AIDS, which is Autoimmune Deficiency Syndrome is caused by HIV, which stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus. There are many ways you can catch HIV, such as sharing needles, blood transfusions from mother to child during pregnancy, Breast milk, and vaginal or seminal fluids, including cum and pre-cum. You cannot catch HIV from feces, urine, sweat, tears, or saliva.
One big misconception, is that you can catch AIDS through other ways. One person debating with me told me that AIDS is caused when feces enters the bloodstream, and this is not true. AIDS is only caused by HIV, and HIV is not transmitted via feces. Besides, you cannot catch AIDS, you catch HIV. HIV may then grow into AIDS, or it may not.
HIV is not transmitted via kissing, touching, or worming (yes, that's a thing). It can take years, up to 20 or more years, where a person is asymptomatic and does not show any symptoms at all. Symptoms of AIDS are very similar to that of the flu such as fever and chills. An AIDS diagnosis is made when there are 200 or less T cells in your body per micro liter of blood, and you get a disease that you wouldn't normally acquire.
