Irony and Hypocrisy Watch

Look at this bit of nonsense from the FDA- warning labels on condoms. (I am not even sure where manufacturers could put it without the print being so small as to require a magnifying glass to read.) The wackos on the right don't think this warning goes far enough. And, to be honest, there is no mention that condom use does not protect people from HPV.

But wouldn't a better remedy be to teach these facts as part of a comprehensive sex education curriculum? Oh wait... I forgot, the right wing wackos oppose sex ed that is anything but just say no. Oops... and they have also opposed vaccination for HPV. So, instead of prevention and education we get some tiny words on a condom packet, which of course people will be eager to read in that moment of passion. Way to go geniuses!
