HIV positive Woman who had Sex with 20 men

A 19 year old woman had sex with 20 men without telling them of her infection with HIV. South Korean police detained the woman from the Southern part of Busan. It is reported on Sowetan Newspaper that she tested positive in February 2010 and had since had sex with 20 men she met online. It took the courageous father according to the reports to report his daughter to the police. She was said to have been receiving 100,00 won (90 dollers, R700) from each man in return for having sex at motels. The court in Busan rejected a request from police to issue a warrant of arrest, saying she could instead be sent to hospital for treatment.

What makes this woman's act a serious crime is her "intension", the intension to kill, to cause body harm. The young woman in question knew quite well what she was doing, at least the court should have issued a warrant of arrest. What message is the court conveying to other HIV infected individuals who are also contemplating to do the same? A deliberate infection of other people with HIV/AIDS is tantamount to murder. Now it means 20 men are positive, 20 wives infected and perhaps another 20 mistresses in danger.

Well, I also blame the victims who go around sleeping with total strangers possibly without condom; they have brought it upon themselves. People should make out that when you are HIV positive you can still live another 30 years if you are taking treatment. It's not the end of the world. Online dating can be very dangerous sometimes if you do not execise caution.

Is Alcohol a Problem?

I grew up in the church going family but that's not the reason I do not drink. Like in every family or organisation, there is always a loose canon and in this case my uncle is one. He is a heavy drinker, let me say an alcohol abuser. At his 40's he does not have a steady relationship let alone a nuclear family or anything valuable you can point at, yet he is working a better job. These are some of the things that made me not to have interes in intoxicating my self when I was young, but it also made me to see the pros and cons of alcohol. Afterwards, I realised that there are people out there who drink alcohol but are good parents and most importantly good citizens of this country.

I do not drink but I can not declare that alcohol is indeed a problem, people are. Alcohol is not the source of many societal problems; these problems also exist in cultures that do not drink any way, the problem is the abuse of it thereof. According to the research 50% of people who die on the road in South Africa have blood alcohol concentration above 0.05 gram per 100 milliliters ( An estimated 5.7 million people were living with HIV/AIDS in South Africa in 2009 more than any country. It is belived that in 2008 over 250,00 South Africans died of Aids ( These are the two main things that are rapidly killing our beloved families and friends; hence it is inconceivable that sex and alcohol be banned. Alcohol runs many components of society, economic, religion, you name them. Otherwise we will have to ban everything because there is nothing in this life that doesn't have side effects. Everybody knows that if they engage in sexual activities without condom or drive in the influence of any intoxication there consequences. Accordingly, it is all about responsibility, behavioral change and valuing yourself.

This article is being published just one month before christmas holidays. Those who drink let them drink responsibly, one would be relieved to see death toll declining this year. It is a reality; if you are not drinking responsibly you will get divorced, addicted, accidents, beaten up and so on.
