Day 153 – Positive pregnancy tests for sale


It seems that this is the new thing out there and the next step towards a “better world”. Basically if you are pregnant or you still have your pregnancy tests from the time you were, you just go online and place an ad on Craiglist or something similar and sell your positive pregnancy test. The reason? Because there are so many fucked up women that want to force a man to stay with them, that at some point I think they stop reasoning or even emitting brain waves.

This is some of the examples that are out there and the way sellers are advertising their products: “”Wanna get your boyfriend to finally pop the question? Play a trick on Mom, Dad or one of your friends? I really don’t care what you use it for.” or “Once again… selling pregnancy positive tests for $50 each. Need money for my kids. Make that man yours… forever!”

I mean common, really? This is outrageous, either if you are buying them or selling them. Is it possible that there are women out there that would just destroy someone’s life for what? For a chance to be happy based on a lie, with a man that obviously you don’t trust to want to be yours, if you need to do this crazy thing in the first place. I am not even going to start screaming about how insane and disgusting it is to see someone selling their positive pregnancy tests and claiming that it’s for feeding their children; the irony of it is just unspeakable. Oh and this woman is even better; she was quoted in The Guardian as saying: “I am pregnant and will sell you my positive pregnancy test for $20… I don’t care what you need them for.” Really? You don’t care what they need it for? Nothing and I mean absolutely nothing good can come out of a situation like this and it can lead even to disastrous consequences. What about love, trust, communication, life? Is that all bullshit? Is that only for the few of us who have some integrity and believe in common sense?

The funny thing is that after I found that post on the internet, when I tried to Google and research some more, do you know what was the first link that showed up? How to make a positive pregnancy test in 14 steps. I can’t even begin to say how outraged and pissed off I am, both as a woman and as a mother. I understand women’s desperation of wanting to be with someone, of wanting to be loved and spoiled and having that comfort and security, but honestly that is not the way to get it and although I know a bunch of them who would buy these things and “make that man forever theirs”, I still can’t process this information. Some can say you want to play a prank on someone but I would respond back that this is not something you should joke around with. Any person can react differently to something like that and who knows, worst case scenario that bastard you are trying to get for life may have a heart attack and die and you are left like a fool with someone else’s pee in your hand and still alone.
