Extremely Absurd (Left field Topics)

Plan B - A No Sell To Men? Huh?

Okay, so I'm on the train on my way back from the city when I decided to read the Metro newspaper. As I was reading, I came across an article about a New Jersey man who was denied Plan B because of his gender. To read the full article click here.  According to the article, he went to Rite Aid and was told by two workers that they couldn't sell him the contraceptive because he was a man. It was at that moment I chose to put on my 'You got to be kidding me' face.

I was even more shocked to learn that in March of this year, states like Georgia and Alabama refuse to sell it to men. For me personally, I admit that I practice abstinence, but I just thought this was completely absurd.

My issue here is that, men can buy condoms, lubricants and even tampons for their significant others, but they can't buy an over the counter contraceptive? Come on, get real! Sure you can use condoms or abstain from having sex, but you have to understand that some couples prefer to have an sex without a condom. I think it's a shame that some people equate Plan B as a form of abortion, but I guess you are entitled to your own opinion. However, I believe you overstep your boundaries when you try to enforce your beliefs and lifestyle onto others.

I am just glad that this gentleman who was only trying to make things a little easier on his girlfriend who was too busy to buy it herself was able to purchase it at another pharmacy. However, he shouldn't have to. I don't understand what is wrong with the world today sometimes. It seems that most people are so concerned with what goes on in someone else's home to the point that they try to force rules and regulations into individuals homes. Come people, wake up already!

Scandal Season 7 Review...the deconstruction of Olivia Pope

Olivia Pope portrayed by Kerry Washington. Hi friends, I know it has been some time since I covered Scandal and I apologize. I have been watching multiple shows all at once, so it has been hard for me to get my reviews together. With that being said, I have a major gripe with the seventh and last season of Scandal. I want to start off by saying..."Where is Olivia and what the hell happened to her?!" As a viewer of the show since its first season, I have seen a lot of changes happen. From the departure of OPA alum Stephen at the end of season 1, Columbus Short's publicized departure from the show at the end of season 3, the death of James (which makes me still hate Jake) and so on. But this season has Liv as the head of B613 (Command) and she is quickly becoming the stuff that nightmares are made of. Liv has now taken to tactics that her father, Rowan would do when he was the head of the organization. But seriously, what happened to the lady in the white hat? Wher…

#30 Day Shipping Challenge: Day 2: What was your first ship?

Over the years, I have been fans of many ships. But, no ship has got me in my feelings as much as Buffy and Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Angel). Buffy and Angel was my first ever ship. From the moment that they meet outside the Bronze to the moment after the fight with the mayor, Angel and Buff stare at each other from a distance as he turns to leave (Angel goes off to L.A. to have his spin-off series.) The ‘Bangel’ ship was the first tv couple that I had ever written fanfiction on. I don’t know, at 16 years old, they were thee ‘it’ couple...despite the fact that he was a 200 something year old vampire and she was a teenage girl groomed to be the Slayer (on paper this pairing is sooo not legal). But their relationship made for such interesting drama. Especially, after Angel turns into Angelus (Angel without a soul) after he and Buffy consummate their relationship. Things are never the same with these two, especially when Angelus begins to torture Buffy and the Scooby Ga…
