How many times?

Men are incredibly selfish and irresponsible. Every time they have sexual intercourse without a condom, they prove it.

You should do something about that.

Imagine a collage of male body parts (of living men, that is — just now their whole selves), each with one of the following captions: Your legs are too hairy. You should do something about that. Your hair’s too thin. You should do something about that. Your butt droops. You should do something about that. …
