Yes, I know what you are thinking? Haven’t you got some real work to do, Judith?
But here’s one for the boys. It’s something to look forward to:
WORLD VASECTOMY DAY OCTOBER 18 2013
being promoted by our very own Royal Institution of Australia, based in Adelaide.
What is with these government funded bodies, bullying and lecturing to everyone? And there is even a reference to Ehrlich – yep, Paul Ehrlich, that completely discredited fraud. And, hey, wouldn’t that Doug Stein be a fun guy to hang out with - a world record in vasectomies?
It really has a very sinister tone all of this stuff, in my opinion. Am I the only one who thinks this?
Here’s the blurb from the RIA:
BALLS ON THE LINE FOR PLANET EARTH
Australia hosts the worldʼs-first vasectomy-athon asking men to take a very personal action to save the planet, protect their families and do right by themselves.
On October 18, 2013 men all over the world, who are ready to exit the gene pool, will dedicate their vasectomy to Planet Earth.
1,000 men in 25 countries will take the ultimate snip to show they care about the growing strain that population is placing on the planetʼs resources, their families and themselves
The worldʼs most prolific vasectomist, Dr Doug Stein will perform live vasectomies in front of an audience in Adelaide at the Royal Institution of Australia (RiAus) to launch the inaugural World Vasectomy Day events treamed live online.
Renowned thinkers, academics and activists will
surround the operating room as they debate the future of our planet. (Seriously??? Will they be scrubbed up)
World Vasectomy Day (WVD) is the creation of Oscar-nominated and Emmy Awardwinning documentary filmmaker Jonathan Stack, who while setting out to tell his own
story about getting a vasectomy, met legendary Florida-based vasectomist Dr Doug Stein and together, ended up making a film about population on the planet – THE
But it didnʼt stop there. The journey inspired them to create a
movement to raise global awareness of: the dangers an ever-increasing population has on the planetʼs finite resources; and vasectomy as a viable solution to prevent unintended pregnancies.
Another thought: When is World Tubal Ligation Day? A bit of equal opportunity,please.
But seriously, for those of you have read about the enforced and involuntary sterilisation programs conducted in India in the 1960s and 1970s, be afraid, very afraid.
NGOs were effectively given bounties by the Indian government to conduct sterilisations – mainly on women – who didn’t consent and didn’t understand what was happening.
When these women failed to have more children, they were often ostracised by their families and made to feel inferior. It’s makes me shudder to think about that time.
