Ladies, have condoms in your house? Will.i.am calls that a turn-off.

Quoted text: [I would know a woman and I were not compatible] if she had condoms in her house, that would just f**kin’ throw me off. That’s just tacky.
—Will.i.am on his dating dealbreakers in Elle.
Article Text: Excuse me? And again, excuse me! How is it tacky to have condoms in your house? It means you are a responsible woman who protects herself. How could that possibly be a turn off? Wouldn’t that be reassuring? Ohhhh, wait … I get it. Women who keep condoms in their houses are sluts. And Will.i.am is not looking for a slut. He’s looking for a virgin who uses baby wipes. That’s another one of his dealbreakers by the way—if she doesn’t have baby wipes in her bathroom. Let’s get angry about his statement in the comments. It will make me feel better.]
Well if that isn’t the most ridiculous thing I’ve read all day.
Is…Is this a joke? How the fuck is not wanting to expose yourself to potential STDs and/or pregnancy “tacky”?
I just….The fuck is this shit?!
Stay classy, Will.i.am.
So the lesson here is, apparently, that Will.i.am has about 12 STDs and it’s a real turn-off if a woman doesn’t give him an opportunity to spread them to her. GOOD TO KNOW.
But seriously, Will.i.am, knowing how important condoms are for both men and women’s health, plus their excellent birth control properties, I find it troubling that a man of your level of education holds a view like this. As hard as millions have worked to create a culture and society that embraces condom use as a health and safety issue, your statement makes me weep for how much work is left to be done.
I hope you never get to have sex again. Sadly, this is not likely to happen, as there are plenty of people without any self-respect in the world, and they usually hang around celebrities.
