Wish there was a WTF forum.....




An Irish drag queen used her local Pride celebrations last week as an opportunity to make a powerful and innovative statement about HIV stigma within the queer community.


source


what a disgusting and dangrous thing to do.

This "thing" should be arrested for endangering the public.

I mean what dick head thinks coating themselves in a infectious disease is a safe and responsible thing to do?

Can i wear a ebola jacket with my anthrax trousers? Maybe a rabies hat?

Defiantly worthy of a WTF.....


Electra hopes that her highly visible tiara move will contribute to a larger conversation surrounding the realities of living with HIV today.


Yeah right....good luck with that Electra....although somehow i just cannot see this helping the cause....

It was coated on her tiara only and was dry. 0 percent chance of infection unless soneone took the tiara and scratched it on their body until they were bleeding or rubbed it all over mucous membranes.

This was to make a point nand there was no harm.

Prove harm.

Playing with infectious blood in public is no laughing matter.

Call me old fashioned but my lab training drilled into me says you handle all blood with upmost care.

Only if you're also buying all the drinks.

Did anyone AID-s her whilst the queen walked ?

Maybe in 28 days, idiots will be walking around covered in a zombie contagion.

apparently it was applied to the tiara and then dried. it was dry on the tiara and no one came into contact with it with open skin or a mucous membrane. With all of your 'training' you would know how this works for this virus.

Or are we going back to the 80s where kids with HIV fro blood transfusions were kicked out of schools? That would be more than a 20 year regression.

Except you dont handle infectious diseases in such a trivial manner.

It does not matter if there was 0 chance of infection.


You dont handle viruses in that matter, period.


Even non infected blood you handle with care.

Of course.


The crown was coated in the blood of a consenting HIV+ donor, taken by a qualified doctor, then applied to the crown to dry, letting the virus die with it.

I make no point on what this person did was right/wrong. With that said, a simple lean at the wrong time and that tiara could have punctured someones skin. I don't want anyone with purposely placed blood on them, near me. It's gross and still leaves a chance of touching.

The only thing one should do with bodily fluids that had infectious diseases in them is sterlize them by autoclave.


You dont use them in some stupid stunt.

Well, actually, you can. The virus only lives for so long on a surface and you need skin that is cut or open somehow or a mucous membrane to accept even a live virus.

The virus was dead by the time she put it on. A doctor oversaw this.

Calling a person a 'thing' is an insulting and unnecessary thing to do.


It would seem her entire logic about doing this was to make a point about how misunderstood peoples ideas about how HIV is transmitted are.

Which OP demonstrates ably by flying off the handle and not understanding that the tiara had zero transmission risk.


I would think this thread demonstrates exactly why the drag queen made this statement.

OK, but I can still deny the will to touch it. I have that. I can just say NO. I don't want to.

Doctors dont have magic wands to make things non infectious.


Only way to be sure is if they followed proper sterilisation procedures.
Ie autoclaved it.

You don't have to touch it. But you must realize it is not a health risk.

You need more lab training.

You are going to autoclave a tiara with dead virus on it?
