I am a bit baffled by your use of "at worst" here. Wouldn't being able to sexually transmit immunosuppression of cancer be a good thing?

What a nice clip.
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.

We are all in The Gutter.
Some of us see The Gutter.
Some of us see The Stars.
by mr. Oscar Wilde.

Those that want to Know; Know.
Those that do not Know; Don't tell them.
They do terrible things to people that Tell Them.

I liked the T-cells so much, I made an ava out of one.
A virus walks into a bar, the bartender says "We don't serve viruses in here".
The virus replaces the bartender and says "Now we do!"
