According to a new report released by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) the number of cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis reported in the United States reached all-time highs in 2016.
In the U.S., there were 1.6 million cases of chlamydia and 470,000 cases of gonorrhea last year.

The increase has been seen in all genders and sexual orientations.

It’s 2017. I’d 99% of the people I know, are therefore, abominations in the eyes of God.
obviously it should be titled education level not intelligence.
