Chlamydia helps young men feel more 'manly': Swedish study
The Local ^ | 8/24/09 | David Landes

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 they’ve 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...

The next stupid study will reveal that the most asked question by young 'manly' teens is "What does it mean when it burns when I pee?"

I wonder how an adult circumcision would make them feel, or testicular cancer?

More evidence of the end times Ping.

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.

I've seen other reports that STD’s are a status symbol in the homosexual community. They call themselves “bug chasers” and they seek out those they call “gift givers” who have the disease they are looking to acquire.

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...:)

“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.

Every time I hear of such things, I'm reminded of Proverbs 8:36: "But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul; all those who hate me love death."

How is the gold become dim!
how is the most fine gold changed!
the stones of the sanctuary are poured out
in the top of every street.

The precious sons of Zion,
comparable to fine gold,
how are they esteemed as earthen pitchers,
the work of the hands of the potter!

Even the sea monsters draw out the breast,
they give suck to their young ones:
the daughter of my people is become cruel,
like the ostriches in the wilderness.

The tongue of the sucking child
cleaveth to the roof of his mouth for thirst:
the young children ask bread,
and no man breaketh it unto them.

They that feed delicately
are desolate in the streets:
they that were brought up in scarlet
embrace dunghills.

For the punishment of the iniquity
of the daughter of my people
is GREATER THAN THE PUNISHMENT
OF THE SIN OF SODOM,
THAT WAS OVERTHROWN IN A MOMENT,
AND NO HANDS STAYED ON HER.

**************************************************

Which is to say, OneVike, why do you think that our Lord will be so generous as to give our nation the quick and merciful punishment allotted for Sodom?

Why do you wait for the “punishment to come”? The punishment may already be here. And it may be here for a long while.

Optimist!

Oh, I do not think we as a nation will see a quick judgment. I think we will slowly cook like the frog in the pot of warming to boiling water. I just used the Sodom and Gomorrah bit as an analogy of what the whole world can expect, not just America.

lady lawyer, posted a good comment in #20 that I would much agree with.

I agree with her here because I am also not a real strong advocate of the tribulation. (I don't know if she is or is not an advocate though) Now I may be wrong, but I just have my doubts about the evidence used by those who tout a tribulation that will allow for some Christians to miss all the σκύβαλον hitting the fan.

Sounds like homosexuals saying you need to have HIV to be “authentically” homosexual.

Maybe while they’re at it they can cut off a few toes.

That’s cool too.

Kramer enters.

Kramer: Well, I got gonorrhea.

Elaine: That seems about right.

Kramer: That’s what they gave me.

George: They? The Government?

Jerry: No, no. He’s pretending he’s got gonorrhea so med students can diagnose
it.

Kramer: And it’s a waste of my talent. It’s just a little burning. Mickey, he
got bacterial meningitis.

George: I guess there are no small diseases, only small actors.

The other three start laughing.

George (leaving): Alright that’s it for me. Good night everybody.

Elaine: What was that?

Jerry: Showmanship, George is trying to get out on a high note.

Kramer: See, showmanship. Maybe that’s what my gonorrhea is missing.

Jerry: Yes! Step into that spotlight and belt that gonorrhea out to the back
row.

Kramer: Yes, yes I will! I’m gonna make people feel my gonorrhea, and feel the
gonorrhea themselves.

New scene.
Mt. Sanai Hospital. Kramer is on the table surrounded by med students.

Student #1: And are you experiencing any discomfort?

Kramer: Just a little burning during urination.

Student #1: Okay, any other pain?

Kramer: The haunting memories of lost love. May I? (signals to Mickey)
Lights? (Mickey turns down the lights and Kramer lights a cigarette) Our eyes met across the crowded hat store. I, a customer, and she a coquettish haberdasher.
Oh, I pursued and she withdrew, then she pursued and I withdrew, and so we
danced. I burned for her, much like the burning during urination that I would
experience soon afterwards.

Student #1: Gonorrhea?!

Kramer: Gonorrhea!

The lab breaks out in spontaneous applause as Mickey turns up the lights and
Kramer takes a bow.

It’s probably more seen as proof of being sexually active than anything else.

This kind of behavior isn’t expressly mentioned in the bible, but it does fit in with the general theme of calling evil good.
