I assume Ms. Fluke is a liberal feminist, but by buying her own birth control isn't she empowering her (presumably) male partners to just exploit her for free sex and take no responsibility? In feminist thinking, all sex in marriage is rape, but how much more so if the husband refuses to buy the birth control? Ms Fluke is thus allowing herself to be sexually exploited, essentially raped by her sex partners, twice...once sexually and once by forcing her to buy her own birth control. Isn't she failing to empower herself as a woman by being a victim who needs to have the government protect her?
Ms. Fluke I think you have failed your class in feminism.

“Another effect that gives cause for alarm is that a man who grows
accustomed to the use of contraceptive methods may forget the reverence due to a woman, and, disregarding her physical and emotional equilibrium, reduce her to being a mere instrument for the satisfaction of his own desires, no longer considering her as his partner whom he should surround with care and affection.”

Trying to apply intellectual and logical consistency to the left is like trying to tack jello to the wall.
They don’t think any deeper than
“I want what I want when I want it and I don’t want to have to pay for it in any way.”
