Activists Upset Mexico And Brazil Governments “Didn’t Do Anything” On Monkeypox

This is what happens when people are taught that government is the be all, that everything requires government action, that personal responsibility doesn’t exist

‘The government didn’t do anything’: Mexican, Brazilian monkeypox responses draw concern

Francisco’s lesions started after returning home to Mexico City from California in late June: First, two spots on his buttocks. Then, a week later, lesions all over his body, his mouth so full of sores that he could barely talk or drink water.

“The pain was indescribable, catastrophic,” said Francisco, 44, who asked Reuters to conceal his real name.

Francisco had one of at least 59 monkeypox infections confirmed in Mexico since May, which experts believe could undercount the true number.

In Latin America, Mexico ranks behind Brazil and Peru for confirmed cases of the viral disease, which has primarily spread among gay and bisexual men like Francisco.

The World Health Organization declared monkeypox a global health emergency on July 23, prompting greater attention from regional officials. However, some doctors and activists in Latin America’s two largest countries told Reuters the response has been too tepid.

“We are not seeing the necessary measures taken, nor the necessary importance given to monkeypox,” said Dr. Sergio Montalvo, a sexual health specialist in Mexico City.

It’s pretty easy: don’t go to California to attend what’s being termed “men on men sex”, especially in large groups. The medical folks and even the news has been saying from the beginning, back in May, that the primary spread of monkeypox was occurring amongst gay men, especially at their superspreader parties. People like Francisco were told. If he and the others do not want to listen, well, the “activists” should be telling them “don’t go to those parties if you don’t want to catch it.”

“In these two months, we could have already made significant progress,” said Ricardo Baruch, an LGBT health researcher who helped organize a protest in Mexico City last week to ask for greater efforts to target prevention to men who have sex with men (MSM).

And what efforts does Ricardo want? He should be saying “don’t have men on men sex at big parties.” Why is it the job of Government? Play stupid games win stupid prizes.

Dr. Andrea Vicari, PAHO’s director of infectious threat management said it was not too late to curb monkeypox’s spread in the Americas.

“Even if we don’t have vaccines, we have other control measures. If we implement these well, we will be able to accomplish our objectives to reduce transmission.”

We don’t need vaccines. Don’t have men on men sex.

    I imagine they are desperate to shut down the country and what better way than Covid/MonkeyPox?

    A new CBS poll shows a statistical tie among Hispanics in the 2022 generic ballot.

    Context: Democrats won Hispanics by 40 points in 2018.

    This is a seismic shift in American politics.

    Mayhap they will need more than 22 million extra votes in November.

    Our distinguished host quoted:

    “The pain was indescribable, catastrophic,” said Francisco, 44, who asked Reuters to conceal his real name.

    Now, why did Francisco want his identity concealed? It’s because he knows that he will be revealed as a homosexual male, and that is something of which he is not proud, at least not proud enough to be publicly so known as being.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Mx Dana is once again a long distance mind reader!

      Perhaps Mr Francisco has not told his family that he is gay. Perhaps in Mexico there is a risk being IDed as gay.

      He may be perfectly proud but feels entitled to his privacy.

      It would be like a cunnie having the fact that they have a Viagra prescription publicized. It’s no one’s business.

      • James Lewis says:

        Dear Elwood:

        As was said when the AIDS epidemic first hit…

        Sport fucking is out.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Mx Lewis,

          That is not related to the point made. Mx Dana claimed he knew that Mr Francisco wanted his name kept out of the news because he wasn’t proud being gay.

          We understand that cunservative Xtians hate LBGTQ people. Religious fundamentalists have any number of bizarre beliefs. Where fundamentalist Muslims are in control of the governments gays are killed. How would you control gays if you were in charge?

          • James Lewis says:

            Dear Elwood:

            The best way to keep your name private, no matter what your reason, is to not engage in acts that cause loss of privacy.

            Like I wrote, “Sport fucking is out.”

            And no you don’t understand anything. Christians love the sinner but hate the crime.

            As for your attempt to insult……If Gays can’t control themselves, why should I bother?

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Mx Lewis,

            Cunsurvative Xtians have always been obsessed with the sexual activities of others. Why is that? Is it the biblical invocations to murder homosexuals?

            Not everyone is as strong as the cunsurvative Xtian who only has sex in marriage and only for procreating, not for pleasure. Biological evolution only “cares” about the selfish spread of DNA, and “cares” only in a mathematical sense.

            For those with beliefs in the supernatural, why was sex made so pleasurable? Was it as a test?

          • James Lewis says:

            Dear Elwood:

            What is this? A 20 question game complete with meandering claims and oh so clever spelling?

            The argument over sexual mores has gone on for decades but here we have only the transmittal of a disease by close, and frequent, skin to skin contact. Science and common sense argues that attending orgies, gay or straight, would be a no no.

            As I wrote, “Sport fucking is out.”

          • Dana says:

            Well, he certainly isn’t proud enough of being homosexual to want too many other people to know it!

            How would you control gays if you were in charge?

            There would be no special ‘rights’ or protections for homosexuals beyond what everyone else has, nor would same-sex ‘marriage’ be allowed, because that infringes on normal people’s rights.. If they wanted to shack up, that would be their business, not the state’s.

          • The catholic but not Catholic Elwood P. Dowd says:

            And how does marriage infringe on anyone else’s rights? Because of the privileges associated with marriage?

            Are you arguing that the privileges that accrue with marriage discriminate against the unmarried??

        • The Liberal but not libertarian Elwood P. Dowd says:

          And other than Mx LGB, no commenter here has proudly discussed their own sexual preferences.

          Spanking? Doggie style? 69? Bondage? Porn? Oral?

          Are you not proud?

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Interestingly, from today…

            One Trump supporter who is intimately involved in politics, and who requested anonymity so he could speak candidly, put it to me this way last week: “The left plays dirty. They’re smashmouth all the time. They insult and degrade and attack, and they’ve done that for years. I think it’s inevitable that this new wave of GOPers”—Trump and the countless Republicans who emulate him—“has emerged that wants to go toe-to-toe with them. And frankly, most people I talk to say it’s about time.”

            Is he not proud to be a trump supporter?

      • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

        I always wondered what on earth would make a faggot “proud”. Why would one be proud to be a pervert? A person who butt fks other men? A corksucker? Makes no sense. Curing cancer is a reason to be proud. Being the tail end of human evolution is not.

        BTW, a prescription is no ones business but a group of people who hold parades, groom children, rape and assault people are our business. They make it our business by making it their sole reason to breathe. Fags are flashy. If they want privacy stay in the closet, don’t hold fag shows and parades and stop with the Tic Tok but most of all keep your paws off children.

          LGB,

          What’s a greater “crime”, gay sex or irresponsibly knocking up girls so that they get abortions? Gay men are rarely if ever responsible for abortions.

          No doubt you’re married to a woman and have sex within the confines of christian marriage. Good for you. Realize that gays and lesbians have only recently had the privilege of legal marriage (likely to be lost). Unbelievably, we’ve heard rumors that some unmarried cunsurvative christian reprobate men still have sex with others! How can that be? It’s almost as if men have no self-control.

          Most pedophiles prefer the opposite sex, although many Republican men also desire young boys. DonJon tRump raped a 13 year old girl along with his buddy Epstein. The Republican Speaker of the goddamn House of Representatives, Dennis Hastert, used to bang boys!! Rep Gym Jordan (R-Hell) looked the other way as his friend molested at least 177 young men at The Ohio State University. Rep Matt Gaytz (R-Sodom) has been accused of trafficking teen girls.

          • The pro-prenatal infanticide Mr Dowd wrote:

            What’s a greater “crime”, gay sex or irresponsibly knocking up girls so that they get abortions? Gay men are rarely if ever responsible for abortions.

            Given that you support prenatal infanticide, I’m not certain why you would see any problem here, save perhaps the money.

            No doubt you’re married to a woman and have sex within the confines of christian marriage. Good for you. Realize that gays and lesbians have only recently had the privilege of legal marriage (likely to be lost).

            Sadly, it is rather unlikely that we will outlaw same-sex ‘marriage’, but even if we did, there is nothing which would make illegal homosexual activity among unmarried homosexuals.

            Most pedophiles prefer the opposite sex

            There is no actual proof for that statement, and quite a bit for the opposite. The John Jay Report, which studied allegations of Catholic priests, all males, abusing minors, found that 81% of the victims were boys, not girls. Given that the Centers for Disease Control found that only 1.6% of the population are homosexual, with another 0.7% being bisexual, it would seem that a very disproportionate percentage of pedophiles prefer the same sex, not the opposite sex.

          • The catholic but not Catholic Elwood P. Dowd says:

            There is no such thing as prenatal infanticide.

            The inimitable Mx Dana’s perfectly valid religious beliefs has him condemning raped children to unintended and unwanted motherhood. He supports freedom and civil rights for zygotes and blastocysts but not children or grown-ass women.

            Mx Dana proclamations did get us to thinking about ways to block endometrial implantation. The ball of cells expresses L-selectin which recognizes the complex carbohydrate sialyl Lewis X (sLex). Without this L-selectin/sLex interaction the ball of cells cannot implant. sLex contains fucose so inhibitors of fucosyl transferases would inhibit implantation. Flooding the uterus with soluble sLex or more effectively, multivalent sLex would also block implantation. Enzymes that cleave endometrial sLex would block implantation. Small inhibitory RNAs (siRNA) that reduce the expression of L-selectin or the enzymes needed to synthesize sLex would block implantation. The FDA has already approved an siRNA based drug for other indications.

            sLex levels appear to be related to the incidence of spontaneous abortions.

            Would the biochemical blockade of implantation be considered abortion?

            It’s already likely that certain hormonal treatments reduce sLex or L-selectin, blocking implantation.

  3. The activists, greatly upset that the name “Monkeypox” will somehow lead to discrimination against blacks and homosexuals, want the name of the disease changed, at which point “Schlong Covid” became a thing. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gif
