Good Cancer-Lovin’ Fun

A new vaccine that protects against cervical cancer has set up a clash between health advocates who want to use the shots aggressively to prevent thousands of malignancies and social conservatives who say immunizing teenagers could encourage sexual activity.

“Teenagers” is actually code for:

GIRLS. Women. Female. Just wanted to remind everybody that boys don’t get cervical cancer. In this case, gender-neutral “teenager” might throw you off.

And people say women are all “paranoid” and shit about all that religion mixin’ with women’s health services.

Why oh why could that be?
