Let me, a hetero HIV neg person explain what he probably meant: he probably meant he has only recently acknowledged his sexuality to himself. I hardly believe in a million years that he will tell you he was born straight! Secondly, becoming infected is not anyone's fault unless it was done to someone intentionally. It is not HIS FAULT OR his partner's FAULT. It is a disease, not an opportunity to play the blame game. Thirdly, DON'T CAll it STUPID when someone neglects to use protection. We ALL have been in this situation in our lives - so NO ONE is in the position to be making judgements on this man. LASTLY, SHAME ON YOU for being so cruel.
