Hi, my name is David Cirillo, and I'm a student from Rice University. I am interested in expanding this article with more scholarly sources, and to add specifics on types of discrimination, a history of discrimination, and recent social progressions and policy.

[untitled section][edit]

I created this page so that It would become an article. Their currently is no article (aside from this one) which strictly addressed prejudice and discrimination againist HIV-positive people. -Rainbowofpeace (talk) 11:46, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

So why haven't you added to it? all you have done is copied this all from the AIDS article. If it bothered you so much or you felt strongly enough that it should have it's own article then why have you left it to someone else to do the work? Unless you can come up with something else to put here then this article can probably be deleted and redirect to the relevant section in the main AIDS page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:53, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

Merge HIV exceptionalism[edit]

Support merging from HIV exceptionalism to Discrimination against people with HIV/AIDS since the issue is stigma -- Aronzak (talk) 00:01, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

Support per nomination, also I think that the original research in that article should be removed. Rupert Loup (talk) 18:20, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
Oppose: discrimination is, in this context, inherently negative and arises from stigma; HIV exceptionalism was motivated by people with good intentions and affected communities ("AIDS activists and their allies" as the Oppenheimer (2005) reference quotes), with an aim of providing better health care and preemptively opposing what they feared would be the draconian actions of the state. While both discrimination and exceptionalism may be driven by stigma, that does not make them equivalent. I believe that they are sufficiently distinct and notable topics that they should be discussed separately. Klbrain (talk) 10:22, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

Rhet 130: Wikipedia Assignment[edit]

Hi, I will be working on this wikipedia not to delete previous information but to add to current info that is already on the page. Some sections will be incomplete but by November 25, 2016 everything will be completed in time and with the correct information. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tmontford (talkcontribs) 22:31, 16 November 2016 (UTC)
