Last One For The Day.

And I'm resisting the urge to troll someone on The Book Of Faces who thinks it's a good idea to require people(read: women) on unemployment benefits to take contraceptives. Mostly because I'll probably come across as hysterical and angry, because I am. Moreso because the person making the post is taking the 'interesting idea what do people think?' ground.

I wasn't aware that the unemployed in our society were breeding like the wanton, oversexed rabbits that they apparently are. (And I really must find that link to research that shows the most effective way of reducing population growth is providing paid work for women. The one about sexual habits of different classes might also be handy: it's the middle and upper classes that do the most rooting).

Astonishing how the same old inaccurate beliefs keep popping back up. Controlling the poor by imposing punitive measures that don't help. Well, they do help in that they intrude on bodily autonomy and thus prevent people from fighting back. Oppressed people need to be intruded upon, as they have a nasty habit of fomenting rebellion.

Having a baby as a revolutionary act. Mary Mother Of Jesus, come on down!

To think I thought children were an advantage to society as a whole.

Exactly. It all depends who you're trying to 'help'...

Something like that would make ME hysterical and angry as well. Lord, save us from the saviours of the land and the budget! We have some very much like that here also.

The best way to fight against overpopulation is making contraceptives available and affordable as a piece of bread.
