wingnut396: TacoBeelzebub: The whole thing was just so ridiculous. Fluke was not asking for FREE/TAX-PAYER SUBSIDIZED birth control. She was asking that birth control be COVERED BY THE INSURANCE COMPANIES like boner pills are. Women would still have to pay a co-payment on the BC pills just like regular perscriptions and that's fine, they have no problem doing that.

Why does the GOP have this need to control women's sexuality? Are they scared of it?

IIRC, its even better yet...

She was asking for the STUDENT health insurance plan to cover birth control in the same manner that the EMPLOYEE/STAFF health insurance plan does.

Thats right. At G-Town it was A-Okay for the staff to get heathen, around the block sex murder drugs, but God sure as hell draws the line at adult students that are paying money to go there from getting the same treatment.


This bears repeating!

/Also, Georgetown (from what I remember) allowed some students to use their insurance to purchase birth control pills, but they were pretty arbitrary about it, and that's what Fluke's testimony was about.

Some of most vilely offensive stuff to ever show up in my @replies on twitter came after I tweeted about Sandra Fluke making an Obama campaign get-out-to-vote stop on my campus. Honestly, if I was her, at this point I'd just start trolling the right wing--if you're going to have to put up with what she's had to put up with, you might as well have a little fun with it.

TIME needs a reality check. If ever in the many decades since

upload.wikimedia.org,

is it not the Arab Spring that yet again deserves this award? Syria has turned from a whisper campaign into a war zone, Egypt is yet again in the throes of protest and the re-balancing of the Middle East forced Israel to capitulate to demands for a ceasefire. But we're going to go with ... Fluke?

It's amazing to me how absolutely ignorant the average Republican is on what Sandra Fluke actually did and said. I've heard all sorts of stories and comments from them that demonstrate an absolutely appauling level of ignorance around the issue from a purely factual stance.

I don't understand how this is possible, or even how they can percieve that it benefits them in some way? It's one thing to construct a straw man argument, but the one that they've chosen is so nonsensical that it didn't even have a material impact on any issue that really was part of this election cycle. In fact, all it did, as several people have pointed out, is set them up for a series of publically humiliating gaffes.

Time always tries to be controversial with their PotY. Except the year where they just printed a mirror. That year everyone smoked too much weed and said, "shiat! we forgot the PotY!"

Polly Ester: There once was a term for people who took responsibility for their own birth control, and could buy it by their very own selves.


I'm sorry, can you show me any instance of Ms. Fluke asking that it be provided to her as anything other than a prescription that she would pay monthly rates and prescription co-pays for?

Just one, any time, ever, would do.

Thanks ever so much!

Georgetown University is a "charity"?

Felgraf: Polly Ester: There once was a term for people who took responsibility for their own birth control, and could buy it by their very own selves.
What was it?
Oh yeah...
Being an adult.

Life was better when there was a stigma attached to being a twenty-something child.

They are. Health insurance is *part of your compensation*. It is PAYMENT YOU ARE GETTING. Or, rather, something you are getting *in leiu* of higher pay.

And amazingly, a lot of people take it for non-sex related reasons. Like, say, controlling Ovarian Cysts.

Which was, if you, you know, bothered to actually inform yourself, what she was talking about. In fact, she wasn't even talking about *herself*, but a friend who'd had her birth control (for ovarian cysts) denied, and had, if I remember correctly, been forced to have an ovary *removed* because of that. She was citing how excessive religiosity could, in fact, harm people with *LEGITIMATE HEALTH ISSUES*.


...which is why, in the spirit of compromise and open-mindedness, she advocated only for providing funds for those specific health issues, not for general birth control, right?

Oh wait... she didn't?

But, wouldn't that have been dumb? Coverage for birth control reduces our country's medical expenditures---as preventative medicine goes, it's a no-brainer. Why wouldn't you provide it for general birth control?

The only people who really objected to covering contraception were religious people who think it's a sin to take dirty, dirty cooter pills. Why do we need to deal with those people with a "spirit of compromise"? Were we supposed to make some open-minded compromise with anti-vaxxers too?
