On Monday, a team of researchers led by doctors from the University of California at San Francisco announced that gay men were “many times more likely than others” to acquire a new strain of drug-resistant staphylococcus, a nasty, fast-spreading and potential lethal bacteria known as MRSA USA300. And sure enough, the study, published online in the Annals of Internal Medicine, was quickly picked up by reporters round the world and across the Internet, including a London tabloid which dubbed the disease “the new H.I.V.”

“And we’re sick and tired of it.”

In more ways than one.

The way they keep targeting gays homosexuals as if gays homosexuals alone are responsible for it, its like H.I.V./AIDS all over again,” said Colin Thurlow, 60, who is gay homosexual and lives in San Francisco. “And we’re sick and tired of it.” ...

fixed that.


I would venture to say that the normal hetrosexual part of our society is getting sick of this perverted lifestyle spreading these diseases.

now they’re trying to cover up the truth...
IIRC - it’s a newer, very nasty variant of MRSA

Gays may be able to control our media so that they can brainwash us with the “gay is good” mantra, but it seems Mother Nature herself doesn’t care much for them.

“For gay activists, the truth hurts.” and must be destroyed at any cost.

“We deplore negative targeting of specific populations in association with MRSA infections or other public health concerns,” it concluded. Dr. Henry Chambers, one of the report’s authors and a professor of medicine at the university, said he was surprised by how the report had been spun.

Really ?

I seriously doubt this report would have been revised if they found a new STD linked with female to male prostitution

Hookers aren't a PC protected group of people.

This NEW threat could have been expected.
Bill Clinton’s CDC released figures a number of years ago reflecting that fully
85% of all AIDS/HIV cases are
1. Active, non-monogamous homosexuals,
(the largest subset)
2. Heterosexuals and bisexuals who have had sex with group 1 and
3. IV drug abusers who share needles.
(Kinda gives new meaning to Romans 6:23, doesn’t it?)
The remaining 15% are those who have contracted AIDS via other means (such as blood transfusions, making THEM the REAL victims of AIDS.
One homosexual “leader” on the West Coast URGED his fellow homosexuals to CONTINUE to
attempt to contaminate in order to involve the straight community in the push to increase federal funding for AIDS research. What a guy — er — gay!

That “research.” BTW, would much less necessary if these folks would simply stop doing nasty and unhealthy things to themselves.

Everyone should thank this group for a major assist in the increase in TB cases.

THe CDC wants to screen every admit to a hospital for HIV but is not interested in easily transmissible diseases like TB. Politics as usual...if we screen everyone for HIV then everyone will think its normal.

Just imagine how sick you’ll be if Little Colin falls off because of that staph infection, my friend.
