A Canadian man , Steven Paul Boone who authorities named and identified in public reports as a sexually transmitting hazard to your health, has seen charges against him upgraded. To attempted murder. Boone was arrested in May after an 18-year-old man said he contracted an “infectious disease” after having unprotected sex multiple times with Boone and while Boone was awaiting trial additional men came forward following health officials’ open call to Boone’s sex partners. Boone also faces charges of administering a “noxious substance” (yep, HIV). Which brings Boone’s grand total of counts against him to 31.
Boone who knew that he was HIV+ and aggressively sought sex partners hid the information and never divulged his status. (Weather he was asked and lied about it is unclear at this time.) The allegations suggest the list of Boone’s potential victims could date back more than a year.
Its truly a disturbing story, spreading an infectious disease to people unaware, esp HIV/AIDS (Which, while chronic, still has no cure and still causes death), is an absolutely disgusting thing to do. But some of the responsibilty does fall back onto those who had the unprotected sex with Boone for they choose for themselves to act with careless disregard to their own protection. And, how can a fair judgement be made when the so-called victims willingly engage in unsafe-sex? Certainly if they had unprotected sex with Boone, it is reasonable to doubt whether or not they had unprotected sex with others.
Remember AIDS is not gone. AIDS is not cureable.
It is everyones responsibilty who is involved in a sex act to protect themseleves. Weather it be with someone you meet through a friend or meet at a bathhouse. Sex is not a dirty thing and can be lots of fun.
But in the end it is up to YOU to be responsible for your own safety.
