The Public Rejects Compensation for 'Surprise STDs' [INFOGRAPHIC]

SodaHead Infographics 2012/06/19 18:13:05
A couple of weeks ago, a woman reportedly won $900,000 in court from a guy who gave her genital herpes. According to the report, the man failed to inform her of his disease and refused to use protection. But we wanted to know if the public feels that victims of "suprise STDs" should receive compensation, or if they should still be held personally accountable for neglecting to use protection. Check out this week's infographic for details on how people responded. Let's dive!

    I'm still furious about the lack of thought most people have on this issue.

    While I don't disagree that the woman was foolish for not using protection, I also see that what the man did was with malice. He knowingly exposed her to an illness. Thats criminal.

    It seems like most people really only care about branding the woman with any label - that of "slut" - for having sex after four dates. This without knowing what happened during those four dates and having no concept of what its like to be around the age of 50.

    I see a lot of hateful and ignorant internet trolls out there who care more about attacking a woman than saying one thing about a man who would lie about an illness and infect someone with it.

    I am telling you the truth.Sorcery has taken the world for a ride with their chemical concoctions not meant for any living thing. Vaccsinatons that have substances a thermometer would use that is banned, and a sustenance a taxidermist would use. Formaldehyde. A mad scientist would give that calling it good. That is what you are trusting in.

    This is a classic case of circumstances here.

    Yeah, it'd be nice to get compensation if they were never WARNED the other had an STD to begin with... however there are so many loopholes, it's just too complicated to go through with making compensation mandatory.

    The one that gave the disease may have not even known they HAD a disease. Or they can just lie and say they didn't know.

    While I can see where people are coming from - I would be PISSED if I'd contracted an STD from some idiot who wanted to get lucky, and if I weren't told, then yeah, it is his fault, even though it'd partially be mine. Hell, I'd want to cut off his pork sword so it never happens again.

    But above all that, there is a lesson here... PROTECTION. USE IT.

    Even if you THINK you know everything about the partner you're about to get it on with, get the saddle on the horse before riding it, if you know what I mean.

    "PROTECTION. USE IT. "

    Main thing.

    You mean protection like a condom, right? Have you ever used a condom before? The way it works is the man puts it on, not the woman. YES she could have insisted that he wear a condom but again, she was being honest and open with him- i.e. being a kind person. He is a predatory bastard and a liar and it was his intention to infect her. So he would likely have either sabotaged the condom or he would have let it slip off if his rough sex wasn't enough to break it.

    The woman can put it on the man. Some women enjoy that part.

    Umm they do have female condom that one can purchase.

    "He is a predatory bastard and a liar and it was his intention to infect her." If that is the case there should be criminal charges as well not civil.

    Yes perhaps in this case, this guy may as well be a bio-chemical predator. His intentions were vindictive, and the evidence is against him.

    HOWEVER, to compensate EVERY. SINGLE. CASE of STD transmission, it would get WAY out of hand. I hate to say it, but this story has opened up a new can of worms. Imagine the ideas idiots will get now.

    For the record, by protection, I mean protection. Not just condoms. In the 21st century, there are more than just male condoms, ranging from female condoms and diaphragms to spermicides; when an STD is transferred, the one who transmitted it is NOT the only one at fault unless it is a case of RAPE.

    Sex is sex ,and is good ,but you can't tell mr this guy didn't know he had the disease .No ,I think it was plain dirty to do that to someone. He hid the fact ,no doubt in order to swim in the poontang. that's dishonorable in my book.

    There are so many fear giving lies floating around that if they were solid there would be no atmosphere to breathe. Those lies make humans like yoiu think violent thoughts. All now find a good U,C,S,Chiropractic practitioner www.upcspine.com. Get a nutritional almanac.They have instructions as how to help- the body replace the flora in the intestinal tract after anti bionics are used. They are unfortunately in the food humans eat. That needs to change.

    ?????????????????????????????... ,I don't know what that's got to do with someone possibly passing STD's to others ,and my outlook on this is that the guy wanted to grouse in the goodies ,and didn't want her to be turned off by his condition .If that makes me violent ,you have a weird perspective .

    STD's are a reality ,look at what's going around ,and some are deadly ,just look ad AIDS.No ,I can't hide my head in the sand. Sex is a pleasurable thing ,and some of the responses on this border on the edge of ignorance.Just look at some of the ridiculous things said on here. Someone who spreads disease by hiding the fact is indeed a criminal.

    You are believing Medea hype. When you communicate with the gays they will confirm that the humans refusing to take those drugs are alive, and the ones taking them are dead. Wake up. Pills made with chemicals not meant for consumption will be harmful to the body. Why don't you get a book on drugs that tells all of the contraindications of those drugs. It reads like all of the bad things Satan wants to happen to humans.
    WWW.upcspine.com. Evidence, scientific studies, 48% improvement in the immune fungtion that had the adjustment with the Laney adjournment device. The humans who had a fake adjustment got worse. That is because internal imbalances got worse. Atlas Orthogonal is a device doing what a hand adjustment can do. Must positioned device properly to make a good adjustment. Doctors don't have a clue as to what a U,C,S, can do. I have observed the measuring technique of my U,C,S Stephen Duff who is renown world wide for his technique called the Duff method that is taught at Sherman Collage. Your body that dies killing Gods gifts is criminal. One day God will do away with death.
