I don't care what people say about Hillary. I fucking love her.
This week she penned a letter of support to Ella Dawson. We've covered Ella's blog on overcoming STI shame. She came out as a young woman - the girl next door - living with herpes. She posted her picture and her full name. God, she has clit.
Betty has herpes. I had a long term partner with herpes (We didnt use condoms. We avoided sex during outbreaks and I never contracted it). Almost all of us harbor the herpes virus. If you have a cold sore on your mouth, why is your life over is you have one on your genitals? Why do we shame young people?
Hillary to the rescue. Thank you, Ella, for sharing your story. Let's end the STI stigma, the virginity myth and the slut stigma for good measure.
