Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are bad and evil. They refrain us from doing what we human are so good at. They prevent us from perfecting the very skill and tool which is required for some companionship and send us back in the ages when “restrain and abstain” was the norm.
So maybe you were high that night and went for it without any protection or hooked up with a person who welcomed you into the STD zone. Or maybe the same syringe went through a group of friends and you didn’t have the heart to say no in fear they would cast you out of the brother or sisterhood.
This is the reason the majority of American teenagers have STDs.
According to a new report by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) young people aged 15 to 24 are the reason so many chlamydia and gonorrhea microbes are living even in the glorious age of medical and health research. They say that in 2015, 75% of American teenagers had STDS and 90% of syphilis cases reported were in heterosexual and homosexual men.
The report goes on to inform us that this public health threat is real and serious because it represents real people, real health concerns and “a real price tag,” in their own words.
Now STDs is something James Bond didn’t have to worry about but even the actors who played them had to worry about it and after all we are just common people, not someone even impersonating a hero.
Maybe STDs keep us in check from humping around like frivolous rabbits. Whatever the reason, the experts have good reason to believe that STD screening should be a standard part of medical care.
They also say we should talk openly about STDs, (but not advertise it, otherwise they might start attacking us from behind the TV screens). We should also get tested regularly and reduce the risk of STDs devastating our lives by using protection.
