So, since I have a dull and sad office job, it’s pretty normal for my coworkers and I to consume hours of our work time on social media like freaking addicts, and when we find a funny video or an interesting one we share it with the rest.

I don’t know why, but on my desk mate’s insta appeared some dude video of him before he had his vasectomy surgery with a description written and the guy in question making a thumbs up. . The thing is, when she showed it to us she was outraged , but my other coworker and I basically said “good for him!”, but she was saying “I don’t know, I don’t think it is right”. And I know it was pointless on my part to keep the conversation, but I kept going with it.

“Why do you think it’s not good? he is not doing nothing bad”

“I don’t know, I just don’t think is ok”

“But why? If he doesn’t want kids of course he should make a vasectomy”

“I don’t know”

“Ok, do you understand that if your only argument to be against something is that you don’t know, you are only acting under prejudice?” And I think that comment activated her pride, because she continued with justification that they didn’t make sense at all. Things she wouldn’t agree to remove her vagina, to which my other coworker and I explained to her you are not cutting an entire penis away in a vasectomy, you can still have sex, but don’t make babies in the process, besides, not all sexual acts have to include genitalia to be sexual.

The talk ended when we reminded her that just because someone has a vasectomy doesn’t mean he doesn’t have kids already, just that he doesn’t want more, that idea calmed her down.

But it still annoys me how easily people reject stuff with the explanation that “they don’t know why.”. That argument shouldn’t have a place in today’s society, you can’t hate something so big like the procedures someone chooses for his body and don’t know why. Because we do know why, you are just repeating everything your religious leaders said to you without thinking for a second what it means. That’s the same mentality that is making abortions illegal in the US again.

So, yeah, that’s what is on my mind right now. Hope you guys are fine wherever you are. I’ll just lay here trying to not end with a mental breakdown or something, I don’t know.
