More stuff I just don’t get.

HPV is a sexually transmitted disease that both women and men get.
It can cause cervical cancer.
There is a vaccine for it.
The vaccine is only marketed to women.
Doesn’t that seem like only doing half the work? It’s an optional vaccine and apparently it’s expensive so not EVERY woman gets it, so wouldn’t marketing it to EVERYBODY reduce cervical cancer more than just marketing it to women? The link above says the main vaccine is not ‘safe’ for men, girls under 9 and pregnant women. If it’s safe for women how can it be unsafe for men? I’d really like to know that.
Is it that it’s actually not that safe for women?
Is it that it’s perfectly safe for men but why should they bother since they don’t get cervical cancer?
On this day:
In 2007 – I made a lot of glaring typos that I don’t feel like fixing right now.
In 2006 – holy flip!
In 2005 – me and brent
