Screw around, ladies! Makes you more moral than a douchey Times columnist

Jesse touched on Ross Douthat’s latest excretion yesterday (summary: yes, killing doctors rape victims dying women blah blah, but did you know YOUNG WOMEN ARE FUCKING AND GETTING AWAY WITH IT?), and it was so exhausting to read Douthat’s lies and innuendo that I was really happy that other bloggers…

Oh no, people might have birth control and houses!

Now the squawking about the economic stimulus has moved onto stoking racist fears about ACORN. And yes, I mean racist—speaking as someone who hails from the land of race-obsessed crazy white people, I can speak with assurance that the “community organizer” thing and endless squawking about ACORN during the election…

Yaz dinged for curing a disease of tradition

I’m always a little suspicious when our current FDA, which has been on a mission to make birth control hard for women to get, makes a move in the direction of birth control. But, like Tracy Clark-Flory, I can’t help but think it’s a good thing that they’re reining in…

Extremely weird personal reactions offered up for public discussion

So Jessica has a post up about a truly wretched Dear Abby answer to a woman who wanted her boyfriend to split the costs of birth control with her. (Dear Abby’s advice? Don’t bother him with you girlie shit. Okay, I’m paraphrasing, but that’s the basic gist of it.) To…

Frankie Says Submit

The Austin-American Statesman had a profile of Protestants who, unsatisfied with the overly pro-woman ways of mainstream Protestantism* have decided to embrace the Catholic view of birth control. That is, to not use it, because if women’s lives aren’t fraught with fear of getting pregnant, then they are getting away…

The Man With The Death-Ray Eyes

Big Pharma is standing in the way of male birth control medication because they say guys just don’t want it. But in 2008, there’s still no birth control for men. What happened? In a word: money. With the cost of new-drug development hovering in the hundreds of millions of dollars,…

Oh. My. God.

A reporter asks John McCain whether birth control should get the same insurance coverage as wang stiffener (the scientific name), a legitimate question about health care coverage in America. Here’s his response: You can see why McCain doesn’t favor negotiating with Iran. Just mention Viagra and you can run roughshod…

Teenage succubi taking birth control because they want to get pregnant

One of the worst problems in American politics is that once a wingnut myth takes off, it never dies, no matter how much evidence you can marshal against it. There are people who will go to their graves believing that there was a good reason to think that Saddam Hussein…

Pregsplosion!

It occurs to me upon reading this that the last movie I saw which mentioned condom use was Knocked Up. And they did it wrong. As summer vacation begins, 17 girls at Gloucester High School are expecting babies—more than four times the number of pregnancies the 1,200-student school had last…

Ripe opportunity, but only alternative media cares

As I expected, the American Life League coming clean about their desires to ban the birth control pill with their “Pill Kills” campaign has had the intended effect of making it easier for those of us who’ve been busting our asses trying to get out the word that the anti-choice…
