I don't believe in HIV criminalization, but I do admit to being angry about the recent case of a gay DJ in North Carolina. He was arrested for allegedly not disclosing his HIV-positive status to three men before having unprotected sex with them. He was charged with breaking his parole after having unprotected sex again. The article in Q Notes Online doesn't report that he infected anyone, but it does appear that he willingly put people at risk without their consent. I still don't think treating this guy as a criminal is the answer to his behavior, but cases like these reinforce the myth that HIV-positive people cannot be trusted. You can read more about it in my blog post—"The HIV Criminalization Debate."
