And this is some sex negative bullshit up in here. First, sex isn’t just meant for having kids. I don’t ever want to be a parent and I damn well intend to have sex. Stop telling people how to use their bodies.
Also, what if the dream I want to follow is to fuck a whole lot and never have a kid…cuz it is.

This gave my whole household a good quality laugh tonight.
Book cake (by Lesley Smith (Freelance Journalist))
For anyone who’s ever wondered “how can a person so fat even be happy?!” I am going to fill you in on a little secret.
First, drop “so fat” from the sentence. “How can a person even be happy?!” sounds kind of ridiculous, doesn’t it? I mean, I think we can all understand how a person could be happy or sad or whatever. Right! See, that’s all you need to do. See me as a person instead of as just my fat.
Do this any time you start to ask yourself something like this. “How can black people…” “How can gay people…” “How can female people…” etc etc. You’ll cut down on a lot of stupidity that might otherwise (inadvertently, I am sure) fall out of your mouth.
A letter from the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists
The onslaught of laws focusing on denying reproductive health care rights is a concerted campaign against women. These laws are not grounded in science or evidence-based medicine.
The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists believes that access to family-planning counseling and to the full array of contraceptives is a basic and essential component of preventive health care for women.
Efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, which provides cervical cancer and mammography screening, contraception and other preventive care to millions of women, are egregious and disproportionately hurt poor women.
As physicians for women’s health care, ob-gyns see firsthand the havoc that punitive ideology-based laws have on the health of women and their families. These ill-conceived laws are based on the pretext of protecting health, but they do anything but that.
Mandating that women be legally forced to undergo transvaginal ultrasound or any other medical procedure against their will and against their physician’s judgment is an outrageous violation of patient autonomy and the confidential doctor-patient relationship. Decreasing access to family planning and contraception will only increase unintended pregnancies and negatively affect family and societal health.
Politicians were not elected to, nor should they, legislate the practice of medicine or dictate the parameters of the doctor-patient relationship. Our message to politicians is unequivocal: Get out of our exam rooms.
