Speedy Reminds You It's World AIDS Day

Loren over at One Diverse Comic Book Nation reminded us it was World AIDS Day today and has a nice synopsis of HIV+ characters in comics.

Speedy (Mia), Green Arrow's most recent sidekick, is the only HIV+ character in comics these days that we know of. If she were here she would remind you that:

1) One should not practice unsafe sex. In other words, wear a condom dudes! If you're on the receiving end, make sure he wears one, regardless if you are male or female.
2) Don't share needles when using intravenous drugs. Hopefully you're not shooting up, but if you are don't share those needles!

There are, of course, lots of other things you shouldn't do. Visit the World AIDS Day site for more information
