1.1.there are numbers of HIV organizations in Indonesia but HIV tragedy still increasing until now, i heard.

1.2.so, i also still doubt about HIV organization/activist performance.

1.3. People living with HIV have many requirement but can not be fulfilled by such organizations.

1.4. Is HIV organizations/activist are useful? or just as Marketing HIV treatment?

1.5. People living with HIV as if devided:
one group, passive with less requirements
one group, actively having more requirements

1.6. so, i think that people living HIV probably also devided to:
- anti FPI and pro FPI

some gays /people living with HIV feel that HIV organizations in indonesia are less useful but they do not want to talk about it.

When i talk about islam, some gays would close their ear or did not want it
but some gays are welcome on islam

it is the same as people without HIV or heterosexual or non islam, they are divided too

some non islam want islamic country, some would angry
some moslem do not want islamic country too

why is it that religious people and governments forget the basics in their religions, being inclusion, love and forgiveness and like to act in such a cowardly way as to harass and intimidate minorities...is that truly the teachings? sad sad sad
