'Obviously deception:' STIs complicate consent definitions

An anonymous UNC graduate shared her harrowing story of being in an abusive relationship that ended with her diagnosis with an incurable STI.  The idea of full disclosure when it comes to STDs is not always an easy subject to bring up to a new partner, especially if open communication isn't strong. But the reality is that the law can be applied in certain scenarios when STI cases are not reported. That's why UNC and other agencies in Chapel Hill are advertising resources so students can know the facts and avoid getting hurt, both emotionally and physically.
