If she's pretty healthy, it's ultimately up to momma. VBAC is generally a lot safer and better for mom and baby than repeat cesareans. If she wants to attempt trial of labor, she needs to find an OB or midwife that will support her decision. Sometimes the Dr might say they don't recommend a vbac, but the Dr has a high cesarean rate. Most times when Dr's recommend cesareans, it's out of convenience (for the Dr) and fear of litigation, not what's best for mom and baby. Look up hospitals' cesarean rates in your area. Meet with different doctors/midwives until you find the one the supports your decisions and won't "bait and switch." Do your research and ask questions. Lots and lots of questions. Houston, TX has the largest medical center in the world and there's only one hospital that will allow vbacs after 2+ cesareans, and even though vbac is proven to be safer, Houston still has a high cesarean rate (33%), but also the highest maternal mortality rate in the country🤦🏽‍. So depending on your area, it may be hard (or easy) to find a hospital that will allow mom to attempt a vbac. A cesarean should never be an elective option and should only be reserved for emergencies. It's a major abdominal surgery that takes 6wks to heal from. The "postpartum period" is generally 6wks as well (as far as maternity leave goes, but postpartum can be as long as 2yrs). Do your research and make your own informed decisions, and find a Dr/midwife that supports your decisions. You have a choice in EVERYTHING when it comes to the birth of your child. Here are some links for more info and a few good books on the U.S. maternity system and the industrialization of birth. Also, finding a doula would be beneficial as well. Look up evidence based birth, and maternity care.

Hi, me again! I'm going to recommend four very different resources for this! Other than the first one, it's no particular order.

First, Pastrix by Nadia Bolz-Weber. Nadia is a Lutheran pastor in the ELCA who runs a somewhat "experimental" church in the Denver area. She's fairly unconventional as a pastor (the book opens with "Shit!"), but I think she presents a really solid exposition of what it means to be Lutheran regardless of your political orientation. There's a pastor here who subs at my church periodically who was Nadia's intern for a bit.

Second, The Oxford Illustrated History of the Reformation is probably the best intro-level history overview that exists on the subject. It's not just limited to Lutherans, of course, since we weren't the entire Reformation, but he goes into great detail. If you prefer your history in spoken form, the "Great Courses" lectures on Luther are also fantastic.

Third, Christopraxis by Andrew Root is a fantastic overview of what it means to live according to Luther's "theology of the cross", especially if you're suffering or know people who are suffering. The book is "practical theology", meaning that it doesn't get bogged down with definitions. Root is a professor at Luther Seminary in Minnesota.

Fourth, the ELCA social statements which are available in full online. These are the ELCA's "position statements" on things like human sexuality, abortion, peace, and other topics that are important in our society. These documents come out of the general assemblies of the ELCA, which are churchwide meetings every three years. Obviously, people disagree on putting these things into practice. As such, they're more intended as frameworks of thought, ways to make thoughtful decisions about these topics, and not so much dogma about the topics themselves.

"Most manga is of a sexual nature" is an enormous overreach. It might be disproportionately represented by English-language internet anime fanboys, but that doesn't reflect the state of manga in Japan. Manga is read widely in Japan, including young children. Some of the manga I've been reading lately include Chi's Sweet Home, a comedy manga about a kitten and her family; Yotsuba&!, a completely wholesome manga about a kindergartener; and a lot of manga based on Pokemon, which are as family-friendly as the Pokemon cartoon that's aired for children for decades.

I'm not defending the sexually exploitative nature of the many manga that are, but saying all manga is sexualized is as absurd as saying most video games are hyper-violent murder-sprees. M rated games exist, but most people play Mario, Pokemon, sports games, etc. Hypersexualized manga exist, but most Japanese people read non-sexual manga like Doraemon and Astro Boy.

Take a look at the historically highest-selling manga in Japan; most of the biggest contain little to no sexual content:

Chuck Tingle is well worth checking out

(She's A Sentient Shampoo And He's A Living Conditioner Who Wants To Pound My Butt)[]

Carl is a struggling actor with a huge audition on the horizon, and he’s determined to embody every aspect of the role. The man Carl’s hoping to portray is ultra clean-cut, which couldn’t be farther from Carl’s rugged ways, but his sentient shampoo wife, Rinby, is willing to help him out with a bit of a makeover.

It suddenly becomes apparent that Carl has never once used conditioner, and to obtain the look he’s going for, this is a must. Now the loving couple is bringing home a handsome living bottle of conditioner named Norb, and Carl is about to experience the bisexual encounter of a lifetime. But is this shampoo and conditioner combo enough to spruce him up for the big audition?

This erotic tale is 4,100 words of sizzling bisexual human on sentient hair product action.

Edit: how the fuck do links work

It is interesting you mention that. There is a famous book well worth a read. Difficult Conversations. There is a section of it that discusses blame and how we always cast ourselves as the hero no matter what. That it is almost impossible to look at situations from other people's views or stances. Its a good book written by some harvard business school guys, well worth a read.

It's becoming a real issue in China now as there is a shortage of women to marry. On top of that, many women are leaving their parents' houses and going to work in the factories. They're earning their own money, which is giving them economic power and giving them more control on when or if they get married. There's a great book about it called Factory Girls

I'm going to go point by point, because you just have the order of things so completely wrong that it is not funny and no longer productive.

> No, philosophers have no expertise to talk on matters of biology.

That might matter if this was about some biological principal. It's not. It's about characterizations of things. Which is wholly philosophical. This is not about the chromosomal mechanism that orders pairs from XX to XY or abnormalities that create XO and XXY or even XXX. This is not about that. This is about when we call something (something that does not have axiomatic criteria to begin with) male and when we call something female and why that does or does not matter. That. Is. Philosophy. The philosophy OF language. The philosophy OF biology. The philosophy OF mathematics. They are all aspects of philosophy. I'm sorry you don't know just how expansive philosophy is, but please stop pretending like you know what you are talking about.

> There is key subject matter knowledge in other disciplines that a philosopher has no grasp on nor understanding of.


> I don’t know what your obsession with Michel Foucault is. Is he the only writer you know of? You can stop linking his books because I’m not reading them. I don’t care about what a philosopher has to say about any of this. These are questions for the hard sciences to answer.

If you want to have any discussion of sex or sexuality without Michel Foucault you will be laughed out of every academic setting that will ever exist. Also, as a side note, Foucault would never have called himself a philosopher. He was a theorist.

> hard sciences

You are a caricature.

> Bingo! The exact same thing can be said about the basic defining characteristics of both sexes.

I have never said anything to the contrary. In general, evolutionarily, it is most common for humans to identify in accordance with the two most conventionally accepted sexual identities.

> We don’t eliminate the possible that genetic defects can occur, but it’s overwhelmingly true that the human species has two sexes that each share the same general characteristics (different internal and external organs, hormones, etc)

Wrong. It is overwhelmingly true that most humans identify in ways that have conventionally been considered male and female. However, that is a VERY loaded statement entailing aspects of biology, sociology, philosophy, epistemology, ontology, etc. Whether or not a majority of humans fall within those "categories" is irrelevant as to whether those "categories" are real. Realness is a very odd concept. In this sense Foucault would call these "transactional realities" or things that aren't real but have real effects. You can start here for that. Or I could send you on the hunt for something By Judith Butler or Althusser if you'd rather. Maybe Engels is more up your alley?

Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi?

The same person also wrote Embroideries which is fantastic and quite relevant to this subreddit's interests.

u/vaultwanderer94 · 1 pointr/badwomensanatomy

This, on top of the fact that it's from a 100% satirical book called The Story of Life by chris (simpsons artist).

It's been reposted again since your comment as well.

u/FlickGC · 4 pointsr/badwomensanatomy

I’m going to take a punt on it being [The Story Of Life](The Story of Life, thank you!

u/Aethelric · 8 pointsr/badwomensanatomy

Provided that's the book that shows up when I google the title, I'm not sure I'd be trying to use that in a serious discussion about history!

My two best academic sources are the classic He is the Sun, She is the Moon by Wunder and the fact-filled but rather bland Europe at Home by Sarti.

u/bazjack · 11 pointsr/badwomensanatomy

Fairly sure this is by Chris (Simpsons Artist) and can be found in this book The Story of Life

Don't forget! She'll need an extra-special pen to write that letter.

u/mutonchops · 20 pointsr/badwomensanatomy

The theory goes that as humans have hidden ovulation (other mammals go into heat) there is a requirement to advertise fecundity. Other mammals have enlarged breasts only when nursing, as this is the only time there is a requirement for them. Breast development as a secondary sexual characteristic in humans shows the age at which humans can reproduce. In this case humans are unusual as (as another poster said) it is usually the males that develop secondary sexual characteristics (such as peacocks etc). I read about this in this book amongst others.

Aiboria Women's Basic Long Sleeves Mesh Sheer Crop Top

Edit: this product says that the price ranges from $1.82 - $15.99, but every option is $15.99 so this also qualifies for r/AssholeDesign

u/AshuraSpeakman · 7 pointsr/badwomensanatomy

I've always had an aptitude for anatomy, and what my education lacked I filled in with the right section of the library. The sheer breadth of literature on not just the basic mechanics of sex, but even on women's fantasies, and debunking myths.

Apologies if this has already been posted here; I searched, but it didn't come up.

I first saw this in a post) by /u/Yiotter on /r/wtf about two years ago. I was browsing through the posts here when I was reminded of it and figured some people here might enjoy it.

And here's the entire text, to make it easier to read:

>The seventy-year-old female patient had a history of frequent urinary-tract infections. She had a fever and slight back pain, so I ordered a catheterized urine specimen to be sent to the lab. I went on to the other patients, but th nurse soon returned and said she had tried to cath the woman but couldn't find her urethra -- the opening to the bladder. She had asked several other nurses to help her cath the lady, but no one could find her urethral opening. I decided to help, and went to the patient's bedside. I found an elderly, pleasant woman who told me about the history of frequent urinary problems and told me she was childless.

>I examined the woman's perineum and identified the larger oriface of what appeared to be the vaginal fault and searched above this for the urethral opening. I couldn't find an opening either, but as I looked, some urine trickled out of the vagina. Suspecting a fistula connecting the bladder to the vagina, or an embedded urethral meatus, I decided to look inside the vagina with a speculum. As I readied to do this, however, I noticed something underneath the vagina, on the perineum, and looked closer. I found the patient's vagina and intact hymen under what I had assumed was the vagina. I realized that the upper opening she was using as a vagina was in fact the patient's urethra. I asked the woman if she had any problems with sexual relations with her husband.

>"Not really. It hurt the first year or so, but it was fine after that."

>She had been married for fifty-two years.

>Charles Hagen, M.D.

>Auburn, Alabama

And this is the book it's taken from.

Not the most comfortable item - obviously not designed by anyone who might actually have to use them!
