The Pill Makes Women Pick Bad Mates, or at least according to this article from LiveScience.

Birth-control pills could screw up a woman's ability to sniff out a compatible mate, a new study finds.

While several factors can send a woman swooning, including big brains and brawn, body odor can be critical in the final decision, the researchers say. That's because beneath a woman's flowery fragrance or a guy's musk the body sends out aromatic molecules that indicate genetic compatibility.

Well at least the pill keeps her from getting pregnant from the bad mate.  Besides, I know a bunch of women who are pretty good at picking bad mates, no birth control pills involved.
