Avoiding HIV now ‘discriminatory’ and ‘frightening’

The “tolerance movement” has morphed into absurdity. Like the piano tie and the mullet (business in the front, party in the back), moral relativism is quickly becoming just another regrettable trend. Still, like treasure hunters, the trend-setters remain immovably (and illogically) committed to discovering – or simply inventing – and then subsequently proclaiming the next great cause. For those whose self-esteem is tied to their devotion to a cause, any amount of social progress, healing, and reconciliation can be a curse, exposing an internalized fear within the crusader’s soul of having a purposeless, ordinary life. So, the crusade must go on…….. and on, and on, and on, and on.

At times it appears, with each new day, the tolerance champions devolve further and further into a state of sheer madness while in search of a cause, flailing in their attempts of remaining relevant. While the seemingly nonsensical devotions and incongruous thinking patterns of the day’s social justice warriors may, at first thought, bring momentary amusement to the average person, the reality of the situation is quite tragic. It is tragic both for the forlorn, over-zealous campaigner himself and for the public at large.

Case in point: DaddyBear, a gay “sugardaddy” hook-up app and its creators are being hounded by some in the LGBTQIA-LMNOP-XYZ community for excluding HIV positive males from its “hook-up” pool. According to Queerty, “DaddyBear is a new hookup, er, dating app that connects ‘wealthy gay daddies’ with ‘healthy gay bears.’” According to one DaddyBear representative who commented on the Queerty article, “If you are worried about meeting gay men who are living with HIV, then you can feel relieved with our App because we are trying our best to make sure that all users you meet will be healthy and without HIV.” Oh, the intolerance!

DaddyBear’s CEO, “Justin,” explained, “No one would like to date people living with HIV unless he is living with it. Most gay sugar daddies are not living with HIV, so they don’t want to bring home any unwanted souvenirs. However, we support that gay men living with HIV have the right to date with other gays with HIV. But many rich and successful gay sugar daddies do not want to date with gay men living with HIV, which is the reason why we launched this app to meet their needs.” According to DaddyBear, “We should face a fact that gay men are much more likely to get HIV through unprotected sex than average straight guy.” In addition, DaddyBear described other “hook-up” apps which, quite often, don’t share a person’s HIV status as being “very dangerous.”

Thus, the “triggering” began… Woe to thee!

In an article at LGBTQ Nation entitled, “WTF? This sugardaddy hookup app says it’s for men ‘not living with HIV’” author Mark S. King laments the app’s “stated position on the HIV status of those daddies and bears” as being “frightening,” and went on to describe the attitude of DaddyBear’s CEO as akin to having “recently emerged from a cryogenic freeze from 1986.” Matthew Rodriguez, in an article at INTO, insinuated that DaddyBear’s stance on HIV was ironic and misinformed. Both authors regressed into desperate justifications for their own apparent lackadaisical attitudes towards HIV, presenting the claim that “undetectable” equals “noninfectious,” aka “non-transmittable.”  

Furthermore, the apps’ apparent serophobic attitudes have been condemned among DaddyBear’s iTunes reviews, with one user giving the app a dismal 1 star rating for being a “discriminatory app.” (review shown below)

Meanwhile, back in the real world, the “daddies” of DaddyBear have valid reasons to be cautious. The April 25, 2017, report by the CDC entitled, “HIV Among Gay and Bisexual Men” offers startling statistics on the continued HIV epidemic among America’s homosexual and bisexual male population. As summed up by Life Site News below:

— Gay and bisexual men aged 13 to 24 accounted for an estimated 92 percent of new HIV diagnoses among all men in their age group and 27 percent of new diagnoses among all gay and bisexual men;

— Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men made up an estimated 2 percent of the population, but 55 percent of people living with HIV in the United States in 2013;

— From 2005 to 2014, HIV diagnoses decreased in the United States by 19 percent overall but increased 6 percent among all gay and bisexual men;

— 1 in 6 gay and bisexual men will be diagnosed with HIV in their lifetime, including 1 in 2 black gay and bisexual men, 1 in 4 Hispanic gay and bisexual men, and 1 in 11 white gay and bisexual men;

— Nearly 1 in 7 gay and bisexual men living with HIV are unaware they have it;

— Anal sex is the riskiest type of sex for getting or transmitting HIV. Receptive anal sex is 13 times as risky for acquiring HIV as insertive anal sex.

 The tolerance and moral relativism surrounding a life-threatening, sexually transmitted disease so forcefully pushed by some in the LGBTQIA-infinitum community pales in comparison to their rabid, opportunistic, carnivorous determination to label all those who wish to remain disease-free as “frightening” and “discriminatory.” Trend-setters set trends. They care not of the consequences that follow.

 So, yet again, the responsibility for spreading truth – even in such basic areas as public health – fall to all of us who truly care about humanity, who don’t abuse our own minds with moral relativism, and who are brave enough to stand up and short, “Stop this nonsense!” After all, “In times of universal deceit- telling the truth is a revolutionary act” (unknown author).
