It's very commendable that Lady Gaga is dressing as a condom to promote safe sex. I'm sorry that Good Morning America is not concerned enough to discuss this in depth--they'd rather talk about the Grammy egg. The fact is, rubbers don't protect without water-based lubricant. And I was recently shocked by a gay my age who didn't know that lambskin condoms do not protect against HIV transmission. Getting some of these facts out there are more important than an outfit. But lubricant, even though it could help end an epidemic, is too edgy for our news. Sad.
