My DH's cousin posted this status today on FB:
I'm asking y'all because I don't use them but it's time because I don't want to be a dad right now!! All my friends are having kids and I don't want one right now!! So girls or guys what are the best condoms out there!! Girls can respond because y'all know how it is!!!
I'm glad he actually wants to prevent, but aside from this being creepy to see on facebook, it just made me cringe that "all [his] friends are having kids". Why are these little pricks who are young and naive and sleeping around sooooo fucking fertile and my DH and I have been throwing a shit ton of money at doctors for the past 2 years, doing everything under the sun, and still haven't gotten pregnant???
I also had this thought: "he just ASSUMES that if he has unprotected sex he's going to get a girl knocked up so easily just because all his friends are. Yeah, 2 years ago I had those same feelings that it wouldn't be that difficult to get pregnant...after all, everyone was popping up pregnant." I realize that it's a stupid thought because it's very normal for someone who's not ready for children to do everything possible to prevent a pregnancy....but because of my stupid ass infertility, this was one of the thoughts that crossed my mind and I wanted to share just how ridiculous this crap has got me thinking now.
I know this is just the same story as we always see, and the same complaints we all have about how messed up the world is....but I had to post and get that off my chest.
