gender is a social construct, you misogynist!

That's a bizarre article because she's complaining that nobody is developing male contraceptives after leading with the fact that researchers are announcing a breakthrough in male contraceptive along with other failed/delayed prior announcements.

Biological research is hard. Some problems are easier than others. It turns out that it's easier to suppress ovulation than sperm generation. Once you have one good-enough birth control solution, it's hard to go back to the drawing board and invest in the much harder alternatives. It's not some sexist conspiracy. All the stuff about gender roles and parenting has nothing to do with anything.

 

If biological research (or other hard science) was easy, we'd have a lot more people doing it.

Curt Shilling was apparently fired for this post to FB:

Why do celebrities have social media accounts?

That's not all that's hard, which is why this research is necessary. rimshot.gifrimshot.gifrimshot.gif

I think I've shared this story here before. I had a feminist Eng. Lit prof in undergrad. One day in class she stated that if men got breast cancer it would already be cured. She grew quite upset when I pointed out that not only can men get breast cancer, but than under her logic, prostate cancer would already be cured.

If she was a man she would have been fired for saying that.

So the prof in question...very liberal, very feminist, highly intelligent and actually interesting to talk to. We kept in touch somewhat for about 15 years after her class. She's also Jewish and told me she retired early as she was tired of the large Arabic population at the school getting catered to by the administration out of fear of being deemed "racist." It seems everyone has their limits of bullshit they're willing to take.

This is a truly sad article. "Prince is dead so us feminists need in on this." I don't think Prince was remotely a misogynist but feminist hero he was not. His track record, of when he no longer wanted to fuck you then you disappeared from his circle, is pretty well established.

I think this is pretty accurate. No man would raise a fuss if some girly looking trans walked into one of our bathrooms, but there is something very unsettling for women when they see something like this walk into one of their bathrooms:
