Yes, I was wondering just how

Yes, I was wondering just how he allegedly exposed them. Used needles? Sex? It's a vague story so far.

It is talk like that of

It is talk like that of positiveguy that leads to people unknowingly contracting HIV. When your lifestyle causes the contraction of such things, there should be no political correctness about it (I personally think being PC about anything is BS). If you know you have HIV/AIDS and have contact (any form that can transmit the virus) with a person who is not infected and do not tell them about it, no matter the form of contact, then you should be charged with attempted murder. If they contract AIDS, then you should be charged with murder when they die.

I wanna send out my deepest sympathy to the women that this man has exposed this deadly virus to......If you are not married or in a committed relationship never trust a man that much,not to protect yourself.
