Confession: You might wanna get tested – slut-shaming and HIV

Now, this post is pretty messed up in its own right. But to then blame the unsuspecting woman for this situation? Sies.

The majority of comments on the post were completely outraged by the confession. Interestingly, their rage was largely directed at the confessor for failing to wear a condom and failing to tell the affected woman in person.

  1. Why, please Lord in Heaven, why? What would make a man post this and think it is funny? Have we progressed beyond fart-jokes and toilet humour, to rape and hiv jokes? Where do we go from here? Child-molestation? Baby rape?

    Finally, please Lord, let this be a joke… The alternative is too horrific to contemplate…
