    I loath government and its bureaucrats. In my state of Utah, the treacherous governor a decade and a half ago turned over all the personal info on ever man, woman and child to a national database, and was appointed as seeming reward into the Bush cabinet after that treachery.

    Government loots us, then pretends to give services back.

    What do you do locally where you are to have STI treatment and testing, where you can be anonymous and not have the damned government snooping and keeping track of your personal records, which they can use later for who knows what nefarious use?

    I wish I had a good "gay" doctor in my area to deal with.

    Government health care means no

    Why not? The government has our Federal tax records, and those can't be made public or shared, either. Ask Trump about that, his own tax records unavailable for public scrutiny.

    There are also laws prohibiting the release of medical records. As a university registrar I had to deal with the parents of students, who demanded to know why they couldn't see their child's medical records, when over 18. Nor could the student's academic records be released, without the written permission of the student.

    I don't know how many times I had to face hostile parents, especially the fathers, screaming at me: "I'm the one paying the tuition! And you're telling me I can't see those records?"

    No, you can't. Discuss it with your son or daughter. If you can convince him/her to sign the release to you, then you can have it. My hands are tied by Federal law.

    And in fact, the same restrictions apply to all medical records. Has the law changed and I wasn't aware of it?

    Where I live STI clinics are free and no ID is required. I do need to tell my local clap clinic my date of birth as apparently they have 53 other clients called Michael Mouse.
