I'm Being an Asshat Again « Social Issues »

In the comments over here. Go see and judge for yourself.

If nothing else, I'm probably an asshat for distracting from an excellent topic of discussion in and of itself: Partner Notification for Those Diagnosed with STDs.

Go leave a comment more on target than mine and ignore my asshattedry, if you will/wish/can.

But you're such a nice asshat, Nathan..

Your comments were right on.

I concur with 'licious up there.

Yeah, but Jerry was right: I could have found a better way to put it.

...I am getting tired of political correctness and crap. Why are we so worried about offending when people are dying of a horrible disease like AIDS?

I agree, Nathan, you could have said it differently, but I don't think we are afraid of offending, rather I think we need to be compassionate in our speech concerning those who already are dealing with the disease. It is no longer a "gay" disease, although, I will not argue that homosexual activity greatly contributed to the spread of HIV. As for notifying, I am unsure what I think.....
