Inspired by those lovely condoms, I decided to make a birth control polyvore.
I tried to present as many contraceptive forms as possible; however, I couldn’t figure out how to represent the 2-days method or the withdrawal method so neither of those are here. I don’t think I missed out anything else! Abstinence is represented by the blue cross over the beige circle, and hopefully it’s clear that the scalpel represents sterilisation (but know that cutting things is not the only way to undergo sterilisation). Also, obviously I didn’t put every version of every cap and pill there is on the market. That would be a bit much!
ETA: Feel free to ask me about any of these methods!
Our signs from the protest today!
Some people took pictures of the words on my topless lovelyness but none taken by me. Hopefully I find them floating around the internet…
At a recent protest in favor of reproductive rights in Richmond VA, protesters assembled on the Virginia Capitol’s steps. Police, many in riot gear, demanded that they disperse or be arrested. 33 people refused to leave the steps, and were arrested.

Aaah fucking big pharma. It’s about time we have a viable birth control method that men can employ (other than condoms), but noooo let’s not fund this valuable research because it just doesn’t make us enough money…
