This woman is taking a birth control pill. IS THIS FEMINIST?
Really? Really? You should know better than to ask that question. We just puked in our mouths a little, hearing you ask that question. That’s how much better you should know. We just e-mailed all of your friends to tell them you asked us that question and we puked in our mouths because you asked it and you promote eating disorders because no-one can hear your stupid voice coming out of your smelly face without puking. You love making people puke and your face smells like puke because you are a stupid smelly puke person. “Mleeh mee mleeeeh, I want you to throw up on everything!” That’s YOU.
Anyway, aside from the fact that the medical establishment is founded on suppressing women’s internal wisdom, best expressed by our uses of herbs and tinctures, the very phrase “birth control” is patriarchal to the core, in that its construction refers to medicine’s attempts to “control” human bodies and even Mother Nature herself. The preferred term is “menstrual assistance,” or “thing that when you put it in your mouth you don’t get pregnant, no, the other thing,” or, ideally, “super-duper ova pooper.” Not that any of this matters, because this woman is blatantly appropriating “not being pregnant” from women with real fertility problems. PROBLEMATIC.
