NEWSFLASH: HIV Classified as Disability


I dont know if I will be happy or not about this. Recently the US Equal Employement Commission classified HIV as disability. I haven't heard any comments yet as this is very new and fresh. We'll probably hear more about this soon.


IMHO, I think this will just add up to the stigma that HIV+ men and women experience right now. I mean if they consider this a disability they might as well also consider cancer or diabetes a disability. I guess this should be hardly thought off before throwing it out in the band wagon.

Hello there. You should be happy. If this is true that HIV is considered a disability, then this will be covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. The most important part of this is to avoid discrimination on job hiring, public services and entities, etc. and at the same time an assurance of a confidential medical record.

US federal gov't. and its states have strict statutes on civil and human rights.

It may change your dating aspect in life, but it may even be for the better. And one of most effective way to have a nice date according to the psychologist is joining a club, maybe Std Dating site , numbers of real and active members to have a talk and for a potential dating and it will protect your privacy very well!
