That was the headline screaming across my news banner this afternoon. I remember when Jane Fonda was my leotard'd and leg-warm'd idol, back in the days when I was desperate to get my post-babies body back.
So I clicked on the link and found that the 80's Queen of Lean n' Mean owed much of her sculpted form and physical appearance to an artificial hormone. I'm so glad I stopped listening to Jane Fonda. Imagine all the time and effort I might've wasted if I'd been trying to look like her - especially if I were in my 70's. Imagine all the people who have. It makes me wonder what she was really taking back in the days of her exercise videos. It seems that if she's lying now, she quite possibly started lying then. But it's not Ms. Fonda's use of hormones that really alarms me; its what she was taking them for.
I don't understand this tie we assume that hormones have to interest in sex. I discovered my equipment when I was still too young to know what it was, and too young to even understand the sensations involved were pleasure. But everything worked swimmingly when I was three and four and five and there were no hormones to speak of in my body at that point. I see no reason why everytinng shouldn't continue to work swimmingly... assuming of course, I don't stop using it.
