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:

29.5...? For a website...? What the fxxk for! Herpes needs a sponsor.

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..
