YDI for having one night stands in the first place
#40 while some people are smart and safe about sleeping with a ton of people, many aren't. That's where you get the lovely folks who spread STIs around because they're too selfish to keep it in their pants/panties or wrap it up. So their lifestyle can hurt others. And OP, leaving a stranger in your home unattended is, as a few FMLs have shown, quite stupid.
It isn't an "unneccessary condemnation and stigma." If you're sexually promiscuous you've had more chances to contract an STI, especially if you haven't used protection. There is education available on the matter, but the fact that people might have to seek it out for themselves is apparently a huge hindrance. And there is NO EXCUSE for sleeping with someone and not telling them you're infected, especially "oh! I'm afraid of being judged!" Infections aren't free to spread because people are afraid of them, but because people aren't afraid ENOUGH of them to use protection and maybe a little discretion when it comes to number of partners.
That's because you don't catch them from CHOOSING be sexually promiscuous and spread them by CHOOSING not to have safe sex, and they aren't necessarily life-threatening or disfiguring to oneself and whoever they spread it to. Even if you were right about most people not utilizing those in general, if they don't it hurts no one but themselves (minus bad driving). There is a lot of info available on sexual health, whether it be through your school/university, the internet, planned parenthood, etc. Also, I was talking about the people who DO know they're infected but continue sleeping around. There is no good excuse for that, and those who do it are terrible people. Of course they'll be looked down upon! If you choose to have many sexual partners, you should be getting yourself checked routinely. If you can't or don't want to do this, you shouldn't be taking the risk and putting others in danger as well.
Well ok, but have you seen pictures of genital warts? That looks pretty disfigured to me, and they're one of the more common infections. Condoms don't necessarily protect from genital warts. So if someone sleeps around with many strangers, they are far more at risk of catching something than someone who isn't promiscuous because they've had more chances to do so. And no, someone doesn't have to be sexually promiscuous to catch an STI, but it seems a likely scenario that someone who didn't have as many sexual partners caught it from someone who did.
No kidding! You can't leave a stranger in your home. If you have to get up early, kick him out! I would say "YDI" for that reason, but I'm not sure exactly what harm came from this situation. So you had sex with a university student... is that a problem? I can't see anything bad in your FML. If you had gotten robbed, that would have been a clear "you deserve it." As it is, you got lucky he just got up and went to class.
What the hell were you thinking leaving a stranger in your flat? While you were gone, he could have tripped over your cat, stolen your cake, and emptied your apartment! Dumbass.
LOL! It must be fate ♥
