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.
