Congress hears testimony on contraception: Once again, men have to do all the work!

Hard-working dudes, talkin bout contraception.

So  there was a congressional hearing yesterday about contraception, and, once again, men had to do all the work. Not a single lady on the panel! They were probably all eating bon bons and riding the cock carousel, like ladies do. Misandry in action!

Well, to be fair, the chair of the committee blocked a woman who was going to testify on the panel, but, you know, she probably would have just started yammering about shoes and how hot Taylor Lautner is. You know how ladies are.

Just another day in the feminazi gynocracy!

Shaenon: Ah… the Eye of Argon, I well remember the unreasonable terror induced by a woman kicking a man in the groin so hard that he flew 30 feet to hit a wall so hard he was knocked unconscious.

What’s with the direct correlation between referring to women as “females” and brain-melting misogyny?

It’s not direct, but it’s very high. I use female a fair bit of the time. It’s a habit I got in the Army, where we distinguish male/female soldiers when the need to take gender into account comes up.

Don’t even think of going for joint custody because 99.9% of unwed mothers are given primary custody.

Let’s see… no marriage, no divorce. Only provable parent gets custody, and the guy who whines about “women getting 18(plus) years of payments is probably not clear on the fact that absent an admission/legal declaration of paternity the man isn’t on the hook.

zhinxy: re OTC BC.

I feel your pain. The real problem is the lack of affordable medical care for most people. If BC was OTC lots of people wouldn’t bother, for reasons of cost, to see a providor for help in determining the best regimen.

Agreed, Pecunium. While I wish that the Pill could be sold OTC, there are too many variables and also the fact that it’s potentially dangerous for women with certain medical conditions (some seizure disorders, migraines, high blood pressure, etc.) Prescription medications aren’t restricted because of some NWO conspiracy to let the average person die or to make a lot of money for big pharma. It’s because they’re potent, powerful and potentially dangerous, when taken by the wrong people or in the wrong situations.

Really, the solution here is to expand access to medical care for everyone.

Nova: I agree. I am lucky, in that I have single-payer health care. That means (as a veteran) I am pretty much guaranteed to be more Democrat than Republican; because when the Republicans are in charge, the VA gets underfunded and my health care suffers.

the transvaginal ultrasound bill might be stalling out, mostly because it turned out to be massively unpopular

also, i don’t think it’s like to come to anything major, but a federal judge just issued a preliminary injunction against enforcement of north carolina’s ‘woman’s right to know’ law (requirement that women receive unnecessary information, usually medically inaccurate and designed to scare them out of it, before they can obtain an abortion) on the grounds that it violates the first amendment

*likely violates the first amendment

That and we are just so much more charming Pecunium. 😛

Question: Does free speech also cover your right to not say something if you don’t want to? I should imagine it does, but I don’t know.

@Katz
Well, if someone is forcing you to say something, then you could possibly make an argument that it’s not really “free” speech, but I’m not sure. I think the fifth amendment would be more relevant, but then again it only seems to apply to trials.
Mind you, I’m not American, so I’m not really familiar with how that works.

Re: free speech and N. Carolina: I think the issue is that the medical professional’s “right” to give patients the best/most informed information possible is being infringed by state coercion to try to force them to give patients information that is false–there’s a bunch of fake statistics touted by the anti-choice movement about the impact of abortion on women.

It’s not just drinks or dinner. MEN pay for condoms.

I know the convo has moved on by now, but I *just bought* a box of condoms for Winter Fire! XD I also always get my own dental dams and lube, because not enough people know that you need those things too. Apparently I am the ONLY WOMAN IN THE ENTIRE WORLD that’s ever done this!

The idea that only men pay for condoms is pretty much as ludicrous as the idea that only men buy drinks or dinner. It’s like we have some sort of invasion of time travellers from the 1920s…

But you know what? If you’re a ‘traditionalist’ and you think women ought stay off the job market because OMG babyz, you don’t get to complain that you need to pay for everything. You don’t get to complain about ‘gold diggers’ in a universe in which you work consciously towards the idea that women should not be active on the job market. If you think women should be dependant on a man’s financial prowess to survive, then you tacitly endorse that a rational woman should aim for the rich and powerful, and ought to sell as little of herself for as much wealth as she can get. If you buy into Homo Economicus, you don’t get to say that shooting for max profit is okay if you’re a man but not okay if you’re a woman. If you deplore that women are selfish gold diggers, drop the libertarian act, because your complaint is not that they’re selfish (since you see that as hunky dory) but that they’re *uppity slaves*.

I buy half of the condom: I buy for my home, boyfriend buy for his. And I buy lube, because, well, I’m the one to use it, so the other way would feel uncomfortable.

I had to google dental dam, though. And now I’m wondering if I missed a chapter in mst prevention.

Contraception for men has already been trialled successfully but not rolled out. It has been proven to be fully effective, last nearly a decade and the single injection costs less than the syringe cost.

I believe that contraception should be an equal duty and men need more choice, that is why I urge everyone to please sign this petition:
