Skip to comments.Welcome email from Ohio State student newspaper - DFU, guard yourself against genital warts
Posted on 02/16/2008 3:17:06 PM PST by doug from upland
Wanting to cause some trouble for Hillary before the Ohio primary, I have been sending messages to reporters and talk show hosts. This afternoon I signed up for and posted a message on the site of the Lantern, the Ohio State University school newspaper.
I received an interesting welcoming email greeting. It shows us the state of our culture.

I guess it means to run from the girl in the picture when you see her on campus.
I bet she gets very lonely there
Who’d have guessed she had genital warts? But there’s something not quite right about that smile.
What in the world is a genital wart????? I will have to go look that up. That is a new one.
Oh My Goodness!
Genital warts (or Condyloma, Condylomata acuminata, or venereal warts) is a highly contagious sexually transmitted infection caused by some sub-types of human papillomavirus (HPV). It is spread through direct skin-to-skin contact during oral, genital, or anal sex with an infected partner. Genital warts are the most easily recognized sign of genital HPV infection. They can be caused by strains 6, 11, 30, 42, 43, 44, 45, 51, 52 and 54 of genital HPV; types 6 and 11 are responsible for 90% of genital warts cases. Most people who acquire those strains never develop warts or any other symptoms. HPV also causes many cases of cervical cancer; types 16 and 18 account for 70% of cases; however, the strains of HPV that cause genital warts are not linked to the strains that cause cancer.
Genital warts often occur in clusters and can be very tiny or can spread into large masses in the genital or penis area. In women they occur on the outside and inside of the vagina, on the opening (cervix) to the womb (uterus), or around the anus. They are approximately as prevalent in men, but the symptoms may be less obvious. When present, they usually are seen on the tip of the penis. They also may be found on the shaft of the penis, on the scrotum, or around the anus. Rarely, genital warts also can develop in the mouth or throat of a person who has had oral sex with an infected person. The viral particles are able to penetrate the skin and mucosal surfaces through microscopic abrasions in the genital area, which occur during sexual activity. Once cells are invaded by HPV, a latency (quiet) period of months to years may occur. The latency period just means the HPV virus is in an incubation period. Having sex with a partner whose HPV infection is in the incubation period still leaves you vulnerable to becoming infected yourself. In other words, just because one can’t see the genital warts, doesn’t mean they are not there. HPV virus can last from 3 months to 2 years without a symptom. That causes the increase of HPV infectors and sometimes you cannot track down who was the source of the infection.

Thanks. Now we know there are at least 54 kinds of papillomavirus.
“Hooking up,” “friends with benefits,” “f buddies,” etc. have caused an explosion in these problems. There is a price to pay if you play.
“This thread is useless without...”
Then again, maybe not.
We told you Clinton would fight back!
If I only exchange bodily fluids with myself, am I OK?
Parents of kids in elementary school and junior high can thank one of our former presidents.
I taught at OSU for over 20 years. The PC environment is sickening. Diversity simply means that women and minorities can perform at a lower level than white males - and then file lawsuits anyway.
So, doe this surprise? No. That is why I left.
OK, so I made it up. BTT.
That smile looks a tad Etruscan if you ask me.
My wife was on Pogo.com earlier - she likes to play solitaire (go figure); saw the same ad.
No but you will grow hair on your palm.
Genital warts? You mean Hillary?
webmd.com says there are more than 100 types of this virus.
“Of the 100 HPV types, about 60 types cause warts on areas such as the hands or feet. The other 40 or so types of HPV are sexually transmitted and are drawn to the body’s mucous membranes, such as the moist layers around the anal and genital areas.”
“How common is HPV infection? About 20 million people in the U.S. are infected at any time, according to the CDC. And three-fourths of sexually active people between ages 15 and 49 have been infected at some point in their lives, according to estimates from the American Social Health Association.”
The survey found that:
* 19% of women 50 to 59 were infected with HPV virus
* 27% of women 20 to 24 were infected with HPV virus
* 45% of women 14 to 19 were infected with HPV virus
Ain’t love grand?
Never go to a microbrewery with genital worts.
Probably, but you’ll eventually need glasses. . .;-)
Do you get ‘em from “messin’” with hoppytoads?????????
