26% of teen girls have a sexually transmitted disease: digging into the numbers

Lindsey Tanner of the AP reports

  • The study size is 838 teenage American girls, an analysis of girls aged 14-19 from a 2003-4 government health survey
  • Projected population of teenage girls in the USA is 12.3 million, with 3.2 million infected
  • Teens in the study were tested for human papillomavirus (HPV), chlamydia, trichomoniasis, and genital herpes. These are the 4 most common sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
  • They were not tested for more dangerous STDs: gonorrhea (the clap), syphilis (pox), hepatitis B, or HIV/AIDS. They didn’t test for pubic lice (crabs) or mononucleosis either.
  • 26% of girls in the study have a STD
  • 18% have HPV
  • 4% have chlamydia
  • 2.5% have trichomoniasis
  • 2% have genital herpes
  • About half the girls in the study acknowledged having sex
  • Some girls define sex as coitus only, not oral-genital activity, much like Bill Clinton
  • Among girls who admit having sex, 40% have a STD
  • Nearly 50% of black girls had at least one STD
  • About 20% of white and girls of Mexican descent had at least one STD

The startling statistic for black girls (50% infected) shows a population in peril. Something is very, very wrong in their world. I suspect it is the destruction of the black family and the popularity of gang-bangers, drugs and thugs in youth culture. Gramsci and the sixties hippies have a lot to answer for.

The incompleteness of the report also raises questions. What is the prevalence of gonorrhea, syphilis, and HIV/AIDS? These are dangerous diseases, far more dangerous than trichomoniasis or genital herpes, and they were not addressed at all.

  • According to Wikipedia, between 3 and 18% of sexually active girls have gonorrhea, and 0-3% have syphilis. If we use a 50% rate of sexual activity for teenage girls, as they have self-reported in the CDC study, this works out to an additional 1.5%-9% with gonorrhea, and 0-1.5% with syphilis, for a total infection rate of 27%-36%.
  • According to AVERT, 3% (1,434) of HIV infections in the USA were among teens up to age 19. This works out to an infection rate under 0.02%, or 1/50th of 1%.

Thus we discover that the actual, overall infection rate could very well pass 1 in 3 teenage girls. More and better research needs to be done to determine the actual infection rates.

Demographic Jihad in Saudi Arabia

The Demographic Jihad is not only a plan to settle the civilized countries of the world with Muslims in order to transform them into totalitarian Islamic states ruled by Sharia, but also is used by Muslims against the “wrong type” of Muslims.

Andrew Hammond writes:

The Ismaili Shi’ites of Najran, bordering Yemen, say they had successfully petitioned King Abdullah two years ago to halt settlement of up to 10,000 Yemeni tribesmen in housing projects built for them on large tracts of land surrounding Najran city.

But a protest letter sent last month to the governor of Najran province, Prince Mishaal bin Saud, complains of marginalisation and says plans to settle another Yemeni tribe must stop.

“The king and a number of decision-makers promised the citizens of Najran that settlement would stop … it appears that settlement is a deliberate and extensive project,” it says, referring to thousands of Najranis it says have long been overlooked when seeking similar state largesse.

Backup of story here. The story gives Saud a fellow named Said the last word.

“It’s a form of racial discrimination. We don’t have services,” said Said, 30, pointing to a map on the wall of a deserted office outlining plans for new housing units.

“There are families here who cannot get a new house or a legal deed to the land they live on. Even the children of the newcomers are given pieces of land.”

Swallowing Swords

Hans Rosling gave a brilliant statistical talk in 2006 and another in 2007 that both exploded a lot of myths about the first and third world. Conclusion: The first and third world that were very distinct in 1950 have converged in 2007 with the exception of Africa and a few other exceptionally poorly managed countries. The 2007 talk also features visual proof that the impossible really isn’t, when an academic statistician swallows a bayonet.

Moscow Women getting hitched to Muslim Men

From Paul Goble at Window on Eurasia:

Vienna, August 21 – A significant fraction of ethnic Russian women in Moscow are choosing to marry Muslim men — at least in part because the latter typically do not smoke or drink, want several children, and are prepared to work to suppor t their families, according to researchers at the Russian Academy of Science.
During the first half of 2007, there were more than 60,000 marriages in the Russian capital, a quarter of which were between native Muscovite – typically an ethnic Russian woman — and a citizen of a neighboring country – more often than not a man from Azerbaijan or Central Asia.And partially as a result of this trend – and not just the Kremlin’s current pro-natalist policies — Russian demographers say, the number of births is increasing: During the first six months of this year, there were 48,225 newborns in Moscow, some 2438 more than in the same period a year earlier

The article goes on to hit pretty hard at ethnic Russian men.

Olga Kurbatova, a senior scholar at the Vavilov Institute of General Genetics, noted that “girls in the capital see in migrants precisely the model of a real man: in practice, they don’t drink, especially Muslims like the Chechens, Ingush and Azerbaijanis,” they work hard, they are able to support a family and they want children.”“Many of our [ethnic] Russian men,” she noted, are “exactly the opposite” with regard to each of these highly valued characteristics.

In other words, Moscow’s women won’t marry Russian men because they (Russian men) are lazy drunks who can’t support a family and don’t want kids. Any Russian men out there, now you know what the problem is and it’s up to you to find a solution.

In France, Arabic is the Language of Love

No hard data, just correlations, but check out these two tables from Mark Steyn concerning the rising fertility rate in France and why it does not disprove his book America Alone.

Take France and its neighbors and rank them in order of healthiest fertility rates (2005 official Eurostat figures):

1) France
2) Netherlands
3) Belgium
4) Switzerland
5) Austria
6) Germany
7) Italy
8 ) Spain

Now rank them in order of highest proportion of Muslims (no central source, but compiled from national data, European Muslim groups, UN and State Dept figures):

1) France
2) Netherlands
3) Belgium
4) Switzerland
5) Austria
6) Germany
7) Italy
8 ) Spain

Hmm. (source)

Not a ringing endorsement of French fertility, or of the French libido for that matter.

Maybe they need to look at American inspiration.
