You probably didn’t click the prerequisite link to read the article, but I will summarize this before the lesson begins.
A Mormon blogger serially tweets a scientific truth that men are 100 percent responsible for all unwanted pregnancies.
Ooh…I bet you took a defensive stance on that sentence, didn’t you?
If you click the link and read each tweet listed in the article you will see that she addressed each and every rapid fire retort that’s swirling in your brain in defense of your responsibility as a man with sexual ability.
Seriously, click it and read it.
I can wait.
Not only is it a grand lesson in biology in a developmental sense but also speaks to the very hypocrisy I’ve spoken to you in the past about expectations on women.
Ok so I bet you skimmed it and closed your mind with the reasoning “She’s a man hater on the attack.”
No, grasshopper, her points are distinct and clearly accurate to the function and capability of your body over and above a woman’s body.
Remember when I told you my friend and I dominated the sex trivia game and kept the high score rating for as long as we were in college? I’m here to say this mother of six nearly perfectly correct.
One more time, read the article point by point and find the two bits she omitted.
Did you find them?
Nah, probably not, my sweet little headstrong Harry.
She failed to mention two ways in which the steps a woman takes can fail in preventing an unwanted pregnancy.
- Antibiotics are Birth control pills’ kryptonite. It’s like taking nothing at all. Bam! She’s got a baby on board
- Getting her tubes tied won’t necessarily prevent your Olympic swimmers from getting to the golden egg. That’s why I have my cousins David and Sarah.
So where is my lesson in this? When you become sexually active and you will eventually; you must take great care in how you proceed with your partner knowing that one slip-up on your part means fatherhood.
Ask yourself this question: “If we do this deed and she becomes pregnant is she someone I can invest a good portion of my life supporting her financially and emotionally while raising a child together lovingly for the next 18 years? Am I willing to put my needs, goals and life plans on the back burner for that length of time just so I can experience approximately 5 seconds of toe curling, mind blowing, nearly fainting dead away ecstasy?”
Weigh it carefully. What sacrifices would you have to make as a father to raise that child?
If your not willing to commit to your partner like that; then masturbate, use all the forms of contraception at once, (triple bag it if necessary) or abstain until you want that family.
Do not ever expect that your partner is solely responsible for the contraception.
Although vasectomy is an option, like tying tubes, it can fail as well.
And finally, condoms do in fact expire which could make them more prone to break while in activity.
