KillFoile and Dachshund, it's surprising to me, that so many poz folks strive to take away the barrier of self-isolation and discrimination, try hard in practice and in real-life to integrate themselves with negatives in a discriminatory and prejudiced society and then suddenly want to set themselves apart in advocacy. Sounds quite contradictory to me.

Dachshund, go wear a T-shirt and say you are positive openly in this society and go out on the streets to educate everyone as an AIDS activist volunteer how bad your experience was, instead of shitting on a well-wisher locked away into your closet room typing away on a computer about your rage filled upset HIV positive world. I would think, here's Sunny, trying to advocate causes against prejudiced words and saying that he indeed doesn't know what it's like to be positive by saying so here:

I absolutely agree that, as leatherman said, negatives need need to be involved in advocacy against HIV also.

And so, dachshund, the above words of Mr.Sunny clearly showed he wasn't talking for pozzies but he was indeed noble hearted, if you'd stop being an idiot(read others' posts carefully!) and a douche to nice people.

And yeah, the original poster: You dont need to have HIV to open your eyes. That's not true understanding. And were it not for the HIV scare you'd still be prejudiced about everything...

For those who don't know, Coolstone is HIV negative. His opinions should be weighted accordingly.

   When I really needed them, not one negative friend could empathize with how I felt.  Only my brothers and sisters here could.

That says a lot in my opinion.


So true.

I'll tell you what. Let's go out on the streets together. You can wear your "I'm negative for pozzies T" and I'll wear my "I'm with stupid" T shirt. It's not surprising that the only two people that didn't understand my posts were negative. Don't confuse rage with not suffering fools gladly.

Absolutely. Coolstone, your attitude is exactly why we rarely allow hiv negative people to have free reign in the forums meant for hiv positive people. You just don't "get it" and while that's not your fault, you never will and therefore you would be wise to tread very carefully. For example, I really don't want to see you posting in Just Tested again.

There are reasons why we have forums that are supposed to be safe for hiv positive people to post in and the three negative members who have posted in this thread are perfect illustrations of these reasons. You don't get it and you never will, unless you become hiv positive yourself.

I think it's time to lock this thread.
