Wait… Now We're Talking About Decriminalizing Intentional HIV Transmission?
[Hot Air] This is another item that dropped during CNN’s disastrous LGBTQ town hall on Thursday night, but I didn’t notice it until yesterday evening. There were plenty of painful moments, including when Joe Biden started rambling on about "round-the-clock sex at gay bathhouses in San Francisco." But in the midst of all that, CNN’s Anderson Cooper got some of the candidates to weigh in on an actual policy issue that is somehow being considered by Democrats.
Should the intentional withholding of a persons HIV positive status from a prospective sexual partner be decriminalized? Shockingly, several of the candidates agreed with that idea. This, as Brad Palumbo at the Washington Examiner explains, isn’t just bad policy. It’s insanity.
Should it be a crime to knowingly expose someone to HIV without disclosing it?
Most sane people would say yes. But a widely panned Vox article published this week said that state laws making it a crime to not disclose your HIV status "have only increased stigma and abuse." And apparently, many 2020 Democrats agree with this ludicrous, insane point of view.
