Don't Ya Just Love Comment Sections
« on: February 18, 2011, 02:08:10 AM »
I was just reading a post/article by HIV positive porn performer, Mason Wyler.  He explains why he decided to do bareback movies with other HIVers.  I wasn't surprised by all the hate and misinformation in the comment section.  Comment sections just seem to attract those kinds of people.  It did make me wonder whether we (gay HIVers) face more stigma and hate from people who are gay.  We hear people say that, but I never knew whether it was true.  There is no shortage of posters saying we deserve what we got.  I like post number 45 from Tom.  He obviously has more compassion and a brain.

Most people who comment on those type of things do so with such vehemence and malice because it's the Internet - no one knows them so they can blast something without fear of personal ridicule.
Everyone has an opinion when nobody knows who they are but they usually have no idea what they're talking about.

Don't read ignorant opinions on the net - they're not real people  :)
