Quasimodo December 8, 2016 ugh disgusting stoic ryan December 8, 2016 why would you be judged if people stay away from people who are HIV+? It's no different from people steering clear from people who have the flu, they just don't want the risk of getting it. simple as that. meemster786 December 8, 2016 the stereotype that only gay men get HIV was reinforced by this video Lucie Římanová December 8, 2016 Dear Buzzfeed…what the hell is wrong with your content? If I refuse any sort of relationship with HIV+ person, guess what. Yes, that's right, it's my damn business. Disagree all you want. It's not like your petty crybaby video desperate for sudden acceptance of a fatal disease is going to change opinion of anybody on the matter. But if you're so prone to believe the pile of crap you're filling YouTube with these days, sure, go ahead and mingle with them. Let us know how's the seasonal flu couple years down the road. LittleWittleKitty December 8, 2016 To be honest, I feel for these people. But dating someone who is HIV positive is too risky and scary in my personal opinion. I wouldn't be able to relax and I'd have constant anxiety/ paranoia over it Melanin Faded December 8, 2016 I understand their complaints but let's be real. No one wants to risk their life dating/ having intercourse with someone who could possibly pass on a deadly disease that basically tears down their immune system. You can't fault them for that, and while it's something you can't change it doesn't mean you try to make people feel guilty for not wanting to. I hope those who are HIV positive can find a person who is more open minded to the risk but if not you shouldn't guilt trip people for not doing so. I hope you find love and happiness with someone. <3 Spoon December 8, 2016 Wtf Spoon December 8, 2016 Please breed amongst yourselves david fan December 8, 2016 SO typically I'm not the kind of person that likes to put my input on the internet but I feel like this is one of the issues that I really want to address as I see a lot of different comments and perspective.FOR ME PERSONALLY, i think the whole HIV stigma that makes people feel weary and uneasy is that IT IS PERMANENT. Sure, sleeping with someone who is HIV positive has a LOW chance of infection BUT in the grand scheme of things, IF you are infected, it is with you FOR LIFE which is why I feel a lot of people just have the preference of not wanting to sleep with HIV people. Compared to getting pregnant, chlamydia and other STIs, those are CURABLE and not permanent. Everyone likes feeling SAFE and not having repercussions. Contrary to HIV though, although it IS A SLIM CHANCE, once infected is always infected.For me though, call me selfish or closed minded, but we all have preferences and i just prefer to sleep with people that aren't HIV positive because I don't even want to have that SLIGHTEST risk.For those that have been infected, you have my support and love. I am sorry that you guys are labelled and have been infected with this incurable infection but know that other people have preferences. I know some people discriminate and call you sluts, filthy and other derogative terms but know that there are people like me that just don't want to put our health at risk. You guys are people too and I would treat any HIV person with the same respect I treat my friends with- we can hangout and play games but I just wouldn't want to sleep with you. Hopefully modern medicine advances and HIV becomes curable! Spread LOVE not WAR 🙂 <3 sillystorm28 December 8, 2016 Im somewhat disappointed with this video as I was hoping for there to be a woman so that I could show my mum, who is HIV+ and was infected by my step father (they were in a monogamous married relationship but he cheated and then never said anything, even after finding out he was positive). Mum has had it for 6 years, 4 of those years completely unaware until by chance she tested herself for STIs and tested positive for HIV. She does want to date, but she feels she cannot because of the stigma. I had hoped to show her this video but I feel it would only make her feel worse :( Ankush Kadaskar December 8, 2016 quite educational , it applies to every gender and their orientation Joe Kennedy December 8, 2016 I Don't want to be "open minded" if it's going to give me HIV. No thanks. Rod Liceaga December 8, 2016 To be honest it is totally their fault for getting HIV they are responsible for their actions. They shouldnt expect other people to be exposed to it just for their well feeling. What Bigots Alyssa Aguayo December 8, 2016 That dude looks and talks like Freddy HM FL December 8, 2016 Can we not assume only gay people have HIV? This is one time where I actually kind of wanted some straight people in the video.
