No Wedding, No Womb

September 23, 2010

The out-of-wedlock birth rate for African-Americans at 72 percent is the highest of any race and ethnic group in the U.S. In response “100 bloggers” will join forces for “No Wedding, No Womb,” to force a dialogue in the black community about why this is happening and how we turn the corner on solutions. Host Michel Martin speaks with Christelyn Karazin, founder of the No Wedding No Womb movement, and Hampton University’s chair of psychology Linda Malone-Colon.

I deplore dialog, unless of course it involves my genitalia confabulating with some vagina. Excessive Vagina Dialog in the Black community has led to a high percentage of out of wedlock births. The excuses reasons for this situation like its consequences are legion.  I have decided to interject my two cents and some sense into this #NWNW movement. There are these things that prevent pregnancy. I forget what they are called. The name of them is on the tip of my tongue…

Waterbeds

Nothing kills the mood like a waterbed. These relics from a time gwan by still exist, and are excellent  mood killers.

Coogi Sweaters

AAt one time a Googi sweater was a loin-moistening go to guy from playas from coast to coast. The decades have not been kind to Coogi as it has become a point of ridicule for the book-reading/blog-reading set who will be involved in the “No Wedding, No Womb” dialog.

Hating Friends

Cockblocking is the #2 pregnancy prevention technique. That friend who is sprinkling salt into your game could be doing you a huge favor by saving your social life from a Human Want Machine.

Contraceptives

I heard these jawns when combined with responsibility are incredibly effective. At least that is the word on the street. I generally take the word on the street with a grain of salt, but this goon gets the feeling that the skreets are right in this particular case.
