    I know craigslist has some bogus ads, but this one takes the cake. I'm not even sure about the person's frame of mind when they posted this. While there's truth in what he said I wonder if he's serious. what do you think?

    If it said what I think it said... "Come over and catch it." He only said what many of those ads say, but more to the point. Metaphorically, a lot of those ads say exactly that.

    I heard a sad story the other day from a college age young man who informed me of "bug parties" Apparently guys go to these parties to try and get hiv from unprotected sex. Many feel they will get it eventually so why worry and just get it over with and contract the virus. He said the person who is hiv poz is known as the gift giver. WTF??icon_sad.gif I asked if he ever attended one and he said no, because he was a top, but some of his friends have done it.

    I'm glad I'm not single anymore!! I still always wear a condom-always!! icon_idea.gif

    It is really upsetting, not just the fact that hiv is no picnic, but it's wreckless, idiotic, and immature thinking.

    It has a really negative impact on gay rights and decisions like Prop 8!!

    ... And yet, I'm expected, as a "fellow gay person" to dish out donations and contributions to help fight the spread of HIV / AIDS, yet these reckless morons engage in such thoughtless, twisted behavior.

    It's one of the many reasons why I think I've remained single for so long: You just can't know where someone has been or if they're gonna be honest and upfront about themselves.

    It is a subculture and a lot has been written on the demented nature of bug chasers.

    Having lived through the years when I buried almost every gay, male friend that I had, I too have trouble understanding this phenomenon. However, I do believe that it is not always as black and white as it may seem. Even though we have made a lot of progress over the last few years, the hate in American society is still evident. I think this is all the more difficult for gay men because we are now being brought up to expect things that are still outside our reach. Instead of barebaking not helping us achieve gay rights and fighting Prop 8, I believe that it is the very lack of rights and hateful things like Prop 8 that keep people with a feeling of being expendable; of not having value. Furthermore, I believe that as gay men who supposedly have our heads screwed on we need to be engaging these people in a way that we can support them to make better choices. When I have done this I usually get a pretty good reaction, but of course, I also get told that they already have a father. We need to be talking to them about things like self worth. I believe that we have a responsibility to our brothers and quite frankly, the judgement and condemnation without engagement is as destructive as some of the other ugly things we have to face.
