Woman tells everyone she has herpes

Ella Dawson, a recent graduate of Wesleyan University who resides in New York City, was diagnosed with herpes two years ago and says she’s been dropping the ‘herpes bomb’ about six months after she had her first outbreak.

‘When a real person, a woman you know and respect, casually mentions having herpes, it stops being a punchline and starts being someone’s reality,’ Dawson said.

Genital herpes, you understand. It’s important to her that you know.

This might be one of those “end of civilization” things. I’m not sure.

  • Does she tell you she’s Herped up before or after Hello?

    • eMan14

      “Hello, my name is Ella, and I have herpes.”
      Works for me. How could I resist that? Now I can have sex without fear of wondering if it’s safe.

      • Why not just get a T-Shirt?

        • Don’t doubt it.

            We can start a clothing line:

            “Don’t be a herpeaphobe!”

            “it’s nothing serious, it’s only herpes”

            “Be compassionate to people dealing with herpes”

            “Herped and Happy!”

        • Xavier

          Forehead tattoo. Or a brand.

      • Jabberwokk

        I get the feeling it was never about ‘safe’ and very much about ‘sex’.

    • Frau Katze

      Sounds she tells everyone regardless. So it would be “before.”

  • lolwut?

    Personally I think she’s just taking attention whoring to the next level.

    • It’s a level alright.

    • WalterBannon

      whoring already got her herpes, so now she is out to collect another prize..

    • Petey

      It’s always, “Look at me! Look at me!”

    I recall there was a lot of publicity about this in the 1970s. Then it got driven out of the headlines by HIV (which was fatal until the mid 1990s).

    Think people might have become careful over HIV (although it was most gay men and injecting drug users). Still, it was very scary stuff.

    I guess herpes is making a comeback (?) The stats sound pretty bad. One in six? Wow! That’s terrible.

    Will people never learn?

    • I know. One in six? Amazing.

      Look, I’m no moralist. I really don’t care that this chick contracted herpes by age 20. I don’t even have a problem with her telling people about it just to weird them out. (And she has an obvious moral obligation to tell anyone she sleeps with.) But, for God’s sake, it’s not something to brag about.

      This is why we can’t have nice things. The left always goes so smoothly from “look, no one’s perfect, and we all have bad luck sometimes, could we all just stop being dicks and cut people some slack?” (perfectly reasonable) to “hey, I’ve had five abortions and I’m proud of that fact! In fact, I’d get knocked up and have an abortion right now just so I could wear the I’ve Had An Abortion t-shirt! Take that, h8ters!” (batshit depraved). It’s like a kind of subconscious(?) cultural bait-and-switch.

        They’re talking about providing “abortion spas” now, so that the woman can have a holistic experience (infanticide?).

    • El Martyachi

      So statistically someone in this thread has herpes. Not pointing any fingers or anything.. but I hear Billy really gets around.

      • WalterBannon

        you can only get herpes from a progressive…

    • Speaksvolumes

      From what I understand, don’t most people carry it but don’t ever present symptoms? It’s the same as cold sores. It’s herpes simplex (something) that causes you to get them. You’ve likely been exposed especially if you have a family member who gets them (these are the ones you get on your mouth I’m talking about). But only a percentage of the population has the genetics that causes them to actually suffer outbreaks. Everybody else is infected but never has symptoms.

      2000+ years and the mantra still is ‘eat drink for tomorrow we die’. so no.

    ‘When a real person, a woman you know and respect, casually mentions having herpes, it stops being a punchline and starts being someone’s reality,’ Dawson said.

    Yeah, no. Probably even more of a punchline, ya dozy bint.

  • J. C.

    I’m suddenly no longer bothered by my current ‘extended dry spell’…

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      Until you realize that you are getting less action than a publicly know venereal disease carrier…
      😉

      • J. C.

        I’d rather do without than suffer break outs.

  • Speaksvolumes

    At least guys will know who to avoid.

  • WalterBannon

    Wesleyan University? Is that a finishing school for hookers?

  • Hard Little Machine

    Oh great, another letter for LGBTQXYZ……

  • This is what feminism has done to women. It has turned them into cesspools of self-loathing and low self-respect.

    Do you know that there is a great Herbal doctor who can cure any deadly disease. Like Cancer, Hiv, syphilis, diebeties, madness, all kinds of deadly diseases known to man, low sperm count And also bring back your Lover, help you create job opportunities e.t.c. Well my main reason why i am writing this right now is to inform the whole world about the great deeds, Dr. Ariba did for me. I was diagnosed of this deadly disease in the year 2000 ever since then i was taking my medications, until i met the great spell caster, though i never believed in spell. I saw many testimonies on how a great spell caster cured their deadly diseases. I contacted him through his phone number. I called him, he asked me to send him my email, which i did. He gave me a form to fill, I filled it and send it back to him. He told me that his god’s required some items in which he will use in casting a curing spell on me. I don’t know where to find the items he required. He told me that the only alternative is for of to send him the money, then he can help me to purchase the items from the items sellers. I promised myself to do anything to get cured. I sent him the money. He bought the items and casted a curing spell on me. Two day later he asked me to go for check-up, when i did the check-up i was tested HIV Negative. If you passing through hardship and you need a way out, kindly contact him via his email on draribaspelltemple@gmail.com OR dr.aribaspelltemple@outlook.com
