STZ: Woman Infects Male Sex Partner With Zika...

The first case of female-to-male sexual transmission of the Zika virus has been documented in New York City, raising the prospect that the disease could spread more widely beyond the countries where it is already endemic and largely transmitted by mosquitoes.

When I first commented on this a couple months ago, the liberals were adamant that one had to travel to South America to be infected. I said that was silly and it could be brought here and transmitted here. Wait and see.....................and now....we see. ;)

Listen, you really need to stop trying to tell people what liberals are saying. You get it wrong 100% of the time.

No I don't. I wouldn't say it if it weren't true and I didn't see libs posting stupid stuff all the time. I understand it's a mental defect on their part, and I accept it.

You imagine libs posting stupid stuff all the time. Because you take any random statement and inflate it to ridiculous extremes, and then attack the belief you just made up for them. "Hurf durf liberals think all cops are racists!!!"

Or, in this case, you somehow perceive liberals arguing that Zika is magically blocked from transmitting in the United States.
