As per the article that was published yesterday on the Saturday Daily, I came to realise that stigma is at its peak. The kind of reaction I saw on all the platforms showed the kind of perception that our society has towards HIV and people living with HIV.
People have a stigma mentality such that they rush to make utterances or moves without a second thought. Such ill minds are laying ground for stigma to thrive and make our people go through a lot of suffering. We should avoid these at all cost.
We need to have a society where people interact and live freely irrespective of HIV status. Remember, you might not be infected but still be affected in a way.
Still on the same newspaper, I realised people commented as per the heading and not the content. I am sure, even now, that if they go through it line by line they will be compelled to withdraw their sentiments.
People need to be rational in their moves; don't do what might haunt you. No one gets infected by choice and neither does anyone wish to be infected.
