KATT just lost a listener

What a shitty way to start my week...sent this to KATT today.

I listened to your morning show today (Monday August 21), which I rarely do. Within 15 minutes of tuning in, Rick and Brad offended me so much that I will never listen to your station again. It all started off rather innocuous...a conversation about things men can do to make women happy. One of the things listed was a man coming up behind his woman and putting his arms around her. Somehow, this brought to mind the Valtrex commercials. Rick and Brad ( I don't know which one so I'm blaming them both) said Guess what, you just ran up and put your arms around a SKANK with herpes. With that, I turned off the radio and fumed all my way to work.

I know you know the statistics, who doesn't? Thanks to GlaxoSmithKline, we are all familiar with Genital Herpes, and that 20% of the American population is infected with it, and that it's incurable. But just to put it in more perspective for you, imagine that you just offended TWENTY PERCENT OF YOUR LISTENERS. Not all people infected with herpes are gutter crawling, promiscious whores. Some of us were infected by unfaithful partners, some were infected by , some of us were infected on our first sexual encounter. And yes, some of us were infected by foolish, unsafe behaviour. But does that make us skanks??? Did you know that men rarely show symptoms and sometimes don't even know they are infected? They go along their happy little lives, banging whatever woman is stupid enough to sleep with them, ruining someones life. It doesn't even matter whether or not a condom is used because it's still not 100% safe.

As a woman who has lived with HSV2 for almost 10 years, I can assure it's not fun. It's on my mind 24/7. And just when it has escaped my mind for a split second, someone who thinks it's funny reminds me. Do you know how that feels? It feels like a VIOLATION. For me, it ranks right up there with a black person being called the N word. If you crossed me on the street, or met me in a club, you would have no idea that I have herpes. I'm not ridden with sores, I don't dress like a prostitute, I look pretty damn normal.

I don't wish herpes on my worst enemy. I only wish it on the writers of NBC comedies and morning show radio show jackasses.
