Tuesday night's Daily Show featured a news segment on male birth control by comedian Michele Wolf. Hooray, male birth control! For years women have been hoping that one day a form of birth control would be invented for MEN to take, and it seems our prayers were almost answered, until the men involved in the study dropped out due to—wait for it—mood swings. Womp womp.

It turns out 20 of the 320 men involved in the experiment withdrew due to side effects, including mood swings, depression, acne, and increased sex drive. True, this is exactly what women go through each month, and that's basically with or without oral contraceptives (either you're getting your period, or you're taking pills that mess with your hormones and still feeling awful). As Wolf said, "You guys call that 'side effects.' I call that 'day four of a fairytale period.'"

Wolf continued,

Men are such little bitches. I mean, one of the side effects is actually increased sex drive. You men always end up winning. I mean, the shot might as well be called More Sex, Less Babies.

The pill that women take also comes with the additional concerns of potential blood clots and strokes, so, as Wolf quipped, "Side effects are the only area where women earn more than men."

Don't lose heart, ladies. It's just a matter of time before they perfect this, because of course men want to do their fair share of birth controllin.' Right, men? RIGHT?
