This article was linked on Patty Bond’s blog and after reading TWO, and yes I mean TWO articles about how the Pill “benefited” Mothers on Mother’s Day (what a load of tripe), I thought I would post a link and a response here.
The Pill didn’t benefit women. It just made the ones who took it unpaid prostitutes. Women used to be able to demand that men “man up” after they got pregnant from premarital sex (if they hadn’t waited because surprising to all those safe sex advocated, many did wait till marriage before having sex). Actually, women used to be able to demand that men be men. And men took responsibility. Not any more. Now men and women have turned each other into sex toys that they can use and just discard with no care or concern about the other. Men and women become objects that have no feelings, no responsibility, no life, no worth. “Carrie” can sleep with “Mark,” “Steve,” “Chris,” “Alejandro,” “Ling,” and “Sarah” while “Steve” could be sleeping with “Chris,” “Daniel,” “Ming,” “Victoria,” “Manuela.” Neither “Carrie” or “Steve” realize, care to realize, or try to hide so that it is never acknowledged is that having sex with multiple partners is no way to have a relationship. Sex is not and cannot be consequence free. There are studies out there that show that the body actually releases hormones during sex to help the couple bond emotionally.
So by taking the Pill or using a condom or using any other sort of contraception you already have the mindset that you will only have the physical connection but nothing else. Guess what: our bodies aren’t made that way. We are made to bond emotionally and physically. And by inserting a wall in between one, you damage the other. You’re probably thinking: hey that’s great, sex with no consequences. WRONG! Not only are you damaging the physical connection (you make think a little latex doesn’t mean anything but it does) but it also damaging the emotional connection. By taking the Pill or using a condom or any other contraception you are saying to the other person that I am only using you to masterbate, to use you for my own personal sexual satisfaction. The Pill makes it all about me and nothing about you. Oh, you say that you help your partner reach climax but again it’s all for you personal satisfaction. You can feed yourself all kinds of lies about how the Pill makes you free to love your partner but in reality it’s all about you. You turn yourself and your partner into unpaid prostitutes for each other. When “Carrie” takes the Pill, she’s saying “Steve” is only there to be used as a toy. “Steve” ceases to be a person in “Carrie’s” world and vice versa. Dress it up in any language you want but it’s true. “Carrie” isn’t free, she’s just an unpaid prostitute and doesn’t realize it or doesn’t want to realize it.
Women gained rights NOT to become unpaid prostitutes but that’s what some feminists and society want you to believe, that by having sex whenever you want with whomever you want you are a free and liberated woman who’s on par with men. Yeah, both are in the cesspool of garbage because they are using each other as objects and not treating each other as people worthy of dignity and respect. That’s not rights or liberation: that’s oppression that we’ve willingly taken because we believe it sets us free. Actually, it’s killing us and we go blindly to our deaths. Sex isn’t everything. Don’t believe society. It doesn’t know what’s best for you. It only knows what keeps people enthralled to it and away from God and responsibility and respect for others and respect for life.
