Thursday Links

Short post today, dear readers, but some great links for you.

After introducing the pill to the “abortion capital of the world”, the ladies of Georgia are no longer having quite as many abortions.  In other news, water is wet.

Carrying condoms can get you arrested, and are being used to profile women, both cisgender and transgender, as sex workers. As someone who used to carry condoms in my purse when I was going on a date, this is disturbing.

We already know that our elected representatives don’t like to hear the word vagina especially when they’re trying to regulate yours, but they’re grossed out by menstruation too.

One of my followers on Facebook was awesome enough to tag me when linking this blog post by Carsie Blanton.  It’s a fantastic read, and of course, I agree with all of it.  Take a look, tell me what you think!

Thursday Links, And Facebook Hates Recreational Contraception

If this is how we're seen, how can we win?

Amina Filali, Morocco Rape Victim, Commits Suicide After Forced Marriage To Rapist

Lawmaker Suggests Beaten Ladies Remember the Good Times

Law Will Allow Employers to Fire Women for Using Whore Pills

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.
