Pattinson has fans who want to share their blood with him. Concern over blood-borne infection is quite reasonable. AIDS is a symptom of HIV as Necrosis can be a symptom of brown recluse spider bite. 'I just don't want someone to have a brown recluse spider and give me necrosis' would be an equivalent statement. Any quibbling would be semantic. Beyond that, perhaps you could clarify precisely why you believe it is wrong to say that one can acquire AIDS from HIV infected blood.

Interesting article to say the least. What your whole point to me got a little twisted when you brought in the get basically stabbed to get aids. I wish you well on all your ventures in life and I think that I hope at least someday we can all get together someday and not to use the words fight for the cause to be treated the same. Just we are who we are and say how are you today, without any prejudices.

Although I don't condone the angry tone of the previous comment and the use of certain words in it (idiot, druggies, dumbass), I will leave it. Why? It's a sad reminder of the level of hostility out there. It also reveals a high level of misunderstanding. Pattinson said, "... I just don't want someone to have a needle and give me AIDS ..." HIV and AIDS are not the same! That's why my response was, "Your understanding of how someone develops AIDS, however, seems to be a bit lacking." I worded that carefully. I wrote "how someone develops AIDS" because it was clear to me from his quote that he fears that if he were to get stuck by a needle that he would develop AIDS. Even if he were theoretically exposed to HIV by a needle, he wouldn't necessarily develop AIDS. The previous comment states, "AIDS can also be passed through a needle ..." That is incorrect, just like Pattinson was incorrect. HIV is passed, not AIDS.
