Apparently, menopause isn't a disease after all

The medical community rethinks its long-time position that menopause is a condition that can, and should, be treated by medical intervention.

And while I let out a sigh of relief that I may, after all, be allowed to age gracefully - I can't help but wonder if men will be afforded the same opportunity. Viagra sales depend on the ability to convince men that medical intervention is a reasonable response to changes in the male life-cycle.

I guess it just bugs me that people can be reduced to their hormones and sexual responsiveness - and then held to it for their entire lives...
