Caitiri, the article is absurd enough to be dismissed straight away.
I might look into how uni and college make us little women turn into angry and ugly feminists though...

Ah, yes, religious zealots who have no idea of something called science, blaming promiscuous women for the atrocities in the world.

Did that sum it up okay?

My uni tried unsuccessfully to turn me into a feminist ,  I staunchly resisted........ and then I grew up  (a bit) and realised I was a complete idiot.

Yes,but we should explain that 'promiscuous' seems to mean any woman who uses the pill.

Yes ... because when the uterine lining, in which the fertilised ovum embeds, sheds all the little fetusii stay behind, clinging valiantly to the inhospitable, barren environment that remains ...  wacko.gif

I did not know you were a human reproduction specialist before howdo!  Gosh you are so clever.
My doctor is very stupid as she does not know this.  Had some weird explanation that made no sense at all....

I haven't learned so much about reproduction in a single day since that day back in 1983 when I was told that if you sat on a boys lap without several layers of newspaper between you you would "Totally get, like totally pregnant, and stuff!"

How bizarre.

Love the fact they are referencing Science. Science, of all things?

Surely they should know that if the bible doesn't mention womb graveyards, it can't be true.
