Don’t make fun of people with stds. Don’t use stds as a joke or insult. Don’t call people with stds “gross.” I don’t fucking care who it is don’t fucking do that shit.

me: don’t dehumanize people with stds. don’t make fun of people with stds.

anti sj tumblr: by not dehumanizing or making fun of people with stds, you’re romanticizing stds!

me:

Good post. Also stigmatizing STIs does nothing for prevention efforts, from a public health perspective. The more stigma attached, the less people even want to think about or talk about it

(Side note: calling them Infections instead of Diseases actually goes a long way towards destigmatization)
