Tori Spelling Can’t Afford To Get Her Husband A Vasectomy

  • Hands down, my favorite story of the day is Tori Spelling’s confession that she and husband Dean are too broke to get him a vasectomy. Really? “Beverly Hills, 90210″ is on SoapNet, like, 3-4 times a day. Surely she gets paid every time an episode airs. Snip snip! [The Stir]
  • OMG, you guys, Aaron Samuels from “Mean Girls,” aka actor Jonathan Bennett, teaches spin classes at FlyWheel in Los Angeles now. That’s so fetch. [Celebuzz]
  • Talk about an epic fail: this T.A. accidentally send her students nudie photos instead of their homework assignment. Whoops! [College Candy] Keep reading »

This essay was published with permission from Gender-Focus.

My spouse and I are seeking permanent birth control, and the entire process has been difficult. At this point, we are sick to death of unsolicited advice on the subject (Pro-tip: If someone you don’t know says they’re not judging you, they are judging you.) Everyone’s heart is in the right place, I can only assume. People think they are telling us new information that will keep us from making what they perceive to be a mistake. I get that they’re trying to help. But we continually find ourselves defending this very personal decision to total strangers. So to keep myself from screaming, I’m going to outline why the condescension disguised as concern is totally unfounded. Trust us. We’ve thought it through. Keep reading »

Hitched: Why My Husband Is Getting A Vasectomy

I’ve been walking around with a sketch of a uterus and cervix in my reporter’s notebook for several weeks now, courtesy of my gynecologist. She drew it while explaining to me how an IUD works. I keep it around both because I like it as a conversation piece and because when you write about ladyparts as much as I do, it’s actually quite useful as a reference tool at the office or, you know, the bar. Wherever.

But what I like best about my little IUD sketch is that I don’t need it, because my husband is getting a vasectomy. When it comes to long-term contraception that isn’t sterilization, vasectomies are the bee’s infertile knees. The benefits are many: I don’t have to live with a foreign body inside me (either of biological origin or one made of copper), condom breakage isn’t a constant concern, and neither do I have to rely on hormones or head back to my doctor’s office regularly for a Depo shot.

Meet Georgia Representative Yasmin Neal. She’s fed up with the government trying to legislate women’s reproductive rights, so she just introduced a bill into the general assembly that would ban Georgia men from having vasectomies. Sounds pretty crazy, right? Well, it is, but that’s the point. Neal’s bill is meant to protest anti-abortion legislation that attempts to interfere with a woman’s reproductive health. As Neal explains (with a totally straight face), “It is patently unfair that men can avoid unwanted fatherhood by presuming that their judgment over such matters is more valid than the judgment of the General Assembly, while women’s ability to decide is constantly up for debate throughout the United States.”  Keep reading »

[Dr. Phil's wife got pregnant unexpectedly at a time in his life when he was not ready to have children.] I was doing work in another city with a good friend of mine. He said, ‘The office closes at five – why don’t you come in and we’ll do your vasectomy?” He didn’t have a nurse there, so I actually assisted him by handing him the instruments. It’s painful when they kind of pull on it. He put me in the car with an ice pack, and I drove myself to the airport and flew home.”

Whoa. Just whoa. TMI alert! Dr. Phil gave himself a vasectomy! But don’t worry, ladies. He had it reversed. [Daily Mail UK]
