Nope, not a misandrist. IDGAF why or how. Just that I'm not.

Okay, you went back and bolded the "it's no surprise that women resent or hate men" statement and then made a point that you were NOT a misandrist.

I guess I'm confused, are you disagreeing with Allan or not?

Fair enough! Real talk, I'm very much against labeling someone or having someone hold themselves strictly to some single moral code so I'm glad you're not a misandrist!

*"
That means that a woman isn't a misandrist just because of a moment here or there where she gets pissed at something a privileged man is doing/saying/trying to legislate. And I was agreeing with the author.

What about the feminist extremists who use the word "womyn" and write off-off-off broadway plays about their periods and shit? Would you agree that they are misandrists?

For the record I was pretty happy about the free birth control legislation that passed yesterday! It'll raise my insurance but seriously it's cheaper in the long run since condoms are fucking expensive especially if you bone down all day every day.

To that I'd say there's always extremes of any given group.

You referring to The Vagina Monologues? The one part that basically calls a sexual encounter with an underage girl and an adult woman as "a good rape" is infuriating, and that the rapist is also called "a rescuer from [the victim] needing men for sexual satisfaction" is disgusting as well.

Well, not only that, but it's also WAAAAAY cheaper than raising a child. This is for private insurance, but next year it takes effect for all insurances, if I'm not mistaken. (This can cover any FDA-approved BC, which inculdes IUDs, implants, and possibly sterilization. If so,, i'm extremely excited for the last one. Now I need to get insured.)

I do not understand your fascination with sterilization but as long as you don't try to push for mandatory sterilization then I won't call you crazy?

I have never heard or read The Vagina Monolouges.

It's because I have the forgone conclusion that I have some useless organs and want to do away with them permanently.

Mandatory sterilization is okay in theory, but would be impossible to implement. Personally, I'd just want to start with taking away the government incentive to reproduce. Fat chance that is.


Oh, and as for TVM? Don't. You're not missing anything.

I goofed again! I meant a sterilization program where people can get fixed and if they are stupid enough to change their mind, it's 100% reversible and safe. And maybe use this in junction with a kind of parenting license. I mean, we have to have licenses to "own" some dangerous animals, guns, vehicles because these can all seriously injure or kill someone. Yet, having a kid, which negates ANY sort of Go Green thing you implement because the carbon footprint of giving birth in a country like this is too big to ever reverse, is not restricted when it affects the whole damn planet.


!!!!! ME NO BATSHIT CRASSY PERSON!!!!

Not without considerable cost at least for tubals. Vasectomies are relatively simpler, both literally and in a societal sense. Surgeries involving female bits are more risky, complicated, and expensive because it's going into a body cavity.

Not to mention that some doctors place on women this arbitrary age of 30 before they'll believe the woman really doesn't want kids, when they have zero objections with woman wanting to have kids at any time before that. Pregnancy is far, far riskier than any preventative procedure because women still DIE from childbirth and other pregnancy related diseases/fetal issues.

Hopefully, the new health mandate will change all that. Because SOME politicians get that preventative measures will always cost less than pregnancy, childbirth, and raising the darn thing.

ETA because I don't proofread enough before I submit.
