More youngsters having unsafe sex: global study – Yahoo! News.
The World Contraception Day task force together with Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals have conducted a survey showing that more kids are having sex without birth control and condoms in France, the U.S. and the U.K.
They fault a barrier to unbiased information about contraception as the cause.
Why is this ridiculous? Just a sampling:
The source of the survey comes from those who sell birth control.
The products are misbranded as contraceptives, which the public defines as preventing fertilization. Unfortunately drugs classed as contraceptives have multiple mechanisms, some of which are frankly abortive.
These groups who promote sex among teens are complaining that kids don’t feel EMPOWERED enough to ask for contraception or negotiate such use with their partners. Yes, young girls often don’t feel that they have the upper hand when coping with older man who want sex.
It is proposed that the government will confer such empowerment upon the kids. (Don’t hold your breath for an end to sex slavery, and other socially maladaptive behavior.)
An example of ‘ harmful myths’ is given: people in ” Thailand and India believe that having sex during menstruation is an effective form of contraception”. FACT: this is an element of the calendar method, which would be more effective than the abysmal morning after pills, if actually used. Unfortunately both methods are more than useless for preventing STDs.
Don’t expect unbiased contraceptive advise from the makers of Yaz (black box warning for DVT and stroke) and Mirena (drug eluting, indwelling, coat hanger).
And remember these TSA people don’t change gloves.
Sanitary Towel Prompts TSA To Grope Sexual Assault Victim.
This woman failed the backscatter scan, due to her feminine hygiene product, and got the groping.
Portion of the Complainants email:
“These new scans are so horrible that if you are wearing something unusual (like a piece of cloth on your panties) then you will be subjected to a search where a woman repeatedly has to check your “groin” while another woman watches on (two in my case – they were training in a new girl – awesome).
So please, please, tell the ladies not to wear their liners at the airport (I didn’t even have an insert in). I’m a strong, confident woman; I’m an Army vet (which is why those camo liners crack me up), I work full-time and go to graduate school full-time, I have a wonderful husband, and I don’t take any nonsense from anyone. I don’t dramatize, and I don’t exaggerate. I’m trying to give you a sense of who I am so you won’t think that this is a plea for attention, or a jumping on the bandwagon about the recent TSA proposed boycott.
I just don’t want another woman to have to go through the “patting down” because she didn’t know that her glad-rag would be a matter of national security.”
The Muslims will be exempted from this, because their religion is respected by the administration.
Gonorrhea outbreak puts Alaska in uphill battle with STD | McClatchy.
Gonorrhea cases are up 69 % from 2008 to 2009 according to data reported to the CDC. Some attribute it to increased reporting.
Chlamydia often accompanies gonorrhea and frequently the choice is made to treat both ‘bugs’ if one is diagnosed.
More information comes from comments appended to the McClatchy artircle linked at the top.
“Redpoll”, reported at 13:50 11/26, from his Alaskan village about the population most affected by the STD outbreak:
“The destruction of Native culture by the government is startling to witness, and part of that destruction is the replacement of family by state programs. Every girl in the high school is placed on long-term contraception. Out-of-wedlock births hover around 80 percent. As a fourth-grader once told me about learning math: “Why should I learn this s***? White people are going to give me a house when I grow up.” (The smartest kid in the class, BTW.) Layer on that alcohol and drug use that is at unbelievable levels. Lording over everything is the attitude by outsiders with college degrees who seem to think that they have to “fix” these people, and almost always make the situation worse.”
“In that destruction and chaos, sexual promiscuity is rampant, and that, of course, leads to epidemics of STDs. Maybe if Native people were left alone to cultivate their own ways of living, knowledge, and culture, this would change.“
And that’s the rest of the story.
STD Test? There’s an App for That | The New York Observer.
Apparently a series of Phone App STD tests is in development in the UK. The goal is to allow phone users to plug a chip into their phone, urinate on its surface, and obtain a diagnostic result via the onboard phone app software.
STRAIGHT TO FACEBOOK WITH THAT UPDATE !!!! 😀
This article does not clearly delineate the virus and method of testing done to determine the supposed “results”.
U.S. herpes rates remain high – CDC | Reuters.
Since Herpes simplex I and HSV II can each be transmitted by genital and oral contact, ( with this situation mainly a result of widespread oral-genital contact), headlining statistics about only one type of virus is rather useless.
The one in six statistic addresses only HSV II infection, and not the very common HSV I infection.
The Swiss are coming……… with their extra small condoms for 12 year old adolescent boys.
Why 9 year olds? Although the age of consent in Switzerland is 16, it’s not considered a legal problem if two sexual participants are less than three years apart in age. So it follows that it’s considered OK over there for those latex armed, barely pubescent boys to go after those younger girls, prior to their puberty.
They’re just 10 or 20 years more messed up than America is.
Extra small condoms for 12 year-old boys go on sale in Switzerland – Telegraph.
Finger cot sales will plummet.
Well, rehabilitate the withdrawal method of course! So check out this ABC article which cites studies to “show” that the withdrawal method is on par with condom use for efficacy in preventing pregnancy.
Obviously it won’t help with other common problems…….
So with withdrawal rehabilitated to acceptability as a contraceptive method, then Plan B might still be thought of as “effective”.
Or maybe getting both of these into common usage will sell a lot more abortions.
