This story really needs to wake the youth of American UP. This study is saying 25% of girls age 14 to 19 has a STD. Wake up Kids. I wonder what percentage has HIV?

That's incredible. I wonder what percentage of boys with STDs are? Why didn't they give those statistics?

They said it was the first study of this kind....a sexist study if you ask me. Maybe they don't want to know how the boys will fare in the study.... or maybe they didn't even want to participate.

I keep expecting to see that Caligula III is going to run for President the way our society is going…and he’d probably win. How do you explain that to someone. "Oh by-the-way Bobby, I've got huge warts on my putty tat"

Atlanta's AJC newspaper reported decades ago that 50% of black males in Atlanta tested positive for syphlis. There is no cure for that deadly disease. The disease can kill within 20 years and is characterized by enhanced sex drive and disappearance of visual symptoms while still infectious.

The only thing to do now is to be better informed. There's a tv show (ABC 20/20) with John Stossel....AGE of Consent.... that deals with the
teenage sex issues. The number one disease by the way is HPV virus... which causs genital warts and cancer... and there is a vaccine for it. Also one being developed for the boys.
This is a serious health issue, and will affect young people the rest of their life.
This show will also deal with sex offender laws and how underage teenagers having sex are in that.

This article is designed to make us feel that we are responsible and that we should give more money to buy more condoms for shools.

The statistic is bogus. It only includes one school in a very nasty part of the country.

It does not include a lot of schools.

It is not a nation wide study, and it does not take into account that numbers are tweeked.

What is it they sat about statistics? "There are lies and there are damned lies."

I don't know why femails myself either. But I would have thought if someone wanted to study that they would at least take a cross-section of both sexes to (at least) compare percentages against results. In effect it proves what the statistics say (obviously) but the statistics are worthless without males being in the stat's.

Maybe these girls never go to the dr for it.
Anyway this is a new era, the virus is now HPV and there is a vaccine for it.
