Making VD great again

AP reported venereal disease is at its highest in 74 years.

The story said, "Last year the rate of syphilis cases reached its highest since 1991 and the total number of cases hit its highest since 1948. HIV cases are also on the rise, up 16% last year." 

This is unbelievably bad considering the availability of condoms and the like. 

But a hookup culture is slowly learning why society was so "uptight" about sex.

Oh, we no longer call it VD. We call it sexually transmitted disease to take off the stigma. The WHO calls it sexually transmitted infections to further reduce the stigma.

Instead of reducing the stigma, how about reducing the disease?

Dr. Leandro Mena of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention trotted out the usual government remedies.

AP said, "Officials are working on new approaches to the problem, such as home-test kits for some STDs that will make it easier for people to learn they are infected and to take steps to prevent spreading it to others, Mena said.

"Another expert said a core part of any effort must work to increase the use of condoms."

How about tracing back sex partners?

How about teaching abstinence in school?

How about promoting fidelity in marriage and other relationships?

How about doing what worked?

Syphilis peaked in 1948. 

50 years later it hit a low of just 7,000 new cases in 1998 thanks to decades of hard work by two generations of dedicated public health officials.

AP reported, "The CDC was so encouraged by the progress it launched a plan to eliminate syphilis in the U.S.

"But by 2002 cases began rising again, largely among gay and bisexual men, and they kept going. In late 2013, CDC ended its elimination campaign in the face of limited funding and escalating cases, which that year surpassed 17,000."

Limited funding?

Since when did the federal government limit funding? In the 21st century, the federal government has outspent tax revenues by a trillion dollars a year on average. Ending syphilis was not a priority and so we are back to where we started from.

  2. All of your how abouts to cut VD -- Totally agree. But that would mean taking personal responsibility and there's not much of that "disease" going around today. The youngers will have to learn the hard way.

    1. There is no personal responsibility taught or has been taught to the last couple of generations. It is a MeMeMe culture. I am the center of the world and can do no wrong. Brothers and I were raised in the same house. I pay my bills, brothers leached off the parents. They are now in their mid-50s and just learning they got to pay bills first.... yeah... and that carries over into most of their life choices.

    1. Gallagher's tune was pretty good. Unfortunately syphilis presents with few symptoms, almost no pain, and they go away in time. Later it kills you. Those are the symptoms for gonorrhea. Still, funny.

    2. I worked for a Vietnam nurse a long time ago. She told me how she got her companies to quit 'dipping their wick' in anything that moved.

      The guys would come in having things not right and seeping. She would hand them 2 big syringes,filled with both meds they needed. They would be cold and she would tell them to hold on to them, the medicine needed warmed a little. She would leave them to wait for 15 mins (30 if they were repeats) to look at the biggest needles she could put on the syringes. She would then stick them in the butt.

      Amazingly enough she had very few repeat customers and the behavior quit for her companies.

      I worked for her and never crossed her. Tiny petite thing that ruled her area

    2. SN, yes a choice, and like many bad choices it becomes an addiction. Then like so many addictions, the addict needs more bizzaro which is why they prey on children. There might be a reason GOD commanded his people to not tolerate it.

  5. The only sexually transmitted disease that can be prevented by vaccination is hepatitis B. Syphilis and gonorrhea are treated with penicillin.

    2. Not true Randy the damage is irreversible, but the disease can be cured.

  6. Randy says: We can only wonder (because government health officials sure aren’t going to tell you) how much of the increase in genital rot is due to the immune system being decimated by the COVID genetic manipulation shots.

    1. Considering how syphilis acts when other infections occur, that is probably a valid point.

    2. Yes, probably a valid point.

  7. Is there a single area of our society that the Biden/Obama crew hasn't vandalized? Obama's dream of fundamentally transforming America has become a nightmare for most actual Americans. There will be blowback. In the meantime, the next few weeks are going to be very dangerous.

  9. "Another expert said a core part of any effort must work to increase the use of condoms."

    C Everett Koop, but all the Lefties called him a judgment old reactionary 1982

    How about tracing back sex partners?

    Deep State Dwarf killed that to keep the homosexual vote 1992

    How about teaching abstinence in school?

    Teacher unions killed that because the Lefties wanted a lot of illegitimate kids 1972

    How about promoting fidelity in marriage and other relationships?

    Churches infiltrated by the likes of the Berrigans killed that because it was "judgmental" 1967

    Notice a pattern?

  14. Syphilis is (and likely always was) a disease largely of male homosexuals. The diseases break out into heterosexuals via bisexuals. Most VDs (STDs, STIs) involved lumps or "sores" which actually enhance transmission of other VDs. Though the actual vector is a body fluid. In the AIDS epidemic the intersecting (isn't that one of the new Woke words?) demographics of queers and IV drug users (see the Stonewall where NY cops tried to suppress drugs among NY's queers and turned it into an idiotic queer monument to depravity) spread. HIV/AIDS through both deviant populations. VDs are mostly spread in heterosexual sex from male to female. IN queer sex rectal and oral deposits plus VD sore and/or warts spread the diseases. With the demise of a million queers in the AIDS epidemic a lot of this crap was tamped down. In most cultures homosexuality (defined as at least one episode of sexual activity with a same sex partner in the past year) has historically been one half to one percent of those populations and was steady everywhere. About on par with other serious mental disorders (like schizophrenia - one percent). Now over three percent of US adults say they're queer and they're ferociously recruiting children and youth. America has a real crazy and disease problem. And queers can spread anything: see Monkeypox spread by close contact and not sex almost exclusively among male homosexuals. Even children and pets exposed to queers are getting monkeypox. Why are children and pets exposed to intimate contact with queers?

  15. My name is Dick, and I was totally irresponsible back in the 70"s-80"s. Back in the day, I was slinging DNA with any girl that was interested. There were plenty. I was young and had good times. Condoms? Nah, condoms were to prevent pregnancy, there was always an alternative landing area. VD/Clap was the only thing we had to worry about, but all you needed was a shot at the free clinic to clear things up. I knew a few friends that were "pissing razor blades", but no one that ever had syphilis. A few more got herpes. Other than that, it was all good!!! Must be that gay shit going around...

    I wonder how much of the increase in these disease is directly the result of reducing the stigma.

    Someone should do a study...

  20. repeal all "gay pride" laws, recriminalize buggery, and prohibit employment of perverts in jobs that include contact with minors. in short order the STDs will be dropping like a stone in the non-incarcerated population.
