  • uhhh yes, why not? I currently have two friends with HIV. They are doing really well. They get treated like everyone else. I have never known anyone to treat them differently.

  • Of course. Having HIV/AIDS doesn't make someone LESS of a Person.

  • Why not? They arent contagious unless you are exposed to their blood or have sex with them. Of course I think people in the medical field or those who may have to handle injuries need to be informed, but beyond that whats the problem?

  • yes, of course. you aren't going to catch someone else's HIV just by watching them walk down the street.

  • Really, this question in this day and age? Do you not know what causes AIDS/HIV??

    It is a blood/sexual fluid disease that you cannot get by kissing or casual contact. You have to have had unprotected sex with an infected person OR have contact with their blood through an open sore of your own.

  • Of course they should! To treat them any differently would be inhumane, demoralizing & discriminatory!

  • Yes, but that doesn't mean keeping it a secret from those around you.
