It was necessary for a teachable moment.
Agreed.. it just hurts that I was a teen then watching this and now as an adult it’s still happening even with education and modern medicine
Upset? This was a great teachable moment !
Upset Because its still happening to those living with HIV…
I once worked at a job where on my first week an employee told me, “see that guy over there? If he gets hurt, don’t help him because he is HIV positive!” It took all my power not to molly whop her ass and tell her instead to educate herself because that’s not how HIV works.
Smh that’s terrible
Ppl really act like this?!
I think this scene was appropriate for the time. There wasn’t a such thing as undetectable then, nor were people as educated as they are now. The episode did a good job of acknowledging the fear then & using it as a teachable moment. We can’t use todays lenses to judge the past.
All of this & especially the ending of what you said…having a retroactive mindset truly doesn’t help… most ART treatments are one pill a day and U = U is now broadcasted and has a huge campaign! You’re right… my point on the post is that this type of treatment continues.. pic.twitter.com/HcLdnvQScI
