It's Not Advice If It's An Order

What strikes me most reading this, is how much it such "advice" mirrors the "advice" given to (young) women on how to not get raped.

As inge points out in the comments:

The question is how much is a person expected to give up to reduce how low a risk to their own or their children’s health? At some point it passes ridiculous and becomes political.

Because that's the part they never talk about...the fact that - as Amanda repeatedly points out in the actual post - people still have lives to live and work to do and fun to have and problems and addictions to deal with, and so on and so forth - even people who happen to be female. Even people who happen to be female and pregnant.
