Reliable Male Contraceptive In the Works

Not true. Moderate use of testosterone is safe with minimal side effects. Do a google search on "HRT" to see why many middle aged men are prescribed test by their doctors. The steroid users at the gym are taking 10-30x the normal amount of testosterone your body produces while HRT users are only taking about 2-3x normal. The main problem I see with this treatment is that the men would only get 1 injection per month and even with longer lasting testosterone, their levels are still going to vary wildly. What's the point of birth control if your libido crashes every 4 weeks.

How Do You Fix Education?

maetenloch You can't (949 comments)

As long as the NEA and Dept of Education have power, education will never be fixed. They're happy with the status quo, and many parents are as well.
