Charging people with a felony for knowing giving sexual partners HIV without disclosing their infection is "homophobic" and "discriminatory" against LGBT people, according to California state lawmakers.
From LA Times:
State lawmakers on Monday gave final legislative approval to a bill that would reduce from a felony to a misdemeanor the crime of knowingly exposing a sexual partner to HIV without disclosing the infection.Spreading HIV is a basic human right, bigots.
Of course, evil Republicans opposed the bill:
Republicans, including Sen. Joel Anderson of San Diego, voted against the bill, saying it puts the public at risk.Woah, woah, woah. What about gay people's feelings, though? Bet you never thought of that, did you?
Just because 1 in 5 gay men has HIV according to the CDC and it has spawned the disturbing phenomena of "bugchasing" doesn't mean you have a right to single out knowingly spreading HIV as any different than coughing on someone to give them a cold.
Glad to hear these laws are catching up with our progressive values.
Wiener noted that modern drug treatment can make someone with HIV noninfectous to others, but he said the law had not kept up with science.While San Francisco Democratic Senator Scott Wiener is working to make knowingly spreading HIV a misdemeanor, he's sponsoring another bill which would make "misgendering" someone at a public health facility punishable by up to one year in prison and a $1,000 fine.
That's what we call progress, folks.
