So I was reading a over the discussion about whether someone would avoid HIV+ guys like the plague or not and I noticed something interesting. A fair number of guys were saying that they would be friends with someone that was HIV+ but that they could never be in a relationship with one. While I can understand that train of thought, the thing that I find interesting is that there seems to be an underlying assumption that you all know the HIV status of all your friends. Maybe I was reading too much into this but to have someone say they would be willing to be friends with a guy that was HIV+ makes it sound like they aren't already friends with someone that has HIV. I'm just curious why there is this assumption out there that a person with HIV is someone you don't know... just an odd way of seeing the world.
