I don't mind if you "disrespect" or even hate me, but what I do mind is "have a nice day" answers to difficult questions. AIDS is a horrible disease that so long as it is confined to queers, or blacks, or drug users, or prostitutes is often ignored. It was only when it spread to the white, straight population, that people paid attention.

We people with AIDS have to assure that this disease stops in our time. I don't want another person to have to worry over a blood test simply because they made love to another person. I don't want another person to have to live for decades with the social stigma of AIDS.

Fighting back is what gives us courage, banding together is what gives us strength. People with AIDS are not victims to be pitied.

Monchichi, I respect that you have to live your life in a way that works for you, but please, please remember that there are a lot of us, myself included, who can remember other, darker days when people with AIDS in the US were left to die alone in their own shit in isolation wards. We made a promise to the dead that we would never stop until AIDS was eliminated from the world and all people were joined in brotherly love regardless of race, religion or who they loved.
