If something is "done correctly," as you describe it, why should there be any "consequences" for it? For that matter, why do you feel the need to ascribe consequences to sex when it's done simply for pleasure?
He doesn't have to "ascribe" consequences to sex. Pregnancy is the natural and often inevitable result if you don't take precautions to prevent it. He's saying that people who have sex without protection shouldn't be free from the natural consequence of that sex, which is pregnancy. It doesn't strike me as a controversial stance at all. If you want to have sex for fun, either take precautions to prevent pregnancy or be prepared to deal with the natural result.

Remember that @tabzer 's post was made in reply to the organ donation analogy. I don't think he's accusing women of deliberately having sex without protection so they can get abortions, because as anyone who knows anything about abortions is aware... they're not something you get "for fun".

It should strike you as controversial, because in a lot of parts of the US they don't teach teenagers about contraceptives. They only teach abstinence, and that obviously doesn't work well at all.

Correct. Since "parents know best" schools in states like Kentucky don't even feature Sex Ed. And kentucky features some of the highest abortion rates.

These days, I suspect kids learn about sex on the Internet long before any sex ed happens in schools that bother to teach it.

Also, isn't this thread about adults? Even in states that allow abortion, don't minors need parental permission to get one? Permission is usually required to undergo significant medical procedures, AFAIK.

And as we all know, the Internet is a perfectly safe environment with age appropriate filters and content verification innit.

Teens can be adults too, if only legally.

This language is extremely troubling. Are you looking with enjoyment at the idea of punishing women because they dare enjoying sex?

It's not prudish, it's mysoginist.

These are your responses to my claim that pregnancy is an expected outcome of sex. Literally stupid.

It is a consequence to those who'd see pregnancy as an equivalency of being forced to donate an organ-- unless you like being forced to donate organs and are advocating for that.

No, these are my responses to your abominable language.

Being able to read and write is an acquired taste.

So... you think my breakdown of the analogy is false because "the words are gross".
I didn't say a single thing about that, are you on drugs? Or sick?
I'm not here to make you feel good,
You don't make anyone feel good, which is why your partner seeks solace elsewhere. Also thank you for once again derailing the thread into a flame fest, it's clearly in your DNA to be as uncivil as possible. In addition to your other glaring flaws.
I have yet to see you make good on your claim of "thinking critically"
Perhaps you need spectacles, or a rewiring of your synapses. Probably both.

Wow this is dumb even by right-wing conspo standards. They didn't need to know the leak was coming because everyone's known for a long time that SCOTUS' decision on the matter would be coming soon, and Trump appointed three unqualified nutjobs to the court. For anyone paying attention, the assumption has always been that they'd overturn Roe v Wade despite promises made under oath to the contrary.

You either agree with my statement and dislike the language, or disagree with my statement because you dislike the language. Which is it? "You're a cuck" is not an argument. Pretending that you are privy to my sexual relationships just makes you a pervert.

It does feel mostly like an "I hate women..." type of thing, but the other half of that sentence is usually "...because they aren't having sex with me specifically." Only reason I can think of for getting pissed off over other people having sex strictly for pleasure.
It has nothing to do with hating women or casual sex. It's about an analogy that doesn't work. Considering that you've already stated that the end justifies the means in regards to political matters, it shouldn't be all that surprising that you'd resort to projection in lieu of an actual argument.

Would you have people believe that you have sex, a baseless claim, so my argument is to be discredited?

fetuses are babies.
No, they aren't. Please use the correct scientific term.

Just because you say that, doesn't mean it's true.

A lot of murderers claim they did it because they love the person they murdered. Which is clearly not true.

All you can say is you think you don't hate women. Your actions will betray you though.
