My favorite thing about tumblr is following peoples personal storylines. Like when somebody I follow finally goes on a date with the person they like or comes out to their best friend or finishes a huge homework assignment I am literally on the couch pumping my fist and being really happy for them
According to the Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case, discriminating against women isn’t discrimination.
That’s because erectile disfunction is a MEDICAL CONDITION, and not wanting kids is not.
Oh man they’re all screaming oppression now. I honestly have no opinion on this case but the reactions from the left amuse me.
Birth control is used for MANY medical conditions. Here, check this out
Seriously, talk to any medical doctor and ask them what birth control can be used for. Please do so. I have had a friend that needed birth control because her ovaries were so messed up and it was so painful (no I do not remember the name of the disease), but she couldn’t afford it and had to deal with that shit.
Are you talking about endometriosis? That’s the one I hear most about. Also, according to this the pill is NOT affected by the ruling. The only contraceptive methods that will be affected are IUD, Plan B, and Ella. Plan B and Ella are both emergency contraceptives and the IUD is (if I’m remembering correctly) a hormone based method of birth control that you put in your uterus.
None of those are particularly helpful in helping with health conditions relating to the reproductive system to my knowledge.
Thank Goddess the medical birth control is still allowed. I wish that nothing was restricted, but keeping someone from necessary medicine because its other purpose includes stopping pregnancy is just morally wrong and is just terrible in my opinion. Those that mess with necessary medications… eurgh, I can’t handle those people!

The only thing that upsets me about the ruling is the fact that they banned those three specifically because they caused abortions. That’s totally false.
fuckyeahsexeducation has an incredible amount of resources concerning sexual health as a whole and also different kinds of birth control. They’ll be able to properly explain the functions of each and how exactly they work.
Reblogging this for two reasons, one for pointing out that many sex related medications and procedures are still being covered by places like Hobby Lobby like vasectomies and sexual enhancement drugs. The second is to just echo that the no form of birth control or the morning after pill can be used to cause abortions! “Birth control” is kind of a misnomer. It doesn’t control birth, it doesn’t keep birth from happening, it keeps conception from happening. Contraception is a lot more accurate term. It keeps a person from ovulating or neutralizes the sperm in the case of the copper IUD. This keeps fertilization from occurring. It can also make the vagina and uterus inhospitable to sperm. Some forms of birth control may also keep the uterine lining thin which may make it so even if a fertilized egg does occur it wont implant. However, this can happen even if you aren’t on birth control and is NOT an abortion or a miscarriage. For it to be a miscarriage or abortion the fertilized egg must stick to the uterine lining and begin to grow to even form anything close to being a fetus.
Don’t believe me? Hey here’s an article by a catholic website explaining it in detail: http://ncronline.org/blogs/grace-margins/what-abortifacient-and-what-it-isnt
The Full Moon of July will be a Super Moon. This is when the Moon can appear up to 5 times bigger than normal. It not only looks beautiful but has many effects on Earth too, the tidal force is up to 18% greater than normal and it also has an effect on animals and wildlife especially birds, wolves and ocean life.
“A super moon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth." neat!
I panicked trying to think of a gender neutral thing to call my superior and all I could come up with In the moment was “your grace”
