open the door. I asked because you hinted at something and I didn't have the full understanding as to your situation.
I asked, you answered.
And I'm sure I'm not the only one that has commented to you regarding HIV and children. If I am, well, others are possibly afraid to say so or hurt your feelings.
I haven't commented that you are stupid and whatever else you've written about
my intelligence. It was a calculated risk, and I expected something as that in return.
If I had HIV...I wouldn't have any kids..I'm truly honest in my response.
don't have any kids based on the fact that I have health problems that can be passed along. It's a decision.. I'm angered in part that I had to even consider it. I'm in a minority, and according to some, a failure.
I do make the same comment to many on here...dreams or not, I base it on the possible welfare of those who are not born yet. Cystic fibrosis, cancers, diabetes, definitely. My perspective.
Get used to others to not have the same opinions as you regarding having a disease that can possibly be passed on. I don't believe there are guarantees on that front yet.
It's not an outdated, discriminatory or otherwise...it's an obviously "new or shock to some perspective" and an opinion, and I'm entitled to disagree regarding children. Some people shouldn't have any based on a variety of reasons.
A right doesn't mean it should be.
I get the same response about
prednisone and other perspectives I have..depending on how personal people take them. You've made the best decision to not take pred for your own survival. Just because others say it's OK, doesn't mean it is.
