Welcome To The Bitchery

ETA VENTING: Main Page: It's final: The AP reports enough claimants have agreed, and Merck will settle with thousands of women over allegations about the safety of NuvaRing. The pharma giant will shell out $100 million, but (according to earlier reports) admitted no fault and says there's "substantial" evidence the contraceptive is safe.

What the fuckety fuck fuck fuck , MEN/SCIENCE? It's been 45 fucking years since easily accessible birth control for women has been a fucking thing. I got an IUD in 1972, a Lippes Loop, which was painful as hell and I got pregnant despite it (and had the most awesome son in the world). WHY IS IT SUCH A THING THAT WOMEN CANNOT MASTER THEIR REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM WITHOUT RISKING CANCER, INFERTILITY, OR DEATH??????? Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck. And fuck.

ETA: Fuck you motherfuckers who don't fucking give a shit about women and their bodies. You fucking motherfuckers. God damn it. You make me so fucking angry.

There, I think I feel a little better. I just had to get it out. Maybe a little walk will help.


P.S. Where is my jet pack? Isn't this the fucking future? Why don't we have safe birth control and jet packs? What the hell?
