i wrote earlier about how i use birth control for health purposes and not necessarily to prevent pregnancy as an attempt to justify it. but then i realized that yeah, there are probably other people going through the same thing and it should be recognized but we shouldn’t have to explain why we use birth control pills. we shouldn’t have to justify it. if men can have vasectomies and viagra prescribed to them then i should be able to take a fucking pill no questions asked.
