DISCUSSION

I know a girl who is very verbal about her opinion that people who get STDs are "whores." When loudly judging others' sexual morality, she fails to mention that she contracted a strain of HPV that causes genital warts herself. Everytime she's loudly yelling about how so & so is a "whore," I want to yell, "STOP PROJECTING! We all know! You weren't a whore when that guy gave you HPV, and neither are the women you're judging!"
