I agree that they should celebrate the fact that they’ve got HIV. I think this is a great illustration of just how wonderful our tolerant and inclusive society is...

What do you think?

Nobody will convince me otherwise that the devil is not propagating libertinism through mainstream media and entertainment. With all the bug-eating propaganda and mental gonadectomy of men through pornography, it is only a matter of time before the news is replaced with gay sex (not that there is anything wrong with that, before the mods get on my case).

"Celebrate"?

They should not feel inferior or humiliated by it, but I am not quite sure how that could be the or a source of your self-esteem. Surely you don't have to appeal to your deficient immune system to feel valued or respected. Unless that's the only thing you have going on in your life.

There is a great deal of stigma surrounding HIV and it can be incredibly traumatic for someone to learn that they have it.

I don't particularly blame these people for wanting to find ways to break through that trauma, particularly the trauma they experience on the day of their diagnosis. Calling it a celebration or making a festival out of it almost is perhaps a very odd way to go about it but if it works for them then so be it.

Stephen Fry who spends half his time telling people it’s fine to be gay and the other half trying to kill himself

It's called Audism or something. There's like a bunch of deaf people movement that think they are superior to normal people because they are deaf.

It's like vampires, where you're willing to serve to be blessed with the gift. Except all that happens is you get to write "I have AIDS" on your FB profile.

Don't really know why you would be proud of getting a preventable disease. In most cases HIV is contracted because you were too dumb to use a condom.
Maybe you can be proud of how you circumnavigate the disease and stop it affecting your life and achievements but being proud of a preventable disease makes no sense.

Yep, and it's moronic.

By all means, don't be ashamed of ones circumstances. But this is a disease, and its a misfortune. Pride implies that one would do it all again even if they knew the outcome - and if so - that to me is absurd.
