Dating site for genital herpes
Let me be very clear: I will never endorse an STI dating site. STI dating services would make great hacking targets in an online landscape where vigilante justice is all the rage and people with STIs are unsympathetic victims (whaddup, Ashley Madison). But here’s the big, huge, important fucking reason I’ll never support a herpes dating service: these products contribute to herpes stigma.
A booming app industry in Silicon Valley means that new STI dating services pop up every few months, and a cursory Google search means that their marketing team, or their founder, or their intern, quickly discovers me. As time goes on and stigma lessens, there will be less of a demand for these services.
The website claimed that they need to view your profile and make sure everyone is real.
All in all, this herpes dating site did a good job in users' privacy protection.
They don’t necessarily need to be infected themselves.
Members on this dating site were very active due to it's free.When you round up a vulnerable and isolated population, create a community space and fail to moderate it or protect your users, you create a dangerous environment.These folks would be better served by a support community than a dating app.They say to the rest of the world that we belong apart, that we are less than, that we are a hilarious Positive Singles punch line. Maybe some people use them as a transitional tool before re-entering the wider dating sphere, and hey, cool, whatever. But they are just as often predatory environments where newly diagnosed men and women (but usually women) are bombarded with attention.Like other dating services, they can be unsafe spaces for women where harassment and coercion thrive.
