Learning Gender Expectations

21 Mar

Hell yes Planned Parenthood LA!

I love this video (which actually has nothing to do with eggs or sperm) about how we’re taught about gender binary and expectations.

Yes for distinctions between Sex and Gender! Yes for all of this!

Check Your Condoms

Who runs the Planned Parenthood tumblr?

Can I be your friend? Can I work with you?

And on that note – Have your checked the expiration dates on your condoms this year?

And don’t forget your annual Gyno checkup.

5 Things To Do In Public Because You’re Comfortable With Your Body And Don’t Care Who Knows It

2 Feb

Do you ever wonder how you can express to the world how comfortable you are with your body and your sexuality? Do you feel the need to walk into crowded restaurants talking very loudly about HYMENS so people choose your conversations to eavesdrop on?  Well then, do I have some tips for you!

1) Next time you have a UTI and you’re out to brunch with your lady friends SATC style (P.S. can we talk about how terrible The Carrie Diaries looks?  Kill me.) point to your crotch and sing THIS GIRL IS ON FIRE!

2) Next time you’re painting the fun house red (get it?) while seducing (you saucy minx!) a potential pants-remover, spend your second cocktail together thinking up some creative euphemisms for period sex.  Examples include:

  • Driving the Blood Mobile to Schenectady
  • Doing the Last Scene of Hamlet, With Genitals
  • Salsa Dancing at the Y
  • Menstrucourse
  • Reenacting the Battle of Gettysburg — In My Pants
  • Al Gore
  • Pussy UFC
  • Making Manicotti Marinara

Points for creativity.

3) Buy a Divacup and then explain how it works to everyone you know.

4) Ask your brother how many body parts he can think of that are only 2 letters long.  Guess who has a kick-ass os?!

5) Volunteer at Planned Parenthood and then awkwardly tell your friends about the female condoms you pick up there (follow that link.  You will not regret it!).

Well done everyone.  Now we can party with fellow jewess Sarah Silverman!

Choices Choices Are No Fun…

21 Mar

Last month, after an upsetting phone conversation with her estranged husband, Ms. Taylor became light-headed and fell down a flight of stairs in her home. Paramedics rushed to the scene and ultimately declared her healthy. However, since she was pregnant with her third child at the time, Taylor thought it would be best to be seen at the local ER to make sure her fetus was unharmed.

Alone, distraught, and frightened, Taylor confided in the nurse treating her that she hadn’t always been sure she’d wanted this baby, now that she was single and unemployed. She’d considered both adoption and abortion before ultimately deciding to keep the child. The nurse then summoned a doctor, who questioned her further about her thoughts on ending the pregnancy. Next thing Taylor knew, she was being arrested for attempted feticide. Apparently the nurse and doctor thought that Taylor threw herself down the stairs on purpose.

The pro-life movement isn’t about saving lives, it’s about taking autonomy and decision making power from women. If you’re a woman who would never have an abortion, I support you.  I hope I never have to have one.  However, there is no need to make laws which force women to make your decision.

Being anti-choice is like someone mandating veganism for the whole country because they ‘know’ better and don’t trust you to be smart enough to also make that ‘right’ choice.  Anti-choice-ness is the taking away of women’s decision making power because women aren’t capable of being smart decision makers.  As a smart female decision maker I could never support it.

Ask ‘Em My Questions And Get Some Answers

In case you’re still trying to figure out whether the pro-life movement is interested in protecting the unborn or in shaming/punishing women who have sex.

Sometimes the evidence is so much more convincing than anything I could say.  I think this image explains my feelings at the moment.
