Another Product Of Sex Revolution: Super Gonorrhea

“We’ve run out of ways to treat your infection”

FORBES – You want 2021 to be super. But not in a super gonorrhea type of way.

When making your bucket list, don’t include anything on this WHO superbug list. “We’ve run out of ways to treat your infection,” ranks up there with “no one can fly the airplane” or “the hull of the cruise ship that you are on is made out of pickles” on the list of things that you don’t want to hear.
