Hi peeps! How are you, my spongy, little yellow friends?
This is just a quick intro to my upcoming series on HIV/AIDS and other STDs (which of course stands for Shouldna Touched Dat). It consists of the link to my Oasis interview with Jeff from about two years ago, which has a significant section about how HIV/AIDS has impacted my own life over the years, and how my stupidity nearly snuffed me. I'll probably be going over some of the same points again in the later posts, but this is a good place to get a head start learning where I'm coming from on this and some other issues.
Here's the link:
CAUTION: If you are offended by occasionally frank and explicit educational materials...GET OVER IT!!!
You need to know this stuff. Just blush and giggle self-consciously at the appropriate situations as they arise (now that, I swear, was unintentional). If for no other reason, you should at least tune in for the titillation factor. You won't find much in this interview, but I've got some pointers that require going into a certain level of detail later on. Plus I want to set an example for you so you won't be embarassed to ask pointed questions (don't go there).
Now I'm joking to some extent. It won't be all that bawdy, but as you may have already discerned, I am a pioneer of that new and highly controversial teaching method known as "Telling Kids the Truth". I feel no shame or guilt about that whatsoever. Just don't tell your parents.
