Oh, you mean a cold sore, right? HSV1=cold sore, HSV2=genital herpes, right?

@106: both viruses share 50% of their DNA, they physical symptoms, if there are any are exactly the same. The treatment options (valtrex, acyclovir) are exactly the same. If I got a blister on my nethers. whether HSV1 or HSV2 it would be indistinguishable without a swab test. SO CLEARLY, this is not the same the same for the purposes of this argument.

I do want to point out that though a person can be sued in CIVIL court for not disclosing they have herpes and then giving or to someone. There is no CRIMINAL law against it. I also want to say it is VERY hard to prove it is a CIVIL case, if the complainant has no history of HSV testing and any partners they had around the time of acquisition have no testing history as well.

@89: " While I don't disagree with much of your post (and extend in return your respectfulness) I must be candid: I do find the transmission of a sexual disease to another person when the transmitter was in a position to prevent it, and doesn't, as a shameful act."

Are you arguing that a person that has an incurable STI should abstain from sex? Even if they got that STI on their lip because Grandma kissed them? Or got Herpes gladitorum from the wrestling team in Junior high? Or got Herpes Whitlow as a medical professional. Or is it just STI's that live in the boxer short area? Not being facetious, I genuinely want to know how you decide what is and isn't a sexually transmitted disease. The examples I give are all HSV1, which you are arguing is a sexually transmitted disease.

" If you fail to act to prevent harm to another due to selfishness, or negligence, or artful dodgery (as TBG did here) then that is a shameful act. We must be careful not to conflate having a disease, which is not shameful, with handing it over to somebody else when you could have avoided it, which is."

We don't know the STI status of the male partner. Wouldn't this then, apply to his treatment of her? If we are arguing what is a shameful act, We cannot do that in this situation, without examining the males shameful acts as defined by you.

I had the igG test. It's how I found out I had hsv2. Never had a symptom. Still don't. I am representative of 90% of the people that have herpes (HSV1 or HSV2). So before you go making personal attacks on TBG, go get the test. If you're positive for either HSV1 or HSV2 and you have no symptoms, you'll feel okay about it. Then go tell someone and let the stigma rain down. Deal with that for about a year, and then come back and make judgements on others. I don't agree with how the TBG handled her shit. It was bad. But I understand why she did it the way she did. I also understand that the 18 year old in question never had an IgG test, so he could already have HSV. We don't know who he stuck his dick into before flying to see TBG. Odds are whoever it was doesn't know their herpes status either. So, his risk of getting this from someone else? Pretty high. His risk of blaming her if he does have it because she is likely the only one that knows her status and disclosed, 100%. Her risk of completely being vilified in this thread by ignorant asshats that don't know their status either, 100%.
