“You can rest easy, folks. Apparently protecting our daughters from the HPV virus — and, by extension, the threat of cervical cancer — won’t turn her into a raging slutmonster. A new three-year Kaiser Permanete/Emory University study published this week in the journal Pediatrics reveals that girls who’ve been vaccinated with Gardasil at ages 11 and 12 showed no higher rates of pregnancies, sexually transmitted infections and contraceptive use than girls who hadn’t. The results of the study made major headlines Monday, with CBS News reassuring us that “HPV Shots Don’t Make Girls Promiscuous.” MedPage declared, “HPV Vaccine No ‘License for Sex’ in Girls.” So I guess it’s cool to vaccinate them after all!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go find Doctor Who, because I need a Time Lord to explain to me why this crap is still even an issue in 2012.”
