What’s dating like when you have an STD?

Filed under: issues,Psychology — posted by Breakup Girl @ 10:58 am

Writing at Salon.com, BG’s alterego talks to many brave women to find out. Of course, they shouldn’t have to be so “brave” in order to speak up, but what they speak about — the persistent stigma of STIs, especially for women, despite their breathtaking near-ubiquity — is exactly what otherwise keeps them quiet. (When one woman named Michele worked up the gumption to disclose to a potential partner, he said: “You seem like a very classy girl — I would never have imagined you having that.” Translation: “You slut.” And he was one of the polite ones.)

But! As it turns out, the vast majority of people interviewed in the story — even the expert doctor — wound up finding (a) community among others online, and/or (b) a happy relationship (with someone “sero-negative,” even). In other words, there is life — sex life, love life, LIFE life — after/with an STI. The morals:

1. Get yourself tested. And educated.

2. Use condoms.

3. Manners, people! You don’t know anything about how or why anyone got anything. Don’t judge. Don’t even snicker. You might even have something yourself and not know it. (See #1.)

  1. Por eso digo que no veo justo tacharla de mielda de maquina, otra cosa es el servicio tecnico que en mi experiencia deja bastante que desear y te digo que en placa solo ha fallado una (creo que es placa vaya) de un margen de cerca de veinte que pillamos, por lo tanto la media no me da a pensar que las placas vayan malas de serie. Creo que una de las cosas mas importantes para comprar cualquier producto es justamente el servicio post venta y por lo que he leido en todos los foros este es patetico.

  2. Hiya, I am really glad I’ve found this information. Today bloggers publish only about gossips and internet and this is actually annoying. A good web site with exciting content, this is what I need. Thank you for keeping this website, I will be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Cant find it.

  4. Together with the whole thing which appears to be building within this subject material, all your perspectives are actually quite radical. On the other hand, I beg your pardon, because I do not give credence to your entire plan, all be it exciting none the less. It looks to me that your remarks are generally not entirely rationalized and in reality you are generally yourself not wholly confident of your point. In any case I did take pleasure in reading through it.

  5. Once I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new feedback are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any means you possibly can remove me from that service? Thanks!

  9. シャネル偽物の財布、腕時計、靴、眼鏡、ピアス、バッグかばんの価格は大体いくらですか?
    シャネルのかばんの価格は具体的に明確なことがないのです。
    それのいくらを知っていたいならば、その材質、大きさとデザインを見てみなければなりません。
    たとえばシャネル偽物の財布の価格はシャネルの女性かばんの価格と異なります。
