Hillary Clinton just slammed the stigma surrounding sexually transmitted infections

Ella Dawson expected to find a Netflix bill in her Brooklyn mailbox. She discovered instead a letter from Hillary Clinton. The 24-year-old blogger, who writes often about living with genital herpes, figured it was a standard campaign mailer. She once donated $50 to Clinton.

She tore open the envelope. She froze. Did the Democratic presidential candidate, one of the most famous figures on the planet, just thank her for talking about sexually transmitted infections on the Internet?

“I am so grateful to you for not only speaking out against the stigma,” Clinton wrote, “but for also taking a courageous stand against the ridiculous, but very real, barrage of hate you received online.”

Just had a bout of herpes simplex. What was the vector? My sister got a lip tattoo.

So much for the sexually transmitted part of the equation.

Me, on the other hand, got it from a kiss. Well, more than a kiss, over 40 years ago.

If I had to do it over again, knowing what I know now, I would do it again.

And more.

Small price to pay for a ticket to paradise.
