What The Instructor Said To The Class
Context: What I Can’t Say In Class
So, that idiot who’s in a course on AIDS that says condoms wreck sex is potentially a part of a group of AIDS denialists who have joined the course to interfere with the learning, discussion and sharing that is happen.
A few hours ago I got a mass email from the instructor sharing with us that she noticed that an individual was becoming verbally abusive to other students by calling them names and such so she stepped in and banned this person from posting (not the guy who I spoke with). This individual then hunted down the professors email and sent her an email accusing her of silencing him in regards to the questions he wanted answered by our guest speaker. He said that she’ll have to shut the course down before he stops. Our instructor encourages us to not communicate with these bullies and trolls who seem to be a group of HIV/AIDS denialists who want to hijack the course.
Why I think the condom guy is a part of this group is because of another rude and misinformed comment I say him make to another student in regards to her 7 year old niece who has HIV (contracted at birth). Something along the lines of doctors lying about it just to get her into the pediatric medical system.
But, you may be wonder what HIV/AIDS denialism is? It was a group of people who believe that scientists are lying about where AIDS comes from. Some believe that HIV does not exist or that it is not a big deal and does not cause AIDS. They also do not believe that HIV or AIDS treatments work. I’m sure you can see why these attitudes are horribly problematic! Some of these denialists are HIV+ for have AIDS themselves.
This always happens, you end up in a course with fools who just want to spew their disgusting, counter productive and oppressive, false views.
I reported condom man for his comment about the student’s niece.
