Planned Parenthood's pornographic Teen Wire website, which answers such typical teen questions as, "I'm a girl who likes to fantasize that I'm a guy having sex with another guy. Is this normal?", reminds us today, Valentines Day, is also National Condom Day!
National Condom Week is February 14-21, and February 14 is National Condom Day. Condoms have been protecting people against sexually transmitted infections since the 16th century, and have been preventing unwanted pregnancy since the 18th century. And in the 21st century? Condoms are all the rage.
I'm not sure "all the rage" is a good term to use. It reminds me of all the STDs that in actuality rage from one person to the next because condoms are such inadequate protectors against VDs (what we used to call STDs - short for venereal disease - a groovy verbal blast from the past in honor of Valentines Day, I mean National Condom Day) and pregnancy.
Not that Planned Parenthood would lie. Although in my celebratory mood I'm reminded that Consumer Reports rated Planned Parenthood's condoms the two worst of 23 it tested in 2005. Not that there is a connection between that and the fact PP is the United States largest abortion provider.
Oh, don't mind me. I'm just a fuddy duddy, although not unlike PP's duddy condoms, I suppose.
Nevertheless, National Condom Day!
Thanks for the link to Teanwire. Great website, and I'll make sure my kids see it.
Interesting question from that girl, imagining she is a guy having sex with a guy. Sounds pretty harmless to me.Posted by: Gary at February 14, 2007 12:06 PM
I think it's interesting that Gary couldn't spell "Teen Wire" properly, even though the correct spelling was right in front of his eyes as he was typing his comment. Maybe somebody that stupid isn't the best judge of what is harmless and what isn't harmless.Posted by: Mark at February 14, 2007 3:10 PM
Now, now. None of that. Gary's trying to yank chains. Don't fall for it.Posted by: Jill Stanek at February 14, 2007 3:26 PM
Just a simple typo. I'm not "that stupid" but I do type poorly.
And although I probably was trying to yank chains, I did find the website to be pretty good.Posted by: Gary at February 14, 2007 7:02 PM
Any adult who thinks "teenwire" is good for kids to read is definitely someone that you would not want NEAR your kids, especially alone.

What a great column. Short, sweet, and to-the-point, with just enough sarcasm. I love it. Keep up the good work and God bless!
