“It’s not exclusive to the hetero community, in the gay community, stealthing or “gift-giving” is the practice of transmitting HIV from positive men to negative men. “Please don’t infect me.” is a common plea for men who want to remain negative. It’s not just about male dominance, it’s about what I call the “predatorial type”. One that seeks out unsuspecting prey and manipulates them by capitalizing on their vulnerabilities for the predator’s selfish gain. Their exertion of a false sense of power masks their own weakness and self-hatred. They resent and admire their prey because they embody what they wish they could be.”
