Men Are So Over Taking Birth Control, The Side Effects Weren’t Worth It

You know how many shitty people there are on this sinking planet? You know how many more there would be if not for birth control? You know it’s been solely up to women to maintain the birth rate forever? We’ve been shouldering the burden of not only child birth and monthly menstruation cycles, in addition to insurmountable sexism and glass ceilings, but also abortions, awkward OB/GYN visits, uncomfortable IUD implantation.

It may have taken you a long time to come around to the idea, but you did try it. And guess what? Y’all felt some of those same side effects, namely the depression. And y’all handed the baton right back. Studies are halted. Men don’t wanna try birth control anymore.
