No one is keeping you from buying birth control on your own. Your boss isn't obligated to buy your things for you. Access to contraceptives are not a human right. We live in a society where we feel obligated to everything, when the truth is, we are not.
So you’re very misguided & wrong. There’s also this dangerous and pervasive need to overgeneralize important critiques on systemic restrictions of access as “these greedy ignoramuses just want handouts” which is a very classed and raced argument.
No one’s boss is obligated to buy things for them, so that very line and tangent of reasoning is flawed at best (ignorantly confrontational for no reason at worst). Employment provided healthcare has been established as a national priority and key factor to public and individual welfare. Part of healthcare, WHETHER WE LIKE IT OR NOT, is reproductive and sexual health. Allowing corporations, who otherwise not be allowed to, to excercise their privilege and power to restrict reproductive healthcare is limiting access to vital healthcare options to a subset of already marginalized groups.
so yeah you can fly your flag all day long but that is how it is
You guys are fed a lot of cynicism every day, but this country has always been built both through individual initiative and a sense of common purpose.
Don’t get cynical. Guard against cynicism. The truth of the matter is that for all the challenges we face, all the problems that we have, if you had to choose any time in human history to be born, you’d choose this time.
Terrible things happen around the world every single day, but the trend lines of progress are unmistakable.
