Exactly! Regardless of whether he technically cheated (I don’t think he did, by the way), he definitely fucked up. You gotta be a grownup and own that shit, my dude. Winning the semantics debate isn’t worth losing your lobster.
Even if “life” begins at conception, it doesn’t thrive at conception. It isn’t autonomous at conception.
The question is should we force people to save the lives of others? The answer is emphatically no when it comes to bodily autonomy. No one’s coming after our blood and organs despite the fact it would save a huge number of lives. A dead person has more rights than a pregnant woman in a pro-life world. Read more
omg came here to say this... who are these people only using 12 tampons a cycle??? how do I train my body into this!
Yeah, who gets away with only using 12 tampons per cycle?
I’ve been using the Lunette for about 2 years. Great investment and cuts down on so much waste I would have just been putting into a landfill. I use it with a copper IUD as well and it hasn’t caused any issues, plus it’s large enough to accommodate the extra flow that comes with that type of BC.
I’ve started using a cup in the past year or so. I still need to use a pad as backup when I’m sleeping and during the first couple of days of my period, just because I need to empty it that often. My cramps are significantly less with it, too, which I’m happy with.
I wish cups got more attention—so much better for the planet. There is a learning curve for many women. But I’ve been using one for about 15 years now. Keeper then Diva Cup and now Meluna. 3 buys in 15 years ain’t bad. :)
It was Jezebel (mostly the commenters) who turned me on to menstrual cups. I’ve been a user for almost 5 years, and I’ll never go back to tampons or pads. I also recently learned that two of my four sisters use a cup as well!
I know a couple women who use them and swear by the diva cup (like, they started discussing it at brunch out of the blue...). I did not know that was a brand until this article but sounds like more women should use them if they’re that economical and environmentally friendly.
Excuse me while I scream in helpless rage at the injustice of this shit.
There’s definitely treatment for anti-social personality disorder (the formal diagnosis a lot of people still refer to as sociopathy), but it’s primarily focused on managing symptoms (like explosive anger or substance abuse) and providing support for family members/loved ones. Idk how effective it is, but it exists.
