The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Monday alerted gay and bisexual men that monkeypox appears to be spreading in the community globally, cautioning people to take precautions if they have been in close contact with someone who may have the virus and to be on the lookout for symptoms.
Dr. John Brooks, a CDC official, emphasized that anyone can contract monkeypox through close personal contact regardless of sexual orientation. However, Brooks said many of the people affected globally so far are men who identify as gay or bisexual. Though they may have greater chance of exposure to monkeypox right now, that doesn’t mean the risk is limited only to the gay and bisexual community, he said.
We want to help people make the best informed decisions to protect their health and the health of their community from monkeypox,” Brooks said.
Monkeypox is not a sexually transmitted disease, which are generally passed through semen or vaginal fluid, but it can be transmitted through sexual and intimate contact as well as through shared bedding. The virus spreads through contact with body fluids and sores, Brooks said.
It’s important for physicians and individuals to be aware of the symptoms associated with monkeypox, particularly anal or genital lesions that can be confused with herpes, syphilis or chickenpox, he said.
“Anyone with a rash or lesion around or involving their genitals, their anus or any other place that they have not seen it before, should be fully evaluated, both for that rash but particularly for sexually transmitted infection and other illnesses that can cause rash,” Brooks said.

Happy Pride Month, faggots!
Like Biden says, we should be very concerned with the monkey pox.
After all such a big percentage of the population is gay.
What is it up to now? 99% or so?
Do you think God is trying to say that deviant sexual behavior is not good?
We have spend decades trying to solve HIV and allow the normalization of deviant sex, and here comes monkeypox. Maybe there is a message here.
Andrei, you have another gay disease?
Are they allowed to ID homos as disease carriers?
Well, HE’S in trouble now....
but but but... I thought we were supposed to stop talking about it being spread by gay men...
“Don’t worry, Pierre. It’s just herpes, syphilis or chickenpox. Let’s get it on!”
I guess thy don't have to worry about the rashes they've had for a while now???
If the CDC really did their job, they would have a simple PSA message:
“If you are a pervert, stop *&^%ing around!”
Drag queen and monkey pox story hour.
And don’t kiss a frog.
Wonder if CoupFlu vaxxes abd/or PrEP figure into this...
