There's no way this isn't a dupe?

It's not deadly.

Dies a year later.

From a purely personal perspective, nothing's really deadly til it kills you. So I can sort of see his logic.

This video reminded me of when in middle school our grade had a small assembly with a panel of people who had HIV/AIDS to presumably teach us some accurate information about the condition since most just knew the hysterical accounts from the news or our homophobic family members. During the Q&A, a girl raises her hand and asks one of the speakers how long he has had AIDS. She was quickly met with: I DON'T HAVE AIDS I HAVE H-I-V

The Q&A only lasted for another question or so and was wrapped up. The sentiment in the room was that while the this 11 or 12 year old was wrong in her question factually she was just trying to digest and make sense of all new information and there was no need to chastise her. Nobody understood what the person's deal was.

Having spent some time as an adult in San Francisco and having met people who attended to dozens of their friends and loved ones dying ruthlessly in the hospital because of the disease only then did I realize the stakes for the speaker at the assembly. The distinction between HIV and AIDS was existentially critical and probably psychologically necessary to wake up daily and put one foot in front of the other.

Anyway, Stephen Stucker taking a nonchalant and sassy attitude in this video about having AIDS as extreme as it seems was probably an important push back on fear gripping the country, though it was not immediately well received.

Remember when the Foo Fighters said HIV didn't cause AIDS?

Sorry, I should've said denied the link between HIV and AIDS.
