Lecture: Pharmaceutical Constructions of the Patient (continued)
Reading: Nelly Oudshoorn, Iagied Me: Represetatios of Masuliities i Disourses o
Male Cotraeptie Tehology.
Imagined Men Reading:
Why is there no male contraceptive pill?
o Feminist argument, but would men use it (trustworthy?). thought men should be
responsible for contraception as well.
o Questios o hether e ould use it eause of iasuliity… oept of
macho man
o Biological: differences between reproductive systems
Difficulty intervening in sperm production vs egg production
o Sociological:
Lack of knowledge about male reproduction because of institutional bias
in research (gynecology as medical field versus andrology)
Absence of consumer demand (not from men, demand came from
feminists and the population control movement)
o Cultural:
Gendered assumptions about/constructions of the potential end-users
and their willingness to use a male contraceptive pill (by scientist,
feminists, and journalists)
How does the perspective of feminists contrast/conflict with the longer history of
otraepties toe’s arguet?
