2. It isn't 1985 nor even 1995. Aids is less of a problem to get nowadays than say Diabetes.

 

The biggest problem with AIDS is the stigma which honestly is not helped by such special treatment. When I believe Lancet pointed out that you would much rather have AIDS than a more debilitating and deadly disease such as Diabities 2 activities went nuts and attacked them. Problem was all the complaining in the world didn't make them less right.

We should celebrate the downgrading of AIDS to just another condition. Unfortunately to many people have both thier livelihoods and egos wrapped up in the battles of the past to realise it is now ancient history.

Speaking of ancient history blaming racism for unequal infection rates in various populations is certainly that. I don't think we forward a progressive agenda by infantilizing an entire culture.
