Male “Birth Control,” or Let’s Totally Emasculate Men March 22, 2018

A purported “male birth control” pill works, researchers say.  It apparently works by killing testosterone, which is supposed to reduce or prevent sperm production.  There is already a sort of crisis developing regarding the plunging testosterone levels among males, especially soy latte sipping young millennials (those born between 1980-2000).  But even overall male testosterone levels have been plummeting over the past several decades.  One likely culprit is the mass consumption of phyto-estrogen laden soy products.

At any rate, this attempt to sterilize men en masse seems a bit on the nose, doesn’t it?  Let’s let men play at birth control by denying them the hormone that most predicts and creates distinctions between men and women?  Please:

One of the latest experimental candidates for a male birth control drug is a compound that would be taken much like the daily birth control pill available for women. A pilot study presented Sunday at the Endocrine Society’s annual meeting suggests that the compound—called dimethandrolone undecanoate (DMAU)—can be safe and effective in human test subjects……..

……..By experiment’s end, the volunteers who took DMAU experienced a drop in their levels of testosterone and two other hormones involved in producing sperm, which was starkest in those who took the highest dose. The study didn’t directly test their sperm, since it takes around three months for lowered hormone levels to significantly reduce someone’s sperm count. But the researchers say the hormone levels seen in the high-dose group have been shown to predict infertility in earlier studies of male contraception treatments. Conversely, the levels among all DMAU volunteers returned back to normal within a month’s time after the therapy was stopped………

……….The few side effects Page’s team observed were weight gain and lowered levels of HDL cholesterol (the “good” kind). But they feel a tweaked dose could alleviate these symptoms. Importantly, the pill didn’t seem to cause any other lasting symptoms of low testosterone. Eight men in the treatment group did report lower libido, but the effect faded away after treatment had ended. [Does anyone else severely doubt this massive hormone ingestion/modification will be side-effect free?  Yeah, right]

For now, though, the as-yet-unpublished results are only a sign of hope.  [How is it a sign of hope to make most men as artificially sterile as most women?  The birth rate in the West is already at civilization-collapse levels.  It will be the same around virtually the entire world outside parts of Africa within 10-20 years.  By 2100, the world will likely experience the most severe economic, social, and cultural calamities experienced in nearly 2000 years as a result of lack of birth.  But that is our human nature – we cannot stand success, comfort, and happiness, and at some level [many] seek to destroy it when we have it.] The researchers are currently in the middle of a trial meant to last for at least three months—a timeline that will let them directly test for lowered levels of sperm. And should that trial go off without a hitch, they would then test DMAU in real-life couples.

Something tells me this effort has more than a whiff of radical feminism about it – there is little practical need for male birth control at this point.  It’s about making men share the birth control burden, or even more, seeing men effectively neutered and emasculated (even more than many already are).

Six of my seven sons are millennials – the eldest is i guess what they called “Gen X” (1978). Anywho… soy has never touched their hairy lips – although I thing the estrogen laden water supply has a lot to do with the lower testosterone levels. And, so far, they have eleven kids among them (the four youngest are still single). I’m grateful to God for their dad, and his willingness to raise them to be strong faithful men (although I continue to pray for HIS conversion to the Faith) – my heart breaks for those young men raised to be “sensitive” and “affirming.” (Not in a masculine way). —- So very sad…

Who needs people? With AI and robots, the show will go on!

Soon, your children will be taken from you by the State to be raised as the State sees fit, then you will be forbidden to have children and if you get pregnant, the abortion will be mandatory, after which will come forced sterilization.

Don’t think its not coming.

It will get worse and worse…..

3. Camper - March 22, 2018

Boy, who needs to read the news, when we have Karl to bring joy to our hearts, huh? 😉

This male birth control is straight from Satan. It’s a recipe for divorce, just like the pill. Of course, feminists must be licking their chops in their torture dungeons just thinking about how they can strike the patriarchy with their newfound weapon. One can even imagine a dystopia in which feminists intentionally put chemicals in the drinking water in order to emasculate men.

Vive le difference, and long live patriarchy!

What goes around comes around.

Nobody should be surprised by this.
Hormone- based contraception has been given to women for decades now. It’s accepted. What’s the big deal if men do it ? Truly, why should all reproductive responsibility be place on the female ? It shouldn’t.

I hope this wakes up the male part of society to repentance for any part they’ve played in or any attitude they’ve had toward the mentality and practice of “fix the women, fertility is all their fault and all their responsibility.” Poisoning the girls is okay. But not the boys.

Camper - March 23, 2018

Dear Ms.,
Of course, you are preaching to the choir, but you made a good point.

Tim - March 26, 2018

Side note, Catholics should not be using or promoting the term “ms.” It is a feminist vehicle pushed in the 60’s and 70’s to do away with the traditional titles for women…Miss and Mrs. Feminists loathe those traditional titles. The term “ms.” is diabolical.

Camper - March 27, 2018

I am strongly inclined to agree, but it also happens to be awfully convenient since I don’t know the lady in question and therefore of course do not know her marital status. Do you have a suggestion in such a case?

Tim - March 27, 2018

Maam or madam.

Mrs. Maureen Avila - March 28, 2018

“Ms.” might be safer for a single woman living alone.

Tim - March 28, 2018

I don’t think a title will protect anyone.

6. KARL - March 24, 2018

MS. PRO-LIFE.,

YOUR POINT IS UNJUST. IT IS NOT A GOOD POINT. CAMPER, YOU ARE AS WRONG AS SHE IS.

SOME OF US NEVER PRACTICED BIRTH CONTROL OTHER THAN NFP AND/OR CELIBACY. SOME OF US WOULD NEVER SUPPORT A WOMAN BEING FORCED TO CHEMICALLY ALTER HER BODY FOR CONVENIENCE OR SUPPORT HER DOING IT, OF HER OWN CHOICE, TO ENABLE CONVENIENT SEX.

YOU DO GRAVE HARM WITH YOUR COMMENT.

DO NOT ACCUSE WITH SO WIDE AN ACCUSATION.

TWO WRONGS DO NOT MAKE A RIGHT.

A WONDERFUL GIRL TAUGHT ME THAT. MY MOTHER, GOD REST HER SOUL.

Tim - March 24, 2018

NFP is no different than any other contraceptive method in its intent…….sex without parenthood. It only differs in methodology. In NFP the participants are using intellect instead of chemicals, devices, hormones or onanism. The intent is what matters and it is the same sick, self centered intent of sex without responsibility.

Camper - March 24, 2018

It’s great to hear your opinion Tim. For a long time, I’ve thought that NFP was not Catholic. You make it obvious how hard it is to trust anybody who is in good standing with Rome.

Camper - March 24, 2018

Dear Karl,
I’ve never used birth control. I think Ms. Pro-life was blaming others, not you or anyone else who reads this blog. It’s wonderful that you have never used birth control. I think we are all on the same side.

Karl - March 24, 2018

YOUR MALIGNANCY IS SHOWING.

IT USES THE WIFE’S NATURAL BODILY SIGNS. AT LEAST THAT WAS HOW MY WIFE AND I PRACTICED IT

CRAWL BACK IN YOUR HOLE, LUCIFER! YOU ARE AN ACCUSATORY, SELF-RIGHTIOUS
ASS!

WE HAD FIVE CHILDREN IN 8 YEARS, THEN MY WIFE WENT ON TO AN ADULTEROUS LIFE WITH THE BLESSING OF THE HIERARCHY!

SHOVE IT, TIM, WHERE YOUR ETHICS, MORALS AND BRAINS ARE.

Karl - March 24, 2018

AND WE LOST ONE CHILD DUE TO A SPONTANEOUS ABORTION BY MY WIFE’S BODILY PROCESSES. WE NAMED HIM JOHN, AS WE LOST HIM ON THE FEAST OF ST JOHN BOSCO, JAN 31.

OF COURSE, MY WIFE NO LONGER ACKNOWLEDGES OUR CHILD’S EXISTANCE AND SHE CEMENTED THE MALICE OF HER FEMALE, FEMINIST CHOICES BY FILING A NULLITY PETITION ON JAN 31, 1991, ON THE SIXTH ANNIVERSARY OF JOHN’S DEATH.

SIN COMES FROM BOTH SEXES. BOTH USURP THEIR GOD-GIVEN ROLES BUT FEMI NAZI ISM IS ENTIRELY ABOUT DEIFYING SATAN.

ANY WOMAN WHO SUPPORTS FEMINISM, IS A SLUT AND FAR, FAR WORSE.

Karl - March 24, 2018

ULTIMATELY, TWICE, MANY YEARS APART, MY WIFE LOST HER NULLITY CASES, BUT REMAINED WITH HER ADULTEROUS LOVER BECAUSE OF THE SUPPORT OF EVERY BISHOP, CLERIC AND POPE OF OUR MARITAL LIFETIME.

JUST RECENTLY, HER LOVER ABANDONED HER.

MY CONTINUING FIDELITY IS MOCKED BY THE SATANIST, FEMINIST, COMMUNIST, JORGE BERGOGLIO AND HIS MINIONS.

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS LOST.

Tim - March 24, 2018

Guilt and anger issues Karl? Think about the intent of NFP logically and without bias or emotion, then get back to me.

“YOUR MALIGNANCY IS SHOWING.”…..projection sir?
I have nothing against you, but NFP is CONTRACEPTION, PERIOD.

I’m sorry for your losses and life tragedies, I’ve been there…alcoholic family members galore, drug abuse, a brother and aunt that committed suicide, divorces all over the place(I am blessed with a wonderful wife, who I DO NOT DESERVE, but God is incredibly merciful and good to a lousy sinner as myself). So, I understand.

These things do not give us special rights to attack people who touch one of our nerves or prick our consciences.

We’re all sinners and the hardest sins to come to terms with are the ones that we have rationalized for years sometimes, only to finally realize that we did wrong.

Have a blessed oly Week and Eastertide Karl.

“THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS LOST”

Really, then Christ is a liar. Rethink that one Karl.

The human element may be, but the Bride of Christ is Immaculate despite our efforts to destroy it!!!

7. Camper - March 24, 2018

Dear Karl,
It sounds like you have been through horrendous times, but that is no excuse for being as rude to others as you are. I’m not Tantumblog’s pitbull, but my opinion is that if you keep talking like this, you are going to be banned immediately, and Tantum will not miss you much. You, dear Karl, seem to be way over the line. I’m telling you that in a genuinely friendly way. You have really suffered and you are taking it out on others in a very uncharitable manner. Please also stop it with the all caps. Camper

I think that is the most well said and apt statement on NFP I’ve ever come across. Well done!

God bless~

This certainly makes sense about NFP. If you were to compare it to gardening, for example, a gardener plants his seeds when he wants the plants to grow; when the time is right. He doesn’t go casting seeds into infertile ground when the time is not favorable for gardening since that would just be a waste of seeds and of his valuable time. If this is the case as regards plants, it would seem so much more so, to be the case when it involves human life.

Ultimately, its God’s choice. I’ll abide by His wishes.

Ta, Ta.

11. Mrs. Maureen Avila - March 28, 2018

I agree that traces of estrogen in drinking water are likely responsible for some cases of infertility or further decreases in fertility for people who already have low fertility.

I have heard and read a lot about NFP pro and con. It is not technically contraception but is birth control. That is; it does not do something before , during , or after marital intercourse to prevent conception. Pope Pius XII allowed NFP’s
prototype, the Rhythm method as an optional replacement for completely abstaining from marital intercourse for “grave”, or some say “serious”, reasons related to health of mind or body and circumstances such as dire poverty. Since all Popes have allowed Rhythm and then NFP, and these methods do not meet the criteria for “contraception”, I think NFP is not wrong in itself, but could be used without proper reasons, as some suggest, which would be wrong.

Tim - March 28, 2018

When using NFP with the intent of avoiding pregnancy there is the contraceptive mindset in play and it is always sinful. Intent is the key, methodology is not. Just like murder, you can use a gun, knife, car bomb, poison, etc., the intent is to kill….gravely sinful.

If a couple is in such a grave state that they dare not have a child, then they should abstain….it’s call carrying your cross.

Mrs. Maureen Avila - March 28, 2018

I have heard this argument and I am sure the Popes considered it when they allowed the use of Rhythm and NFP.
It would be interesting to study their rationale.

Tim - March 28, 2018

“That is; it does not do something before , during , or after marital intercourse to prevent conception.”

No not at all!!!!…..just measuring temperatures and charting and graphing and planning(Sounds very “natural” to me!) to avoid a child coming into the world while they delight in their carnal pleasure for pleasure’s sake……please!!!

The NFP dog doesn’t hunt in the moral plane.

Mrs. Maureen Avila - March 28, 2018

My understanding of marital intercourse is that one needs to be open to having children with each marital act, not to necessarily plan for each act for it to end in conception. So intercourse during non-fertile periods, even during pregnancy is permitted.
The couple who finds it necessary for legitimate reasons to abstain from intercourse may use the infertile periods only; their legitimate intention would be to remain open to pregnancy should the NFP somehow fail and to stop using NFP when/if their legitimate reason for using it disappears. ( eg. they overcome the grave physical, mental or situational reason for using NFP) . The husband and wife must both consent to using NFP , and must consent to the marital partner’s request for intercourse during
fertile periods unless there is a known life threatening reason for using NFP, in which case avoiding all sexual intercourse would probably be medically recommended.

Tim - March 28, 2018

Yes, marital intercourse is permitted during non-fertile periods, BUT the scheming and planning in NFP shows a clear intent to avoid pregnancy and yet have your dose of sex. It is a form of contraception utilizing the human intellect, it is gravely sinful because of its intent. Quit trying to twist yourself into a pretzel and accept truth.

Mrs. Maureen Avila - March 28, 2018

I am accepting the teaching of Pope Pius XII, and all
subsequent Popes, as well as multiple respected lay and clerical theologians. This is not something I “cooked up” .
Most probably there are people using NFP who are not in any grave state of illness or circumstances…I am not referring to them.

BTW..to address your argument nothing could be clearer that one is just “having their dose of sex” as when they have sex with a clinically diagnosed pregnant woman”
so does that mean that after they succeed in conceiving a child, they get bonus rewards of doses of sex during pregnancy.

Tim - March 30, 2018

Yea, that makes a lot of sense! Get pregnant so you can have the NFP contraceptive mindset and have “worry free” sex for 9 months! More pretzel twisting?

Mrs. Maureen Avila - March 30, 2018

I have met people who agree with you , but even though I have no personal reason (due to age) to be either approving or disapproving of NFP, I think the Churches teaching on this matter is correct.
The people who approve often have more children than the people who disapprove of NFP so it looks like these folks are not abusing the method.

Tim - March 30, 2018

It’s not a teaching….popes have allowed it for the sake of the weak, much like the orthodox allowing multiple marriages.

The number of children is irrelevant. If anyone purposely uses their intellect to evade a possible pregnancy so they can have their “fun” even once, they have committed a sin.

Please demonstrate how the intent of NFP is different from other contraceptive methodologies.

Mrs. Maureen Avila - March 31, 2018

The intent is to allow a non-sinful way of expressing marital love in grave circumstances , by making use of the infertile times which occur naturally during most of each month.
The couple must remain open to accepting a pregnancy which could result from miscalculation, etc. , and they both must agree to use the method , and must also honor any request for sexual intercourse during the fertile period unless this would be life-threatening, in which case they would not be using NFP at all.

The use of NFP and the rhythm method that preceded it is not something one must accept as central to faith, as is the permanence of marriage which is scriptural and comes from Jesus’s own words. It is however a moral theology decision spelled out and taught authoritatively for many decades by several Popes. While one can disagree with it , one must give assent in the sense that he cannot condemn another’s legitimate use of these methods, even, or especially if, he is a clergyman.
