Wow dude, it's a DATE! Or maybe all POZ people should wear tattoos? Pink triangles with a toxic symbol? That way we go to the gas chamber first!
Really? Willfully exploiting his ignorance of your condition? People go on dates to sound them out on many levels. For some POZ isn't an issue, like the OP's friend. You wouldn't waste your time if you knew beforehand. That says a lot about you: a POZ person shouldn't even have the right to privacy, apparently. Your need to know comes first. They aren't even people to you, they are immediately discarded.
QUOTE AUTHOR GOES HERELeaving aside the morbid joke about pink traingle ect., Timm does have a good point about POZ guys right to privacy. That right to privacy ends abruptly a soon as the POZ guy becomes involved in sexual activities. Some people are ignorant sure but they have the right to make that choice. Oh and Timm, my mother was born in one of those camps at the end of WWII so don't think making reference to POZ guys privacy is akin to how the Nazi's treated people who opposed them it's insulting even for you.
Look, we are all Gay here. We would have all worn Pink Triangles in Auschwitz. Being a homosexual in Germany in 1941 could send you to the gas chamber.........that is the ultimate affront to the right to privacy. They were exposed, tattooed, no rights what so ever. It was a GRAPHIC form of public humiliation. No doubt some homosexuals turned in other homosexuals under torture or threats. If some homosexuals were "infected" with something I'm sure other closet homos would turn them in more readily.
I've been demeaned on this site for being openly POZ. I've been dismissed on a human level. Inter-gay stigma is rampant. I'd be thrown under the bus (or the train to Auschwitz) by many on this site. For that reason I don't expect or demand that every POZ person be open about it. Some gay people don't want to out of the closet. The POZ closet is the similar...........it's only on a need to know basis. That is the right to privacy we all have.
And going on a DATE still isn't meeting that threshold. A date is when you decide what someone is like, if you even like them. If I don't like them why would I expose myself to someone who could vilify me? If I met someone like the OP's friend who is critical of people with HIV, and doesn't know I'm POZ, I'm sure as hell not going to tell him I am!
