At this point by comparison Covid had gone NUTS, so while this growth is uncomfortable, at least it's not pandemic material thank god.

I read about the polio too!

Is it because everyone/the media is on high alert when it comes to diseases or why are these things happening now?

I guess that's just it, but my fear of diseases has skyrocketed.
And among all this, had to meet someone with tuberculosis the other day, now the slightest cough makes me wonder if I've got it.

Polio isn't too much of a concern really, unless your parents were prone to making terrible decisions based on nonsense conspiracy theories, in which case YOU'RE IN DANGER.

In other STI news, I ALSO found out I've got a dose of the CLAP, but that's BY THE BY.

IS THIS STILL A THING?

Watch this she age as badly as my takes on Russia/Ukraine.

It's still going on, but thankfully isn't getting much media hype. Think they're busy scaring everyone about climate change at the moment. (Which to be fair, is a much more existential threat)

At least three people I know in person caught it as well as a bunch of guys I know from Twitter. So I would say, yes, it’s still very much a thing. I booked a jab for next month.

It has finally got some attention in Sweden. The gay clinics demanding vaccine because they can’t handle the influx of new cases. Health agency has finally agreed to this but there are only 1500 doses. :bruised:

Meanwhile most gays I talked to are very much like @Lucille mostly oblivious to this still existing.

In other news, yesterday I had sex with a handsome Serb who had just come to Hamburg (where I was too) and thanks to my ridiculous obsession with the Wikipedia Monkeypox charts I thought chances of him having it were thin. I hope I was right.

Oh and I’m feeling slightly feverish today.

I love how the LINE on this is that it's not spreading through the gay community and it's just that we're more likely to notice a crusty rash on our crotch because we're diligent.

That may be true, but we also do like to share bodily fluids, used towels, and passaround bottoms at mass participation events more than any other demographic.

Why is it good that it’s not getting attention? It is spreading
It's getting a balanced amount of attention, is what I mean. Enough that those most likely to be affected apparently have vaccines offered etc, but not "monkeypox spreading all over the gay community" plastered across every front page like in the beginning. I was already starting to detect homophobia picking back up.

Never mind then, it's back in the headlines as a global health emergency

Enjoy life before they start lockdowns and stuff (okay hopefully it won't come to that but it seems to keep being worse than predicted etc)

Well I've made it to 18 June (page 3). I've never heard about any of this, but do now have an interest in furries if they're getting fucked by 50 guys without even leaving the Travelodge.

And it probably goes without saying as I've said he's a porn star, but there is porn on that twitter account, which may be relevant depending on where you're watching it.
