The ill effects of contraception: Even Roman Polanski noticed.

Scene from Polanski's film: Rosemary's Baby


Oscar-winning director Roman Polanski on Saturday blamed birth control pills for "masculinising" women, as he premiered what he called a satire on sexism.
Asked by a reporter how his views of women had changed over time, the filmmaker said he thought feminism and advances in contraception had blurred the distinctions between the sexes.
"I think to level the genders -- it's purely idiotic. I think it's a result... of progress in medicine. I think that the Pill has changed greatly the woman of our times, 'masculinising' her -- how would you say it?" he said, looking to his cast for a prompt. - Source
Perhaps that is why he was attracted to a 13 year old?

Contraception is the original sin of of the sexual revolution and gender confusion.


  1. Terry, you're a funny guy.

  2. Amen! We should be marching in June on the anniversary of Griswold v. Connecticut. The Lord never meant us to freeze in January. And if the bishops had preached Humanae Vitae we would not have so many Catholics rejecting its truth. They still aren't preaching it even after the HHS mandate. Instead it's "religious freedom." Wake up, Bishops! You are a large part of this country's problems.

    Two years ago, my alter ego wrote something along the same lines, citing that story (probably just a legend) about the nuns who wanted to be missionaries in the Congo and requested permission to take birth control to keep themselves safe. Someone argued that there is more than just a masculine-feminine polarity by which to judge a woman's acts, and I do agree; but in that specific (if theoretical) case, which comes to us from the 1960s, I think it's fair to say that the nuns were going for "equality" and therefore trying to justify entering what would be an unwise situation for women by making their bodies more like those of men.
