When men fire blanks, and women are all dried up.......

  Poll question. What do you think about it? I'll admit that I thought about it and I had a hard time deciding if it was right to expect one sex over the other to undergo sterilization procedures, or if they both should. I voted both, but I really couldn't decide.

  I suppose in the interest of fairness if they come to a mutual agreement that they never want children/more children,


Wait, nevermind, in the middle of typing it out I became unsure again. Sorry

  It's a less invasive proceedure for the male. It can also be reversed if a change of heart is made down the road (so I've heard). I voted for the male to have it done, but that's easy to do behind a keyboard. The thought of a knife near my boys does give me the heebie jeebies.

  I voted for the guy.
It seems kind of crazy to me to tell a woman who has recently given birth that now she has to go back to the hospital to be cut open.

Some people may say I'm being unfair when i say this, but from my own point of view:

If I have to be on the pill for years (with its side effects), go through pregnancy and giving birth, he can go get a vasectomy at the end of it all. Only seems fair.

And along with what addi said: its less invasive, and its reversible.

  Nah, that doesn't seem unfair.

If it's less procedure for a man is less invasive and reversible I'd say the man, then.

Fixed for increased comprehensibility.

  I wasn't willing to say one way or another without knowing the medical implications of each precedure, but if what Addison says is correct then I would have to say male as well.

  What a timely topic!

I've been with my ladyfriend for a few months now, and in my constant struggle to ensure that I never bring children into this world (it would so cruel, and I'm terribly unlikely to be able to be a good father), I am very much considering getting myself fixed.

I have an unnatural obsession with this, I think. I am very frightened with the idea of having responsibility thrust upon me as such. I really just want to keep my options open as much as possible.

Very really considering getting it done, even at the age I'm at (21).

  Male for sure. Reversible in some cases, and it only requires a quick trip to the doctor. Compare that with the invasive female procedure, that carries with it far greater medical risks. Plus, if a woman wants to reverse her procedure, she has to undergo the same risks. So, though the male procedure is only sometimes reversible, the male should be the one to undergo the procedure.

  I believe with women it can be reversed to, I'm actually almost certain of it.



You can all do what you want, my balls aren't getting disconnected.

Run boys!

It has been done, but with microsurgery and it's very invasive. Overall, the procedure for women is much more serious than the procedure for men.


(I'm trying not to get to militant with this one, trying hard. I have a very strong reaction to this whole issue for some reason...I guess it's somehow related to my stance on abortion...men legislating about my body. Oooh, it gives me this creepy feeling inside.)

I applaude you, crim, for thinking responsibly about your future. Too many people don't.
I think if I was still back in my twenties I'd think seriously about it if I wasn't planning on having any kids. In the passion of the moment sometimes it's really hard (pardon the pun) to stop and take the necessary precautions if your partner isn't protected...and don't even get me started on using a damn condom..it's like having a shot of novacain directly into your johnson.."goodbye feeling!".

One of my good buds had it done, and in a candid conversation (musta been after margaritas) he told me the sensations were just the same as before he went under the knife, but now he no longer has to worry about fertilizing the little free range egg the boys might swim to. His wife likes the fact that she doesn't have to deal with the side effects of contraceptive pills too.

  Well I read the question and I couldn't decide, I mean the couple could change their mind or split up. I voted both, but I would realy liked to have had the option to say neither. They could always just use some form of bith control.

  While it is reversable for women, it is more evasive, more complicated, more complex, and has more side effects in addition to just "getting your tubes tied". That "area" and its complex hormone production is extremely tempermental and even more sensative to infection.
A vascectomy is not a microsurgery and a little medically complicated then disconnecting a plug.

  I picked men as well for all the reasons listed above.

But an interesting peice of info..

I was talking to my anatomy teacher about this and apparently in some cases the boys snipped tubey can heal back together and people get babies. You're never safe from babies. Never.

So it seems. I'm just not accustomed to finding posts dedicated to laughs about things I say.
