Roses are red, violets are blue...

... but apparently 10% of men think that the sexually transmitted disease chlamydia is a flower. Oh dear. And this despite the fact that it can cause infertility in both genders.

Which is why I bounced with glee today on learning that a new initiative is to be launched to encourage chlamydia screening not only for women but also for men.

If you're a man reading this, check it out. If you're a woman, check it out and then tell your man.

I amazed that you would openly make such a sexist and ignorant comment.
Having had Chlamydia I can tell you that it is extremly painful for both men and women.

Do you realy believe that so many man are so uninformed?

If so then you need to change your surrondings or friends.

Do not lump all of us men in one catagory.

It would have been easy for me to say that because I contracted Chlamydia from an Itailian women attending a prestigous Boston area womens college that this must be how all women that attend these colleges are, dispite her three masters degrees.

We were two consenting adults. Our own fault for not acting more responsibly.
