It’s been reported that approximately 165,000 people in the U.S. are HIV positive and they don’t even know it. Another 943,000 million people in the U.S. are aware that they are.
Based on the editor of Queerty magazine, a publication that is focused on all things homosexual, you should put away your fears of contracting HIV and truly consider having sex with people who are HIV positive because you don’t’ know what you’re missing out on.
According to The Blaze,
The editor of Queerty, a progressive online magazine and newspaper, encouraged readers to put aside their fears of catching HIV and strongly consider dating and even having sex with people who are infected with the virus that causes AIDS.
In “What you stand to lose by not having sex with people with HIV,” David Hudson argues that gay men should consider “the potential consequences of [their] particular decisions” not to have sex with individuals who have HIV. “Refusing to entertain the idea of dating an HIV-positive person might just mean you miss out on the love of your life,” he said.
“If you find yourself single and contemplating why, bear in mind it might be because you blocked ‘Mr Right’ when you read he was HIV positive on Grindr,” the editor said.
Hudson concludes, “Of course, some will say, ‘My perfect man doesn’t HIV!’ Well, I hope you’re not too old before you realize: Nobody’s perfect.”
This is an absolute ignorant position to take on the matter. It’s not as though having HIV is just some minor flaw like having an overbite or you’re missing the tip of your finger. No, being HIV positive is on another level.
Being HIV positive means that basically at any given time, you may contract the AIDS virus and die. So here’s my warning, stay away from a disease known to kill people.
