    The increase in STDs is in many ways a result of cuts in funding to public health clinics, Gail Bolan, director of CDC’s Division of STD Prevention, told NBC.

    "Most recently, there have been significant erosions of state and local STD control programs," Bolan said. "Most people don't recognize that the direct clinical care of individuals with sexually transmitted diseases is supported by state and local funds and federal funds."


    Now any more guesses as to which US political Party reduced that funding, at Federal, State and local levels? In favor of preaching sexual abstinence instead, in compliance with their religious and ideological principles versus medical science and common sense? These tragic results show the folly of a fanatical political approach to a medical issue.

    No guessing required . Bare Backing with PreP is the new norm. Stds are up 10-20 percent in SF.

    You don't understand the free market: If you increase the risk, then the behavior will go down.

    Next up: Cut funding for cancer research. Then it's survival of the fittest. Just like God intended, see?

    Probably because young guys are usually hornier more often than older guys, and tend to make more spur-of-the-moment decisions without thinking of the consequences.

    Just a hunch. icon_wink.gif

    It's likely partly the prep taking inspired lazy attitude as well as a general malaise that crept in. I don't believe that it's restricted to the young Coz I have seen guys in their 40's do so mighty stupid shit and maybe there is more reticence to ditch condoms in older age groups. BB as a bottom add rough sex with a big cock = %100 chance of catching everything transmisable. Porn these days has taught young gay men It's normal sex. Why isn't this issue spoken about?

    I would guess the main reason is the normalization of behavior like BB sex. On one hand improved HIV medications is providing better life for positive men, on the other hand it's taking away the fear of contracting HIV, because they have been told that they aren't going to die from HIV.

    Older people fucking with younger people keeps stds going indefinitely. Once an STD makes its way into younger circles, it spreads quickly because, well, they're all a bunch of horny mother fuckersh

    Is it because they all think PreP is a get-out-of-AIDS-free card?

    I will assume you aren't joking...


    Does the same logic work for the military? Cut the defense budget, then it is survival of the fittest? Cut the police? Survival of the fittest? Or just disband the entire government, then it's survival of the fittest?


    You do understand, survival of the fittest doesn't mean strongest right? It just means the most adaptable to the environment....we live in an environment that has cancer research, so why would we change that environment? You do also understand, cancer research, can lead to other discoveries right? Like they don't just toss out any new shit they learn cause it doesn't relate to cancer. If they accidently discover the cure to, stupidity, they aren't gonna just toss it out.
