The state of California has made it a mere misdemeanor to knowingly infect sexual partners with HIV. Democratic legislators said last month that charging bug spreaders with a felony is "homophobic" and "discriminatory."
California Governor Jerry Brown has signed a bill that reduces the crime of knowingly exposing a sexual partner to HIV without informing them from a felony to a misdemeanor.As Republican Sen. Jeff Stone said while this bill was being debated, infecting someone with HIV would "condemn one to probably $1 million in drug therapy for the rest of their lives."
San Francisco Democratic Senator Scott Wiener, who sponsored the bill, bragged about triggering "Trump world" after news of the bill's passing spread on Twitter:
According to the CDC, nearly 1 in 5 gay men has HIV, the precursor to AIDS.
A homosexual hairdresser made headlines last week for allegedly "embarking on a 'cynical campaign' to infect as many men as he could with the [HIV] virus."
As The Sun reported Friday: "A hairdresser deliberately infected at least four men with HIV after meeting them on gay dating app Grindr — before sending them mocking messages, a court heard."
Though Scott Wiener is fine with people intentionally infecting others with HIV, he sponsored a newly passed bill which makes "misgendering" someone at a public health facility punishable by up to one year in prison and a $1,000 fine.
