Oh this title better bag me some hate mail, if it doesn’t then I don’t know what will.
Now I’m sure not all feminists or even all “proud sluts” (which is actually how they refer to themselves) are out there having unprotected sex, but they are having sex and usually lots of it it…with different men (or women). Say what you will about the morality of that, but you can’t argue the dangers of it.
STDs are a fact of life ladies, whether you get Chlamydia or Herpes or a case of Super Gonorrhea (my own name for it) sleeping around only increases your chances of this.
I don’t know if you know this, but condoms are not actually all that effective against STDs other than HIV. I mean, they are better than nothing, but you are still playing a pretty risky game with your life and your reproductive organs.
Now most STDs are not life threatening, at least not in this day and age (Syphilis, 100 years ago, was a different story) , but now we are getting superbugs.
This Super Gonorrhea was first spotted in Japan in 2011 and now, like a slow, but dangerous zombie infection, it’s spread to cases in Hawaii an California (and, for some inexplicable reason, Norway). I guess my decision to not pick up a one night stand in Cali when I was there on vacation was a smart one.
This particular strain is less like a typical STD and more like the Bubonic Plague to be honest.
“That’s what’s kind of scary about this. We are at lows in terms of infections, but this strain is a very tricky bug and we don’t have anything medically to fight it right now.”
The new strain of gonorrhoea resists existing drugs and the NCSD has asked the US government for an extra $53m (£34m) in funding to prepare.
It claims it is a case of “if, not when” a drug-resistant form of the disease arrives in the US, and that if action is not taken now it could potentially cost around $780m (£501m) to treat.
“This might be a lot worse than Aids in the short run because the bacteria is more aggressive and will affect more people quickly,” Alan Christianson, a doctor of naturopathic medicine, told CNBC.
“Getting gonorrhoea from this strain might put someone into septic shock and death in a matter of days,” he claimed.

Feminists, like Moe from Jezebel.com, who think that condomless sex is so freaking awesome that they are fine with risking infection in order to make like bunnies without a rubber, may be in for a nasty surprise with this beginning it’s spread through North America.
Interesting fact, did you know that the number of new STDs in American grows by about 20 million a year? If only our job market grew that quickly.
Here’s a piece of advice for those with the proclivity for promiscuous sexual activity.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you. You may think that abstinence is an “unrealistic proposition” for you, but you aren’t an animal in heat and you have self control. With this sort of plague beginning to spread, you might want to invest in a little more “me” time and a little less “picking someone up at the bar” time.
