Tom is a drag queen, not trans: https://www.vox.com/identities/2016/5/13/17938130/transgender-people-drag-queens-kings
And trans people get hiv because of discrimination & survival sex: https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/0886109916651904
"But note the rest of the story. The reason why Tom had to go public with his bad health news was that a former male partner was threatening to reveal it. He must have been doing this either out of malice or in an attempt at blackmail. What nice people they are in the “gay” community! So sweet and lovable, so cute and trendy. Threatening each other, blackmailing each other, passing on lethal bugs and then blaming “stigma”. Always saying that “love wins” – when the fact is they don’t know what love is, and they are all losers.
You’re a loser Mr Neuwirth. No matter how many stupid dresses you put on and how many followers you have on Instagram, you are a pathetic loser and we feel very sorry for you."
I think this is projection: https://www.reddit.com/r/skeptic/comments/onw9rs/homophobic_failure/h5y3ubu/?utm_source=reddit&utm_medium=usertext&utm_name=askgaybros&utm_content=t1_hy8hhpg
"Many of the pathetic broken people described in these articles are already HIV positive at the age of 17 – typical – and they ignore the fact that it’s the most damaging drug for people with HIV. They ask “why are people still using it?” – maybe because they are stupid, disturbed or in some way damaged people, is the answer you are looking for. That’s why they become addicts.
Then they complain about “homophobia” and blame heterosexuals!
The prevalence of drug-addiction among male homosexuals is one thing that is fuelling the rise and rise of HIV infection. Yes, the epidemic is not going away. Because while they glorify themselves and complain about prejudice, and get public subsidies to help them with their problems, you still can’t fix STUPID. They are caught in a syndrome of perversion and self-harm.
VGB says : Let their whinging stop. It’s time they took the blame."
Except they give a source that says this: https://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/20160201/west-village/meth-is-overlooked-problem-transgender-gay-communities-experts
"Tanya Walker, a transgender woman who co-founded New York Transgender Advocacy Group, highlighted a need for drug treatment programs specifically for transgender people, because mainstream centers often aren't equipped to help them.
“When they go there, they’re often mis-gendered, disrespected or forgotten about while they’re there,” she said.
That puts them back on the street where, she said, many go back to the survival sex work that led them to use meth in the first place.
"You have to do it," Walker said of the sex work. "If you don't do it, you don't eat, you don't have anywhere to live, you can't survive.
Part of the problem is that meth is cheap, easy to get and makes the user feel “sort of superhuman,” said Doug Wirth, CEO of the health provider Amida Care NY.
That’s appealing not just for sex workers, but also for young people struggling with their sexual orientation, Wirth said.
“When I think back to being young," he said, "and I’m just discovering who I am, and I don’t know how you’re going to react ... [meth] creates that sense of, ‘I can come over and talk to you.’”
From harassment in school to family rejection and shame about their identity, experts say gay youth face challenges that have have resulted in a higher drop-out rate, higher suicide rate and a greater likelihood of homelessness — and of drug abuse.
LGBT youth are twice as likely to use marijuana, three times more likely to use heroin, and nine times more likely to use crystal meth, Davis said."
