    You really shouldn't make baseless statements about things you obviously don't understand. For an address of your equally baseless and insulting pregnancy comment, see my post above.
    After reading your earlier statement, I am now withdrawing those comments. I missed a level of education at that time. I would still like to say though that even after accepting that pregnancies are men's fault, men need to be liberated from it too, not only women. And telling men to just say an abstinent "no" has and will never work. Don't we need science here? And don't we need to accept that men's fertility control can't be separated from the level of how vested men are in social life?

    Just more social BS. Childfree women actually have lower stress and report equal or higher life satisfaction, even in their twilight years. Of course, they are women who didn't have children because they didn't want them. Women who couldn't have children for some reason won't be as satisfied.

    How do women fight it off? Many don't. Of those who do, I think we all come to it in our own way. In my case, I just had a eureka moment when I was preteen, where I finally realized that having kids is optional. Everyone had always presented it to me as some sort of inevitable thing I HAD to do. When I realized it wasn't, that was it. I'm pretty stubborn, so there was really no changing my mind after that.

    Some women just don't desire to and wake up one day at 50, realize they don't have kids, and don't care.

    Some women go back and forth for a long time. Maybe they like kids, but just aren't sure if they want any.

    Some women sacrifice having kids for other goals, like their careers.

    Some women, like me, just knew from the get-go that it wasn't for them.

    Yes, but nobody worked out ever how to make that acceptable for women.

    Its acceptable for thousands of them already. Its legal in NV, and much of the world.

What made me think about this issue was that the highest birth rate in America is exactly in those communities where neither the man nor the woman can support a child. Consequently, what they are missing is the male hormonal control.

    Women don't conspire against us men. They have technological control over themselves, not over us men. Wouldn't it be nice if we had a technological control over men too?
    By "technological control," are you talking about birth control?

    Re: Would you support a male contraceptive?

    Yes, absolutely I would support a male contraceptive. I don't know why anyone wouldn't. I think that the most promising one in the works is RISUG, which is in development in India, which a few others have already mentioned. I really hope that it gets the attention (and funding) it deserves. It would really be the most important development in contraception since the female birth control pill. One injection into the nuts, and the man is sterile for 10 years or until he decides to have another injection to easily reverse the procedure.

    I envision a world in the near future where most boys get a RISUG injection upon entering high school, just as they get their immunizations today. That would do so much to cut down on teen pregnancy rates and, in the long term, reduce poverty. They wouldn't need to worry about it again until well after high school and college, at which point they might want to get another injection or they might decide they were ready to have kids. That would be hugely beneficial to the world.

    You don't make any sense. You sound as if you are VERY confused about your sexual feelings. What do you mean by "beat yourself up" about saying no? Saying no is a CHOICE. You can always use a condom and ask her to use birth control as well.

    Are you saying that you want something like chemical castration to cut off the urges of men to have sex? I'm pretty sure that MOST men would rather use some form of protection.

    Somehow about 50 % of women have such a negative opinion about it, that if they hear you participate in it, then they don't talk to you after that. But yes, there must be a lot of reasons why that is the oldest profession.

    I think that it is primarily birth control, but it appears that there is some apparent mind control with it too, which is in women's own benefit.

    Actually that "no" is only a choice "on paper". I did it only once, a couple of years ago, when the adults told me to tell her that. But after that she didn't play with me any more, and I regretted it at lot. So, subconscieously, a "no" helps nobody, it only undermines your ability to manage your feelings. Only a relationship can say no on a man's behalf, if the man is inside that relationship.

    No, any form of castration has deadly psychological consequences unless the male is born gay. We men need a fine-tuned gradual control of this, like the one women have now. The Indian method is truely revolutionary, but even that stops short of this need.
