Double standard for women with HIV...

She only gets house arrest...a man in her position would get years in prison...
A woman with HIV was sentenced to two years house arrest for having sex with a man and not disclosing her positive status.

Robin St. Clair, 28, who pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual assault, cried in court yesterday when she was told she would be registered as a sex offender for life and would be made to provide a DNA sample.

Prior to going into the Finch Ave. courtroom, St. Clair was all giggles and was ogling a picture of shirtless men in the Toronto Sun.

She didn't speak in court, and at times looked bored and picked her teeth.

Justice Paul Taylor said the victim "won't find favour with my decision."

"No sentence could restore (his) confidence in fellow human beings."

The man -- who can't be named because of a publication ban -- met St. Clair in March, 2007, at a Toronto house and asked St. Clair for oral sex.

St. Clair said no but agreed to have intercourse with a condom.

The man had intercourse with St. Clair twice and on the second occasion the condom ripped.

That was when St. Clair told the man she was HIV-positive, even though in 2004 she was issued with a so-called "Section-22" from public health officials that details her responsibility to disclose her status.

1 in 4 sexually active teenagers become infected with an STD every year, in the United States alone. Now, more than ever, we need to join together to fight this growing issue. As I read through your website, it is clear that you share the same passion for STD/STI awareness. We here, at, understand the importance of STD/STI prevention and treatments. If you could, please list us as a resource or host our social book mark button, it would be much appreciated. We can not reach every teenager, but together we can try.
If you need more information please mail me with the subject line as your URL.

Thnak You,
