    Before I even clicked the link or looked at the tag line, I knew this was going to be a story out of Texas. Yet another Texas university.

    STFU. I've seen worse come out of so called liberal blue states.

    Anyways, this case is disgusting. He said he won't press charges but I would. Whoever did this is horribly disturbed. Who does this shit?

    ....and how does that stack up to the red states? icon_neutral.gif

    Exactly.


    I'm just saying for whatshisface to say that somehow red states produce the worst homophobes is a stretch.

    The cases I highlighted, IMHO, are just as if not more offensive than the HIV smear campaign incident.

    Who ever was handling his documentation should be looked at. Clearly a violation of HIPAA, they are so getting fired and if anything should get their license revoked.

    This. Isn't HIV status bound by doctor-patient confidentiality?

    Being a Houstonian, this make me sad. UHD already dont have a good reputation and education background, this only make it worse. The president need to take action even if Kris doesnt wanna press charge.

    UHD is a shitty school to begin with. As for the blue-states vs. red-states debate, It doesn't matter. Assholes are assholes.

    To those who are giving red-states a bad name, ABC undercover report gives Texas more points than NY:

    I take offense to 'oh this is happened in Texas.' Seriously? I've encountered more rude assholes toward gay men in other states, especially Maryland and Connecticut, than I have in Texas.

    As another poster stated... Assholes are everywhere, but I hate those generalizations that 'the south' as a whole is bigoted. Are there plenty of areas that aren't supportive? Sure. But I have lived and visited numerous cities that have shown me otherwise.

    It's very possible doctors weren't even involved. A lot of medical information is available electronically these days. Additionally, it's possible someone could have broken into either his dorm room/apartment or campus medical center to get these records.

    Even still, the fact they put another person's confidential medial records needs to be looked at. It's on par with identity theft.

    I'm offended that his HIV status would be reason to not vote for him.

    Amazing that the student only wants an apology though he could pursue legal action.

    I wonder whether that is a desire to be forgiving, or fear of further repercussions.

    While I do believe we live in an overly litigious society, I'm not sure this is something that he should step away from. However, i respect that this is an issue he needs to deal with in his own way.

    Well said. I agree he has to handle this his own way, though it's probably not what I'd do given the same circumstances. I'd consider a public apology and sensitivity training for the perpetrator, but more likely would go the legal action route. I'd definitely be looking into legal action against the medical staff that released his file; as Seric said, somebody should be fired immediately and have his/her license revoked.

    I've read all the posts in this thread and I don't see any reason even my post being made to upset this thread to a red vs blue state issue. That is not what mine was about. This is not the first thread about a university in Texas. It has been in the news.

    And I know that THE ENTIRE STATE is NOT bigoted (THANK YOU AUSTIN!!!!).

    He said Texas and Texas University. He didn't say anything about Red state vs. Blue state. That was your perception.

    Bitch please!!! Are you deaf, dumb, AND blind?

    We could all read between the lines. Unless do you know of an epidemic of gay HIV smear campaigns only happening in Texas?


    Stop backtracking now....

    Red or blue state, I think we can all agree that this is awful. It doesn't matter if you're in Texas or California, Austin or Houston...if something smells like an asshole, it's probably an asshole.

    It would be an interesting gambit to WIN if he manipulated the public by making them himself, not sure what his chances were beforehand, if he was an "also ran" it would be an interesting gambit.

    Just exactly what the fuck is your problem? You do nothing and I mean NOTHING but try to incite flame wars even in your own tired threads that you create and you have the childish audacity and I do mean childish to come for me? You aren't even close to being that clever as you might think you are. This was never a thread about red vs blue until YOU made it so. I don't do innuendo or cloaked messages. I always say what I mean and mean what I say. And I have never backtracked. Read YOUR 1st post to the origin of red vs blue. If you don't see it then you are one the one that's blind. Stay in your lane. I know I have more driving experience than you do.

    Oh sit down and shut up grandpa. Older doesn't equal wiser, as Art and Roadragerob constantly prove.

    You DID try to make this a red state/blue state north/south issue.

    Tell me, why did you feel the need to single out Texas in all of this?

    Grandpa? Doubt you would or will even make it to 40.. And it seems your memory fails you. Because there was yet another GLBT discrimination thread just last week posted by Metta about the student government voting to allow student to withdraws activities fees if there religious beliefs did not allow them to support a GLBT organization on campus. That was Texas A&M.

    Fortunately, The president vetoed that vote so as not to allow it to go further. That is why I mentioned Texas. Had nothing to do with any political issue. And just a reminder: No matter how many times you say something, it doesn't make it true. You want to make this red vs blue? You already did with your first post as I pointed out.

    Now I am done with your line of questioning. It no longer warrants any of my attention in this thread.

    HIV status is bound to anyone who is being intimate with someone and/or a doctor. (not everyone is honest though)
