Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, July 11, 2018

A little known sexually transmitted infection could become the next superbug unless people become more vigilant, experts are warning. Mycoplasma genitalium (MG) often has no symptoms but can cause pelvic inflammatory disease, which can leave some women infertile. MG can be missed - and if it is not treated correctly, it can develop resistance to antibiotics. It can be treated with antibiotics - but the infection is developing resistance to some of these drugs.

The Pakistani music video has nothing to do with sexually transmitted diseases.. it's about the dangers of drug abuse.

But the topic was so depressing, I thought who cares.

There is nothing to understand.

You have sex with someone who has cooties. And then you get the clap.

Don't be a man-whore.

Well since nobody can seem to keep their privates away from other people this is a big deal. Sexually transmitted diseases wouldn't be around if this hadn't ALWAYS been a problem. I don't care where you are on the political spectrum either - if you are so backward you have a sheet with a hole in it between you or in open marriages - the bottom line is most people are not monogamous.

This is getting crazy.

"In the US, resistance [to an antibiotic] came from men having sex with men because of pharyngeal infection," she added."

Roughly true, though.

Mind you, Pete grossly underestimates how few people are actually monogamous. I'm not a young man, and I have known a LOT of people. Not a single person in a monogamous relationship. The ones who THOUGHT they were, were VERY wrong.

-Not a single person in a monogamous relationship.

How do you know that? I know tons and tons of couples. I'm sure many are not monogamous...stats prove that.

But I can't say who and who hasn't been monogamous for sure. Some, yes...but most.....it's pretty private.
