The Centers for Disease Control recently put out a recommendation that those at a high risk for HIV infections be given PrEP — pre-exposure prophylaxis — medications that significantly reduce the risk of infection. Deranged bigot Linda Harvey makes an absolutely bizarre and dangerous argument against this sound advice:
Teens are unsurprisingly acting like teens and not using condoms.
“In a 2011 survey in the United States, of the 34% of high school students reporting sexual intercourse in the previous 3 months, 40% did not use a condom.”…
The CDC concludes that since HIV continues to rise among 13 to 24- year- old males who have sex with males (MSM), what else can they do? Throwing up their collective hands, the agency points to this age group’s aversion to condoms (big surprise) and will still refuse to push abstinence.
Again, our country’s most well-educated professionals will subvert common sense, the results of research, and any inclination to do what’s objectively right, to political correctness. Abstinence is off the table.
Especially at risk from a protocol like PrEP are young minority homosexual males, since they now contract HIV at a disproportionately higher rate. Some of these kids, let’s face it, are prostituting their bodies for money and/or drugs, and little is being done to stop it except hand them condoms. Many on the left support their conduct and call it “sex work,” kind of like having a summer job.
Don’t you dare think of the obvious term for this: racial cleansing.
Only in the mind of a wingnut could prescribing a drug that could prevent young minority men from getting HIV be seen as an attempt to destroy them.
