"It would make the backlash to the all-female Ghostbusters look polite. Because, unlike the Ghostbusters, who were only men because men tend to write male characters, Bond’s masculinity is part of his identity. It’s what makes him an icon. He likes women, booze, and cars. He’s dedicated to protecting his country and fiercely loyal to his friends. Men want to be him, and women … you know the rest. Bond isn’t just a man — he’s a 'man’s man.' So what would happen if James became Jane? The fanboys would revolt. They’d say the world is going to shit because a movie character changed from a suit to a pantsuit. A woman driving an Aston Martin and saving the world from imminent destruction? It can’t be! Forget whether Anderson would be the best choice for Bond — by the way, whatever happened to Idris Elba? — hissy fits thrown by offended fans crying into their martinis are reason enough to embrace her casting. She already has." - New York Magazine
"With traditional birth control, a woman takes a hormone pill for 21 days to stop her cycle. Then she takes a sugar pill for a week, so she can have what looks like a period. But [Dr. Elizabeth Micks] says, physiologically this isn't a real period at all. And it isn't necessary. 'There's absolutely no medical need to have a period when you're on contraception,' she says. So why have women been having all these 'fake' periods for decades? 'It's actually a historical thing,' she says. One of the doctors who helped invent the pill was Catholic. He thought the pope might accept the pill if it looked like women were having periods. But the Catholic church never came around to the pill. And when doctors actually asked women if they wanted to have these fake periods, many said they didn't." - NPR
