The CDC is Afraid to Tell Gay Men to Stop Spreading Monkeypox
The Covid pandemic made one thing clear: health guidance is often influenced by anything but health. The “social justice” protests of 2020 are the most glaring example. After months of being made to look at our fellow Americans with suspicion and fear, pushing unhealthy isolation habits and scaring the bejesus out of anyone and everyone who still puts stock into mainstream news, suddenly massive crowds of people spit-yelling over each other’s shoulder was deemed “an acceptable risk” by our omniscient overlords at the Center for Disease Control.
Thus, it should be no surprise that the latest round of fear porn—the monkeypox outbreak—is being treated with the same political kiddie gloves for those in the protected classes. In this case, it is gay and bisexual men who must not be singled out for the spread of this supposedly terrifying disease, despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of spread is occurring with the gay and bisexual community.
I suppose I should give the CDC a little credit. After all, they did sent out an ‘alert’ to gay and bisexual men that monkeypox appears to be spreading in their community globally, warning people to take precautions if they have been in close contact with someone who may have the virus and to be on the lookout for symptoms.
But that alert couldn’t even be issued without a woke disclaimer emphasizing that, like HIV, monkeypox can be spread to anyone regardless of sexual orientation. Close contact with someone can be sufficient to spread the disease, although gay sex appears to be driving the spread at the moment.
What is Monkeypox?
Monkeypox isn’t a new disease. The first confirmed human case was in 1970, when the virus was isolated from a child suspected of having smallpox in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Monkeypox IS UNLIKELY TO CAUSE A NEW PANDEMIC. Monkeypox is rare and usually mild but yes, it can cause serious illness.
Monkeypox is often referred to as a cousin of smallpox. Monkeypox, smallpox, cowpox and vaccinia belong to a subset of the Poxviridae family of viruses called Orthopoxvirus.
From Scientific American:
While an animal reservoir for monkeypox virus is unknown, African rodents are suspected to play a part in transmission. The monkeypox virus has only been isolated twice from an animal in nature. Diagnostic testing for monkeypox is currently only available at Laboratory Response Network labs in the U.S. and globally.The name “monkeypox” comes from the first documented cases of the illness in animals in 1958, when two outbreaks occurred in monkeys kept for research. However, the virus did not jump from monkeys to humans, nor are monkeys major carriers of the disease.
Since the first reported human case, monkeypox has been found in several other central and western African countries, with the majority of infections in the DRC. Cases outside of Africa have been linked to international travel or imported animals, including in the U.S. and elsewhere.The first reported cases of monkeypox in the U.S. was in 2003, from an outbreak in Texas linked to a shipment of animals from Ghana. There were also travel-associated cases in November and July 2021 in Maryland. Because monkeypox is closely related to smallpox, the smallpox vaccine can provide protection against infection from both viruses. Since smallpox was officially eradicated, however, routine smallpox vaccinations for the U.S. general population were stopped in 1972. Because of this, monkeypox has been appearing increasingly in unvaccinated people.
How is it Transmitted?
It’s typically transmitted through contact with an infected person or animal or contaminated surfaces. It usually enters the body through broken skin, inhalation or the mucous membranes in the eyes, nose or mouth. Researchers believe that human-to-human transmission is mostly through inhalation of large respiratory droplets rather than direct contact with bodily fluids or indirect contact through clothes. Human-to-human transmission rates for monkeypox have been limited.Health officials are worried the virus may currently be spreading undetected through community transmission, possibly through a new mechanism or route. Where and how infections are occurring are still under investigation.
How Do I Know I Have It?
Symptoms usually don’t appear until one to two weeks after infection. It produces smallpox-like skin lesions, but symptoms are usually milder than those of smallpox. Many monkeypox carriers may mistaken symptoms for the flu, as it can involve classic flue symptoms such as fever, headache and shortness of breath. There are also more unsavory symptoms that often accompany monkeypox outbreaks. It is a pox, after all. According to doctors who have treated the latest outbreak, this strain seems to leave a rash as its calling card. Sometime within two weeks after infection, a rash can appear on the extremities, head or torso that eventually turns into blisters filled with pus.
In the words of Dr. John Brooks of the CDC:
Anyone with a rash or lesion around or involving their genitals, their anus or any other place that they have not seen it before, should be fully evaluated, both for that rash but particularly for sexually transmitted infection and other illnesses that can cause rash.
Overall, symptoms usually last for two to four weeks, while skin lesions usually scab over in 14 to 21 days. While monkeypox is rare and usually non-fatal, one version of the disease kills around 10% of infected people. However, THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF THAT PARTICULAR FORM OF THE VIRUS BEING IN CIRCULATION. The form of the virus currently circulating appears to be milder, with a fatality rate of less than 1%.
Is There Going to Be Another Vaccine Push?
There is no need for a monkeypox edition of Operation Warp Speed. The smallpox vaccine is mostly sufficient to rein in the disease, as the two are closely related.
Data from Africa suggests that the smallpox vaccine has been 85% effective against the monkeypox virus. You can receive the smallpox vaccine after being exposed to monkeypox, although most doctors advise that the sooner you get vaccinated after exposure the better.
The optimal time to receive the vaccine is within four days of leaving the bath house.
Biden’s handlers have announced that we have over 100 million doses of the smallpox vaccine in stock, which should be more than enough to cover those in need.
The point of this piece is not to bash or single out gay and/or bisexual men. The point of every piece I write is to tackle an issue head-on so that the reader leaves informed with no punches pulled. And that is what I am going to do right now, since our government lacks the spine to abandon political correctness for the sake of stopping a preventable disease.
Here is the truth:
Monkeypox is not covid and it’s not going to be covid. It is, however, a nasty disease to contract. Therefore we must be clear-eyed about where the main source of spread is and address it directly. Gay and bisexual men need to be extra cautious about their sexual practices. Innocent people are catching this disease because of careless promiscuity. That is the truth.
Yes, anyone can catch the disease, just like HIV/AIDS. But like HIV'/AIDS, the continued spread of monkeypox is largely contingent on the sexual activity within the gay community. If the gay community is not cognizant of the disease they’re (re)introducing to the world at large, they should be. And they should be told that it’s not okay to place one’s lifestyle above the health of the greater population.
We have been hounded for over two years to change our lifestyles drastically for the sake of limiting covid. The worst part was, most of the mitigation efforts were fruitless and created myriad societal problems of their own. In this case, abstinence (or at least monogamy) within the gay community is a mitigation effort that we know will actually work, but our “health officials” can’t bring themselves to say so.
This Yale epidemiologist sums up the new talking point for the “experts:”
Add promiscuous gay men to the list of people for whom viruses somehow act differently, along with George Floyd protesters, elites enjoying fancy dinners, politicians on vacation, et al.
The truly absurd part is monkeypox is nothing to be afraid of for the vast majority of the population. And for the one segment of the population that actually should be concerned, their so-called leaders don’t have the guts to say what they need to hear.
In the final analysis, those who live by Marxism surely die by it.
