ACT UP – AIDS Coalition To Unleash Power, that group, formed in a long long time ago, in a distant galaxy far far away called the 1980’s, oddly used just the A to describe Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. This was considered perfectly acceptable by them, by the gay community (there was no ABCDLGBT/COMMUNITY back then). So they called them selves A-C-T-U-P. That’s fine, groups can call themselves whatever they want and it induced a concept when conveying the term that they were radicals doing something good like when children act up and need to be punished for demanding more candy which if the parent caves and gives in to them and the kid gets more candy their teeth rot and they have immune deficiency problems.
So let’s change the tired HIV/AIDS term and update it with fresh concepts like was done by adding LGBT to the gay community. We take the A like the “Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome Coalition To Unleash Power” did and make it simply describe the whole acronym AIDS and the whole disease name Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome because clearly anyone can see the need for saving on letters, and cutting down on carbon dioxide emissions.
So it’s now HIV/A. But that’s hard to say too. Let’s make it HIVA. Or, since the H for Human is stupid to use at all because like duh it’s in humans and we never see cases of MIV coming from mosquitoes, so it’s better said as IVA.
That sounds stupid too, so why even bother with the IV because everyone knows that IV causes A, lets just say A.
A for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. Used in a sentence, “Get tested for A”.
Ahhh, that’s so much easier to say, eh?
