       Taoismhas no specific practicesdealing with HIV/AIDS. An AIDS patient
       would not needto be treatedin any differentways to any otherdying patient
       in te~s of de!lthrelatedpractices.Howeverthe way the personcontracted
.-mv         may impact on the support of the persons family, friends and
       community.If HIV has beencontractedthroughhomosexuality,      intravenous
       drug use, or as a sex worker,issuesmaybe raisedthat impact on the way the
       communityviews the dying patient.

 \     Although Taoismdoesnot contain suchstrongteachingson homosexuality      ~s
       someother religions,argumentsagainsthomosexuality     have beendeveloped
       by Taoist teachers. Taoist rejection of homosexualityis rooted in the
       assumption   that it leadsto an imbalancein yin and yang energies.In male-
       femalesexualrelationsthere is a basic symmetryand balanceof the yin and
       the yang; in samesexrelationsthereis an imbalancein thesetwo forces.The
       double yang energy in male-male relations is seen as more dangerous,
       becausethe two assertiveforces are more likely to conflict (Wawrytko,
       1993). Within Taoist beliefs drug use can also be seenas disturbing the
              of
       balance the user'senergies    creatingdisharmony.

       While Taoism can be seen to contain teachings expressingreservations
       towards homosexualityand drug use, the practical implications of these
       teachingswill be influencedby cultural andpersonal views. Thus reactionsto
                       sex
       a homosexual, worker or intravenousdrug userdying from AIDS are
       likely to be very personaland also shapedby cultural and communityviews.
       In caring for a homosexualpersondying from AIDS it is importantto be
       aware that there may be religious or cultural reservationstowards their
       sexuality. Similarly there may be reservationstowards sex workers or
""C    intravenous  drug users.
