I ACTUALLY NEED TO OWN THESE.
I am reblogging these from myself again because….well I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to truly convey how much I loved this specific horse design by Lisa Frank when I was little. Or how much I love wedge heels.

HIV Has Been Cured in a Child for the First Time
HIV Cure: New Drug ‘Vacc-4x’ May Become First Functional Cure Against the Virus
The Man Who Had HIV and Now Does Not
This is HUGE news, and of course no one is talking about it because it is not a part of popular culture. For the first time in the history of the world, there is a possible preventative cure for one of the most deadliest viral diseases to have entered the human gene pool. There is hope for those who have been diagnosed with a disease that may have given them only 20 or so years to live. This breakthrough in the science/pharmaceutical community means that other viral diseases and genetic mutations that were once incurable are now on the table for complete eradication. I’m absolutely seething that no one is talking about this on the news 24/7.
and while this is hella important, herpes is getting complex to the point there is no cure or no way to work with it.
I really need both of these to go viral.
!!!! THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT !!!!
^^^^^^^THANK YOU PERSON WHO POSTED THIS FINALLY
HIV is not something that just gets cured overnight. The articles above are actually really fascinating and it’s obvious that we’re making enormous strides in HIV research, but we have BY NO MEANS found a “cure.” If anyone actually bothered to read the entire article past the word “cure” they’d realize that none of them are actually making that claim. They’re talking more specifically about treatments that reduce viral loads and could in the long run provide a functional cure, but which are still undergoing clinical trials. Which is all AWESOME, but not a cure yet.
Random celebrities on twitter typically aren’t a great source of info. It’s always good to fact check and learn stuff.
