A few years back, the editorial board at the Chicago Tribune invited everyone to jump into the pool at the so-called “gay games” (we kid you not.) Yesterday, the very same Trib reported this:
HIV rates rise among young gay, bisexual men
Officials at Northwestern worried about uptick to conduct research project
The “jump in the pool” folks at the Trib might want to spend a little more time considering the Centers for Disease Control studies that warn about the health risks associated with homosexual and bisexual behavior. Despite decades worth of evidence, that very same behavior is praised and promoted by the liberal media, the public schools, many legislatures, Hollywood, much of corporate America, and of course the Democratic Party.
The Tribune’s Kim Geiger reports this:
Chicago will play host to a major research project that will look at all potential drivers of transmission within a single study. The National Institutes of Health recently awarded Northwestern’s Feinberg School of Medicine an $8.7 million grant for the five-year study, which will include the Chicago Department of Public Health and community organizations like Center on Halsted as partners.
Brian Mustanski, who directs the LGBT health and development program at Northwestern, said this:
Chicago is a great place to do this kind of research. It’s such a diverse city. It has so many different characteristics.
Indeed, Chicago’s worldwide reputation continues to expand beyond just gangsters and political corruption.
Here are a few more quotes from the Trib article.
Nikhil Prachand, the director of HIV and sexually transmitted infection epidemiology at the city’s health department:
It makes it challenging, on one hand being encouraged by our successes in reducing HIV… but at the same time making sure that we’re all aware that there’s still this important subgroup that is beginning to carry a greater burden of the epidemic.”
John Peller, interim president and CEO at the AIDS Foundation of Chicago:
It’s really hard to maintain the sense of emergency around HIV that many of us remember from the ’80s and ’90s. We need new ways to communicate with gay men and particularly young gay men about their … sexual health and wellness.
No doubt part of what makes maintaining the “sense of emergency about HIV” can be linked directly to dangerous sexual practices being praised and promoted by the liberal media, the public schools, many legislatures, Hollywood, much of corporate America, and of course the Democratic Party.
