Recently, an LGBTQ+ internet influencer posted how he got monkeypox but when it started going viral he deleted the post and made his account private (the archive is still available). The man admits that despite being worried about COVID and the monkeypox he attended a birthday orgy. After attending the event, he ended up getting both viruses.
Why isn’t the CDC, WHO, NIH telling gay men to stop having sex?
In states like California, they shut down churches to “stop the spread” but don’t seem to be enforcing the same style of mitigation restrictions for the community that is mainly spreading monkeypox.
The double standard is large and in charge.
Not long ago, lockdown lover Yale epidemiologist Gregg Gonsalves used expletives to attack people moving on from COVID-19.
I’m just gonna say it. If you’ve been saying the pandemic is over, telling people to just get out there & stopping worrying about infection, all tied to the assumptions you are making based on your own pampered status, your absolute disregard for others, you can go fuck yourself.
Gonsalves is now singing a different tune regarding the gay community.
The answer isn’t shut down all these parties, tell gay men to stop having sex at them or dancing in close proximity to each other. It won’t work. It hasn’t worked for HIV or other kinds of infectious disease outbreaks among gay men. 4/
Madrid authorities have been working on tracing the cases mainly from a single outbreak in a sauna, regional health chief Enrique Ruiz Escudero told reporters on Friday. The word sauna is used in Spain to describe establishments popular with gay men looking for sex rather than just a bathhouse.
Escudero reported officials are examining links between the sauna and a pride event that drew around 80,000 people to the Canary Islands.
“The Public Health Department will carry out an even more detailed analysis… to control contagion, cut the chains of transmission and try to mitigate the transmission of this virus as much as possible,” he said.
That attitude has caused a surge in cases in New York City and Washington DC who have the most cases.
