I am officially impressed and disturbed--- in the same breath. I think that you touch on some good issues that most people don't realize, but I also touch in my book: self-deprecation.

This was realy disturbing. HIV+ and not teling your partners? Come on. . . "That, too, is a part of self-deprecation. Shelton stated in the interview, ". . . my rationalization is. . ." and continued to mention that it's a mutual thing--you could ask, and he could tell. Take responsibility for yourself. I agree. But isn't there something morally or ethically wrong with leaving something unsaid? And, isn't it a federal offense to knowingly infect someone without telling them your status? This, my friends, is the epitome of self-deprecation, the demise of the black man. And, if anyone disagrees, that'd be uncivilized.

Am I judgemental? Yes. But what do you expect, I'm just The Bougie Black Boy.

Love your blog. By the way does anyone know if the blogger that used to have soulofaman.com still has a blog? I loved his blog as well.

Trent, you know that you put your foot in this interview right? I was glued to the laptop because it was so intriguing. I don't know it I like Shelton Jackson or if I want to punch him in the face. He was very honest and open in his interview. Imagine what the world would be like if others were as honest with their realities. I am interested in purchasing his book
