I happened to read a post today that just totally blew my mind! It was based on this tweet by @PersonhoodFL.


In response, was a series of “hate-mongering” tweets by @FeministRescue.



Slut-shaming cancer patients? You can call it what you want. I call it honesty. It’s more like trying to prevent you from becoming a cancer patient. 

The National Cancer Institute states:

Persistent HPV infections are now recognized as the cause of essentially all cervical cancers. It was estimated that, in 2010, about 12,000 women in the United States would be diagnosed with this type of cancer and more than 4,000 would die from it.

The CDC states:

Genital human papillomavirus (also called HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI).

According to EMedTV:

About 30 types of HPV are spread through sexual contact, making it one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).



Yes, @PersonhoodFL is prolife. Prolife for the unborn, without question, but also for women like you, who are in extreme danger of contracting HPV (if you haven’t already), and developing cervical cancer as a result.

“@PersonhoodFL believes women dying from cervical cancer is a consequence of sex.” Let me repeat, per NCI –

Persistent HPV infections are now recognized as the cause of essentially all cervical cancers

“Misogynistic hatred of cancer patients”?  How twisted in thinking does one have to be to make up a line like that? Want to see some real hate? @FeministRescue is now tweeting as @STFUFauxminists. Nice name huh? Kind of reeks of hate doesn’t it?  The post I read was at the tumlr account of STFUFauxminists. And it looks like this:


So loving and peaceful… oh, and tolerant… not

Back to HPV…

Sex can spread HPV. HPV is a leading cause of cervical cancer. Is that simple enough for you?

Again, from CDC:

People can also lower their chances of getting HPV by being in a faithful relationship with one partner; limiting their number of sex partners; and choosing a partner who has had no or few prior sex partners. But even people with only one lifetime sex partner can get HPV. And it may not be possible to determine if a partner who has been sexually active in the past is currently infected. That’s why the only sure way to prevent HPV is to avoid all sexual activity. (emphasis is mine)

The answer is simple. Close your legs and stop the spread of this disease.

As for the title I chose for this post… I realize that not everyone in the prochoice community is as hateful as the one noted above, but a vast majority of them condone this type of attitude.  And you have to ask why conservatives are intolerant?  You should be too.
