Apparently, according to University of Skovde researcher KINA HAMMARLUND, while some young people see themselves as unlucky, others undergo a process in which they learn from their mistakes and are more careful in partner selection. But there's a third group, a group that consists of only men between the ages of 16 to 30, that view their contraction of an STD as a trek into manhood.
Young men who contract sexually transmitted diseases like Chlamydia or genital warts think of them as nothing more than a "badge of honor". I'm guessing that no one told them that Chlamydia, if left untreated, can leave a man sterile. What's manlier than not being able to have children?
What's also noteworthy is that when it came to one-on-one time with KINA HAMMARLUND, the 50-year-old researcher, the women were at ease talking to her, but the men weren't. When it came time to have discussions in groups, the women became uncomfortable but the men opened up significantly.
Also, women are still embarrassed to ask men to use a condom, while men are afraid that if they pull out a condom too soon, the girl will trip out and leave. KINA HAMMARLUND admits that she is incredibly disappointed in the findings and claims that this proves that we still have not overcome gender stereotypes.
I'm still reeling over the STD as a necessary initiation into manhood. How did people get so stupid?
