Look, I know this last season seems like a retread of the previous season, but I think some of the writers were distracted and talking about Picard and Lower Decks instead of...
oh, sexually transmitted diseases.

Gotcha.

Why are we funding STDs? We should fund the eradication of STDs, instead.

Why would anyone want to fund STDs?

Who is it surging among?  The antimask maga chuds?  Of course.  If they wont wear a mask they wont wear a rubber.  Maskers believe in science and know that barriers reduce disease transmission rates.

And only maga have contact with sore ridden or pus discharging people.  Dont have sex with people who have sores or disgusting discharge.

Dont be maga.  Wear a rubber, you filthy animals.

Not sure why this is being greenlit given how low the risk is for the average Farker.

Seriously considering the surge started the 1st year of covid.
Ok locked down and farking but chance are you were locked down with someone your already farking.

That and during a pandemic farking random people should not be as easy as usual.

Let them scratch and burn for a while, no funding need just some horse paste

So, is subby saying that we need more funding for abstinence only STD prevention?

People are still having sex. This AIDS thing's not working.

One piece of horseshiat from "Abstinence Only" sex ed is the counterfactual notion that condoms are not effective in preventing pregnancy and STIs.  It should come as no surprise that people who learned that bit of misinformation as children are also possessed of the idea that masks do not prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Is this a worse problem in red states?

Everyone knows that STDs are Gods punishment for having sex outside of wedlock.

They didnt learn shiat.

Maga and their spawn are incapable of learning and are preprogrammed to shiat out as much spawn and scum as possible.  They didnt learn that condoms are ineffective or effective.  They cant learn.  They are at best an insectoid race here to exterminate humans and humxns.  Their biological drive is to destroy the earth and make the earth a place for their overmasters to rule.

Anybody who doesn't use a condom, outside of state mandated reproduction, is a maga and is spreading disease.  It may be bacterial or viral, or the disease of their own vile spawn.

I think one of the reasons there was such a push back against the HPV vaccine is that it was one of the few STDs that were not prevented by condoms.

Hey, I'm doing my part!

Maybe the thinking was that the people who don't take precautions against STDs are not likely to be cautious about Covid, so maybe Covid can finish them off.

STDs are on the rise? *checks article*

Plan B? Pregnancy is now an STD?! That's one way around contraception funding.

Our chief medical officer told us last year that we need to stop focusing on covid and start focusing on other medical issues running rampant like syphilis. It was used to justify listing measures. Funny how nothing's been done about it or even mentioned about it since...🤔🤦‍♀

//really hate where I live
//unfortunately, nothing better is nearby so moving won't help

'effective' is a subjective term.

But if you look at things like the rate at which females get pregnant in "real world usage" of condoms, then remember that a female can only get pregnant during a tiny widow of time each cycle, it's pretty easy to see why limiting sexual partners is still 'more effective' than using condoms.

Ah yes, the "just dont have sex method.  that has never worked in any society because people like sex.
