I was well aware of the chemical birth control. The side effects from what I read were severe enough to cause suicide and extreme aggression in the men that took it.

But there has been some movement on the front, so that kind of neuters the conversation aspect.

I agree that women bear to much of the burden, and we need more guys to step up. The problem is these studies require boys and men to actively go to a GP, to manage their health, and communicate effectively about sexual activities.

How many men are you aware of that actively do this when not partnered with someone else?

BTW, I did apologize once I realized it was satire, but if men trust very few women in their life, a boy having his mother chastise him will have a high probability of shutting guys down.

Women have communities of each other to support and help and grow and protect one another and in turn women believe via confirmation bias that men have the same. Men do not. Look around you and observe, how many men are willing to attempt to talk about these issue and not to do so with the expectations that society assume has for men surrounding sex?

Be well and thank you for your input back.
