Doctor Testing Dangerous Drug to 'Prevent' Lesbianism?



Wow this is just ridiculous...



Afraid your daughter may be queer, or not be interested in becoming a mom? Medical researchers think they have a cure for her -- a dangerous steroid you take while pregnant.

Dr. Maria New has a new strategy for treating unborn fetuses: the use of a potentially dangerous steroid aimed at preventing a rare congenital disorder that affects the adrenal gland, potentially consigning the future child to a lifetime regime of drugs.

It also prevents "some of the symptoms of [this disorder] in girls, namely ambiguous genitalia. Because the condition causes overproduction of male hormones in the womb, girls who are affected tend to have genitals that look more male than female, though internal sex organs are normal."

Dr. New offers pregnant women dexamethasone, a risky steroid aimed at female fetuses that may have this disorder. Many exposed to dexamethasone through this off-label use are not being enrolled in controlled clinical trials.

And yes, it gets worse. As columnist Dan Savage points out, Dr. New is also exploring the use of dexmethasone's effects on future fetuses' desires to explore "male careers" or have disinterest in becoming mothers.

What?!?! Yeah let's inject drugs into unborn female children to make sure they will be more 'womanly' - GIVE ME A BREAK!

Messing around with a fetus is not right - at least while it's still in the mothers body! (lets keep the debate about stem cells out of this thread please)

Anyway this article

I literally searched for 'prevent lesbianism' and nothing came up... why does the search never work for me?

For sure I don't want this drug. I am quite happy being a woman, trapped in a nan's body. I am, definetly happy being a lesbian with s msn's woohoo. Do you realize how many chicks you can pick up being this particular sort of devieance from the norm?

This seems as if the majority of mainstream pharma is against it, so we haven't much to worry about. See:
