Anyone who engages in risky sexual behavior should take extra precautions, be it through PrEP or otherwise. While I'm certain that the WHO acknowledges this, their message nevertheless helps perpetuate the falsehood of HIV being a "gay disease."

In this conversation with KNUS last week, Tancredo says it's not what gay people do that bothers him. He says he doesn't care. But he does have a problem with gay people forcing hetero people, like him, to break their religious convictions in order to respect, include, or accommodate gays.

My friend finally growled out, "I know what you are, you're a Libertarian Democrat." Had he labeled me correctly? Has my world view devolved into conflicting combinations of Liberalism and Libertarianism? If so, must these "brands" be mutually exclusive?

Every Monday morning, "Alex" and I met for breakfast at our favorite dive in Harvard Square. I would notice bruises and cuts on his face, arms, and legs, but I assumed that the black-and-blue marks were par for the course for a guy who played scrimmage football on the weekends.
