The War on Women: The Economy

One of the most confusing points conservatives make regarding women’s rights in The United States is the one of cost. The idea that it is too costly to make birth control easily accessible or free is convoluted. A responsible woman who knows using protection is a better alternative to unwanted pregnancy should be denied birth control just because she can’t afford it? Sex is a natural part of being human. By their 19th birthday, seven in ten female and male teens have had intercourse....more

The War on Women: Religion

I live in a country that I appreciate because we are allowed some freedoms many countries are not. In my country, women without means have access to birth control.

Casual Sex: Some Male Perspective

As promised, this installment of Casual Sex is written by my very good friend, Doug (aka Dark Water) at diaryofadougfiend.  I wanted a man’s perspective on the role of sex in relationship.  I felt it was important to include a male voice and this is one male voice I greatly respect and relate to.  He did an amazing job and I am so thankful to him for taking some time to offer his own perspective.  I’ll let Doug take it from here....more
