So birth control is a miracle for a lot of people, not just for sexual reasons but if the pill helps regulate hormonal or health issues that you have, which is wonderful. But something that struck me the other day is the massively long list of side effects pretty much all of them have. Why are so many women fine with living with the myriad of side effects such from a perforated uterus from the IUD to DVT from hormonal birth control, just to have sex? Like I said, they are a miracle for a lot of people but a nightmare for others, and we're just expected to put up with that, feels like yet another draconian punishment for sex, and still no male options other than barrier or vasectomy. My next partner can wear condoms or shove them up his ass as far as I'm concerned. Not polluting my body with shit that fucks up my shit again (I am one of those people who can't seem to find any medical method that works).
