Lil Dicky on destigmatizing herpes

Recommended Posts

It's refreshing to see a celebrity speaking truth about the absurdity of herpes stigma in our culture (his herpes rant starts at 9:10).

He says he was trapped in a "mental prison" for months thinking he might have herpes or some other STI. Turns out his test results came back negative, but the mindfuck affected him enough that he goes on a 3-minute long rampage about how herpes is just blown too far out of proportion in our society.

He unfortunately still uses the "clean" label to describe himself (clean/dirty are still stigmatizing labels), but hey, overall this is a solid rant for the good!

Way to go, Lil Dicky.

I can relate. I thought I had herpes for a year. I am so thankful for this site and the support of Adrial and my sister convincing me to get tested.I think everyone should get tested and know their std status.
