The language of dating on the internet

Over the past few years, listings on gay dating sites increasingly specify that the poster is “clean” or “disease-free” and requests of his potential matches, “ub2” (internet-speak for “you be, too”). Of course, people are free to specify anything that’s important to them, but how does the choice of these words impact the HIV+ men who read them? What image does it give of our community? Do words matter?
