Wishful thinking? Study them for a few years?
You get real selective or abstain.
Stupid woman. You have been on one of your rolls the last day or two.
You're an idiot.

The control of STDs requires knowing how people within cultures behave, what kinds of structural barriers they face to obtaining nutrition and health care, and producing accessible and affordable health services, prophylactics and education. STD transmission is enhanced by religious bigotry, discrimination, poverty and gender inequality. The biggest payoffs to reducing STDs lie in making women economically independent from men - check any World Bank or IMF report on the issue.

People like you, with your gross, uninformed blathering add to the problem. Abstinence campaigns do much more harm that good - they're like covering your eyes to avoid the oncoming truck rather than getting out of the way.

But you won't read the World Bank reports, will you? You'll just make more fiction up and tell us how it really is, won't you Moonbeam?

Look, I know sex is a powerful force. But so is infectious diseases. Hepatitis being one of the most prominent out there can easily be transmitted. Not to mentioned the possibility of unwanted pregnancies among heterosexuals.
People need to know the truth. The truth is condoms offer some level of protection but they can tear, become porous, and fail. If people want to take those risk then ok. As long as they know all the facts.
The fact is abstaining offers the highest level of protection. With 50,000 new HIV in the United States alone, and estimated 19 million new STD infections occur each year (CDC).
Only in first world nations does HIV enjoy higher prevalence among homosexual men - and that's because of discrimination.

HIV/AIDS travels on lines of discrimination. Worldwide, working age heterosexual women have the highest prevalence rates of HIV/AIDS, followed by their infected children and heterosexual lovers.

Well, the best way is to be you. Failing that, we can broadcast your image to the masses every night, instantly killing their collective sex drive. A personally dictated (by you!) monologue about magnets can be added to the image, but for that we would need to build more convents.

"This paper outlines aspects of the HIV/AIDS epidemic scenario and the complexities associated with it. It reveals the socio-epidemiological patterns of the epidemic and in doing so identifies the populations with the greatest and fastest growing rates of infection. From the data presented it is evident that the pattern of HIV/AIDS in developing countries in sub-Saharan Africa in particular is unique. The pattern emerging in South Africa follows closely. The features of this pattern are as follows: the epidemic is mainly a heterosexual epidemic, the rates of infection in the general population are very high and the percentage of HIV-positive women is greater than men. An additional unique feature is the young
age of onset of infection for women. These data demonstrate the need to focus our attention on young African women and the factors underpinning their predicament. In order to understand their position we examine the long standing relationship between social inequalities and health in general and further invoke the concepts of vulnerability and social capital to shed light on the position of women in the epidemic.
Within the constraints of limited and problematic statistical data, the paper argues that a mixture and complex interaction of material, social, cultural and behavioural factors shape the nature, process and outcome of the epidemic in South Africa. It concludes with recommendations for the way forward."

There are parallels between fundie Christians
and the fundie Islamist aka like the Taliban in treatment of women . Just the fundie Christian has to contend with the laws of the west which overrule any theocratic thinking.

But if the fundie christian were left unchecked I'd bet there would be little distinction between the two.
Like these hard liners "just retorts" and the other who who likely pitch all the gay people in a concentration camp.
It sorta makes me sick of religion altogether, but I know most aren't like that.

Just the fundietards. Then we have the evolution is a lie , science rebellion , but they are almost a comical bunch who twist around and kiss their own asses in effort to prove science is wrong. We live in a strange world full of freaks!

But see it was none of business to know how he did it. It is beyond our feeble little minds. Us humans think we are terminally unique. Guess what. We are not. We are little specks in the infinite, large cosmos.
