Sandra Fluke the Sexist: Women Canít Take Care of Themselves
Townhall.com ^ | June 30, 2014 | Michael Schaus

I don’t mean to be (entirely) dismissive… But does Sandra Fluke actually still matter to anyone? I mean, you would think that even Democrats might eventually grow tired of listening to a 30-something year old college student whine about wanting free birth-control. But, I guess you would be wrong. Sandra is at it again, ahead of the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Hobby Lobby case.

Hobby Lobby has been fighting for the religious liberty of its owners before the Supreme Court. Today, SCOTUS is expected to release its ruling on the matter – determining whether or not the Obamacare contraception mandate (requiring employers to provide their employees with “free” birth control) is a violation of the First Amendment. Sandra, of course, is busy crusading on Twitter for free no-baby pills: (HT: Daily Caller)

Any day now, #SupremeCourt decides whether corporations can deny women access to contraception. http://t.co/xZ247dqtMf — Sandra Fluke (@SandraFluke) June 27, 2014

Thank God we have people like Sandra in the twittersphere to help us understand these issues. See, until Sandra straightened us out, I thought Hobby Lobby was simply refusing to pay for someone else’s morning after contraception pill… I wasn’t aware that the company was actually banishing women from healthcare clinics, and forcibly denying them the ability to purchase contraceptives from their local Planned Parent–

Wait… What? Oh… As it turns out, I was actually right the first time: Hobby Lobby just wants their employees to pay for their own contraception (The horror!). Apparently, if a company has the audacity to require that their employees pay for their own elective healthcare options, they are engaged in “denying women” their right to contraception. I guess this means that employers are also denying their employees the right to food, clothing, housing, transportation, and most other basic necessities of life in the 21st century; because (gasp!) employees have to pay for all those things with their take-home pay.

It almost seems like liberals are a little confused about the meaning of the word “denial”. In the entitlement society of Fluketopia, being forced to pay for birth-control out of your own pocket is an egregious violation of human rights… After all, women can’t possibly be expected to take care of their own health, right? I mean, it’s pretty obvious that equality and empowerment come from depending on entitlements and government mandated acts of charity… Or something.

The link in Sandra’s tweet is just as ridiculously manipulative:

Please join Sandra Fluke and the DCCC and sign this petition declaring that a woman’s boss should not have a say in her health care decisions.

Right… Apparently, employers aren’t supposed to care about your lifestyle, your sexual activity, your healthcare priorities, or your moral compass. They’re just supposed to subsidize it. Sandra doesn’t want your boss to have a say in your healthcare decisions. She just wants them to pay for it.

Sandra, the DCCC, and the American Left have an obviously low opinion of women in today’s world. Long gone are the days of individual empowerment, and equal treatment. Today, the feminists of the Left demand government-sanctioned dependency for the fairer sex. After all, in the mind of Sandra Fluke, women are clearly too weak to shell out eight bucks a month for their own birth control pills… That should be a man’s company’s responsibility.

I have a solution to having to shell out bucks for birth control contraception. It’s called Abstinence. Of course that might be too much to ask of Sandra.

All my places of employment before I retired refused to pay for my food. THEY DENIED ME FOOD!!!!!! Can you believe the greedy b.....ds wouldn't pay for my food...and clothing....and shelter?

This whole "denial of basic rights" is in line with the latest story of the people of Detroit who are being denied their "right" to free water. This is what the left has been doing for the past fifty years. More and more things that should be the responsibility of the individual are now "rights" that should be paid for by someone else.

The title’s implication is correct for the majority of women. That is why they continually vote for greater state intervention into their lives. And I’m not just sayin’.

I was wondering what kind of guy would want to have sex with Sandra Fluke. Then again, I remember my Army days when I knew of guys who would have sex with a rock pile if they thought there was a snake in it.

I was thinking of something along very similar lines, but you beat me to it.

I wonder if us guys should start demanding the .gov/taxpayers cover their costs for Viagra or other such medicines.

The best way to make sure you don’t get pregnant is to not have sex. But that’s probably too difficult, since she’s insinuating that women too have an insatiable sex appetite that cannot be quelled.

Unlike Abortion Barbie, Sandy was smart enough to head for a location where her philosophy is valued. She passed the California bar exam and is on the November ballot for California senate, finishing in the top two of the primary.

Fluke (rhymes with muck, not puke) is almost batty enough to fill Nanny Pelosi's combat boots when Nanny goes to that big insane asylum in the sky.

...what...? You’re saying if you were a randy young guy, and you didn’t know who she was, or even if you did, you wouldn’t try to hit on her...

...I mean, it’s not like she’s Helen Thomas or anything...

This push to make everything, every perversion, a civil right is going to have some very messy blow back.

Sex is now an entitlement?

Were in our Constitution is there any reference to sexual protection.....? In a free society, choice is a right, not an entitlement from government! Good Grief!!
