Skip to comments.‘Not a simple answer’ for desert’s syphilis problem

Can somebody 'splain that to me?
How can S.F be #1, if P.S has twice the rate?
I disagree with the title. There is a simple explanation. Don't stick your d**k where it doesn't belong.
When not even 29 Palms is enough....think of the dire consequences of that desert booty...
I guess S.F. is #1 in absolute numbers, and P.S. is #1 in rate per 1000 people...
Publik edumacated, nu meth?
Uh, don't have sex with people who have Syphilis?
SF has a very large population and thus more total cases. PS has a higher rate but less total.
there is an extremely easy cure for syphillis -- unfortunately the left-wing radical pigs haven't the slightest idea what the meaning of the words:
nor do they know the meaning of most of the words the majority of America lives by.
Amazing how they like to hide this factoid about most of the inreases in syphilis.
To stop VD transmission (All forms!) simply stop screwing around.
Gee, well thanks! So nice of you to warn us instead of actually doing something to stop it in your own community.
Gay frisco do to the Gays has the highest number of reported cases.
This area now has the highest % increase.
Agreed. For the past few years, the gay community has reverted to bathhouse sex--only now, they have huge resorts in Palm Springs, Mexico and San Diego and on cruise ships where they do drugs and anonymous sex. There are some AIDS activists who have railed against it, but it is a very profitable business as despite talk of gay marriage, this is what most gay men like to do.
Amazing, isn't it? Liberals berate us for smoking or being overweight. They say we are cutting our lifespans short and straining the health-care system, and call for cigarettes to be outlawed and fast food to be taxed - and both are vilified. Yet they turn around and not only celebrate the gay lifestyle, but demand that it be deemed a civil right - even though a gay lifestyle takes a good 20 years off the average gay male lifespan.
Don't kid yourself. The heterosexual men would like it too, but the women refuse to go along.
I think the SF ranking is by City and the Palm Springs ranking is by region--the Coachella Valley.
Ah, c'est la vie. This is why women live longer!
In fact, experts said local health departments and the Desert AIDS Project are doing virtually everything that can be done to stop the spread of syphilis: public education and testing.
Everything except telling the truth - that "gay" sex is inherently dangerous and health destroying, and that no one has to be "gay".
"Theres not," Do said, "a simple answer.
There is a very simple answer but Mr. D'oh doesn't want to hear it.
Another comment in the article was that it's not just a "gay" problem - that it will spread into other "communities" (I loathe that word when referring to groups by what their sexual practices are) by way of bisexuals. That's too rich. They tried to tell us that all of us normal people were going to get AIDS, too. It didn't happen.
Let me and Scripter know if anyone wants on/off this pinglist.
I am not being callous about this. I am very sorry about people, whoever they are, getting horrible diseases. But if they contract such diseases because they engage in deviant, unnatural and unhealthy sexual practices that they KNOW are risky, they not only bring it upon themselves, but knowlingly infect others.
All the while propagandizing to recruit new brethren (victims) and use OUR tax dollars for ineffectual and craven public health policies.
Everything about that predilection is foul.
illegal mexican aliens?
Speak for yourself.
Disease runs rampant in the homosexual community.
I'm not at risk.
Wait a minute, yes I am. I'm at risk of losing more tax dollars to find amoral "cures" and "prevention" for diseases that are perfectly curable and preventable.
"The disease, health officials say, is being spread in the desert almost exclusively by gay men, many of whom are also HIV-positive. "
And we're being "bigots" by not letting these people marry? They obviously don't give a damn about what they spread and to whom... and I don't give a damn about them.
Clintonista Math at work.
We suggest that this sort of information be required to be taught in any school in which they tell young people that homosexuality is an "alternate life style" not to be regarded as wrong.
No - it's perfectly legitimate, if you consider that the town with the highest absolute numbers of cases is #1. I figured that out after a couple of minutes, but it didn't sink in at first.
Homosexuality is embraced by the likes of NEA, Planned Parenthood, HRC and taught in our schools disguised as a tolerance program!
The wording of the article makes it clear that this is mainly a "gay" problem. Every time someone says, "It's not just gays," you can be sure that it is mostly gays.
One of the most common is that gay men have begun engaging in risky sexual behavior because theyve grown tired of the safe sex message, or are no longer concerned about AIDS.
Duh! Ya' think!!!!
Here's another theory: The Syphilis Fairy is a homophobe making her rounds disproportionately among innocent gay men -- all at John Ashkroft's command, of course. I mean, the whole thought that an STD could be spread by promiscuous and unprotected sex is just too outlandish to believe!!!!!
Guess I am a bigot, too. These people are perverted deviants who are being allowed to adopt innocent children, thereby exposing them to this sick behavior. DESPICABLE!!
Keep moving...no problem here...nothing to see...this isn't a sexual problem...keep moving!
A map of different STDs and their county infection rates compared to a "red and blue county" election map might prove interesting.
Yes, if we had maps showing by county or city, the red and blue zones with the STD rates, murder rate and armed robbery rates, it would be very interesting.
And all this time I thought the rattlesnakes were the most hazardous thing about walking thru the desert...make sure ya put your shoes on, folks!
