Hate to say I told you so
Nah, I love it. As I figured, the ad for Plan B in Tuesday's Daily Texan would generate at least one outraged letter from a male conservo-virgin. He didn't go so far as accuse the Texan of trying to screw his chances at marriage, but he does come very, very close.
I expect to find advertisements in the paper; even more than usual considering the budget cuts. But the flyer found inside my Texan as I opened it flabbergasted me: a flyer that advertised not just a day-after pill, but a THREE day-after pill!
Who knew that the sperm could slosh around in there for three days? You ruined this young man's masturbation fantasies for at least a week, oral contraceptive manufacturers.
Putting aside my Catholic upbringing and my hokey religious beliefs that my secular generation ignores, what does this publication tell the students?
If I remember correctly, it said that if your condom breaks, you can use this pill for back-up. But apparently, I misread the words, "I used a condom, but it broke."
That if, in the "heat of the moment," you forget to practice safe sex, it's OK because you have a "second chance?"
His idea of what people do in bed is vastly different from mine. I can see it now--a nubile co-ed in the arms of a hunky frat boy on a Friday night.
"Oh honey, let's forget the condom tonight. On Monday, I can go just wait in line for 3 hours at Planned Parenthood to get a prescription for Plan B, drive over to Walgreen's and get it filled and then significantly reduce my chances of getting pregnant, even though I still may." Mmmm....sexy.
Or, if you and your partner have the forethought to be cautious but it fails, there is still a way out?
How else do you get sexy co-eds to marry you?! The Daily Texan is cruel, I tell you, cruel!
The allure of unprotected sex has increased because now a lady can wait three whole days before she takes her "second chance."
You only have one chance to escape! (Someone please tell him that it's just as likely, if not more, than the end result is a child support payment and not a wedding band.)
A woman can be careless, take her time for two days, take care of her important tasks and then receive her "second chance" at her convenience.
If you're going to weasel out of a lifetime of regret, you should at least feel sorry about it, selfish bitches. That and quit rolling your eyes when you turn down my offer to buy you a drink.
It is not appropriate for the largest written media on a college campus (where STDs run rampant) to align itself with something that causes the rise in unprotected sex and thus STDs. Where is the handout publicizing the extremely simple birth control method (abstinence) that also protects against STDs and is 100-percent guaranteed?
God, it's like fish in a barrel. I mean, he might as well write, "If I'm not getting any, no one is getting any!"
I am glad that my parents, as I am sure you are about your parents, chose not to take their "second chance."
They got their second chance when they divorced when I was 9, and no, I don't particularly resent them for it. Sorry.
