Yo if man ever did this I’d castrate him.
Luckily I have nexplanon.
What…? Dudes do this? Wow.
This is another one of those things I’d literally never heard of any guy doing until I saw it on Tumblr. But there’s an ad for it, so someone must be out there being a fuckaround.
I’ve heard of men doing this when I volunteered at a shelter for abuse victims. It’s another form of control. They’ll destroy her birth control and impregnate her so she’s stuck with him because of the baby.
Yeah, it happens and if a man ever tried this shit with me I would splatter him all over the fucking basement with a chainsaw.
Sometimes your partner will flush your pills, force you to not take them, pop the condom, and if you are pregnant force you not to have an abortion It happens..A lot.
Honestly I think I’m too strong for that shit. But then again I don’t attract men like that in the first place, I’m extraordinarily hard to control.
And I if I even found out that the person I’m with decided to do that I’m fuck him up.
Yeah but these things can go both ways. I know females who will go through lengths to keep a guy. I’ve heard of stories of girls breaking condoms, stop taking their own birth control, and persuading the other partner to do it raw. I believe both parties can manipulate and use force with this kind of act.
It’s not about strength cause if it was then only weak women would get abused. Which is a disgusting idea anyways but it isnt true. In my town they have these posters in all the women’s health centers. So this isn’t just tumblr. This is real.
Why do you think these legislators are doing this with birth control? They are abusers and want large scale control over bodies that aren’t even connected to them. Men do this to their partners regularly and I know people who are victims of this type of abuse. Forced pregnancy and non body agency are tools of abusers.
I did a whole intervention project about this when I was working at a DV shelter last summer. It’s commonly called reprodutive coercion. It’s definitely real and it happens a lot. Elizabeth Miller has done some good research about it, and Futures Without Violence has some really good resources if you explore their site
^^^ Thank you for the resources!!
Nothing beats this kind of intimacy, when it’s about 3am and it feels like you’re the only two people in the world. There are no words or intentions, you’re just happy lying next to each other knowing that you never want to do this with anyone else. Just to consider that you’re each, essentially, a bag of bones and organs and muscles, and yet you’re both so much more than that because you’ve found each other and suddenly everything makes so much sense.
do you ever just “what the fuck is the point” so hard that you stop everything you’re doing and stare and pretty much wonder why you don’t vanish from existence because the level of done you are should pretty much deconstruct your biological makeup

Fast food strike wave spreads to Detroit, St. Louis
May 10, 2013
St. Louis, and last month’s in New York and Chicago, today’s work stoppage is backed by a local coalition including the Service Employees International Union, and the participants are demanding a raise to $15 an hour and the chance to form a union without intimidation.
Organizers say that over a hundred workers joined the St. Louis strike between Wednesday and Thursday. That included a group of Jimmy John’s workers who alleged that management humiliated them by requiring them to hold up signs in public with messages including “I made 3 wrong sandwiches today” and “I was more than 13 seconds in the drive thru.”
“Sometimes I walk for more than an hour just to save my train fare so I can spend it on Ramen noodles,” St. Louis Chipotle worker Patrick Leeper said in an e-mailed statement Thursday. “I can’t even think about groceries.”
A spokesperson for Jimmy John’s declined to comment on Thursday’s strike; McDonald’s and Wendy’s did not respond to inquiries last night.
As I’ve written elsewhere, the fate of the fast food strike wave carries far-reaching implications: Fast food jobs are a growing portion of our economy, and fast food-like conditions are proliferating in other sectors as well. Organizers say the fast food industry now employs twice as many Detroit-area workers as the city’s iconic auto industry. These strikes also come at a moment of existential crisis for the labor movement, a sobering reality that was brought into sharp relief in December when Michigan, arguably the birthplace of modern US private sector unionism, became the country’s latest “Right to Work” state.
Along with a shared significant supporter—SEIU—the campaigns in New York, Chicago, St. Louis and Detroit have apparent strategies in common. Rather than waiting until they’ve built support from a majority of a store’s or company’s workers, they stage actions by a minority of the workforce designed to inspire their co-workers. Rather than publicly identifying the campaign and its organizers with a single international union, these union-funded efforts turn to allied community groups to spearhead organizing. Rather than training all their resources on a single company, they organize against all of the industry’s players at once. And—faced with legal and economic assaults that have weakened the strike weapon—these campaigns mount one-day work stoppages that are carefully tailored to maximize attention and minimize, but not eliminate, the risk that workers will lose their jobs.
Whether these strategies can ever compel a fast food giant to negotiate with its employees remains to be seen.
“After what I would consider well over three decades of wage suppression, workers in this particular industry—and then I think it’ll go to others—are realizing that their only way up the wage ladder is through their own organizations,” CUNY labor studies lecturer Ed Ott said Wednesday. Ott, a board member of the community organizing group that spearheaded the New York fast food strike, added, “The only way these workers are going to be able to advance these jobs is through unionization. And I think that idea has finally gotten traction.”
Update (9:15 AM Friday): According to the campaign, a walkout by twenty workers at Detroit’s 10400 Gratiot Avenue McDonald’s prevented the store from operating. Some workers brought in as strikebreakers to replace those striking workers chose to join the strike instead.
Organizers say that by day’s end, today’s strike could be the largest fast food work stoppage yet, topping last month’s 400-strong strike in New York.
