Antibiotic resistant gonorrhea and syph are real emerging problems and Harrop deserves all the shit he recieves for acting as if safe sex is an outdated concept. Of course, he already raves incoherently like a third stage syph patient so I'm not sure we could tell the difference even if he was infected.It's hard to believe any doctor would discourage people from practicing safe sex. AIDS isn't the only disease you have to worry about. Sure, herpes and gonorrhea and syphilis might not kill you -- but I still wouldn't want to catch any of those. Unprotected sex is for those in monogamous relationships who are certain that their partner isn't cheating. Not trying to be offensive to gay men like Harrop, but that would be a pretty small number who could safely ditch the condoms. A lot of gay men are sluts.
