Use a Condom

Use a Condom

More fun statistics from the Center For Disease Control to make you want to make celibacy your new year’s resolution:

From Queerty:

Sexually transmitted diseases are having a ball at humanity’s expense. Not only have nasty bugs like syphilis and chlamydia seen a recent resurgence, but it appears HIV’s making more headway than some would like to admit: The U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention is mulling over when to release alarming new statistics showing that as many as 50 percent more people are being infected with HIV each year in the United States than originally reported by the government.

50%. If that trend continues, in about ten years, its gonna be hard for anyone to keep convincing Americans that AIDS is only an African disease. Instead of 60,000 annual infections, it would be more like 1.6 million.. which would be 1986 all over again and this time – sorry Republicans – it won’t just be the gays and the drug addicts, in fact, its young women who are the rising sector, likely many of whom who are taught by Daddy Christian and their health teacher that condoms are bad and pre-marital sex ain’t an option.

Seriously scary shit.
