About Me: Male, 31, Columbus, OH, member since Dec 2008
I am a graduate of Ohio State University, having earned a Bachelor of Science in economics with a minor focus on Women's, Gender, and Sexuality studies.
I live in Columbus, Ohio, where the HIV infection rate has actually risen in recent years, especially among young gay males. It's very worrisome, as young people seem to be becoming more apathetic about HIV. The first step is to make sure that people understand how to protect themselves, which is a job that is never done. I encounter young men and women everyday who do not even understand how to practice safe sex.
If you have any questions about HIV or want to share your anxieties and worries (I've had mine), feel free to message me. Or if you have questions about monetary policy (not sure that anyone particularly cares about the subject), you can ask me those too!
Side note: If you are interested in the scientific journals that support the evidentiary claims that experts like Teak make, please check the JAMA site (Journal of the American Medical Association) and search things like "oral sex HIV" or "HIV transmission"
