Drunk global poverty posts? fuck yeah.

What happens when I try to post on how to deal with poverty in Third World countries while being drunk off my ass? This, I guess. It's mostly a blockquote of stuff from a good article on the subject, so I don't think it shows too many signs of my current inebriation, but I'm guessing there are some.

Ok, so you may have been drunk when you wrote this but I still don't know if I can forgive you for writing that
"Girls who can learn a useful trade and work outside the home are less likely to be pregnant all the time and contribute to overpopulation, since they (and their husbands) have financial incentives to keep themselves in a condition where they'll be able to continue with their jobs"
It would take entirely too long to respond to everything that's offensive about that statement so I'll just strongly recommend picking up Betsy Hartmann's book Reproductive Rights and Wrongs:The Global Politics of Population Control.
