A Woman Is Asked Why She Uses Birth Control. Her Response Should Be More Common Than It Is.

99% of women between the ages of 15 and 44 who are sexually active have used birth control at some point. That's a lot, but can we go back to the words "sexually active" for a sec? They often get glossed over to focus on who supports birth control or other reasons women use it (and there are plenty of them, don't get me wrong!). But why can't we talk about sex? I love this cartoon for taking on the taboo subject of sex — and the slut-shaming that comes with it — and knocking it right over.
