I think we should be a wee bit careful to not buy into the frame that there's actually something up. I'm curious how this'll be develop later this year. Pox scenarios have been widely discussed though in their whitepapers, but it seems that they need actual visual proof to pull this one off.
In a few months, 0.5% of the SF gay male population has come down with homopox.
Unlike the respitory disease, which can't be stopped, this disease has a very simple route to extinction - gay man are ruthlessly bullied into dropping their sex addictions. In the same way that we were ruthlessly bullied into masking and taking the obviously dangerous Vax, pushed by card-carrying Malthusian land barons and climate villains.
As with GRIDs, this will start spilling out into the promiscuous gen. pop. via bisexualists. This is time to adjust your chastity belt or batten down the hatches of monogamy.
From the GloHo media environment it seems this is going to spread. They are split between covering up the means of the outbreaks and trying to save the lives of gays. They have fallen foul of their own political correctness.
While they are dithering, gays are going to continue sodding, and there are plenty who will want to get the disease, want to spread it, kill and be killed.
Based on that and the transmission speed, I'd say this ramps up. They couldn't stop GRIDs in the 80s, so it seem unlikely they will be able to stop homopox in a society that is dominated by hysterical leftists.
But so long as you are on the right path, you have nothing to worry about. It seems we are living in a time when those who are of the world will be punished more and more.
