Guest / 4:30pm EST - We've been following the recent GOP debates and the news coming out of them, especially the recent attacks against Texas Gov. Rick Perry's executive order mandating young girls get vaccinated for the Human Papilloma Virus, or HPV. The debate over HPV is getting a lot of national attention, with Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann putting out some misleading information about the vaccine Gardasil. Dr. Perry Hilkitis, professor of applied psychology, public health and director of the Center for Health, Identity, Behavior & Prevention Studies, wrote a piece in Gay City News about how HPV affects gay men and joins us today to clear up the misinformation.
