    It actually IS that simple. I know because I've been abstinent for nearly 8 years now. All you have to do, is don't.

    It's as easy as not hitting yourself in the head with a hammer.

    The problem is it's to simple an idea to get across to a lot of people. Most folks look for complications. This is to simple. It's like telling a child to just not play video games; they can't imagine what else there could be to do with their time.

    Jerry...I love it when people talk about "exceptions" rather than the "rule"...and then...try to make the "exceptions" sound like it is the rule...or better yet.."could be the rule".

    So if you've been celibate for 8 years...what makes you think that other people should adopt your sexual behaviors or choice in how you conduct your sex life?

    Believe me when I say this. YOU are, by in far, "the exception"...and, by in far, "not the rule" when it comes to human sexual behavior.

    Now I can clearly respect that you've made that choice for YOURSELF...but I would in no way engage that lifestyle for myself...nor endorse or recommend it to others. That to me falls out of the "norm" for most people. I'm not sure what the health implications are...and they may be none, but ...it's your deal...groovy.

    Men do have the same rights as women. If they get pregnant, they have the choice to abort.

    I've had no unwanted pregnancies to deal with. Isn't that the whole point? To eliminate unwanted pregnancy?

    Obviously, otherwise we wouldn't be here talking about unwed pregnant teens and unwanted pregnancies and men poisoning their pregnant girlfriends and etc.

    I never thought of it as being a "lifestyle", but I guess it is a lifestyle in the same way that having a same-sex BF is a "lifestyle". It's not like I can't have relationships, I just don't have sex.

    When I think of "lifestyle" I think of the difference between having a house and a job locally, or living out of the sleeper-cab of an 18 wheeler traveling the country non-stop. Those are contrasting life styles, not simply declining to have sex.

    We becomes socially and financially pregnant when the woman is medically pregnant. Our using illegal means to abort is no different than a back-ally abortion.

    Time to wake up, because I've had no unwanted pregnancies in the last 8 years. Considering my history, that's pretty damn good.

    There you are, saying it's true.

There is no 100% effective form of birth control, so if you don't want to accept responsibility for your actions then you should not sleep with any females unless you are married to them and keep your penis safely inside your trousers.
    Yeah, we see how well that "abstinance" preaching works. It is also dishonest, because you well know that the female has absolute power over her body in a voluntary encounter. This has been pointed out to you by your own female peers.

    NOTHING can happen with your body unless YOU agree to it. That means that if you are engaging in recreational sex it is your duty to require contraception. There will be men who try to "guilt" you into ignoring such a requirement, so what? If you insist and they reject you then tell them "goodbye" since they were not worth sleeping with in the first place and you just dodged a bullet. However, the majority of men will shrug and agree, even if it means going out and finding an open store to buy some. It is your body, you live in it....males are only visitors. Thus, your body, your rules or no visitation privileges. Simple as that.

    And if you think about, the woman who would want to keep the baby is actually accepting the responsibility for her actions, whereas you want to be able to absolve the man of the same responsibilities that result from his irresponsible behavior. Your claims and your arguments are just bogus.
    Again, your own female peers have rightly addressed these issues. They point out your arguments are bogus.
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    Well, I haven't had a drink of booze in 27 years..thus no DWI's...no waking up in jail...no drunk and disorderlies, no beating the **** out of my neighbors because they complain I'm annoying them...no making other people's live miserable...etc, etc, etc...

    But I'm not going to recommend you stop drinking.
