I'm late but this is SUPER risky behavior. Most hetero folk use condoms to prevent pregnancy more than prevent STI transmission but it does the job (for the most part). Those on PrEP are still refusing to use condoms and having worked in public health with my friends who do work on STI and HIV prevention in the community they get frustrated because a lot of people ALSO working in the "community" who are also LGBTQ are telling them its okay to go without condoms if you're on PrEP. No one's sounding the alarm bc its LGBTQ folk engaging in this behavior.
What? So because it's LGBTQ look the other way instead of warning that this has lifelong implications for everybody? I mean...what?! Ga! My brain hurts. Smh. Mind blown.

Is it looking the other way or the authorities are too scared to stress to the lgbtq community that they are the most affected? I saw people on social media calling it persecution that lgbtq people were being mentioned in connection to monkey pox at all

It’s to prevent stigmatization and further marginalization of the LGBTQ community (really, gay and bisexual males, not lesbians). There is awareness of the way AIDS was ignored because it mostly affected “them” and thus was allowed to devastate the community for nearly two decades - the LGBTQ community and many public health officials don’t want that to happen again. Additionally, we also have the recent example of how Covid was framed as affecting black and Latino communities more, which led to complacency, indifference and outright refusal of mitigation efforts, and allowing that to happen will make it easier for monkeypox to spread and mutate, especially as this version already isn’t “behaving” as previous versions of monkeypox.

A similar thing is happening with the one polio case in New York. Word has gotten out on social media that the victim is from one of the Hasidic Jewish communities in Rockland county, which have previously had outbreaks of the measles, because a significant portion of the communities now refuse to vaccinate. However, in the news media, and in the public health announcements, there is great care not to mention the victim’s town, or anything that even remotely points to the Hasidic communities, (1) to prevent any resurgence of anti-Semitism, and (2) so people won’t get complacent and think it can’t happen to them, as there are several other anti-vax populations that are completely unrelated to the Hasidic communities.

The CDC says monkeypox patients should isolate themselves as long as they experience symptoms. If the patient’s household has children under 8 at home, they should consider isolating away from them, because young children, pregnant women, immunocompromised people and those with a history of atopic dermatitis or eczema are considered high risk.

Great.

I really hope this is fake. Using spoiler because some of it is gross. Basically a gay man attends a couple of orgies and gets monkey pox.
What did I just read?




Next pandemic loading in 3, 2, 1….. :nono:

Grrrlllll, all those encounters. :nono:


That's exactly how I felt reading that nonsense. He's out here like AIDS ain't a thing; like COVID don't exist; like herpes is a myth; like gonorrhea is an urban legend; like hepatitis is a fable...I could go on. He's basically behaving like he has a death wish.

If Covid-19 wasn't the wake up call, hopefully the mp will be, but I doubt since this is how he makes his money. He's not switching careers any time soon.

(eta; Apparently, the thread got nuked over there and his account went private after going viral.)

Ok, I was not prepared for all of that... Is this what going on in the streets... He is living so recklessly.

Maybe his behavior is indicative of gay sex workers and not gay men in general but I think I read that he makes money from only fans not prostitution so I don’t think his participation in these orgies was an occupational hazard. He just really wanted to be there.

And can we talk about how he was proud of all the urine he was drinking??? I naively thought you’d get sick from doing something like that. I know there’s an old thread here on urine therapy but I think that was just applying urine to skin for beauty purposes. Ideally baby urine… Anyway I didn’t realize golden showers involved swallowing. I thought people were just getting rained on. As gross as that is people found a way to top it.

Dang he was drinking urine? I thought it was a euphemism for something in the gay community. Geez what kinda cretin is he? No value for his life. :nono:

The photos of that poor girl just ruined my night! :nono: The way my stomach just turned and my trypophobia has been triggered. I’d rather lock myself in my house for the rest of the year than to risk contracting this. God help us all!
Gurl same! I have been staying strong trying to avoid Covid but seeing Monkeypox :barf: . I can not. I know it's my vanity but I do not want it at all! Back to disinfecting all my groceries and packages. I still mask but have gotten lax with wiping shopping carts etc. I do use hand sanitizer when I get back in the car. Just reminds me can't be out here slipping...

That girl sharing her monkey pox pics triggered my trypophobia something mad. I can look at a macerated pressure ulcer, diabetic gangrenous foot wounds and not blink. But that monkeypox pic is killing me softly.


And that twitter chat was SCUST.
He talmbout he pretty sure he didn't spread it to anyone. What lies ppl tell themselves. You have contacts with over 30 folks and you drink pee. You're nasty. You need to be locked into a room for a month.
