Overheard

On On Point today:

"I was raised by a wonderful conservative Catholic family and we did not promote sexual promiscuity... I had a handful of partners, and I'm stunned that I have this virus. I don't know how I got it or by who because I had so few partners."

Sigh. I mean no harm to this woman. She is in a very difficult situation, and I hope her mistake doesn't prove to be fatal, but this kind of statement reveals the naivete that's been hammered into our young people's heads by the "safe-sex" crowd.

Later in the show, we get to hear Katha Pollitt opine about how "disturbing" it is that some parents have an "obsession with keeping young people away from sex."
