In California itís a more serious crime for a health care worker to call a transgender person by the pronoun of their birth gender than it is to knowingly give them a life-altering incurable virus.
So you're saying that exposing people to genital herpes should be a felony?

If you consider genital herpes to be "life-altering", you probably have a different sort of life than the average person.

But sure.  If you intentionally expose somebody to any STD without telling them about it, it should be a potential felony.  Is giving somebody a permanent disease less serious than any other intentional conduct that causes serious bodily injury to somebody?
It's an incurable condition that requires you to be on medication and makes contracting other STDs easier. It's not HIV, but it's not a walk in the park.

As usual, the truth is somewhere in-between. There was someone with undetectable viral load who had sex with a condom and got sentenced to 25 years in jail and is now required to register as a sex offender (which, incidentally, means also means he can't even be left alone with his nieces and nephews anymore). Does this sound justice to you?

If it was undetectable, how could he have knowingly exposed someone else? Isn't that what this is about? Is this story legit?

The California socialist regime  cares more about not offending the gay lobby than it does for protecting it's people.  Imagine whether your homosexual or straight and a sex partner gave you HIV  knowing that they are HIV positive. To me this is serious and irresponsible and the most they will get is a slap on the hand with a misdemeanor.

I both live in California and have worked in an HIV specialty clinic, and this is one of the stupidest things I have ever read.

If you knowingly expose someone the HIV, you should get more than just a misdemeanor. Your exposing someone to something they shouldn't have to deal with.   It is a violation of someones life.
Because you Live in CA and worked in an HIV clinic means you should know how violated someone is by getting HIV unknowingly.
I live in L.A. This is a socialist state that is run by a socialist governor and legislature  that doesn't care about the people.  They only care about not offending someone.

When you're on antiretrovirals, the virus becomes undetectable in semen. There's still a chance it could transmit, but it's minuscule.
