Arthur Rackham (19 September 1867 – 6 September 1939)

I wrote my final blog on the American presidential election and will be posting it after I send the News.  There is more to say about the “Noble Savage” and other topics.

The article I will post I about planned parenthood.  I am making the point that there is hypocrisy in the attitude of Republicans.  If a weathy person gets sicks, he or she can afford treatment and medication.  Moreover, a wealthy woman can manage if and when she will have a child.  She can buy birth control and she can buy an abortion.   Moreover, she can also afford children and can hire help in caring for them.

But my post lacks an important paragraph which would have to do with a woman’s right to say “no” to unprotected sexual intercourse.  There is nothing wrong with a woman saying “no,” until she is ready to have a child.  In fact, there are still women who say “no” until they have found a husband or are in a stable and permanent relationship.  If a man cannot understand a woman’s wish to wait, it may well be prudent to let him go.  Do not listen to such arguments as the classic you-don’t-love-me-if-you-wont…  In other words, do not let a man bully (that word again!) you into sexual intercourse.  Walk away as fast as you can and do not look back.
