Honey Boo Boo's Uncle Poodle Sent His Boyfriend To Prison For Giving Him HIV
charged with HIV transmission after learning that he himself was HIV-positive last year.
I was adamant about getting my HIV status checked on a regular basis. On March 16, 2012, I tested negative. Then, in May of 2012 my test results came back positive. I knew it had been my boyfriend who infected me. I later learned he had been HIV positive and was not taking medication and had not bothered to tell me about it. I was advised that I should press charges and, hesitantly, I did. It was the right thing to do. He is serving a 5-year sentence. I would have been cool with his HIV status if he had been honest. I don’t have an issue with the disease. I would have known how to protect myself.In the above-linked article Thompson goes on to denounce barebackers as "damn fools" but makes no revelation as to how he was infected.
RELATED: The decriminalization of HIV transmission has long been a goal of many HIV/AIDS activists. Last year the Global Commission on HIV & The Law issued a United Nations-sponsored report that called for exactly that. Also last summer Todd Heywood reported that HIV criminalization laws cause some men to never get tested at all.
