    For the fourth year in a row, federal health officials report that there has been a sharp increase in sexually transmitted diseases in the U.S. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention tallied nearly 2.3 million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis in 2017 — an increase of 200,000 cases over the previous year, and a record high.

    "The U.S. continues to have the highest STD rates in the industrialized world," says David Harvey, executive director of the National Coalition of STD Directors, "and it preys on the most vulnerable among us."

    Harvey argues the root of the problem is that federal funding to prevent and control sexually transmitted diseases has dropped by roughly 40 percent in the past 15 years, which has choked off state and local programs. He called on Congress to appropriate $70 million immediately to address the crisis.

    "Here's a quote for members of the media," Harvey said at the press conference. "Ready? It is time that President Trump and Secretary [of Health and Human Services Alex] Azar declare STDs in America a public health crisis."

    Yeah, you know, we could wait for that to happen.

    In the meantime, we could, like, fund public health.

    It would comical for a guy who went in raw on a porn star to be advertising for safe sex practices.

    Amazing anyone thinks it's a funding issue.

    You sleep around or you don't.

    You wear condoms or you don't.

    Everyone knows the risks...I have zero sympathy.

    What do the good folks who just decriminalized intentional spreading of HIV in Cali, think of this crisis?

    Unless there's reason to believe that dudes who can't afford condoms are spreading all these STDs, it's not a funding issue. And unless there's some data showing that people are doing sexual stuff and totally unaware that disease could spread, it's not about education. We're a culture of short-sighted horndogs and the concept of shame has been thrown out altogether. This is what happens.

    Fuckin gross and embarrassing how so many people conduct their sexual lives.

    How is a Maga thing if it's a 4 year trend over a course of a 15 year funding decline?

    Seems like a byproduct of new I-phuck anything generation.

    similar ratio in the rise of STDs are happening in Canada

    Chlamydia has shot up year over year in Norway -- they even use it to their advertising advantages
