"Health officials work to diffuse fears of national epidemic"
Gay sex is becoming even more dangerous.
Health officials are warning sexually active gay men about an outbreak of potentially deadly bacterial meningitis in Los Angeles and New York.
The disease has infected 22 people in New York and caused seven deaths since 2010. Health officials in Los Angeles are testing to see if the strain infecting gay men there is the same one hitting New York.
The AIDS Healthcare Foundation began offering free meningitis vaccines today after a gay man from West Hollywood was declared brain dead on Friday.
Thirty-three-year-old lawyer Brett Shaad died within a week of feeling sick.
Authorities suspect he was exposed to bacterial meningitis at a party in Palm Springs the weekend of March 30 that attracts gay revelers from across the country.
The New York Daily News is calling the disease an STD threat, even though the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does not classify bacterial meningitis as a sexually transmitted disease.
The CDC does say the disease can not be spread by casual contact, but, Some bacteria can spread through the exchange of respiratory and throat secretions (e.g., kissing).
KTLA reported the death of Shaad, a West Hollywood lawyer, has caused alarm.
Were not saying at this point that we have an outbreak in Los Angeles, Michael Weinstein, president of the AHF, told KTLA. But we know that this disease is serious, its deadly and that it can spread relatively easily.
The AP reported Shaad went to an emergency room on Wednesday and on Thursday he was in a coma.
Symptoms of the disease often appear within three to seven days of exposure. They include fever, stiff .......

There are also new strains of gonorreah that are resistant to the usual antibiotics used to treat it.
It’s mostly affecting MSM (that’s liberal textbook speak for men who have sex with men . . .just in case you didn’t know).
You play, you pay ...sorry, homos.
I don’t think it’s the homos that are the root of the evil,
I think they’re simply tools of the left to criminalize Christianity.
This is a catastrophe, and it's all Ronald Reagan's fault.
No, not the sole root-cause, just another contributing factor with the racists, the America-haters, the liberals, our Democrat Government, Unions, illegals, foreign Muslims, et al.
***Soon theyll be begging us to cure them of their chosen deathstyle (packers disease) and demanding that we pay for it.***
I’ve always felt this was the REAL REASON for OBAMACARE.
The real reason for 0bamacare is to kill political enemies by denying them healthcare.
***And AIDS is the most TOTALLY PREVENTABLE DISEASE.***
The best defense is to set on your a$$ and keep your mouth shut!
1.5% of the population is responsible for 65% of the reported STDs in the US according to the CDC. Should we really be surprised to read this news?
“... the life expectancy for homosexuals is about twenty years shorter than that of the general public.”
The life expectancy of the average US citizen is 78.2 years making it 58 years for homosexuals.
As in coverage for "pre-existing conditions"???
Isn't that a pretty picture? If you didn't know better, this could be describing grandma and her fellow church-lady revelers out on holiday.
The fact that you ignore the Global Warming component shows just how brainwashed you really are.
Wonder if this can be used to deny employment to homosexuals in the same manner that smokers are being denied employment—Increased insurance costs.
If we lived in a country that still grounded itself in common logic, you’d be right.
Bacterial meningitis is not a homosexual disease, but it is an extremely dangerous one. The US Army just goes bananas whenever it has an outbreak (usually associated with nurseries with small children, who can show fewer symptoms but infect adults.)
“The most common symptoms of meningitis are headache and neck stiffness associated with fever, confusion or altered consciousness, vomiting, and an inability to tolerate light (photophobia) or loud noises (phonophobia). Children often exhibit only nonspecific symptoms, such as irritability and drowsiness. If a rash is present, it may indicate a particular cause of meningitis; for instance, meningitis caused by meningococcal bacteria may be accompanied by a characteristic rash.
“A lumbar (spinal cord) puncture diagnoses or excludes meningitis. A needle is inserted into the spinal canal to extract a sample of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), that envelops the brain and spinal cord.”
My own experience with it was being on one of the larger Army posts when a few people came down with it. The entire post was sectored off, and medical people carrying suitcases full of gamma globulin began to vaccinate *everyone*. The gates were closed by armed guards and nobody was allowed in or out. And I mean *nobody*.
Some unhappy individuals had to leave their post sector on urgent business after being given their shot, and as often as not, they got a second shot. If you have never had a shot of gamma, it is very thick and takes a strong thumb to inject.
All of this is because during WWII, the US Army lost a LOT of soldiers to meningitis, and they are still ticked off about it.
It is cruel and irresponsible to be teaching American public school children to interact with one another like this...so they can be unhappy, get sick and die young, too. They lie, proposing to children two equal and wonderful choices - to marry someone of your own sex or to marry someone of the opposite sex. It’s so twisted and deceiptful.
I will never understand liberalism’s thirst for oppression, poverty, death and suffering. We do have the freedom to make decisions in our lives but we also must suffer or enjoy the consequences of those decisions.
Socialization of children should be about teaching them how to make responsible and loving choices in life. They should learn to analyze data, set goals for themselves and to think independently so they can come to conclusions on what to do and what not to do in life. With this mess of politically correct herd-think, a pack of elitist lies and manipulations, many children don’t stand much of a chance. For those children who have parents with a culture and brain, liberals diliberately and aggressively contradict and disrespect goodness.
This was known 20 years ago when I was in the actuarial department of a life insurance company. Homosexuals’ life expectancies are dramatically below average, even when AIDS deaths are factored out.
Interestingly, most of the decreased life expectance for smokers is not due to smoking-specific illness. Smoking is a “marker” for an array of lifestyle choices that, in the aggregate, shorten lifespans.

Uh, if that was the case, maybe some females might get it!
Seems to me that there’s a bit more going on between the poofters!
