Why do only gay dating sites ask for our status?

This still surprise me, how lots of people do not know about DateFindersk (search on google), despite the fact that many people met his fiance on DateFindersk with this dating site. Thanks to my friend who told me about DateFindersk, I have met my fiance.
But a good site to find someone?
A friend of a friend recently found out he has AIDS. Hie still hasn’t told his girlfriend that he has AIDS. That is just fucked up. Anyway my point is YES I think ALL dating sites should ask what your HIV status is. Also what annoys me are gay dating sites that ask if you are a top, bottom or versatile. Not all gay people like anal sex.
Knowing someone’s status isn’t the whole story. An HIV+ person who is on treatment will have an undetectable level of the virus and therefore can not spread the disease. Asking only for HIV status perpetuates the stigma of HIV and is a big reason why people simply don’t get tested. Here’s the T: Guys want to have bareback sex, they just want it with people they believe are negative. Maybe you should consider how YOU personally contribute to the stigmatzation of those living with HIV.
FETISH for getting AIDS???? WTF that is realllllllyyyyy fucked up. I felt bad because I had a male foot fetish but that is just SICK
‘YOU WILL GET PREGNANT AND DIE !!’ Hahaha isn’t that from Mean Girls ? :}
Hi! Thanks for this useful video. By the way, I hear a lot of people keep on talking about popular dating site called DateFindersk (do a google search), but I’m not sure if it is good. Have you tried DateFindersk? I’ve heard several great things about this dating site and my cooworker met his soulmate on DateFindersk, but he refuses to tell me: (
It I do try to be open minded and respectful towards anyone positive as well. I do have positive friends. I have received criticism on online dating sites from guys for disclosing my status upfront because it does make guys feel rejected or less important, which is wrong.
I am HIV – and gay, but I also don’t go around looking to hook up for sex. I don’t disclose my status on my profile and I think it is something to discuss when the time is right. If they say they’re neg. but don’t know, get tested together. I have 2 oraquick tests here at home if we want to do that. Only that + safe sex with someone you KNOW are the safest bet. A lot of guys don’t bother to get tested and really know. Promiscuity in this community is dangerous PERIOD.
I’m like wiping my screen to make sure it’s not it ahaha
Maybe it’s your movie editor…
Your screenshots make my eyes feel weird D8
Some parts are blurry, y’know?
Incase you didn’t know – if you’re using a mac it’s command+shift+4 which turns your cursor to a screen capture thing which you then select what you wanna screenshoot.
If you’re on Windows… irrunnow – google it 😛
That aside – great debate/discussion topic.
It pokes at the whole “equality” illusional people chase after.
“We’re all equal, it’s just that some people are more equal than others.”
Aw well thanks. I may have grown out of the awkward phase mentally but I have some emotional catching up to do. 🙂
i find it hard to believe that someone as attractive as you ever thought of himself as ugly. you are beautiful!
XD haha when You laugh x3
I was scared at first, insisted on protected sex, etc. His major point was that he didn’t want to infect me, and he was certain we were safe, even with unprotected sex. I verified this with a 2008 medical association paper. We don’t let the subject get in the way now – but we take joint ownership for not introducing external risk, + treatment & regular tests being followed seriously. Bonding I think is stronger, “mature”?.
(contd’), ‘bug chasers’.Go figure!
NO,absolutely not.I’m HIV + & I get to choose who to tell & when to tell,I don’t need a tick box on a dating site questionnaire to pass that information on for me.The virus is just 1 element of who I am & I take full responsibility for it. I’d far rather inform a date face-to-face & before indulging in (safe) sex with that person.Not everyone I encounter needs to know my status however.Oh & those who go looking for HIV + men with the intention of contracting the virus are,apparently,known as
It would be interesting to hear you and your partner discuss the dynamics of your relationship based on his status. Just a thought! 🙂
Well, then. Get to it, mister. 😉 haha
What a lovely comment. Thank you for all your support!
I wish I would make videos more often, too. 🙂
I really love you, and I wish you would make videos more often. :p 🙂
YES 1 out of 10!…Allegedly it’s more like 3…allegedly
You definitely have the right to ask someones HIV Status. But Sero-sorting is horribly unreliable, because people lie, and people don’t know their status. You’re only as “good” as your last test date. The best advice is, just treat/assume EVERYONE is positive
Fuck ’em, Well not fuck ’em fuck ’em.
Yes, the checkbox should be there – my partner is HIV positive and under treatment and “undetectable” – that drives my care for him to ensure he sticks to the treatment and the regular checks, it also led to my own education about how we have sex, and the whole subject of people living with HIV. I’m less scared now, because I can talk about it and help others not feel aggressed by such a basic and important item of an intimate relationship. The checkbox is a reminder of this, and a door-opener.
Hahaha! What a mouthful! Thank you very much. Looking forward to the next video.
######## i am glad i found your profile on yt, u are my little hero who reminds me that there actually are people who talks some importan stuff I like your point of view on many topics and what especially I liked in particular is your video How to Stop Hating Yourself U 😉 take care ########
Hah november 26th was my birthday turned 19 xD
Personally there should be but then again no because if you don’t think it’s important to think about before hand then u should probably get it then have a fun time with your ignorant self thinking about how to now deal with it :-$ me and my bad sarcasm lol.
