Steeplechaser07 you are exactly right. As another avid female runner, some of these comments are simply absurd. Studies on female athletes have actually shown that oral contraceptives may improve rather than hinder performance. For example, they may help reduce the incidence of stress fractures in female athletes. http://web.stanford.edu/~kcobb/bfit/book/ Either way, most low hormone OC pills now cause very minimal weight gain, if any.
I already apologized for my misunderstanding.

You're really reaching here - give it up. Back to the drawing board to find something a little more legitimate that offends you!
Also, is Sarah Brown delusional? She is not a top American 1500m competitor anymore. Top narcissist, maybe.
