Sara Whitman: Gay Sex Equals Death! Again! Always!

Gay Sex Equals Death! Again! Always!

Oh, those gay men are at it again. Or is it antibiotic use?

In San Francisco on Monday, it was reported "A new variety of staph bacteria, highly resistant to antibiotics and possibly transmitted by sexual contact, is spreading among gay men in San Francisco, Boston, New York and Los Angeles."

Where did this new horror come from? Was it the gay men themselves that created it?

No.

In fact, "MRSA was first seen in several countries the 1960s. With increasing use of antibiotics, new strains of MRSA have developed over the past 20 years."

And, "The culprit is a form of MRSA, or methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, a bug that was once confined to hospitalized patients but, since the late 1990s, has been circulating outside medical settings, afflicting anyone from injection-drug users to elementary school students."

Wait... gay men having too much sex is causing elementary school students to get it?

I'm confused.

And I'm mad.

I'm mad because, like Sean Bugg wrote, "These kinds of infections have been a problem in medical settings for some time, but when a report comes out that attaches "gay" with "disease," everyone's certain to pay attention." ......(more)
