Evidently, you missed the part about it being casually transmittable. Do you have any idea how many people have immune-system problems?

'Who should get vaccinated? Gay men/MSM who travel frequently to New York City, or who are planning to visit in the near future, should talk to their provider about getting the vaccine.

Evidently you missed the part about this particular strain only affecting MSM, and that those are the people they are suggesting getting the vaccine. Why not do your own research, instead of sidestepping the issue by trying to find loopholes.
You obviously couldn't care less about the other MSM who are at risk.

AID's and H.I.V. are a disease that cross ALL segments of society gay and straight and have absolutely nothing to do with the Constitution or marriage equality! D-U-H

You don't know what I 'think' so you cannot make a conclusion based on your ignorance. You still didn't show any numbers about the prevalence of swingers, and I'll bet they have a higher chance of sexually transmitted diseases too.
This thread isn't about swingers though, is it? Promoting bad behavior by pointing to other bad behavior is the foundation of the gay community. Trivialization of the deviancy shows how thoroughly you have digressed.
You don't give ACTUAL numbers either......just percentages, which doesn't show me the methodology used to come up with the numbers you claim...at least I gave you articles that show positive aspects(I guess)of swinging!!!

Actually, this thread is about Congratulating Minnesota for becoming the 12th State to grant the right to marry for Same-Sex Couples......not about what you consider perverted or anything else!!!

You bet it is, while you would hope to shield the truth, you are doing the gay community a great disservice. I've not addressed HIV or AID's, Meningitis is the operative disease.
Because the truth makes you uncomfortable is no reason to sit on the sidelines watching the slow motion train wreck.

From your article:
About meningococcal meningitis
N. meningitidis can be found in the nose and throats of about 10% of healthy adults in North America and Western Europe. In these regions, outbreaks of meningococcal disease are relatively common among infants in the first year of life, and in young people aged 15 to 25 years. Usually these germs do not cause disease except in people who are susceptible to them.

Transmission and risk factors
In general, being in close personal contact with a person who has meningococcal disease helps the spread of infection. Transmission occurs when one inhales the tiny droplets that are released when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Outbreaks of meningococcal disease have been linked to the following locations:

Crowded conditions such as those found in university dormitories, military training centres and barracks, schools, bathhouses/saunas, bars and nightclubs.

The following factors have been associated with the spread of and susceptibility to N. meningitidis:
intimate contact – including wet kissing and sex
sharing food utensils, drinks, toothbrushes and so on
smoking cigarettes or inhaling second-hand smoke – this damages the delicate cells lining the nasal passages and throat.

The following populations are at increased risk for bacterial meningitis caused by N. meningitidis:
1)people who have or had a recent viral infection (such as the flu) that has affected the throat and nasal passages

2)people with weakened immune systems, including people who have inherited immune deficiencies,

3)people whose spleens are malfunctioning or who have had their spleens removed, people with sickle cell anemia and people who have received a transplanted organ or tissue. The Public Health Agency of Canada notes that HIV-positive people are at heightened risk for meningococcal infection.

4)MSM

5)travellers to regions where there are relatively high rates of meningococcal disease, such as sub-Saharan Africa, and pilgrims on the Hajj who have visited Mecca, Saudi Arabia

It appears that it AFFECTS more than just Gay men.....and your hatred towards Gays and Lesbians has been EXPOSED!!!

The truth is in the article, which by the way is from a news source in Toronto, Canada

I've not once mentioned 'perverted', but thanks for bringing it into the conversation.

This thread is about Minnesota being the 12th state to OK gay marriage, only the gay supporters are 'congratulating' each other for the misguided vote, many don't agree. It's obvious you would like to squash all resistance, or anyone with a differing opinion. That is not going to happen. Just how far would you go to shut me up is the question.

The truth is in the article, which by the way is from a news source in Toronto, Canada
'There have been 18 cases of invasive serogroup C Neisseria meningitidis disease identified among men who have sex with men in New York City as of Dec. 31, according to a report in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
In 2012, the incidence rate of invasive meningococcal disease among MSM aged 18 to 64 years was 12.6 per 100,000 persons. Among non-MSM, the rate was 0.16 per 100,000 persons. All patients were hospitalized and five died.
Among the 18 patients, nine were from Brooklyn, four were from Manhattan, two were from the Bronx, two were from Queens and one was homeless. Nine of the men were black and four were Hispanic. Ten were also infected with HIV and seven patients reported having multiple sex partners they met online.
The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene alerted the public about the outbreak in September. In October, they recommended that MSM with HIV, who had intimate contact with a man met online, through a smartphone application or at a bar or party since September, be given meningococcal vaccine. The recommendation was expanded in November to include men without HIV who have the same high-risk behaviors and who lived in Brooklyn, where there was a cluster of cases.
Twelve isolates underwent pulsed-field gel electrophoresis. Eleven of the isolates were closely related to a strain from a similar outbreak in 2006 in Brooklyn. Of the last seven isolates collected, six were indistinguishable.
“Public health departments should be alert for cases of invasive serogroup C Neisseria meningitidis disease in MSM and should ask patients with this disease about sexual history, travel history (including travel to New York City) and HIV status to help determine if this outbreak is spreading to other jurisdictions,” the CDC wrote.'
http://www.healio.com/infectious-disease/emer... -
So, smart guy, tell me why they ONLY advise MSM to get the vaccine? Are you really this dense?
You protect your deviance with thinly veiled distractions. Sad, sad commentary.

Wrong again, this was not a popular vote by the people, big difference, but I certainly don't expect you to fully grasp that fact either.

I still don't credit them the title "straight". Most of them are far too bent for such an appellation.

"hetero" is more accurate.

Your obsessive issues with anal sex, are well, your issues. But just so you know, people figured out how to do it a long, long time ago and has been practiced at least since we started drawing dirty pictures. It's practiced by most, but nowhere close to all gay men, it's not practiced among lesbians and it's practiced by a heck of a lot of heterosexual folk. It has absolutely NOTHING to do with the subject at hand. So why even bring your "thoughts" on anal sex up? Are you some kind of weirdo?
