Reproductive Control

I have needed birth control. My current method of not getting pregnant is abstinence. This is highly convenient. Though it’s always listed as a method along with the cervical cap, vaginal ring, IUD and other preventative measures with an emphasis on efficiency (100%!), as someone who hasn’t much time (and does not enjoy errands) it’s …

Did Rush Limbaugh Seriously Just Tell Feminists That He Wants to Watch Them Have Sex?

Limbaugh, inventor of the infamous term “feminazi”, has insulted women across America. If you haven’t heard, Republicans prevented women from testifying at the House contraceptive hearing and instead arranged for a panel of all dudes to have a dudely discussion about women’s contraceptives, and whether it’s basic healthcare that should be covered by insurance.
