Timothy Lee, Latest Mansplainer on the Birth Control Benefit, Gets It All Wrong

Emily Crockett writes for RH Reality Check: “Women are not the only people who have sex, whose lives are affected by pregnancy, and whose participation in society will be better and healthier if they can choose when or if those pregnancies happen. So when somebody like Timothy Lee comes along, dismisses cost barriers, and glibly implies that it’s women’s problem to figure that out because they can always just “buy their own” birth control, it exposes views that are a problem for all of us. Birth control isn’t women’s “own,” it’s not like most other purchases, it’s not a luxury, and everybody owns the consequences of making it harder to access.”
