It's easier for a gay man to be infected with HIV than it is for a hetero woman to become pregnant, yet it carries a much greater stigma.
But WHY are so many young men getting infected? Are there really that many defective condoms out there? Or have we attached a certain glamor to high risk behaviors, just because the risk is somewhat lessened from where it used to be? I worry that a lot of the youngest sexually active kids don't understand that HIV is still life changing, even if it is no longer an automatic death sentence.
