The general socialization of women to place the needs of others before their own and naturalistic models of sexuality where needs (usually male) are given the status of biological urges or drives result in many woman internalizing a sense of responsibility for men’s sexual pleasure. Hence, women find it difficult to say no to sex. Moreover, they realistically fear the consequences of saying no.
(‘Its Everywhere’ Sexual Violence as a Continuum)
I am legitimately perplexed right now. Like okay granted in high school you probably didn’t want children, but now i’m seeing so much people getting pregnant who are like in the peak of their years, more than halfway through college or just in general having unplanned pregnancies.
I’m not understanding why it’s so hard to use a condom. Like they’re not expensive, you can even get them for free at places! It doesn’t take away too much of the feeling, and PLUS it protects you from HIV, STDS etc.
What exactly isn’t marketable about something that prevents you from contracted a LIFE LONG DISEASE not to mention a life-long responsibility (children I suppose).
Im going to assume that if you’re having sex without protection you want children. You have to. Because we’re too old to still think pulling out works, and we’re too old to be so naive as to believe everything your man says. Do you know what generation we live in? Your man can be cheating…you don’t know! “well i trust him!” thats great…and? Do you also trust he can support a child when he doesn’t pull out in time?
Jeesh thats so…intimate..allowing a man to like..ejaculate inside of you.
Birth Control is effective sure…but I mean it’ll be JUST YOUR LUCK. Then you can take medicines that cancel out your BC and you don’t even know then BOOM you’re having twins or something.
I just want everyone to get comfortable and settled in their lives with a man they can depend on and trust then have unprotected intercourse.
Rules of the Road: If your significant other is not college educated or even WORSE doesn’t have a JOB (maybe thats why you all can’t afford condoms?) please don’t have unprotected sex with him. please. please? That male is not ready for nobody’s baby.
K. I’m done. Please wrap it up.
Being a leader is great and all, I like having responsibilities and making change, creating an impact, leaving my mark etc…but it’s all pretty nerve wrecking. Like I don’t wanna bee that person who gets the finger pointed at them when stuff goes wrong. The most I can do is just keep trying i suppose.
