Can we stop pretending this is okay?
19 yr old Boy: I’m scared of having children can I get a vasectomy?
Society: Yeah! Its so easy to get one too!
19 yr old Girl: I legitimately suffer from bad mental health issues that could kill me if i was ever forced to bear a child because I’d have to go off my medication for 9 months, I have a physical disability that I do not want to pass on, and I have bleeding disorders that often put my life in jeopardy. Can I get a hysterectomy?
Society: FUCK NO!!!!!!!! YOURE TOO YOUNG YOU HAVE TO KEEP BLEEDING AND HURTING EVEN IF YOU NEVER WANT KIDS ALSO WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU YOU NEED TO HAVE BABIES OR ELSE YOURE A FAILURE AS A WOMAN!!!!!
I’m seriously fucking sick of seeing this attitude, and especially from other women too. Even on support forums for women who want or have had hysterectomies, they scold young women and feed them the fucking disgusting “You’ll change your mind, you must accept your duty as a walking incubator” bullshit. I’m tired of being quiet about this shit, I’m honestly fucking furious about this and I want it to be addressed by our society NOW.
As some of our own followers have shared, this isnt just something prevalent in random citizens. Actual doctors will refuse to do these types of procedures on adult women/those able to bear children for these same reasons.
