“But those are the things that God made us with so we could find other people and procreate and be healthy and bear children with our healthy bodies and love each other. They’re the most important things about being a human. And prescription drugs will take them away from you, like, ‘Oh, that’s nothing. Look how quickly! Poof! You don’t need intimacy! You don’t need sleep! You don’t need food!’ And the days and months turn into weeks and years, and all of a sudden you’re murdering your life, and you’re hallucinating rats, and ‘I’m about to lose my job and I’m 27.”
