Skip to comments.Chlamydia helps young men feel more 'manly': Swedish study
Posted on 08/24/2009 9:38:00 AM PDT by OneVike
Young men who contract sexually transmitted diseases often view their afflictions as an affirmation of their manhood, a new Swedish study shows.
Upon learning theyve been infected with a sexually transmitted disease, some young people simply see themselves as unlucky, while others undergo a maturation process which leads them to be more careful in their sexual habits, according to midwife and University of Skövde researcher Kina Hammarlund.

It isn't "maturation". It is "education".
But if they were more moral to begin with, they (and their partners) may never have contracted an STD in the first place.
You can abort a baby but STDs, not so much.
Perhaps they should be forcibly circumcised: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2322916/posts
This has to be one of the dumbest conclusions that I have ever heard...
Methinks they have been taking Nietzsche a bit too seriously.
I wonder how an adult circumcision would make them feel, or testicular cancer?
Need to bring back those old training films.
yes, I remember those old military black and white movies...sure worked for me...and after 50 yrs still make me think....
Yo, Lars, mah bruh, yo got de chlym?
With other male friends slapping on the shoulders and offering encouraging comments about success with the ladies, young men who contract diseases such as chlamydia or genital warts can come to view their infection as a badge of honour, rather than a serious health problem.
In the end times false men will think of evil as good, and good as evil. Let me give you an example: homosexuality in some of the churches is accepted. Marriages of two of the same sex in some of the churches and states are accepted, and contracting sexual diseases will be looked upon as a badge of honor, not shame.
Did not GOD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for these type of sins? Does anyone think God has changed His mind? If GOD does not punish us for the immoral lifestyles we live, He would then have to apologize to those of Sodom and Gomorrah. However, we all know He will not be apologizing, because the end is nearer than people realize.
Thanks for the ping!
This is not one of those “I’d hit it” “NOT GUILTY” “Oh my lost youth cause my teacher was a 70 year old nun”, threads is it? Only partial sarcasm.
LOL...see, the military wasn’t all bad...:)
I remember those training films...
perhaps it is the only way thos men know to prove they are heterosexual.
Okay, good to know I wasn’t the ONLY one to have that kind of longstanding effect!
Of course, we couldn’t show those NOW, because it might be traumatic to them.
I think that was the whole point...:)
Stupid is not the word; or maybe it is.
“However, we all know He will not be apologizing, because the end is nearer than people realize.”
I agree that there are many signs of the times. But, I think, before the end comes, those who are trying to keep God’s commandments will be subjected to real persecution and suffering at the hands of the godless people in power. Those who have no standards hate those who still have standards. They are not content simply to coexist. I think they will be permitted to act on that hatred before God steps in.
