You mean like this
professor of environmental engineering
here in the states? Or are you talking about the people who are "pro-drinking your own recycled urine", along with its complement of digested birth control pills, and tagamet? Am I missing something here?
Naw. Water reclamation does not filter out the hormones women pee out from birth control pills (of which only about 20% to 40% are used by the body). Reclaimed water is high in female hormones, and this is a worl-wide phenomenon. In fact, this same phenomenon has been blamed for the decrease in male sperm counts in the last fifty-or-so years.
The studies on that are a bit shaky at best, but they also blame exposure to plastics and pesticides; not just the birth control pills. Its also been used to explain
the rise in men's magazines.
On the side of the main article: Health & Living Busting out The average bra size in Australia has increased from a modest 12B to an ample 14C in just six years I recall reading about how females in many countries are starting sexual development at much younger ages. Everything from additives and hormones on food has been blamed. That'e the problem, that we see the side offects of new tech and products only may years after the fact. I fear that in a dozen or so years we'll find out that, say, all that 'purified' water we chug daily to be healthy & thin has been doing something else, thanks to the plastics involved.
Who's an idiot? The post doesn't say, and there are several blokes mentioned in the article. I'm not going to be able to sleep until I know.
Bush. Bush is an idiot. Rest your weary head.
Drinking water made me into a man!
Didn't they find that the same is true of some antidepressants?
In fact, this same phenomenon has been blamed for the decrease in male sperm counts in the last fifty-or-so years.
And this is why I only drink water that has been cooked with a significant quantity of nutrient-rich and sperm-preserving barley and hops.
"More than 61 per cent of residents in the drought-stricken city of Toowoomba, west of Brisbane, rejected the proposal to drink their own wastewater in a referendum on Saturday."
Well when you put it like that, I should hope so!
I'm glad to know that taking the pill not only keeps me from spawning, but is sharing the gift of non-fertility with a worldful of random strangers :D
Monkeyfilter: nutrient-rich and sperm-preserving
Taking the pill gave me fibrocystic breast disease. As such, I cannot wear a bra. Yes, men. You heard me. I don't wear a bra.
In Soviet Russia...

I have kung-fu bouncing action. Who the hell sent me a Gender Blender for my birthday? I suppose it's time for Medusaritas, then.
It's your birthday? Well, I have a very special present for you...
I see enough
with all the fat dudes running around. I don't need to see anymore.
In my part of the world, we call those "bitch tits." And glama, that link is just so so wrong.
I agree that link is so wrong, especially since it leads to a page of advertisng links.
You know, I am a big fan of body hair on a man, but the boobs have to go.
Alls I know is that if I ever meet a man named "Springborg", I shall marry him on the spot in order to swipe his supercool surname.
*changes name to Ralph Springborg*
Glamma, your link finally worked for me and I have just one question. Is it wrong of me that I am turned on and repulsed by it in equal measure?
