Monkeypox has been in the news a lot over the last week, and experts now say the current outbreak was fueled by two gay sex orgies in Spain and Belgium.
A leading adviser to the World Health Organization described the unprecedented outbreak of the rare disease monkeypox in developed countries as "a random event" that might be explained by risky sexual behavior at two recent mass events in Europe.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Dr. David Heymann, who formerly headed WHO's emergencies department, said the leading theory to explain the spread of the disease was sexual transmission among gay and bisexual men at two raves held in Spain and Belgium. Monkeypox has not previously triggered widespread outbreaks beyond Africa, where it is endemic in animals.
"We know monkeypox can spread when there is close contact with the lesions of someone who is infected, and it looks like sexual contact has now amplified that transmission," said Heymann.
Over 90 cases have popped up across the U.S. and Europe in recent weeks.
U.K. officials have said "a notable proportion" of the cases in Britain and Europe have been in young men with no history of travel to Africa and who are gay, bisexual or have sex with men. Authorities in Portugal and Spain also said their cases were in men who mostly had sex with other men and whose infections were picked up when they sought help for lesions at sexual health clinics.
If this has a familiar ring to it, consider the initial CDC report on HIV in June 1981, where it detailed 5 gay men who had presented with the disease. Also consider the past 30 years, where men who have sex with other men have been shown to be much higher risk for HIV/AIDS, as well as other sexually-transmitted infections.
Of course, the media wants you to stop criticizing sexual behaviors that go against nature RIGHT THIS INSTANT.
From the article:
See? The vast majority of patients are men who had sex with other men and the virus likely spread from gay sex parties, but stop that thoughtcrime right now, you bigot!
Or, alternatively, we could tell people to repent of their sinful behavior and live according to God's designs, which are for our benefit!
(If you think this take is spicy, try looking up a few of the things I said back in the good ol' reign of King Edward VI of England. Someone tried to shoot me through my front window, so I can handle your keyboard rage.)
I'm sure monkeypox can infect all sorts of people who have wanton sex with random, infected strangers, so I'm not here to simply single out one type of sexual deviancy.
But I'll just leave you with this passage from Romans 1 before I get back to my coffee:
For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
