    I deleted the politics from this story to highlight the humor.

    No, Birth Control Isn’t Making People Lesbians

    An Australian woman shared that she “became a lesbian” after going off the pill. Her story went viral, and lots of people without medical degrees weighed in.

    First, here’s how this all started: Earlier this month, an Australian woman shared that she “became a lesbian” after going off the pill, claiming she felt “dull” while on contraception, only to now feel like a “horny teenage boy” with her new girlfriend. Of course, the story quickly went viral. The woman, Tessa, told the Australian Kylie & Jackie O radio show that before the pill, she used to be “100 percent into men,” and once she stopped taking it, she “suddenly” realized that “women are hot.” True!

    “Thank God I came off the pill,” she said. “I’m living with my best friend and I couldn’t be happier.”
    ...
    Tessa’s story has since inspired others to share their own stories, as part of an ongoing conversation that took off last month, shortly after a viral tweet from conservative talk show host Alex Clark wrote, “*whispers* the birth control pill can falsely make women feel bisexual.” The tweet was extensively trolled, but some took it more seriously than others. The r/bisexual Reddit community broke out in anecdotes of women sharing their own experiences of how they either become a lesbian or bisexual while on birth control pills or shortly after going off them—appearing to corroborate Clark’s tweet and Tessa’s story.

    Quite the opposite.
    I think that the hormonal pill makes you desire men more and more ...

    There's a lot of anecdotal evidence that hormonal medication and treatment can cause shifts in sexuality somehow. A lot of transsexual people claim such experiences. It's not so rare.

    Large difference in dosages.
    Birth control pills you are talking dosages in micrograms. Gender change you are talking milligrams. And I believe they are different hormones

    I don't know much about the hormones and dosages MtFs take. It really depends on the individual's body. Not all of them are on large dosages. Some of them can just take birth control pills/patches and that's it.
