    I mean, "99 percent of American women are using it", huh?

    I've slept with somewhere in the neighborhood of 40 women (hate that I have to give numbers, but work with me). Of that number, 4 were taking the pill when I first slept with them. Another 4 started taking the pill at some point in time while we were dating (including my wife who stopped before we had kids). At least six were neither on the pill and refused to let me wear a condom, is Joan seriously counting russian roulette, err, the rhythm method and pulling out in the 99%?

    Teh stoopidTM, it hurts. Buy smart, union-printed, USA-made, signs, stickers, swag for everyone: Get your We are the 99% Yard Sign.

    •  Yes, I have a problem with that number as well (0+ / 0-)

      99% of American women are using birth control?

      Um I think not. If 99% of, well, let's limit it to sexually active women of childbearing age who have a male sexual partner, were using birth control, there would be a baby crash of huge magnitude.

      Nobody is saying that all women use it.
