Women just can't control themselves :D


Mike Huckabee: Democrats Tell Women 'They Cannot Control Their Libido' Without The Governmenthttp://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/01/23/mike-huckabee-women_n_4653426.html

WASHINGTON -- Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) is so fed up with the anti-Republican "War on Women" narrative that he went on a rant Thursday, accusing Democrats of trying to convince women they need the government to help them "control their libidos."

"Our party stands for the recognition of the equality of women and the capacity of women," Huckabee told his audience at the Republican National Committee's winter meeting in downtown Washington. "That's not a war on them. It's a war for them. And if the Democrats want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing for them a prescription each month for birth control, because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it."

Huckabee, a former preacher and 2008 Republican presidential candidate, was referring to the provision of the Affordable Care Act that requires most employers to cover the full range of contraception in their health insurance plans. Many Republicans argue that employers should be allowed to refuse to provide such coverage on moral grounds, and conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh called one women's health activist a "slut" for advocating for contraception coverage.

Huckabee told GOP leaders on Thursday that women are "outraged" when Democrats paint them as nothing but "victims of their gender."

Wooee, Mama!

BTW, how many examples do we need before we admit that Religion must stay out of Government. Pick one - and _stay_ there!

Mike Huckabee mansplains women's libidos and contraception at RNC

Oh dear. Not again.
Here’s a remedial lesson for Gov. Huckabee: That is not what Democrats tell women; it’s what Republicans tell them.
Republicans call women “sluts” because women tell Congress they want access to insurance-covered contraception.
Republicans talk about “legitimate rape.”
Republicans say pregnancies as a result of rape are a “gift from God” and should be carried to term.
Republicans say: “One of the things I will talk about that no president has talked about is, I think, the dangers of contraceptives in this country. The whole sexual libertine idea. Many in the Christian faith have said, 'Contraception's OK.' It is not OK.”
Democrats know that invoking women’s sex drives in conversations about healthcare mandates is demeaning, patronizing and wrong.
What Democrats tell women is that women have the right to comprehensive health coverage, which should include access to contraception -- even if you work at Hobby Lobby.
I don’t really want to get inside their heads too far, but Republicans like Huckabee seem metaphorically stuck in some arrested stage of adolescent development that equates any discussion of reproductive issues with sexuality. Contraception? Hubba hubba. Not.

Why stop at contraceptives? How 'bout we get 'em a motel room, a couple a beers, some cigarettes, and a video? After all, we're just borrowing the money from China.

Oh yeah, coming out of the woodwork

mdh from Oklahoma apparently doesn't realize that covering birth control under insurance actually saves money, which is why the insurance companies are all in favor. It's way cheaper than unintended pregnancy. Reduces abortions, too.

Unless he's being sarcastic; it's getting hard to tell sometimes.

Women who are legitimately raped rarely get pregnant either, the body has a way of shutting itself down, so I've heard.

So what are you some kinda holy roller who would never touch your wife on days she could get pregnant or you just use her for a baby maker? No wonder they call us stupid Okies.

Huckabee is probably very proud of himself for not mentioning anything about Rape vs Legitimate Rape. In his mind, he did a really good job.

Huckabee's rhetoric is bizarre. Is he saying women are sluts without birth control? Insurance providers are pimps or creepy uncles? Maybe there's a scripture footnote explaining his references.

Of course "birth control" is only used to stop conception, has absolutely no other medical purpose for women. It must be nice to be a Republican who understands women so well.

Yet, for some strange reason, there are women who are Republican.

You can't make this stuff up. :D In 2005, Governor Mike Huckabee signed a law mandating that all insurance plans in Arkansas provide contraception coverage, (source (http://www.arktimes.com/ArkansasBlog/archives/2012/02/15/huckabee-for-contraception-mandate-before-he-opposed-it)) including church-affiliated organizations such as hospitals and universities, although churches as such are exempt.

Here's the relevant language from the law:


Every health benefit policy that is delivered, issued, executed, or renewed in this state or approved for issuance or renewal in this state by the Insurance Commissioner on or after the effective date of this subchapter that provides coverage for prescription drugs on an outpatient basis shall provide coverage for prescribed drugs or devices approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration for use as a contraceptive.And the narrow religious exemption:


"Religious employer" means an entity
(A) That is organized and operated for religious purposes and has received a 501(c)(3) designation from the Internal Revenue Service;
(B) That has as one of its primary purposes the inculcation of religious values; and
(C) That employs primarily persons who share its religious tenets

I was thinking about why they don't submit legislation making it illegal to have children outside of marriage.

Never underestimate the ability of the far right to step on their shlongs. 51% of the population of this country doesn't have one and they won't be happy until they alienate every last female.

I don't understand.

What if contraception WERE the only use?

Would that make this idiot's position acceptable, or merely logically consistent?

Of course not. The real problem is the use of birth control is a medical decision between a doctor and patient. It's not the business of government to know why it's being prescribed by a licensed physician. What's next "Birth Panels"?

Actually birth control pills are also used for other purposes, such as treating problems arising from regulating menstrual periods. I know someone who takes a form of birth control pill for exactly that reason. She's a lesbian so she has no need to stop conception.

He gets it.

My own comment was aimed more at questioning why it makes any difference! As bogdog so ably responded, it doesn't.

What passes between a doctor and her patient ain' nobody's business but their own.

that was a sexist assuming the doc is female, why can't men be docs?

We're not doing contraceptives in their interest; we're doing it in our interest. You think we're indulging them and insist that we indulge consistently. If we are indulging them or we aren't doesn't matter. What matters is that it's in our interest.

It's not the amount of government, but the "job" of government they concern themselves with. They want LESS government involvement in making sure the workplace is safe, companies don't dump toxic waste into our water, etc. Note Fracking is excluded from clean water regulations.

Meanwhile, they want the government involved to make everyone comply to their religious beliefs even though, as I've seen first hand, they don't live by these beliefs.

Last I looked, it took two people to have intercourse. Why they seem to expect only the female should control her desires is interesting, and telling. Perhaps someone should offer up a piece of legislation making it illegal to father a child with a woman to whom you are not married.
