Being in control of your sexual health? Tacky!!

In a recent interview with Elle, Black-Eyed Pea threw out this gem:

ELLE: If you walked into a woman’s house, what one item would convince you that you weren’t compatible?
W: If she had condoms in her house, that would just fuckin’ throw me off. That’s just tacky.

ELLE: Well, okay, I could see if she had a candy bowl full of them on the coffee table. But if she’s got a few in a drawer, wouldn’t that simply suggest she’s health-conscious?
W: I just think, like, if you’re into someone and you guys get to that level, then that’s something you should converse about together and say, “Hey, maybe we should get some.” Another pet peeve is wet sinks.

Oh, that’s RIGHT, will – totally forgot that it’s unbecoming for a chick to protect herself. We should all just leave the prophylactic purchasing up to you dudes – or else we’ll look like the sluts that we are! After all, you don't bring condom-carrying gals home to meet mama.

So ladies, Mr. says we must rid our living spaces of unused condoms before having male visitors. I'm wondering: if women shouldn’t buy condoms unless they’re with (chaperoned by) their SigOt – what to do with leftover condoms after a breakup? Perhaps will’s next venture will be condom exchange programs…

I'm honestly so dumbfounded by this that I've rewritten my comment multiple times. To know that someone with such influence over today's youth is sending out the message that women shouldn't be prepared for a sexual relationship, whether it be a one night stand or a couple that doesn't reside together, is as obsurd as taking funding from Planned Parenthood. Also, to send the message that a dirty or wet sink is as "disgusting" as having condoms in your nightstand or purse baffles me on some other levels. I mean, I'm trying to hope that he was misquoted or the wording didn't come out right - I could maybe, MAYBE, understand that as a male it would be a turn off to show up at a girl's house and she's prepared and they are the wrong sized condoms, but even then, that's a stretch. I can see it being embarrassing for them if you pull out a Trojan Magnum and they pull out "thumbillina" - I can see how that could hurt the ego and maybe make them think twice do to the person's past. But to know that he suggests that women not go and buy condoms withut the help of a man in the 21st century is just .... it's just dumb.

Amen! On a positive note, most guys I know would not think it's "tacky" for a woman to have her own condoms - they'd probably be stoked that she is comfortable buying them herself. These guys also don't listen to or idolize
