Jeez, how does a woman mature into being such an idiot?

Please help with some basic maths. If it takes two people to make a baby, then two people should be prepared to deal with contraception. Right?

Yep, and one will be interested and the other committed.

Why is it that, even during a pandemic, contraception remains primarily a female concern?

Because committed.

Women, for obvious reasons, will probably always feel the need to be proactive about contraception

Quite, so what’s all the previous whining about?

  1. And where’s the difficulty in getting it? Is there a shortage? Are all the pill-makers working on Covid stuff instead?

    ’ In some areas, oral contraception isn’t available from SRH services for over-25s. In others, free emergency contraception is unavailable for certain younger age groups or not commissioned at all. ’

    Ah. She means getting it free. Or rather, paid for by the taxpayer.

  2. Yes, she does need help with basic maths. Or at least the logic underpinning it.

    Sure, it takes two people to make a baby (usually, perhaps not always these days, but let’s go with that).

    That does not necessarily mean that both people care about the outcome or have the same aims for that outcome. It takes two people for a stabbing – do we expect them both to be working towards the same objective?

    She’s confusing fact, intent and morality.

  3. “Mature” is the wrong verb. “Age” is nearer the mark.

    Tell me, how many of these Guardian idiots are only pretending – it’s a living, guv – and how many really are airheads?

  4. ‘Quite, so what’s all the previous whining about?’

    She doesn’t like the world as created. Men must fix it. She demands patriarchy.

  5. Why is it that, even during a pandemic, contraception remains primarily a female concern?

    *If* this is true, then men are stupid. I’m male, don’t want kids, have never wanted kids, so I’ve always taken contraception as seriously as hell. Except for that scare when I was 16 and dumb (but I repeat myself).

    I don’t trust the pill, never have, long term relationship or not. She should be writing to men saying do you want to be on the hook for the rest of your lives?

  6. “She should be writing to men saying do you want to be on the hook for the rest of your lives?”
    And then she’d be whining about women being denied the right to have babies.
    Addressing Guardian grievances is always no solution territory. What keeps the paper alive.

  7. Very astute, bis. I’m going to use that, “no solution territory.” Keep the people stirred up so you can have them stirred up.

  8. The lady in question forgets one of the most basic things in biology: A male in full rut does not think. We’re designed by Mother Nature not to.

    If we ever would in our younger, randier years and realised the actual, and inevitable, results of poking every woman who gives you the come-on, we’d have been running like hell from them, or adopted the Greek Solution…

  9. If men could notice a woman was broody, they’d take contraception more seriously and not trust women who say “I’m on the pill”

  10. Pcar – as a friend of mine claimed when she got unexpectedly pregnant, “I was on the pill but I had food poisoning and vomiting that month, oops”.

    She admitted to me much later that she’d just been slack about taking it
