yes, if I liked them. These days between barrier methods, PrEP and PEP the risk is minimal. And I don't want to have kids so there wouldn't be a problem when it came to that either.

As above; HIV/AIDS is no longer the death sentence it used to be, and the risks of catching it from someone who takes medication is next to nil. The stigma against HIV/AIDS is wrong and uses outdated information. You're more likely to catch HIV/AIDS from someone who has had unprotected sex but doesn't want to admit to themselves that they may have caught it, hence not getting tested and going without treatment, while maintaining the same lifestyle.

Why is that? You must know that it's not contagious in that way - you can't catch HIV from shaking somebody's hand.

Would take "misinformed and childish + NO HIV" over "informed and mature + HIV"

Thanks

That's very bold of you to say.

Have no idea what that person could have been doing before I shook their hand (for all I know they could have been treating a wound or smth, and got their blood on their hands).

All I know is, if I dont interact with people with HIV/AIDS, the chance of getting it from them is 0%, and I like the sound of those odds.

The HIV virus cannot live outside of the body, so unless you have an open wound in your hand and he has and open wound in his hand you won't get HIV

In the case of HIV/AIDS, there is nothing for me to gain from educating myself on the disease, so yes, I and many other people, chose to be willfully ignorant on this matter.

I'm sorry but the reality is that unless you have had HIV from birth or you were raped or smth (in which case it's not your fault), if people know you have HIV you should expect to be ostracized.

Okay, so I grant you it isn't completely impossible, but you'd both have to have open wounds on your hands, and even then you'd have only a very low chance. Is it really worth alienating someone even when you know that you don't have an open wound of any sort?

People need to educate themselves about AIDS before commenting, at the end of the day if they are honest with you and you protect yourself (as you should anyway) I don't understand the stigma
