What kind of right wing thinking is this :rip:

 

Heterosexuals have just as much sex as homosexuals sometimes even more. If anything homosexuals are more aware of it and thus go more to the doctors

It’s not right wing thinking, it’s a fact. Any public health specialist agrees. Read ‘And the Band Played On’ which details the first decade of the AIDS epidemic. It never spread among straight people aside from unfortunate souls who got a bad blood transfusion and heroin addicts (because of shared needles). In general, gay men have MUCH higher rates of all STDs and it’s because of having much more sex with multiple partners. Go look it up. This is reality. You can accept it or not, it won’t change reality.

 

A lot of gay men are so surrounded by other gays and deeply ignorant of the average sex life of straight people that they do not realize that hooking up with a new guy every couple weeks (or much more often than that) is in fact NOT the norm whatsoever outside of gays.

It’s not gays, it’s men in general.

 

Straight guys are just as horny if not more than gay guys, the difference is that women keep them in check and aren’t as promiscuous so they simply don’t have as much opportunities to hookup. If they could, trust me they would.

 

Also STDs like HIV are more likely to spread through anal sex which obviously gays have more of.

You also get scarring over your whole body

I wasn’t downplaying it, I just pointed out it wasn’t incurable which is misinformation. It’s still horrific though and should obviously be taken very seriously.

I believe the 1 in 10 death rate is for a different strain to the one found in Europe so far, also death rates are unfortunately higher in kids.

this is scary and really strange how it is popping up everywhere now. it is very unlike the virus to spread like this. usually it has a very hard time spreading between humans :chick2:

 

i know some people are saying “don’t panic” and they are right, we shouldn’t be panicking. but this is extremely unusual for this particular virus to be spreading in the way that it is. we should definitely be concerned.

 

as a part-time london gay, im gonna serve first lockdown levels of caution :giraffe::giraffe:

That's the Congo strain. The West Africa strain (aka the one in Europe) is less than 1% in WEST AFRICA, with infinitely less healthcare measures. It's not about downplaying it's about the facts we have now and not create people to panic already. The most important thing is that it doesn't transmit easily.

Out of the 50 direct contacts of one patient, only one has caught it over some time, still soon to say this strain will be barely contagious but it makes sense with previous data we had about monkeypox.

What kind of bull at straight men not hooking up with new people each week. I guess sex work is only gay. Just quit with the lies. Also last we checked globally highest hiv infections to this date is straight folks, this is based on the population affected.
