hiv-aids-ribbon-ip2tlrbg-200x300South Africa President Jacob Zuma signed abill that seem to be the greatest step in history
of trying to combat HIV. From now on every
person who gets tested and found to be HIV
positive would not just get counselling and
medication. They would also get a mark in a
form of a tattoo near their genital according to
the bill singed by the president.

“The mark is to protect those who can’t say
no to sex. I mean if you can’t read between the
lines you should read between the legs because
that’s where the status would be tatted. The
choice to be HIV positive is now in your hands
or your genitals for that matter….We also
encourage those who had been living with the
virus to go to the nearest public hospitals to
get their status tatted in”. said Jacob Zuma
after signing the bill and drinking his ARV’s.
