HIV: Discuss

I meant to post these ages ago, since I thought that some of you who don't customarily (or ever) read Savage Love might find these columns interesting. Instead of concerning the customary questions Dan Savage fields (such as how-do-I-convince-my-girlfriend-to-dress-me-in-diapers-and-spank-me?), they tackle the much more serious problem of how to deal with HIV positive individuals who knowingly infect others. I think Savage has a very good idea, which involves making the knowing infector foot half the medical bills for the unknowing infectee. Personally, I'm in favor of prosecution, too. Here and here are some follow-up responses (the second link is more informative, if you don't want to bother reading both).
