OK dear strangeland readers, hold on to your hats, this is the big one. This is the burning question I and many female viewers continue to ask ourselves and often don't share with others. Why is it that the issue of birth control and all it's entirety soley seems to fall on females?
After careful research, it seems to appear that most males are not interested in the burden of the reproductive cycle but only concerned with the most relevent facts that they lay onto their significant others. Are you on the pill? Perhaps the patch (because it's easier to verify it's placement) and where is it located on your body?
When did the entire responsibility of procreation fall on the female species? I understand the freedom of choice and the desire to engage in behavior that could produce an offspring (although there is no desire for that), and to behave responsibly. What irks me and I am sure many woman in this day and age is the assumption that most males have that the woman will take care of those details.
Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't this a 50/50 process? How can one of the parties assume no responsibility and the other be expected to pick up the slack?
Yeah, yeah, there are a few males out there that say they would gladly take a male birth control if it was available and all that, but so what. The fact of the matter is that it is not available in the good U S of A and like it or not it probably won't be in quite some time. So what should we do in the meantime? I think we should begin to think more progressively and take responsibilty for our own actions in the meantime. If you want play, then you got to be protected. And that goes for all parties concerned. It is not just a female issue, it is a mutual responsibility and it should be treated as such.
I am now getting off my soap box :)
