I’m a clinically depressed, unmedicated, uninsured, quite poor person who isn’t really enjoying life all that much, and who can’t stand babies.
Sex is not only one of the few forms of entertainment I can afford, it’s also one of those things that make my life enjoyable, fun, and worth living. And this of course means that I’m risking getting pregnant, and at this stage that would mean abortion (uninsured and poor, remember?). And for someone to tell me that this means I value “instant gratification” over life is to tell me that my own life isn’t worth shit. Because if I were only allowed to have sex under the condition that I didn’t abort, realistically would mean either
1)staying celibate, losing the remaining joy in life, losing the battle with depression, suicide
2)continuing to have sex, possibly getting pregnant, losing the battle with depression, suicide
so, a kindly “fuck you” to all the privileged kids out there who think poor, mentally ill people deserve punishment for finding some joy in life. [/rant]
