Question: Do You Change Your Activities Because You Fear Contracting AIDS?
"I change some of my activities because I'm afraid of contracting AIDS. I don't change all of them, but I change some of them."
"I don't change any of my activities in fear of contracting AIDS becuase you can't get AIDS through casual contact. You can only get it through having sex and needles. You can't get it through kissing, and you can't get it through sharing drinks."
"I haven't changed my activities, but there isn't 100-percent protection from the virus, so be safe, kids."
"No, becuase the fear of AIDS in my mind is as debilitating as cancer in that if I spent my life worryiung about contacting it, my life would be worthless."
"I believe in virginity. Not just becuase I'm afraid of contracting AIDS or having a baby, but becuase the Bible tells me to."
"I haven't changed my activities regarding the threat of AIDS becuase my generation has grown up knowing all of the dangers. More importantly, we know how to protect ourselves."
"I don't change my activities becuase I don't do anything risky to begin with."
