From the Washington Post news section:

As monkeypox strikes gay men, officials debate warnings to limit partners

Sex is a major driver of the global outbreak. But health officials and longtime HIV activists say calls for abstinence don’t work.

By Fenit Nirappil and Amrita Jayakumar
August 4, 2022 at 6:54 a.m. EDT

Jason, left, and Sergio pose for a portrait July 31 at the Dore Alley kink and fetish festival in San Francisco. The festival took place days after city officials declared a state of emergency over monkeypox, which has disproportionately affected gay and bisexual men.

SAN FRANCISCO — Thousands of gay men clad in leather, latex — and often much less — partied along Folsom Street here last weekend during the annual kink and fetish festival. Even after the city had just declared the monkeypox outbreak striking its gay community a health emergency — one day after the World Health Organization urged men to sleep with fewer men to reduce transmission — San Francisco public health officials made no attempt to rein in festivities or warn attendees to have less sex.

As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention weighs whether to recommend limiting sexual partners, health officials in San Francisco, Chicago, New York and other U.S. cities battling surges disproportionately sickening gay men are avoiding calls for sexual restraint, wary of further stigmatizing same-sex intimacy.

Public health authorities typically emphasize safer sex over abstinence to prevent the spread of diseases through intimate contact. But monkeypox is presenting new challenges in calibrating the right message to stop the rare virus from becoming endemic while limiting government intrusion into the bedroom.

“If people want to have sex, they are going to have sex,” said California state Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco), who is involved in the city’s monkeypox response. “I know people who normally go to sex parties who will not. People will make their own decisions about their own risk levels.”

Many public health officials and activists who spent decades on the front lines of the battle against HIV/AIDS say they have learned it is futile to tell people to have less sex.

I suspect the covid whoop-tee-doo slowed down the sex lives of many, even some male homosexuals. But who can imagine comparing the government’s and the media’s response to covid to their response to monkeypox. Covid involved ordinary people doing ordinary things like attending weddings, while monkeypox is, so far, restricted to one of our leading sacralized groups consecrating their most sacred sacrament, the gay orgy.

That stance puts them at odds with the WHO, a top New York epidemiologist who condemned the city’s messaging and others within the gay community who say gay men deserve direct warnings before it is too late to end the outbreak.

“It was devaluing gay men’s lives and health not to warn gay men,” said Dan Savage, a sex columnist who has criticized the public health response to monkeypox. “Now, here we are, really on the verge of monkeypox being endemic in gay communities all over the world, and how is that for stigma?”

Savage, who is no prude as a proponent of non-monogamous relationships and exploring fetishes, said public health officials should have advised gay men to curb their sex lives at the start of the outbreak in May, which experts suspect was supercharged by large festivals in Europe with rampant sexual activity.

Savage is taking his own advice, limiting sex to his husband and his boyfriend and skipping San Francisco’s Dore Alley festival this year.

A dozen Dore Alley attendees interviewed by The Washington Post said they took monkeypox seriously — without the government scolding them to do so. … Several said they planned to avoid casual sex at afterparties.

Monkeypox dilemma: How to warn gay men without fueling stigma

In other words, how do we keep straight people from noticing the truth about monkeypox?

… San Francisco Public Health Officer Susan Philip said the city has learned over decades fighting HIV in coordination with LGBTQ organizations that messages of complete abstinence are ineffective and erode trust within the community.

Who can forget how from 1981 onward the San Francisco authorities demanded complete abstinence from promiscuous sodomy, instantly shutting down the bathhouses and gay bars?

Oh, wait … It turns out that didn’t happen. At all … Instead, San Francisco didn’t do any of that, and tens of thousands of San Franciscan gay men died.

Instead of shutting down Dore Alley, San Francisco officials focused on disseminating information about how the virus spreads to help people make their own choices. The San Francisco AIDS Foundation released a guide to a “filthy weekend — free of anxiety,” encouraging people to attend while taking steps to reduce risk, including dressing head-to-toe in leather or latex to minimize skin-to-skin contact.

But at the street festival itself, warnings about monkeypox were hard to find. Only one of the attendees interviewed said he received an informational pamphlet about the virus, even as organizers checked for proof of coronavirus vaccination.

Indeed.

Public health authorities worry about placing too much emphasis on sex as a mode of transmission because monkeypox also spreads in other ways.

Not at the moment, but in the the future, possibly (especially if monkeypox gets so common in gay men that it happens to randomly mutate to spreading more easily), children will be at risk due to the selfish hedonism of gay men right now. Therefore, QED, it would be wrong to call out the selfish hedonism of gay men today to prevent innocent children from suffering tomorrow.

Zandt Bryan, the sexual health and prevention program manager for the Washington State Department of Health, said urging people to have less sex unfairly places the onus on individuals to end the outbreak and distracts from other potential sources of transmission, such as dancing in packed clubs.

Maybe packed gay dance clubs should be shut down until monkeypox is under control?

“Approaching it from a purely [sexually transmitted infection] standpoint doesn’t really meet the challenge,” Bryan said.

Some critics of early coronavirus restrictions accuse U.S. public health officials of hypocrisy for telling Americans to forgo in-person schooling, religious services, and weddings and funerals to prevent the spread of coronavirus, while refraining from telling people to limit sex to contain the monkeypox outbreak.

Public health officials reject comparisons to the early days of the coronavirus pandemic, when they mandated masks and shut down public spaces. They noted that the novel coronavirus was unfamiliar, far deadlier and airborne, with hospitals overrun with patients at various points over the past two years. Monkeypox has known treatments and vaccines, although they have been challenging to access; it also has not killed anyone in the United States, and hospitalizations are uncommon.

On the other hand, monkeypox is somewhat more lethal in Africa than covid is in America. And the new gay version of moneypox may be different from the classic African version that mostly transmits from animals to people but seldom from people to people. And what about Long Monkeypox? (We don’t hear many reports of that because few women have contracted it so far), and women are a lot more likely to believe they are suffering from Long Covid than are men.) It’s possible that the new gay monkeypox has become a sexually transmitted infection. In general, who knows what the future might bring, and it would be easier to deal with its spread now — just by temporarily shutting down the most grotesquely extreme super-spreader events — than it might be in the future when it’s more commond.

… WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus in a news conference last week said the outbreak could be stopped by a collective effort of government and individuals. He said men who have sex with men should consider reducing their number of sexual partners, avoiding new ones, and exchanging contact information to allow for contact tracing and post-exposure vaccination.

WHO officials said asking for temporary changes in sexual behavior is a modest step many gay men are already taking.

“It makes common sense: A reduced number of contacts equals a reduced risk of exposure,” said Andy Seale, a WHO adviser on HIV, hepatitis and sexually transmitted infections. “It’s really about sharing whatever data we get in a stigma-free, moral-free, not-making-any-judgments manner so individuals have access to the data and understand what we are seeing.”

Having not only a stigma-free, moral-free, not-making-any-judgments manner but a pro-gay orgy Pride Month endorsed by practically every major institution is how we got here. We might be able to halt monkeypox by having the same institutions devote comparable marketing budgets to making August 2022 into Shame Month.

Somehow, though, I don’t think that practical suggestion will be acted upon.

… Patrick Gallahue, a spokesman for the [NYC] health department, declined to comment on Weiss’s reassignment [for calling on gays to cut back on the orgies], but pushed back against his call for temporary abstinence.

“For decades, the LGBTQ+ community has had their sex lives dissected, prescribed, and proscribed in myriad ways, mostly by heterosexual and cis people,” Gallahue said in a written statement. “Our guidance and advice are grounded in science and history — including the scientific reviews of how poorly abstinence-only guidance has historically performed in preventing transmission of STIs — with this disgraceful legacy in mind.”

Remarkably, a huge fraction of Americans have been propagandized into believing that the AIDS crisis of the 1980s was caused not by the Gay Liberation of the 1970s, but by restrictions on gay self-indulgence in the more distant past.

Critics of recommendations to limit sexual partners say they fail to heed the lessons learned from decades trying to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic, with public health officials emphasizing safer ways to have sex with condoms and, more recently, daily pills that drastically reduce the risk of getting HIV and adherence to antiretroviral therapy that renders the virus untransmittable for those who are infected.

“We saw a lot of folks at the beginning of the HIV epidemic calling for the closure of public sex venues like bathhouses. That did not stop the spread of HIV.

Especially not in San Francisco where the bathhouses weren’t closed for many year. But, that’s not the point, the point is that the people calling for the closure of the bathhouses in San Francisco, not the people keeping them open, were responsible for the deaths of all those people infected at them, such as Michel Foucault. The logic is impeccable: the people calling for gays to have fewer orgies are the Bad People; and Bad Things, like dying of AIDS, must be caused by Bad People.

People still found ways to have sex,” said Tyler TerMeer, executive director of the San Francisco AIDS Foundation.

Gay rights activists are concerned messaging that comes across as disapproval of same-sex intimacy emboldens escalating attempts by the religious right to drive gay people out of public life, including movements around the nation to remove books about LGBTQ issues from school libraries and a new Florida law that bans instruction or classroom discussion about sexual orientation for young elementary school students.

Still, Jim Downs, a historian who has studied the history of HIV/AIDS, said the monkeypox outbreak has arrived in a much better environment for gay people.

“The difference now is public health authorities are not demonizing, pathologizing or criminalizing gay sex;

Who can forget how the public health authorities in San Francisco were demonizing, pathologizing or criminalizing gay sex in the 1980s?

In summary, The Establishment have been misleading the public about monkeypox for the same reasons it misled the public about AIDS in the 1980s and still does today: because gay men tend to be a powerful, privileged, and selfishly hedonistic group who are risky to offend.

    The homosexual thing is far from unique. In general, minoritarians have been exceptional in inserting themselves into comfy sinecures in–what are supposed to be–public institutional and using them to do “public bad”.

    This is one of the reasons we simply need separation. Get these parasites from leeching off of normies and rebuild necessary public institutions that actually look out for the normies–the nation–that produces and pays the bills … and wants to survive.

    Having not only a stigma-free, moral-free, not-making-any-judgments manner but a pro-gay orgy Pride Month endorsed by practically every major institution is how we got here.

    Not only that but the mass expansion of PrEP from a harm reduction drug for prostitutes and those in relationships with HIV positive partners to a drug for circuit party aficionados who intend to use the drug to engage in risk compensation and put pressure on others to not use condoms.

    Basically as more and more guys in the circuit party subculture and even in the general gay scene got on PrEP so they could have condomless sex (Because they didn’t care about the other STDs) they put pressure on more and more risk averse gay men to go along or be left out and left out of less and less riskier sex.

    This has produced something akin to the environment that led to the rapid spread of HIV in the late 70s/early 80s. This was all foreseen but countless papers were written by people who claimed this wasn’t the case, that risk compensation wouldn’t occur.

    We have a magic tool which can solve these problems, they’re called condoms. None of this is ‘inevitable’.

    The only question is, will this new culture lead to mass outbreaks of HIV as a result of the assumption of PrEP usage gets high enough that people start ‘free riding’ on others use of PrEP to protect them (Truvada and other forms of PrEP can have no trivial side effects if taken for prolonged periods) and will it also lead to new diseases emerging.

    There is a report of an Ebola outbreak occurring after a man who recovered infected a sexual partner 470 days after a cessation of symptoms or identifiable virus in his blood. But it was still shedding in his seminal fluid at least 531 days later.

    Asymptomatic carrier of Ebola that can spread the disease through semen. If I were a gay man this would be what I’d be concerned about. A lot of the Western volunteers to outbreaks or staff who treat the rare cases in the West get infected with Ebola. Seems like you’re playing Russian roulette with a gay man not recovering and continuing to shed the virus in their semen. (There is also evidence of asymptomatic infections with Ebola)


    Resurgence of Ebola Virus Disease in Guinea Linked to a Survivor With Virus Persistence in Seminal Fluid for More Than 500 Days

    We report on an Ebola virus disease (EVD) survivor who showed Ebola virus in seminal fluid 531 days after onset of disease. The persisting virus was sexually transmitted in February 2016, about 470 days after onset of symptoms, and caused a new cluster of EVD in Guinea and Liberia.

  26. It is hilarious that they’re checking Covid vaccinations at MonkeyPox Ground Zero. Covid’s <1% fatality rate (of the earlier, more deadly, renditions of the virus) inspired the Karen brigade to completely lose their minds.

    Although it did dovetail with the rise of the Karens as screechy moral arbiters of our lives, Covid wouldn't have inspired anything like the insane levels it has done without Donald J. Trump in the White House. Deep State politicians finally found an issue they figured could derail the President (the public wasn't all that interested in supposedly corrupt Ukranian officials) and ran with it until it took a life of its own, and we are all living with the results.

    Same thing happened with Me Too. That movement would have had zero traction except that its proponents figured that Trump would be offender number one and completely lose the support of the Jeezus Peepul. While Me Too did claim scalps from all quarters, it shouldn't surprise anyone that leftist men tended to be much nastier and predatory than rightist ones.

    Obviously Biden is an empty suit, and not “trying to get” anyone to do anything. But that’s the point, someone behind the scenes — perhaps one of Yarvin’s wise elves — is using this empty husk of a man to forward the Nuke the Coasts strategy.

    I suppose the notion is that irrational restrictions and myths created a kind of pressure cooker that exploded into uncontrolled behavior, so the real villain is the puritanical spoilsports. It’s like the idea that if you lie to kids about marijuana (e.g. Reefer Madness) then when they find out it’s not so bad, they disbelieve all your valid warnings about other drugs.

    As you say, one might think the recurrent epidemics after “liberation” would render that implausible as an explanation, but they keep returning to it. That makes sense, since Leftism is a branch of Christianity, and both Communists and Christians keep insisting, despite all evidence, that Paradise is right around the corner if only we have faith and wait long enough. (Marx’s “scientific socialism” shows that the Workers State is inevitable, while Christians are told to wait and pray for the second coming. Taking action is heresy: “an infantile disorder” (Lenin) or “immanentizing the eschaton” (Voegelin and National Review cons)

    Sexual health charities and LGBT groups are calling for the government to step up efforts to control the monkeypox outbreak in the UK.

    In an open letter to Health Secretary Steven Barclay, they say that without a quicker and wider vaccine rollout, the virus could become “endemic”.

    There have been more than 2,600 cases of monkeypox in the UK so far, mostly among men who have sex with men.

    The Department of Health & Social Care (DHSC) says it is working “rapidly” to vaccinate those at risk.

    With two of the UK’s most popular Pride events, in Brighton this weekend, and Manchester later in August, many people are trying to get vaccinated in order to feel safer.

  41. I think the entire gay thing is massively overrated by the media.

    What is much more destructive is black dysfunction & crime, addled by white guilt tripping (the last 50 years) & debauchery, brainwashing & family breakup among whites.

    However, I don’t see red states closing down homosexual activities either. The gay clubs are still open here in Texas. I haven’t seen Ron DeSantis hold a press conference where he announced a commission to shut down bathhouses and pride festivals in Miami.

    Suspending a Soros prosecutor two years too late: weak sauce.

    Using Monkeypox as an excuse to eliminate every homosexual activist group in Florida: very based.

    Not quite instantly, but according to these sources, San Francisco did in 1984, NYC in 1985, Minneapolis in 1986 or ’88:

    So, that’s three, four, and five or seven years after the start of the pandemic. Wow–at the speed of lightning!

    Here’s some alternative/contradictory info from the NY Times from 1999 (Note especially the last paragraph.)

    [MORE]

    ….In New York City, where health officials estimate that there are 10 to 15 bathhouses, activities deemed unsafe by the state health code, including oral and anal sex, are prohibited. Only mutual masturbation is allowed. Yet, many gay men contend that oral and anal sex are routine behind closed doors in many bathhouses, as well as in gay theaters and in the back rooms of gay bars.

    In Los Angeles, where about a dozen bathhouses and sex clubs for gay men operate, officials allow men to have sex in places like bathhouses provided that they supply safe sex information and condoms.

    But here in the gay capital of the nation, opponents of the bathhouse proposal maintain that as a city that has suffered profoundly from the AIDS epidemic, San Francisco must act with extreme caution.

    While new cases of AIDS have dropped dramatically in recent years, from a high of 2,760 in 1992 to a low of 600 last year, these are still dangerous times for gay men here and elsewhere, the opponents say.

    With AIDS receding from the headlines and drug cocktails turning the disease from one that nearly everyone dies from to one that many learn to live with, health officials fear that a false sense of security is setting in. Recent anecdotal surveys show that more and more gay men, especially young men who have not seen the devastation wrought by AIDS, are practicing unprotected sex.

    Because San Francisco is a mecca for gay men, attracting many weekend and holiday visitors, what becomes the cultural norm of sexual behavior here could affect behavior elsewhere, the officials say. They contend that providing a place where men may engage in anonymous, unmonitored sex sends the wrong message and is counterproductive to public health.

    Mitchell Katz, the San Francisco health director, said that while there was no proof that bathhouse sex would lead to more HIV infections, “common sense strongly argues that more unsafe sex will occur in clubs that have closed rooms and no monitoring than in clubs that have monitors, insist that all patrons have safe sex and ask those who are having unsafe sex to leave immediately.”

    But bathhouse proponents argue that the opposition is not just about preventing AIDS. Behind the refusal to allow closed-door sex in bathhouses, they say, is a bigoted attitude that stereotypes gay men as libertines who cannot be trusted to engage in safe sex without being policed.

    The proponents contend that the safe sex message in sex clubs will not be lost just because men can close a door before they become intimate. In fact, they say, bathhouses, which historically have been places where gay men socialize as well as have sex, are conducive to safe, responsible sex.

    “I’m a gay man with AIDS, and I do not want to bring back gay bathhouses in San Francisco like they were run in the ’70s,” said Michael Petrelis, an outspoken proponent of allowing men privacy in public-sex venues. Rather, he said, he is proposing that the city model its bathhouses on those in Berkeley and San Jose, which provide condoms, safe sex education and testing for sexually transmitted diseases.

    Berkeley’s one bathhouse, the Steamworks, has been open since the 1970s, before AIDS was known. Berkeley health officials say the bathhouse employs a health educator and provides safe sex information to its patrons

    “We’ve taken the tack some time ago that you can’t regulate behavior, but you can regulate businesses,” said Leroy Blea, the Berkeley HIV-AIDS program director.

    But he added: “It’s a dangerous thing to point to Berkeley and say, ‘Oh, they have it there, why can’t we have it here?’ If the Steamworks had tried to open up today, I’m guessing it would have a very hard time. Our effort is in harm reduction.”

    San Francisco’s public sex regulations were adopted in 1997 in response to concern about unsafe sex taking place in sex clubs. The regulations, said Katz, are based on a 1984 court decision that allowed the bathhouses here to remain open as long as they mandated safe sex, and also by guidelines recommended in 1991 by a coalition of AIDS groups and operators of sex businesses.

    Yes indeed, and sadly there appears to be absolutely no middle ground between total, monastic abstinence and two hundred “partners” per week.

    “For decades, the LGBTQ+ community has had their sex lives dissected, prescribed, and proscribed in myriad ways, mostly by heterosexual and cis people,” Gallahue said in a written statement.

    “The administration has not made public health enough of a priority, Gonsalves said, charging that officials have alternated between saying there’s no problem and blaming the CDC.

    Gonsalves said he’s worried what will happen over Labor Day, when Black Gay Pride is celebrated in Atlanta. If action isn’t taken quickly to avert a superspreader event, “you might expect to see the virus seed itself across the rural South,” he said.

    “It’s horrible to think of a new endemic virus sinking its roots into the United States.”

    I don’t know what action he might mean besides just cancelling the event. He certainly paints a dismal picture. Was he too afraid of losing his job to come right and say what he thinks has to be done?

    Prof. Shmuel Shapira MD MPH (Col.), who served as Director of the Israel Institute for Biological Research between 2013 and 2021, suggested that the monkeypox outbreak was connected to mRNA vaccines.

    Last week, Twitter censored Prof. Shapira—who was “physically injured” after his third Pfizer vaccine—and forced him to remove a post which said: “Monkey pox cases were rare for years. During the last years a single case was documented in Israel. It is well established the mRNA vaccines affect the natural immune system.

    How Did Monkeypox Get Its Name?

    The monkeypox virus is found in several wild animals, such as rope squirrels, tree squirrels, Gambian pouched rats, dormice and non-human primates, among other species.
    It was first identified after two outbreaks in 1958 of a pox-like disease among lab monkeys in Denmark—hence the name—although monkeys don’t appear to be the primary carriers of the virus.

    “The virus was discovered before the human disease in laboratory monkeys in Denmark who had a typical rash,” Daniel Bausch, president of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, told Newsweek.

    “This gave rise to the name of the virus and disease, which actually turns out to be a misnomer, because monkeys are likely just like humans—an unlucky dead-end host that occasionally gets infected, but is not part of the maintenance of the virus in nature,” he said.

    “Big Pharma” isn’t a player in this domain at all. Remember that we’re talking about literally the oldest vaccine in existence, albeit we’re not sure how whatever Jenner was using was or became vaccinia. Serial passage through humans as it had to be propagated for a long time could do it, Wikipedia says it was recognized to not be cowpox but its own Orthopoxvirus species starting in 1939.

    Nobody is going to be mandating it unless it mutates and breaks out into the normal population. If that happens any time soon in the US also not “Big Pharma” already produced and stockpiled doses of a variety of the old bifurcated needle applied vaccinia vaccine will be used for at least the first 200 million people (only differences are one dominant out of the six Dryvax strains were used and grown in cell culture). And this vaccine is extremely well understood. Don’t know the old child dosing schedule for it but assume all of us who were born by around 1970 or before have gotten it. Outside the US assume ~1978, vaccination stopped worldwide in 1980.

    I won’t be cheering this … that would be insane. Better to stop it now but that’s not going to happen, best it is hopefully won’t mutate into a significantly more transmissible strain, something Rob and I have been speculating on. Cheering a replicating virus vaccine with its various issues? Again, insane. (The preferred one being dispensed now was attenuated by old fashioned serial passage and won’t replicate in humans, was first tested in West Germany 1977-80, 120,000 doses so is fairly well understood, has also been tested a bit in the Congo specifically against monkeypox.)

    You are frankly “fighting” an imaginary foe upon who you ascribe all sorts of insane things. Meanwhile in the real world people who except for the pediatric cases, now up to five, are getting what they deserve and are in for a world of hurt. “The wages of sin” this time aren’t death but lots of pain and ugliness, I thank the guy who blurred Andy Ngo’s pictures.

    Within a few months after Neely was hired, McMahon said, a patron whom she did not name — though others familiar with the matter, including Neely, have identified this person as the pastor’s wife — checked out several children’s books and refused to return them for a prolonged period of time. One of them was written by first lady Jill Biden and another was by Vice President Kamala Harris (Harris visited the library in 2019 to read hers). “Sometimes People March,” a book about activism that was checked out, referenced the Black Lives Matter movement and the Pride flag.

    McMahon corroborated that she had heard Kruckenberg and other patrons refer to Neely as “the gay man” in what she perceived as a negative way and that Neely had been the target of what she characterized as microaggressions from Kruckenberg.

    (Neely is an out gay man.)

    In November, the library board hired a new director. Renee Greenlee, a librarian with years of experience and a master’s degree in library and information science, was someone Neely thought “could fight this crowd back.”

    (“This crowd” being, y’know, moms, and Neely’s nominal bosses.)

  76. Public health authorities worry about placing too much emphasis on sex as a mode of transmission because monkeypox also spreads in other ways.

    Not at the moment, but in the the future, possibly (especially if monkeypox gets so common in gay men that it happens to randomly mutate to spreading more easily), children will be at risk due to the selfish hedonism of gay men right now. Therefore, QED, it would be wrong to call out the selfish hedonism of gay men today to prevent innocent children from suffering tomorrow.

    I think the pessimistic view of male homosexual behavior is the correct one in practice – no matter the risks they’re not going to stop engaging in multiple partner serially anonymous sodomy so the effect of cancelling a gay festival would probably be marginal especially if it’s close enough to the time of the event that travel plans for out of town sodomy enthusiasts have already been set. They’ll just meet on an app and do what they do in public restrooms and parks and what have you. Any serious attempt to limit the spread of monkeypox among gays would require the kinds of rousting that forged the gay political identity in the Stonewall riot and no one in California has the stomach to do that even if the cost of gay hedonism is a deadly pandemic that spreads to young children (they believe monkeypox can be spread on surfaces, which makes the “touches things and puts hands in mouth and rubs eyes” 1-8 years old demographic at high risk of contracting it, and its these young children who fare the worst from the virus).

    So when you just account for male homosexual behavior being a force of nature like storms or earthquakes all that is left is to not “stigmatize” a selfish but politically powerful constituency.

    “How dare they cancel weddings, which represent the formation of new heterosexual families with children, but allow these pervert and filfthy gays to have their sex parties.”

    1) Weddings did not cause the Fauci demic. Like any mass gathering they increase the likelihood of transmission. But that’s about it. In contrast, homosexual promiscuity–actually insane over-the-top promiscuity is the reason there is a monkey epidemic. Stop it and the epidemic is over.

    3) While I do not really care about weddings (the party part), they matter to the brides. And it actually is important to get marriages underway. Delaying marriages and children is an actual loss. Delaying homosexual orgies is no loss, but a huge positive.

    3) A man and woman joining in marriage to propagate the next generation actually is something valuable. It is the most important social interaction/institution people undertake.

When we accept that, we (a) join them in their manipulation and thus rob ourselves of dealing with the insanity, and (b) we validate their insanity. So please stop getting tricked into validating them and reducing your ability to fight insanity.

    Sex is the act, between an adult male and an adult female, using the sex organs of each, for the purpose of procreation. Only.  Of course, God has given the act pleasure, asan incentive, same as eating is pleasure. Of course to disconnect sex and pleasure, which is perverse, and to focus only on the pleasure, as if it were a God-given right, is perverse. Same as gluttons for eating.

    When you understand that you will understand rape: the act of an insecure male who does not have a reasonable chance of sex with the victim, to assert his procreative ability with said victim. Some would say it is an act of power, not sex, which is false, because it not rarely, produces a child.  So it is sex and impotent power.

    By that restored definition, any other act that uses the person’s sex organs is perversion:
    • anal “sex” is not sex (separately, placing your reproductive equipment where someone else collects their human waste is dangerous, potential suicide)
    • child “sex” is not sex, the child does not have mature sex organs or even understand what sex is (separate to the horrendous abuse)

    In medieval times, we knew that the entry point into the human body for the devil is the anus. Medieval drawings of the devil have his face on the butttocks.

    Sex is a major driver of the global outbreak [of monkeypox]

    False.

    Perversion is the only driver of the global outbreak [of monkeypox]

    Proof:
    • AIDS affects homosexuals, only.
    • Monkeypox affects homosexuals, only.

    Exactly.

    Now that they have obtained homosexual “rights”, via propaganda and programming, the next thing they are legitimising is pædophilia.  One major obstacle for us, one major weapon for them, is the purposeful detachment of homosexuality and pædopholia by the Jew media.  Case in point, one of many: here the DM trumpets about these horrible pædophiles, and carefully avoids mentioning that they are all homosexuals.

    Note, although the article is still available, in cannot be found in the DM search facility. DM does a good job of trumpeting, then hiding, stories about homos and pædos.

  101. I believe that the Folsom Street Festival is not exclusively gay; it does have plenty of straight leather & BDSM fetishists.

  102. Nico says:

    health officials and longtime HIV activists say calls for abstinence don’t work

    So they’re admitting that it’s impossible for gay men to have anything more graceful than a porcine sex life given the absence of choosy females and their family gatekeepers.

  103. @JR Ewing

    “It’s eventually not going to end well for them.” People keep saying that, and I hope it happens, but it never seems to happen. Quasi-normal people seem too preoccupied with sports, screens, intoxicants, etc to get around to organizing the backlash that is long overdue; though maybe we are seeing the beginnings of it in recent elections.

    Not thirty seconds before I read this the idea popped into my head. “We haven’t heard from Omar! I’ll bet he has a take on this.”

  105. Kylie says:

    I finally got around to reading Randy Shilts’s And the Band Played On. I was aware of the kinds of activities that gay men pursue in bathhouses. But I’d always assumed they did so while not really fully aware of the extraordinary health risks, kind of like how people once knew smoking cigarettes wasn’t really healthy because it made you cough but it was still okay and you could use it to keep your weight down.

    No. Shilts makes it clear gays knew sex in bathhouses was unhealthy; even before AIDS, it led to widespread STDs and compromised immune systems. But their self-indulgence caused them to battle fiercely to have their perversions enshrined in law and public perception as personal rights and freedom of self-expression.

    Shilts quotes “gay liberation activist”, Konstantin Berlandt, who died of AIDS in 1994:

    “Berlandt maintained it was society’s responsibility to find the medical technology to prevent all sexually transmitted diseases, rather than the gay community’s responsibility to keep sexuality in line with what medical technology could cure. As for safe sex, he wrote, ‘I don’t mean we can’t make such changes if absolutely necessary, but why must we?’”

    And that PrEP drug, Truvada, isn’t cheap, either.

    From WebMD:
    “How Much Does Truvada for PrEP Cost?
    By Stephanie Watson
    Medically Reviewed by Jonathan E. Kaplan, MD on May 09, 2022
    Truvada is a type of drug that helps reduce the risk of HIV infection…

    When you take Truvada every day, it can lessen the chance that you’ll get HIV from sex by about 99%, and from injecting drugs by about 74%. The one downside to Truvada is that it’s very expensive for people who don’t have health insurance.

    How much does a Truvada prescription cost?
    A month’s supply of Truvada is nearly \$2,000 without insurance (a generic version costs \$30-\$60 per month). Most private health insurance companies, Medicare, and Medicaid will cover the cost. By law, private insurers cannot charge copayments — the amount you have to pay out of pocket for the drug.

    In 2019, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force — a panel of disease prevention experts — recommended that doctors prescribe PrEP for anyone at high risk for HIV. That includes men who have sex with men, straight people who might catch HIV through sex, and people who inject drugs.

    Because of this decision, most health insurance plans are required to cover Truvada, its generic version, or the other PrEP drug, Descovy. If you’re in an at-risk group, you shouldn’t have to pay anything out of pocket. In the meantime, assistance programs could help you cover the cost of PrEP if you qualify for them.”

    Where did the Japanese practice of driving on the left-hand side of the road come from?

    Not Chris but seeing as he might not get back to this or soon in these dog days of summer, when Japan emerged from its isolationist period it copied what it believed to be the best of the world at the time, industrial revolution from Britain, Royal Navy from the same, and the French Army.

    (Except while they were in France it was trounced by the Prussians so they switched that focus and thus you hear a few loan words like the one for part time? work which as the same root the one for “worker” in the full name of the Nazi party, high solid neck Prussian style school uniforms as well as the standard jacket and tie etc.)

    A gross post, yes. Grosser still is that it’s only a slight exaggeration from what many public schools are presenting to students, beginning with kindergarteners.

  110. @Bill Jones

    You know what’s worse than linking Monkeypox to Sodomites?

    So how do you explain that 98% of cases are in gays?

    Are gay men getting a dozen COVID shots?

    Fucking with your immune system fucks your immune system.

    Butsecks with random men is bad for your immune system.

    That was true before monkeypox but the circus doesn’t allow anyone to say it.

    You see what happens when you f*ck a stranger in the ass? You see what happens? You see what happens?

    In the broadcast TV version, it was supposedly “find a stranger in the Alps”.
