Blogger Turns the Table On Who Is At Fault For An Unwanted Pregnancy

Gabrielle Blair, mother of six and a blogger, recently tweeted a remarkable thread that went viral. In it, she makes the case that men, as opposed to women, are at fault for unplanned pregnancies because of their irresponsible ejaculations and failure to use condoms, which are more readily accessible than birth control for women. This has obviously caused a lot of consternation with many men on Twitter. I mostly created this thread because it's amazing and everyone should see it.

@ViolaSebastian, thank you! That is a great blog post/Twitter thread. I only made it through about half the comments, but they were of a pretty high caliber, too. I can see myself referring back to her points in the future.

I could have written this myself. I’ve been a huge condom fan my entire life (sex life I mean!). All the pluses she talks about are true! They are so easy to buy and make clean up a breeze! I’ve always required boyfriends to use them before I got married. No glove no love ;) I’ve always been amazed at the guys who think up a million excuses not to use a condom. They all sound like a bunch of babies. I have sons and if they got a girl pregnant, I would completely blame them. They have choices too. If they chose not to use a condom then that’s on them.

I’ve met sooo many men who are “allergic to latex.”  Uh, no, buddy. Even if you are, there are alternatives.

Mr. Shrew really is allergic to latex (he accidentally bought some condoms that were "mostly" latex free once - it was not pretty!). There are some really great latex-free condoms on the market. (I'm some where in the middle of perimenopause, and my doctor advised me that I probably shouldn't take hormonal BC anymore, plus it started giving me horrible headaches, in addition to my "normal" migraines. Mr. Shrew is going to get a vasectomy at some point, but we have too many other expenses right now. Condoms are our best option.)

My mother has a latex allergy. She found out when she used some latex gloves and her hands began to swell. Eek, can't imagine it down below so to speak. :(

Funnily enough, not a single one of my ex boyfriends were allergic to latex. Because I told them flat out before we ever became intimate that I never have sex without a condom. So they knew not to pull that shit with me ;)

I once had a guy who tried to pull the "but wouldn't it be great if we made a baby?" Ugh. No. Put on a condom.

Hahahaha! I’m glad I only dated guys with severe aversions to making babies. Just like me! ? the two times I made a baby with someone ended in 9 months of misery ?

This is amazing.  Can she do one for all the men who think that women having the right to abortion means that they should have the right to not pay child support :pray:

      It's December and we still haven't had our first freeze of the season.

      In light of the issues with the electrical grid in Texas, perhaps I should make an appeal to Rufus to continue to keep us above freezing? 🤔

      Advice needed from anyone with experience planning a Catholic wedding
      She's been engaged less than a week and I've got questions.
      Booking a church or venue is done way in advance so we're on that now.   
      Why do churches ask what the date is when they say specifically on the website that you can't set a date until discussing it with the coordinator?  Why can't they ask for a range? Since when have Catholic churches been such pains in the ass about being a member of that parish to get married there?  She's coming in from out of state for the wedding, she doesn't have a parish here.  I'm not religious and my local parish church is ugly.  My childhood parish waived this and said they could marry there, but it's not an ideal location and aesthetically it's fine but she'd prefer older and more cathedralesque if they do the church wedding.   My grandpa's old church is beautiful and she's in love with it....but they're the only one who hasn't gotten back to us.  (St. Hedwig's for anyone familiar with Chicago's Bucktown) Bribes still work, right?  In the old days you could slip the church a "donation" and they'd be a lot more lenient about weddings, annulments, and funerals for non-practicing Catholics.  How are we supposed to figure out the going rate for graft 2021?   I have no problem lying to the administrative staff and claiming to be a practicing Catholic if it helps, does that make me a sociopath?  Although I don't want to lie to a priest directly.  Can you be a sociopath with religious guilt? I've been married twice, both times to Catholics.  First wedding in a Baptist church and second in congregational or community something.  I did that because I suck at planning this kind of thing and fundy-lites will marry anyone with a 20 minute meet and greet, apparently.  I wanted to elope both times and was over ruled both times so I resentfully half-assed it so this is the first time I'm trying to help plan a wedding properly.  
      The church she wants will waive the bride and groom being members if one of their parents are.  I love my daughter so much, but if I have to start actually attending church to make this work I will expect her to pay for the increase in my wine and edible budget.  Member for at least four months.  Driving from the burbs into the city once a week timing it so I get there just in time to toss them an envelope with money I'd rather keep and skedaddle is something I'd rather avoid.
      I know lots of people think what I'm trying to do is awful.  That non-practicing Catholics shouldn't get married in the church, that it's a sin to try and game the system, etc.  That church shopping for the aesthetic is  a sacrilege or such.  I understand how people can feel that way, it's valid.  But people like that would disapprove of me for a million other reasons anyway, so I'm okay with that.
      This is how I'm rationalizing it. 
      I raised her Catholic and while not practicing as an adult she does believe in God, Jesus, giving a shout out to Mary and all that.  They are going to raise their kids Catholic in the sense of sending them to CCD so they have the religious ed and then they can make their own choices as adults.   I spent thousands of dollars on CCD over the years and two out of three of my kids don't know what an apostle is.  They owe me.   Being Catholic is as much a cultural thing as a religious choice and that's the only one we have.   You can't opt out of being Catholic, as my sister once learned when she went fundy-lite, due to the indelible mark of baptism so they keep you on the roster.  If you can't leave the church without a formal declaration then I there should be something in it for us.  One wedding and burial per Catholic no matter how lapsed seems fair to me. When my uncle died in the late 1950s the church wouldn't allow him to be buried in a Catholic cemetery so they put him in a secular one.  Several years later my dad made a sizable "donation" and voila, look who got exhumed and is now buried next to Grandma and Grandpa.  Wish he was here now to handle this.

      When everything will go on as planned, I will marry Mr. S. at the end of the year. But honestly my optimism is fading away (Covid19 and one other fucking annoying issue, that is more likely to get the wedding rescheduled than Covid19) . I wanted to tell it here, just...well...because. You understand?
