Monkeypox and the Inversion of Morality

Regarding monkeypox, the moonbats at GQ have given us permission to “acknowledge that the virus is currently primarily affecting queer men”:

According to the latest CDC update, of the nearly 3600 cases in the US as of July 25, all but 5 were attributed to sex between men.

Some leftists demand we pretend that the disease is not spread almost exclusively by male homosexuals (although children in their custody have also been affected). However,

Framing monkeypox risk as something that “can affect anyone” might be true in theory, but will ultimately serve to divert valuable resources away from the groups that need them most right now.

But the authors do not call upon fellow members of the gay community to take responsibility. Quite the contrary.

They sneer at the concept of abstinence:

It didn’t work in the AIDS crisis, so why would it work now? … It’s also, we would argue, not moral to tell queer people, who have been told time and again by the world not to fulfill what is a basic human need, to simply do so again.

The sector of society represented by GQ has reached the absolute inversion of sanity and morality. Profligate deviant sex with multiple partners is “a basic human need.” Asking people to stop spreading disease through immoral behavior is “not moral.”

Not only does abstinence place the impetus (and blame) on gay and bisexual men, it also allows those truly responsible to skirt blame. We are not to blame for the outbreak—we are victims of it…

If the people spreading the disease through unwillingness to control their behavior are not responsible, who is? Big Government, for not shoveling enough of our money at monkeypox and those who spread it.

[S]uggesting queer people abstain from sex or simply have less of it without offering material support via vaccines or financial support during isolation just feels hollow.

Evidently, taxpayers should be forced to pay homosexuals not to spread diseases they have contracted through their behavior — speaking of which:

The HIV/AIDS crisis was an instance of the government failing to intervene because the people being primarily impacted initially were queer men… Likewise, many of us in the LGBTQ+ community feel this outbreak would be getting a very different response if it was impacting heterosexual people more than men who have sex with men.

They actually expect us to pretend that AIDS has received less funding because it is primarily spread by gays. This confirms that no matter how extravagant the favoritism shown to preferred identity groups, they will always claim to be victims so as to bully us into granting them still more favoritism.

Meanwhile, back in reality,

[The National Institutes of Health] spends about $2,583 each year per person with HIV/AIDS, $418 each year per person with cancer, and only $38 each year per person with diabetes.

In addition to AIDS, monkeypox also calls to mind Romans 1:24-27:

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.

25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones.

27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

Christianity was around for thousands of years before the virus known as woke liberalism appeared. It will be around long after the virus has finally gone away.
