I would rather die not knowing than knowing I have a shameful disease.
It’s none of my business that you are HIV positive. You deserved it for being promiscuous.
Sex is not an issue to be discussed anyhow.
It is a woman’s duty to satisfy a man sexually. One shouldn’t be denied any sexual favours, especially a man.
Women do not have the right to say no to sex with their husbands. It’s against our cultural values.
I think I would commit suicide if I found out I was positive.
