THIS IS IMPORTANT.
Please take a minute to SIGN THIS PETITION against MAXIM, who recently posted an article on their website titled “5 Diseases We Wouldn’t Mind Having”, where they highlight chronic conditions that are “cool” and/or “good to have.”
Thought I’d share this with you all.
They’ve updated it to remove Ehlers-Danlos but there are still 4 other conditions up there and I can’t imagine how anybody could think think was a good idea?
“We’re complete assholes.” Yeah, we all agree. But taking down one condition and leaving up the other four doesn’t make it any more acceptable or appropriate. Maybe if you turned the article in a different direction, it would be taken a little better. “Here are a few lesser known conditions that have serious drawbacks, no matter how cool you may think they sound at first.” Something more along those lines would be better since articles on more popular sites would be a good way to spread awareness.
