Why Some Guy Named Wintersong Doesn’t Think You Should Be Trying So Hard to Prevent HIV (and why we agree with him)

Worrying about HIV makes us less safe. Because of HIV’s “frailty,” safety protocols that reduce or prevent the spread of Hep C are completely effective against HIV, but the reverse is not true at all. If we plan for the resilience of Hepatitis C we will better protect ourselves and those we share space with not only from Hep C but also from HIV and other blood born illnesses.

This is a really good point. HIV is a real problem, but it’s not the only problem and focusing solely on HIV prevention ignores the reality of other pernicious sexual health issues like Hepatitis. Be safe y’all.
