    Monkey Pox And Vasan’s Vacuous Vapourings 

    A New York City nonentity named Ashwin Vasan has gotten his pinko knickers in a twist because he thinks the disease bothering so many sexual maladjusts should not be called “monkeypox.”

    • Dr. Ashwin Vasan
    • He’s the NYC Health Commissioner and here’s a quote from his demented demand.

    “Continuing to use the term ‘monkeypox’ to describe the current outbreak may reignite these traumatic feelings of racism and stigma — particularly for Black people and other people of color, as well as members of the LGBTQIA+ communities, and it is possible that they may avoid engaging in vital health care services because of it,” he continues…


    To be perfectly frank, this is just incomprehensible.

    Monkeys, here in Indonesia at least, have not been staging protests, and are probably more concerned at the downturn in tourism and the consequent absence of food-treats….


    …though with the return of tourists, post-pandemic, things may be brighter in Bali soon.

    In fact, for this blathering Vasan to perceive some unspecifiable link between the word ‘monkey’ and..

    A queers


    B coloured people…

    …seems to me downright nasty, insulting to the monkeys to link them with sexual deviants and insulting to coloured people to link them with monkeys.

    Re-Naming Bugs? Why Not The Chinese Murder Hornet? 

    An American scientist who took issue with the official designation of the giant Asian hornet, commonly known as the “Asian murder hornet,” has successfully changed the name to the “Northern giant hornet” to avoid anti-Asian stigma….


    Used to be that scientists were seekers after truth.


    Some are more into drying cry-baby tears before the tears are even shed.

    It’s not even that people are offended but that somebody might be.

    .The murder hornets, which originate from China…


    So change the name to Chinese Murder Hornets?

    After all, the current regime in Beijing has been murdering innocent people gleefully for the past 7 decades.


    Mass-Murder Monster Mao

    • Fat chance, any more than the new virus variant got called the Xi Variant, as it should have been….


    ..or indeed any more than we get to describe the pandemic plague which cost so many lives and blighted so many more, as what it was…

    ….the Chinese Virus.

    Following concerns that the name of the colloquial label of the insect may be offensive to Asians, the Entomological Society of America has called for its name to be changed to the less offensive “Northern giant hornet.”

    Bloody pathetic!
