Random musings and thoughts from a 20-year-old guy who likes men, music, video games, science, and funny stuff.
Okay, so I’ve been looking into getting on PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) and I’ve been absolutely shocked at the animosity towards this new scientific breakthrough on both sides of the poz-neg line. So, I thought I’d take a tumblr rant to explain why this drug needs to be more commonplace and more accepted. Here are a few bullet point
In conclusion, I would just like to say that saying that condoms are the only responsible way to fight the virus is illogical, unrealistic, and downright irresponsible, as proven by the prevalence of HIV today, and PrEP, along with regular use of condoms, is a much more effective strategy. HIV caused one of the most horrific and lethal pandemics of the 20th century, there is still no cure, and the virus is still spreading. The condom-only plan has failed, and we need to start pulling out the big guns for this fight before the situation gets even worse. So, if you’re at a high risk of getting HIV (basically the majority of readers of my blog), I would encourage you to talk to your doctor about getting on PrEP as part of your sex life. It could very well save your life.
Anonymous asked: I was just on your blog and like a week ago someone said you're anti-sj. if you're anti-sj, what are you pro? (this is a legitimate question).
Anti-sj is kind of a term that sounds more extreme than it is and probably also doesn’t cover what most anti-sj blogs or people that agree with it are about.
We’re not anti social justice, or against help and equality or anything like that. We’re anti the aggressive counterproductive “pseudo helping” attitude that sometimes runs rampant on tumblr under the guise of social justice. It just became kind of easy to call the people against that anti-sj and most blogs ran with it.
So for the record, I’m not against social justice itself, I’m against the toxic and stupid tumblr brand. Let’s see if I can find a few examples real quick.
[safety is now discrimination]
Or that time that people running a blog all about how white people food is shit and stupid accidentally made fun of asian food on there and quickly apologized because you can’t insult asian food it was only garbage if it was white.
Or that time death treats were sent towards a innocent tumblr blogger who posted a photo of herself in a kimono because she was “culturally appropriating” despite if being a gift from her host family abroad.
Or that time that there was a news report about the death of a white 9 year old boy over racial bullying and people responded with “cry more white tears”
Or every single time when someone claims to be offended and it’s used as a excuse to bully or threaten everyone who opposes them. And then saying that you are silencing and tone policing if people object to hostile bullying behavior.
Or absolutely annihilating anyone over something offensive they’ve said in the past and deeming people problematic and trash because god nobody ever makes a mistake or says something wrong ever in their lives, right?
Basically the toxic attitude that isn’t helping anyone and has driven people away from good causes. No room for debate, questioning things isn’t allowed. Hiding behind social justice as a shield of immunity in general and abusing that. Seeking problems behind everything and using it as an excuse for abuse, aggression, restricting and bullying.
That is what I am against.
