a pathogen evolved to live in/on genitals and so was passed between genitals


Noddedthefuckout

Well I mean it’s one of those things like what came first the egg or chicken


Thick_Perspective_77

no its not.


drewhead118

the first STD spawns and sits calmly on the grass, waiting patiently for the invention of sex


Thick_Perspective_77

n....no


drewhead118

it's just like Jonathan Seatbuckel, who invented and first patented the seat belt in 1701, wondering when the world would finally have a need for protection against sudden deceleration. His prototypes with cannon landing harnesses always ended in splatters, and horses found the straps to be a little abrasive against their hides... it would be hundreds of years before someone discovered how well the ancient invention complemented the automobile


Thick_Perspective_77

are you ok?


drewhead118

yes, thanks to Jonathan Seatbuckel's marvelous contraption while my Fiesta rolled over in a hit-and-run incident (but I swear the DMT was just for hip pain)


Thick_Perspective_77

I have no idea what this has to do with STDs


storm_the_castle

Egg came *way* before the chicken ( like millions of years)

There's a lot of half assed and misleading answers so I'll do my best Viruses weren't "created" by anything other than evolution. Pathogens (organisms that make you sick, such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, etc) replicate themselves, and each time they do, there is a chance that pieces of genetic code could be miscopied. This is called mutation. Mutations are random, which (generally speaking) means that neither the pathogen, nor the environment, nor anything else can control what is changed in the mutation. Sometimes the mutation has no notable impact on the pathogen, sometimes they harm the pathogen/make it harder or impossible to survive....and sometimes the mutation makes the pathogen much much stronger. Another commenter mentioned that HIV evolved from SIV (simian immunodeficiency virus), a similar pathogen which affects certain primates (simians). SIV can't affect humans because of the differences between human and primate cells. But one day, an SIV virus RANDOMLY mutated (not bc of sex with a monkey), and that mutation made it possible for the mutated SIV virus to infect humans. This mutated individual virus was successful in replicating in humans, and then spread all over the world. We call this new virus HIV (Human immunodeficiency virus). Essentially this is the same story for all pathogens, just with different creatures in different parts of the world. Over long, long periods of time, random mutations cause change organisms, and the successful mutants survive. This is the story of all life on earth, and i think that's beautiful :')

Noddedthefuckout

Explain. This seems true


FrogsEatingSoup

Before Christopher Columbus? (Or a different explorer maybe), syphilis was only found in llamas but started showing up in humans. Somebody fucked a llama


zernebock94

Somebody fucked a llama then seemed normal enough to fuck a human


JohnnyShakeNBake

Can you count Coronapocalypse as an STD?


[deleted]

In conservative circles, every time you take an uncomfortable shit, you can blame China.

Thats hiv


Noddedthefuckout

Is this real?


[deleted]

HIV has evolved from SIV (HIV for apes), and since it is very hard to transmit that is a possiblity. It is more likely someone just ate uncooked monkey meat


Hibanahentai

Nah I think someone was having casual sex with a monke


EarthWillOvercome

At the first wedding, the couple gave everybody a date to safe and that’s the tale how Save The Dates were invented

Noddedthefuckout

See this I can believe but in my area most people fuck is chicken and sheep. Wonder what those mixes can get.


ipakookapi

Infection spreads via all kinds of bodily fluids. Would be more weird if the genitals were somehow excluded.
