Take the pill – you know you want to.

I figured out what it is I don’t like about the new Truvada treatment. I find it irresponsible.

My entire adult life HIV has been something that I have tried to avoid. At first it was because it killed you. Later it was because that even though it didn’t kill you anymore, the treatment would render you disfigured and unfuckable many years before entering old age. To summarize… I didn’t want sex to kill me and I didn’t want to live my life as a slave of drugs – yeah I know. It’s only two things. It didn’t really need a summary.

A brand new drug has entered the market and what do you know, they’ve succeeded in convincing a whole range of gay men that the way to live life is to willingly make yourself a slave of a drug, because if you do, you can fuck bareback as much as you want, and you will only be infected with chlamydia, herpes, gonorrhea, hepatitis and syphilis to name a few. I mean three of these can be treated with penicillin – while it still works. Herpes only shows up once in a while and it will take ages for hepatitis induced liver failure will weaken you to the point of death.

You don’t need to take care. You don’t need to use your head. All you need is to take the pill and all your worries will go away. It is even said to be a better prophylactic than condoms! Catholics rejoice!
