Single Women no Longer Care About HIV Running Ramped

Beauty doesn't show HIV

Just because she is pretty doesnt mean she doesnt have something
Just because she is pretty doesn't mean she doesn't have something

I was reading an article about a month ago that astonished me completely that women no longer have a fear of getting HIV. Single women were not using protection and having as many as six partners. This has baffled me since HIV has not been irradicated the last time I checked and that as many as 1 in 4 adults have an STD.

Where has science failed to teach these young women that HIV is running ramped and it is still very easily contracted. Is using condoms so bad that you would be willing to risk your life and the life of others just because you think your beneath contracting a deadly disease?

I can not for the life of me understand how any woman who is not in a monagmous relationship could think it's ok to sleep around and not think she is going to get something or give something to her partner.

Ladies I am here to tell you HIV is very real and if you're willing to risk your life to have unprotected sex and one night stands then something is wrong here on so many levels. I am in no way letting men off the hook either because they should be using protection also.

Just because there are better drugs to help people with HIV live a longer life why would you even want it? Why don't your respect yourself enough? Has time and no new news about HIV made people think it doesn't any longer exist?

Get tested, stop having unprotected sex, and for God sake respect yourself. The STD's that are showing up now, some are not even curable. HIV is alive and real and it still exist and is running ramped in America. Don't let one night of feeling good ruin your life forever.

How does one know for a certainty that s/he is in a monogamous relationship? So many people no longer respect their marriage vows and often their spouse is the last person to know. I remember when Donahue had a stage full of people who had gotten HIV from their spouses who had cheated on them and they didn't know it until their HIV was diagnosed and traced to their spouse and beyond that spouse to others . . .

Sad that women really don't care anymore or have enough respect for themselves. Its sad that anyone could want HIV

It is horrible, it seems sex is blinding. Kids under 10 having kids, what can we do? You have girls not even teens yet filling malls looking like hookers, and you know the parents know this. Good info, maybe it will help someone. Voted up!

Yes the schools are a big problem because they are not allowed to teach anything anymore but abstinence which in my opinion is a big downfall with kids whose parents are to ashamed to talk about sex with their children. It's a sad thing that people have to be plagued with a disease that is preventable through protection. All I can do is educate the public. Working in healthcare all my life I have seen the most horrible things happen to people and women for not protecting themselves.

Cheryl, I totally agree with you. It's like playing russian roulette. I wonder if proper sex education at school and especially at home could help. Unfortunately, sex education is taboo in many households, so can you really blame the kids for experimenting? Keith, you're totally right, men should protect themselves against sexually transmitted diseases as much as women.

I like this. Something for all women to think about as well as men.
