“Thinking themselves wise they became fools”
– Saul of Tarsus
The sexual ” rights” agenda , which some secular intellectuals are seeking to impose on the countries of the world using the considerable clout of the United Nations system, is being promulgated using the Yogyakarta Principles.
The Yogyakarta Principles were developed at a meeting in Yogyakarta , Indonesia in November 2006. Participants signed off on a document which stated that sexual expression of all types were human rights and that nation / states must both legislate and teach this claim
Consistent with secular intellectual wizardry on social issues the outcomes of the sexual “rights” agenda are predictably bad.
Instead of following standard epidemiological practice to advise persons at risk for a disease to “cease and desist” behaviour known to be significantly associated with the disease secularists claim “rights” to fisting, felching, scat etc and buggery itself.
Naturally, HIV infections among MSM continue to rise worldwide.
In 2012 HIV cases were the highest they had been in Australia for 20 years, most cases being in MSM.
New HIV Cases in Australia—Most in MSM—Reach 20-Year High in 2012

Australia recorded a 10% jump in new HIV infections in 2012. The 1253 new cases are the largest number of new HIV infections in 20 years, and most of them are in men who have sex with men (MSM).
“Some of the rise in reported HIV diagnoses may be due to an increase in testing,” according to the Kirby Institute’s David Wilson, “but better testing simply cannot explain the magnitude of these rising rates.”
Rates of three other sexually transmitted infections, chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis, also rose in 2012. With 82,707 cases diagnosed in 2012, chlamydia remains the most frequently reported notifiable infection. Gonorrhea rates rose substantially to 13,649 cases in 2012, with most cases in MSM. Syphilis incidence climbed in MSM to reach 1534 new diagnoses in 2012, close to the highest recorded level in Australia.
The findings appear in Sexually Transmissible and Blood-Borne Infections in Australia: the 2013 Surveillance Reports from the Kirby Institute at the University of New South Wales.
Australia now has from 28,600 to 34,300 people living with HIV infection. An estimated 10% to 25% of people with HIV remain undiagnosed. “We need to focus significant efforts on getting people diagnosed and initiating antiretroviral therapy in order to improve their health and reduce the risk of transmission in the community, ” says David Wilson.
The report also contains good news. The proportion of young women and heterosexual men with genital warts “continued to plummet” after Australia introduce a national school-based human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination program for girls. The proportion of young women diagnosed with genital warts at sexual health clinics plunged from 12.1% in 2007, when the vaccination program began, to 1% in 2012.
HPV also causes cervical cancer, anal cancer, and other cancers, which are much more frequent in HIV-positive people than HIV-negative people. But it is too early to tell whether the vaccination programs is cutting rates of these cancers.
Cases of hepatitis B and C infection, which often affect people with HIV, fell in the past year. Australia reported 6702 cases of HBV and 10,114 cases of HCV in 2012.
