I'm curious what you think of birth control for men, beyond condoms. What do you think are the issues with it? Is it practical? Could it even be accepted in the mainstream? I've been thinking about this for a good bit and I'm interested in your opinion.
So this question has two parts:
- What do you think of birth control for men?
- Why isn’t there birth control for men?
Obviously, #1, I am entirely in favor of birth control for biosex males and I wish very much that temporary, non-surgical options were available. Though, if it were available, I would (if I had a uterus) probably still take birth control because I would want to be the one ultimately in charge of whether the goalie gets pulled since, y’know…my uterus and all that.
Also…only condoms and other barriers protect you even marginally from STDs so…
As for #2, I’ve heard some people say that male birth control doesn’t exist because of the patriarchy and because society wants that burden to be on women and if it were men who had to go through nine months of pregnancy followed by passing a bowling ball through their penis, male birth control would have been invented long ago.
The patriarchy is responsible for a lot of BS, but not for this. The reason we’ve had the female pill for 50 years and the male pill for negative 10 is that the female reproductive system is much more complicated and thus easier to disrupt.
If you upset the delicate balance of the female reproductive system just a bit a woman’s body tends to say “OK, let’s wait and see if conditions look better for this whole pregnancy thing next month.” The process of trying to hormonally prevent the fertility of sperm has been a much greater technical challenge because making single-celled gametes is just a far simpler task than creating a safe and secure home for an freaking fetus.

Nowadays, calling yourself a ‘foodie’ is like saying you’re an intellectual. It’s somewhere between pompous and clueless, and probably doesn’t apply if you have to say it.

Sansa Stark: 1/10 scenes
“Sansa!” The boyish shout rang across the yard; Joffrey had seen her. “Sansa, here!”
He calls me as if he were calling a dog, she thought.
what I really love about this scene is that Sansa is trying to emotionally manipulate Joffrey into going to the most dangerous area of the fight. Don’t tell me she’s just a passive player, she picks her battles where she can and this is her shining moment of defiance.
So true. I hated Sansa until she started pulling these brilliant lines.
