I read this article a couple of times and I double checked it was not The Onion:
HIV-positive activist Josh Robbins first warned in November 2016 that Publix, Florida’s beloved supermarket giant, was refusing to provide its workers with drugs that prevent HIV transmission. Nearly a year and a half later, the grocery chain has still not answered why it has adopted this health-care policy. The Lakeland-based company danced around the question again this week when HIV-focused website TheBody.com asked for an explanation.
In light of the conservative leanings of the company’s founding family and its board, some critics are asking whether Publix has any business reason for denying “pre-exposure prophylaxis,” or PrEP, drugs (known by the brand name Truvada) to its workers or if the company simply objects to the fact that the drugs are recommended for use by gay men, who are at higher risk for HIV transmission.
Publix Under Fire for Reportedly Refusing to Give HIV Meds to Workers.
I love the term “pre-exposure prophylaxis.” In case you have not had your morning coffee, it means that some Gays working for Publix want the company to pay for a drug that helps not contracting HIV when they want to have sex with an unchecked stranger. Basically they want to irresponsibly go play “hide the sausage” and want Publix subsidize they don’t catch HIV. I thought the use condoms were the most effective way not to get HIV and a host of other STDs. Does that mean they are riding the beast bareback?
And how much is the monetary haircut? According to Drugs.com “The cost for Truvada oral tablet (100 mg-150 mg) is around $1,645 for a supply of 30 tablets, depending on the pharmacy you visit.”
Ladies and Gentlemen, according to some radical members of LGQBT community who probably does not want to wear condoms, it is the duty of a private company to pay for the unchecked sexual behavior of its employees at the tune of $19,740 a year. That is three thousand more than the Minimum Wage in Florida. That means that in order to let some guy get his freak out over the weekend, Publix needs to fire the guy collecting the shopping carts and moping the spill in Aisle 5.
But yeah, it is Publix who are the heartless bigoted jackasses.
Dude, buy your own condoms.
Your Sub Sandwich just got more expensive, Publix caved in.

But the company is resposible for his actions, not him…(sarcasm filter-off)
Typical liberal reasoning
I have a few LGBT and LGBT-“ally” friends who are having a shit fit over this, saying crap like they’re boycotting Publix. Asinine.
And this kind of bullying by the LGBTQXYZABC “radicals community” is why they are losing ground.
The average American doesn’t like bullies. Act like one at yer own peril, and expect a punch in the nose, for starters, if you keep that up.
“I read this article a couple of times and I double checked it was not The Onion:”
I have reached the conclusion that the with the current state of “news reporting” the best indicator of fake news is “not The Onion.”
I thought, “No, that can’t be right. It has to be a joke! No one could possibly demand their employers pay for a bottle of $55 pills so that they can have sex.” Except no.
Thanks Josh. Today I learned that gay men are just diseased, perverted, vectors for infection. They can’t be asked to take the same precautions as straight people because they lack the same level of personal responsibility. As a straight, monogamous person, my grocery bill must go up so that these degenerates don’t kill each other off with their infected penises.
Way to go SJW.
Publix caved in to the LGBTQXYZ SJW radicals. I’ll be sending them a letter tomorrow that I will no longer buy at their stores until they reverse this idiocy.
I will not buy from a company who subsidizes people who lack any level of personal responsibility whatsoever. I don’t care about their sexually, but pisses me off that they’re bulling people to conform to their mindset. FUCK. THAT. NOISE.
Last I checked, this is still America. Not going to let a bunch of people who can’t control their own debauchery tell me how to live my fucking life.
The price of the sub sandwiches just went up
Thought experiment: if Little Jimmy cannot/will not wrap his Little Jimmy, when it might kill him, just how careful will he be handling your food?
Here’s the reason… it’s going to blow your mind. Condoms are not intended, created, tested for, nor approved for usage during anal sex. It’s an off label indication to use the medical device outside of vaginal intercourse. PrEP is the only FDA approved method to prevent HIV during anal sex.
(Edited…fell for fallacy)
Do condoms make for safe for Anal sex or not? Disregard the FDA label crap.
