Is a Pharmaceut's job all about contraceptives? I thought there were things like antibiotics and analgetics involved, but maybe that was wrong. And skin products, I have even seen such lately, but maybe I just hallucinated (goes for the prescription as well) ...
b) The thing about Patriarchy not being a conspiracy ...
In the same vein I could say Atheism is no conspiracy - in most atheists. Or evolutionism - in most evolutionists.
As to Patriarchy, in some applications, as I happen to believe in it, I think it is simply being rational.
And if skepchick wants a good old age pension when she is older, my tip about it is in four letters: K, I, D, S. As in kids.
If she believes in collective old age pension systems, they R breaking down due to fewer kids.
(Sorry, CSL, I know you hate the word "kids", but "children" is eight letters and at the end those were too many, also too many to make it snappy).
