You guys really need to STOP STIGMATIZING the gay community! What you’re doing is spreading dangerous misinformation about a marginalized group of people. If you did your research you’d know that ANYONE can get monkeypox simply from touching an individual who’s infected. STOP USING TOXIC RHETORIC!

Mpox doesn't transmit as easily as covid, but covid is a "10" on a scale of 10. MPox spreads fairly easily — just look at how quickly it has spread around the U.S. since it arrived! Anyone that has it should self-isolate / quarantine to stop the spread. WHY aren't the "health experts" saying this?? There aren't enough MPox vaccines, so self-isolation is the only way to help stop it.

Fear mongering… Bc this should be PSA for sodomites

People you all should still be staying home if you want to be safe.

n the past, scholars gave the rules that should be given in Islam. They don't do that nowadays. People do not want these from scholars. People don't research…

Pete buttigieg should be the monkey pox coordinator. I know he would do a great job!

Ronald Beck August 2, 2022 - 11:55 PM

Global health emergency? Really?
If you can get the pox from doing a particular non hetero thing.
Don't do that thing …
Global health emergency resolved !

Ive got it. Only symptom i have is a strong desire to swing from the fire escape while eating bananas.

Promiscuous sex, the Bible tells you there are Consequences for this. Nothing good comes from sleeping with multiple partners, or sex for the good times… You get diseases, fatherless children, murdered in the womb children. The clues are right in front of you, but you just can't see. Jesus is the only way.

"Well, we've got another national election to steal, and C hin a V iru s panic is waning. We need something else to scare people into submitting to Marxist Authoritarianism.
MonkeyPox might do. If not, we'll find something else. It'll work again, because people are stupid."
