My argument wasn’t with the ethics of what she is doing but with the classist undertones in the article. The fact that she uses condoms with holes is not even given too much attention when, and I agree with you, should be at the center of the topic. Instead, the focus is one of “lose morals” (i.e. drunk woman, sperm hunter, etc.). They could have used the chance to discuss the prohibitively expensive insemination treatments or why women might feel this “urge to reproduce” but instead, she is made an example to slut shame.

Perhaps I wasn’t clear enough, but my point is one of rhetoric more so than of subject at hand.

For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you.  Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
