Yep. No reason to do that either.

We have a mulit-billion dollar pharmecutical industry in this country. Can't one of them make a pill that does this? I bet broccoli has all those nutrients too. Broccoli is awesome. Broccoli > Placentas.

Then by all means, don't eat placenta.

Just don't tell someone else not to.

It seems to me like a psychological disorder when someone wants to control what a woman does with her body and its parts.

i don't think it's acceptable for someone to shoot up herion or for a man to fellatio himself, would you attempt to label that as controling too?

if you do, i would say that we have a different value system is all, and most people in my country would agree w me, but not most ppl in this thread, and that's ok-although a bit troubling in the larger scheme of things.

Oh, I missed the part about the pills. I just read that she froze it and ate it. My bad.

the woman is ingesting placenta CAPSULES for the nutrients. i don't see how that is even comparable to shooting up heroin.

Yeah, I'm one of those "pro-choice anti-placenta" whackos. I make no sense. I know.

I tried Haggis for the first time a couple of weeks ago. That was a brave step for me - maybe placenta isn't too far behind? Wonders never cease. Right?

You have never been very good at comparisons.
In contrast to heroin or fellatio eating the placenta isn't harmful to the person. To the contrary, it helps the person.
There is no need to take control over everything just because we don't agree with something. And I think most people in your country will agree.

I've had vegetarian haggis! i think they threw some stuff together so it had the same texture/taste as the real stuff without the obvious ick factor of the organs used. it was pretty good! my dog seemed to prefer the original haggis though.

and Enter the Haggis rocks my world

Absolutely ridiculous non-analogy.

But, if a man can and wants to perform fellatio on himself, why the f**ck should I care??

I'm going to go on record that this is interference's worse post of the week. I know it's only Monday, but I'm pretty confident.

we can say that someone is harmed when someone shoots up heroin -- though i'm baffled at the autofellatio comparison ... i suppose you'd be against a woman masturbating, then? -- but could you tell me who is *harmed* when someone wants to ingest their placenta.

i don't care if you think it's acceptable or not. it's none of your damn business if no one else is harmed.

by all means diamond, go tell people how gross it is. write them letters. tell them to stop.

but are you really going to advocate making this illegal?

i think cunnilingus is pretty nasty, but i'm not going to stop you from doing it.

oh, and the verb form of fellatio is "fellate." and just how is that any different from manual masturbation?

The difference is that my value system, a little idea called freedom, can coexist with religious nuttery whereas any belief that would supress rights and liberties is not about coexistence. Using drugs and autofellatio are things which one may for any number of good reasons choose not to do but using force to stop people doing them, that is wrong.
