Shame on you, http://whythefuckshouldiuseec.tumblr.com/, for this incredibly disrespectful attempt to cater your message to young folks. I’m not even sure what it is exactly that you are trying to attempt with this tumblr, to be honest. BUT I will be damned if Ima just sit here and keep clickin’ on the insults, generalizations and fucked-up stereotypes you are propagating about young people with vaginas (like me) who need access to emergency contraception. I will not be likin’ on this on my fb and if I did have a twitter I would sure as hell not be tweetin on this shit either, but I am gonna give you a lil feedback before I start dinner.
The Top Six Insulting Fucking Reasons Why NARAL/NIRH Thinks You Should Use EC:
1) Because if you don’t remember his last name, you probably didn’t remember to use a fucking condom.
2) In the sober light of day, you don’t actually want to have his fucking children.
Newsflash: we ARE NOT all fucking people who use masculine pronouns and we ARE NOT all fucking when we are drunk and we STILL need access to emergency contraception. Those of us who have fucked / do fuck male-bodied folks DO NOT appreciate you portraying us as drunken sluts either!
3) Getting pregnant after you didn’t even get off would be the fucking cherry on top.
Young folks all over this country are not only educating their peers and their communities about the importance of consent, but also advocating for sex positivity and healthy communication between partners OF ALL GENDER IDENTITIES AND SEXES when it comes to pleasure so please don’t assume that we haven’t figured out how / aren’t working on communicating with our partners about getting off.
4) It’s more effective than your other plan, which is watching a fucking Top Chef marathon.
Right, we all spend our spare time watching reality television, not organizing our communities for social justice or using our voices to speak up when people are trying to speak for us or speak as if they understand our lived experiences.
5) You’ve spent 40 dollars on a lot stupider fucking shit before.
Yes, because nothing says we support young folks like mocking our financial literacy and making assumptions about our class status.
6) Women haven’t always had access to emergency contraception – be a fucking feminist already.
I am about as radical of a feminist as they come homies, but DAMN, every time I see another national organization that is consistently credited (falsely) with representing “the feminist movement” in this country come up with some jive-ass-backward campaign to appeal to young folks that actually serves only to misrepresent our experiences and mock us as sexual beings, I get really fucking pissed off.
So listen up: I am ALL about backin’ up your bc with some ec, okaaaay, BUT the end does not in any way, shape or form justify the means. Do not think that portraying us as flippant, self-centered and irresponsible is any sort of way to relay a message to us or encourage us to retweet/post/share some bullshit site. We are much smarter, wittier and better at using f-words than you are.
You can and SHOULD be doing so much better than this.
