Miscellaneous Comments to ABC and The View

Dear Joy Behar: Your small minded, ignorant and insensitive comments about people with herpes could be hurtful to people who take you seriously. Both those who have and those who don't have herpes. You ought to be ashamed of yourself and make an apology. ~Rob

Dear Joy Behar: Your story has certainly traveled the world. Firstly, thanks for the opportunity to give us the "SILENT COMMUNITY" a chance to voice our opinion regarding the IGNORANT ATTITUDES that we have recently heard about on "THE VIEW" in the USA. Like thousands of other people, I didn't ask for HSV1 or HSV2, oral and genital herpes. I'm sure you are well aware of the high herpes statistics by now. Australia is reported to be as high as 1 in 6 to 8 people who know or don't even know they have Herpes. Sadly, because of this IGNORANCE, many people cannot face the rejection and jokes, they choose to keep silent about their health status, and spread Herpes further into the community. Some people just retreat and live a lonely life, while others live with constant depression and huge emotional scars. The majority of us learn to live with this "minor irritation", but like divorce and other relationships, we suffer for years because of the lies and hurt that was inflicted upon us by someone we thought we loved!! Honestly, next time you kiss someone, DO YOU EVER THINK OF HEPATITIS C?? I believe it's much worse than Herpes. Next time you sleep with your partner, do you always practice safe sex? Is your partner being faithful or honest? Herpes is mostly invisible, we don't walk around with huge dripping sores hanging off our genitals. Countless people, including myself, have been misdiagnosed for years, it certainly wasn't washing powder or beach sand in my bathers!! I'm pleased to be able to voice my views. I hope by now you understand some of the pain and anguish that your comments have caused in our LARGE community. ~Lesley from MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA
