    Interesting. Still though, I know from working at a veterinary clinic that they advocate sterilization *anyday* over giving the pet 'pill' over a lifetime due to the side-effects that long-term hormone stuffing of a living being can have. If they can avoid treating an animal with hormones over an extended period of time, they will. I can only assume that human contraceptives are developed to have the least amount of side-effects on female bodies and Im the first to say this isnt my field of expertise, but tbh, I'm not exactly thrilled about having to stuff unnatural stuff in my body in order to control my own reproductive schedule (and neither is my body, I might add). I will wholeheartedly admit though that it is definitely the lesser of two evils and have often cited the pill as the greatest invention *ever* to have been made, imho.


    @Zarathustra I have one. And yeah, it was epic to pass out from pain just to have that thing stuffed down my cervix. Pure pleasure. Again, I'll grant you it is the best solution Ive come across so far, but unless you get the copper one (which is hormone-free but also causes more allergic reactions, and god knows your body so loves a foreign body it didnt create itself in your uterus ), you are still being flooded with hormones. And your body still has to get used to that thing being where it aint supposed to be, your period stops (and god knows how healthy that is, coz it heightens your chances of infection significantly), but yes, you are safe for 5 years, so I love it for that reason. Honestly though, when it comes to reproductive crap, I'd trade being female for being male in a fucking *instant*. You can keep the crap and deal with it, really. All of it.

    No, we're not. Reread the OP.
    Oh yeah. You're right, a child is only unwanted when the mother doesn't want it.

    "As well." You consider yourself obsolete?? No wonder you have such fucking HUGE chip on your shoulder.
    This isn't opinion. When it comes to human reproduction, males are technically obsolete (though not functionally obsolete). Eventually, everything humans are capable of doing will be obsolete. It's only a matter of time.

    As for the "chip on your shoulder" comment - psychological projection.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Meanwhile, from what Im told, a vasectomy for a man is at least reversible, though I do not necessarily think this is the best solution. Id say condoms are your best bet, with hopefully male pills will eventually follow as well (you can join us in the overconsumption of hormones then )
    I'm not advocating a position, I'm just pointing out the absurdity of Salome's position.

    IIRC, her original name on this forum was Morgan La Fey.

    I believe it was Bluewing, or Bluemonday, or something, before that.

    Yeah, you should check out the show, tho.

    The resemblance is astounding.
