Not worth the risk

Some of it is good. Some of it is very poorly researched. This goes for Lisa Hendrickson Jack’s book as well. There are studies cited but they are a small sample size, poorly conducted or misused in the text. Lisa is clearly very anti the Pill and that’s a valid position to take. Just back it up with decent science rather than turning yourself in knots to support your own biases. I write in the areas of FAM and fertility and I don’t recommend Lisa’s work without caveats anymore. It’s really a shame. But when you see the alt right using information that Lisa has strongly promoted, you have to start to wonder where they got it. It gives me pause. All in all, its not totally bad but I don’t find it worthwhile to risk hearing bad research and dogmatic thinking.

Also when you look at TERF podcasts (which I do for research) this is now also recommended. So. 🤷
