Medicine on the verge of drastically reducing and preventing HIV for the second sexual revolution
NextBigFuture ^ | 05/26/2014 | NextBigFuture

Federal health officials recommended two weeks ago that hundreds of thousands of Americans at risk for AIDS take a daily pill that has been shown to prevent infection with the virus that causes it.

If broadly followed, the advice could transform AIDS prevention in the United States — from reliance on condoms, which are effective but unpopular with many men, to a regimen that relies on an antiretroviral drug. . . . . .

The first is psychological. Doctors and policy makers need to admit that 30 years of the ABC mantra — abstain, be faithful, use condoms — has failed. Men generally hate condoms, their lovers usually give in, almost no one abstains, precious few stay faithful.

Other perversion-related diseases are already out there - it's just that AIDS gets the most press coverage.

That "regimen of antiviral drugs" that gay men will be using in lieu of condoms... who's paying for that?

Not that protected class, I'm certain.

Fallen man’s undying search for consequence-free sex marches on ... Might as well be looking for a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.

It’s early days yet and these are some pretty big claims we’re hearing. Remember AZT, the first treatment for HIV? It probably killed more patients than the disease.

And then they will, once again, demand that Society spend hundreds of billions of $$ to cure it.

Yea, it’ll be so much easier to get men and women to take a daily pill than to use a condom on occasion or abstain...

Oh gee. I’ve always thought AIDS was a gift from God to allow the queers to be self-annihilating.

And folks will “forget” to take their pill for a while, and those last two or three viruses that were about to die will recover and multiply, creating even more virulent diseases, just like with bacteria.

You really think God would send an affliction that kills righteous and wicked alike? Or do you think hemophillia is a moral failing?

“Remember AZT, the first treatment for HIV? It probably killed more patients than the disease.”

As far as I’m concerned they’re sparring with God and too damned stupid to know it; they lose.

many, many sodomites want to have hiv/aids. they are bug chasers, specifically having sex with multiple infected men to catch it. they feel they aren’t a genuine homo without it.

so the whole idea of a preventative pill is not wanted by a lot of sodomites.

Bug chasera. I’ve heard of that. I wonder what in the heck is going on in their minds?

It would mean a 50-fold increase in the number of prescriptions for the drug, Truvada — to 500,000 a year from fewer than 10,000. The drug costs $13,000 a year, and most insurers already cover it.

A quarter of the adult population has an STD, though herpes is a large chunk of that. Over a generation of “safe sex” lectures, and we don’t have it. We do have a sexually active population at all levels spreading disease.
Multiple antibiotic resistant gonorrhea is already here, spreading among gays.
And antibiotic resistant syphilis and other STDs are poised to literally go viral once everyone thinks it is safe to ditch the protection they are hardly using now.

AIDS is a queers disease. It's true that in the early days some heteros unfortunately got AIDS via a blood transfusion from a gay person. Today, with testing, that's a thing of the past.

I'm not sure what AIDS has to do with hemophilia [congenital tendency to uncontrolled bleeding; usually affects males and is transmitted from mother to son]

You mean, like, . . heart disease, cancer, flu, pneumonia, food poisoning, etc?

Because in the early days of the disease they were one of the largest non-homosexual risk groups due to their need to get blood products.

You think God sent a plague to get them too?

Do you consider cancer to be God’s wrath against the wicked?

Everyone dies. The death rate is 100%. Unfortunately, the innocent will always suffer due to the sins of others. It’s astonishing how many people are impacted by the sin of one man. It’s more miraculous how many people are blessed by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
