please do not accuse me of writing something that I did not write, for I did not write anything that implies that if you get AIDS by another method other than a blood transfusion that the condition would be shamefull. It is the community that could consider someone that has HIV to be shamefull, not me, and that is what I wrote. I wrote ," I am not saying that any of these situations are shamefull." Please do not misquote me or write that I am implying something that I am not.
Society is quick to jump to the conclusion that if someone has a sexually transmitted disease, that they commited adultery. I wrote that sociey is guilty of rushing to that conclusion for one could have gotten the disease from the other spouse that was unfaithfull or could have gotten the disease though non-sexuall means.
