It’s not a virus, it’s a culture.
Can you imagine anything more homophobic than making it a felony to engage in the homosexual national sport – giving other homos HIV?
I’m happy to see this law is being reduced – for tolerance – but it really should not be illegal at all.
This is an outlawing of homosexual identity. No different than laws against anal penetration.
California Governor Jerry Brown has signed a bill that reduces the crime of knowingly exposing a sexual partner to HIV without informing them from a felony to a misdemeanor.
Friday’s Senate Bill 239 also applies to those who donate blood without disclosing their HIV status to the blood bank.
It was authored by Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) and Assemblyman Todd Gloria (D-San Diego).
Great guy, Scott Wiener.
God’s chosen people, in fact.
You can trust him.
“Today, California took a major step toward treating HIV as a public health issue, instead of treating people living with HIV as criminals,” Wiener said in a statement.
“HIV should be treated like all other serious infectious diseases, and that’s what SB 239 does,” he added.

Knowingly transmitting HIV to another person can still be classified as a felony in cases where intent to do so can be proven. Prior to passing the bill, under California law, HIV was the only communicable disease for which deliberate exposure was deemed a felony offense, which carries a penalty of between three and eight years in federal prison.
Wiener and other advocates for amending the law argued that such severe punishment dissuaded people from getting their HIV status checked, precisely to protect themselves from felony prosecution.
“We are going to end new HIV infections, and we will do so not by threatening people with state prison time, but rather by getting people to test and providing them access to care,” Wiener said, as cited by the LA Times.
We cannot have people consciously not infecting other people with HIV.
That would completely undermine what it means to be a homosexual.
As I have always said: all homosexuals SHOULD have AIDS.
