VIDEO: Hey Ladies, Using The Pill Is Turning Guys Gay!

You know, if you combine some lame PowerPoint tricks, weird audio effects and disproven “facts,” you can get a lot of people to believe almost anything.

A group of  Ohio nuns calling themselves the Children of Mary launched this anti-contraception video onto the Interwebs this weekend, hoping to scare desperate girls into flushing their birth control.

“You Deserve to Know the Truth: Contraception” utilizes some pretty sketchy science to convince women contraception is wrong, beginning with the idea that birth control makes ladies less desirable to men. The idea is that the Pill fools women’s bodies into thinking they’re pregnant, and thus blocks the all-important flow of pheromones. This confuses men and leads them to start humping each other. (A study from the 1970s claimed an alpha male monkey starting having sex with other males when the females in his group were injected with Depo-Provera).

The only problem is that while pheromones are known to affect animals in various ways, there’s no clear indication they work on humans. (That’s why Spanish Fly is a load.)

Another interesting tidbit the sisters propagate is that the overpopulation crisis is a myth, and that we’re actually at risk of extinction—thanks to those darn contraceptives! “We’re not stray cats that need to be neutered. We should want to procreate knowing that every new person has a unique and a mortal soul destined to live for all eternity,” the narrator says. “Pregnancy is not a risk, it’s a privilege.”

The video does mention some very real possible side effects from oral contraception, including irritability, depression, blood clots, high blood pressure and migraines.

Of course, we’re pretty sure you don’t get any of those from condoms, IUDs, diaphragms or any of the other available birth-control methods. If this clip ticked you off like it did us, make a donation to Planned Parenthood.

      Typical right wing religious nuts. They lie to try to get others to follow their way.

      If they have to lie to back up their point then their entire point is obviously wrong.

      I have to say that I almost wish you hadn’t posted this video on here as it will get a lot more views. Also because they are screening the comments and don’t even have a like/dislike button they can claim all of those views as positive response. I would point out that at 6,000 views there is still not a single approved comment. Not that I am that concerned, 6,000 views is a drop in the bucket for the lowest Tyler Oakley video so I think we’re still winning the internet.

      With over 7 billion people on the planet extinction is not an issue. Personally I think that a well placed asteroid would do a world of good. Homosexuality is the purest form of contraception. As is celibacy among religious sects.

      So horny teen girls should take birth control pills to keep monkeys from humping them?

      Will this work on the neighbor’s dog as well?

      That should probably read “a unique and immortal soul.”

      Possibly the biggest threat to humanity and the planet is world overpopulation. Birth control is needed now more the ever.
