'Where are the women?'

Feb 16, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: New York Post

A fuming Rep. Carolyn Maloney yesterday stormed out of a congressional committee hearing on contraception and religious protection - because the witness panel was entirely male.

I don't blame her! The Republicans just don't get it, do they? Mistake after mistake. Even Republican women can admit that having a dialog about contraceptives, abortions and women's bodies is something that should have female input.

One thing you can count on with Republicans is that they're consistently out of touch with todays issues. It's like they're stuck in the 50s and 60s and can't move forward.

This contraception thing, my gosh it's so inexpensive. Back in my day they used Bayer aspirin for contraceptives, the gals put it between their knees and it wasn't that costly." Friess is presumably saying all women who didn't want to become pregnant were abstinent and thus had no need for birth control.

They had sex, just not with Foster.

Religion has always been dictated by male chauvinists. It's the only organization left where discrimination still exists towards women and men can use religion as an excuse to rule with their penis in mind.

That is only if women allow it! Todays women, at least Americans, are not going to allow them to tell us what to do with our bodies or choices. It's a waste of time. Even most Catholic women don't abide by their mandates. It's unrealistic and archaic, to say the least.

Then they try to put a "religious" spin on it. Is sharia law coming to the US? I don't think so! These same hypocrites are bumping uglies with whoever doesn't move fast enough out of their way and can't even control their own sexual urges. How about men using condoms, how about a symposium on that? Better yet, how about vasectomies? lol. Let's get a group of women together to tell them what to do with their stuff to decrease unwanted pregnancies, lol.

The real kicker to show how much men are in control with regards to sexual issues, some insurances won't pay for birth control, but they'll pay #10.00 a pill for viagra or cialis? You don't need to be a rocket scientist to see how jacked up that is.

smh.
Republicans still hold to the archaic belief that it is OK for men to have sex but not women. But then they say it is not OK for men to have sex without women. I wish they would make up their minds. PS. Your picture makes me want to change my name to Bayer Aspirin.

You're right about "only if women allow it", but these men use religion as a tool in mind games with women to control or these men use the ole' "it's God's law" or "It's a sin and you're going to hell". For the panel of religious leaders, the bible is a book written by men for men.

Actually the Catholic Church came out against using condoms back in the seventies. Their official stated position is that sex is for procreation only. If you enjoy having sex you are a sinner. Then they wonder why so many Catholics either simply ignore their medieval dogmas or simply walk away from the Church.

LOL! You are so funny! Wise too. I enjoy your posts. Thanks for the compliment, however, the pic is of Iman, the Somalian model married to David Bowie. I won't post my real pic on here. Too many unstable haters who can't deal with their opinions challenged. I will say that Iman and I are age appropriate, lol.

While it's extremely annoying and insulting, I wouldn't be too concerned. What are they going to do, hire vagina police? LOL!

We'll continue doing exactly what we want. They want to turn back the clock, however, once the horse is out of the barn, it's difficult or near impossible to put it back. Just a bunch of old, sanctimonious cooks with no real power or influence as far as the average American woman is concerned.

Shows how out of touch they are. Being celebrate, doesn't help, lol.(although secret mastrubation or mutual, is ok? lol) If sex was just for procreation as they say, God wouldn't have made it so enjoyable! lol. I see the pleasure of sex as an inducment by God. You'll procreate, it will be pleasurable and you'll bear children as a result of it. Be frutiful and mutliply is what God said. That means to me, go at it and enjoy! lol. There's other benefits as well. Great relaxer and anti-anxiety inducer, lol.

Oh, please! How are men going to discuss sexual issues concerning women without their input? They've been trying forever to control women's vaginas and it isn't their right, period. Not religiously, nor morally. We have every right to say how we will protect ourselves from unwanted pregnancies. If men are so concerned, wear condoms, get a vasectomy or do without. Why should women be the only ones concerned with controlling unwanted pregnancies?

Playing the Devil's advocate this morning or are you serious? lol.

But I'll bet 'ol Foster never missed an opportunity to humb any girl that would put out.

Great. That means I am the appropriate age. Thanks for the memory refresh. I think the Republicans are becoming the nostalgia party. They seem to want to turn the clock back a meaner less gentle time.

If sex wasn't pleasurable we'd never do it, hence the species would die off.

God didn't have much in mind when He was creating women. Periods, PMS, pregnancy, hormones, menopause, rape....it's obvious God is man.

Exactly!! Excellent post. The day a man becomes pregnant and gives birth, that's the day he can tell me what to do with MY body.
