!! OMG, quote of the day: Dr. Anthony Fauci says government response to Monkeypox must address anti-gay stigmas !!

Dr. Fauci, a pioneer in the fight against HIV/AIDS, said that the federal government must do everything it can to underscore make the population understand who the real “enemy” is.

“The enemy is the virus, not anybody who’s being afflicted with the virus,” he said.

According to the World Health Organization, the monkeypox virus is transmitted “from one person to another by close contact with lesions, body fluids, respiratory droplets and contaminated materials such as bedding.”

“We need to get our arms around understanding just the extent of the spread, how it’s spread, what population,” Fauci said.

“Right now it’s focused — because it’s about 99% among men who have sex with men. We’ve got to understand the modality of transmission, the manifestations, also the risk for people like children and pregnant women,” he added. “So we’ve got to reach out to the community, particularly men who have sex with men, get rid of anything that even smacks a little bit of stigma, and make sure we outreach to them.”

– Dr. Anthony Fauci, on that the government’s response against Monkeypox must include combating anti-gay stigmas that could be associated with the disease.

  1. Why does this article laud Fauci as a pioneer of AIDS treatment? Fauci was wrong on HIV/AIDS and chased a vaccine for years and years meanwhile drug companies discovered the anti-retrovirals that are used to make people undetectable and able to live a normal life today. We still do not have a vaccine for HIV and if Fauci had his way we wouldn’t have the anti-retrovirals either.

    Gays, all that you have to do is put the dick down for 2 weeks. Stop putting rotten dick in your mouth and quit orgies. Being stigmatized is the lease of your concern right now…

  3. That’s all very nice, but we need to address why the vaccines are not being rolled out in a more aggressive fashion. I’m told in Canada getting the vaccine is relatively easy.
