STDsby Carder

With most of these populations, having a sexually transmitted disease from having sex with another man is highly stigmatized. They’d rather not get tested for HIV, syphilis, or whatever.

They don’t want it to show up on their records.

~ Professor George W. Rutherford, claiming that homophobia in the South may contribute to the rise of sexually transmitted diseases, Bloomberg, January 8

Note: Ryan Bomberger of The Radiance Foundation responds:

And where is Planned Parenthood in this mix with its half a billion in annual Title X funding from the American taxpayer? Is the CDC suggesting that that “investment” is failing? Why aren’t the over 800 Planned Parenthood alleged “health centers” treating these men? Planned Parenthood is the number one source of reproductive health propaganda. There’s no stigma there. They aggressively promote unhealthy sexual behaviors among every demographic, and they boast of their increased testing and STD treatments.
