what's /lgbt/'s opinion about the whole "bugchasing" thing?
It's a normal and heathy habit that should be encouraged among gay people
It's not really even a 'thing', anybody who willingly infects themselves with HIV obviously has at least a personality disorder and is immediately ostracised by any self respecting homosexual. I think it's straight people that make it a bogeyman and post that same collage with the bug chaser forum posts that I've seen on 4chan for years.
I have the same opinion as I do about straight guys who like getting their balls crushed by women in stiletto heels. In that, I don't have much of an opinion about obscure harmful fetish porn beyond "ew".
The only evidence of it actually being real that I've ever seen is an efukt video, so I'm considering it to be essentially a myth, just one that's reinforced by the occasional crazy person.
I'm assuming the efukt clip is from the documentary called "The Gift." It was a 2003 documentary. If the ppl didn't exist and it was totally fake, then it would have been exposed by now.
If you want to know the possible "why" behind it, this guy offers some opinions based on minor research:
Probably most of the forum shit you see online about it is fantasy. Just like there are posts in forums about men wanting to castrate themselves. BUT... just like there was an incidence of two men who were castrating willing men and doing it in a small suburban home just outside of Asheville, NC in 2007, I'm sure that bug chasing/gift giving is very real and that some ppl practice it and there are some that even fetishize it. It's pretty stupid imo.
>long term closed relationship
If you read the article about, its one of the reasons for bug chasing. Long term relationship, one is infected; the other is not. The uninfected one shows his love and commitment by allowing himself to be infected.
It's a fictional fetish in the same vein as vore or giant women.
All of the stories are made up masturbation material for weirdos.
If you believe bugchasing actually exists IRL you're a credulous rube.
yes, all those people with biohazard tattoos are just roleplaying
the videos of people with those tattoos fucking with metal mesh condoms are totally staged, you see
we live in a world where people fuck animals, pretend to be children, and indulge in fetishes 24/7. you're the rube if you don't think this happens
It's gross, it's real, and it's only practiced by a very small retarded group of people.
Bugchasing/catching should be of no concern to anyone realistically though, other than talks of shutting off healthcare access for these people. In addition, we should be more focused on people who don't tell the truth about their HIV status, as it's not talked about enough.
Don't know why /pol/ feels the need to keep beating the "all gays are bugchasers" drum when we have real legitimate problems that can also affect straight people such as retards not disclosing their status.
