Cyrus Sullivan Outs STD Carriers with Website
Cyrus Sullivan has created a site called STDCarriers.com, where he hopes to out STD carriers before they have a chance to infect more people after he himself contracted genital herpes from a girl who chose not to share that information with him prior to sexual intercourse.
Sullivan’s hatred comes from the fact that he himself was infected with Herpes by a woman who didn’t disclose the fact upfront. The first person named on his list is the girl who infected him, including full name and even a picture. The rest of the site so far only lists celebrities who are publicly known to have STDs, but he’s asking others to submit names to the site.
According to local media reports, the site isn’t being well received in Portland, with a number of people quoted against what Cyrus Sullivan is trying to do, primarily on the basis that any names listed could be false, and the outing of people falsely may be devestating to reputations in an online age.
The database allows people to submit photos, names and personal details of anyone who supposedly gave them an STD - though one obvious risk is that people may post false information. In such a case, in order for you to refute the claim and have your name removed Sullivan requires that you first send medical records that prove you are indeed STD-free.
I do find it curious that despite Sullivan's 'best' intentions to warn people about deceptive partners, however misplaced and malicious his tactics are, he hasn't actually listed himself on the site. Last I checked, herpes was incurable - where's the public service announcement warning the public against Sullivan?
