San Francisco AIDS Foundation: Even If You Think You Have Monkeypox, Come to the Fetish Festival and Have Sex With Random Pickups Anyway.
Just Put a Band-Aid Over Your Sores.

No really.

Really.

We'll get to that.

But let's build a foundation first.

Washington Free Beacon: When It Comes to Monkeypox, Which Infects 98% Gay and Bisexual Men, "Journalists" Have Adopted Their Very Own "Don't Say Gay" Law

Mainstream journalists have adopted what critics are calling a "don't say gay" approach to covering the monkeypox outbreak in the United States. The media's coverage of monkeypox, which officials in New York and California have declared a threat to public health amid rising case numbers, has studiously avoided using the word "gay" when discussing the individuals who are most at risk of contracting the viral disease.

Journalists insist on using the phrase "men who have sex with men"--decades-old terminology often used during the AIDS epidemic--to explain the fact that gay and bisexual men comprise about 98 percent of more than 18,000 monkeypox cases worldwide. Some left-wing activists have argued that even pointing this out is "stigmatizing," while more sane individuals have suggested this is "particularly important information for gay men to know."

...

It is unclear whether the media's refusal to say "gay" is related to Florida's Parental Rights in Education Law, known to mainstream journalists and other critics as the "don't say gay" law.

In fairness, the supposed "gay rights" group GLAAD -- which, like all the rest of them, is really just a grifter group interested in collecting money to pay their own salaries at the expense of the group they supposedly champion -- is instructing the media to lie to gay men about the dangers that monkeypox poses to them:

GLAADwillbesad.jpg

I guess Kennedy got the memo.

Hey Kennedy, maybe next time do a little more show-prep than "none at all," huh?

A couple of weeks ago, a gay reporter argued in the Washington Post that his friends in the media were in fact puting gay men's health and even lives in danger by denying them critical health information in a craven effort to appear woke.

Gay men deserve the unvarnished truth about monkeypox

By Benjamin Ryan

Benjamin Ryan has been covering infectious disease and LGBTQ health for two decades and contributes to the New York Times, NBC News, the Guardian and Thomson Reuters Foundation.

"Anyone can get monkeypox."

Countless public health experts have uttered statements such as this in the past two months. Members of the media and politicians have parroted the message ad nauseam without stopping to dissect what it implies or obscures.

This broad-strokes maxim -- that everyone on Earth is susceptible to this troubling viral infection -- might be factual on its surface. But it is so egregiously misleading it amounts to misinformation.



...

By reducing monkeypox risk to a simplistic binary equation, public health leaders are prioritizing fighting stigma over their duty to directly inform the public about the true contours and drivers of this global outbreak. In particular, they are failing to properly convey the seriousness of this burgeoning crisis to gay and bisexual men.

Here is what we can discern from data collected about monkeypox so far: This viral outbreak isn't just mostly occurring among men who have sex with men. The confirmed cases, at least to date, have consistently almost entirely occurred among this demographic, which accounts for 96 percent or more of diagnoses where data are available.

...

An uncomfortable truth, one documented in peer-reviewed papers, is that sexual behaviors and networks specific to gay and bisexual men have long made them more likely to acquire various sexually transmitted infections compared with heterosexual people. This includes not only HIV, but also syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, hepatitis B and sexually transmitted hepatitis C.

He notes that it is the sexual behavior of gay men that allows such sexual or close-contact diseases to spread -- in other populations, he notes, such viruses tend to "dead-end," that is, they infect a person but the infection chain then stops.

Not so in the parts of the gay community that embrace hyperpromiscuity.

He makes an odd, but somewhat persuasive point: Telling people that "anyone can get monkeypox" is actually more stigmatizing for gays, just as telling the wider population that "anyone can get AIDS" was more stigmatizing for gays.

Because that told the greater population that these diseases -- which they knew, despite official government propaganda, were chiefly diseases affecting gay men -- could easily be spread to the non-gay population.

In other words, the official government propaganda, while trying to shield gays from "stigma," actually told the public... anyone can get these diseases which the gays are spreading.

Such experts have also asserted that the risk of monkeypox to the broader population not having multiple sex partners remains low -- even "very low." This is hopeful news, and the wider public deserves to be reassured accordingly. Assuaging fears of contagion will help fight unhelpful hysteria and prevent gay and bisexual men from being subjected to even greater stigma should they be painted as culprits of the spread of virus to others.

Such enmity devastated the gay community during the height of the AIDS crisis, when the CDC waged a long-running, misleading public service campaign with variations of the slogan "anyone can get HIV/AIDS." Those claims belied the truth about the relative risk of HIV, which in Western nations has always predominantly affected gay and bisexual men.

It seems that "woke" public health officials are -- deliberately? -- not collecting demographic data on those infected with monkeypox, again, one presumes, to "protect gays."

But this will result in more gays getting the disease, of course:

...

Sadly, state and local public health departments in the United States are failing to report to the CDC vital demographic details about people diagnosed with monkeypox. This stymies the nation's capacity to respond to the outbreak with impactful interventions, such as targeted vaccines, and to promote health equity.

...

Gay men deserve to hear the unvarnished truth about monkeypox so we can take action accordingly. We're adults. Please be honest with us.

The New York Times notes that some public health officials want to do the obvious, commonsense, medically prudent thing and tell gay men to avoid promiscuous sex during this outbreak -- but they are being shouted down as "homophobes" by their more woke, more pro-monkeypox colleagues.

Wasn't that the story during the covid pandemic? If you resisted efforts to stop the pandemic, you were pro-pandemic?

So yeah, these people are pro-monkeypox.

Except the people most vulnerable here -- who will die if this breaks out into the general population -- are... children.

Debate Over Monkeypox Messaging Divides N.Y.C. Health Department

City epidemiologists say some public health messages have been misleading about the risks and have narrowed the city's chances for containing the disease.

Yes, it is "misleading" to continue telling the gay community that they are under no particular threat from monkeypox when it is they who 98% likely to be infected with it.

But gotta protect against that "stigma."

The spread of monkeypox has ignited a debate within the New York City Health Department over whether the agency should encourage gay men to reduce their number of sexual partners during this summer's outbreak.

Inside the department, officials are battling over public messaging as the number of monkeypox cases has nearly tripled in the last week, nearly all of them among men who have sex with men. A few epidemiologists say the city should be encouraging gay men to temporarily change their sexual behavior while the disease spreads, while other officials argue that approach would stigmatize gay men and would backfire.

Asking gay men to stop the one behavior that is spreading a pandemic virus?

Oh no -- not that.

Anything but that.

During the covid lockdowns, schools, churches, movie theaters, parks, beaches, and gyms were closed, and people were fined, fired, and arrested for attempting to go to these places.

But asking gays to limit their number of partners?

That's too oppressive.

Not avoid sex altogether, mind you -- just settle down with one f*ckbuddy during the pandemic and avoid sex with multiple partners.

No, no, no. Gay men cannot be asked to do that, just as blacks could not be asked not to riot during the height of covid transmission. No member of a protected leftist group can ever be asked to stop doing anything they want to do in the interests of public health.

But if normies want to get together with their families for Christmas?

F*CK YOU, GRANDMA KILLERS!

The internal divisions peaked when the health department issued an advisory last week suggesting that having sex while infected with monkeypox could be made safer if people avoided kissing and covered their sores. Several officials at the agency were outraged, saying the agency was giving misleading and even dangerous health advice, according to several epidemiologists within the department and a review of internal emails.

The advice on safer sex was not medically sound, said Dr. Don Weiss, the director of surveillance for the department's Bureau of Communicable Disease, in an interview. He believes the department should advise those at risk of monkeypox to temporarily reduce their number of partners, saying, "We're not telling people what they have to do to be safe."

How about we make up a loophole that still allows gay men to have multi-partner sex, even though that loophole does not, in fact, protect anyone from the virus at all and isn't medically based?

The important thing is that we never "stigmatize" the preferences of any group that is part of the leftist coalition.

The public health be damned to hell.

It's just a matter of Pride!

The strategy favored by Dr. Weiss, who has long played a frontline role in the department's response to disease outbreaks, has received little traction within the department.

In fact, the agency in a statement Monday argued against such an approach. "For decades, the L.G.B.T.Q.+ community has had their sex lives dissected, prescribed, and proscribed in myriad ways, mostly by heterosexual and cis people," the statement said.

And how did that strategy -- of lying to gay men, and telling them not to do the one thing which would reduce their chances of getting monkeypox down to almost zero -- work out for New York City?

It worked out great!

epicentercricis.jpg

I wonder how that happened.

Officials in New York City declared a public health emergency due to the spread of the monkeypox virus Saturday, calling the city "the epicenter" of the outbreak.

The announcement Saturday by Mayor Eric Adams and health Commissioner Ashwin Vasan said as many as 150,000 city residents could be at risk of infection. The declaration will allow officials to issue emergency orders under the city health code and amend code provisions to implement measures to help slow the spread.

In the last two days, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul declared a state disaster emergency declaration and the state health department called monkeypox an "imminent threat to public health."

It's an "imminent threat to public health," but not so imminent to justify "stigmatizing" a politically powerful group by asking them to give up the one sexual activity that's actually spreading the disease.

By the way, Fauci said that if he could have a re-do, he'd impose even more draconian covid restrictions from the start:

When asked what he would do differently if he could go back in time to the beginning of the pandemic, White House coronavirus advisor Anthony Fauci said that he would recommend "much, much more stringent restrictions" from the get-go.

"If I knew in 2020 what I know now, we would do a lot differently," said Fauci in an interview on Monday. "The insidious nature of spread in the community would have been much more of an alarm, and there would have been much, much more stringent restrictions in the sense of very, very heavy encouragement of people to wear masks, physical distancing, what have you."

He's got absolutely nothing to say about gay men limiting their sex partners to stop a pandemic caused entirely by gay men's large number of sex partners.

And Rachel Wallensky's CDC absolutely refuses to update the CDC website with new information about who is getting monkeypox -- and how and why they're getting it:

cdcrefusingtoinform.jpg

We're a long way from "15 days to stop the spread," huh? Now we're keeping the cause of the pandemic a secret to avoid Hurt Feelings.

Finally: San Francisco is going ahead with its "Up Your Alley" gay fetish festival.

With no advisory to avoid sex with random strangers.

Party on, m'dudes!

Don't worry, though: They'll be giving the sort of unsound "medical advice" that was proposed in New York. It's okay to have sex with multiple random strangers even when infected with sores, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation says, as long as you put Band-Aids over your sores.

No, really.

They're putting a Band-Aid over a sexually-communicated pandemic virus.


Despite the monkeypox pandemic wreaking havoc on the gay community, the San Francisco Aids Foundation (SFAF) cartoon mascot, a douche bottle named "Douchie" (that is not a joke) is urging gay men to attend the "Up Your Alley" street festival. The festival is full of "hot hairy daddies, hungry pigs, BDSM babes and kinks of all kinds," says Douchie, who shares some ideas to remain safe, adding "you may choose to use one or two of these suggestions -- or none at all." The ideas to help remain pox-free include:


Play dress up: There's never been a better time to dress from top to bottom in latex or leather. Keeping your skin covered is a sure-fire way to prevent exposures to monkeypox. ...

It's OK to be picky with your sex partners. ...

Cover up your own bumps: See a bump on your skin and worried that it might be monkeypox? If you're not sure, and you still want to go out tonight, cover it up with a bandaid or clothing before you go out.

Sure, you're sticking your **** up someone's *** but as long as you're in a leatherdaddy outfit, that's a "sure-fire" way to guard against monkeypox.

What can being "picky" about your "partners" possibly mean in the context of picking up complete strangers in a gay fetish festival?

How... picky can someone be, here?

And even if you do have open sores that may be monkeypox -- don't let that stop your good time!

Don't self-isolate! Don't avoid sex -- that would be a sin against Nature!

No, just sick a band-aid on your open sores and hope for the best!

They're literally proposing... a Band-Aid solution to a crisis.


Because the Endless Party must never stop!

The world must shut down for two years to stop covid, but no way can gay men be asked to cuff up with a single f***buddy for six months.


Just curious: When this spreads further among gay men, due to the leftwing media, leftwing politicians, and leftwing gay lobbying groups actively enabling it to spread--


How much of a blame will the left assign to Christians and conservative Republicans for causing to to spread? By not loving and accepting them enough?

100%, right?

The same as with AIDS, right?

That's what I thought.

Just checking.

Welp, things may or may not be hotting up. The PRC is doing things of the saber-rattling variety that will make it much harder to back down, and if Pelosi backs down, the US can forget ever restraining the PRC again. They will, in effect, rule East Asia.

But if normies want to get together with their families for Christmas?

Welp, things may or may not be hotting up. The PRC is doing things of the saber-rattling variety that will make it much harder to back down, and if Pelosi backs down, the US can forget ever restraining the PRC again. They will, in effect, rule East Asia.

It works EXACTLY like Ace (?) said. Trying not to stigmatize gays by saying everyone could get it just made everyone more afraid of gays and more afraid of getting it.

Yeah, that's more or less true of all the pox viruses.

Trouble is, no one born in the U.S. since 1972 has been vaccinated against smallpox (exceptions: those who served in the military, and travelers to countries where smallpox still existed after '72).

144 Correct. What's changed is that the PRC is telling Pelosi there will be military action if she goes to Taiwan. It will be difficult for them to back down from that.

They will muster a bunch of forces and get some nice video of the PLA putting on a show of force for the purposes of domestic propaganda. I seriously doubt Red China is going to go to war with Taiwan or precipitate a conflict with the US over this. The timing is just awful for a war of choice right now since the CCP's Party Congress is coming up in a couple of months and Xi is very likely to be granted a third term and crowned de facto emperor.

Next Spring, though, is another story.

It is telling how little the media and health officials think of deviants. They realize nothing will get in the way of their perverted sexual demands. It is just like Sodom, where the men groped for the door to try and rape the inhabitants even after being literally blinded by God. If God blinded me mid-sin, I think I'd at least consider stopping what I was doing for a bit.

Genesis 19:11 And they struck with blindness the men who were at the entrance of the house, both small and great, so that they wore themselves out groping for the door.

208 Just as I said a few days ago, this is a bad flashback to being in San Francisco in the 80s. Normal public health measures (contact tracing, closing bath houses) were thrown out the window cuz it would have "infringed on gay rights" and "stigmatized" them. Meanwhile AIDS ran rampant in their community.

At this point, I don't have many Fs to give. Gay men act like they're invincible because of anti-HIV meds that suppress that illness (but never CURES it). And they are outraged if you so much as suggest that their lifestyle is less than healthy. Which, even a cursory exam of the host of STDs they are at risk for will tell any sane person it is.

210 "but fauci did say during covid that if you were having a random hook up on Tinder or Grindr (the gay sex app) you were free to evaluate your "relative risk" and decide whether or not to spread covid "

The media and health organizations' refusal to speak out against BLM riots and pervert behavior proved early on that Covid wasn't as risky as they made it out to be. They knew the shutdown logic was a big lie.

The big remaster happened in 2007 with that big briefcase release. They've since given The Final Cut a 4K pass, including HDR, for the UHD release. I doubt any other cut will get that sort of treatment (expensive), so the Blu-rays are the best the rest of the cuts are going to look.

A precursor to the more famous Folsom Street Fair, Up Your Alley is a summer festival targeted to fetish enthusiasts and fans of BDSM with more than 50 adult vendors and close to 15,000 participants every year.

I disagree on that; the original is on my list of top 5 movies all time, maybe even top 3. I had so looked forward to the sequel, and then they blew it, because the new crew didn't even understand what made the first film so great. It has a lot to do with Critical Drinkers great piece about how modern movies are crap because they do not understand the importance of Great Villains in a narrative, nor do they have any idea how to write them anymore.

The hero of the original Blade Runner is not Deckard; it's Roy Batty. At the end, when we realize that Batty is really a runaway slave, and Deckards unit are just slavecatchers, the morality of the entire society (and the film) is turned on its head. And Batty turns out to be, as the Tyrell Corporation proclaimed, "more human than human" in every way.

the sequel understood none of this.

A workprint is the very first assembled version of a movie in post-production. This is the oft-rumored version of any movie that's 4 hours long before it got cut down to 90 minutes. It's everything they filmed in things that roughly resemble scenes.

It's a curio, at best. I still haven't watched the Blade Runner one.

364 Wasn't photographing and documenting these "Street Festivals" how "Zombie" made his/her fame?

I have not seen anything anywhere from Zombie lately? I hope she/he is doing well.

366 LA Confidential

James Cromwell - watching them beat the shoulder blades off a dude - while lecturing about doing this "in the city of angels".

He's a first class prick. Really good in everything he does. Captures that hypocrisy just perfect.

When I hit the Billion dollar lottery, and blow it all on my perfect Western ... James Cromwell is there.

368 "Except for The African Queen, for some reason I just detest that film and I don't have an adequate explanation for it."

I hate it because they forced us to watch it in film class. Hate Heart of Darkness because they forced us to write a stupid paper about it.

371 I have not seen anything anywhere from Zombie lately? I hope she/he is doing well.

I think that there were active Leftist attempts to doxx Zombie, so she backed off documenting things.

Interesting to see how the Taliban responds to the US waxing someone in their country.

I wish everybody wasn't running to the next thread. I could talk this all day. My judgement of films isn't "critical" - it's just what do I choose to watch more than once. If I like to see it more than once, its good in my book. Good enough to buy in physical copy.

History of the World and Blazing Saddles I have on DVD. I loved them both. My kids, as teens, loved them both. My wife - a prude - even laughed. Because they were good. And they made fun of the stuff they were making fun of. Mel Brooks was a damn genius.

374 Zawahiri most likely died of old age.

376 Sauce for the goose, I laughed like a loon at the scene in LoB when dude wants to be called Loretta and have babies. The crazy has been around a long time.

377 I actually think that Groundhog Day is a perfect, or near perfect movie. I would not change a thing in it.
Posted by: G'rump928(c) at August 01, 2022 05:21 PM (PY/t0)

I would. Andi McDowell. I find her tedious, repulsive even.

Otherwise I love that movie.

378 A definition of stigma is "A visible indicator of disease."

So, gay men are, shall we say, self-stigmatising.

380 I remember being told that those who didn’t get vaxxed had it coming for not trusting the experts. Thus the rubes would die and we would all be better for it. I am taking the same stance on the Schlong COVID.

381 152 >>>btw, honest question: is there a blu-ray/4k version of blade runner that has not been massively fucked with? I WANT the deadpan narration.

good q, i don't know, I believe the answer is "no."

Yes. Get the special blu-ray or hd-dvd box set. They have all versions of the film, even test cut with canned music.

382 I was with the Navy as a Corpsman in the Bay Area (Oakland)
at a Regional Medical Center during the "Great Coming Out" in the late 70's. Bath Houses, Drugged up Clubs in the Castro District. getting the "Oral" history of every weekend's flaming debauchery from my then room mate "Ricky".

Frankly, he was the first Ghey person I ever knew. I declined every offer to go with him and the Fag Hags..(who just so happened to be the most stunning Waves on base) into San Francisco to party.

He died the next year. In fact every Ghey Nurse I have ever worked with are all dead.

Monkey Pox is truly a "Ghey" thing....and this generation have been bringing back the Bath Houses
