Child Free: Feminism
So, I know many people are annoyed by my feminist ramblings on reproductive rights, but too bad, you can always push the "back" button. Anyway, I have been doing some informal research on the cost of health insurance for my future tubal ligation, and I have found that on average, which pregnancy costs removed, women pay far more than men on health insurance. Now, this is understandable, as pregnancy and birth control can be very expensive, but perhaps things would be less expensive overall if those of us who will not be using our uterus' can just get sterilized.|
Of course, this cannot be allowed because my poor little delicate mind cannot possibly make a decision about my body, so tubal ligation is either not covered, or is denied. How does this make sense? I cannot escape my uterus and the costs of it. And people wonder why I wish to become a man, no more gynecologists, pap smears, birth control, sterilization denials, breast exams, abstinence bullshit, slut-shaming... why on earth would I ever choose to stay female?
Anyway, I am still on my quest for a sterilization. Perhaps then my future health insurance plans will cost me less, and I wont have to deal with gynecologists anymore. There seems to be no downside to tubal ligations... other than still being female.
