Should An HIV-Positive Body Be Considered a Deadly Weapon?

Terrance Williams's act was profoundly thoughtless, but was it malicious, and should it be considered a crime? And if so, what kind of crime? These questions have been the subject of New York court proceedings for nearly four years. The Williams case is, in a sense, a final vestige of the scariest, most dangerous age of AIDS, when the disease carried a powerful stigma, and an infected body was seen as a dangerous weapon.

If you haven’t had sober sex in the last six months, it hardly makes you a raging drug addict. But intimate sexual connections form a very important part of our general well-being, and if we’re relying too heavily on chems to fulfil those needs, then there’s some kind of problem going on.
