Dr. Anthony Fauci Promotes Sex With Strangers But Not Shaking Hands

In a recent Vanity Fair article, Dr. Anthony Fauci was asked by interviewer Peter Hamby:

Q. “On the opposite side of that spectrum, people are cooped up, they’re a little stir crazy. If you’re swiping on a dating app like Tinder, or Bumble, or Grindr, and you match with someone that you think is hot, and you’re just kind of like, “Maybe it’s fine if this one stranger comes over.” What do you say to that person?”

Fauci: “You know, that’s tough. Because it’s what’s called relative risk. If you really feel that you don’t want to have any part of this virus, will you maintain six feet away, wear a mask, do all the things that we talk about in the guidelines? If you’re willing to take a risk—and you know, everybody has their own tolerance for risks—you could figure out if you want to meet somebody. And it depends on the level of the interaction that you want to have. If you’re looking for a friend, sit in a room and put a mask on, and you know, chat a bit. If you want to go a little bit more intimate, well, then that’s your choice regarding a risk. The one thing you don’t want to do is make sure the person is feeling well. Even though there’s a lot of asymptomatic infections, that’s one of the things that’s really troublesome. That if everybody transmitted would only transmit when they’re sick, that would be much easier. But what we’re seeing, which becomes really problematic, is that there’s a considerable amount of transmission from an asymptomatic person. And we’ve got well-documented now, you know, that situation on the nuclear carrier, the Roosevelt, USS Roosevelt, where hundreds of sailors have gotten infected from people that were not sick. That’s tough.”

This is an incredible perspective to take given the bugaboo we’re in as it relates to social distancing and how people ought to relate to each other. In a previous interview with the Wall street journal Podcast, Dr. Fauci took a much harder stance on casual contact:

“I don’t think we should ever shake hands ever again, to be honest with you. Not only would it be good to prevent coronavirus disease, it probably would decrease instances of influenza dramatically in this country.”

Dr. Faucci bemoans asymptomatic carriers passing on the virus, and yet why wouldn’t casual hookups be the epitome of that? He promotes it by saying it’s fine so long as people are willing to accept the relative risks, but those risks are being understood here as singular to the people involved, and not plural to those that they might come in contact with.

Put another way, let’s rewrite the questions and answer:

Q. “On the opposite side of that spectrum, people are cooped up, they’re a little stir crazy. If you really want to attend church service with other families, to worship, listen to preaching, have communion, etc (all actions which don’t involve skin on skin contact and the exchanging of bodily fluids) What do you say to that person?”

Fauci: “You know, that’s tough. Because it’s what’s called relative risk. If you really feel that you don’t want to have any part of this virus, will you maintain six feet away, wear a mask, do all the things that we talk about in the guidelines? If you’re willing to take a risk—and you know, everybody has their own tolerance for risks—you could figure out if you want to see your church family. And it depends on the level of the interaction that you want to have. If you’re looking base interaction, sit in your car, keep the windows rolled up, have a drive-in church service. If you want to go a little bit more intimate, well, then that’s your choice regarding a risk. The one thing you don’t want to do is make sure the rest of the church is feeling well. Even though there’s a lot of asymptomatic infections, that’s one of the things that’s really troublesome. That if everybody transmitted would only transmit when they’re sick, that would be much easier. But what we’re seeing, which becomes really problematic, is that there’s a considerable amount of transmission from an asymptomatic person. And we’ve got well-documented now, you know, that situation on the nuclear carrier, the Roosevelt, USS Roosevelt, where hundreds of sailors have gotten infected from people that were not sick. That’s tough.”

Why is it acceptable to assume the risk and have casual sex with strangers and come into REALLY close contact with potential COVID-19 carriers, which then makes you much more likely to spread it, but not ok for families to wear facemasks and gloves and sit farther apart and have a service if that is the collective church’s tolerance for risks? One seems far worse than the other in terms of risk mitigation, and it’s not even close.
