"That Vaccine"

Friday, October 19, 2007

My step-daughter had "that vaccine", her mother asked DH last spring if he would have a problem with it and DH asked me what I thought. I made the mistake of saying I had always planned that little boo boo la la would have it when she was old enough...he said, THEN WHY DIDN'T YOU SUGGEST IT FOR SAIR?

Uhhhhhh...because I forget about things like that? I AM blonde!

But at least I am not ignorant like the conservative "Christian" right.

It blows my mind that someone would begin to equate a vaccine that prevents women from DYING from cervical cancer with immorality. It is not like you tell a young girl, "Look Betty, we are giving you this shot so you can have all the sex you want and not get cancer. Got it? Go out now and find yourself a nice 12 year old boy to do the horizontal mambo with and come back later for some milk and cookies." give me a break.

You tell the kid that this shot will keep them safe from a form of virius that causes cervical cancer! If they ask what cervical cancer is you can explain, or have the doctor do it when you go for the shot. Talk about your values if they have questions, but really it is not about sex!

Do you agree with me? Or am I crazy?

Totally agree with you. As a person who has had to deal with this virus for most of her adult life I know what happens and the fear associated with it. Having had this 'shot' would not have made me any more inclined to have sex.

Dear Friend

It's nice for me to have found this blog of yours. I read and saw what I could, my time is short.
I sure hope and wish that you take courage enough to pay me a visit in my PALAVROSSAVRVS REX!, and plus get some surprise with my work there. My blog is so cool! Don't think for a minute that my invitation is spam and I'm a spammer.
I often come across with so good but lonely blogs in my friendly random search,
my search for a public that may like or love what I POETRY write and also CHRONICLE,
among other types of Artistic Texts: we all search HAPINESS and JOY, don't we?
Well I'm realy happy to have found YOU.

I've learned and seen a lot after much more than 10.000 blogs I've visted in the late three months.
And I will, like Titanic's Kate, keep on and on and on and, like the song, feel that I 'Still haven't found what I'm looking for'.

When you come and visit me feel free to comment as you wish and, TOGETHER, let's make blogguing universal,
realy universal, as well all the essential causes that bring us all together by visiting, helping and loving one another this GENTLE way.

Let me tell you that some I visit feel invaded and ofended that I present myself this way in their blogs
and rudely insult me back or post a mockery post on me.
Some think I'm playing the smart guy who wants to profit in some way from (and with) others curiosity and benevolence.
Some simply ignore me.
Some aknowledge that It's most important we all take notion that there's milions of us bloguing arownd the world
and thus vital any kind of awareness of eachother such as I believe
this my self-introduction card and insert apeal brings in.

May you be one of those open and friendly spirits.

Don't feel obliged to come and visit me.
An invitation is not an intimation.

I think that in the end it's to UNITE MANKIND that we became bloggers!
When in my blogg don't see language as an obstacle but as a challenge
(though you can use the translater BabelFish at the bottom of my page!)
and think for a minute if I and the rest of the world are not expecting something like a broad cumplicity that you're a part of.
Remenber that pictures talk also and I have de most delicious ones.

I Hope this message of mine had helped you in some way.

See you soon, MY FRIEND.
May the LORD bless our HEARTS and fill them with PEACE AND MOTIVATION
to endure our Lives the best way we can.
