  1. OK, So it sounds like they are banning ads that make fun of or unfairly portray gay people. SO why are gay people mad?

  3. Gee, I wish I could be a luscious, semi-naked, semi-pornographic, entirely waxed ray of sunshine into the lives of HIV positive people everywhere. This being an old, worn out, ruined long-term survivor/cripple who makes people look the other way even when I'm not shitting blood isn't what it's cracked up to be.

    Just sayin'...

  4. FYI, I think that Cheetos vid was actually a re-upload. The user is hocking his own warez in his info, here's the original user who owns the video (I think):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2duYw2-yM4

    It's only fair we give him the credit.

  5. I'm thinking two things:

    1) good for Jack. He looks good. He's keeping things very positive.

    2) who is the idiot that thinks this is a positive public health message? Maybe it helps those who've already gotten the bug. But it is a horrible and dangerous message for all those young ones whose HIV infection rate is on the climb. Message: "See Jack. See Jack looks good. See no consequences for unsafe sex..." Really incomprehensible.

    Oh, wait a minute, I think Merck, the drug company, has its name on the ad... Now I get it.

  6. I'm torn on the HIV PSA.

    On one hand, good to see that people recognize it's not a death sentence.

    On the other hand, it can't be treated just like any other disease. We are moving back to minimizing its impact with the idea that "the right med is out there for you"...
