Friendly reminder ԅ(≖‿≖ԅ) that if you don’t sleep with someone for the sole reason that they’re HIV positive then you ARE being discriminatory towards a human being with a disease and you’re scum of the earth
I like that it ends with “respect people’s feelings” when it literally just says “You should put your own feelings aside”. Honestly, being awful to someone or not being someone’s friend because they have HIV would yeah, kind of make you a bad person, but choosing not to have sex with someone for ANY REASON — especially if it puts you are risk — is totally your own choice and always should be.
Yes, people have STIs that range from deadly serious to minor inconveniences (herpes and genital warts are on the rise) and the people who have these issues are still people and it doesn’t make them any less worthy of love and sex. But nothing makes you entitled to sex from people who don’t want to have sex with you. Which I think is a lesson a lot of people on this website don’t grasp.
If someone does not find you sexually attractive for whatever reason, or would not be comfortable having sex with you, THAT IS THEIR RIGHT and you shaming them for it makes you the one in the wrong.

Um no, HBO. Could you maybe not?
Despite the staggering amount of sex — plenty of which is obviously thrown in for T & A content — added to the show, I think I can count on just my hands the amount of times people have had actual for real consensual sex on screen in the Game of Thrones series (discounting prostitutes because sometimes that consent is murky except with Pod idk?). It’s a disturbing trend, where even scenes that are written in the books as consensual or mentioning the value of consent, whoops nope, just a chance for a few more instances of rape being thrown in as “titillating”, and that is pretty much just gross. Like, actually super gross and it makes me feel gross.
I shouldn’t be surprised — like, for real does anyone remember the scene with Dany and Drogo’s first time in the books, where he asked her for her consent the whole time for each step and waited until she gave it enthusiastically? Now set this against in the show where it becomes a super uncomfortable rape scene without any agency afforded to her at all — which was the point of why she actually fell in love with him, because he gave her agency for the first time (with the horse which they also don’t go into really either, and also the sex, but the horse too) even if it was in some fucked up ways…
I’m mad. But yeah no seriously, gross. Gross.
Do you ever have a problem where you just don’t know how to reply to an argument, not because you don’t know the answer, but you just don’t know where to begin? Like, the foundation of knowledge you’d need to impart to this person before you could even begin to drag them out of their sinkhole of ignorance would cost thousands of dollars if it were coming from a university?
