Quote from EdT
Unless things are very different here, or things have changed a lot since 2010, I'm afraid that medical stats do not show that: "Although MSM (Men having Sex with Men) represent about 4% of the male population in the United States, in 2010, MSM accounted for 78% of new HIV infections among males and 63% of all new infections." - Department of Health and Human Services, USA. Seems the UK is not so different: "As a result of the dramatic rise in new infections among gay men (and other men who have sex with men) over the last decade, one in twenty men who have sex with men (MSM) live with HIV in the UK. Sex between men accounted for around 48 percent of observed diagnoses in 2011" - Avert, International AIDS and HIV charity. SWo again 4% of the population make up 48% of the new infecions.



That suggests that you are in the MSM group you are 41 times more likely to contract HIV than someone not in that group.

Hacker: The statistics are irrefutable...
Humphrey: Statistics? You can prove anything with statistics.
Hacker: Even the truth?
Humphrey: Yes... No!

Blimey. So, is the rate of transmission higher in pensioners as well then?

Just incase you think this is usual right wing bluster of a reactionary paper, here is some left wing bluster from a reactionary paper

To the OP the issue us that the Adult Industry, this website etc are all made up of the general public.

Some people will refuse to work with a TG person (Certed or otherwise) as they erroneously believe that there is a greater risk. This is not the case if the person is properly tested and careful. (If someone is tested and certed then Gender is not an issue), They see you (even though you are certed) as too high a risk.

If someone says they won't work with you because of your other half ask why. If the person is genuinely misguided then once they know the facts and see your certs and if necessary your partners they will be ok.

Some will have a bias against TG people and those around them. (Even though they are in the adult industry to)

I do not know why this is the case but it is.

If the person is TG phobic, then they won't work with you, Nothing that you can say will change their minds. They are poor excuses for human beings. It may cost you work, but you are better not being around them.
