@pathetic_millenial93 I hope they never cure it, that'll just encourage degenerates

@_nadioso_

My aunt died in 94 from contracting HIV that rapidly turned into full blown AIDS from her husband because she was trying to conceive a child and he never told her he had it..so fuck all you nimwitz because she’s a fucking hero staring down a path to pain and death all because her husband was a back stabbing asshole!!

@yesveronica dipshit

@lord_baker6

People with aids arnt hero's

@tiyeranosaurus_rex

@bane17 condoms don’t always prevent stds, everyone knows that.

@tliles2

Still wondering how that makes you a hero?

@anarchxwitch

@tliles2 mmhmm. Kiddo, you ain’t fooling me. You have done nothing but try to attack me, my intelligence, and my presence. But you bit off more than you can chew here, kid. Go pull your privileged bullshit to someone else.

@anarchxwitch

@tliles2 kid, you neither have the world experience, nor the basic historical understanding of this topic. I don’t need to explain a single thing to you. Nothing. I was fighting a war when you were in pre school. You wouldn’t know the first thing about heroism or struggle. You’ve been handed everything you have and never worked for anything. You are in no position to make demands for me to labor for you.

@anarchxwitch

@tliles2 I’m not an authority, but I have some pretty dam good insight on it. Further, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see it here.

@anarchxwitch

@anemrenrew I never claimed to protect liberty. But I did fight in the battle of Ramadi

@anarchxwitch

@tliles2 I’m not a liberal. Further, im not attacking anyone for their opinion. I’m attacking bigotry. Huge difference

@tliles2

@glutenfreeveegan that’s what I’m wondering???

@anemrenrew

@anarchxwitch in which battle did you protect my liberty?

@captaindaddio

Once and a while i check this page wondering, "what stupid shit do they have to say now? Need new victims."

@anarchxwitch

@liamromeojudas are you a combat veteran? I’m not going to answer a single question you have until you answer that. I am combat veteran. So you don’t speak for me. Are you a combat vet or not?

@liamromeojudas

@anarchxwitch a memorial about all the vets committing suicide isnt something that needs to be shown to get people to realise a problem? What about what I said makes me a bigot? Saying they aren't all heros? Yeah good for them parading around with signs and shit. The real heirs are the scientists and medical professionals pulling long extra shifts trying to find a cure.

@pathetic_millenial93

@christian_you_cee step 2: an hero achieved

@christian_you_cee

@pathetic_millenial93 How to become an hero. Step#1 get aids

@badaraofficial

Fantastic!

@glutenfreeveegan

@yesveronica grow up. no one is being hateful. just questioning why theyre "heroes"

@glutenfreeveegan

@anarchxwitch what did i say that was bigoted? just because i dont think these people are heroes doesnt mean i hate them, or even have anything against them. you fucking moron.

@glutenfreeveegan

@dirkpho im definitely being a cocksack right now. im fine with it.

@dirkpho

@anarchxwitch stereotype notwithstanding, heartless vegans makes 0 sense. Like it or not we've got opposing ideas on outside influence. Someone with a tinfoil hat may say you're a cossack too right. That influence does exist, why deflect it?

@anarchxwitch

@dirkpho im certainly not trying to be confrontational with you over it. Just offering that I don’t think xenophobia is a good tactic in resisting the problems we’re facing today. Creating these grandiose conspiracies about Russian Bots turns the attention away from the real problems we face right here at home. Good luck out there

@jabhemp

The word Hero has pretty much lost it's meaning... It's used for anyone who stands up for anything these days. Canada is the real hero this week!!

@dirkpho

@anarchxwitch you do have them at home but i stand by it being fuckery afoot, we can agree to disagree

@anarchxwitch

@glutenfreeveegan I didn’t call you a republican. You don’t have to be a republican go be bigoted. There’s plenty of it to go around. Maybe instead of belittling people’s struggle, you could get to know it. No one here has ever said “having aids alone makes someone a hero.” ThTs how you’re interpreting it because you’re ignorant to the struggles connected to it. It’s not anyone’s responsibility to educate you. Take the time to educate yourself about the deeper components involved in this topic.

@glutenfreeveegan

@anarchxwitch not russian, not a bot, not a republican. just hella annoyed at the idea that having aids alone makes you a hero.

@glutenfreeveegan

@adrianala_negra i agree, it sucks that they have to live with a horrible disease. still doesnt make them heroes.

@anarchxwitch

@dirkpho he’s not a Russian not, he’s an American. I understand the frustration, for sure, but, let’s be real, these problems are, and have always been, American problems. We don’t need Russian conspiracies. We got racist, bigots, right here at home

@anarchxwitch

@liamromeojudas first off, guy, I’m a marine infantry combat veteran (battle of Ramadi 05). Secondly, no one said you can’t make a memorial for veterans. People memorialize veterans all the time. Albeit, not in the ways we need. Nowhere does it say “we’re the only hero’s.” Thirdly, fuck every single cop. Finally, AIDS isn’t just a STD. The fact you brought that up shows that you’re really just a bigot. AIDS is spread in numerous way. Furthermore, the LGBT community has been heroic as fuck in their fight against AIDS. Says an Iraq War Combat Vet. Are you a combat vet? Cause if you’re not, I’d like to offer you walk away now before I enlighten you more about what being a coward is.

@liamromeojudas

@anarchxwitch so if I made a memorial about....veterans commiting suicide....or cops killed by gang/cartel members, ya know, people actually fighting for a cause, are they heros too? Or is it only heroic if it's a sexually transmitted disease that we have known about for years and yet we continue to go around fucking like rabbits?

@itsjustarash

@darryl_snakebite why does that matter to YOU. Just because YOU cant relate, doesnt mean someone else feels the same way. I think children going through chemo and battling cancer are heroes. I think a parent who lost their child to gun violence is a hero.

@cwcolson

Then tell me why when I try and signal Aidsboy to save the day, he curves.

@rebull7

@casey.cee.7 wow bro sick burn

@knivesnejad

why is someone a hero for catching AIDS? What the fuck has the world come to 😭

@yagerbomb71

Although very sad when people@die of anything, including AIDS....The word “hero” might be a bit strong. You get aids mostly from unprotected sex with random strangers still, right? 🤔

@abysstopher

@therealtommygunn unfollow then, douche

@yesveronica

@lordguppy btw no, I cannot even.

@yesveronica

@lordguppy my elderly mother got a pug after our 12 year old pug passed away in May. I help take care of him because he needs constant love and attention. My first ever paid job was working at a dog rescue. I’m currently an animal care technician at one of the top ten public universities in America. Sucks for you to come at me about some false facts you inferred from my Instagram posts. You’re an idiot.
