* AIDS : That way madness lies.

(link to YDN article)

They Have a Dream


I doubt this noble end can be reached, for a number of highly explosive reasons.
AIDS is mixed in with a basket of snakes: Male dominance of women; homophobia; promiscuity; the sex trade; religious intolerance and superstition; power; irrationality; economics; ignorance.
I stared directly into that abyss at Yale with 60 Minutes [] in 1984 after making myself universally hated by those who did not want the heterosexual connection to AIDS transmission revealed. I decided I had risked enough, and bowed out of AIDS activism.
Oh, that way madness lies; let me shun that. Lear, King Lear, Act 3 scene 4
