Sigh… I just want to know why/how he got AIDS.

Seems like its easy to be infected if one often has anal sex. Requesting scientific explanation.

I just want to ask when Tianyi will be sentenced. How much longer is it going to drag on for? And how much longer can it be dragged on for? Those who have the same questions as I do, ding me!!! [7,970 upvotes during the time of translation]

You won’t die if you didn’t hype this, but this behavior of yours will definitely disgust people to death.

I think it’s good, better than those who hide their conditions and secretly infect others. If there’s a girl who’s willing to [marry him], at least she’ll know what kind of choice she has made.

aimory [网易河北省沧州市网友]: (responding to ip:182.124.*.*)

Chinese people:
1. Very smart/clever, but very likely to believe rumors.
2. Like to fight over/scramble for everything, scrambling for seats, not knowing to let people off before getting on when riding the bus or elevator.
3. Can submit to humiliation in big matters, but fight and squabble over small things.
4. If something can be accomplished through connections, they’ll never do it through legitimate/proper ways.
5. Complain not about unfairness, but about not being the one who benefits/profits.

6. Always criticizing the outside world, but seldom examining themselves.
7. It doesn’t matter if they themselves are happy, as long as others aren’t happy.
8. Don’t cheer for their friends’ success, but are willing to donate for a stranger’s misfortune.
9. Don’t extend a hand to the perseverance of the strong, but are willing to shed a tear for the compromise of the weak.
10. Are unwilling to be burdened by carrying out the rules and regulations, preferring instead to suffer adapting to/complying with unwritten rules.

11. Don’t struggle for the benefit of the whole, but willing to curse in rage for the misfortunes of the whole.
12. Don’t seek the wealth and welfare of the future, but willing to take risks for petty short-term advantages before their eyes.
13. Don’t know about the obligations and responsibilities they owe their country and society, only know to demand the ZF to give this and do that.
14. Most Chinese people have never learned what is the meaning of a decent and respectable life. That obtaining power or money is everything in life, that it is success. The national phenomenon of corruption, degeneration, and ignorance is unmatched and forever will be unmatched in human history!
15. What’s ridiculous is that Chinese people will divide themselves by region and area [where they are from] and curse each other, belittling each other, and sometimes fall out with their own family over nothing but money and house property.

凤凰网上海市嘉定区网友 asobi2:

To treat a bad thing as if it were glorious and promote it will mislead society and especially the young. To not discriminate [against AIDS patients] should be the greatest bottom line. To ask other people to fall in love with an AIDS-infected man should be within the scope of individual choice, which society shouldn’t encourage or indulge, otherwise everyone will be in danger.

    I wonder if he has aid’s or if he’s HIV positive? Also I think the assumption that he got Aid’s by having anal sex and thats the only way to get it is a bit wrong, people who’s parents can contract it, people can get injected by a dirty needle can get it. It may not be his fault, but even if it were he shouldn’t be punished, though I wonder if you married a young woman she wouldn’t be able to bear you a child for fear you would infect her.

    • Zappa Frank

      maybe using artificial insemination she could. but the problem remain that having AIDS your life, even using medicine that i’m afraid are quite expansive, would likely be shorter than normal, leaving your wife and child alone too early.

      • Nope. No reason it will be shorter these days – other than walking in front of a bus. The new drugs literally banish it from your body. Some recent trials have taken it to the point where it can’t be detected in tests any more and patients have stayed that way for 2 years after ceasing the drugs. It’s been non stop balls to the wall medical research on this for nearly 30 years now.

        • Zappa Frank

          i didn’t know that, indeed is a good new. But average chinese can afford such drugs?

          • Webster

            The government subsidizes it…
            Honestly, the only issue is for people who want to move abroad – it’s usually impossible to get treatment.

            Once the virus is undetectable in your system, the risk of infecting another person drops dramatically. In other words, there is nothing inherently risky in being with someone if their viral load is undetectable and use protection.

            I honestly don’t know what’s worse, some of the comments on the original article or the ones here on China Smack.

            But hey, I’m sure you all will be perfectly healthy for your entire lives. No worries. No need for empathy.

          • Zappa Frank

            in china government pays this kind of treatment? really? i though was something that only a north european country could do.

          • Webster

            Almost all countries do…even in the US you can get government subsidized medication if you can’t afford insurance, as it’s classified as a disability.
            The UN (or World Health Org…) has been working with different countries since access to the treatment is supposed to be easy.

            The problem is that it is expensive so not every country can afford to do it. In China, the problem isn’t the medication, it’s primary care – which can be horrible.

            Honestly, we’ve gotten to the point in modern medicine in which we’ve virtually achieved an “effective cure,” but the virus remains dormant in the human body – sometimes for years before re-surging. Hence, you must take the medication everyday, for the rest of your life.

            When one has HIV, he/she must take care to not get sick as the immune system is already compromised.

            AIDS is a result of the immune system completely failing. HIV is simply a condition. It does not kill you. In fact, AIDS doesn’t either, but opportunistic infections do.

    • xuedi

      about 80% of all HIV infections in china are still due to bad hospital infusions, then drug related and a bit STD related. The fact that he is aware of his condition (i assume he takes medication) and his age its very unlikely he reached a ADIS yet ….

      • 上官

        More likely the liberal gays coming to our country to ‘teach’ ESL. They are using ESL in the same way that they used the Catholic Church to access children.

        • mr.wiener

          They’ll have to get in line behind the party cadres and public officials then.
          Your ideas smack of the whole “Aids is a foreign problem shtick”.

        • chandlerpatrick

          You sir, have been stamped: Fucking Idiot

        • chandlerpatrick

          And the Fu Er Dai shit-heads like yourself are going to our countries to “study”

        • You seem really disgruntled about a gay ESL teacher. You must have had a really…deeply…painful experience with one in the past (or ongoing?). It must be a real pain in the ass for you.

          • mr.wiener

            Oh dear god, I was drinking a beer [not miller lite!] when I was reading that and most of it came back up through my nose!

          • Glad I could give your sinuses a much-needed drink

  • 剑胆琴心

    should lock them up, or they will revenge the society one day.
    there is a aids village in henan, they are locked.
    aids also popular in my province as far its the place where drugs come into china…so hateful!

    • Zappa Frank

      LOL!!!

    • xuedi

      … better lock people up who do not pass a minimum understanding of the world and still post their prejudiced rubbish in comments

    • Germandude

      剑胆琴心 on full retard mode as usual. Nothing to see here. Move on!

      • linette lee

        Can you stop using such mean words to eattot all the time. She has the right to express her thought and you have the right to express your disagreement. Why so nasty all the time to her. Be a gentleman will ya??? You want me to call you names?

        • biggj

          If he says something retarded i’m sure he wont mind you calling him names. :)

          • linette lee

            hahaha….what should I call him. Give me some ideas.

          • biggj

            Eattot hater guy.

          • 剑胆琴心

            猪肉荣,also good for him.

          • Germandude

            And right there you come with the really mean stuff. Thanks man.

          • Germandude

            I auto-win when someone plays the Nazi-card cause that one is old.

          • linette lee

            Don’t like people calling you racist name?
            Like…nazi boy. hahaha..lol.. You are bullshxtting right? Your Chinese wife doesn’t use racist names on you when she is mad at you. I don’t believe it. She probably called you Nazi., sourcrap(sauerkraut with a chinese accent), lol

          • mr.wiener

            …..Aaaaand she went there.

        • Germandude

          linette,
          so pointing out when she is posting utter crap and calling that “being on retard mode” is too mean? While my statement is still true? Or would you agree with that statement of hers? I don’t mind agreeing with her when I think she is right but statements like the above are…. well exactly what I called it: retarded.
          Feel free to throw any insult towards me but don’t feel any fake regret when you caused me to jump in front of a train.

          • linette lee

            Germandude, you know eattot for a long time. Both of you have been here posting for a long time so you should have more patience with her unlike other newer bloggers who don’t know her. You understand eattot grew up in a different environment. The environment she was raised influence her thinking and philosophy. You probably would think like her if your were raised in China and not raised in a western country. So why not just exchange thought and stop being so flat out nasty calling her names all the time like retxrd and stxpid. Another thing she is a girl and you are macho man. Why not just brush her off with a laugh if you find her comments silly like a gentleman.

          • You can’t use “she was raised in China” to excuse someone for a very hateful comment.

          • linette lee

            Some of her comments are a bit overboard, but we all posted hateful comments at some point.

          • If we are, first of all, supposed to believe that we all post hateful comments on the scale of saying everyone with AIDS should be “locked up”, as if that’s some kind of excuse, then why aren’t you giving Germandude some slack for his comment?

          • linette lee

            she also said that some hiv people are revengeful and want to spread the virus to other. With that thought she made a hateful comment.
            I got a bit annoyed with Germandude because on many other posts he was just flat out nasty and calling her names. I was just suggesting don’t be so nasty.

          • Repatriated

            She didn’t say “some”, she said “they”…which would make one think she’s referring to “all”.

          • I trust you’re going to defend us all from the hateful, nasty comments we’re receiving now, right?

          • linette lee

            Yes I will. If another blogger flat out keep calling you names I will defend you.

          • You’ve got a lot of work to do following up with her replies to us, then.

          • linette lee

            hahahaha…lol a tiring job? Speaking of tiring I am tired lately from the heat and eating tons of watermelons. The watermelons are so cheap my god. ONe whole big watermelon is only $3.99. This price you won’t find in East Asia. In HK fruit is sooooooo expensive.

          • Germandude

            Probably because I disagreed with her once and she couldn’t take the criticism.. I honestly don’t know.

            I still stand to what I said. If eattot writes utter crap, I point that out. If she writes sth meaningful and I think i should add sth in support, I do so. Now if girls want to be treated equal, which should be a no brainer, they should also accept that this concept foes both ways.

          • Was just hearing this yesterday… an interesting theory… how to really make men and women equal?? So far we have seen plenty of shit thrown at men for being “sexist pigs”. Such shits are:- work practices that can get a man fire if she felt offended,
            -women’s rights clubs and if there were men’s only clubs, they usually are criticized.
            -women constantly use the sex/feminism card to reason their incapacity to do a job. (see andrea richards @ sendgrid debacle.)
            There are plenty of more shit that we as people create to feel better about equality when in fact it only makes things worse for everyone and perpetuates feminism to which I think nowadays is awful. (I am a woman as you might have already known.)

            These feminist nazi issues are making us women look bad. Instead of teaching young girls how to act appropriately and understanding a situation without being defensive is to bubble wrap the girl herself. This is a good thing rather than bubble wrapping the whole society to subject men to such nonsense.

            Women and men are physiologically different. Therefore women has more hormones and are emotional most of the time. Not saying all women don’t have control but a lot don’t. I included. Point is.. men are giving women too much slack and saying that it’s okay for women to whine and cry because they are naturally emotional on the job or whatever. That is bullshit. If women want to take their jobs seriously, they can meditate, take a breather, regain control of their emotions and not blame it on guys being sexist.

            I truly believe that women if they can’t handle the nature of people that cracks up jokes whenever or where ever, they should go back to the kitchen.

          • linette lee

            Your comment here to eattot wasn’t viciously mean. I was just saying you don’t have to be so flat out nasty to her all the time calling her name. I would say the same thing to whiskersthecat or mr.wiener if they do the same thing because you boys know eattot for a long time and know how she is. Whatever do whatever you want I am not your mom.

          • 剑胆琴心

            i do not wanna write to you, your a very boring person. good luck!

          • haha whatever you want

          • Zappa Frank

            ettot sometimes is almost cute for her naiveness, sometimes i think in truth she’s kidding us all pretending to be like that, but if not than she is not even an average chinese, and different a environment is not enough to explain what she says.

        • chandlerpatrick

          You can’t deny the fact that what she said was just stupid…

        • biggj

          Would you feel the same if a guy said that?

          • YueYungui

            Yes? Why does she get a free pass because she’s female? What about equality?

      • biggj

        Tell you the truth, I don’t see the big deal about what you wrote. It was not that mean. Just a normal response when someone says something really stupid.Look at the votes. 2 up and 14 down for her comment. The up votes were probably from linette to protect some diva girl power shit. And the other probably from that creepy guy who has a Internet crush on her. And even they probably think what she wrote is retarded. I say if she can voice opinions like that. than you can say what you wrote. Cause and effect.

        • Germandude

          Ah don’t worry. The way I see it, my comment helped some people to kill some time and pretending to care. I am still waiting for a train to jump in front.

    • Chael_Sonnen

      I like you.

      • chandlerpatrick

        Ummm…So we should send them all off to this village… and keep them there? That is practical? You sir, are fucking stupid.

      • chandlerpatrick

        yep…

      • lonetrey / Dan

        It’s one thing for Eattot to voice her opinion….

        And it’s another when someone likes you confirms it and declares it the most reasonable opinion when you have clearly already read all the other comments/opinions.

      • 剑胆琴心

        good
        kiss kiss!

    • You do know that Aids is like a common cold these days. It isn’t a death sentence and is hardly a barrier to a normal life in every which way. I’d rather have aids, than lung cancer – which is more likely in China.

      • Don’t Believe the Hype

        I don’t think a single Chinese person really understands what AIDS even is. To them it is just another “foreign” brough disease. I’m sure they even think sars was brought by westerners.

      • donnachadh

        HIV is not like a common cold. If you are infected you have to take medication for the rest of your life to avoid developing AIDS.

      • 剑胆琴心

        so many people in the world and china. who cares?
        有命该生,无命该死!even healthy people not get proper treatment let alone diseased people…
        who knows what they would do one day…
        kill kids in kindergarten? inject blood to passersby in street? fuck around to revenge healthy people???
        and the girl in my office before was injected or poked on bus in shanghai…

        • Zappa Frank

          what if you were one of this diseased people? maybe you got it because a one night unprotected sex, maybe you got it because a mistake of the hospital, or many other reasons. Would you like to be locked down? would you like to be left alone without any treatment that could make your life at least less shorter? would you like to be avoided by others? Somone may become revengeful when there’s no emphaty at all.. Is it so hard to try to wear their shoes even for an instant

    • chandlerpatrick

      I’m all for ways to make the world safer and better… This guy, seems responsible, full disclosure of his illness. Not harming anybody. Safe. Now, the asshole who goes and infects someone on purpose, should be fucking stoned to death…

      • Arsehole. When and where did this ass thing take off on the internet and it is all donkeys when it is meant to be butts?

          You don’t agree? Do tell…

          • mr.wiener

            He was disagreeing with your spelling of “Arse”. I arseume he prefers the English spelling.

          • The English spelling of English. Sounds like a scene from Inception… :-)

            Good one! :)

        • chandlerpatrick

          I get it now. Ok, then the arsehole who goes and infects someone on purpose needs to be stoned to death…

          • Indeed. I am starting an internet campaign in defence of Donkeys. They have been dragged into too much crap of late and what have they done?

          • chandlerpatrick

            Haha, good luck with that… I’d change if I could to support your cause, but I can’t….

        • Well, if you see an ass ride it

      • donnachadh

        … carefully

        • chandlerpatrick

          Many Arab countries still have public beatings and stonings. I like that. Harsh and embarassing punishment. Allow the people who have been wronged to take part (if they so choose). I don’t think I’m being too radical, but the alleged has to be proven guilty before sentenced (in court). The punishment needs to fit the crime – sex offenders need to be castrated, theives should have a hand severed, and murders need to be stoned to death… And stupids like 剑胆琴心 need to be lobotomized…

          • donnachadh

            Well I meant carefully because you are stoning someone with HIV and you might risk some blood spattering on you if you do not do it carefully. I was making a joke.

            As for infecting people on purpose I agree that this should be criminalised or else prosecuted under existing criminal laws such as those relating to murder, manslaughter, grievous bodily harm, etc. depending on the circumstances and the jurisdiction.

            The punishment fitting (or reflecting) the crime in the very direct sense you advocate is another more general issue and one on which I don’t share your views.

          • chandlerpatrick

            Right. There would have to be some method of blood splatter protection in that issue!
            Punishment fitting the crime is another issue – which I am not hard-lined on myself, but you can’t ignore the fact that many Arab nations have fairly low Murder, GBH, manslaughter rates – and even lower rates of petty crimes like theft. They are the nations using these methods of punishment. In the west, get convicted of stealing a wallet, and you could at most get a year or two behind bars – but more likely, have to pay a fine and have a criminal record – the risk outweighs the potential punishment. In an Arab nation, get caught for the same thing, have your hand chopped off, have a record, and probably still end up in jail.. to me, that risk does not outweigh the punishment, and I would be a lot less willing to commit a crime, knowing that a very harsh punishment would be waiting for me.

          • Germandude

            For that we all know how advanced that culture is… No offense man but what you wrote there could be signed by Al Qaeda or the extreme right wing. Both known for not being up to date and pretty mental.

          • chandlerpatrick

            And our cultures are more advanced? Going to war at the drop of a hat, high poverty and murder rates? drug abuse running rampant in teenagers? (I’m all for a good time, but it’s not indictive of advanced culture) I also said that the person needs to be found guilty in court before sentencing – I doubt Al Qaeda holds court. I take my political values as I see them. I support LGBT, and I also think that criminals need to be punished. (I understand that public stonings are extreme – and was using those are mere examples of how inept our cultures are in dealing with criminals. If you knew you were going to get your hand cut off for stealing a purse – you’re going to think long and hard about doing it…)

          • Germandude

            Hm. Harsh penalties don’t prevent crime happening. Just check out the US which has harder penalties, including the death penalty, and compare that to Europe which doesn’t.

          • chandlerpatrick

            I never once said that harsh penalties would STOP crime, but you can’t deny the fact that nations which do have harsh penalties have lower crime rates (compared to others) – Not all states in the U.S have the death penalty btw, and the ones which do have lower crime rates! – Sorry, that is a FACT. You can check that for yourself. Most European countries have stricter gun control – which reduces the number of gun related deaths (so that is also and important factor), however You can check the petty crime rates in Europe (and actually they are fairly high)… I’m not talking about (only) crimes which might warrent a death sentence, but crimes which harm society as a whole. Europe might benefit from having a few pickpockets having their hands cut off…(as would all other countries)

          • Mihel

            The punishment needs to fit the crime – sex offenders need to be castrated, theives should have a hand severed, and murders need to be stoned to death.

          I agree and apologize that I didn’t find that pic earlier. Ah bullshit. I blame Atlas for having found that pic earlier so the only option I had was to write my honest opinion in straight words.

    • linette lee

      With medications many hiv people live long. But treatment is very expensive not just for hiv but all the other STD, which also can be life threatening causing liver damage and other long term health problems.
      HIV won’t spread as much if people are educated about HIV transmission. You can get it through coming in contact with body fluids of the infected person. The most common share needles. People just need to learn to protect themselves not only from revengeful HIV carriers but also all the other STD like herpes and hepaptitis. Who wants to deal with that for life? And since STD are very common among many people, how can we lock up everybody?

      • biggj

        Didn’t you pay attention in school? You can’t get aids though contact with a infected persons body fluids. That would mean kissing you could catch it. It has to enter the blood steam.

        • linette lee

          body fluid like blood and semen. You can get virus through in your mouth. Like oral sex. LIke mouth to your pxnis or vxgina. So your mouth is not safe or immune. lol. Tears, urines, saliva, feces are not infectious.

          • biggj

            But it still has to get into your blood stream. Like if you have cuts or sores in your mouth or throat or something then there is risk. So unless it’s getting into your blood stream, you should be ok. You can get other STD pretty easy though your mouth. HIV is not so easy.

            And why did you spell penis and vagina like “Pxnis and Vxgine” hahahah. Your parents tell you these were bad words? haha

          • linette lee

            Yes, getting into your blood stream and you can get infected. But the oral cavity is the oral mucous membrane function as absorption and secretion. And virus can infect the mucous membrane in oral cavity.

            haahah.. I am shy talking about private parts. XD

          • biggj

            It’s still way less of a risk. I not saying it can’t be done. It’s just less likely. Like having oral sex with someone with HIV does not 100% mean you will catch it.

            Don’t be shy. You’re not in high school any more.
            I named my penis. It’s name is ” Miles Long” hahaha

          • chandlerpatrick

            You’re both right – HIV needs to enter the blood to infect. Sexual fluids, saliva, etc. can all transfer. Obviously the risks are different depending on the actions. You could have unprotected anal sex with someone who has Aids, and not get it, or you could make out with someone who has HIV and catch it. It’s not an exact science. Anything short of injecting yourself with a needle of Magic Johnsons blood is just playing the odds…

    • lonetrey / Dan

      What about the innocent people who are infected?

      People who were tricked (their partners lying or not telling about it) or people who were born with HIV (from mother)?

      Do we lock them up too?

      I never get a response from you, Eattot. Why is that? :/

            I’d like to see what’s the source of Eattot’s “madness”, I suppose. Though, I don’t really think it’s actually madness. That’s just the word that first pops into multiple comments when speaking about Eattot.

          • Nick in Beijing

            I don’t regard it as madness either. Just plain old boring vanilla flavored airheadedness.

    • donnachadh

      It is true that tens of thousands of people in Henan were infected with HIV by the government. See the below (from Wikipedia).

      ‘From the early to mid-1990s a network of businessmen and government workers, known as “bloodheads”, set up hundreds of official and unofficial blood donation stations in Henan Province to supply the market for blood plasma created by hospitals and manufacturers of health products. The common practice of reusing needles, not screening for diseases, sellers traveling from station to station with false records to maximize their income, and the mixing the blood prior to centrifuging and re-injecting the separated red blood cells back into the peasant blood-sellers guaranteed the rapid spread of blood-borne diseases such as HIV and Hepatitis B.’

      It is the government officials responsible for this scandal who should be locked up! (Idiots like you, on the other hand, should be shot, and your family sent a bill for the bullet.)

      • chandlerpatrick

Just because the lao wai in China have nothing at stake doesn’t mean that the rest of us don’t.

    Brave kid.

    “Yet many other passers-by still refused to stop even if to simply exchange a few words.” Western is sensationalistic and strives for shock and fear, and Chinese media is melodramatic…. oh, heavens! other passers-by refused to stop! woe!

    As if hundreds of people walking by should all stop and have a conversation with the guy…. OF COURSE not everyone’s going to stop!

    • Kai

      Er, I don’t think it was melodramatic. It was more of a juxtaposition, first saying that some people stopped then saying “still” others avoided him, partially reinforcing the fact that people have certain irrational fears about people with AIDS, as if mere contact or proximity can result in being infected.

      So, as many of us probably expected, a lot of people avoided him and maybe there were even more people who didn’t even notice him as they went about their lives. In big cities, it’s pretty easy to kinda tune out or dismiss things almost subconsciously with peripheral vision, behaviors/adaptations that people new to big cities interpret as being self-absorbed, cold, indifferent, or apathetic without you intending to.

  • moldavidian

    I know a girl from Beijing called Anna who also wants to get married very much but the problem is that she has contracted some STDs as well and lies about it. In fact, she lies about nearly everything. She claims to be Japanese but doesn’t speak it. She also claimed to be a singer and a piano teacher but can’t play. She might even have HIV for all i know as she seems to have a new “friend” every day that she met in Sanlitun or perhaps at the Beijing airport. She claims to be working at Holiday Inn in Shanghai now and has a friend called Charles (get tested) but that could all be a lie too. I know this because i tried to help her but in the end, she lied too much and cheated me so heads up to any of you who might meet her.

  • UserID01

    5000 years of civilization and still no fucking intelligence. “Seems like its easy to be infected if one often has anal sex. Requesting scientific explanation.”

    This statement is so mind-blowingly contradictory to me. This idiot spouts off with horrible misinformation and then requests “scientific explanation.” What a dumbass. It’s with ignorance like this that I’m surprise MORE people in China don’t have this potentially lethal disease. Thinking you’re exempt because you don’t participate in ONE certain behavior can cause drastic consequences. Did this person think that the women who have AIDS got it from anal sex with each other?

    • Kai

      That comment seems pretty innocuous to me. The amount of ignorance about HIV is frankly appalling throughout the entire world. You have parents in Western countries still throwing hissy fits if their child has to share a classroom with a kid with HIV.

      The history of and even persisting stigma that HIV is a homosexual disease is well known. Anal sex is considered a risky behavior with regards to HIV because of the risk of tears increasing the likelihood of direct fluid exchange and thus infection. Vaginal sex is “safer” due to naturally occurring lubrication that reduces the risk of tears from intercourse (YMMV). If there’s a scientific explanation for why anal sex increases the chance of HIV infection, that’s pretty much it.

      I read that comment as the guy knowing the behavior to be risky but not knowing exactly why it increases chances of infection. Not really contradictory or idiotic, even possibly humble since he’s asking to be enlightened.

    • donscarletti

      Even though it is possible to get HIV through heterosexual same-species sex (especially through M-F anal intercourse), it is completely impossible to get HIV through fucking a horse.

      Not only is wholesomely boning mares and fillies safe from getting AIDS, but even if a man fucks a stallion up its butthole and gives its throbbing, half-metre long phallus the reach-around he cannot get HIV, since horses simply cannot carry this particular virus.

  • Marriage, no sex, die faster than the norm? This is a highly unlikely situation for his success given the condition of China, and their mentality. It makes no sense to have a HIV baby even if love exists. For China’s scale on wanting wealth and prosperity, how could a guy who soiled his virginity AND gotten AIDS be looked upon freely without judgement. These people pretending to be brave are just petty shows. In reality, they wouldn’t be the ones marrying this guy. Which Beijing girl would be willing? Instant put off without in the disguise of honesty.

    Get this treatment and maybe he can negotiate.

    BREAKING NEWS!!! One of the 3 officials have been kick out of the “illustrious 3”. They caught him with a sign in the middle of road looking for a wife and saying he has AIDS. This is a sad day for China and the world.

    UPDATE!!!! We have news that the official was forced to wear this sign by anonymous person claiming he would bomb a subway if the official did not wear this sign in public. Chinese police have been watching the bootlegged version of “DIE HARD 3” to see what they should do next. We will keep you informed with information as we receive it. The official has been let back in the Illustrious 3 and will offer any support to end this awful situation.

  • Gay Azn Boi

    Lol @ the guy who thinks it’s easy to get HIV with anal sex. The fact is heterosexual couples are just as likely to get the disease if either partner is infected and they don’t use protection. It seems that the 80s myth that HIV/AIDS is a “gay” disease is still alive and well in some people. Quite sad actually. But whether you’re gay or straight, always insist on using protection. Whenever I hook up I always insist on the guy using a condom. If he doesn’t want to then I’ll just be like sorry but you’re not putting your dick in me. There’s really no point in asking if they have a disease since no one would admit even if they do. That’s what everyone should be doing.

    • Harold Janson

      Which is totally why it’s a disease that is equally distributed and totally not just about all hitting fags and druggies.

    • Cauffiel

      HIV infection is higher not with homosexuals per se, but with anal sex. Buttholes aren’t designed for sex, and tend to get tiny fissures when given a good hard pounding. This is HIV’s ingress.

      The vagina is made to take a walloping from a big donkey dick and balls, so is less prone to HIV transmission, and givers (men) are less likely to be infected by takers (women’s vag and both men/women buttholes) because the male urethra is small, frequently has fast moving streams of fluid coming out of it, and most importantly doesn’t have anything inserted into it.

      This is generally true of all fluid-transmitted STDs. Pretty standard high school health class stuff.

  • donnachadh

    HIV is the name of a virus. AIDS is the name of the condition that develops in HIV infected individuals an average of ten years after they were first infected. If those infected with HIV undergo treatment however they can avoid AIDS and enjoy a normal or near normal lifespan.

    These are some very basic facts that the writer of the above article, the people commenting on it, and some of the people commenting on Chinasmack seem unaware of.

    Anal sex is more prone to infection as anal canal is not strong and robust like vagina which has a very strong muscle. So often there is tear in anus during sex which result in blood and body fluid such as sperm entering the blood stream there by leading to infection. Moreover, nature has not designed or evolved enough for anus for sex.
