"VANCOUVER - Syphilis rates in Vancouver are at their highest in 32 years, prompting public health officials to issue a warning to the group at greatest risk — men who have sex with men.

Medical health officer Dr. Reka Gustafson of Vancouver Coastal Health said Thursday that 561 new syphilis cases were reported in British Columbia last year, and 86 PER CENT OF THEM WERE AMONG GAY AND BISEXUAL MEN.

She said syphilis rates in 2012 across the Lower Mainland were already at their highest in 30 years, and the numbers climbed further in 2013."

It's the 14% that weren't gay. They were infected by bisexuals that were infected by gays.

I'd guess a lot of this is substance abuse related, combined with residual shame from homophobia, combined with an attitude that syphilis is a simply treated inconvenience.

The important things here are how good a marker are the syphilis rates for unprotected anal intercourse, and to what extent will all this sort of thing lead to further, drug resistant strains of syphilis.

Lots of sex can be engaged in healthfully, just like lots of eating or sleeping can be engaged in healthfully. But these basic drives can also become unhealthy.

Meanwhile, str8 women (and males, also,) face a near epidemic of HPV. It's not just one team that has the STD problem, although lesbians face far less overall STD risk as a cohort than any other.

MSM, aka, "Men Who have Sex with Men", is a CDC identifying category of men who claim they are straight but "enjoy having sex with other men." Talk about BS denial or just plain sick. If a guy has sex with other men he IS either bi or homo, and the farthest thing from straight a person can get short of engaging in bestiality too.

The evil enters into the fact that the men in this category are also having sex with women and hiding the truth from them, not giving the women the choice to avoid a gaywad. The results are that the women catch their diseases and so do the ultimate innocents, the babies that are conceived with these twisted fks.

Bisexuals don't care how they get off or with what, they are like the bull in the pasture that will hump the closest thing taller than a bunny, just because it smelled pheromones on the wind.
