people haven't had access to adequate medical care. The virus isn't always transmitted through sex. Intravenous drug use has also been a culprit. We have people in this society FAR removed from the realities of HIV awareness.

It should be simple to understand.

Good luck getting Salidbar to understand any of that.

Anyway, its good that you love your husband and are happy in your marriage.

That's priceless.
