One of the enduring myths about sexual promiscuity of both the heterosexual and homosexual variety is that it is a victimless crime. After all, we’re told, it’s consensual sex between adults and nobody gets hurt.
But it’s a myth and a dangerous one at that. People get hurt, sometimes permanently and sometimes fatally, by sex outside God’s plan of fidelity in man-woman marriage.
Things have gotten so bad in Ohio, by the transmission of STDs through homosexual and heterosexual promiscuity, which lawmakers are planning to allow doctors to do something that would otherwise land them in prison: prescribe medications for people they do not know, have never met, and have never examined (emphasis mine throughout):
“A bill in Ohio seeks to expand access to treatment for certain sexually transmitted diseases by allowing doctors to prescribe medication to their patients’ partners without first examining them.
“Licensed providers in Ohio must first examine patients before prescribing them antibiotics. But legislation recently passed by the House would create a limited exception for partners of patients who have been diagnosed with chlamydia, trichomoniasis or gonorrhea in an effort to reduce cases of the infections.
“Ohio’s rate of reported gonorrhea and chlamydia cases is higher than the national average, with most cases occurring among those ages 15 to 24.” ~ Associated Press, May 25, 2015
What this AP reporter doesn’t say and doesn’t want you to know is that many, if not most, of the patients he is writing about are homosexuals. While trichomoniasis is carried in the vagina, cases of gonorrhea and syphilis have been spiking largely due to their alarming increase in the homosexual community.
Under the proposed Ohio bill, a doctor will be able to prescribe antibiotics for all the sexual partners of his patient. Now, we know that anonymous and promiscuous sex is a characteristic feature of the homosexual lifestyle. Thus, a doctor must be prepared to write a virtually unlimited number of prescriptions for people completely unknown to him.
The obvious reason for this proposed legislation is that many sexual partners will not know they are about to be infected with a sexually transmitted disease which may compromise their health for the rest of their lives.
According to the CDC (not a part of the vast, right-wing conspiracy):
“Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) have been increasing among gay and bisexual men, with recent increases in syphilis being documented across the country. In 2012, men who have sex with men (MSM) accounted for 75% of primary and secondary syphilis cases in the United States.”
This 75% figure is staggering when we remember that homosexuals comprise less than 2% of the population.
The CDC warns of any number of STDs homosexuals are at risk of contracting from their sexual partners. Here is its frightening list:
“Having an STD (like gonorrhea) makes it easier to get HIV, so it’s important to get tested to protect your health and the health of your partner. CDC recommends sexually active gay and bisexual men test for:
- Hepatitis B;
- Hepatitis C among gay men born from 1945 to 1965 or with risk behaviors;
- Chlamydia and gonorrhea of the rectum if you’ve had receptive anal sex, or been a “bottom” in the past year;
- Chlamydia and gonorrhea of the penis (urethra) if you have had insertive anal or oral sex in the past year;
- Gonorrhea of the throat if you’ve performed oral sex (i.e., your mouth on your partner’s penis, vagina, or anus) in the past year…”
One of the major additional problems in the homosexual community is that homosexuals are much less likely than heterosexuals to report their infected status, whether it’s HIV or something else, to their sexual partners:
“In a 2006 study published in the journal, AIDS Behavior (AIDS Behav. 2006 September; 10(5): 495–507.) Duru, et al. studied the behaviors of a representative sample of HIV-positive homosexuals, heterosexual men, and women. The results are shocking. Sixty percent of homosexual men failed to report their serostatus to all partners, compared to thirty-four percent of heterosexual men, and twenty-seven percent of women.”
How long will it be before legislation is proposed to allow doctors to prescribe medication not just for a patient’s partners, but for the partners of those partners? Then what about the partners of the partners of those partners? If we are going to facilitate homosexual promiscuity, what logical basis is there to stop with just one circle of sexual partners? Once we start down this road, there is no place to stop.
Bottom line: These additional prescriptions are being written for victims of adult, consensual sex, victimized without their knowledge or awareness.
Whatever else homosexuality is, let’s be done with the pretense that it is a victimless crime. As lawmakers in Ohio are demonstrating, it most assuredly is not.
