anonymous asked:

(rape tw) Can you explain why you don't think HIV+ people have a moral responsibility to tell potential partners their status, if that is indeed your position? I understand that if they have an undetectable viral load and they practice safer sex, the risk of transmission is very low, but it still exists, no? I'm just trying to understand. I have HPV and I feel guilty for not telling the man who raped me beforehand, and that's not even a potentially fatal illness, just an inconvenience. (1/2)

(2/2) I want to support HIV+ people and not make their lives harder, but I’m having a really hard time with this perspective from an ethical standpoint.

(anon sorry, i answered this but forgot it in my drafts)

anon, i’m not really sure where this is coming from since i haven’t posted about this in a while [since this came in before my other post got resurrected] but i’ll try to explain (and forgive me, this got so damn long but i’m quite swamped lately and have no time to edit)

i don’t think i’ve said that there’s no responsibility to disclose, and i wonder what made you think i did, but the main point i want to get across is that it doesn’t really matter what i think about the morality of nondisclosure in any given situation — what matters is whether i think it should be a serious crime. this is a separate question because the law isn’t about morality, in this case it should be about public health.

and these laws are a resounding failure from a public health perspective, especially since as written they penalize testing and usually completely fail to take into account the risk level of the activity (including condom use) or even whether transmission actually occurred (even when the charge is “criminal transmission”!). these laws were born out of stigma, not science or real ethics. but you don’t have to take my word for it; this is the accepted position among HIV/AIDS and sexual health advocacy organizations, and even the CDC is recommending that they be reviewed. i really recommend reading what these organizations have to say about it. from a quick search UNAIDS’s policy brief (pdf) seems pretty good and clear but there is much more out there.

i’m so sorry about what happened to you and i want to know that you’re not at fault at all. no rape survivor is at fault for their rape or for the consequences of the rape for the rapist. he chose to do that to you, and he accepted the risks that came with that. that is entirely on him!

i think a major problem with the debate about disclosure is that, as the UNAIDS brief says, it “places […] responsibility for HIV prevention exclusively on those already living with HIV and dilutes the public health message of shared responsibility for sexual health between sexual partners.” this applies to other STIs as well. we all have to take responsibility for our own sexual health, at least when it comes to acts we consented to.

even if it may seem to make sense on a moral level, placing the entire responsibility on people who know they’re positive for HIV or any other infection just doesn’t work. there will always be people who don’t know their status or can’t know their status for sure because they were exposed too recently. these people can’t disclose, yet if they are HIV+ they pose a much greater transmission risk than people who know they’re positive because they can’t possibly be accessing treatment, because transmission risk is highest in the acute infection stage when they’ve first contracted HIV, and because they’re less likely to be taking the additional safer sex precautions that they’d take if they knew.

there is still a profound stigma against people living with HIV and other STIs. when we’re influenced by this stigma, we’re likely to focus on finding someone to blame for transmission (or even the possibility of transmission). when we reject the stigma, we can focus on effective methods of prevention which involve helping everyone accurately judge their risk level and make informed choices to protect themselves.

you mention that safer sex with someone with an undetectable viral load is very low-risk (so low-risk, in fact, that i don’t think there’s ever been a documented case of transmission under these circumstances) but that any risk is too much. it’s fine if you feel that way; you set your own boundaries. but sex with someone who doesn’t know their status is much riskier. so is it morally permissible not to disclose to your partners that you don’t know your status? and should not disclosing that be a crime?

i don’t think most people think so, or they haven’t thought about it. to a lot of people, not knowing their status is normal, because their sexual choices are governed by assumptions: they assume that they are negative, for HIV, HSV, etc., and they assume that everyone they have sex with is negative, unless they say otherwise. they assume this partly because of lack of education, and partly because of stigma. we think of people with STIs as dirty, reckless, less than virtuous. we don’t want to think of ourselves or the people we’re intimate with that way. but of course, people with STIs are not those things — having an STI is an entirely morally neutral characteristic of a person. and these assumptions about ourselves and others aren’t sound. they are actually an obstacle to STI prevention.

so these debates trouble me because they obscure the fact that the best practice for everyone is to get tested regularly, disclose what you know about your status (including whether you know it!), and ask about your partner’s status, making it clear that it’s safe for them to be honest. and when we place all responsibility on people who know they’re positive, we validate our assumptions that everyone is negative, but we have to challenge those assumptions if we want to protect ourselves and each other. we have to acknowledge that when we decide to have sex based on the assumption that our partner must be negative, we are taking a risk. even in a world where everyone who knows they’re positive disclosed — and i believe most do — this would be a risk.

the sooner we can accept this and reject stigma, the sooner we can take steps toward more honest and open communication in our sexual lives and make healthy, fully informed choices, the sooner we can stop the spread of HIV.

I love writing and i really wanna write a klance fic but i haven't written in a while because i'm really insecure about my writing. I stop after like a sentence. Do you have any tips/motivation when trying to write. BTW it's a klance BAND au where keith is the lead singer. ALSO, I love OTI, can't wait for an update !

bruh i have a degree in music i am ALL ABOUT BAND AUS!!!!!!!!!!!!

In all honesty, it’s really hard to deal with insecurity regarding your writing. Even now, every time I post a chapter I have this overwhelming urge to delete it. That oneshot I posted a week or so ago was even worst - I was like “THIS IS IT. IM DONE. THIS IS WHERE PEOPLE REALIZE THEY WERE ALL FOOLED INTO THINKING I’M A DECENT WRITER”. Tbh I think insecurity and doubt in your skill is a bit of an intrinsic trait for anyone who makes art. 

The only advice I have is to know that your art, no matter its quality, is valid and important. All art is important, it’s honestly one of the few things that redeem the human race imo. Make art because you want to, not for any other reasons. You’ll have to tough through a lot of self doubt and self confidence problems but I can assure you that that’s normal (I literally do it every time I sit down to write). If you want to make art you just have to make it, ignore the angry screaming of your mind telling you you aren’t good enough because they’re fucking wrong dude. 

That’s the best I’ve got. You aren’t alone in it, though. Being an artist of any kind is hard but it’s such an important job. 

hello friends and fellow psis!

so I’m just writing this to let you know that, for the time being, my darkest minds behind the scenes posting will be very minimal due to copyright issues that have risen. Of course, I will still be on tumblr, posting edits and text posts about my emotional tendencies, reblogging as I do, and hanging out in my messages if anyone wants to talk!! I’m just sorting some things out, but I just thought I’d let everyone know that I’m still kickin!

Hm, well, the hive of scum and villainy is currently on the East Coast, so … maybe Jakku? In either case, I retract my rebuke against Arizona. I have nothing but respect for committed cosplayers :P

*sobbing*

I just really love Vetra <3

I tried so hard to write, edit and post this stucky x reader one shot I got inspiration for today. But the entire time I’ve been writing I have had the most horrific back, chest, stomach and just all over. The worst pain I have ever felt, to the point where I was almost considering letting my parents take me to hospital. So no stucky x reader tonight guys, I’m sorry. I’ll try and finish it by the weekend for you all because I really want to write this and share it with you all, but all I’ve been doing between writing is just curling up in a ball and crying because of the pain.  

So I told some of you that I was gonna post some more JakexMC fanfiction a couple of days ago, and I feel absolutely terrible for not having done so yet. I’m trying my best to finish and post at least one, but I’ve just had a really bad week, and have had a hard time focusing when I’m trying to write, so I’ve ended up writing part of a really sad fic instead of the happy ones I promised. Like I’ve been experiencing one bad thing after another, and now my depression has kicked in, so I’m struggling a little bit, anf I feel like I’m one more bad thing away from bawling my eyes out, and it just really sucks. Anyway, to those waiting, I just wanted to say that I’m really sorry about not posting anything yet, and that I’m aiming for getting something posted either tonight or tomorrow. I also just wanted to say that I hope you’re all having a lovely day/night, wherever you are, and that I really love this fandom. I can’t wait to see what everyone else is up to this week!

okay so I know there are fics with Javert being Enjolras’s strict cop dad who’s just trying to not have his angry rebellious son strangle him in the night BUT CAN WE TALK ABOUT JAVERT BEING GRANTAIRE’S DAD FOR A MOMENT? LIKE, JAVERT JUST DOESN’T KNOW HOW TO HANDLE GRANTAIRE AND NOT BECAUSE HE’S REBELLIOUS ITS BECAUSE HE JUST PLAIN OUT CAN’T FIGURE HIM OUT? LIKE GRANTAIRE’S JUST TOO CHILL TO BE PUNISHED OR DISCIPLINED AND HE GETS DECENT GRADES AND SURE HE DRINKS ALL OF JAVERTS GOOD LIQUOR BUT JAVERT CAN NEVER CATCH HIM IN THE ACT AND JAVERT IS SO CONFUSED? THEIR RELATIONSHIP ISN’T EVEN BAD, IT’S JUST JAVERT TRYING REALLY HARD TO BE A GOOD DAD AND RAISE GRANTAIRE RIGHT AND GRANTAIRE NOT KNOWING HOW TO RESPOND TO IT. AND ALSO, LIKE HE NOTICES GRANTAIRE SMILING A LOT MORE AND DRINKING LESS AND HE FINDS OUT THAT HE GOT A BOYFRIEND AND JAVERT PRESUMES IT’S THAT NICE PROUVAIRE BOY SINCE R’S BEEN SPENDING SO MUCH TIME WITH HIM, BUT LITTLE WAS HE EXPECTING TO COME HOME ONE DAY AND FIND HIS DARLING SON NECKING WITH ENJOLRAS, THE SOCIALIST RIOT LEADER WHO’S CONSTANTLY IN AND OUT OF THE HOLDING BLOCK?! AND THEY PROCEED TO HAVE THE MOST AWKWARD, TENSE FAMILY DINNER EVER, WITH R LAUGHING HIS ASS OFF THE WHOLE TIME AND JAVERT AND ENJOLRAS GLARING AT EACH OTHER OH MY GOD GIVE ME DAD!JAVERT PLEASE

I really do forget that people who aren’t lesbians don’t always know about concepts like compulsory heterosexuality and them saying molly can’t be a lesbian because she’s been attracted to men isn’t an attack on lesbians (like me) who did have a hard time figuring out their feelings towards men but. it sure feels like one sometimes.

my team, we saw it early on. back when we were on one of those first scouts, finding out what was around here. there was a camp at the bottom. the people they must have blocked one of the exists with one of those trucks back when everything started to go bad. they didn’t make it, they were all roamers. maybe a dozen of them.
and no ones been back since?
dc… every time we’re scavanging, theyre all in other directions. and i never really felt like having a picnic next to the camp that ate itself.

You know what’s great? People who understand that “strong female characters” come in several forms. A “girl” who compromises often can be just as strong as a “bitch” who doesn’t bend to anyone ever. Female characters don’t have to be liked or disliked to be considered strong. A soft-spoken, unsure heroine can be just as compelling as her self-assured, vocal counterpart. A female character doesn’t have to be an asshole, she doesn’t have to be an angel. She doesn’t have to anything except strong in some way to be a strong character. The word strong has more than one meaning. I’m tired of the “strong female character” having to be one thing and one thing only.

In addition, one can dislike a character and still respect them. People need to stop confusing dislike for a character as viewing them as lesser. It’s entirely possible for someone to hate a female character (or any character, for that matter) and still see their strength and respect it. Just because it doesn’t happen often doesn’t mean it can’t happen at all.

i’m just minding my own business going through tumblr when all of a sudden i see that kim kardashian and taylor swift are trending. i go ahead and check out the tags and i start reading all the posts and i mean i don’t keep up with them nor do i have any clue what is going on. but…like…why am i having such a good time? why am i laying down in the dark softly chuckling to myself?? i really feel like i’ve made a grave error in judgement.

So they’ve lined it up so we saw Regina as the one on the moral high ground a couple of episodes ago and now we’ve also seen that with Hook. Other than the last dark one, they’re easily the two most morally grey characters on the show (Hook’s not even really gray), and Emma just zoomed right past them. What she did to Hook was about seeing her going dark. She’s becoming more selfish. Rumple put his own wishes before those of the people close to him when he was the dark one too, and as we saw, the moment she put her own selfish wishes above the (for once) very pure dying wish of someone close to her, she went full on dark.

Now, if we think about what this means for the rest of the 5A, I think it would be naive to think that Hook isn’t going to play a major role. He is. What Emma did was an unforgivable offense and they’re going to spend a lot of time on him dealing with that before the midseason finale, and we’re just going to have to tough it out. The person he trusted to make him a better person turned around and made him into the thing he hated most and he should be having some complex emotions about that, so for once, it doesn’t seem like frivolous manpain. Maybe it won’t be so bad. Maybe if we’re lucky, we’ll even get some commentary about it being wrong to give another person the responsibility of keeping you “good.”

But I also think this is Hook going out with a bang. I think this will lead them into the underworld to save him, and once they get there, they’ll realize that he can’t be saved. They’ve been pounding into the ground for years that dead is dead, and I know they like to retcon things, but there’s a difference between “oops we forgot to mention that Ruby went back the Enchanted Forest” and “oops it turns out the entire premise of our show was wrong.” Emma and Hook will get closure and Hook will die a “hero,” and we’ll have to deal with that, but ultimately, they’ll walk back out of the underworld without him. Maybe Hook even knows that beforehand. Maybe he’s just tricking them into delivering his body back to his soul. Personally, I might be interested in seeing that plot. 

What I’m getting at here is the very real possibility that this episode marks the permanent end of CS. 

And OQ has sort of been on its way out for a while. We have Robin referring to the baby as his instead of theirs, and it’s got to be only a matter of time before Regina realizes that being in this very fucked up situation is making her a worse person. Maybe that’s why they focused so heavily on her mistreating a helpless Zelena. If I had to chose a theme for this season, it would be being in a relationship that makes you a worse person, and in that way, CS and OQ parallel each other. 

Regina also still hasn’t really had a chance to be the savior after they spent an entire episode establishing that. It’s not a leap to think that she is still the person who is meant to save Emma, presumably through an act of true love, and we know that can’t happen for a while if Emma is slated to be the dark one all season. If SQ is happening, I think it will start with the act of true love that breaks the curse. I don’t think they’re going to get together before that, so maybe what we’re seeing really is laying the groundwork. It’s possible to see it that way. They’ve been hitting the gay metaphors hard like, every other episode, and I’m having a hard time believing that’s unintentional, and you all know I think Emma lied to Hook’s face about what her secret was. Unless we’re to believe that the ten minutes Mulan and Ruby spent onscreen together was “planting the seeds,” Swan Queen is still the only viable option.

It’s still not impossible. That’s what I’m trying to say.
