The More We Know . . .

. . . the more absurd she becomes

Sandra Fluke, Gender Reassignment, and Health Insurance | MRCTV.

I predict that it will not be long until most of the Left are doing all they can to distance themselves from Ms. Fluke. They have over played their hand in spectacular fashion.

    I have seen nothing damning in this article or in the links in that article. It is not uncommon for people to go into graduate school several years after graduating undergrad. It is extremely common for people to be part of many clubs while their in school and a great many of those are usually centered around some type of cultural identity, which in this case happens to be women’s rights (can you blame a girl for wanting to fight for her rights?). Lastly, she did not go to congress to even advocate for contraception, but for the non-contraception uses of birth control.

    I don’t see how being a women’s rights advocate on campus suddenly makes her a anything other that a typically college student.

      Nettle:
      You failed to address the meat of the column regarding Ms. Fluke’s stand on sex change surgery. I think it is beyond absurd that this type of elective surgery should be provided by any health care insurance policy or that any private company should be sued if they refuse to provide this coverage as part of the benefits they provide. This appears to be Ms. Fluke’s position which is what I find to be so absurd. The other details that you did address are minor but go to the point that this women was not truthfully represented by the people who put her up to this testimony or the Media which seems all too willing to push the DNC narrative which is to use this straw man of contraception and “reproductive rights” to misdirect the voter’s attention from the multiple failings of the current Administration.

        I apologize for that. I got caught up in trying to read as many links in the article you linked that I forgot to address the main issue!

        That is indeed what he stance seems to be. She seems to think that the long-term well being of a transgendered person depends on full gender reassignment. Yet, I don’t see what is disingenuous about the situation. She is not going in front of congress advocating for such policies. I find the dissection of this woman’s past to be a red herring. Instead of taking her testimony at its own merit, good merits I will add, there seems to be a campaign to discredit her. The fact still remains that there are serious and credible uses for birth control outside of contraception. Birth control is one of the best treatments available to women for conditions like endometriosis and ovarian cysts. You may find her stance on gender reassignment absurd, but is her trying to point out these facts absurd?

        I will agree with you that there is an effort on both sides to skew the conversation and misdirect people’s attention. I would say that both sides are equally guilty in this, though.

        I appreciate you engaging in a civilized conversation with me on this!

    I would also like to make it clear that I do not post on your blog to start an argument with you or anything like that. You seem like a sensible person and I just wanted to jump start a discourse on the subject with you.
