It's amazing that you guys think that *I* am the one who is unrealistic when *I* am the one providing the real world empirical evidence to back up my claims. Meanwhile, you all ignore the reality and insult me for my trouble.

I may have told this story here before. I remember watching some awful daytime talk show years ago, and the topic was teens with STDs. Some kid was up there talking about spending years in promiscuity and now having herpes or something and worrying about never being able to find a partner again. Some wonderful black woman got up from the audience and said "How you gonna get up here and 'spect people to feel sorry for you when you done did this to yourself. You disrespected your mama and yourself and your body. Don't cry now cuz you nasty."

I guess it must have stuck with me, because I still say it to people sometimes.

Don't cry now cuz you nasty, MC.
