TR Knight: We All Have AIDS

Grey’s Anatomy actor T.R. Knight and young love Mark Cornelsen do a bit of house hunting together in The Hollywood Hills on Sunday.

Cornelsen wore a “WE ALL HAVE AIDS” t-shirt, which is a call to end HIV/AIDS stigma. It is a powerful display of the unity and solidarity we all share with the 40 million men, women, and children living with HIV/AIDS around the world.

Limited edition WE ALL HAVE AIDS T-shirts have been sold at all Barney’s, Theory, Scoop, Louis of Boston and Kenneth Cole New York stores in the U.S., Holt Renfrew in Canada and Selfridges in London.

T.R. just turned 35 this past Wednesday. HAPPY BELATED, MR. KNIGHT!

AIDs is indeed everyone’s problem. All of us can get infected, but it doesn’t mean that WE ALL HAVE AIDS. The slogan puts AIDS at the same level with influenza, and that is IGNORANT!!! If TR wants to have people’s attention on AIDS, then the hell he must do it better. We all must do it better!

No, we don’t all have AIDS. I don’t sleep around for starters. I don’t go to sleazy bath-houses or cubicles to have sex with 10 strangers in one night. I always talk to my prospective partner and make sure I do not engage in anything overly intimate on the first meeting. Common sense, really.

actually… yeah, we DO all have AIDS. And in the eyes of society that can be taken many various ways. Aside from the fact that AIDS itself, is a worldwide epidemic that still kills thousands each year; it also knows no prejudice… that is, in its literal form. it doesn’t know race. It doesn’t know gender or sexual orientation. It doesn’t know age. All it DOES know is that it lives and breathes… in one form or another, in almost every community throughout the world. We all talk about it, and in the last 30 years, it has been in every human’s vocabulary. It’s our problem because it EXISTS in our communities— infecting our friends, family menbers, and the global community of which we all are a part.

But AIDS has another side too. A stigma. It’s a fear, a shame, and a denial that each of us face when we see someone who has it, or in just knowing that it’s around. And you know something? We all face “stigma” in our lives— flaws about us that not only make us individuals, but also flaws that create idiosyncrises about us that others may— or may not, like— or don’t understand becasue it’s foreign to what we know or experience.

If all of you take the time to really look at this picture posted of Mark and TR, it’s carrying an underlined message that I really don’t think that anyone is seeing as of yet. The T-Shirt speaks for itself, and if look closely, you will see the prejudice behind what was once thought to be the CAUSE and ONLY “person” to be affected by tis deadly disease—- A GAY MAN. That’s the “stigma” behind this photo, isn’t it?

Think about it… Many people will look at this the way they did in 1978 when the first traces of AIDS began to occur in the US— “all gay MEN have AIDS”. Others are looking at it as a blow to their personal lives— an accusation stating that YOU have AIDS (specifically YOU).

But remember something… all of us like to claim intelligence, and if you look at all the senarios I have just given, you will see that the incorporation of all the stigmas we associate with this deadly disease can be directed at ANYONE—- ANY PERSON or group of people. It’s because NO ONE is immune.

Remove the stigma. Face the responsibility.

I love TR!

All you haters need to get a life!

dwayne wolfe— pennsylvania: you are really annoying and you should just give up and get off the message boards. Get out of your house and do something that isn’t a waste of time.

annoyed—- I think you should spend some time sweeping your own trash before you worry about what’s going on with mine. The truth is that some of us, unlike you, have an incredible ability to multi-task AND keep 55 hours of employment going with excellence. Annoyed? You haven’t even sampled what my abilities are, and furthermore, if you could bring yourself to the table and truthful, you would find the world is a better place than the life you lead “lurking in the shadows”. “Witch hunts” are for the faint of heart— revealing the underlined truth is the reward I seek for the public. We’ll see what Father Time discovers—- but in the meantime, check your baggage, you may want to lighten your load, you know?

Have a great day, Sunshine!! ;-)

oh yeah… and I forgot to mention. I write under various names… so you may wish to monitor thing a bit closer— since I seem to be of interest to you. :D

LOL!! It’s funny how one guy, at the flick of a finger, can knock an entire family of bigots flat on their asses! You go, man!

Why do people feel like they have a right to comment on their relationship just because there’s an age difference? They’re both adults, they both care about each other. Your age is just a number. If they’re happy, that’s all that matters. People need to stop being rude. Although I’m guessing it’s americans that think their relationship is ‘creepy’ so it doesn’t suprise me. You’re all just proving that most Americans are dumb.

Homosexuality, to my understanding, is a hormone imbalance which cannot be controlled or changed, the choice to act upon may be controlled however to an extent. It is something you are born into, something created by god. Evidence for this is shown in nature, where, Gay animals exist and has been well documented . Gay animals are also a creation of God, and therefore natural, there is nothing synthetic about them and also have no choice in the way they are, and also no mental ability to stop it.

AIDS IS EVERYONES DISEASE!.

Sure it is preventable for those that acquire it through unprotected sex or needle sharing…. but WE ALL HAVE UNPROTECTED SEX. There are enough babies born in the world every day as proof!
Also, a number of people in the world have acquired the virus from their mothers- during childbirth.
And HIV is not a gay disease… african american women are the fastest growing population. Many of these girls are not ***** or on drugs- they just make the mistake of falling in love with the wrong guy.
I think an infectious disease that is affecting over 50 million people in the world is all of our problem.
The stigma of HIV/AIDS prevents people from getting tested, from getting the medical care that they need to live, and from getting support from their family in friends- as many tend to point fingers.

I applaud the T-shirt.

I would like to have one myself for my next World AIDS day celebration.

God works in mysterious ways….. if you think AIDS is not your problem…. maybe someday it will be.
