xrichx saidNot sure what OP is trying to say here.He's stating that your HIV status is protected since it's related to U.S. medical record privacy laws.OP, I don't think you're required to state your status on rj, it's voluntary.
coolarmydude saidIndicating your HIV status is voluntary on this website.
YoungCollegeTry saidOP, I agree with you in theory, especially the part about the GLBTQIAXYZ population needing to take some personal responsibility when it comes to having sex, and choosing their potential sex partners more carefully. In practice, however:
a.) Until straight dating sites stop asking for STI information, your point is basically moot, and
b.) Taking personal responsibility for one's actions is, sadly enough, not a popular concept these days - especially among Millennials and Baby Boomers, who spread the most STIs simply because of their age bracket (young stupid kids and grandma/grandpa wanting to "spice things up" before they get much older) and gigantic population size. Just because I take caution before having sex with a new guy doesn't mean that I'm expecting everyone else to do the same in some effort to give myself undeserved moral superiority points like a common Republican or Bible-thumper.
