Humorous thought...

Syphilis has several stages - Primary - Secondary and Tertiary ... and seems to go dormant in-between...

Ignoring the Primary and Secondary stages - which is fairly easy to do since the signs and symptoms in the first two stages are not dramatically noticeable - one can go through life and not figure it out... But the Tertiary Stage will ‘get ‘ya.’

Many famous people of the 1600 - 1700 and 1800s lived and died with Syphilis infecting their hearts and brains...

This is the reason for higher HIV infection in Africa: the higher rates of STDs creating open sores where the HIV virus can enter.

This is also a leading indicator that condoms are not being used.

I'd say it's more of a lagging indicator.

The disconnect between actions and consequences never ceases to amaze me.

"We can’t be all that bad, after all you’re endorsing a Californian in your tag line and you’re on a web forum that was originated by a Californian in... you guessed it California."

That's a good point. I will try making a statement with more fairness now. All of California should slide into the ocean except for a few square feet of earth under each of the good Californians. ...better? ;-) [Little irony and humor there.]

“”The vast majority of early syphilis cases - about 97 percent - occurred in men, and more than 90 percent involved men who had sex with men, according to the Health Department. More than 70 percent of cases occurred among men who are HIV positive.””

We need to give homosexuals their own state, so they can marry, and butt bang to their hearts delight(and possible extinction). I vote for Massachusetts!!

Proud...to be infected with STDs.””

Check out the book “The Gift” about homosexuals seeking to become HIV positive. The mental derangement knows no boundaries.

Someone with medical background educate me, but hasn’t Syphilis been routinely curable with penicillin? And hasn’t a new drug-resistant strain emerged in the homosexual population?

I remember my earliest introduction to the facts of this disease when, as young kids, our RN mother took us to the science and history museum in our city. The medical wing had an exhibit on Syphilis with a 18th-century style sketch of an infected man with swollen glands and sores over his neck, shaved head, and tongue. That image haunts me whenever the subject comes up. That, and the word “insanity.”

It’s not just Frisco’s problem.
We’ll end up paying for the health care for these whores and homos.
