CDC Warns of Growing Super Gonorrhea Threat

It’s almost as if having sex with the drugged out skanks you meet at a club or the dirty, homeless hippies you meet in an Occupy encampment is a bad idea. From U.S. News and World Report:

Gonorrhea, one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases in the United States, is increasingly showing resistance to one of the last known effective antibiotic treatments, leading researchers from the Centers for Disease Control to “sound the alarm” about potentially untreatable forms of the disease.

“During the past three years, the wily gonococcus has become less susceptible to our last line of antimicrobial defense, threatening our ability to cure gonorrhea,” Gail Bolan, director of the CDC’s sexually transmitted disease prevention program, wrote in The New England Journal of Medicine last week.

According to the CDC, gonorrhea has a long history of developing immunity to antibiotics, but doctors have always had a stronger medicine up their sleeves to treat patients. Not anymore—about 1.7 percent of gonorrhea is now resistant to cephalosporins, the last line of defense against gonorrhea. That might not seem like much, but it’s a 17-fold increase since 2006, when about one tenth of one percent of gonorrhea was believed to have resistance to cephalosporins.

According to Bolan, the strains are showing up most often in the western states, where 3.6 percent of gonorrhea has shown resistance to cephalosporins, and in men who have sex with men, with nearly 5 percent of gonorrhea showing resistance.

Ah, the “wily gonococcus” that strikes without warning . . . mostly in liberal strongholds and at bareback parties. Here’s a thought – the bacteria isn’t “wily” we as a society are just disgusting, wallowing in unclean practices and unsafe sex. I assure you that gay men who are in long term committed relationships do not have incidents of this “wily” gonorrhea, despite what critics of the late Herman Slater would have you believe. Why? Because if you don’t want a STD the only sure way to get it is to not have sex with anyone except on exclusive partner who doesn’t have it.

Now, before some of you “feminists” start about the United States not having good sex ed I know at least three people who were told they couldn’t get an STD if they just had oral sex. And this by supposed sex ed teachers. We all know that’s a load of crap, right? OK I know you actually don’t know that, which is why we’re looking at new strains of super gonorrhea.

Want some real information on how to avid super gonorrhea:

If this is what your potential partner thinks is family time:

She’s got super gonorrhea, don’t have sex with her.

Ladies if you meet a guy at a club, protest, coffee shop, women’s studies course, PETA meeting, Ron Paul meet-up, concert or on the subway he has super gonorrhea. Do not have sex with him.

For my gay friends out there it’s best to assume everyone at your favorite cruising spot has super gonorrhea. Don’t have sex with them.

For ladies and gentleman – if someone offers to get you high they have super gonorrhea. Do not have sex with them.

In fact, maybe everyone should stop having sex with people they don’t particularly know well  – at least until we figure out this super gonorrhea thing. Maybe people can start (gasp!) dating without sexual activity and getting to know each other before trading potentially fatal bodily fluids. I know how “fascist” that sounds but give it some thought.
