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, CSA mention, caps, gross, bad public health policy joke
Some reporter: Hey, [minister of health here], what’s our public health policy concerning airborne diseases?
Moh: Well, I’m glad you asked. We have everyone infected cough directly on everyone else’s face.
That’s my understanding of the Dutch government’s policy on all this; am I about right?
gross, bad public health policy joke, eugenics
@horsebatteryhealth you forgot the part where everyone is also told not getting infected is their personal responsibility (since "public health" is clearly not the responsibility of the minister for [checks notes] public health).
and that disabled people "can't live normal lives anyway", so endangering them is fine (even though the constitution, at least 3 international treaties, and the Human Rights Council say otherwise).
