the social stigma is worst than the actual infection.
i get cold sores sometimes.
that is a form of herpes.
i just take my medicine and stay in my house for a few.
99% of the time i'm fine.
i once knew, actually still know, a woman with genital herpes.
99% of the time, she was fine (and i do mean fine)
life goes on.
let's all grow up.

I voted their fault.
I have had a talk with my two kids, more conversations are due. Be careful.
Now if someone.. gave it to you it woud be their fault. They gave it to you.. not you them. I don't sleep around nor do I touch door handles in public rest rooms.
Same partner for 32 years. I would never bring anything home I couldn't put out. Condoms I did purchase ( while my wife was off birth control ) have expired. I'm not sure. Do condoms have a correct side? They are still something I have very limited experience with.
Do you all ever think these strains of diseases were started by labs funded by the religious right to promote promiscuity? They are control freaks and I wouldn't put it past them... they started this in Africa.. and it boomaranged back.

You willingly took part, knowing full well what the possible outcome would be.
I don't see how you can blame that outcome on another.
Even if you can put some of the blame on another ... will that make you feel any better, as you live the rest of your life with some disease? What's the point of blaming another, for the choices you've made?
Well ... if they are rich, i guess you can sue 'em or sump'n ... iono.
This has turned into quite a humorous thread ... serious topic ... but summa yall are krazee!
Thanks everyone for sharing.
