In this post, we’ll start with the latest data on monkeyp0x from the Center for Disease Control. Then, we will look at how the secular left responds when their freedom to engage in Darwinian monkey sex is threatened. Then, we’ll contrast that with how the secular left responded when churches wanted to continue to meet during the the C0VID pandemic.
Here’s the Wall Street Journal:
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released data finding the monkeyp0x outbreak is concentrated among men who have had sex with several men, and issued more detailed recommendations on how to avoid exposure to the disease.
Among 291 men surveyed, 40% reported that they had two to four partners and 14% reported five to nine partners in the three weeks before developing monkeyp0x , according to the report. About 19% reported 10 or more partners during that period, the CDC said Friday.
And among 86 men who reported information, 28% said they had had group sex, which is defined as sex with more than two people, at a festival, group sex event or sex party, based on the report. The research was conducted from May 17 through July 22.
The article notes that there are now 7,000 known cases in the U.S.
The initial response of the secular left authorities to monkeyp0x was to avoid restricting the behaviors of gay men, lest these restrictions be perceived as disapproval of what they are doing. The secular left said “anyone can get monkeyp0x, so there is no sense making our beloved LGHDTV crowd feel singled out for their truth. Love is love. And we need to love everyone”.
The Federalist notes:
After so much emphasis on the importance of personal sacrifice for the greater good, you would think that a new, highly contagious disease would be treated with more seriousness by the left. Instead, when monkeyp0x crossed over onto America’s shores, the left decided the rules no longer applied to them. Similar to how 1,000 health professionals demanded Black Lives Matter protests were worth the risk during the height of C0vid, LGBT folks decided anonymous sex and fetish parades were more important than public safety.
California state Sen. Scott Wiener, best known for lowering the criminal penalty for knowingly exposing others to HIV and advocating to keep adults as old as 24 from being placed on the sex offender list if they sexually exploit a minor as young as 14, declared, “Lots of sex shaming of gay men around monkeyp0x… Lecturing people not to have sex isn’t a public health strategy…”
The important thing is not to do good for gay men by warning them about the consequences of their choices. The important thing is to let them have “fun”.
The mental health of the secular left cannot be harmed by restricting the gay orgies:
Jack Turban, assistant professor of child psychiatry at UC San Francisco, insisted, “Monkeyp0x has serious physical symptoms, but we also need to focus on the mental health impact for the #queer community. Being gay is a healthy & normal aspect of human diversity. Sex is a healthy normal part of life. Have pride in your community while we combat the virus.”
There was no such concern for the mental health of people who wanted to attend church services during C0VID, thought:
During the C0vid pandemic, everyone was expected to shut down their lives, at great sacrifice to their families and careers, lock down, stay indoors, and wear masks. The police raided Orthodox Jewish homes to stop services and arrested pastors for holding church services, funerals weren’t allowed, and the media, especially LGBT media, mocked people for dying from C0vid. People were accused of being murderers and dangers to society, and Wiener himself berated members of Congress for failing to wear masks.
I think the view of the secular left is that church services are OK to ban, but gay orgies are morally superior, and cannot be banned. You can’t even ask people to avoid attending gay orgies, because gay orgies are so amazingly awesome and important.
I have an atheist friend in Seattle who is a big supporter of same-sex marriage. I wonder if this is what he means by “same-sex marriage”:
As the Daily Caller reported, a popular OnlyFans user, with 98,000 followers on his adult Twitter, put into perspective how far this all can go. In the middle of a growing monkeyp0x outbreak in the gay male community, he decided to attend two orgies in one weekend — sexually engaging with at least 20 and upwards of 40 men — hook up with three additional strangers later that evening, and enjoy a four-way the following day before discovering he had been infected with the disease. If that sounds like an extreme example, keep in mind that the festival promoted by the San Francisco AIDS Foundation was described as “Up Your Alley (aka Dore Alley), where you’ll get your fill of hot hairy daddies, hungry pigs, BDSM babes and kinks of all kinds. Douchie’s got some hot tips for a fun and filthy weekend — free of anxiety.”
Wow, talk about atheist objective morality. In Christianity, you limit your freedom and sacrifice your interests to help others. In atheist morality, it’s… different. In Christian morality, you get married for 50 years and have 4 kids, and 12 grand kids. In atheist morality, it’s… different.
