The GOP is calling women 'sluts' again. Now Democrats better do something (BARFER)
The Guardian ^ | July 10 2014 | Jessica Valenti

Posted on 07/10/2014 8:38:40 AM PDT by PoloSec

It hasn't even been two weeks since the US supreme court's Hobby Lobby decision – a depressing reminder of how regressive America remains on issues of gender and sexuality – and already Democrats are firing the first shots in what's sure to be a new front in 2014's definitive battle for women's votes.

This week, Senators Mark Udall (D-CO) and Patty Murray (D-WA) have outlined legislation that would bar employers from banning coverage for contraception – essentially overturning the Hobby Lobby ruling. After a Senate vote as early as next week, any such bill is sure to fail in the Republican-controlled House. Then comes the real test: Are Democrats willing to work on women's health with the same vigor with which they've so quickly revived it as a political issue?

The GOP is digging an even deeper hole with women than they did in 2012: denying women access to birth control is almost certainly going to be the Republicans' legacy of idiocy heading into 2016, especially given that, at any given time, about 25% of reproductive-age women are using hormonal contraceptives or intrauterine devices, the two methods at issue in the case. (Studies show that 88% of women will use one of those methods of birth control in their lifetimes.)

Democrats aren't wasting any time making sure that the GOP's anti-contraception reputation sticks. Udall – whose Colorado seat is seen as vulnerable – said in a statement that "women should never have to ask their bosses for a permission slip to access common forms of birth control or other critical health services". Murray said, "I hope Republicans will join us to revoke this court-issued license to discriminate and return the right of Americans to make their own decisions, about their own health care and their own bodies." Sure she does.

One major difference between liberal communists (aka) democrats and republicans, is the dems never ever surrender no matter what they fight until they win.

Republicans they are just kind of there, quietly, passively observing.

If we don't get conservatives in Federal Gov't soon, good folks who know how and are willing to fight, well...the writing is on the wall comrade!

They already have. They don't want you to say the word "bossy."

Bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy, bossy

Sorry, but if it's politically incorrect, I'm compelled to do it. Carry on.

What Jessica Valenti is saying is that she has a right to unprotected sex and to kill her child afterward and has the right to make others fund it. I think that qualifies her for a Stupid Bimbo Award.

The continuing big LIE is that Republicans are trying to deny women contraceptives/birth control. The Democrats are trying to twistthe Hobby Lobby decisiion in a way that it is denying women contraceptives. Even Hillary attempted to promote that lie. Nothing could be further from the truth. First of all, Hobby Lobby still provides 16 or the 20 contraceptives mandated by Obamacare. Secondly, women are free to go buy the other 4 on the open market. The decision just states that Hobby Lobby doesn’t have to subsidize their purchase. The truth doesn’t fit the Democrat narrative of “The War on Women”, so they will continue to try and convince women of their lies. Unfortunately, the “low information voting women” will buy into the lie.

Leftists are increasingly unhinged because their party officially promotes and celebrates it.

Democrat party congressional candidate Mike Dickenson (VA) is calling Kendall Jones “scum,” “garbage” and “john gacy” on twitter.

Who has denied women access to birth control?

Denying women access to birth control? It’s readily available. The truth doesn’t stop the faithful flock.

denying women access to birth control

Liberal women must be incompetent retards, as well as sluts!

How amazingly inept and pathetic must a woman be to believe she can not obtain birth control unless someone else pays for it?

Hobby Lobby PAYS for 16 forms of birth control, and denies access to NONE. Jessica is so full of herself there’s no room left for a brain.

I don't even call Sandra Fluke a slut. I say she is trying to make us pay for her rampant fornication (albeit, not with several partners).

Sandra Fluke is preaching according to that well established Marxist principle of

from each according to his ability
to each according to her nymphomania.

That principle is probably found in "The Communist Manifesto" itself!

I see condoms for sale, cheap, everywhere I go, drugstores, groceries and Costco's. They're even given away free at schools and welfare offices. Is not having them delivered for free by Fed-Ex denial?

That actually sounds like a good business idea; discreetly delivering birth control to a post office box and no one is the wiser. Would be a thriving industry in fact.

This core truth needs to be proclaimed, and loudly.

For the left, the core issue isn’t about “access to birth control”,

the core issue is

FORCING CHRISTIANS TO PAY FOR ABORTION

See 18 for the explanation of what the left is up to with this issue.

I am wondering if the Supreme Court did not rule that way in order to foment all this war on women crap before the election. The media is doing its part by not differentiating between contraception and abortifacients.

It’s truly strange times we find ourselves in isn’t it?

The very thought that someone could suggest that it’s the employers’ *responsibility*, not just perk, but *responsibility* to provide any and all forms of birth control to their female employees, is ludicrous. Not even 20 years ago this thought never would have crossed any pol’s mind as a possible campaign strategy.

But here we are today. This society has become so perverse in its values and so crippled in its ability to critically think, I don’t know if we can ever come back.

Health *benefits* from an employer are just that *benefits*. They aren’t “rights”. Sheesh!!! They are part of a *compensation package*. They are part of one’s salary!

The following is a perfect example of this inanity: “My employer won’t buy my lunch at my lunch break. He’s denying me access to food”.

It’s outrageous, fallacious and dangerous to be even entertaining this tom foolish buggery!

What’s next, people are going to start saying, “How dare employers deny people access to money”?

Becaise that’s *exactly* how ludicrous this notion is, for the exact same reason!!!

That’s lame. It’s not like the GOP finally hired Eminem for campaign songs.

I'm not so sure. Lying seems to be a right of passage proving you have
no morals or obey any God. A lefty limpness test.
