Ancient, horny folks know better

Recently I learnt that Silphium was the first form of birth control used by ancient, horny folks. Greeks, especially. What’s so special about that? Ancient folks used a lot of plants for a lot of things.

Well, on the seed of a Silphium there is a big old heart. ❤

The symbolic lines we use to define love that has actually nothing to do with the blood-pumper, occasional fast-beater organ we call the heart.

So it’s a myth that the symbolic heart shape we send each other via text today when we can’t come up with anything better to say, comes from the first little piece of alternative medicine that allowed ancient, horny folks to fuck freely. That’s cute. I found this really cute.

The birth control pills we use today, however, are the work of the devil himself. How can something that’s designed to enable more sex, turn you into a literally unsexable person? For some people they do wonders, though. For me it was the worst use of color pink because it turned me into a clinically crazy little old lady. And I’m 22.

And it also caused liver damage, which releases ALT enzymes into blood. Although I didn’t get to that stage, liver damage eventually leads to a stinking smell coming out of you 24/7, which is also a great way of birth control. Maybe this was intended all along?

I stopped taking the pill after six months and suddenly my instant cryings stopped, my anxiety significantly decreased. The things that made me sad a month ago, still make me sad. But now I deal with them like an adult person.

Maybe I think we should go back to using Silphium instead. An actual heart is better than the color pink.
