“Men should shut up”

“Men stopped the trials of oral contraception due to side effects”

“Pills will be the go-to reversible male birth control”

“All men should get vasectomies.”

“Freeze your sperm if you might want kids later”

“People can just adopt”

“With no abortions, more ‘healthy’ babies will be available” (Pro-life argument)

“Just stop having sex with men”
