Although I am in my late 40s now, I have always been amazed that although undetectable vl for 12 years i have been considered "unclean" for all 12 years by gay men when i disclose. But lately I ask what are they asking> Positive for what? Clean with WHAT STD? (I have no sex so it is easier for me to be sane i guess, but I also have healthcare that pays for regular STD tests), well that takes the wind out of their sails but maybe I will find a serious non addict nor in denial man one day that is fun too. But geez those gays not being responsible again is too much decade by decade.

Very interesting post! Hopefully scientists will find a way to get all of these diseases under control one day.

Avery's brand of HIV "advocacy" can make William F. Buckley sound downright generous. The fact is though that for some people who will suffer complications, HIV ain't the only game in town. Hepatitis is still fatal, but most gay men dont think twice about it. Syph can be nasty too, and I've heard some horror stories about what the plan is to treat the clap in the absence of antibiotics that make AZT monotherapy sound generous. Meanwhile, poz people have been maligned partly because our disease has been embraced as THE disease to fear. Consequently, both sides of the viral divide are worse for an AIDS centric sexual health policy. Maybe it would do poz and neg alike well to admit that "healthy" is more nuanced than the results of an HIV test.
