Is it really cool?
« on: November 14, 2011, 04:42:37 PM »
Hi there:

I am new on this site. Have read many of your posts, and this is my first time posting. I am not HIV+ but have lost 2 best friends to the nasty virus. I am not here to offend anyone- so if I do, I am sorry in advance.

Like I said, I have lost two dear friends to his nasty virus, and since then have heard of other's saying it's cool to have HIV, that is the new IT thing now. I mean, I have seen what this virus has done to people I love, so why are they talking like this? I am hearing it more and more.

It is because there is  new stronger medicine then before? I am confused, and needed to see if other's are hearing things like this? } It might not be a death sentence, but it surely is a life sentence.

Again, thank in advance for your respond, as I know your time is valuable. Thanks for this site as well, only wished my friends would have know about this. :(

Wow are you serious? I am pretty surprised at your respond, as I was being 100% real.
I am not sure, why you are taking offends to this question. I am a not here to offend anyone-I have lost two dear friends to this virus.

You don't have to think everyone is her to make fun of you. I was in depression when I went through the loss. I am asking this, because I have heard of others say this. I am not sure, if they take this disease seriously anymore due to the advance in medicine.

My friend was only 19. Had sex with only one person- making fun of you, would have been making fun of her. Your post makes me sad! thanks for your reply though.

! thanks for your reply though.

You are most welcome ... and I'm not easily offended so no need to apologise to me . Since you have seen first hand what HIV can do to a person I think you already have answered your own question .

Well, yes you are right on that... I am participating in my daughters high school assembly. We are going to be discussing STD/pregnancy awareness. The attitude  toward hiv/Aids seems to have taken a different route, since all of this advance medicines have come into the picture.

My post was to see if other's are heard of statements like this. It was not to discuss what my personal experiences was. You might want to reread my post. If you  have nothing productive to add, then please don't bother replying to this post. Thanks.

If that is true then, to quote Devo, we're through being cool.

Its Growler right?

You really need to broaden your vocabulary. I think your need major counseling. Are you upset at me since I am HIV-. If it true, that I shouldn't post here, I am sure that someone will move this to the right thread.

You are not sick with HIV, you are just a sick person period. You hate other's who are HIV_ and you are taking your anger out on me. I have reported you.

I am not sure if you have a mom,sister or wife- but the word cunt is a very awful word to use. I will pray that all might lord help you with your anger. You are a sick person indeed but not from HIV.

The pain is yours not mine. I have the right to post here as well. HIV+ or negative. I have reported you and it wont  be long before you on a time out. Sounds like you really need it.

Growler, it is with regret that I must give you a time out. What you have written is just way too over the top - we don't sanction this type of abuse on these forums regardless of whether or not the person it is directed to has hiv or not.

I'm really disappointed. I thought you were better than that. I'm obviously mistaken. Noted.

on edit...

You're damn lucky YOU are not now permanently banned. Try this type of nasty shit here again and you will be, trust me.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

Thank you Ann- if I am not to post here, then I am sorry. Wow, never thought my thread would be treated this way since I am HIV negative. I have experienced much loss, and sadness due to this awful diseases. I was just wondering if other's have seen this type of attitude, due to the great advance in the medicines.

Thank you.

Tika, under our current posting rules you are permitted to post in the Off Topic forum, but that does not mean that you will be welcomed here by our positive members. Sometimes we just need somewhere to go where we do not have to constantly explain ourselves to people who do not and cannot have any idea what it's like to actually have hiv in your body and have to live with that hanging over your head on a daily basis.

I understand that you probably mean well, but I also understand the anger that Growlers's posts were immersed in.

It's a no-brainer that hiv is not "cool". I cannot fathom why you did not think this thing through before you posted.

I'm going to lock this thread because I can't see it going in any productive direction.

Tika, I suggest you refrain from posting anywhere but the "Someone I Care About" or "Am I Infected forums from here on out. Thank you for your cooperation.

Ann
