I guess that's what happens when the things you say show a dismaying lack of empathy.

My panties did not get in a bunch...it's just that I have had more than my fair share of visiting in the hospital, and insinuating that the people who are there are there because of their lifestyle really has nothing to do with a silly comment about 'a straw'. I have spent the last 15 days at a hospital and it's overwhelming to see what is going on in there and how it affects everyone around them.

Yeah, that's it, I'll put something in the cup that reaches my face so I won't have to struggle to lift the cup." Hence the cylindrical siphoning device we all cherish so fondly today!
Straws have many benefits over drinking out of cup.

Saves the enamel of teeth.

Straws that are sealed in wrappers served with drinks help prevent against bacteria that is sitting on the rim of the cup.

No worries of large chunks of ice landing on your lap.
