I find it horrifying that someone like letter writer Baumgartner is allowed to practice medicine despite his disprespect for women and condescending attitude towards them. I hope his patients are made aware of his troglodyte views and seek health care from better doctors.

Isn't it wonderful that Dennis Prager, Chester Burtch and Dr. Fritz Baumgartner are so concerned about the bad effects of feminism on females? Guess we should go back to the good old days of say, 1919, when the "normal" thing for men to do for their lesser half was to keep 'em barefoot and pregnant. Oh happy days!

seems everyone wants the male and female roles to blend together into some androginious (pat) role. women are women, men are men. the self aware independant women, confident, take no crap from "any man", is not attractive. very few women like this live happy lives. tough to live alone.

I agree with the statement that a doctor that has so little respect for his "human" patients that the different sexes are treated differently is distressing. Although I myself have walked out of doctors offices for just that reason.
As for the gentlemen that long for the "good old days" and believe that if things were like they were 40-50 years ago that women would be happy, sorry. If women had been happy 40-50 years ago the feminist movement would have died immediately. The fact that "some men" are still trying to hobble women just tells us you don't like losing total control, again, sorry.
Oh, and confident, independent, no-nonsense women "are" happy, and have forward thinking men pursuing us all day long. Just my two cents.

MTA losing money due to fuel cost
It seems we always get the down side of the news . As fuel prices rise, we hear about the costs to public vehicles, MTA, School buses, Police cars etc, but no mention of the huge windfall tax collected from sales tax on fuel. When the price drops, we hear about the hardships of the loss of revenue from the tax, and no mention of the savings on fuel costs. One or the other must must be good news . I suspect that the sales taxincreace is much more money than fuel cost increases. Why don't we see stories that report the big picture?

Ralph, we never see good news stories, and especially any from the left wing socialist demokreep owned and operated drive by media.

The old saying: If it bleeds it leads holds true to this day.

Oh and by all means ALWAYS blame President Bush and America first for ALL the ills of the world. And NEVER report any good news associated with the proceeding two.

Yes, Raphael, the criteria for maintaining a physician's license is to fully espouse liberal, feminist views and ignore all indications that the pervasive feminist ideology is hurting women's psychological well-being. You think we should disregard Dr. Baumgartner's minimum six years of education, six or more years of internship/residency and years of medical practice because you don't like his opinion? The weight of YOUR opinion is directly proportional to the number of patients you have treated in your lifetime. How many patients have you treated?
Whatever

You are my favorite reactionist Dode. Always something to say about other's opinions. No one suggested we go back to 1919 (when you were a teenager).

Just curious.
