WHO CAN GET HIV/AIDS

I just heard a conservative talkshow host (that’s redundant, I know…) who is misinformed about AIDS and Straights, and felt I needed to say something from an informed position.

The AIDS virus doesn’t care what your orientation is, any more than the cold virus does. No matter who you are or how you identify, you can get HIV by having unprotected sex with someone who has HIV, no matter who they are or how they identify. No matter who you are, you can get HIV by sharing needles with someone who has HIV, no matter who they are or how they got it, or how they identify. And no matter who you are, you can get HIV by being intimately exposed to about a dozen other internal bodily fluids (in addition to semen, blood, vaginal secretions) of someone who has HIV, no matter who they are or how they got it, or how they identify.

But not saliva.

In fact the fastest-growing HIV-positive population is Straight women.

‘Nuff said.
