The govenment is going to waste time and money on the wasted? Porn ‘industry’ ‘workers’ are pure garbage. Let them get sick and die. Who cares?!

Clearly this is a crisis that needs direct oversight. Time for the President to take over this industry and manage it himself. Then we need a czar.

Perhaps I missed it but 22 positives means nothing if we don’t know how many were tested. 22 out of ? could be above or below the average for beekeepers, Trappist monks or rodeo clowns or any other profession.

They dont provide that to us.
They're not allowed to. Violation of confidentiality. And I wouldn't be surprised if faggots pushed for that one.

I don't understand. If we're talking about the porn industry, then surely the authorities have PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE to go on. How difficult can it be to crack down on parties whom you've got live on film in the very act, in flagrante delicto?

This is a great learning opportunity. This proves beyond a doubt that testing is not prevention. So many people have been convinced that testing is keeping them safe. It only gives them a false sense of safety.
Funny (and sad) how things have changed over the years. A communicable disease used to be considered to be a "public health concern." Today, it's illegal for a doctor to notify the spouse of a person carrying a lethal disease that the person is infected, or to even suggest that they (the spouse who doesn't know) should be tested themselves.

We need a Porno Czar - maybe Bill Clinton is up for it.
