South Africa's President Jacob Zuma Signs New Draconian Law to Tattoo All HIV Positive Persons On Their Genitals

Tattooed Person
After the xenophobic attacks, South Africa is at again, and this time with a draconian law meant to set tongues wagging.
Apparently, president Zuma passed a bill that would ensure people have a mark in form of a tattoo in their loins to warn any interested partners and especially those who can’t stay without the cookie. This is the bill:
President Zuma signed a bill that seem to be the greatest step in history of trying to combat HIV. From now on every person who gets tested and found to be HIV positive would not just get counselling and medication. They would also get a mark in a form of a tattoo near their genital according to the bill singed by the president.
“The mark is to protect those who can’t say no to sex. I mean if you can’t read between the lines you should read between the legs because that’s where the status would be tatted. The choice to be HIV positive is now in your hands or your genitals for that matter….We also encourage those who had been living with the virus to go to the nearest public hospitals to get their status tatted in”. Said Jacob Zuma after signing the bill and drinking his ARV’s. 
I feel that this is a discriminative move more than a helping one.  This will increase the spate of new infections, as many people who would have ordinarily gone for testing will be afraid of been marked.
