According to the New York Times, the 45-year-old athlete met a man online and fucked him a bunch over the course of a few months. Darren’s former boyfriend says that he ended the relationship after discovering medical records in Darren’s home that revealed his positive HIV status.
Chiacchia is from Florida, one of 36 states with a history of criminalizing HIV, and where his charges might land him in prison for 30 years. Prosecutors are currently culling evidence, which includes tape-recorded conversations and email transcripts. In one email message, Darren explains that he didn’t want to disclose his status because he didn’t trust his new boyfriend or want the information used against him.
Well, Darren’s mistrust was well-founded, because now a lovers’ quarrel between two consenting adults has landed in the hands of HIV prosecutors, who are eager to haul people’s sex lives into courts with a history of absurd and irrational convictions, as with the 35-year prison sentence a couple years ago of a Dallas man who spit on a police officer.
It’s unclear where HIV criminalization will lead. Will HIV positive guys need to start wearing cowbells? Mandatory biohazard tattoos? And what about other diseases? Canada is prosecuting people who don’t disclose their herpes. And this one time I made out with a guy even though I had a cold. These kind of distinctions should be made by the adults having sex, not by prosecutors who are eager to legislate our sex lives.
To Darren’s former boyfriend I would say two things: assume that everyone you fuck is HIV positive, duh; and crying to the police makes you a pussy, okay?
