California recently reduced the penalty for deliberately infecting an unsuspecting person with HIV from a felony to a misdemeanor. This was very happy news to the segment of the gay community that celebrates deliberately infecting unsuspecting people with HIV. Chad Felix Greene, on the other hand, thinks this is a bad thing.
[W]hen faced with real-life situations in which HIV+ people intentionally lie about their status and expose or infect others [the LGBT Left] hold tight to their narrative. The story of Michael Johnson, for example, only served to fuel their argument. In 2015 Johnson was convicted of infecting one man and exposing four others. He lied about his status online and intentionally exposed all five men. The Human Rights Campaign spun the story as one of racial oppression and homophobia
I have argued that if every HIV+ gay man alone, even 80% of us, took our medications properly, informed our partners and made responsible sexual choices while vowing to never allow our own virus to escape into the world, HIV would be eliminated. We are the primary cause of HIV in the country and we could stop it.
Sadly the LGBT media is more focused on genuinely outdated ideas of ‘stigma’ and social injustice than on eliminating HIV.
Read the whole thing. He also addresses something I’ve made note of previously. That the gay left, in their zeal to “de-stigmatize” HIV infections swung all the way to “if you refuse to have sex with HIV-infected men, then you’re an ignorant bigot Trump-supporting racist homophobe.” Like you’re actually supposed to feel bad about protecting yourself from an incurable disease.
