Who would announce they have AIDS over Facebook? One of my acquaintances that I have mentioned on my blog did so the other day, as did his former hookup. It was random and there was no real reason for it, except one of them is raising money for a foundation to find a cure. Do you say "congrats, I'm glad you're raising money?" I don't know - it just struck me as weird to come out and say that. I guess it also struck me since these are the first 2 people I know with this. It also struck me because it's online and for the whole world to see...
The status message said "I am happy to have AIDS and raise money for ____ AIDS Foundation."
The hookup said: "New insurance won't cover my hookup meds, I have AIDS"
Do you like that? WTF?
