There’s something in the water …

… but it doesn’t make women pregnant. The waste from estrogen-loaded contraceptive pills is contaminating our water supply, essentially neutering male fish. This can’t be good for fertility either.

  5. At a minimum, there has to be research into any correlation to induced homosexualism.

    If trout turn into hermaphrodites…what’s it doing to our boys?
