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!

This…

This actually makes me angry. Yeah, I’m a guy, but it’s just…”shitty” in the worst possible sense of the word. And then we have Santorum with his vomit, and Gingrich with…well, just him in general.

THE GRAND OLD PARTY, FOLKS! *sigh*

To be completely fair, they did later hear testimony from two women, both opposing the administration’s policy. (See NYT: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/17/us/politics/birth-control-coverage-rule-debated-at-house-hearing.html ) Clearly, men were overrepresented on the panels, but it seems Issa’s overriding concern was that he wanted an echo chamber where no dissenting voices would be heard.

Also, this:

“Back in my day, they used Bayer aspirin for contraceptives. The gals put it between their knees and it wasn’t that costly.”

Which reveals:
1) A contempt for women who have sex, and indeed sex itself, that’s hard for me to wrap my head around.
2) A stunning ignorance of the fact that married people and grown-ups also require birth control unless they want 14 kids. Are wives supposed to just keep their legs closed, too? That’s every kind of unfair.
3) A severe lack of imagination about what can be accomplished with your knees together.

Because when I want to learn about birth control, I ask old white guys who don’t have sex.

Also, when I have a computer problem, I ask the Amish.

And now, for perspective, here’s the proposed panel on viagra distribution joke circulating on FB: http://www.democraticunderground.com/1002322286

Fortunately, the aspirin comment makes them sound like the Granpa Simpsons that we know them to be. Unfortunately, it will probably be largely swept under the rug as the media fall all over themselves to respect “people of faith.”

And it just keeps getting better! Virginia wants the state to mandate physically invasive and medically unnecessary transvaginal ultrasounds before having an abortion. In other words, the state can forcibly penetrate a woman against her will! One GOP lawmaker said that women already decided to be “vaginally penetrated when they got pregnant.” Source: http://www.slate.com/articles/double_x/doublex/2012/02/virginia_ultrasound_law_women_who_want_an_abortion_will_be_forcibly_penetrated_for_no_medical_reason.single.html

Worse than that. Old white guys who can afford contraception (and/or have post-menopausal partners), and thus do likely have sex, without fear of pregnancy.

They just figure none of the common folk have earned that the way they have.

Also, this whole thing (contraception fights, personhood laws in VA, OK and whatever the hell KS is up to) depresses and angers the shit out of me, because it’s Bush I Culture Wars Part 2: Electric Boogaloo, and we all know sequels are shitty.

I’d say it’s more on the level of “Batman Forever” shittiness. (I sort of liked Breakin’ 2.)

The douchebag who made the asprin joke has now apologized to all the people who didn’t “understand” that it was just a joke. What a craven coward.

There is a screen shot now circulating showing a panel, once again of all men, discussing the very photo up there of no women being allowed to testify.

tYou’d think it’d be a simple thing… the idea that if you are trying to make a law that affects a subset of a population, you ask that subset about it. -_-

Just more religious posturing enforcing their antiquated notions of sexuality upon the masses.

The Bayer comment is so out there that it took me a while to figure out what the hell he was on about. At first I figured it was one of those teenage urban myths, like kids who think that douching with Coke prevents pregnancy. When I finally figured it out I was just sort of gobsmacked. Did these guys just step out of a time machine?

More women than men vote, so if you want to play the sex card you might want to add a subscript reminding us who put them into office. Ethics in reporting and all that.
But this is boring, so let’s move on to something more interesting: the collapse of the VAWA mass litigation. Wow, for a bunch of inept terrorists we’re pretty damn efficient with this whole democratic process thing.
As if the roast of this feminist pork was not glorious of itself, it seems like the Canadian censorship dogs masquerading as “Human Rights Tribunals” are finally getting debarked with a progressive bit of legislation sweeping the house.
It is a good year for democracy and for free speech, and by extension a bad one for feminists.

It is one of those jokes men tell each other and then expect their wives to laugh along.
As it happens Santorums moneybag told his joke to Andrea Mitchell in an effort to laugh off all this strange media talk about Santorum ever having said anything whatsoever about such matters.
Always keeping in mind that when Santorum announced that pregnancies resulting from rape were a gift from God it was not a joke no matter how many spit takes ensued.

omg that’s so cute factfinder is claiming credit for societal biases that predate him by generations. It’s even better than mammoths, because he’s seriously implying the MRM is responsible, not just men as an aggregate.

Wahahahahahaha.

PS: Hate speech laws are generally more important for anti-racists than they are feminists. I have literally never heard a feminist give an opinion on one in the context of feminism, for real. But keep on rolling with your facts, my friend X3

It’s sad, isn’t it? We get one of those constant little reminders that misogyny is everywhere, and these guys dance like they just invented it.

Also apparently FactIdeologue can’t tell the difference between “feminist” and “lesbian” but that’s not all that surprising because they both have to do with women not doing what he wants.

Yes, no man in the history of ever has wanted a woman to fuck another woman. And they certainly don’t pay to watch it, ever! There certainly isn’t an entire goddamn industry built up around getting women to twaddle other women and then having men finance said industry, that’s just preposterous!
Good night, Holly.

You’re as bad at writing as well as reading then! (Spoiler: We knew that)

Also you’re pretty much just asserting the judges were feminists, and the matter at hand (Slurs slung at a lesbian) was considered by them specifically on the axis of feminism. I’ve heard feminists offer opinions on hate speech, sure… but the discussion has always been in terms of race, not gender. I know you think that you’re trolling us with this information, but it’s really just not a feminist matter in general.

Internet petitions: Now exactly the same thing as hate speech laws.

You do realize that your “I’ll spout incomprehensible non sequiters until they realize my genius!” plan is working exactly backwards, right?

As evidence of this, I offer the fact that certain mammals in Australia and New Guinea can lay eggs.

Heeheehee, have you actually been trolled by this? Or are you just incapable of admitting error?

Protip: That isn’t hate speech, nor is it a proposed law (making it an actual matter of free speech) it is a request to a site to remove a terrible page.

Seriously, my kingdom for a clip of Jon Stewart saying “Go oooooonnnn” in his most patronizing voice X3

Does… Does FF think “wants to watch lesbian porn” is the same as “respects the rights of lesbians to do what they want to do with one another?” Most lesbians are not going to allow you to watch them when they have sex, just so you know.

Sometimes women have sex with other women for their own pleasure, not for the pleasure of male viewers!!
