Why Can't A Woman Be More Like A Man?

The FDA just approved a birth control pill that eliminates menses. Good luck finding respect for your equal dignity as persons down this path, Ladies. Womanhood is a disease for which Science, fortunately, has the cure. Why, even The Formerly Grey Lady (whose age presumably keeps this from being a going concern) gave a decidedly mixed review last month.
Doctors say they know of no medical reason women taking birth control pills need to have a period.
Countdown to their finding some... thanks to all the nice guinea pigs volunteering for the experiment beginning tomorrow. (No, really, it's completely safe! The FDA delayed its decision eleven months! So you know it's safe to take in perpetuity, just like all hormones!) Sigh. Oh, well. It's just women.
