This topic is nothing new yet something still going on. And, it will continue to take place.
It just no longer is startling anymore after years and a decade or two.
Now it is common or expected depending on particular behaviors and lifestyle choices.
Of course, age does not exclude one from contracting a sexually transmitted disease.
There are many people, younger and younger walking around with curable or incurable sexually transmitted infections.
I am talking about from the ages of nine on up.
Aside from youngsters who are responsible, who learn from their errors, who attempt to be more careful in the long run- there are the unscrupulous ones.
Those who have accepted their conditions yet are bitter, full of despair, and do not care.
Some are even nonchalant without resentment, but with the attitude of indecency.
People of any age can have the frame of mind where they feel they have a disease that they will freely give away to as many people as they can, especially if it is a deadly disease.
They figure they are dying so they will take others with them.
Some even think or believe if they infect another person that they can be with them or always go back to them in a relationship.
Then, there are the plain crazy ones who are low, dirty, and crude as an everyday part of life.
