Skepticism extends beyond used cars, religion, and diet fads. It is, essentially, having an active BS meter armed with accurate-as-we-can-manage knowledge about the world we live in, and giving a second look at everything, including our own cultural assumptions.

The Skepchicks just posted an article about several of the things that make me not want to ever be pregnant. I think they only left out the likelihood of episiotomy and other post-pregnancy sexual changes, the risk of permanent but generally low-level incontinence (urinary or fecal), and that one also pisses oneself during delivery.

Please, forward their link around. It may educate someone who “never saw that bit on TV.” Arm your BS meters, people. Then make your choices.
