It's a very good podcast. Literally, fucking Jackson killed me with the sword the other day for no reason, after our adventure looking for an a chant apple. It was so did it to show off the what's it called? The name, the name, the name. They what it was very unexpected. You know what else is unexpected? What your mom?

The other night I had like six people on my stream and it was the best note of my life. People were talking in the chat. Somebody actually offered to do graphic design for my stream. It was really interesting. Ill deal your money, I know. I think they charge, but that's fine, you know, like, if I can afford it, I will. I can't, so I won't. Okay, we have it narrated. You have two dollars for McDonald's about this. So heads up everyone, if you enjoy minecraft, if you enjoy some lower streams, we... you covered. As there is a sober called smthree, either two goals, one or minus when it was too I'm not quite sure. I always called it as m three minus when it goes too, because it's the second season, so do equally, you know. But some people find sim three minus two egos want, which makes it no sense. In my head. I can check like the server. No, it's it, because it's like we just call the discode sm three and anyway, it doesn't it doesn't matter. But you were doing there's some events happening on there. If you want a closeup on what's happening with the events, I mean to force give you the twitch channels of the people who are currently really involved in it, which is twitch TV, Goblin, underscore, underscore, which, which is a lovely sumone. Hello, we have twitch TV's last Moss Raven, who is someone who's not here but is part of this law very depinitely, and push r TV, last orange. I just go frog thirteen. We also have someone who's kind of get into the law. The triche channel is mimt, M im MIT, but I couldn't find exactly so I'm going to find it later maybe, and then, if you just want to check out the SM three, here are some people who aren't exactly part of the law yet, but you can always watch their channels. And the you have twitch TV at a, add a ax bones or add x bones. We just call them bones. And then, of course, we have our lovely twitch TV s ECO Kelly, who is a load and save. You're amen. We Love, we love. Also, I may not. Yeah, Oh wait, no, there's one more more than actually forgot about. Doesn't scream a lot? Yeah, and act like, can I ask what exactly is SM three? You know how an SMP is, so my player, smthree, is meant to kind of reublicly that in this ens, because smpsmthree. It's just like a survival minecraft server with a bunch of people on it. Oh, okay, and sometimes we do fun shit, like I set up his Christmas tree. Also, it's bad. It's a three minus two equals one. By the way, I think that's dumb. I'M KINDA SM THREE MINS TO MINUS ONE ECUS to. Okay, but I'm just saying that's what it is. No, it's not twitch. Shut and then, of course you're so someone who kind of make it into a little which is twitch TV slash your radio, which is you are Oh, idea, and you can check him out, because he also might do some little I know know if he's doaming it, but you know he's mean. He's there, he's not, and you have to be nice to him. What what that's a true question. Someone's actually nice to a lot of people. Never, I'm not nice to anyone. Don't tell people that I am. You're actually quite nice always. So, you know the pig stuffed animal? I got it superstore. Or put a flower ground on him? Yeah, I put good oh my God, there's two dogs that are running past my window right now. They are gorgeous. I Love Them. I love that so much. You know what you do when you put flower crowns on dogs? What you make gay men who got eight anyway, what the fuck that was? Because like mental dog, flowers rounds again. You try that now. Was No, we worse. Actually, don't know problem. That wasn't the worse, but it was definitely there. Dogs equal men, right, yeah, flower crowns equal queer, if you're fun with them. Yes, they do. What happens when you put them together? You are men who've got eight. What the fuck? Why did they immediately get AIDS? You know discrimination. This is a...

...quick content warning. We will be talking about the eight epidemic. If that is something and trigg you, anybody stis are going to trig you in up tone out. There's some other episodes you can watch. I recommend the Menstrual Cycle. I'm sorry. Actually, wait, good episode. No, nobody doesn't walk, because it's really just music the entire time, a scary stories. That's what you should go. Oh yeah, go watch our sterey story stories are on. It's much better than that and not as scary. Anyway. Moving on, let's get to the topic. Okay, Buddy, yeah, Yo, sorry. In light of the omicron variant of covid nineteen virus, BARF hated, today we're going to be talking about the AIDS epidemic in terms of how social aspects were affected from members of the LGBTQ plus community. Oh No, I just added that, I know, but I had to write it in any ways. Okay, we're talking about the AIDS epidemic because of the speculation that has been brought up as a result of how the omicron variant originated. Basically, because of the specific mutation of the omicron variant, scientists believe that the variant may have emerged from someone with a prolonged and possibly untreated case of HIV AIDS. Biggest takeaway from this episode is that anyone who has HIV, your AIDS, has been associated with HIV slash AIDS, such as Africans or the LGBTQ pliss community are victims and should not be discriminated against. They have anness pesties, leave them alone. Yeah, literally, starting off, Human Immune Deficiency Virus, HIV, is a virus that attacks the body's immune system, leaving it extremely vulnerable and immunocompromised, and often lead into acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome AIDS. If untreated, HIV aid severely weakens the body's immune system, and people who which ate with wit and people with HIV aid are extremely perceptible hum infections if they are not managing their HIV AIDS the proper treats. Although HIV AIDS cases have been recorded during the S, it wasn't until in nineteen eighty one until it was classified as an epic off I should know how to say this. What we've been in pandemic for three years now. It was until in nineteen eighty one that it was classified as an epidemic. The first official official with Hu mongers mutation marks. There Casey, says, the one who keeps having static come through from out Mike. Listen, it's my hair, I'm hot. Then put your hair out of the MIC. Bestie. It literally is. I think it's actually both you and avery. You're both. I think you're both acclready static at the same time, which I think is kind of funny. Swag swags, rag swag. Anyway, the first official case with big cutation marks in America was on June fifth one thousand nineteen eighty one, when five young men. We should make Ba that these were like young men, all active homosexuals. That would just it makes me want to die. Just called him Qui it really do. It's like active homo sex. What's well, I guess an inactive homosexual would be, you know, an a sexual homosexual, me or in the closet. Yeah, anyway, in three different hospitals across Los Ngeance, come June thought,...

...twenty six cases had been found in homosexual men in New York and California. December nine eighty two was the force suspected instance of HIV being transmitted via blood trumfusion when an infant was showing symptoms. By the way, that was no one's fault. We should make sure that's said. No one knew what the fuck was happening. Yeah, don't blame the Porson whose blood it was. Don't blame the north. Don't. I don't know why you'd blame the infant, but don't. Don't. Don't blame these people. They all except for maybe the Norse, but she had no idea. Or the DOC, they had no idea. Leave them alone. Well, if, if it wasn't known what it was, they couldn't have tested for it. Yeah, so, exactly exactly. They're not victims, but they didn't know. And then the other two people are victims of an illness. Leave everyone alone. It happens seven days later, though, a total of twenty two cases and infants with a force instance of crushing with her HIV and AIDS, or AIDS could be transferred pain penetraily pared natally and a Narrataly. So that would be like if when the mother has HIV AIDS and then they give birth and then the baby ends up contracting HIV AIDS from the mother, which again it have. No one's a victim, no one's a victive. Sorry, no one is that? Everyone's a vict yes, yeah, okay, sorry. On March fourth, one thousand nine hundred and eighty three, the CDC announces that most cases were among homosexual men. Drug injection users and people with him. APHELIA, I don't know what that is. That is super rare, like blood clotting disease or something like your blood doesn't plot properly. I don't know. It's Um it was. It's a disease that actually has been carried down through the royal family and stuff, and the Romano of the Russia had it, the actual the road, the Romanov are Alexei had it and he wasn't really allowed to do anything when he can because his parents thought that he would like pat his arm open and died. Jesus Tenemosho has that. Oh my God, if we the royal this deadly disease soon, oh my God, Joe, Joe, Jose, no, dude, whatever her name is. Move On. Okay, wait, sorry, the royal family just like the favorite granddaughter of the Queen just turned eighteen and apparently it's causing drama. ANYWAYS, which queen? The Queen of England, the only Queen, she says like an old I don't think you're her grand rondy. No, she does have a granddaughter and she just turned eighteen. She's the favorite. anyways. Yeah, Oh, I forgot how old the Queen was sorry, I thought she's dead. No, she's not, not yet anyway. Moving on. So Um HIV AIDS was then classified as it is actually transmitted disease as well as being transferred to blood slush, blood product exposure. It wasn't until July thirteen nineteen eighty four that needle injection was classified as a way of transmission. That's so weird. Okay, yeah, all right. It's like, especially with like drug users, like dirty needles are an epidemic of itself. Yeah, yeah, yeah, in Nineteen Ninety two, HIV slush AIDS became the number one killer for US men age twenty four to forty, twenty five to forty four. In the year of nineteen eighty two, AIDS was referred to as gay related immune deficiency for four months before that. Yeah, bread,...

...all right, grid read for four months before the CEC started calling it aids. Imagine fucking gave with what the fuck like? You could only get it if you're like what, know, yeah, they were babies that we're getting it there. Know what they were dare or not? Sorry, well, you know, everyone is straight until they come out. Si, I thought you were in late to how I said they were. I thought you were going to really tell how I said they like, I literally, like they were suffering some own they won't gay yet they were. No, it was just in the title anyways. So America was, for a word, ignorance. Fus Can see idiots once again, jackhead, its home of A. Canada's not much better. Yeah, yeah, but we didn't have an epidemic. Well, we probably. Yeah, it was like everywhere. Yeah, focused on it in America. Yeah, but then it would have been what the fuck are the I don't know, like a talkings? Actually is supposed to be pandemic. Is the world I supposed to be like our country? I love this because my social teacher was telling me about it when covid s doubted. Oh Gross, we hate covid Oh did I type that wrong? Is that? Won't you bolded that? It's just funny. Oh my God, the time Reagan didn't even publicly say the word ad until one thousand nine hundred and eighty five, not one thousand eight hundred and ninety five, like I'd previously fights, and by that point over twelvezero Americans had already died. So, you know, fuck that. Yeah, yeah, treatments for hype AIDS included levels of, quote unquote, toxic medications that are actually like today considered to be like overdose amounts, like if you gave someone that medication today, it would be considered like giving them an overdose. so that's not sway. Yeah, and the government and the FDA only started taking serious action after it's activists started becoming increasingly public and getting attention. I actually I read this one thing that in like one thousand nine hundred and ninety one or something, this one protester of like got a giant condom or something and like put it on top of a home Wi phobic person's house. But don't quote me on that because I can't remember. One hundred's so funny. Yeah, Um, so discrimination against people with AIDS is so serious that it actually has its own term, which is a Sara Phobia. So Sarah Phobia stemmed as a result of these misconceptions that it is a strictly gay std that it's not, that it's not swag exactly. UNSWEAT egg once way delicious these forms of just give a nation. I'll still active, most not really with the blood the blood band in America. It's not in Canada. Know this is in Canada. Actually, what? Yeah, I'm good, I could donate blood. This specific paragraph here is do like her Canada. I actually there was. I got this source from a article that was written actually like just like fifteen days...

...ago or something, that was criticizing Trudeau because, true to like, when he got a like it or something, he was saying that he's going to put an end to the blood band or whatever. Oh, yeah, it was gonna heard. I have good news, though. This is something to do with the Canadian blood services, as they are trying to remove the coming waiting period. Yeah, that that was part of the article. Yeah, I mean I feel like if you're banning people from donating blood because of first of AIDS, you should just make it to the only asexuals can donate blood. I can't just go, guys, I can't donate blood if I'm like in a relationship, most likely at all like that. Like this is I guess like this is you, guys, isn't doesn't affect you, but for me this is like, yeah, this affect you. Mean well, I mean, what's your blood type? I can't it doesn't it doesn't matter that I don't weigh enough. You donate blood. Yeah, that's because you can die, though. Yeah, that's what, because you'll die if you donate. You'll really yours. This is like, in fact, like this is just scrimin. Hey, this is n donate blood. Technically donate because I'm a Jine. Yeah, it's just like. I mean, if it's circtly something that you're worrying about because of aid's, like I feel like, I feel like people can be born with it too. Also. That's why I supposed that. Yeah, no, it doesn't matter my blood type, because they before like yeah, oh, negatives really well, right, because will know, like, basically, they'll only take you to donate blood if you're own negative, pretty much like the Lego. It's not needed if you're in know it is, because it's much better to have the same blood type, of the same blood type. No, my bio don't talk about this. He's like type A B or a or something whatever. And he no, not not a be like a or something like a negative or positive. I don't remember. Anyways, he tried to donate blood and he and they were like sorry, we have too much of that. You can't donate blood today. Yeah, that's has nothing to do with his blood type. That's that he there that amount of blood type. They have enough, they don't need more. Yeah, exactly. So that has to do with his blood type. But I'm saying that's not always a thing that happens. Okay, eventually they run out of that type of blood. They just won't own negatives. No, no, they's. They want all type of blood. They own. Negative benefits them, especially in emergial situations when you can talk to the person. But having a be having a having beat like all of the types of blood on hand, because it's much better to have the same type of blood with the blooding your system, because then that means no rejection. Oh, negative, there shouldn't be any rejection, but it's still better have the same type. I wonder what my blood Lipe is. Me Too, I don't know. I believe my thinks, as I'm Obie a a be negative, which I think is the worst type. No, that's the type where you can be a stunt double. What marks like? You're the universal receiver. I'm leaving the Muss. So that means really dangerous jobs and you'll be find no matter what blend blood transfusion you need. Well, anyway, the blood band, the friends came in from donating blood if they've had sexual relationships with a man in the past three months. Before two thousand and nineteen, though, the waiting period was five years. Before two thousand and thirteen, game men were on a life time band to donate blood. Not only does this discriminate men who have had sex relationships with other men, it also lacks a blood supply. That I'm one person that they can no longer give blood to someone if they need it. Yeah, and honestly, that the thing that discussed me most about us is that up until two thousand and thirteen, which wasn't even ten years ago, Gay men were on a lifetime band.

Like yeah, that is so flocked up. Yeah, well, jokes on them. My donated blood when I was sitting now, before I came out. So Gay. Yeah, but if you're in the closet you can't have AIDS. Obviously, I mean and less I have. I have dated and I was joking. I don't think you will. I think your brain with some processing the information. No, I was joking. Okay, anyways, of all the activists who stood against AIDS discrimination, Princess Diana are fucking Lord and Savior. Is perhaps the most famous with the most widely regarded effects. In one thousand nine hundred and eighty seven, six weeks before rigging Reagan acknowledged AIDS, Princess Diana's famous photograph of her shaking hands with an AIDS patient occurred until her death. Princess Diana was a widely regarded activist of AIDS, and for this we all thinker, as well as Prince Harry, who is continuing Princess Diana's work power combolt. Yeah, I am I forgot to put it in the paragraph. I've actually forgot quite a few things throughout the script. But the reason that it like basically like Princess Igana shaking hands with that patient like change the game for people with a HIV was because, like up until then there was like this stigmatism that you would like get a by like skin to skin, to contact and stuff like that, and she like disprove that or whatever. Anyways, we love her, we do with all of our hearts. Yeah, so the AIDS at fidemic. Do we find out if it's epidemic of pandemic? What was the difference? Oh, it's a I thought you already googled it. I was googling upboard of stuff. White, it was a glow, it's a it's a is a global pandemic by some. However, the wholy uses the term global epidemic. The difference between epidemic epidemic. These effects a large number of people. A pandemic is an epidemic, is whatever, multiple countries. So it technically is should be considered a pandemic, but they don't want to call it a pandemic. Yet it's considered a global epidemic. Yeah, I said that. I said WHO is currently calling it a global epidemic, which is should should be a pandemic, because that is what a pandemic is, is a global epidemic. Yeah, yeah, but I'm thinking a long way. I'm guessing the saying it. I'm guessing they're saying it because they don't want to, because think about like, Oh yeah, we have a aid HIV pandemic. Yeah, that does sound worse than epidemic. Yeah, yeah, but yeah, basically it's far from over, especially in third old countries. So you know, it's impossible to say whether the epidemic could have been prevented if discrimination stigma didn't ply ineer the US government. But it one hundred percent could have been ended sooner. Thousands of lives could have been saved, and that's why we're so adamant about HIV AIDS education today, because with all of the stigma and discrimination, we cannot risk this happening again, because truly, there are worth thousands of people who could have been safe. So, yeah, hid the eight patients are valid as book, HIV AIDS workers are vout as book, and Princess Diana or...

Lord and Saviors, validas book. And have a good day. I fucking love Princess Diana. I know she's amazing, we love her. She's do, she's she really is just like put herself first. Yeah, well, she's dead. Yeah, but like, yeah, she was forced to die, but she got herself out of that situation. True, she did, which was good. Yeah, I'm glad. I think my favorite fact about her is that, like she's the only person who has been asked to like be to like they asked her to divorce Prince Charles. Like the fuck she would ask to leave the family, and that's Hilarious to me that she's like was the first person in history where they were like, you're too powerful for us, like get the fuck out. I mean, yeah, they killed her, but yeah, they assassinated her. They did. That's fine, she did not deserve that. That should be an episode topic anyway. Thank you so much come today's episode. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope that we get to see you next week for whatever topic we do, which I think is actually probably going to be queer coded villains, because that was put as a want, but this over target. So that's most like the next few episode. So check it out, because I think it's gonna be a fun one. But yes, that's there. Anything else to add? Valu, Tho this fuck not much, but answer your questions from home. I accidentally just copy and pasted my major essay into the DOC, but don't worry, I guess he did it anyways. By y'all, stay gay.
