Don’t Just Lie There and Take It
From pelvic exams to birth control, to the way most women have been coerced into giving birth, women have been taking it lying down for a long time.
The recent furor with the abortion debate brings this concept to light.
To be clear, I disagree with these bans. And I’m not saying that people shouldn’t be doing whatever they can to stop them.
But a part of me also doesn’t care.
Because I’m not reliant on a bunch of old white guys to give me permission on what I can and can’t do with my body, my sexuality and my reproductive organs.
There has been a systematic effort over the past century to remove the knowledge and care of women’s bodies, particularly their reproductive organs, OUT of the hands of women and midwives and INTO the hands and wallets of doctors and hospitals.
I have existed outside of this system for decades. I don’t buy into ANY of it.
I don’t buy into allopathic medicine and its snake oil suggestions like lifelong drugs and surgery.
So what does the opposite of that look like?
What does it look like when you take the reins back and instead of just lying there and taking it, you climb on top and cowgirl that thing all the way home?
