It's happening.

Me and my loverboy.

First of all, I am fine. I just want to say that because I know people care. I wasn't writing about being average as a bad thing, in fact I don't think it's a bad thing at all. It's just that as a sex educator, I think that the perception of a lot of non sex educator types of people is that you are this voracious, insatiable, sexual maniac who does everything bigger and better than your regular Joe. I guess I just thought I was confessing to being regular. Not unhappy or unfulfilled, even though I would really like to shoot darts out of my coochie and hit a bullseye every time. I was just saying that I'm normal (at least in some ways and I'm sure that people who know me would beg to differ.)

I think I've been really stressed lately, and that I'll be happier after tomorrow because we (really meaning I) have to stop buying stuff for our apartment. I think the wasting of money and the collection of shit has been hard on both me and J. After tomorrow, which is March 1st, a good day to really start over, at least that's what I've decided, I'm going to stop buying anything that isn't essential. It will be a challenge. I may even start keeping track of what it is I buy.. I guess it means I won't be buying any of this (NSFW).

I'm not really sure why anyone would buy it, but apparently I guess it's because "man" is wildly seduced by the smell of vulva. Just apply it to the back of your hand and sniff. Like perfume. Or cologne. Only it's the delightful scent of vulva in a bottle. I may have to get me a sniff. I mean, aren't you curious?


Last week, an South Dakota legislature passed a law outlawing virtually all abortions, even in cases of rape or incest. South Dakota's anti-choice governor may sign the bill into law this week, setting off a chain of events that could take this issue directly to the U.S. Supreme Court.

This is only the beginning.

You might believe it doesn't affect you or that you're too old to care about having an abortion, or you might be a man, and therefore it's a procedure that (at least for now) is impossible for you to ever undergo. But that doesn't matter. This is about THEM telling YOU what you can and cannot do with your own body. This is all about you, because this is about your FREEDOM of choice being denied you. Life should be about the FREEDOM to make our own decisions about our body and our beliefs. Because you should be the only person who has control over your body and your rights (of course there are extreme exceptions here). This is about our right to decide what we want to do to our bodies. And this isn't only about abortion.

This kind of stuff makes me sick. To be honest, I probably wouldn't choose to have an abortion if I were to get pregnant now (unless I knew something was terribly wrong with the fetus.) After going through a biology course in my masters program, I don't think it's something I could or would want to put my body through. Fortunately, I haven't been faced with making that choice, but I have made plenty of other choices that affect and impact the rest of my time on this Earth. And I want the FREEDOM to continue to choose. This shouldn't be an "issue." It shouldn't be a debate about what a woman chooses to do with her body. It shouldn't be the government's concern. Why are they so anti-choice? So that eventually, without the exsitence of abortion (okay, it will never happen but some do dream), they can have a mammoth military that is ready to fight more wars that should never have been started? Or so back alley is once again chic*? What's the government really trying to do here?

I mean, doesn't the government have bigger fish to fry at this point? Shouldn't they be concerned with the millions of lives in jeopardy because of their war? Shouldn't they be trying to save some of the lives that already exist on this planet?

It doesn't make sense. Not at all. Not to me.

*this is not the good kind of chic
