Just Because I Can

You've probably already seen this clip on the news, but I don't care. I get riled up when I hear women say they won't vote for Obama because he's supposedly sexist. Well, what the hell is this clip? I wouldn't exactly call this buffoon a feminist.

It's a pretty basic concept - if a company pays for Viagra, they need to pay for birth control pills. I don't care if you're a Republican or a Democrat, that's just basic common sense. If you even have to think about whether that's a fair idea, you're obviously a sexist pig.

There are legitimate medical reasons for women to be on birth control - it's not just about preventing pregnancy. In fact, most of the women I know who take the pill (me included) are on it for a medical reason. Thankfully, it's always been covered by my insurance! I don't think I could work for any other type of company.
