As another blogger, Anti-Gnostic (Google that) says,
"Now if NPR really wanted to be ahead of the curve, they'd have titled this piece, The Clock Is Ticking On The Sexual Revolution. Surely that would generate some hits and lively discussion?
"How about don't have sex with everybody in sight? Get married and stay married? Scientists are baffled. What do we do?"
And keep in mind as the HHS Contraceptive Mandate take efective, and every reproductive-capable female (age 12-52) legally resident in the United States gets the option of free! free! injectable and implantable endocrine disruptors, a.k.a. "FDA-approved contraceptives," the rate of STD transmission is gonna skyrocket.
How do I know this? Because it always does.
P.S. It’ll cripple, blind and kill the babies, too.
If I were Sandra Fluke, I'd be worried.
“If this was a person, this person would be incredibly creative,”
Give that bug a handclap! Clap?
Chick-Fil-A probably has a prevention method but it would only rile the liberals and perverts.
Any individual bacterium that develops immunity to a single antibiotic will rapidly propagate.
It is hundreds of thousands to tens of millions of times less likely for a bacterium to simultaneously have genetic mutations that provide immunity to two different antibiotics.
Aeons ago, I had the distinct pleasure (hah!) of watching a VD movie (16mm projector type movie). It pulled no punches, sugar-coated nothing, left nothing to the imagination.
What has been seen, cannot be unseen.
That movie may well have saved me from doing something stupid on a few occasions ... God bless the folks who made it.
The left says this is good for us. It’s all part of women’s rights.
Unfortunately the women will end up sterile.
There’s another “drug” available though rather passé for this generation...
It’s abstinence and having relations with the person you marry and only that person...
Odd coming from a baby boomer who was told “if it feels good, do it”.
How about this headline:
Irresponsible gay sex by immuno-depressed queers main cause of spread of drug-resistant gonnorea.
So isn't it sort of like a free contraceptive and sterilization thing? What's the problem? Infertility and nonviable pregnancies are a key government program! Marketing hook: "Contract gonorrhea - for the Environment!"
I didn’t know what it looked like and didn’t know it went all over the body. That is really bad.
The further back in time you go to examine gonorrhea, the worse it gets.
**WARNING: EXTREMELY GRAPHIC AND GROSS**
For example, one of the early symptoms for males is the formation of pustules in the urethra. This inhibits the flow of urine, and often causes intense pain while trying to urinate. “A burning drip”.
As late as World War II, it was (jokingly) remarked that the way to determine if a man had gonorrhea was for him to clench a quarter between his teeth and urinate. When he finished, if the quarter was still in one piece, he did not have gonorrhea.
Left untreated, eventually these pustules would cause scarification of the urethra. In some instances, or with multiple infections, this scarification became so pronounced that it could cause the penis to permanently bend or twist.
In some cases, the pustules were pronounced enough to inhibit urination at all, a dangerous condition that required the doctor to use extreme measures to burst the pustules. One such technique was to lay the penis on a hard surface, like a table, then for the doctor to hit it a very hard blow with his fist, hoping to rupture the pustules.
Around World War I, a medical technique was devised to accomplish this opening of the urethra. First the patient was catheterized, not an easy task past pustules, and then their bladder was filled with an acidic solution. Then the catheter was removed. Then a specialized medical instrument was used, called “the umbrella”.
It was a long, thin metal tube that would be inserted up the penis past the pustules. Once in position, a screw on its base would be turned, and on the far end several small blades would umbrella out. Then rapidly, the tube would be pulled from the penis and the blades would tear open the pustules.
This hurt enough so that the patient usually fainted. When they awoke, they would have to urinate the acidic solution, which would often make them faint a second time, but would clean out and sterilize the now ruptured pustules.
After the advent of antibiotics, these medical instruments fell into disuse, and the only references to them remain in very old medical texts.
University student populations are nearly saturated with such diseases (remembering published university STD statistics).
More proof as to how I benefited by coming of age in the 1950s. I came down with The Clap in Korea in 1961. An injection of penicillin and I was good to go! Apparently, I wouldn’t be so lucky today.
And wait until HIV mutates into a super-virus.
