Re: Unsure about 'Clap' in a female
Clap is an old school venereal disease, Gonorrhea. Back in the day we only had two diseases to worry about, one being clap the other being syphilis, a much more dangerous and deforming disease.
With gonorrhea, in women there can be no symptoms at all, ... while in men it can cause pain on urination. Without treatment it can spread throughout your body, eventually landing in your heart.
The clap was very prevalent in the the 40's-70's. I have not honestly heard of it being around in years, but anything is possible.
I would advise you to wait until you find a girl without such a reputation, but if you do choose to go out with this girl, make sure you have an open line of communication and see results of a negative test for sexually transmitted diseases. Definitely always use a condom, no mater what.
It would be too bad if this was simply mean comments from others, but the most important thing is to protect yourself at all costs. You have a long life ahead, and keeping yourself free of STD's is very important.
