AIDS Industry Scores a Win: Fear, Shame and Guilt Taint Once Happy Practices of Chinese Prostitution

by Liam Scheff

From China, home of the current push in the ‘scare people to death with the AIDS diagnosis‘ racket:

Many of them who have symptoms live in a self-imposed exile, avoiding family members and public places because they are afraid of spreading the disease.

“I joined the chat room because I was sure I had been infected with this virus,” one patient said. He said he started to feel ill several months ago after a visit to a prostitute where he said he took precautions to avoid catching HIV.

“Twenty-four hours later I had a strong desire to vomit. I had headaches, I was dizzy, I could feel my internal organs were swelling up. I was in intense pain. This lasted months.”

Clearly the man had…you know… “it.” Right? I mean, aren’t those the symptoms? Immediate thoughts of death and intense pain after sex?

(No…not really. There are no specific symptoms). Anyway, turns out he tested negative.

Why? Maybe because the testing criteria tends to favor homosexuals, or African heterosexuals, with an emphasis on young, pregnant women.

For example, take this young Chinese woman, a newlywed, protesting to Bill Clinton that she had never had sex with anyone but her husband:

60 Minutes flew with Mr. Clinton by private plane to Kunming, the capital city of Yunnan province. It wasn’t Air Force One, but Mr. Clinton was treated like a celebrity when he arrived. From the airport he went directly to a local hospital where, to dramatize the AIDS problem, Mr. Clinton invited in the media and then, with cameras rolling, met with a young woman who is HIV infected.

This woman is the face of AIDS in China, Clinton wanted everyone to know. She says she has never used drugs, never worked in the sex trade and insists her only recent sex partner is her husband.

People in her village don’t understand, she said, and some even stop talking to her when they learn she is infected.

Turns out that poor girl was living in one of the poorest provinces of China, replete with dangerous mining jobs, migrant labor, environmental pollution and extreme poverty.

But the ex-President is a human being, after all:

“I looked at this kid and I thought, she’s my daughter’s age, you know,” says Clinton. “I want people to see her as a human being. And to see that there’s nothing wrong with touching them, people with HIV and AIDS. There’s nothing wrong with embracing them. And there’s everything right with fighting for them to have a normal life.”

So, the western doctors come in, tell you that you have a fatal, incurable disease that you could have only gotten from sex… and if you protest, they assure you that you must be lying

And you’re supposed to feel…grateful?

Clinton’s solution? Build HIV testing centers:

President Clinton’s foundation is helping to fund an AIDS testing lab in Kunming. A thousand new workers are being trained.

There are two different tests typically performed. One is the CD4, which shows you know how you’re doing as you go along. And the other is the viral load showing the amount of virus drops in the blood. We have cut the cost of these tests dramatically, by 80, 85 percent,” he says.

What an industry!

Please feel invited to read more about the crime known as HIV testing, and review the well known and recorded nature of AIDS drugs. And in the story below, read all about what happens when you think you are “HIV positive,” and ask what would have happened to this fellow if he had, indeed, convinced the doctor that he was really “positive” and started the drugs. How would it have gone?

But the real political import of the story is that in order to play ‘good nation’ with the G8 nations, China (and the Chinese people) needed to be convinced to adopt the AIDS diagnosis for their rural poor.  And it looks like they may well have…

‘New HIV’ just prostitute guilt, say doctors

* Guilt behind ‘new HIV’, doctors say
* Chatrooms full of people with the ‘illness’
* But patients believe authorities are lying

HUNDREDS of Chinese believe they have a mysterious new disease with HIV-like symptoms but doctors suggest it is just “HIV phobia” caused by guilt from having sex with prostitutes.

In the past Chinese authorities have been accused of covering up epidemics such as the SARS virus and doctors are blaming a breakdown in trust between the medical profession and patients for the growing HIV phobia.

But the BBC reports because of this breakdown many patients suspect they are being lied to when their HIV tests come back negative, even those who have had as many as seven tests.

Many of them who have symptoms live in a self-imposed exile, avoiding family members and public places because they are afraid of spreading the disease.

There are dozens of Chinese internet chat rooms filled with people who believe they have the same mystery illness.

“I joined the chat room because I was sure I had been infected with this virus,” one patient said.

He said he started to feel ill several months ago after a visit to a prostitute where he said he took precautions to avoid catching HIV.

“Twenty-four hours later I had a strong desire to vomit,” he said.

“I had headaches, I was dizzy, I could feel my internal organs were swelling up.

“I was in intense pain. This lasted months.”

He thought he was HIV positive but several tests came back negative.

Unhappy with the response from Chinese medical authorities, the man has tried to bring his illness to the attention of the World Health Organisation and researchers overseas, but with little success.

He is certain that he is ill, but currently doctors do not think they are dealing with an unknown virus.

They suspect extreme guilt or anxiety about an act he and many others feel ashamed of – sex with a prostitute – is affecting his immune systems and making them feel ill.

Dr Cai Weiping, a senior Chinese HIV researcher based at the People’s Number 8 hospital in the southern city of Guangdong, believes the problem is psychological rather than physical.

“They think we are concealing an epidemic,” he said.

  1. OMG. This is really bad news. We don’t need more HIV testing. The Chinese people don’t need HIV testing. They need work and environmental protection. The oxidative stress brought about by the work and environment in Chinese cities will cause a whole segment of the population to be HIV+. Is this going to be a new “profit center?”
