creyente saidPeople who are victims of a crime should not be made to feel bad about them. Private photos of him and his boyfriend were stolen and placed on line, and for that he is being penalized.
The odd thing is that the "scandal" is apparently coming from the gay community. The problem seems not to be that he had sex, but that he was barebacking. That's something only we care about, not straight people.
If he had been straight and having sex without a condom, nobody would have batted an eye. But look, there is a picture of a gay man having sex without a condom, and suddenly it's a scandal.
A scandal in the gay community, not in the community at large. I'd say the dustup over Dustin is not really the consequence of a crime, as he portrays it. It's not about him being gay, either. It's about the fight against AIDS and HIV, and the fact that SOME people, SOMETIMES, go completely overboard.
DLB had sex without a condom. That is NOT a scandal in itself. We made it one, because we have to shame everybody that doesn't use condoms.
