    Was an odd protest. But guess what sometimes these acts raise awareness to issues and get peoples attention. The issue is that medical research funding which AIDS research and what not is covered under this, might be cut, and might cost peoples lives. Odd protest? Sure. Did it grab peoples attention and is raising awareness to this issue? Yes.
    I'm partial to abstinence awareness, myself.

    Austerity sucks. All kinds of peoples' personal oxen get gored.

    As for stripping naked in the man's office to protest, those idiots should have been set on fire.

    How does it cost people lives? Is it costing people lives or did their own actions cost them their lives? How many new aids case are healthcare workers, first responders and monogamous sexual activities?

    The truth is that aids is 100% preventable. If everyone acted responsibly, there would no longer be aids in the US and modern countries. Every case of aids can be traced to someone acting irresponsibly. The people who get aids that acted responsibly are infected because someone else didn't.

    Is it the governments responsibility to fund research for a disease that can easily be prevented so that those who act stupid can continue to do so carefree? I don't think so. For those who are infected by others acting irresponsibly, I would dearly love to help them and if I could, I would offer them a cure. For the ones who will not take simple precautions to protect themselves and become infected. Tuff **** you morons.

    In one breath, you concede that responsible people are infected by the actions of irresponsible people. In the next, you deny that the government should do anything to help prevent or cure the disease because it would enable the behaviors of the irresponsible people.

    Do you care about the lives of responsible citizens, or not? Make up your mind.

    I do not think it raised awareness at all. Showing up naked to an elected official's office just makes you look like a dumb ass or nut and sweeps any message under the rug.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Well, color me old-fashioned, but public nudity is against the law as well as stupid. And I don't need my consciousness raised about HIV/AIDS.

    And suddenly big government is the alternative? Ever heard of personal responsibility, and person to person charity?
