monkeypox, homophobia, CSA mention, caps
Dutch news (paraphrased): "an elementary school child was found to have monkeypox (which is spreading amongst gay men); it's a mystery how they got infected, as sexual assault has been ruled out".
MONKEYPOX IS NOT (PRIMARILY) A SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED (OR "GAY") DISEASE FFS
WHO: "transmission occurs through close proximity or direct physical contact […] respiratory droplets (and possibly short-range aerosols), or contact with contaminated materials"
monkeypox, homophobia, doom predictions
@meganeko it's the AIDS panic all over again. and once the general public realises everyone can get it, they're gonna blame queers, which will go super well with the current transphobia everywhere.
