Let me count the ways: It forces women to take an artificial hormone every day. It causes side effects including physical pain and mental problems. It makes us dumb and dumber about the way our own bodies work. It changes incentives so that women and men who aren’t remotely compatible sleep together–causing untold emotional pain and the odd “unwanted” baby, now to be considered an ill-begotten side effect.
I could go on, but I’ll stop with this link from the Globe and Mail, that tells the tale of how Diane 35–a birth control Pill marketed for acne–“possibly” killed ten women.
Because everyone thinks death is a reasonable side effect when attempting to fix acne.
People: if you have been wounded by the effects of the sexual revolution (and I’m getting so old I’m prepared to admit that I have been) it’s time to recognize that these “liberating” things actually aren’t.by
