In the last couple of days, I noticed a small handful of tweets about a Georgetown girl and sex (here's a couple of them). It didn't take long before I was wondering the usual things, like who was this Georgetown girl and what was this sex in question being discussed about (you know, the usual harmless questions), and soon, I'm looking at this post at Hot Air, where a Georgetown student and activist testified before Congress on the need for women to have insurance cover the cost of contraceptives.
According to this student/activist, female students at Georgetown are having to spend a lot of money out of their own pockets on birth control, and the Obama administration's contraceptive mandate would go a long way to alleviating the cost of getting the birth control so these female students can continue to have sex as often as they want and not worry about getting pregnant or contracting a disease. Would you like to say it or shall I? No matter, so here goes: Ohhhhh brother!
So far as I know, there's no rule at Georgetown University that requires female students to have sex on a particular basis, so there's actually another way they can save the over $3,000 said to be spent over a three-year period: Cut down on the sex. Sounds simple, doesn't it? If they're having sex three times a week, they can cut it down to two times a week, or once a week, or (lightbulb!) they could just stop having sex altogether! Now that's $3,000 which'll stay in their pockets, and they really wouldn't have to worry about getting pregnant or contracting an unsightly disease. Sounds like a win-win to me, don't you think?
Do I expect people like this student/activist to pay attention to my suggestions? Nope. Unfortunately, people like her are more concerned about being able to continue engaging in sexual activity without any strings attached and with as few hindrances as possible, like having to pay for their own birth control; in other words, they don't want to accept personal responsibility for their actions. It's time she and others like her started growing up.
