Sen. Boxer dislikes double standards  

THANK YOU, Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), for calling out the fact that women's access to health care and reproductive services is constantly under attack, yet the medicines (i.e. Viagra) and procedures that men use are not put in this same political position. Double standards. Story of our lives, ain't it? IMO, it all goes back to society trying to control a woman's sexuality. Why are birth control rights threatened incessantly, yet condoms seem almost impervious to the same assaults? Because men are allowed to be sexually free, and we're not.

Take a moment to contact Senator Boxer and thank her for her wise words. It's not easy being a feminist in Washington.

What next?

    That's my Senator!

    Now if only we could replace Feinstein with Eshoo, we'd be set here on the west coast.

    I think that it’s great someone is standing up for women’s rights here. The point that she makes about there being no legislation or debate about men’s reproductive health is totally true. And when put out into the light like that hopefully it will make everyone see how ridiculous this double standard is. And that a women should be making decisions about her body not the White House.
