The Best Birth Control In The World Is For Men by Jon Clinkenbeard
If I were going to describe the perfect contraceptive, it would go something like this: no babies, no latex, no daily pill to remember, no hormones to interfere with mood or sex drive, no negative health effects whatsoever, and 100 percent effectiveness. The funny thing is, something like that currently exists.
The procedure called RISUG in India (reversible inhibition of sperm under guidance) takes about 15 minutes with a doctor, is effective after about three days, and lasts for 10 or more years…
Oh, and when you do decide you want those babies, it only takes one other injection of water and baking soda to flush out the gel, and within two to three months, you’ve got all your healthy sperm again.
The trouble is, most people don’t even know this exists. And if men only need one super-cheap shot every 10 years or more, that’s not something that gets big pharmaceutical companies all fired up, because they’ll make zero money on it (even if it might have the side benefit of, you know, destroying HIV).
can this replace the normal contraception methods we have pls
I’m just going to keep reblogging this until people start paying attention, because people aren’t.
Read the article, there’s a lot of good coming from this. Sign the petition for it too!
I like how sweden just decided one day that gender is fucking bullshit so they got a gender neutral pronoun and stopped separating boy clothes and girl clothes and have pictures of spiderman pushing a baby stroller in a toy magazine why isn’t every country like sweden

This illustration is a parody/mash-up of sorts that I (Megan Lara) created— I based it exactly on Mucha’s art nouveau pieces “The Cowslip" and "The Feather,” which I quite often see as a diptych. I have several different versions of this available as prints and things! I packed a ton of references into these pieces, some more subtle than others. :) I hope you enjoy it! I had a blast creating it. :)
The original version, with the exact layout based on Mucha’s pieces, can be found as a print on Redbubble.
The cropped version, which I think frames better than the original version, can be found on Society6 (currently has a promo for $5 off each item and free shipping!) as a print, mug, pillow, tote bag, etc!
The version I created for t-shirts (in order to get rid of the boxy design, I used several of Mucha’s flourishes to make it more aesthetically pleasing, and added text) is available as a shirt on Society6 ($5 off plus free shipping atm—also available on things other than shirts), Design By Humans and Redbubble (kid’s clothes available on Redbubble and Society6 btw!)
AND finally, signed prints available in my Etsy store. :)
I don’t think I’ll ever forget this day. I consider myself lucky and privileged to have filmed this myself, especially since characters are no longer allowed to go on rides. It was experiences like this that made the days magical. Psycho and Care Bear were also the best Hatter/Alice duo at the time which made it even better. I also love it because Storybook Land was my favorite attraction to work, I even worked with Maria for a time at that ride. Storybook was the one attraction where I felt at home, it holds so many wonderful memories.
I had NO idea it would blow up and become one of the most popular videos in my Youtube account. It was also about the time I started my hardcore shipping of Alice and Hatter, which led to my numerous fanart drawings as well as the “When Curiosity Met Insanity” comic. It was moments like the “I am NOT going to kiss the girl” that made me wanna draw more. Thanks Psycho, Care Bear, Spieling, and Maria for this awesome memory.
