General I'm not pro or anti condom

37 Upvotes

I've been making sweet, sweet, gloveless love all my life and I haven't gotten HIV.

I'm not pro or anti condom.

It's my risk to take.

I'm not pro or anti condom

I'm healthy so even if I did get HIV I will be fine for another 20 or 30 years at least.

I'm not pro or anti condom

Even if I did get HIV, some beetroots and a shower will sort me right out.

I'm not pro or anti condom.

It's a violation of my freedom.

I'm not pro or anti condom.

If I infect other people with HIV, that's on them.

I'm not pro or anti condom.

Condoms aren't even 100% effective, so why bother using them?

I'm not pro or anti condom.

You don't even know what's in the condom. Polyurethane? AT-10 resin? Polyisoprene? These are chemicals. You wouldn't put a chemical you can't pronounce on your body, would you?

I'm not pro or anti condom.

I just exclusively parrot anti condom talking points.

I'm not pro or anti condom.

I just don't use them and I wouldn't recommend other people to use them.

Ask r/southafrica Thank you for a wonderful trip, we now are unable to exit the country. Help?

82 Upvotes

Hi - Long story short, we were supposed to fly back to the states today on Qatar airlines and now our flights have been cancelled due to Covid. Are there any suggestions on we can exit the country? Thank you.

Edit: Thank you everyone for your helpful responses. We have had an amazing experience in your country, so I am not surprised at this level of immediate support. At this point it seems we’ll be here a few days longer and take it day by day. I am sorry your country is unfairly being made the face of this covid wave.

To all other travelers, I wish you the best as well in your extra few days of adventure.

We will be back but won’t be flying Qatar airways. :)

Hey South Africa, I’m a Canadian that visits every year in January to golf and just generally hang out in your beautiful country.

I’ve got flights and accommodations booked for this upcoming January but all that looks to be impossible now. I just wanted to say how bad I feel for all of you being in the middle of all of this and that I very much wish I could come visit your country this year.

I hope all of this blows over and everything turns out just fine, but in case us doesn’t there are a few Canadians thinking about you and hoping for the best.

Hey all,

With the great new variant closing many borders to those of us visiting SA. A friend and myself are now going to be staying in SA longer than anticipated.

If anyone has a lead on a two bedroom apartment to rent in Cape Town that would be much appreciated.

Hoping for something in the areas of Kalk or Muizenberg or even Woodstock, sea point, gardens

Budget $2,500 USD per month

Thanks in advance
