I hadn’t thought of it like that, Robyn Jane, but you have an excellent point. I wrote the column hoping to save myself time and energy in the future by having something I could link to. Because AIDS phobic people really do sap a lot of my time and energy. I had three long email and FaceBook messenger threads last week with AIDS-phobic people, when it finally occurred to me that I was wasting my time.

They already had information. Nothing I could say was going to help them.

I wonder how true that is of Kool Aid drinkers?
