msnbc ^ | 3-6-10 | By Darryl Fears

WASHINGTON - The District will become the first city in the United States to distribute female condoms free, part of a project that will make 500,000 of them available in beauty salons, convenience stores and high schools in parts of the city with high HIV rates.

City officials said the distribution could begin within the next three weeks in parts of wards 1, 2, 3, 6 and 7, where a study showed that large numbers of African American heterosexuals engage in risky sexual behavior that could easily lead to infection.

Good. Female condoms are more expensive and a little harder to find. I’m glad women are protecting themselves. They are the unfortunate recipients of this virus.

Officials said they are turning to female condoms to give women more power to protect themselves from HIV and sexually transmitted diseases when their partners refuse to use protection.

Just say no.

That's racist!

But it's free!

People in DC will do nearly anything to get something “free”. Ed Meese once said that about “free food” at a gathering, and he was excoriated by the American people for his “uncaring” bluntness.

What is a ‘female condom’? An aspirin you hold between the knees?

Washington, D.C.:

1. Highest AIDS/HIV rate in the United States

2. Highest infant mortality rate in the United States.

3. Second or third lowest educational performance rate in the United States (consistently)

4. Second or third highest murder rate in the United States (consistently).

One of themost veautiful cities in Continental North America is a third world s##t hole thanks to Liberal DemocRATS.

DC is really ahead of the pack these days — female condoms, homosexual marriage, binding the hands of the Catholic Church’s outreach to the poor. Way to go, IDIOTS.

I’m glad women are protecting themselves.

These simpletons are only giving themselves a false sense of security. It's a fact that that thin layer of latex, whose use you are encouraging, is porous and won't prevent the transmission of HIV.

LOL!!! You’re serious?
Its not a “fact” at all.
Only lambskin condoms don’t prevent HIV and are not distributed to protect one from disease.

Ever used one of these things? The application is nearly comical and so is the execution. I remember laughing alot, but not the most erotic time I ever had...

I’m just not with it. Don’t have a clue as to what a “female condom” is, can’t imagine how it fits or even works.

It's far too personal a question to ask in any forum but I wonder what a report from a user would sound like. These things can't be comfortable.

The bit of engineering sense I possess says that the male condom is the model that works better.

Still better would be committed long-term monogamy but very people ask my advice on this topic.

Romanist Kool Aid will get you killed unless you truly commit to abstinent. To the large sector of the population that is not abstinent, especially in poorer communities, condoms can be a life saver.

Condoms are not a 100% preventative, but they do reduce the risk significantly, especially for AIDs, Syphillis, and Gonnorea. If these folks are going to have sex, better to give them latex than give them the clap.
