Who’s Scared of Monkeypox? Not Me.

by Kerry Dougherty

Read the increasingly hysterical stories about monkeypox and you’ll learn that public health officials are “scrambling,” “grappling” and “struggling.”

They don’t know what to do to slow the spread of this nasty, but rarely fatal disease.

The WHO has declared a public health emergency, its highest level of alert. The Biden administration may do something similar soon now that 3,591 Americans have been infected. That will supposedly free up more vaccines or something.

The fact is, these “experts” know EXACTLY what to do. They just won’t do it.

Let’s be brutally honest here. So far, the WHO says 98% of the cases are in gay men who have multiple sex partners. Often strangers. Yet the same experts keep warning the rest of us not to be complacent about monkeypox.

We’re not complacent. We just don’t engage in behavior that puts us at risk. We have more important things to worry about. Like a recession.

Here, read what NBC reported about the outbreak:

The World Health Organization recently reported that the monkeypox outbreak continues to primarily affect men who have sex with men who have reported recent sex with new or multiple partners.

This includes its finding that of the nearly three-quarters of men who provided a sexual history, the median number of sexual partners they reported during the previous three months was five, with one quarter of the men reporting 15 or more.

One quarter of those sick with monkeypox had 15 or more partners in the past three months? Is it just me or is that quite a lot of bed hopping?

During the previous month, 1 in 5 of the men reported they had taken drugs during sex, and one-third had sex at a sex-on-site venue.

Hold the phone. SEX-ON-SITE venues? I’ve never been to one of those and I bet you haven’t either, whether you’re straight or gay.

How about public health officials tell governors to shut down these oases of orgies for awhile? After all, they didn’t hesitate to close my church during COVID.

Look, having sex with multiple, random partners is dangerous no matter your sexual orientation.

Do you suppose anyone at one of these respected public health organizations has given any thought to a public health campaign promoting monogamy?

Of course not. Too preachy.

Not that public health officials balked at preaching to healthy Americans during COVID.

In fact, they seemed to enjoy it. Remember when idiot governors followed the advice of experts and ordered us to stay home? Remember how they closed our businesses, mandated we wear masks in public, stop gathering in groups larger than 10, be home by midnight and let our loved ones die alone in nursing homes?

Felt a tad preachy — not to mention, unconstitutional — to me.

All they have to do now is close sex-on-site venues and launch a sex-with-strangers-is-dangerous campaign aimed at the small segment of the gay community that engages in this risky behavior.

They won’t do it, for appearing homophobic or prudish.

And this is why public health organizations have no credibility.

    Get some popcorn and enjoy the show as the wheels come off the world.

  2. 3500 infections and it’s a ‘health emergency’?

    Over 100,000 Americans killed by ChiCom exported, MexCartel produced, and Joe ‘Open Border’ Biden imported Fentanyl isn’t.

    Anyone see a problem with this?

    I’m not too worried about monkey pox. It’s the donkey pox that has my attention.

    This is a very dangerous article. It’s dealing in hard, cold, irrefutable facts. You’re not supposed to do that. Today facts don’t matter. Only the feelings of a minuscule minority of our population matter, no matter how irrational.

      re: facts. Nope. It’s her beliefs and it illustrates things she does not know or understand with respect to how contagious diseases work. NOT confined to only “gays”.

      She represents a good number of folks who basically promote misinformation IMO.

    Now, given the slowness in tranfer,i.e., contact v. respiratory, all that contact tracing software will come in handy.

    I think Kerry epitomizes the ignorance that in in play with regard to understanding the reality of contagious diseases.

    You can get monkeypox even if you are not gay and don’t engage in sexual relations. It might start in Gay folks but in time it can and does “jump” to others and it doesn’t care if you are gay or not when it infects you, doesn’t care if you are a heterosexual woman or a pregnant woman or a child or and older person.

    It’s a contagious disease and it can an does spread to humans.

      She recommends that promiscuous “gay folks” stop bed hopping. Seems both reasonable and caring.

        what they do or do not do is not what contagious disease is about in the rest of the population. Her attitude is one of ignorance of public health and contagious diseases in favor of displaying her intolerance and condemnation of others.

        Once monkey pox jumps to other folks who don’t “bedhop” or act promiscuously, then what is her view when a pregnant woman or a child get infected?

        We got too many like her already, more than enough.

    HIV was the “gay plague” at first too.

    But, think about pox transfer mechanisms the next time you sink into those nice “clean” sheets at the Key West Hilton…

    Cheer up, the same virus used in the smallpox vaccine you got when you were 8-years old is the same virus used in the monkeypox vaccine, and believe or not, there remains a vestige of efficacy.

      You have a vivid imagination Nancy. The Key West Hilton? Well, I can almost relate. I was living at the Key West Naval Air Station when a man spontaneously kissed me. My mother did nothing to intervene! She called him “President Truman,” so I guess she decided to let it go.

      Sorry, Nancy, you’re not naive, you are a delusional alarmist. The world cannot come to a grinding halt every time a virus pops that affects .0000001% of the world’s population.

        Ya know, in every great plague that was there is a moment, however brief, where the disease affected EXACTLY that same percentage of the world’s population.

        I must have missed the part where NN said he wanted to bring the world to a grinding halt over monkey pox.

        His point is valid. HIV/AIDS was not taken seriously at first. In fact it was largely ignored by most of our society for quite a while. Long enough that it ended up in our blood supply in some areas.

        Writing off monkey pox because one is not a member of the first demographic seriously affected by the disease may not be wise. Perhaps we should learn from history.

        There is certainly no reason to panic over monkey pox, but likewise there is no reason to be glib about it.

          We can see if Dr. Fauci learned anything from the boondoggle of HIV that he was a part of.

    Is Kerry saying she is not worried about contracting monkeypox because she believes it is only transmitted through sex…? That seems to be what she is saying…

      A fact for which hubby is grateful, no doubt. Wait’ll Marberg gets here.

      It’s amazing. “So long as the virus has the common decencies to remain as a communicable disease among a class to whom I am not a member, why worry?”

      SexEd, NOW!

    Exactly this is just yet another massive distraction to keep people from realizing how much their ahole hurts, not from homosexual sex, but stagflation.

    A top Soros employee went wild at a Gay pride event and got it. The details so awful that I cannot repeat them.

    Another nasty disease on fire by promiscuous sex without boundaries homosexual men- a pet diversity of the Democratic Party. No wonder Fauci retiring.
