So the other day, I have this girl come on for the morning after pill, which is cool, like I don't have any moral objections to supplying it at all. The girl's not a local, kind of a heavy.... German accent? Some sort of nordic something something country. So basically the conversation goes like this:|
Girl: I shouldn't have been so stupid. It was an irresponsible thing to do.
Me: Well, sometimes mistakes happen, I wouldn't beat yourself up about it. It's ok.
Girl: The morning after pill shouldn't be so easy to get
Me (in my head): Well, I can make it harder for you, just give that back and walk out that door.
Me (out loud): Really, it's fine. Don't worry about it. It happens to girls sometimes.
Girl: Maybe in Australia *walks out with her medication*
Like ok, I get that you are annoyed that you had sex without a condom. It's true it is stupid and irresponsible, and condoms don't just protect against pregnancy, but also STDs. All valid points, but in no way should you complain about the morning after pill being so easy to get while reaping the benefits of how easy it is go get the pill. Additionally, there is no place in trying to slut shame Australia because we allow timely access to the pill, which I'm almost entirely sure most Western countries do now anyway. I just, my eyebrows basically touched the sky with how high they climbed. I have never heard anyone complain about how easy it is to get a medication before. What the fuck. Yes, yay condoms and safe sex. I love safe sex! I gave endless lectures to my shop girls on the greatness of safe sex. I just don't understand how someone could be like 'ALL YOU BITCHES ARE SLUTS, ALSO THANKS FOR THE MORNING AFTER PILL, BUT NOT ACTUALLY, I MEAN, THAT WAS WAY TOO EASY, SHOULDN'T I LIKE, PROVE THAT I'M REPENTANT AND SHIT AND THAT IT'S ALL MY FAULT FOR HAVING SEX WITHOUT A CONDOM, WHEN IN REALITY THERE IS NO SHAME AND ALSO, IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO BUT WHATEVER.'
