Suzy Sock Puppet BS: Reinforcing respectful 'boundaries' (1096* d) RE: BS: Reinforcing respectful 'boundaries' 21 Aug 13


Don't be insensitive, Ian. I thought you were in health care. Therefore, you should know that what men go through in regard to sexual health, is NOTHING compared to what women go through (including obstetrical care). Talk about invasive!

However, I am willing to go through a few minutes loss of comfort and dignity to make sure I'm in good health. Breast exams and mammograms are lots of fun too. But that's the price you pay for catching breast cancer early. It could save your life.
I have gone regularly for pelvic exams with all relevant testing since I was fifteen years old. That's 36 years.

If I didn't have the sense of social responsibility to make sure that I'm in good health and not transmitting anything to anyone else, then maybe I should be "criminally assaulted" as you put it. You might not be promiscuous yourself, you don't always know what your partner has done or is doing. I have a girlfriend who caught chlamydia from her own husband. Nice way to find out he was unfaithful huh?

About the other, don't be naive. Power corrupts and biological warfare is real. Don't you understand the notion of extraneous groups of people, people you can throwaway? At least I'm not one of those religious lunatics who believe HIV is God's retribution for being gay.
