STD"s Skyrocketing! Who's to Blame? Homophobes

Bloomberg has this absolutely amazing lede about the rise in STD's. I mean this is one of those that you just have to shake your head at. Not because their slant is atypical. It's just that normally they at least try to hide it...a little.

Gonorrhea and syphilis are on the rise in the U.S., mostly in men who have sex with men, a trend the government said is linked to inadequate testing among people stymied by homophobia and limited access to health care.
Wow. STD's are on the rise not due to homosexual acts but because of homophobes.

And you've just got to love that their other reason coincides perfectly with the White House agenda. Lack of access to health care.

So the direct correlation of man/man sex is essentially tossed aside for the deep dark underbelly suspected causation. So nowhere do they suggest in the piece that perhaps men should kinda' keep away from random sex with other men. No. Because to do so would make them homophobic. And therefore they would become the very cause of the problem they're reporting on.

Wow. Circular logic. That's like in Terminator, John Connor sends his bff back in time to stop the T-800 and his bff becomes his father. I know, right?

Anyway, for those keeping score at home gonorrhea rose 4 percent in the last year and syphilis rose 11 percent, according to Bloomberg. Because...homophobe.

C. LaSalle said...

Did it ever occur to any of these politicians that perhaps gay men just don't care about the consequences of their actions regarding sex? There has been millions of dollars poured into prevention and education in the gay community and yet numbers continue to rise for STD's and HIV. At some point we have to ask ourselves how much is enough?

The big lie is that condoms prevent transmission. Perhaps they do in a clinical setting with both “partners” clean and sober and using hand wipes. yuk

" Gonorrhea and syphilis are on the rise in the U.S., mostly in men who have sex with men, a trend the government said is linked to inadequate testing among people stymied by homophobia and limited access to health care. "

That's called 'pretzel logic'. Gays are getting sick because people are afraid of gays so they don't give them health care.

A doesn't lead to B then to C... A goes to H then to C and Q then R, see? So its your fault and you're a racist and homophobe.

But I am 100% certain Obamacare will cover and any all gay diseases.

Unlike AIDS, which is primarily a gay disease, both syphilis and gonorrhea have long histories of infecting straight people, particularly those who engage in sex with prostitutes. A doctor who would treat these STDs wouldn’t know the sexual preference of his patients, and undoubtedly wouldn’t care if he did. The whole story is unmitigated b.s.

It’s not that “homophobes” are refusing to administer the tests. It’s that the gays are afraid they’ll encounter a “homophobe” (read: someone who tells them the truth about their sexual proclivities), so they don’t go get tested in the first place, and then keep engaging in what I’ve seen described as “the riskiest sexual behavior”.

Interesting survey of doctors that will never be conducted:

“In your professional opinion, would you say that male homosexual sex would be medically indicated or contraindicated based on the health results thereof?”

One more reason for the government to prosecute Christians. Their bizarre faith system is causing the best and most creative among us to get sick. /s

I had a PCP who was completely frank with me. He said I would not worry about aids as you are not a fag and are not in certain minority group. Your chance for aids is almost zero but due to current political enviornment I am required to tell you to be safe. I really liked that PCP who was of Chinese ancestry.

Just curious, would a “certain minority group” be more susceptible because of genetics or behaviors?

If the latter, then you wouldn’t even have to worry about being in “a certain minority group” if you didn’t participate in the risky behaviors that contract AIDS.

Another case of a protected government-approved victim group refusing to take responsibility for their actions.

In fact, they are rewarded for their irresponsible actions.

The interesting part will be when the drug resistant gonorrhea moves from mostly black males right now to homosexuals.

Though it *may* be treatable right now, with a lot of dedication and hard work, once it gets into the immune compromised, which is an ideal breeding ground for drug resistant bacteria, it is going to emerge with a vengeance.

And untreated gonorrhea is gnarly, to say the least.

He did not explain the distinction. My guess it was from behavior regarding the susceptibility by different groups to the disease. This was not a college biology course on the subject, it was a five minute discussion.

That particular quote doesn't seem to blame ‘homophobes’,
but I have heard liberals claim that if we only ‘let’ gays marry the same sex they would be monogamous, and they (males) wouldn't molest boys anymore.

.. syphilis and gonorrhea have long histories of infecting straight people, particularly those who engage in sex with prostitutes.

But, but, but, what is the difference between a slut and a prostitute? Money? Drugs? Disease? How about, NOTHING!

I can't tell you how happy I am to be too old to have to face these problems, not because I'm no longer engaging in the activity, but my potential partners are not of the new feminist parlor game.. "I can do everything a man can do including careless sex"!

Most Men are, and always have been PIGS, where sex is concerned, and traditionally, women have been the gatekeeper, remember? Oh yeah, that's misogynistic..

Remember, a homophobe is anyone who when asked the question “what do you think of my gayness?” doesn’t respond with “it’s wonderful, allow me to bow down!”

Pretty accurate for women too, as soon as they are faithful to a sole man, who aren‘t a member of said risk groups.

During the time the blood supply was not safe as the AIDS contamination of the supply had started, I had to have a hysterectomy. In that area of a woman's body blood vessels are everywhere to be able to support the growth of a child.

I was surprised when the surgeon told me he would not give me blood even if I bled too much. He would only give me a transfusion if my life was in danger. He couldn't count on the blood or plasma to be safe from AIDS.

I did lose more blood than he wanted as he told me after the surgery it would be longer for me to get my strength back as my body would be making blood to fill up that loss.

Thank goodness he took the contamination of blood seriously as I wouldn't have known to tell him not to give me blood.

Some time in the past several years, I read some homosexuals in California were getting AIDS on purpose so they wouldn't have to keep worrying about getting it. They figured with the better medicines we have now to keep it from killing them soon, just get AIDS, take the meds and go on with their sexual life as they wanted.

Yeah, I am not so sure about the part about not knowing sexual preferences of the patients. Part of the treatment and prevention of these STDs is to determine and notify recent sex partners, so that they can undergo treatment also.

“inadequate testing among people stymied by homophobia”

Then who really has a “phobia”?

Do these men think that there are anti-homosexual snipers hiding behind the magazine rack at their doctor, listening into their private conversations, waiting to attack them if they admit they are homosexual?

Homophobia is a made-up word. Either it is a warranted fear because homosexuals are dangerous, or it is an unwarranted fear which would make it an illness and disability which should justify treatment and compassion rather than attacks and threats of job loss and financial ruin. If it was the latter, it would be homosexualphobia because homo is a prefix for many things.

Anal sex is so disgusting. Is it any wonder that the majority of sodomites have HIV/AIDS?

Why is this behavior encouraged?

I truly believe the sodomites and the lesbians hate themselves. Deep down inside they know they are wrong.

No, actually, the Propaganda Wing of the White House is ALL IN, now. They proudly announce their total adulation of Der Fuhrer and their lasting allegiance to Communism.
