Some things are just off-limits when it comes to conversations…even if that dialogue has turned into an argument.
And a woman shared a story on the “Am I the *sshole?” page on Reddit asking whether she was wrong or not for calling out her friend about her s*xual behavior.
Let’s see what happened…
AITA for telling my friend she got an STD from sleeping around?
“I was hanging out with a friend of mine and a group of her friends. We were all talking and having drinks, and the topic of dating comes up in conversation.
For some background information; I’ve only had one boyfriend (I’m 24) we dated for 4 years, and broke up about a year ago. I’m mostly a loner. I’m fine with being single right now and have no interest in dating at the moment. My friend knows this.
She starts lightly teasing me in front of her friends, pretty much calling me a spinster. She “dates” a lot. Every week she tells me about two or so guys that she’s slept with. This kind of started a pile on, where everyone was teasing me, and giving me unsolicited advice. I tried to placate it, but she kept bringing the conversation back to me and my (lack of) a sex life.
Eventually I got really heated, and just said “so is your crotch still burning or is that cleared up? What did they say about that? Was it guy 104 or 105 that gave it to you?”
Like three weeks ago she called me crying to take her to the clinic because she had painful itchy blisters on her groin, turned out to be herpes. I did it without judging her at the time.
She quickly stood up and left the table. I tried to follow her to apologize and she went off about me outing her to her friends. She was telling me how I was the only person she trusted, and she couldn’t believe I would act that way. I tried to remind her how she and her friends were dog piling me, and she said it was just jokes, I didn’t have to react that way.
We are obviously not speaking right now. Was what I did justifiable self defense? I know I probably wouldn’t have done it without liquid courage.”
Here’s how folks reacted on Reddit.
This person said that everyone involved in this story sucks. Plain and simple.
Another reader said that everyone is at fault here, but the woman who wrote the post is the bigger *sshole.
Another reader argued that the woman went way too far with her comments about her friend.
And this Reddit user made a good point: medical issues should never be used against someone.
Finally, this person said that the woman made the wrong choice by making the woman’s issues public and that she is clearly immature and untrustworthy.
What do you think?
Was this person wrong or justified in their actions?
