Do you think it is a good idea to have an all male panel convene to discuss my vagina?

10 Thoughts About the House's All-Male Panel Convened to Discuss My Vagina

House Oversight Committee Chairman, master car thief and general criminal Darrell Issa held a hearing today on the Obama administration’s new regulation requiring employers and insurers to provide contraception coverage to their employees. Claiming that the the hearing was “not about reproductive rights and contraception but instead about the Administration’s actions as they relate to freedom of religion and conscience,” Issa barred a progressive woman from testifying, as that would have ruined the all male conservative religious anti-Obama motif he was going for. This led three democrats to walk out of the house (which must have been extra hard, because their panties were all up in a bunch). But I watched the hearing. And here are some thoughts.

1. I guess I should give the GOP props for voting against the Violence Against Women Act, since it would be hypocritical to condemn violence against women, while at the same time advocating ultrasound rape.

2. This is a really beautiful image of small government and big family values.

3. I’m really glad women aren’t allowed to testify at this hearing, which is about their bodies. It’s a dangerously slippery slope and I think we all know what comes next: box turtles are allowed to testify. It’s also really hard to be objective and have a vagina at the same time.

4. Rep James Lankford should recuse himself from abortion discussions, as he, himself, is a fetus.

5. Given what men of the cloth are known to do in this position, I’m kind of relieved when a clergy member testifies that he gets on his knees every morning and prays for the president.

6. Joe Walsh shouldn’t be speaking or even here. He has way overdue child support to pay.

7. An objective Darrell Issa throws the panel a real hard ball and asks them, “do you think this hearing was a sham?”

8. That hearing was good, but having Fred Phelps there would have made it even better.

9. That hearing was good, but having it in Salem in the 17th century woud have made it even better.

10. I’m holding a hearing in which an all female panel will testify for weekly colonoscopies performed on the male clergy and GOP members who participated in today’s hearing. We will also discuss Virginia State Sen. Janet Howell’samendment requiring men to have a rectal exam and a cardiac stress test before obtaining a prescription for erectile dysfunction medication.

    Darryl Issa is a total tool of the right wing misogynists that are still living in the 50s with their obedient Stepford wives. The birth control pill came out in 1962,and threw the Vatican into a tizzy. They have hated contraception ever since, and their USA members have ignored them. When these miscreants on the panel today can get pregnant then they can speak. Glad the women on the panel let them have it and walked out.

    It seems that the GOP - and their supporters - would like a time warp that will return the country to the 50's: pre-civil rights, pre-women's liberation, pre-gays coming out, pre-contraception. They can't handle the world as it is today.

    Ob/gyn doctors have a right to weigh in, not religious leaders and government officials who are neither trained nor qualified to know whether contraception is a woman's health issue.

    It really angers me that these NAZI's with R's behind their name have the nerve to say this is about "religious freedom." The IDIOTS who support them may buy that line of BUNK but this woman sure doesn't & I'd venture to say most of the country doesn't either.

    My VAGINA is none of their daggone business. I told someone on another thread that the federal government via Medicaid has been paying for contraceptives for well over 40 years. I know cuz my oldest child is 40 years old & birth control pills were offered to me when I went for my 6 week check-up.

    What is it with these Republicans? They don't want abortion & the best way to avoid that is contraception. If a low-income woman gets pregnant chances are Medicaid will be that child's insurance. If she qualifies for Medicaid she probably qualifies for food stamps also. If you're looking for cost effectiveness, it is more cost effective to pay for birth control than for confinement expenses (pregnancy related costs), medical coverage for the child, food stamps & more than likely WIC for the child up to the age of 5.

    Of course it's not about religious freedom - it's about keeping the status quo circa 1950. These dinosaurs should suffer through five pregnancies and deliveries; we'd be hearing a totally different tune from them.

    Carol, all these men claim intimate knowledge of the subject matter of their discussions. They convene only to compare notes and discuss what should be done about the matter.
    Had you not entered into this arena with such enthusiasm, these men wouldn't have even
    a clue aboout your most private sanctuary. I suggest that maybe you should just remain
    in the background and let them carry out their deliberations and then you can deny having
    anything to do with the matter. That is my sincere advice. Anyway, I hope the "infection" has cleared up and you are back on your normal routines. Nice to chat with you. See you on St. Patrick's Day at O'Henry's"

    He's great at that & great at sending PORK home so his businesses can benefit from government largesse. But yet he's got his nose stuck up my netherparts. I wonder if his GUBMINT HEALTH INSURANCE pays for wife's contraception.

    This is a manufactured issue that never should have been made an issue.

    The goal is to make Obama look bad.

    Karma is a bitch though as it only makes these guys look stupid.

    I liked the response to have a male that wants Viagra to have to have a prostrate exam....you know the one "bend over, and this will pinch a bit".....well for my opinion it was not a pinch that I felt....it was a finger pressing on me in a very intrusive way.
