A new birth control method for men has the potential to win as much as half the $10 billion market for female contraceptives worldwide and cut into the $3.2 billion of annual condom sales, businesses dominated by pharmaceutical giants Bayer AG, Pfizer Inc. and Merck & Co., according to estimates from the last major drug company to explore the area. India’s reversible procedure could cost as little as $10 in poor countries, and may provide males with years-long fertility control, overcoming compliance problems and avoiding ongoing costs associated with condoms and the female birth-control pill, which is usually taken daily.
Let me offer a humble prediction.
For all their hyperbole and intentional misdirection on the arguments around 'reproductive health' and the 'right to control their own bodies', Women are hysterically, utterly, dishonest when it comes to issues of sex and reproduction. Unlike most men, they instinctively realize that it is the person who makes the choice which holds the power over outcomes. And women will do whatever they must to men, up to and including anyhting the Nazi's ever imagined for the jews, to maintain exclusive control of that choice.
It's a will to power issue of course. But it's more than that for them. They recognize that they need to retain their role as the ultimate arbiter over who get's pregnant and when, because it's the only way they can keep both political power, and a promiscuous sex life. that chit in the great debate with men, is the source of all their political clout. without it, they're just small weak, strangely shaped men who can't lift much or get a plate off a stack on the top shelf without help.
But give men the ultimate choice over reproduction, and the dating world will change immensely. Women will have no choice then but to withhold sex (their only other bargaining chip) in exchange for a commitment, and the whole '
slut sex positive' feminist movement will die on the vine. It will take a generation, but it will happen. And hopefully the world can then return to a more rational set of public policies, that better match the long term goals of the western world.
