Cade Leebron: “I was pretty angry about the CDC declaring that sexually active women should abstain from drinking unless we’re on birth control, especially since I’m taking a break from my birth control pill to see how that affects my multiple sclerosis symptoms. (Thus far, it’s been surprisingly great, in case anyone was wondering.) I think women’s health is so tightly regulated and fiercely debated (by old white men, of course) already, and I don’t welcome more scolding and judging and squeezing of our lives.” (website)
