a word from tally: the pill for dummies

by Tally

BASIC KNOWLEDGE EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW

So – I managed to stay awake for the first few minutes of Bill Maher last night, and he made a comment about Rush & SlutGate, and I had a tiny revelation.

As a female I have been on The (birth control) Pill for most of my adult life, and it never occurred to me until Rush and his ignorant yammering, that there must be millions of people who actually not only have no idea how it works, but HOW OFTEN YOU TAKE IT.

It’s now clear that Rush thinks it’s like Viagra, in that you take it when you want to have sex.  There is so much to say to this, but it’s starting to feel like making fun of someone who is handicapped.

Now before all of you who KNOW what’s up with the pill hurt yourselves from laughing at the obvious, stop and think about it – A LOT of people have no clue.

Sex Education is mostly NOT taught in the schools any more and the biology of The Pill would most likely be the last thing discussed even if it were. There are plenty of people who have no reason to know the mechanics of The Pill.

I’m even sure that there are many MEN who have that QUEASY GENE when it comes to Girlie Stuff™ and cannot, in all their macho glory, muster the bravery to go buy a box of tampons at the local supermarket.
