  • No, I don't. Never have. Only because I know that HIV can be contact through no fault of thier own in a lot of cases. I work in the medical field and people of all ages can contract HIV and it doesn't have to come from sexual acts.

  • I actually hired someone back in the 90's with AIDS and he contracted it through drug use and his wife and child in turn contracted it. All the paranoia was overhyped by homophobes, not even educating themselves enough to know they can be born with it, kind of like the OP.

  • I only am careful around all people, not just those with aids. DH works at a hospital, so we are very very careful.

  • This question should be deleted. It's too judgmental and a very touchy subject for those with HIV or AIDS.

  • Nope. why should you? You don't know their story, or their situation and you can't get it from them by looking at them or being their friend. Even if they did get it from having sex...who are you to judge??? Condoms break, they might not have known about the other person, and I know for a fact not everyone uses a condom 100% of the time so those of you that don't...it could be you...you just got lucky.
