Whatever, public health survey. Not the most scientifically sound method, but I answered a survey about Michigan's State Parks in exchange for a crisp new dollar bill, so...

How did you feel emotionally when you had unprotected sex - were you trying to get pregnant, were you in the "heat of the moment and just went with the flow," or did you find the man attractive and "thought it would be nice to have a baby with him?" Did you feel "powerless"? Or was it that you "felt emotionally connected with your partner during sex"?

How old were you when you first had sex? The last time you had sex with a man did you do anything to keep from getting pregnant? If not, why not?

Has a sexual partner ever "told you he would have a baby with someone else if you didn't get pregnant?" "Physically forced you to have sex?" "Hurt you physically because you did not agree to get pregnant?"

Are you depressed? Have you ever been physically abused? What's your religion? Do you smoke? How much do you weigh?


WTF.

/some of those are legitimate questions, just stupidly, stupidly, unbelievably stupidly phrased (or shouldn't be asked via a mail in survey at all).

Except that this wasn't a marketing survey, it was from the Department of Health to try to figure out how to best use the resources they have to most effectively help as many people as they can.

So, sure, someone could like on every question, but if the Dept. of Health ends up thinking that there's an epidemic of men sabotaging condoms to trick women into getting pregnant, don't cry when your tax dollars get spent on a billboard campaign showing women how to inspect condoms for tampering.

Actually, as I learned the hard way upon graduation, college does not give you "experience". You can only be considered to have "experience" by having previously done the job you are applying for.

Florida ranks 4th in the nation for births to unwed mothers (as in highest percentage of births to unwed mothers, 48% according to the 2009 stats). While some women become single parents through careful planning and by choice, Florida is also ranks in with some of the highest numbers of unplanned pregnancies.

Unplanned pregnancies to single mothers tend to be a drain on government resources, so it makes sense to try to find out why it's happening and what can be done to change the trend.

Deacon Blue: FTFA: whether a man ever poked holes in a condom to get them pregnant

This struck me as a myth, too.

Now the Tabasco Condom stories are out there. One which seems to actually have documentation: Woman Steals Condom, takes it to IVF clinic and has twins with the semen.

And then sued him for child support, which he agreed to, before finding the receipt for the IVF clinic and found she'd used his real name there, but his name was not on a consent form. And yep brought in his semen, said they were married, and they ACCEPTED THAT. However, it's important to note this was not known when he agreed to pay child support, it's not clear whether this was court-ordered payment either, so you can't blame the legal system. Yet.

This may be legal, as "theft of semen" is not an established crime, esp since he, well, "left it with her". Once it's in the trash, it's not really theft (farking gross, people). The clinic may not have a legal need to obtain consent from the donor, as it's a procedure on the woman. Realistically, this isn't an essential step in this problem, most women could get pregnant without IVF assistance, but this is an essential step in the unique clarity of the problem as it created documentation that this was not a simple "condom failure", which otherwise it would CERTAINLY be chalked up to.

The paper reported several questions from the survey:

Has a sexual partner ever "told you he would have a baby with someone else if you didn't get pregnant?"

Are you depressed? Have you ever been physically abused? What's your religion? Do you smoke? How much do you weigh?


These are all great questions to ask strippers when they try to make small talk.

You realize the problem in your logic, right? In order for the state to get answers to its questions, people need to answer the questions...

and I don't know who your doctor is, but I'm surely more honest with her than I would be on a not-so-anonymous state survey.

Drive up and down every street in America. Knock on doors. Offer $5,000 cash (spread out visually in $100 bills) to any young male for an on-the-spot vasectomy. Those who voluntarily accept the offer are generally the ones who shouldn't breed anyway...carry forth with the procedure if they choose it. $5,000 would be an enormously better ROI than welfare and the vast array of other programs that are necessary to help ill-begotten spawn with near-zero parenting available to cope with reality.

Wrong. It's a form of domestic abuse, with the logic being that if the woman is pregnant, she can't easily leave. Other studies bear that out - women with children are much less likely to leave an abuser, because they fear for the child's life. Other forms of birth control sabotage include slipping the condom off right before sex (see, e.g. Julian Assange), hiding or replacing birth control pills, threatening violence for using birth control, etc.

Women can receive contraceptives at the health department for a fee that's based on income.

I can get condoms for free at most local clinics in the area. I had always assumed it was because I live in a college area, so I'm not absolutely certain any hospital/clinic can or does give them out, but it bugs me that birth control for women costs money when men can get birth control for free.

Why not ask the guys too? "Ok, Fail we'll give you $10 for information about your sexual history". Done where's my $10? "But you left everything blank"! Exactally, where's my $10 dollars!

Birth control for women is far more involved than slipping a condom (cost about a nickel to make) on. It requires at the very least a fitting for a diaphragm, exams, blood tests and follow-ups for pills and implants, or a surgical procedure to implant an IUD. All health insurance plans pay 100% for gyno exams and birth control and these services are not subject to deductibles. There is no exam or procedure for males that are paid at 100%. If low income, uninsured women can get birth control and gyno services for a small fee, this is a good thing.

This, plus:

What makes condoms "for men?" Sure, you put it on the man. But a woman is perfectly capable of grabbing the free condoms too and handing them to the man when the time comes.

Because, unlike the pill, diaphragm, IUD, or implants, condoms require some measure of cooperation.

ChubbyTiger: There seemed to be a lot of questions about men trying to get women pregnant. Does this even happen? Those all seemed to be insane women tricks.


Oh yes. Think of the dumbest tier in the culture, with britches cinched up around knees, cap on sideways and a huge fluffy down coat in July. Yes ... making babies is the New Testament of manhood, virility, power and gangsta-ism (I think that's the correct spelling). Reminds me of Longshanks' statement how to get rid of Scots nobility ... "... we'll breed them out."

If you're intelligent, even moderately educated, behave yourself and generally do not make trouble for your neighbors ... you're the one targeted to be replaced by the New Breeders.

... and you're the one paying for the baby.

You ... are the one paying their bills.

HBK: FTFA
The paper reported several questions from the survey:

Has a sexual partner ever "told you he would have a baby with someone else if you didn't get pregnant?"

Are you depressed? Have you ever been physically abused? What's your religion? Do you smoke? How much do you weigh?

These are all great questions to ask strippers when they try to make small talk.

Also, my favorite: "If I give you a dollar, will you show me your breasts?"


My favorite: "Is your self-esteem low enough to have sex with me?"

Theaetetus: Oznog: Deacon Blue: FTFA: whether a man ever poked holes in a condom to get them pregnant

Men don't do this. Poking holes in condoms is an example of feminine wiles.

This struck me as a myth, too.

Wrong. It's a form of domestic abuse, with the logic being that if the woman is pregnant, she can't easily leave. Other studies bear that out - women with children are much less likely to leave an abuser, because they fear for the child's life. Other forms of birth control sabotage include slipping the condom off right before sex (see, e.g. Julian Assange), hiding or replacing birth control pills, threatening violence for using birth control, etc.


Assange's motives are unknown, but I assumed he just didn't like the feel of condoms. Maybe he knew she was otherwise on the pill or planned to pull out or something, the news didn't go through too many details there.

dickfreckle: "Some of the questions are incredibly offensive and invasive," Brown told the Sun-Sentinel. "She thought that it was an unconscionable invasion of her privacy

It's only invasive if you actually answer it and put your real name on it. Jesus farking Christ. IT'S NOT MANDATORY.


THIS...but remember, it's Florida. This is a standard response, usually followed by a lawsuit of some sort.

Dunno where u get your info jackierabbit but birth control pills require no blood tests,follow ups or exams. There are a number of plans that do not cover birth control (remember that's why the catholic schools are up in arms about obamacare). And until obamacare kicks in, most insurance has a copay (I usually paid 30 bux a month) for birth control.

That's how much I paid for the pills.

Then you have a very bad gyno or GP and you need to find a new one asap. I won't go into all the details but any doc who'd prescribe BCPs without a good exam and at least a blood count and basic chemistry panel is a fool waiting to be sued. Why do you think your doc wants to do a pelvic, Pap smear and other exams on you once a year?

I have not seen a good insurance plan in decades that doesn't pay 100% for BCPs and gyno exams. Screw the Catholic Church's health plan. They are definitely an exception.

State of Florida: Hey, we wanna ask you some questions about your sexual history, totally voluntary. It's to help provide better health care to female people in your age group.

Easily offended dipshiat: Why, I never! These questions are totally inappropriate. I'm going to my local "political consultant" so he can tell everybody how offensive this is. Because "political consultants" are the people who should be commenting on shiat like this! They're practically doctors!

"Political Consultant": Look at these sexy sex questions! It's the 21st century! We shouldn't be asking young women questions about sex! We should be telling them not to have sex at all, unless they're straight married!

From those questions that were listed I do not see any real useful information as to problems that they could address without a personal contact. I guess maybe in what areas they need to focus, but still that information can be determined by looking at behavior data that can be verified and not a survey where one could lie.

Really? Cant figure that one out? Lets see, child is born, parents get social security card for baby, and birth certificate. Both of which let govt know all about underage girls, boys, others....

The stupid is strong in here. OMG Govt is collecting information on everyone, i am SHOCKED! Even though i have voluntarily given them information on all my children, as my parents did.

To jackie rabbit (sorry I can't quote you on my phone). I wasn't referring to myself. I was just saying your statement was incorrect, those things aren't mandatory. I have friends who have skipped them. I agree regular exams are a good idea. I don't know what blood tests u are referring to. Can you be specific on what blood test would be needed re bc pills? I get exams from my gyno and blood tests from my reg dr. I personally don't see why a dr who doesn't do those things should be sued, part of the reason many people skip those things is because they can't afford them. Its the sad state of health car
e in america that poor people get stds and have babies because they can't afford basic health care. That's especially the case in florida.


Not sure what health plans u are familiar with, but many companies are switching to high deductible plans to save money. That means no copays and having to pay 100 pct of your visits and pills until u hit the deductible. I had such plans for years. The other plans where I paid 30 bux for pills were united, blue shield and blue cross, all national companies. If u have a great plan through your work, I'm happy for you. But your own experience doesn't translate to everyone else, or even the majority of the population.

Yeah, I wonder where the government got a "list" of teenage girls and young adults. That is a puzzler.

Remember, if you have a teenage girl, be sure to report her. Sorry, that includes the ones held captive in your basement or crawlspace.

Okay, answer me this then. The article states that the surveys were intended for those between the ages of 18-24. If they have the info that you claim they have, why did underage females get mailed surveys?

Either the government is not good at collating and applying the vast amount of information that they possess, or the article was mistaken about the intended recipients. Those really seem to be the only choices. If there's a third, I don't see it.

They wanted the info about teenage sex as well and did not contemplate the outrage because they are Florida government employees.

That's the immediate assumption I made when I read the article.

Misplaced a decimal point(who cares). But that wasnt what I was commenting on. I was commenting on the start of an outrage that the govt has the bdays of underage girls.
