HIV/AIDS Isn't A Shared Risk

Tuesday, September 1, 2009

Regarding the Aug. 29 Metro article "District Launches HIV-Test Campaign":

D.C. Mayor Adrian M. Fenty was quoted as saying, "Everybody is at risk" regarding HIV/AIDS.

Really? Everything I have learned about HIV/AIDS is that it can be avoided with some common sense. The message that we're all at risk contradicts the facts of how this disease is spread. HIV/AIDS education apparently has a long way to go.

The only thing "we're all at risk" for is continuously having our tax dollars spent on programs that ignore the truth and cater to people who live a dangerous lifestyle.
