For some people, there is a huge difference between birth control and contraception. HUGE difference, some people are fine with barrier methods of birth control but have a problem with contraception, it's not all the same thing.

Should your employer get to decide what works for you? Probably not, but then, you also have choices. Not all my medications are covered, so i have to chose, a different prescription, or pay out of pocket ( which is expensive and frustrating but it's what i have to do)

Let's be clear, do i think that the SCOTUS ruling is wrong. Very wrong. but they did not exclude all birth control, if you are an employer and you have to provide food for your employees, should you have to provide food that is against your religious beliefs? 

nothing is ever black and white, which is why life is so complicated and uncomfortable much of the time.

You know how i know rape culture is a thing? Because a staggering percentage of teenage boys do not know what rape is. They think 'no' is an invitation to try harder. Because married women are not told that they CAN say no to their husbands. Because we tell teenage boys that they are not responsible for their thoughts or actions if their fellow students wear shorts that are too short, or because their bra strap is visible.

We need to acknowledge that there is a problem, and understand that our sons cannot learn about respecting women and their right to say not if we don't talk to them about it.
