I'd already heard about "bug chasers" but watched John Walsh last night who's program was about these people.

A woman on the program just filmed a documentary called "The Gift" about these bug chasers and gift givers.

Also, there was a young gay man who intentionally sought to acquire the HIV virus and then regretted what he had done. Well boo f'in hoo.

And once upon a time I saw a statistic that showed that funding for AIDS research was well and above the funding for breast cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other serious diseases. Wish I could find that information again.

It just burns me that all we hear about is the plight of the poor folks who get AIDS and that we must be ever vigilant to find a cure for this and then come to find out that one of the high risk groups treats this as a badge of honor (I guess to get more sympathy from homophobes). In this day and age, only someone stranded on a tropical island for the last 20 years would not know how to prevent AIDS.

But because it afflicts mostly homosexuals, we are to treat it with kid gloves and respect to the core of our being.

That's just MY rant and I may be wrong.

Yep. You can read about it here: Acting Up.

Rolling Stone also wrote a similar article: The men who long to be HIV+. Some in the pro-homosexual crowd will try to deny this information. The only part that's really up for debate is the %25 figure, but Rolling Stone is sticking to the article as written.

I just posted some of that yesterday (I think). I'll see if I can find it. You may find this helpful:
