CDC Fights Gay Panic Post Staph Report

15infe-11901-1.jpg
The CDC recently reported that gay men are helping spread a super staph infection. While certainly bad news, things got even worse when the right wing used the findings to further fuel gay panic.

Seeing the error of their ways, the CDC released a statement clarifying that the matter does not rest entirely on homo shoulders:

The strains of MRSA described in the recent Annals of Internal Medicine have mostly been identified in certain groups of men who have sex with men (MSM), but have also been found in some persons who are not MSM. It is important to note that the groups of MSM in which these isolates have been described are not representative of all MSM, so conclusions can not be drawn about the prevalence of these strains among all MSM.

We’re sure social conservatives like Matt Barber and Peter LaBarbera will dismiss this as part of some sinister gay agenda…
