So a well known popular black male gay blogger/vlogger has disclosed someone's HIV status on the internet. I have a few feelings on this issue. I think regardless of what someone does in their personal space, I don't think it is the job of "HIV Vigilantes" to disclose this information, especially when they have a good amount of online followers, for the entire world. However, if someone I knew was dating someone who I knew for a fact had HIV, I would bring it up to that friend personally, not putting whoever they are dating on blast online. Many HIV+ people are using the fact that they are "undetectable" as a way to go about saying that they are HIV-. I do not agree with this. I think if you are 'undetectable' just say that. That's not negative. These are different things. And while a person could do this, I don't think that exposing them online as actually positive is helpful. The vlogger has also included an unedited photo of the HIV+ person's prescription bottle which includes that person's home address. This is dangerous. Who is to stop an angry mob to going to this person's home and throwing Molotov cocktails in the window, nosy folks who to just drop by and watch the place to see who is coming and going, or worse? I just do not think that exposing people online is helpful. At least not in this way. Hell, I could print up label for any drug under the sun with your name on it with a color laser printer, stick it to a bottle, and take photo and claim that YOU are taking whatever drug I want to say that you are on. This also brings into question that if this is in fact said person's pull bottle, how did the vlogger obtain the photo? Rummaging through the trash? Going to someone's medicine cabinet (which by the way, isn't where you want to keep your rx pills anyway)? There's a lot here and with the way people don't vet things, they just run with it without trying to determine if it is actually true or not, sharing the postings on their own social circles and things just take off. I don't see the point other than to try to shame people or to come off as 'holier than thou'.
