I am torn, as one is, between various news stories today. Which, if any, to cover?
Male contraception has reared its ugly and long dead head once more. It won’t work. If I were commissioned to do a feasiblity study on the notion I wouldn’t even lift my pen.
First hurdle: Men tend to be quite protective of their spraying themselves widely. It’s nature.
Secondly: I, woman, would never ever trust a man to take care of matters maternal. If I, woman, don’t want to become pregnant I’d rather take care of it myself.
Mind you, having said that: I am the mother of a son. And I dearly hope that, until he is ready, his destiny (and that of his child) won’t be left to careless abandon of a woman. Which still doesn’t make me think that the male pill is a good idea.
