Safe Sex Saved Lives
Here's a thing that has been making the rounds on the old Internet lately: Nobody uses condoms anymore. Or at least, they don't use them on Girls, and since Girls is basically reality television, probably nobody really uses them at all. When I was growing up, though, all anyone EVER talked about was condoms. It was the 90s. And so talk about safe sex was everywhere because of the AIDS epidemic. Now, no one talks about AIDS anymore and abstinence-education is a thing that exists as if abstinence is a thing that anyone—including priests or Disney stars—practices and its a joke. And while I'm glad that my children won't have the specter of AIDS hanging over their heads like I did, there's still that super-strain of gonorrhea and I don't think that should be fucked around with either.
