I refuse to accept any kind of argument that basically says, "well, women are so much better at being responsible, so they should be the ones to take care of all these inconvenient details like birth control". besides, any guy that actually cares about whether or not he's going to become a dad can remember that kind of thing. If they can remember the scores on a football game that happened 10 years ago, they can keep a doctors appointment in their calender.
No no, not to sound offensive, but you're either misreading my post or putting words in my mouth. I wasn't implying that men are lazy/unresponsible and women should be the only one's to deal with the sexual contraceptions. If it were a shot thing every four months, then yes, I don't see men in general having problems with it. I also don't think it should be a women's responsibility to bring other things like condoms and so on. That should be the guy's responsibility (barring any kind of surprise kind of thing by the girl). But as far as pill taking goes, that's a general topic. I know and have observed that in general, men will be more forgetting to take the pills and/or needing to be reminded by women. That observation goes beyond me, my family and/or friends.
As far as the injections for women. From the news stories I've read/seen, I honestly don't think it would be worth the risk at this point. They seem to be still too developmental. There are a lot of more side-effects caused. So from that perspective, I'd be alone worried about taking any kind of shot for a man (as much I would be for a woman).
