Return post, perhaps

Dear World of Science,

After 90-odd years of female suffrage around much of the world and now that we are nearing income and educational parity, I think it’s time you fucking understood that me not wanting to get pregnant doesn’t preclude me wanting the rest of my body to work properly.

In joyous anticipation of your prompt fucking response,

Mistress La Spliffe


Still thinking about the T-Thing. That’s my new name for 'IUD', a term in which there are far too many syllables, and if I’m getting one I’m going to be thinking of it too often to waste a spare syllable each time. Although part of the appeal of the T-Thing is that I’ll hardly have to remember it at all. Not that that’s my problem with Marvellon. Call hubris, but I have a hard time imagining not remembering taking something as important as that pill everyday. No, I’d like the T-Thing so I DON’T FEEL LIKE SHIT. I’ll hope it clears by the end of the weekend, and if not I’ll at least switch brands. A T-Thing seems like a big commitment. Not quite buying a house in the suburbs, but definitely ball-gazing a little.

Did that make sense? No? Good.

One more thing before I go: it makes me want to sick up when people who supported a neo-conservative agenda a couple of years ago support Israel’s present actions, which are so obviously harmful to the spread of liberalism and democracy in the Middle East. I always saw the frustrated idealism that went into neo-conservatism, saw that it was a half-baked, half assed and completely unrealistic utopian drive. So half-baked, half-assed and unrealistic that I was never quite sure if it was a real emotional yearning for the spread of freedom or a veiled form of racism and ethnocentrism. Thanks for clarifying, asshole. To be fair, it isn't universal.

When considering birth control, don't forget to look into how much it increases the risk of breast cancer. There's a possibility that the pill and all the other forms of contraception (like the patch etc) that increase female hormones might raise the risk to 1 in 3 if you use them longterm. I found out that I was in that group and quit. I guess it helps that my fiance and I are in a position that we'd be fine with having a baby in the next few years (not before the wedding! I want to wear my dress!) that I'd rather risk pregnancy and not cancer. Keep it in mind.

Mistress La Spliffe ha detto...

Oh, fucking *perfect*.

Thanks for the heads up, Sugar!

Melbine ha detto...

Not to get so personal, but we've been using condoms for 4 years now and only got pregnant when we stopped using them because we wanted a baby! They're not for everyone I know, but I hated being on the pill (btw, have you ever just tried another pill? I hated marvellon, enjoyed tri-cyclen much better) so they were the perfect alternative. They're only a miniscule amount less effective than other birth control. No worries about cancer necessary!

Mistress La Spliffe ha detto...

Tri-cyclen. I'll investigate. Condoms are fine, but I kinda, sorta, don't like them.

Glad you're back, Mel!

Jiri ha detto...

This won't be useful, and certainly not as useful as Sugarplums's comment, but you can't stop your body from being able to be pregnant without side-effects, however minute. That's the falling of our approach to science - we expect it to allow us to get something for nothing. Maybe the closest thing is the rhythm method, and I've heard that there's a machine that lets you spit on it and then tells you whether you should be using a condom or don't have to worry about it.

Mistress La Spliffe ha detto...

Jiri, I could agree with you more whole-heartedly if I wasn't on the lowest dosage pill my doctor could think of and still feeling like furious cat-crap. When it comes to the pill, this as as minute as the side effects are going to get, which is bullshit because it's actually debilitating.

Do I want something for nothing? Yep! Do I think I can get it? No, but I think women deserve something a little less ass-painy when the economic model and gender relations of our race is now based in part on us choosing when we're going to start poppping them out.

That machine sounds pretty cool, though. Sounds so *Japanese*. I want one.

Jiri ha detto...

Ask AC about the machine; she's the one I've heard about it from. BTW, I like your postings about what's going on in the Middle East - they have good reasoning behind them.

Mistress La Spliffe ha detto...

I will, though AC's school of birth control isn't one I'm ready to enroll in yet.

Thanks Jiri. Michael Ignatieff is reasoning really well these days too, with perhaps a less darkly paranoid vision than mine. I endorse him.
