SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A rare and potentially serious sexually transmitted disease has turned up in a few patients in San Francisco, prompting health officials to issue a public warning.
The disease is called lymphogranuloma venereum, or LGV. It's a form of chlamydia, a common sexually transmitted infection, but LGV can cause scarring of the genitals and colon and cause lymph glands near the groin to swell or burst.
While the illness is rarely seen outside of poor, tropical nations, it has recently turned up in the Netherlands. Doctors in Rotterdam reported 92 cases among gay men there during a 17-month period ending in September. A few cases have also been reported in Belgium, France, Sweden and Atlanta.
Four patients, all gay men, have been treated for LGV in San Francisco so far, and none had traveled to the Netherlands. For that reason, health officials believe there may be other cases in the city that have not yet been detected.

So will all Fruit-of-the-Loom and BVD men's briefs now carry a warning label visible from the rear?
Now we have LGV to add to AIDS, and it's showing up in San Francisco - surprise, surprise.
You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; such a thing is an abomination
Everyone who does any of these abominations shall be cut off from among his people.
Heed my charge, then, not to defile yourselves by observing the abominable customs that have been observed before you. I, the LORD, am your God."

That's an odd place for a "sexually" transmitted disease to show up ...
Oh, yes. This is in Than Franthithco ... nevah mind.
SF must be a huge petri dish for growing strange organisms.
oh great! Now we're going to have exploding gays?!
In the words of AC/DC
She gave me her mind, then she gave me her body
But she gave it to anybody
But I made her cry, and I made her scream and I curdled her cream
But how was I to know that she had been there before
She told me she was a virgin
She was number nine, ninty-nine on the clinical list
And I fell in love, with the dirty little bitch
She's got the jack
she's got the jack
she's got the jack
She got the jack, jack, jack, jack, she's got the jack.
I'm waiting for the sexually transmitted disease that is only found in the wild in a gerbil host.
Don't worry, liberals will take it upon themselves to convince everyone that exploding groins are quite normal and healthy.
Fruit of the loom will be marketing a new version of the popular jockey shorts. It will have a Y front and a Y back.
Score another community health scourge for the alternative lifestyle crowd. Don't worry. Gay marriage will fix everything.
LGV... the San... Fran...cisco treat...
Now there's a lovely mental picture.
Not only that, but desireable!
According to the Social Democrats, Sodomizing each other will bring us to a higher level of understanding. How are we suppose to understand exploding groins!! How do we explain to our children that alternative lifestyles are acceptable, but your groin may explode!!
These people are SICK and the Democrats are IDIOTS for aligning themselves with these SICKO'S!! I bet they regret that move, as it is sure to spell their demise, Oh I'm sorry they will just rename themselves!, PROGRESSIVES --- with exploding Groins,, How far can you PROGRESS!?
"The Exploding Groins" would be a great name for a band ...
