It seems like there is No penalty for criminal behavior anymore. A slap on the wrist and that's it. No lesson learned for infecting men women or children with a deadly disease. That's crazy.

California has lost any sense of right and wrong. The state is a trainwreck morally and legally. It is a place where criminals are afforded protection over law abiding citizens.


That could be a positive thing for the rest of the country. All the riff-raff, leeches, and criminals will be attracted to their version of what America should be.

The grievous sores are one giant indicator.

I think if people are dumb enough to stick it all over the place, they deserve to get aids. Now the TV ads are things like " if you're from the baby boomers era you have a high chance of having shingles." Wonder how that happened? Could it be that society has become a FCK clustering orgy fest and now any disease is treated as just something that happens to people, no big deal right?

Where in the world did this diatribe about shingles come from? Shingles has nothing to do with unprotected sex and everything to do with chicken pox. Just because it's the herpes virus family does not make it an STD. My daughter developed shingles at 14 after a bout of chicken pox. She's never had another outbreak since, thank goodness.

I'm dismayed at the lessening of punishment for exposing someone to HIV. Yes, there are lots of STD's you can get from unprotected sex, but few of them are completely life altering and/or fatal. HIV and Hep B and C are three that should be treated as deadly. Expensive life-long treatments that may still end in death, and in the case of Hep B/C, destruction of the liver leading to cancer or a need for a transplant to stay alive.

Glad they moved it away from Anthrax and Ebola bio-weapon level.

If insurance cover the cost of the drugs, I suppose it's ok.

Like if someone gives you a little bit of brain damage with a tire iron?

You can also avoid HIV.




Reading through this thread I thought you were just being obtuse but your comment above gives you a pass, I guess, since you obviously have no clue whatsoever what this thread is about.

On the contrary. It seems that I don't have the tunnel vision which most are afflicted with.

You know that condoms work, right?

No.
But they are very useful in avoiding HIV. And other things.

Do they always work phage ?

There was a CFL football player here that had aides and management got into serious problems over not disclosing it . Blood gets spilled at times on a football field , not to mention the countless hookers he infected. Now those hookers are engaging in sexual acts with married men , and their wives could pay the price .

Sorry Phage , condoms aren't the answer ... routine testing and disclosure are !

I agree. Not the answer, but helpful in avoiding infections.
Is "here" California? Are you saying the old law did nothing to encourage disclosure?

Millions of accidental children are an indicator that condoms don't always work. Aids is no exception.

Good to see that you digging yourself a nice and deep hole in this thread hasn't affected your self confidence...

And yeah, I know about condoms, who would have thunk it. I also know that sex happens without condoms. Sometimes sex isn't planned, sometimes it is rape, even. Facts of life, surprise. Are you suggesting that having sex without a condom makes a person fair game for a psychopath who KNOWINGLY infects them with HIV?

I am glad I do not live in the cynical mental universe you inhabit.

No.
Are you suggesting that contact with a person infected with HIV inevitably leads to infection?

Are you suggesting that a psychopaths gives a # about any laws?
