"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 .......

Too many psychotic men who get off on the risk.
a whole 22 dead.???......best we get busy and tax the heteros a billion more so we can get to the bottom of why 22 good homos HAD to die from a disease that they spread thru their rectums.....I sure want to know why..../sarcasm/
The first symptom is a pounding in the a$$.
For male homosexuals it's dramatically shorter than female homosexuals, basically because of the way fluids are received.
Wonder if there's a difference between pitchers and catchers?
Hmmmm, could this be somehow related to ...uh....you know what?
Nah, must be Bush/Conservatives/Tea Party/Pro-Lifers fault.
Not spending enough taxpayer dollars?
God will not be mocked.
We were told in 1980 that GRIDS was not a "homosexual disease". But GRIDS (Gay Related Immune Deficiency Syndrome), even when renamed to HIV or AIDS, still was the result overwhelmingly of the filthy behavior of sodomites.
Now in NYC their filthy behavior is spreading BM.
There is nothing new under the sun:
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet." (Romans 1:27)
If King James English is not your cup of tea, here the last clause in contemporary English (New American Standard Bible (©1995)): :
...receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
HOMOSEXUAL, because there’s nothing GAY about it!
Radical homosexual agendists want desperately to pretend this is an "equal opportunity disease" --just like they tried to claim about AIDS (until evidence to the contrary made such claims universally laughable).
These are highly educated, financially well-off men, mind you, who are still too stupid to avoid deleterious behavior.
The denial never stops.
I've seldom heard such a concise, accurate statement on this subject. Bravo.
“Smoking is a marker for an array of lifestyle choices that, in the aggregate, shorten lifespans.”
The arrogance of that statement astonishes me,Oh Perfect One.
I’m a long-time smoker who turned 80 my last birthday.My lifestyle choices would probably bore you to death.
I abhor stereotyping.
I understand that a lot of the male homosexual newspapers and magazines stopped putting ages on some of the self-inflicted victims of AIDS because of the study I mentioned. It didn't sit well with them bragging about how wonderful their lifestyle was.
Some of the other things that have historically been wiping out male homosexuals are gay-men bowel syndrome, alcoholism, suicide, drugs, and depression.
I never, never use the word "gay" to refer to these guys . . . If they were "gay," they'd be having normal relations with the opposite sex instead of exhibiting this disgusting behavior.
You’re interpreting that in the wrong way. A lot of identifiable groups whose behaviors lead to shortened lifespans also smoke cigarettes, and so the blame for shorter lifespan on average for smokers has root in other things.
A lot of alcoholics smoke, a lot of depressed people smoke, a lot of drug users smoke, a lot of homosexuals smoke. If you were to select out other contributory factors such as the above, you’d likely find that the life-shortening effects attributed to smoking are not nearly so pronounced.
It’s the substance abusers, depressives and deviant sexual subgroups who are dragging the average down.
The comments at the original news article are largely denying that this is a “gay” disease. Whatever. They did that with AIDS (still doing it, unbelievably) and where did that get them?
I look forward to this thing progressing in the “community” so that they can keep denying it. If that sounds cruel, sorry, no apology is forthcoming. These reprobates attack us and then blame US for the consequences of their debauchery.
Beyond the newborn period, the most common causes of bacterial meningitis are Neisseria meningitidis, Streptococcus pneumoniae, and Haemophilus influenzae.
Incidence rates of N. meningitidis meningitis are generally highest in children less than five years of age and in adolescents.
Meningitis due to S. pneumoniae occurs most commonly in the very young and the very old, with an estimated incidence rate of 17 cases per 100,000 population in children less than five years of age.
Though H. influenzae meningitis is rare in adolescents and adults, rates of meningitis due to are highest in children less than five years of age, with an estimated incidence rate of 31 cases per 100,000.
All three of these organisms are respiratory pathogens. They are spread from person to person by close contact with respiratory secretions.
So, by your theory then, God punishes homosexuals by smiting unrelated children with meningitis?
