It's nice to know that someone knowingly dating someone infected with HIV was responsible enough to be regularly selling plasma and seemingly dependent on its income.

/What could possibly go wrong?

gadian: If she bothered to keep up with her meds her viral load could've stayed undetectable and the transmission that much more difficult.  But no.  You have here a complacent asshat who not only won't take her damn meds, but who also manages to directly expose her partner to her blood.  Nice.

A little common sense a day keeps the HIV at bay.


Many can't afford it, especially in states like Texas. In Southern states, half of all people who know their status aren't taking their meds, mostly for financial reasons. Without an official diagnosis of AIDS, she couldn't get the Ryan White assurance for HIV drugs, especially since Texas' Medicaid income and assets threshold is so frighteningly low. This is one of the reasons the state's refusal to take the Medicaid expansion is so evil - people aren't getting the treatment they need and are spreading their diseases to others, all for literally no reason other than hatred for the n-bong in the White House. It's sickening, and it's disgusting.

Maybe the person in this case could afford it and did qualify and was just irresponsible - she wasn't exactly making good choices - but there are many with her status who can't afford life-saving care that also protects others.

So the circumstances confirm exactly what I immediately assumed.

Both women in the story are stupid beyond redemption.

It didn't occur to them that bleeding on sex toys and sharing them would transmit a blood-borne virus? Come on. Who's that dumb.

The couple said they routinely had unprotected sexual contact and shared sex toys between them. At times, the contact was "rough to the point of inducing bleeding in either woman,"

I don't know...sounds kinda hot to me.
