@MissBoPeep:  THIS TIMES A MILLION. And I live in a very conservative state so these posts are amplified and more extreme. And they are reaaaaaalllly starting to get under my skin.

It’s gotten to the point now where when my alarm goes off to take my BCPs, I look at Fiance and say “oh, yeah, time to take my slut pills!”

All I can say is THANK GOD his girlfriend didn’t get pregnant. The last thing this world needs is for someone that stupid to reproduce.

*sigh*  I don’t even know what to say about this.  How does someone support condoms but not BC?  They’re both meant to do the same thing.  I hate FB because it gives everyone the opportunity to voice his/her opinions…and I love it for that same exact reason.

@MissBoPeep:  This makes me so mad!!!  🙁

I’ve been seeing a lot of “pro-life” blogs from my friends, and it’s like, “Girls.  You’ve NEVER BEEN PREGNANT.  Most of you are VIRGINS.  Shut the f*** up until you’ve had an unwanted, unplanned, going-to-ruin-the-rest-of-my-life pregnancy.”

And if it wasn’t for Planned Parenthood, who showed me my options, my parents never would have adopted my daughter, and we wouldn’t have a happy little six year old running around making everyone’s life just a little better.

Haha..WOW!  I am in medical school right now, just covering the endocrine/reproductive physiology, and there are sooooo many uses for oral contraceptives besides birth control, I was blown away!  I have been on BC pills since the 8th grade, but I liked to call them my “period control” pills, because that’s what I was taking them for!  Before them, I would have to skip school to stay home because my cramps/bleeding were so terrible!  Let’s just see a guy have a period once, I am sure they would be absolutely mortified!

This coming from a guy. Because, yeah, he knows EVERYTHING about a woman’s reproductive system and BCP! Seems like an expert to me

Oh god I have to restrain myself SO MUCH when I see posts like these on fb. It’s shocking how people don’t realize that the pill helps with all kinds of medical issues totally unrelated to pregnancy. My favorite comeback is that if BCP isn’t going to be covered (because you know, we’re whores who should live with the consequences of dirty sex), then Viagra shouldn’t be covered either. That always manages to piss off a few hypocrites.

If men could have children or had gynecological issues, birth control would be available in vending machines.

Also, in my opinion, if you want to be anti-contraceptives, you need to be for a society that treats single mothers with respect, even deference, and addresses the pay gap between men and women.

Just saying.

UGH IDIOT…

I’m really dreading the posts coming up in the next few months with this being an election year. I hate any kind of political post on Facebook. I’m thinking I may do a “deactivate” for awhile until it dies down.

He wouldn’t be so cocky (excuse the pun) if he put himself in a woman’s shoes.

@rubyred605:  I agree. I’ve seen a lot of these posts, what gets me most is that a lot are from guys who have no clue what it’s like to be a pregnant young girl… or from families who are well-off and women who are married and taken care of and never had to deal with an unplanned pregnancy. Makes me so mad! 

As one of the many, many women I know who takes BCP for hormonal reasons (I’d be in bed every day without them, sooo lethargic) it’s really ridiculous of him to say anything on the matter. 

 I’d honestly reply with, “do you have a uterus? Didn’t think so!” 😛
