Okay Pit monkeys I have a question for you guys.
What do you think would be worse, being born with HIV/AIDS, or contracting it from a sexual partner?

I would have to say that being born with it is worse because there's nothing that you can do about it. You just have it.

I'll have a poll up in a minute.

But you can't do anything about it once you've contracted it either...
I'd say contracting it from having sex, because then it's at least partially your own fault.


But getting it from birth means that you had nothing to do with it, and you're doomed to a lifetime of suffering because of something that was completely out of your control.

Well seeing how i'll never contract it from a sexual partner, i'll have to go with being born with AIDS/HIV.

It's hard to say which is worse because you're comparing AIDS to AIDS.

I voted "birth" but now that I think about it, getting it via sex is worse. You were healthy, and it could have been prevented, but you dun goofed. At least when you're born with it, you don't have as much to lose.

EDIT: On the other hand, if you get it from sex, then at least you got to have sex. If you're born with AIDS, no sex for you.

I would rather have it from sex. Either way, you will have it, So I guess it's better to obtain from having sex if you had to choose. But maybe that person didn't know they had AIDS? And then they feel guilty and commit suicide? Maybe I read too much into this pointless and strange question?

EDIT: yeah, I have no real answer I guess. I just don't know.

If you got it from sex, well, at least you got something out of it.

Oh my god the ignorance.

You can have sex if you have AIDS. If you conracted it from birth, it'd be treated right away. but y'know, less life expectancy. If you catch it from a partner, it could go untreated for however long.

They're both as bad as each other. It'll still kill you. AIDS is AIDS.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.


I like my women how I like my guitars. Curvy and like it when I finger them.

Birth.

If you get it from sex, it's your own damn vault.

If you're born with it, chances are that you find out early in life, and it becomes just a part of your life before you reach your adult life. To find out DURING your adult life that you have it seems like it would be a more troubling realization, and it would probably spark more acts of fear, anger, and panic before acceptance occurs, if it even does.

I know that. What I meant is what would be harder for you. Having AIDS from birth means that it's not your fault, and that you have to suffer because of someone else made a mistake, whereas when you get it from a sexual partner it is your fault. So while AIDS is AIDS no matter what way you look at it, I still think it's worth thinking about.

Contracting it from a partner. You'll also have to live with the guilt that your horniness basically killed you.
EDIT: Also, if you were born with it you'd probably grow up learning to accept it.

This thread has made me wonder why UG doesn't have a which would you rather thread

OT: I don't know. Both would suck immensely. I think sex because then you have to explain to people what happened, and that would be difficult.

AIDS is bad no matter what.

How you get it is irrelevant.

Definitely from birth. If you're not specifying at what age you get it from sex, you could have many healthy fun-filled years first.
