GREAT dissection of an article in ny mag by evil slutopia

Has The Pill Created A Fertility Crisis?

Oh New York magazine, you've done it again.

The Dec. 6, 2010 issue of New York includes an article (the cover story) entitled "Waking Up From The Pill". In it, Vanessa Grigoriadis covers the 50th anniversary of the oral contraceptive while completely condescending women and missing the point. She claims that The Pill may have inadvertently caused a fertility crisis, because having sexual freedom somehow disconnects women from their bodies (and apparently their brains?).

According to Ms. Grigoriadis, The Pill turns a woman's body into "an efficient little non-procreative machine" to which I would respond, well duh.  She wrote that The Pill's exactly 28-day cycle, is "a nice effect, but it’s not real. And there’s a cost to this illusion"... Why?

Apparently she believes that having control over our bodies makes us lose control of our bodies:..

What an idiot. Infertility can be attributed to so many sources and to pin it on birth control pills is ridiculous. It's the same logic that goes into telling a woman that if she has an abortion she will become infertile (as this was once told to me).
