Monkeypox is a Serious Disease. It’s Not Homophobic to Say explores how the lethal mongoose-borne hemorrhagic virus places some groups of people at an even greater risk of acquiring the more dangerous smallpox variant than others.

The monkeypox virus is known to cause severe respiratory illness in humans. The virus is typically spread through contact with the bodily fluids of an infected animal, such as a monkey or ape. However, the virus can also be spread through human-to-human contact, such as through close physical contact or sexual contact.

There have been a number of recent monkeypox outbreaks in  West, and  virus is now present in several countries. The most recent outbreak occurred in the UK, where there have been cases of monkeypox among both the general population and among gay men2,137 cases in a week.

There is no specific treatment for monkeypox, and the virus can be deadly in some cases. However, the majority of people who contract the virus will recover without any long-term health effects.

It is important to note that there is no evidence that monkeypox is specifically targeting gay men. However, given the close physical contact that can occur during sexual activity, it is not surprising that the virus would impact this population more severely. There is no reason to believe that monkeypox is a homophobia-related illness, and people should not be afraid to seek treatment if they believe they may have been exposed to the virus.
