While California’s Democratic politicians try to legislate three-parent families (SB 1476), prevent same-sex attracted youth from receiving desired psychological counseling (SB 1172), undercut marriage (SB 1140), and permit non-doctors to perform abortions (SB 623), new figures show that the state’s sexual revolution continues to devour its own children.
The California Department of Public Health recently released its latest statistics for sexually transmitted diseases in the state.
The release of the statewide statistics comes at the same time that the Department of Public Health of the city and county of San Francisco released its statistics on sexually transmitted diseases for the first half of 2012. In San Francisco, the numbers for gonorrhea, male rectal gonorrhea, chlamydia, male rectal chlamydia, and syphilis are all up over the year 2011.
The numbers from the state of California are more detailed. They show that the number of early and latent syphilis cases have increased statewide every year since 2007. They also show that in the city and county of San Francisco cases of early and latent syphilis have increased for the sixth consecutive year. San Francisco is the only county in the state which shows six consecutive years of increase.
The California Department of Public Health also gives a breakdown on cases of syphilis by sex. For San Francisco in 2011 there were 278 cases of syphilis among men as opposed to 11 among women. Either those 11 women sleep around a lot, or the overwhelming numbers among men are caused by same-sex activity. In fact, in an August 23 article covering the new figures, the usually well-informed Matthew Bjako of the homosexualist Bay Area Reporter writes: “Men who have sex with men account for 80 percent of the infectious, or primary, syphilis cases statewide.” This number should be put in perspective. The “October 2008 Census Snapshot” of California’s Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Population produced by the Williams Institute at UCLA indicates that 3.2% of the population of California falls in those categories. But since 42% of that 3.2% are lesbian, that means that 1.85% of the population of California is responsible for 80% of its new syphilis cases.
Younger people may not realize that syphilis was once considered nearly eradicated in developed countries. Wikipedia reports: “After decreasing dramatically since the widespread availability of penicillin in the 1940s, rates of infection have increased since the turn of the millennium in many countries, often in combination with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). This has been attributed partly to unsafe sexual practices among men who have sex with men, increased promiscuity, prostitution, and decreasing use of barrier protection.” A Web MD article from November 2012 is more succinct: “Syphilis is down among women but skyrocketing among men who have sex with men.”
