How to React When Your Doctor Refuses to Sterilize You
Of the women who use contraception, 20 percent of them choose sterilization over any other birth control option. A study published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) in 2017 estimates that sterilization is the second most popular form of contraception. With all that being said, it is not uncommon for women to get denied this option. It’s not unheard for doctors to tell women that they will regret their decision of permanent sterilization, and refuse the procedure. Imagine yourself in this scenario. How are you supposed to react when a doctor refuses to sterilize you?
Why Are Men Afraid of Feminism?

10 Ways to Support Democrats in 2018
Emotions surrounding the 2016 Presidential election are still high. The juxtaposition of extreme views brought previously festering issues to the foreground, and many people's perspectives on the country they live in were changed in its wake. As a result, it's more important than ever for citizens everywhere to make their voices heard, and push the change we want to see in our country.

In fact, they play a truly crucial role in our ability to exact change in trying times. To that end, here are a number of ways to support Democrats in 2018, because it's not just the White House that makes the big decisions: With our system of checks and balances, Republicans in Congress are just as important as a Republican incumbent in the White House, if not more so.

Trying to save money while living paycheck to paycheck can feel futile because it seems like you're leaner and leaner every month—and honestly, that's somewhat true. Give it a month or two, however, and your finances even out gradually but steadily. You have to cut corners. More than that, you have to deny yourself items and opportunities that you desperately want, but you can't indulge.

Nobody wants to give up their wants, but the sacrifice is worth it once you're no longer down to the bare bones at the end of each pay cycle.
10 Benefits of Creating a Trust to Preserve Wealth
If you thought a will was going to allow you to have full control over where your wealth and properties were properly going to be distributed, you'd be wrong. It won't satisfy your needs if you want distributions spread over an extended period. However, a trust fund can actually give you full control over all of what you own and even have the power to distribute your wealth to anyone after your death. And so many people lean towards a trust fund rather than a will, even if they weren't so wealthy. It's the best type of fund to consider when you own a lot and want to pass it down to family or friends.
Questions to Ask on a First Date
Dating can be awkward. In fact, it totally is awkward — especially if it's online dating. You're meeting some random person you picked off the net for coffee, and you're supposed to act like you've known each other for ages. Or, something. It's hard to tell with modern dating.

Dear Donald, Are You Making America Great Again?
When you were nominated to be the Republican candidate for the 2016 Presidential race, I was sure that Hillary had won. You were loud, obnoxious, rude and inexperienced. You didn't have a clear platform to stand on. It seemed that you could talk your way out of every question.

I'm not sure that's one of them.
