  • So How Is The Sexual Revolution Working Out?

    So about a third of the US population has an STD at any given time. Wonderful! I wonder how many tax dollars are being wasted since we turned into rutting animals.

    ATLANTA (CBS Atlanta) While the national media focus on the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and the patient in Dallas, the CDC is reminding Americans that sexually transmitted diseases are an ongoing but hidden epidemic.

    In the United States, nearly 20 million cases of new STD infections are reported each year, reports Live Science. Since infections can persist for a long time, and because some victims are not even aware they have a disease and can easily spread it to others.

    Based on data from 2008, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the eight most common sexually transmitted diseases are: chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis B virus (HBV), genital herpes, HIV, human papillomavirus (HPV), syphilis and trichomoniasis.

    About 50.5 million current infections are in men while 59.5 million are in women, for a total of 110 million Americans with STDs at any given time.

    What does the spread of STDs have to do with the sexual revolution? If people more frequently used protection or had sex only with other people who were healthy, the new mores that become popular during the 60s could still go on without the epidemic. It's an issue of protective measures and specific partners, not merely "the sexual revolution."

      Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

        What? Of course the more sexual activity you have the more exposure you have to STDs. And we have more education than ever about protection and the number still keep going up!

          If you have many sexual partners and all of them are clean, you have no chance of contracting an STD.

          So? Education isn't what causes it. Besides, many don't have access to that education or the resources.

              You could. But then who'd prevent this place from regressing to a conservative echo chamber?

                But the fact is they are not all clean, and we are becoming more unclean as time passes on.

                Nonsense, and we all have the opportunity to abstain.

                  It already is one. All your posts unwittingly serve our cause.

                    Could you propose a practical method to know that all your sexual partners have no STDs?

                      Oh, there definitely isn't a feasible way to do so. I'm just pointing out that the sexual revolution itself, per se, is not what's causing the spread of STDs.

                        Sticking your hand in a hornets' nest is not what, per se, causes the stings.

                          Earlier, you claimed that "If people more frequently used protection or had sex only with other people who were healthy, the new mores that become popular during the 60s could still go on without the epidemic. It's an issue of protective measures and specific partners, not merely "the sexual revolution."

                          So, now that you've admitted that there isn't a feasible way to know if one's partners have STDs, given the proportion of people with STDs, many people under the new mores are having sex with unhealthy partners. Therefore, your conditional is true, but it's hardly relevant now, isn't it?

                            Protective measures are not 100% nor are they something people always think of in the 'heat of the moment'.
                            "The man from the yacht thought he was the first to find England; I thought I was the first to find Europe. I did try to found a heresy of my own; and when I had put the last touches to it, I discovered that it was orthodoxy."

                              Correct. Seer might not be wrong when he implies that the mores instilled during the sexual revolution were ultimately a bad thing. But it's fallacious make that argument merely on the basis of STD spread.
