Stop the Stigma of Herpes

Regardless of where the stigma came from, film and TV no doubt keep it alive. Genital herpes, though, isn’t curable, is thought of as a disease only the promiscuous and cheating-types get, and is a popular joke topic. 
A pharmaceutical company polled 1900 people, 503 of whom said they have herpes, and asked them to rank the stigma of various conditions. HIV came first, with herpes second – ranking the herpes stigma as more taboo than mental illnesses, cancer, and substance abuse.

Things that Herpes is not:
  • Shameful
  • Your own fault
  • Exclusively Sexually Transmitted
  • Dirty
  • Disgusting
  • Horrifying
  • The mark of promiscuity
  • Debilitating
  • Life-ruining
  • A mark of unworthiness 
  • 100% likely to transmit every time
  • Un-treatable/Un-controllable
  • Consistently agonizing 
  • Excruciatingly painful every outbreak
  • Rare and only effects 16% of the population
  • Impossible to contract with condom use
  • Impossible for you to ever contract.
Things that Herpes is:
  • A common skin condition
  • Easily treated and managed with medication
  • Affects 75%-80% of Americans (either Type 1 or 2) 
  • Often contracted through kissing and oral sex
  • Less likely to have outbreaks as you age
  • Sometimes painless 
  • Sometimes no symptoms

Every time you laugh at herpes as the butt of a joke,
Every time you talk about how disgusting it is,
You’re probably hurting somebody that you care about. 
Stop the stigma.

Moving On with Your Life

You can date and go on with life. Many people have found that with the right attitude, they have been able to avoid rejection and find love anyway at some herpes dating sites

  1. I am deeply concerned about the still increase in population of people living with HSV, HIV, CANCERS, HEPATITIS, STROKES in our society today because of ignorance, to be Frank all this big names are grammars. I saw comments of people DR UTU helped get rid of their diseases, with the increase in population of people living with various diseases and myself as a beneficiary to DR UTU traditional cure I tot I too should reach the world via comment. Many People believed traditional herbs are so primitive and some are even shy to purchase it in public. Some went as far as trashing the legendary name of herbal medicine hiding its numerous advantages and let publicly it disadvantage and yet makes it look big, all this are just for pharmaceutical gain. All pharmaceutical cure are derived from existing traditional herbal cure from ages.
