Sex infections still growing in U.S.(63% of all syphilis cases from homosexuals!)
Reuters ^ | 16 Nov 2009 | Maggie Fox

Posted on 11/16/2009 2:02:15 PM PST by DesertRenegade

American squeamishness about talking about sex has helped keep common sexually transmitted infections far too common, especially among vulnerable teens, U.S. researchers reported Monday.

Latest statistics on chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis show the three highly treatable infections continue to spread in the United States.

"Chlamydia and gonorrhea are stable at unacceptably high levels and syphilis is resurgent after almost being eliminated," said John Douglas, director of the division of sexually transmitted diseases at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"We have among the highest rates of STDs of any developed country in the world," Douglas added in a telephone interview.

The administration of President Barack Obama has signaled a willingness to move away from so-called abstinence-only sex education approaches promoted by his predecessor, George W. Bush, and conservative state and local governments.

Several studies have shown such approaches do not work well and that it is better to encourage abstinence while also offering children and teens information about how to protect themselves from diseases as well as pregnancy.

"We haven't been promoting the full battery of messages," Douglas said. "We have been sending people out with one seatbelt in the whole car."

Welcome to Obama's degenerate America. The statistics of disease for homosexuals is pretty stunning. They are at most 1-2% of the population in urban areas, yet account for 63% of all syphilis cases in the USA!

You do understand that a person with HIV/AIDS was denied admittance to the US until mid-Clinton administration when he repealed this rule?

Well, if smoker have to cough up (no pun intended) extra $ to pay for their bad habits, how about a $20 tax on gay bar cocktails (also no pun intended) and a $100 admission charge to gay bathhouses to defray the cost of AIDS and the other diseases they get and give-and get and give.....

I’m not gay and I don’t smoke—but I can at least understand sticking a cigarette in my mouth.......

American squeamishness about talking about sex ...

Huh? Seems to me that American culture does practically nothing else *but* talk about sex.

It isn't "squeamishness" that is causing the rates to rise.

It is the sex positive agenda's absolute rejection of abstinence on human sexual responses. If it feels good do it. Experiment.

They consider abstinence UNHEALTHY because it is a supression of sexual desires.

Abstinence blocks the transmission of disease (and pregnancy) every time it's applied.

Instead the establishment's attitude is "everybody does it" and has now proceeded to tell girls that there is no stigma in getting HPV, "everybody catches THAT one now...".

No, American promiscuity and if-it-feels-good-do-it immorality is what has kept us awash in infections.

We talk about it ALL THE TIME. TV, radio, movies, books, schools, newsrags. . .

And with the increase in syphilis in the homosexual community I will guarantee you that the rate of AIDS infection is going to sky rocket as well.

It is not squimishness in regards to talking about sex that is the problem. The problem is that all too many folks think that it is okay for youngsters to engage in whatever behaviour makes them feel good. Too bad. Death awaits so many of them -—— many of these STDs are silent killers

"Queer sex is far more likely to kill a participant than smoking (tobacco)."

It's worse. Queer, promiscuous sex contributes to developing resistant strains of microorganisms. This particularly applies to AIDS. Researchers work overtime, because the virus readily mutates and adjusts itself to existing drugs. In the meantime, queers engage in "sex" and share between themselves different variations of the virus, facilitating the survival of more and more resistant pathogens. Later, if they pass this to some non-queer, the drugs won't work...

No kidding! There's practically no escape, but cutting the cable TV was a huge help. What decent (pun intended) programming was on there was debased by ED commercials anyway. I got tired of clicking past the filth only to be assaulted by someone's performance problems. No thanks.

If this stuff is all over the media - out in the open - I shudder to think what is promoted behind closed doors at the schools. America could use a little squeamishness. Make that a lot.

It’s been 7 years since we’ve had cable. I’m always shocked when I watch commercial television now.

We have a Netflix instant-view beeber and can watch selected (mostly older) tv programs without commercials.

If there’s anyone over 10 in the US today who doesn’t know that sex causes pregnancy and spreads disease, they must be some of those dreadfully strict homeschoolers we read about but never meet in Real Life.

Last I heard the sympathy plea for homosexuals & the result of their behavior(s) was when the AIDs thing first surfaced. Early 90s, IIRC.

Didn't take long before the republic was convinced the disease belonged to all of us, homo or otherwise. And of course enormous amounts of fed $$ were steered to "finding a cure" when in fact even those with a partial lobotomy knew the solution was abstinence.

Same thing happened with weapons.
Soon as the urban thugs began emulating 1920s Chicago gangs & gangland slayings?
The matter became a Second Amendment issue where the law abiding gun owner came under scrutiny? :o)

SOS, different day. LOL

This has nothing to do with "squeamishness in talking about sex." It has everything to do with pud pirates shiverin' each others' timbers. But once again PC trumps common sense, and we're supposed to believe some hollow jive about "education" and "getting the message out."

Here's a message: don't have homosexual sex. Watch the results speak for themselves.

I agree completely. There may be a lot of reasons for this but reticence isn't one of them.

Promiscuity raises risk of infection to scarcely believable levels no matter what population practices it. The smaller the population, the more true that is. Has anyone played one of those entertaining zombie simulators like this one? It isn't a joke - this is exactly what an untreated disease outbreak looks like.

New strain of Hep C hits NYC gays, 25% fatality rate, can kill the liver in 4 months after detection.

Gay men alone can skew abstinence ed statistics to make it look less effective. Isn't it crazy how criticism of their self-destructive lifestyle has been made to look like some weird religious quirk?

Ever notice how scientists who recommend people "limit sexual partners" never translate it to recommend "lifelong monogamy with no fornication"?

So many people have bought the lies of our licentious culture and are paying the price with their health and their lives. For every slur you might say, add ten prayers for them.

I was shocked when I came across this idea. We have come from the belief that sex is something powerful that must be restrained to sex is a right that shouldn't be contained.

I have heard that the reason Republicans are considered "anti-woman" is because of the conservative value of sex being within marriage. I believe the quote was "it only makes sense if they [Republicans] are against women having orgasms."

The “squeamishness” seems to be about realistically discussing the consequences of sex, at least in popular culture - movies, tv, music. (Nobody pays attention to what they’re taught in school, naturally enough.)

It isn't "squeamishness" that is causing the rates to rise.

And, we know from the promotion of condoms in Africa and the UK. Only Uganda, which has promoted abstinence and monogamy, has seen a significant drop in AIDS in the continent.

Condoms have done nothing to slow the AIDS epidemic in Africa. Teen STDs and abortion are at an all-time high in the UK as the government continues to use condoms as a primary strategy in public schools to stop teen STDs.

The real question is, are liberals are stupid enough to believe condoms can solve the problem or do they know it won't and want to take advantage of the problems caused by the spread of STDs?

Planned Parenthood makes money when birth control techniques fail. Encouraging irresponsible teens to have sex is good for bidness.

And what’s an abortion cost these days? Are these 13 year old girls resourceful enough to pay for one without notifying their parents or is their Sugar Daddy giving them the money to make it go away?

What’s “funny” is that Barack says you MUST carry health insurance because you could get hit by a bus. Seems that if you get hit by a bus, you probably have a good case to levy against the city.

When are we going to REQUIRE homeowners to carry fire insurance and hurricane insurance and flood insurance? I’m sick of every national tragedy requiring a federal bailout.

11 Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

12 Therefore, thou son of man, say unto the children of thy people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression: as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turneth from his wickedness; neither shall the righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth.

13 When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it.

14 Again, when I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; if he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right;

Your virtue in this age of immorality is very commendable. Just to clarify what I hope you already know, the ONLY "committed relationship, something to be shared between a man and woman who truly love each other" worthy of sex is marriage. Anything less is to the detriment of everyone involved and society as a whole. It's always worth waiting for.
