This especially unbecoming/Inappropriate for obvious reasons.
And you further Failed to acknowledge - Again - that I Already said it was wrong in either case.
Had you not succumbed to personal grudge you might have seen that, because it made your comment off base and the otherwise strictly personal one it was.
EDIT: I see Tucker is still trying to turn Temporary Birth Control into permanent 'sterilization'.
Periodic Depo injections are NOT 'sterilization'... Obviously.

I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.
Tucker Case - Tard magnet.
You also seem to think I actually care enough about you to have a personal grudge. I don't. I could not care less about you personally. When you have to attack the person pointing out the flaws in your argument, you might stop and consider just how weak your point is.
And more, this from the anti-Semitic LA TImes.
Amid controversy, Israel issues new birth-control guidelines - Los Angeles Times
The ministry's new policy comes in response to a controversy exposed last month by local investigative journalist Gal Gabbay, who reported that Jewish Ethiopian women awaiting emigration to Israel in transit camps in Ethiopia were coaxed into the treatment with little medical explanation and led to understand this was a condition for moving to Israel.
Around 120,000 Jews from Ethiopian origin live in Israel; roughly a third of them are Israeli born. In 2010, the government decided to bring to Israel the 2,000 Jews remaining in the African country and close the transit camps currently run by the Jewish Agency For Israel by the end of this year.
Immigrant women told the reporter this was the standard practice in the transit camps run by Jewish and Israeli agencies in Ethiopia in the last decade. Many women continued the course of treatment in Israel, where a sharp decline in birth rate has been noted among the Ethiopian community over the past decade.
Depo-Provera, the brand name of a long-acting contraceptive injection, is a highly effective method of birth control but possible side effects include a decrease in bone density that puts women at increased risk for osteoporosis and fractures later on. That and other side effects are not immediately reversible, and returning to fertility can be a lengthy process. In addition, withdrawal symptoms can be acute.
Relatively few healthy women in Israel choose the injection without specific medical reasons.
The expose sparked claims of mistreatment and racism, and prompted rights organizations to file official protests. The ministry official's letter stressed the new guidelines did not constitute a position on the claims and relate to all women, not just those from Ethiopian.
Doctors will be required to ensure the patients seeking birth control of their own free will and understand the treatment. Where needed, consultation will be aided by medical translation services and cultural facilitators from the Ethiopian community.
Ziva Mekonen-Dego, chief executive of the Israel Assn. for Ethiopian Jews, welcomed the ministry's response but said this was the bare minimum. "We expect the health ministry to take full responsibility for the women," she said. Together with the Association for Civil Rights in Israel, the organizations demand the ministry assemble a team of health-care professionals and cultural facilitators to supervise the women's medical and emotional welfare.
The health ministry has denied responsibility for the practice but Mekonen-Dego noted the authorities were aware of the high rates of this treatment among such a small population. "This suggests that the ministry collaborated with a racist policy applied to a weakened population and perhaps even guided it," she said. "I am still shocked by this."
Depo-Provera is sometimes the preferred method of birth control chosen for institutionalized women or recommended for individuals deemed incapable of following a daily regime.
It is not trying to make things better, but put them in to proper perspective.
Using the incorrect terminology to cast aspersions is wrong.
That is far more sad than those trying to correct the record with correct terminology.
And I also cited the same as you to prove you wrong.
1 a process or act that renders a person unable to produce children. See also hysterectomy, tubal ligation, vasectomy.
Their egg is still capable of being fertilized. As such they are not sterile.
The correct wording should be contraceptive, or birth control. Not sterilization.
Sterilization is improperly used. And it is done to cast aspersions. It is the wrong word, and attempting to use it that way makes it more wrong.
