The male pill? Bring it on
Don’t tell me men couldn’t be trusted to take contraceptive pills – I did two trials, and it was frankly brilliant

The male contraceptive pill is in the news again, and, having done two years’ of clinical trials, I hope this time it will really happen. It is for commercial and social reasons that the male pill is not yet available, not scientific ones – the drug companies think men won’t be interested, and they think women won’t trust men who say: “Don’t worry, darling, I’m on the pill.” But my experience, albeit more than a decade ago, was largely positive, and those attitudes are seriously outdated. The first time I took part, I was off with my then-partner to the family planning clinic, when she said: “It’s so unfair that there isn’t a pill you could take instead of me. Would you, if you could?” There’s really only one answer to that question. When we got to the clinic there was a cheesy poster on the wall showing Neil Armstrong on the moon, captioned “Be the first man on the pill!” And so the deal was done. (via The male pill?

the layout of orzammar wrt castes doesn’t make sense dwarves would have no damn reason to want nobles to be literally higher than other classes considering that they’re afraid of falling into the sky and the casteless of dust town share that castelessness with surface dwarves if anything the farther down into the earth you go the more nobility you should see y/y

I had too many things to say to just reply so…

ohhh no hank green has an upcoming vlogbrothers video about gender and gender identity and shit i just

ack

he’s very nervous and this makes me nervous as well because um he’s a cishet dude

also he’s a cishet dude whose sympathies were with laci green when that whole catastrophe went down

so

while i do adore the green brothers very much and respect them and their opinions I AM WORRIED ABOUT WHAT HANK IS GOING TO HAVE TO SAY BECAUSE TYPICALLY CISHET DUDES’ THOUGHTS REGARDING THAT SORT OF THING ARE RARELY EVER

REALLY

GOOD….OR CALLED FOR….

you know whose opinions about gender i really want to hear

a straight cis guy’s

yes their opinions never get heard this will be totally new
