Cure Coming Soon

Well I visited Wikipedia today and saw they're asking for donations...

If everyone reading this donated $10,

we could end the fundraiser today.

Please read a personal appeal.

$690K raised -

Today's goal: $1 million!

$11.5M raised -

2011 goal: $29.5 million

I wonder why it's so hard to raise donations for HSV. I mean people are doing it for a fucking website but not for a disease. :madd:

What herpes needs is a face, a famous face that comes forward and unites everyone to work towards funding a cure not work towards asking the government to do it..

What likable famous person has herpes? I know Anne Heche has it from when she was a kid because of her father I believe :(

Do you think her story would compel people to donate?

THe only way I can think is to appeal to peoples' sense of pity. Show people saying that they got it from their first partner, or by being raped. Just trying to prove that not everybody that has it got it from sleeping around. OR, we can use the numbers to instill fear. For example, 1 in 4 adults women has herpes....what will the statistic be when your daughter becomes active?

they dont care.. thats not a good enough apppeal. pressing for mandatory testing and treatment on the grounds that people not knowing what they have contribute to it's spread provides the government with a justification and our community the oppurtunity to increase our numbers by incorperating the clueless and those who want to front til the last minute.

there are new people being born every day without it. somebody would rather wait for them to get the age of consent then bother with us. we gotta get those supposed 1 in 6 americans to wake up to this virua, and prey one of them is of prominence. if the president had it or some oil rich arab sheik or a kleptocrat and his O.B.s would not subside you had better believe he would fund research with every dime he has stolen from his state's treassury. If Buffett or Gates or Trump or even his kid had it we would be in business.. Even right now though the community is big enough if you would all get serious and if you also stayed in contact with the companies you chose to aid.

p.s. When people react to rape badly, atleast a sizeable majority of men its not for the reasons you believe. its a form of jealousy and a tamer variation of the male sense of entitlement. they see a rape vic like this, shes damaged good when before she was one of the greatest comodity in life. its like if a collecter had wanted a car that he had idolized from his younger day, the car had been discontinued, only about 6 were still known to be in existence, and the prize for one was 15g. If the car had been promissed to him and by some means between the date it was promissed and the date he went to receive it someone had tboned one side of the car or beat it up with a louisville and the car's price then came down to 300 bux the collecter probably wouldn't want it anymore. even with only five others in the world and this damaged car still able to run just fine, he wouldn't want it anymore.. he might even be able to take the dings out but he still wouldn't bother with that job.. he'd go for the other 1s even though they are impossible to get. thats how some men view rape victims and thats how more men would view one with herpes..

      Having HSV-2 has not bothered me at all for casual sex. I'm just avoiding sex during outbreaks, on suppressive therapy and using condoms every time with casual partners. Since my outbreaks appear on top of my penis, even during an outbreak the risk is minimal if I put a condom on as soon as I take my underwear off.  I guess it might be a slightly different case for a girl as if you have external lesions around your groin you could still infect someone even using a condom. And of course, condoms can break, which has happened to me over 10 times and caused myself to get infected in the first place.  I see it as a much more difficult now having a serious relationship, because I can't feel much with a condom on and really want stop using them. However, I don't want to put my new girlfriend to any risk - I would feel terrible if I infected her.

      Does anyone have experience about people's reactions to Herpes in Asia? Personally I live in Thailand where I also caught the virus as a condom broke 4 years ago.  Unfortunately I infected my ex-girlfriend with HSV-2. This was just after I had caught the virus myself and we had sex before I noticed and realised what it was. In the beginning, a local doctor told me I have just hurt my foreskin with my jeans' zipper and the tests came as negative. After getting tested later it came as positive.  Anyways, my ex-gf (well educated, professional, 26 years old then) she had no idea what Herpes was in the first place. She didn't really care too much about it and didn't bother to get tested. During our 3 year relationship we kept having unprotected sex as usual and she never had any issues until at the end one day. She had a very minor outbreak once and nothing after that (lucky her, no like myself who gets terrible symptoms non-stop). I know she has a strong immune system, because she was never sick despite myself having bad colds quite often. In any case, she could not care less about this virus and didn't mind at all.

      I've seen a lot of hysteria surrounding Herpes in Europe and the US. What has been your experience in South-East Asian countries like Thailand? Do people perceive HSV-2 as a worrying disease?

      The full article is behind a paywall but you could write the the authors and request a copy.

      The jury is still out as there needs to be additional experiments. Editas' results make me believe dosing was insufficient among other issues.
