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.

我们到底需要什么 [网易江苏省网友]: (responding to above)

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.

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.

Wouldn’t this harm the girl [who marries him]?

xTony [网易上海市网友]:

He knows clearly it’s not realistic, so why did he still do it?

You know clearly that you are going to die, why do you still live?

Who can refute him? I can’t find a reason…

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.

凤凰网江西省上饶市玉山县网友 凤凰网友: (responding to above)

Well said.

凤凰网云南省昆明市网友 凤凰网友:

AIDS-infected people in China should go to Japan to spread and proliferate~~~ to take root and sprout.

凤凰网北京市网友 手机用户:

Why impose it on other people? Is having AIDS something glorious? Should we be promoting AIDS? So immoral!

凤凰网河南省郑州市网友 fourspace: (responding to above)

SB, this is public welfare. Wouldn’t you think this was immoral when you have AIDS and are discriminated against by other people??? We’re living under the same sky, why discriminate against him?

凤凰网河北省网友 baigongzi: (responding to above)

Public welfare, public welfare your face.

凤凰网山东省网友 凤凰网友: (responding to above)

Not discriminating against you is enough, yet you want others to love you!

凤凰网广东省广州市网友 zhyy62:

A man like him still dares to promote himself on the street? Good people rarely get this disease. A single mistake can cause lasting sorrow, it’s better to treat it as a lesson.

凤凰网广东省深圳市网友 kuaibo_14975724:

2B, don’t go harming other people!

凤凰网甘肃省网友 凤凰网友:

I don’t know what’s wrong with society nowadays. Do people nowadays no longer have any sense of shame at all? This society no longer has a bottom line.
