Why prejudice against AIDS patients

December 2, 2006 11:30am CST
all over the world, AIDS is a disease thats spreading its poisonous roots. but whats maybe even more disturbing is the prejudice that society usually attaches to AIDS patients. AIDS is a social stigma now. isnt this a bit harsh for the people who know they have only little time left to live? shouldnt we all support these people and give them reason to live the remainder of their life happily? your thoughts.

I think the folks who are prejudice against AIDS patients are just uneducated, thats all! It is like racism. People who are racists against another ethnic background of people are just unintellectual, uneducated, and scared.Some people think touching AIDS patients will infect them too, but they just need to get their facts straight about the disease itself and how it spreads.

it is a social stigma...but it is better than before people are aware of how it spreads and they take actions in that way. people dont treat AIDS patient like untouchables anymore. there is a great amount of danger but they are not untouchables. :)
