I’m Pro Choice

Yep. You read that right.

I'm pro choice.

In fact, I'm all about choice. I think everybody ought to have the freedom to choose for themselves what they do and how they do it, as long as those choices do not negatively impact those around them.

And I think most women would agree with me.

They get to choose whether to have sex or not. They get to choose who to have sex with. They get to choose which acts they will perform. They get to choose when they will have sex.

And I'm all for it. Sex is a choice.

That being the case, then why in the wide wide world of sports should I have to pay for them to have sex?

Women are so strongly against men paying for sex, but they want us to pay for them to have sex?

I don't get it.

Look, I get that you want free contraception. You want to have sex without strings, without guilt, and without consequences. I get it; I really do. That's been the male fantasy for centuries.

But here's the deal. If you want it, great; go out and get it. But don't expect me to pony up for the rubbers/pills/IUDs/Norplants etc.

Unless it is my penis entering your vagina, I'm not responsible for any potential outcomes.

Your choice means your responsibility. If you choose to have sex with a guy who refuses to use a condom, then it is your responsibility to protect yourself. It is not my responsibility to run you down to the drugstore and pay for your birth control.

This is not a war on women; I happen to like women. A lot. My wife is a woman. I know that seems old fashioned in this day of gay marriage, open marriage, and gender transference procedures, but hey, I'm a sucker for traditionalism.

And my wife is not the only woman in my life. My mother is a woman, as is my sister, and my daughters, and I love them all very much.

I'm not at war with them, nor do I want to oppress them.

I just don't think it is my responsibility to fork over $20 so Sheila down the street can hang with the frat boys on the Strip without worrying about potential consequences.

If she chooses to have sex, then it is her responsibility to choose responsibly, and that means choosing a partner who will wear a condom.

After all, the pill doesn't protect against STD's.

If she can't make a responsible choice, then maybe, just maybe, she shouldn't be choosing to have sex.

Ya think?
