One of the whacky twists on a gay dating show on a gay cable network is that one of the contestants has HIV. This is important, according to the gay producers, because they have to remove the “stigma” of HIV. Because, you know, the last thing we would want people to think is that maybe dating someone with a contagious, life-altering (and wholly preventable) disease is something that one might think twice about.
Host Lance Bass confirmed the news Monday, following reports that a contestant’s positive diagnosis will become a main storyline on the show. “This is one of the things I love about the show — it’s a fun reality show, it’s dramatic, but there’s a lot of heart in it and amazing storylines that you’re going to shed a tear over,” he told People Now. “And one of those is finding about this guy’s HIV.”
Do they want to create more bug-chasers? Because this is how you create more bug-chasers. To a certain kind of personality type, the attention and sympathy one gets as a hero of the HIV victim group is very appealing.
There’s also a bit of tokenism going on in this. It’s like, “Hey, guess what, one of the contestants is going to turn out to be a black guy. You’ll never guess which one it is.”
Because that’s what the left does; it objectifies people based on their ability to fit into a certain social cubbyhole: Black, Trans, Mohammedan, HIV-positive, et cetera. Because people are not so much individuals to the left but symbols of whatever ethnic or social group they belong to by virtue of skin color, native ethnicity, sexual proclivity, or disease-having-status.
The HIV positive dating show contestant — like the hijab-wearing Olympic woman — is just an object sociopathic leftists can use to virtue-signal to one another.
Fortunately, nobody watches Logo anyway.
