VD: Facts You Should Know
It was kind of disappointing to do a statewide as well as a local search in catalogs and find that there are quite a few public libraries around that still had some of this old material about venereal disease. Of course everyone knows that medical information is probably suspect after a good 5 years or so. I think that when we are talking about STDs or STIs and other health issues, it’s important we keep this information up to date.
Another disappointing aspect of some of these older materials, especially when we’re talking about sexual health topics, is the not so subtle judgment on moral behavior that really serves no purpose. Today’s young people need up-to-date information, especially on health sexual health topics. Weed these when we get back to work. We will need shelf space for the COVID-19 books.
