Why don't teenagers and young adults who are aware of AIDS take the threat of HIV seriously? This is my first time blogging so I posted on Facebook to get answers from my peers.
I got some answers back:
- “Cause they nasty, and cause these females want to talk to what ever grimy a*s N*gg* as long as he on 4’s (big shiny rims). And I wouldn’t be surprised if they were born with AIDS.”
- “But what if the Rims crack?” someone asked in reply to the comment.
- “Then it’s on to the next N*gg* and Disease…Nasty”
These women who are writing seem shockingly blunt, but it’s reality. In the urban world, females think “he has a nice car, he has money, and he’s most likely known” so the girls want to be a part of that lifestyle. The women do things on his terms, including having unsafe sex. I think that mentality is very common in urban communities. Young women like to see glamour because that’s what they see on TV: their favorite rapper with big rims in the video. When they actually see that in reality, they do whatever it takes to be the female at his side.
But I want to say “Stop. Think, Ladies. Glamour and style in a guy still does not mean that you can’t ask the guy to wrap it up.” I remember in high school there was this really cute guy that I had the biggest crush on. He was so cute and he dressed so nice and he always had a nice clean hair cut. He was totally my type. We went on a few dates and after a while I thought I wanted to become intimate with him until he thought he was going to have sex with me without a condom. I told him, “Why don’t you just go to the store right quick to get one?” He replied, “that’s doing too much.” So I said, “well we are not going to do anything at all then” and I asked him to leave because I don’t know what he did before me and who he did before me. Don’t get me wrong, I did ask about his past relationships, but I did not fully trust his promises. Later, I heard from a former girlfriend that he had given her chlamydia. Thank God I didn't back down because if I was gullible in that situation I might have chlamydia. Kudos to me! So I think if the guy says no then maybe he is not the one for you. Even if you feel like you’re in love, just get tested. Maybe there should be an STD testing stick that you can buy at a drug store or something, kind of like a pregnancy test but for sexually transmitted diseases.
