I think anyone, to tell you the truth. Because, HIV doesn't discriminate, and that puts everyone at risk for HIV criminalization. That's what is really wrong about these laws. It's dividing communities into people who have HIV and those who don't, and I think that's a real danger, when we start making those divisions and we start criminalizing one and not the other, especially when we're all at risk for HIV.
