Holy fucking fuck this thought has never even crossed my mind, society YOU ARE SO FUCKED.
I would agree if I weren’t aware of the complexities of fabricating a [safe] birth control pill for men. Think about it: women typically produce one usable egg a month. If more, certainly below 100 million- approximately the number of sperm cells produced by a man per day.
RISUG is the best birth control in the world, and it is only available to men. The problem is, it is TOO cheap and TOO effective to get any funding or distribution in a profit-based/capitalist society.
Seriously, it’s a goddamn travesty. It’s basically a completely reversible, safe vasectomy that provides 100% contraception for up to ten years without maintenance.
The procedure called RISUG in India (reversible inhibition of sperm under guidance) takes about 15 minutes with a doctor, is effective after about three days, and lasts for 10 or more years.
