And I literally think every woman should have the mindset that every male they meet is HIV positive. It could save so many lives. Just get tested. The rapid test at many of these clinics takes 5-10 minutes! What's 5-10 minutes versus having to pay hundreds-thousands for treatment for the rest of your life? What's 5-10 minutes to saving your life? If someone objects then consider yourself lucky because he/she may have something to hide. 

eta: I'm not responding to the personal crap y'all have going on. HIV IS KILLING OUR COMMUNITY. I repeat, HIV IS KILLING BLACK MEN AND WOMEN.

We are the group LEAST likely to be able to afford treatment yet we have the fastest growing rates in the country.

 There are people on this very board who do not know their status. There are anonymous women and men who browse these boards every day who need to see threads like this as a catalyst to get tested. Take your issues to the Random Thoughts thread or something.

nvm, dont answer.. i wont derail the thread any further. 
continue on with your positive, uplifting, serious conversation about how to better our women whilst inbetween commenting on ineptness and poorness of bhm.

Being thought of as poor is worse than HIV?!? We have a long way to go.

Not to mention herpes, chlamydia, gonorrhea, etc. 

I just wish our women would get tested! 

Stop settling for these in the "heat-of-the-moment" acts of "love" only to find out that man who really just wanted to f*ck then bounce left you with a lifelong affliction. It's not worth it. It's never worth it!!

babel, that wasnt the point… 





but anyways, i know ive been vocal on here about my carelessness as far as protecting myself before… 
im not about that life anymore and it is a very serious issue.. and people do think, 'it wont happen to me..' but yea, im going to be more responsible about it. i was dumb.

My post was to no one in particular. The tone of the thread actually saddens me as a black female.

actually there are two approaches to this issue in this thread

one that actually tries to figure out why poor black women have higher rates

then the other states ses does not matter, it affects us all

people focus on what they want to though.......

I would rather read up on stats (from peer reviewed journals) and read anecdotes from those in the field and then comment....but I have not looked up any articles

I don't believe the higher HIV rates are due to black women being less responsible, less aware or less educated

There's likely a systemic reason for this
