Do they not notice or do they just refuse to look?

As we all know there are unfair expectations that are heaped on us because of our gender and two of the most common ones is that "real women" should not enjoy sex or something is wrong with them whereas "real men" must enjoy sex at all times or something is wrong with them. You would think that folks would know this by now. I guess not.

I'm totally agree that its sexist towards women to try to block the release of birth control methods and HPV prevention methods because it will turn them into sluts. However it would appear they couldn't just stop there. No they had to go the extra mile and speak on male sexuality.:
Will people be clamoring for Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis to be yanked from the shelves because it makes the men who take it into sex-craved horn-dogs? Anyone? Bueller? Didn't think so.
Now what this person is either not realizing or is actively ignoring is that the reason that isn't likely to happen is because as far as out gender roles are concerned sexual prowess equals manliness.

The writer of that post has a link to a source that says that men men who take drugs for erectile dysfunction are two to three times more likely to contract an STD.

Yeah men are oh so f'n privileged to be expected to throw caution to the wind in the pursuit of sex.
