I have mixed feelings to begin with. Most who have the disease have it because of irresponsible or "immoral" conduct. Very few get it through medical procedures, blood transfusions, accidental cuts, accidental needle pokes, or assault (eg., jabbing a cop with a syringe).

That said, it seems it is time for someone other than the government to show their a**es in DC for a change.

One thing that gets me here is the apparent sexism. The women were arrested, but the men were allowed to get away with it. That doesn't seem fair. Unless they round up the guys involved, I think they should just let the women go. They could argue in court that their indecent exposure was a part of protected political activities under federal jurisdiction and is covered by the First Amendment. At least it was just nudity and not self-immolation.

Sexism? ROTFLMFGDAO!!! Read the story again...the men didn't linger around like the women - they fled the building - hence the flappy-mouthed women who stuck around got arrested.

"The three women were arrested by Capitol Police as they mingled with other protesters in the hall outside Boehner's district office after putting their clothes back on. The naked male protesters appeared to have left."

And to state, "Most who have the disease have it because of irresponsible or "immoral" conduct," is misleading and quite untrue. That part of your statement cannot be proven - homosexual or heterosexual behavior, either or, are designated by diagnosis, not moralities.

You take a sh*tload of liberties with the facts, however, as usual - the red herrings will now flop all over the place.

Totally disagree with your position re most people who have aids deserve it because of their "irresponsible or immoral conduct".
Gotta say, I am angered and offended by what you wrote. And disappointed in you personally.

My view is protesting naked is generally not a positive way to promote an important position on an equally important issue.

It's truly amazing that HH never brings anything pertinent or subjective to the table on any thread that he posts on - he can't even follow the simple alphabet.

Pretty sad for a cyber-educator.

Sex outside of legal heterosexual marriage has always been immoral for humans, and promiscuity is a perversion of the natural use of the human body. Maybe your body is made for non-stop sex with infected persons, but mine is not.

Others might not like my posts. That is fine. What I do when I find stuff I dislike is ignore it and get away from the people who post or say it. I don't watch a television show I hate just to get evidence to try to take to the sponsors to force the show off the air. You don't have to like anyone's post. You can just skip them, particularly when you hate the other person so much and wish death on them. I usually share my opinions without addressing anyone specific. I try to always address issues and never people. The more "personal" or "social" someone is, the more evil they are. Others could have posted directly about the article to, and did so to the entire room without referencing other posters, just like me. However, some had the need to denigrate and bully anyone who doesn't push their warped agenda.

Do you know it is possible to disagree with ideas without disagreeing with persons? Do you know it is possible to disagree without attacking? Do you know it is possible to show disagreement without actually disagreement? It is, like if I say the sky is green, you can post saying the sky is orange. So by saying the sky is orange, you are saying it is not green and just giving a fact as you perceive it.

So again, most who have AIDS did something to get it that they could have avoided. If that offends you, then you need to stop doing those behaviors, or if you have it, admit that you did something wrong to get the disease and forgive yourself for your mistake. Forgiveness and healing can only come when we admit to ourselves that we are wrong. Not to others, though there can be healing in that too (or it turns into a bragging session like in a typical AA meeting).

Sorry about your HIV. I am disappointed that you were not strong enough to avoid being offended and disappointed. Strong people see things they dislike and move on, not dwell on them. My post was not to you, so you have no place to get offended, unless you are guilty of what I posted about. I have a fight to express my feelings and to be me. What I shared is a part of who I am, and if you are offended at my message, you are saying that you are offended at me as a person and that I don't have a right to be me.

All sex outside of a legal, heterosexual marriage is irresponsible. And it is more irresponsible to have sex outside the valid boundaries without protective gear. Anal sex is the most risky type of sex, and while I am with Dr. Koop (Reagan's surgeon general) who said it should never be practiced, I will also say that if you do it, it should always be with a condom.

No it has not - maybe in you ficticious world it is, but not in the real world.

I'd ask you prove your statements again, but we still haven't found a home for all the red herring you dumped in here that last time you "tried" to prove your statements as fact.

If it weren't for sex outside of legal heterosexual marriage, the oldest profession in the world would've never came about.

Face it - you're wrong.

Thanks for your admission in advance.

Yes it has been. If you were a good person, you would not care who is wrong. G'day.
