He's concerned but not overly so.

Making lifestyle changes due to the risk of a fatal disease would be "overly concerned," I presume.

Perhaps they should tell the meningitis that it’s being mean, insensitive and discriminatory and hold a fund raiser to raise awareness.

If this follows the pattern of the aids epidemic we can expect the federal government will spend billions of dollars trying to find a ‘cure’ and be subjected to a media blitz to persuade us that everyone is at risk.

I believe you can get meningitis from kissing or even being in close proximity to an infected person. Unfortunately, wild club behavior, drinking and generally not taking good care of oneself weakens the immune system and makes catching diseases more likely.

Many believe AIDS was sent as a warning to cease and desist. Instead, the gay community mocked the sender. Now this. Will it take seven plaques to get their attention?

Oh brother, on average 1500 people die of meningitis a year and these attention seekers are worried about 3 of them happen to be gay when they died from the disease. The huge majority of the deaths are from straight folks. It is truly about them all the time for everything. So sick of it.

Promiscuous anal sex makes the homosexual community a rapid vector for all sorts of diseases. Finding a cure for AIDS won’t matter, because something new will turn up or evolve, and spread rapidly through all of gay-dom.

Silly Freepers.

Hateful.

Intolerant.

When will you learn that it is YOUR OWN INTOLERANCE that is killing these American heros?

Yes... Because they speak out against people who are on the wrong side of history, like you, they are heroes.

They are.

Ask any school-teacher.

Your INTOLERANCE is killing them.

BRAVE GAYS like Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and General George Patton. But not Barack Obama. He’s not gay.

YOU are killing these heros.

(Not the fact that they’re putting each others’ penises inside each others’ anuses.)

YOU. It’s YOU.

Thank you. Try the veal. Tip your waitress.

I would demand that Mozilla devote its non-profit profits to the research to find a cure. It’s the only way they can show their commitment, after having that hateful infiltrator run the company for so many years.

I do notice that the Pro-sodomy contingent is no longer shouting that everybody is at risk of dying so long as AIDS exists.

"never a good idea"

I have a sister who was a nurse in the emergency room for many years. She had numerous interesting stories to tell about people with weird things stuck in places where they were not designed to be stuck.

I don’t see what the problem is. They can just boycott the meningitis, and they’re good to go.
