Your healthcare system is mean. And you should move to Scotland! If you hurry, you might arrive in time for all the country-wide celebrations. :)It is.

In the UK, birth control is a right. In Scotland, we don’t pay for prescriptions anymore but even when we did, the pill was free. I regularly get letters from my doctor like, “Want some birth control? We offer a wide variety. Come on down.”Ooooooooooooooooooooooh myyyyyyy gooooooooodddddddddd. I mean, that’s awesome. But I also remember having to fight to get on the pill when I was 14 ish because of severe menorrhagia. Literally fight. For half a year. My parents didn’t care but the doctors at my practice were all very reluctant to give me a prescription. Meanwhile I was bleeding freely for at least two straight weeks and severely anemic. And then there was the time my family switched insurances and the price for that same supply suddenly turned into $40 and I had to switch.

You don’t even get birth control for free in the US? Or am I misunderstanding? Obviously I can’t give insight insurance-wise but I know the pros and cons of the different types of birth control if that helps.Well, I think that if a person qualifies for it (the exception being condoms, those might be handed out for free at PP) through Planned Parenthood, they can get a limited supply for free. Other than that, no. Different insurances cover different things in different amounts. Mine for example (daily tablet) is mostly covered by my insurance. It costs around $10 for an 84 day supply. Not sure on other forms and their prices because I don’t use them.

Hello friends! I’m trying to help out a friend in a lurch but I am vastly inexperienced with this. She’s interested in going to a Planned Parenthood (closest one to her is two hours away, boo) to look into getting on the pill. I’m doing some research for her because she can’t right now (doesn’t want to be found looking this stuff up by her family) but I have NO IDEA how their insurance works (looks like it’s called UHPP or FPBP???)
So… any insight? She’s saying she’ll need either the UHPP or FPBP but isn’t sure what documents she needs to apply for it. She also can’t make a phone call for the same reason as above right this second.

PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE THIS.
This Thursday, Scotland votes for its independence.
The BBC is trying to report that Yes to Independence is losing. They’re using photos to imply our gatherings are tiny and insignificant instead of the many photos like those above. They’re reporting that an anti-independence march by the Orange Order (think the KKK with more British flags) was a peaceful pro-union family march. They have been caught editing clips to discredit our First Minister.
There is a protest outside BBC headquarters right now. They are claiming there are a maximum of 350 protesters.
Watch for yourself. There are far more people outside their offices right now and they are being ignored and misreported.
We need to be seen. The only way we’ve been able to disseminate accurate information has been through social media. The media we rely on to spread unbiased information is lying to us, trying to suppress us.
PLEASE SHARE. PLEASE TALK ABOUT THIS. WE NEED OUR VOICES TO BE HEARD.
this website is very american-centric. please, we need to be heard. please pay attention.
this is a whole country’s FUTURE.
Peggielene Bartels, A.K.A. King Peggy, is currently the King of Otuam, Ghana. She was chosen to be one of only three female kings in Ghana, and when she discovered that male chauvinists wanted her to only be a figurehead, she said: “They were treating me like I am a second-class citizen because I am a woman. I said, ‘Hell no, you’re not going to do this to a woman!’” When she encountered corruption and the threat of embezzlement to the royal funds, she declared “I’m going to squeeze their balls so hard their eyes pop!”
King Peggy has maintained her work in Ghana’s embassy in Washington, D.C. while making education affordable in Otuam, installing borehead wells to produce clean drinking water, enforcing incarceration laws to deal with domestic violence, replenishing the royal coffers by taxing Otuam’s fishing industry to improve life in the village, and appointing three women to her council.
“Nobody should tell you, ‘You’re a woman, you can’t do it,’” she insists. “You can do it. Be ready to accept it when the calling comes.”
Quoted from the Spring/Summer 2012 issue of Ms. Magazine.
What a beautiful badass woman.
King Peggy has been on my blog before but this is my goddamn blog and I will have King Peggy on here twice if I want.
MORE FEMALE KINGS.
Always reblog King Peggy, who is on my dash far less than she should be. Did you know she has written a book about her life? It is great, and you should all get right on that if you haven’t already.
Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part IV)
And now for the side show… the STL County Council/police fail at being empathetic, and tone deaf white people are tone deaf (and white). #staywoke #farfromover
