Last week in Amarillo I was laying on the couch watching one of the 4 channels my parents have on their tv. Some how I got to watching a program about sex in marriage and watched a bit of it before I had to turn it off or something large and blunt would have gone through it. It basically boiled down to men needing 5 things in a marriage and women needing 5 things in a marriage. The men wanted a clean house to come home too and sex when he wanted it. It didnt matter if the women wanted it or not. It was quite sad, I learned that as a woman my biggest turn on in the opposite sex is if they clean. So there you have it, been married almost 3 years and the only times when Jason and I had good sex was when he scrubs the toilet. Oh yeah baby, scrub that toilet.
But seriously, the program was sad. What he was saying was so 1950s. Be the good wife, lay down so I may walk all over you. Blah. Its not for me, marriage is a partnership. Thats why I didnt marry a sexist pig. 😉
But that little rant brings me to this article by the Washington Post appropriately Forever Pregnant (or as I say, Hello Government, welcome to my uterus).
Go read it yourself, go on now………………
New federal guidelines ask all females capable of conceiving a baby to treat themselves — and to be treated by the health care system — as pre-pregnant, regardless of whether they plan to get pregnant anytime soon.
Okay, so thats not bad. The government wants the women of the country to be healthy…not the men because no way no how does the sperm make a bit of difference when it comes to baby making. Nothing wrong with being healthy but lumping everyone with a uterus together as if they are nothing but baby making machines is. But if this really is the case then women wouldnt be able to smoke and drink and well thats a lot of tax money not being made. Oh and no roller coasters, thats has to suck not being able to ride a coaster.
Women should also make sure all vaccinations are up-to-date and avoid contact with lead-based paints and cat feces, Biermann said.
So that means we should inject formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol (antifreeze), thimerosal (mercury), aluminum hydroxide, aluminum phosphate, etc. into our bodies but try not to eat paint chips and clean the litter box with our bare hands while eating dinner. Gotcha. Makes perfect sense doesnt it?
Experts acknowledge that women with no plans to get pregnant in the near future may resist preconception care.
So clinicians must find a “way to do this and not scare women,” by promoting preconception care as part of standard women’s health care, she said.
Gee, I wonder what other medical things docs sneak in, hmm.
Some medical facilities have already found a way to weave preconception care in with regular visits. At Montefiore Medical Center in Bronx, N.Y., a form that’s filled out when checking a patient’s height, weight and blood pressure prompts nurses to ask women, “Do you smoke, and do you plan to become pregnant in the next year? And if not, what birth control are you using?”
I already piss receptionists and nurses off by refusing to answer questions/fill out forms. Things as simple as my ssn. What the hell does my doctor need my ssn for?
On a lighter flip side note.
NEW YORKPro-life advocates celebrated approval of the new anti-abortion drug UR-86 by the Food and Drug Administration Tuesday, calling it a “safe and effective method” for terminating pregnant women while leaving their unborn children unharmed.
Pfizer, manufacturer of UR-86dubbed the “last-morning-ever pill”said the drug is intended only for occasions when the mind-set or politics of the mother threaten the life of the fetus.
Tuesday night, South Dakota legislators introduced a bill to impose a five-day waiting period for teenage girls and women before they can buy the pill, claiming its use does not adequately safeguard the lifestyle of the father, the laundry of the father, or the favorite meals of the father. The legislators cited Pfizer’s own published list of side effects of UR-86, which include domestic messiness, already-born-child neglect, and inadequate stocking of the fridge.
Still, Pfizer anticipates not only that the drug will be popular with husbands, but also that, once available over the counter, UR-86 will likely find a large consumer base in mothers-in-law, downstairs neighbors, and extramarital lovers.
