Thinking that someone doesn’t love you because they want that time of the month to instead be that time of the monthS, avoid cramping, so they can genuinely plan prenatal care, or control their acne among a variety of different reasons... is a somewhat harmful view to hold for a number of reasons. And while I don’t think it was the reason Trumo got elected, it is important to deal with ridiculous/harmful arguments and call them out rather than just letting them go unchallenged. Sometimes other people need to see how ridiculous an argument is even if they’re just lurking or whatever.

        Now I would agree that taking it a step further and being more interested in shaming than teaching is also harmful and more likely to entrench people in their views. But I think he should at least take the time to try and understand and educate himself on these issues because that’s clearly lacking from what I can tell here.
        I agree completely. I think if Brent was aware just how important birth control medication is to women for other reasons than sex, and if he considered all the loving sexual relationships that exist that are not procreative, he might amend his views. Or he might not, but we could all use the education so I hope everybody keeps sharing even at the risk of getting sliced and diced by some of we who are none too careful with our scalpels.

          But there are other issues at play with this philosophy specifically as it relates to women. Birth control is a personal health issue for one. It also doesn't really compute that they should have to give it up potentially sacrificing their health in some cases to truly love someone...
          It's not just a personal health issue (though that is probably what it is first). It is also a public health and economic issue.
          As was so often the case, Hitchens put it best.

          Reliable birth control was one of the most important breakthroughs in modern history. To write it off because it somehow just "seems" wrong to your sensibilities is utterly ridiculous.

          That's not even addressing the other areas bc can be found to be beneficial to women, on which I'm not really sure what Brent's take would be.
          If you take the pill to address issues of menstruation, but are not sexually active, perhaps this is ok by Brent.
          Or maybe if you are going to be female, you need to accept all the natural implications of that. Who knows?

          And if you are going to travel to Brazil, you should be ready to accept all the potential results. So no yellow fever vaccination.

You three, and dx, really need to get a grip. Brent can be wrong (and on this topic, he is), but that doesn't mean you need to delve into non-sequiturs.

He put it out there, end of story. It's one thing to have a general curiosity about it, but it really reads like piling on at this point. Carryover from another thread where he's the ideological outcast?
                    Thank you.

                    Edit: Fade: I'm not wrong, IMO. If I were forcing others to hold my views, THEN I'd be wrong.

                      If birth control is prescribed for other reasons, fine with that. I can understand that. That is totally acceptable.

                          I see it! It's you! If one disagrees with you, they are wrong. Period, no questions asked. You are just as extreme as the people you make fun of. Accept that.

                                Yeah, I mean, if it helps with other issues, and not used for strict birth control, hell, go for it. IIRC, Viagra wasn't intended to be a boner pill at first....
