HPV Vaccine and Bill Maher

I was mean to Bligbi earlier, but she has a posting that makes for very worthwhile reading.

She refers to Bill Maher’s editorial (also a must-read) in Salon regarding the Christian Right’s crusade against the HPV vaccine because it gives girls a “license to engage in premarital sex.”

Bligbi says:

Honestly, what do you think they’d do if a disease was discovered that only threatened married women, but was preventable with a simple shot? They’d demand all us married women get it, perhaps even pass a law requiring the shot. We can’t have our respectable wives and mothers dropping dead on us, eh?

It’s the whores, the sluts and the Lolitas that these Christian groups really want to punish. Yes, they do have it out for us married-not-enslaved women too, but they really despise “loose women”.

I don’t understand the logic, either. But then again, these fundamental Christians are the same people who think the solution to risky sexual behavior is having the children sign abstinence pledges.

As Bill Maher writes:

We all know, there’s only one 100 percent proven method to make a woman abstinent — marry her.
