Uhh… HIV. I hate it. “The whole stigma if HIV, is the stigma of sexuality…” A true statement. I’m so bored by the topic of sex because most people are completely obsessed with discussing it. The highest rate of new infections are people between the ages of 13 and 24. Can you believe that? 13!!! Who the hell is having sex at that age? I was just trying to avoid getting thrown into a locker.
Perhaps the reason for this is the rabid hyper-sexualization young people are exposed to in today’s society. It used to be that you had to be talented to be famous, but now all you need to do is release a sex tape. Mine will be released later next week. The pressure to look and behave in a certain way have led young people to find acceptance through sex.
I’m sure there are other factors but the only reason I am writing this post is to share this video about young people living with HIV. Watch it. Or don’t. Whatever.
