That last link provides a great segue into a problem I had recently with Facebook. I am running ad campaigns to increase my readership, and tried to create an ad that used my recent IUD post as the link. Facebook denied the ad. I said much more salacious and controversial things in my Rush Limbaugh post, which also addressed contraception, and was allowed to run.
The main difference between the two forms of contraception? The Birth Control Pill can ostensibly be taken to relieve several problems that plague women during puberty and during menstruation. Paragard IUD, which was directly referenced in the tagline of the ad, “I love my Paragard!” offers no benefits other than not allowing me to get pregnant. That’s it. There’s no hormones, no benefits other than never worrying about whether or not my uterus will suddenly have a passenger.
Clearly, Facebook outright refuses to be seen to encourage sex without consequences. Someone in their advertising oversight department, deep down, agrees with Rush Limbaugh and thinks that women should stop having so much sex, and should suffer life-altering consequences if they dare to continue in their whorish ways.
