HIV is one of the least contagious conditions known to man, yet some people choose to believe it spreads like the common cold, if I was in a relationship, I wouldn't bare-back, but I m single, if I catch anything it will require a visit to a clinic and some medication, I can live with that.
With all due respect, what a load of tosh. You can live with that? Someone telling you that you have HIV? Yeah, right. Something which may be treatable with medication - not everyone responds to the medication, it has horrendous side effects, the virus can mutate and medication become useless, then there are all the illnesses you get from the weakened immune system, the regular blood tests to find out what your viral load is and how low your CD4 count may be, then there is future dating and relationships, and having to declare HIV positive when entering certain countries, or going for medical procedures, or insurance, or mortgages, seriously - you haven't the first idea of how serious an illness HIV is.
Only an idiot barebacks a WG, or thesedays, anyone without going for a checkup with them first. Seriously - go read some of the HIV forums of people who are HIV+ then you may realize just how ignorant your comment was.
Apologies if this is coming across as a direct attack on you - its not meant that way, it just winds me up so much when people think HIV is nothing trivial and can be treated easily with tablets.
