    ...I can't find anything to link to; I've been looking since Monday.

    I was watching this on TV at work, kind of hit-and-miss style, because I was busy - I think it was on MSNBC, but I'm not positive.

    A panel discussion was taking place, and among several and sundry topics was the new male contraceptive pill (apparently just released?) which works as you think it would, but like Viagra - one pill per event.

    The panel was moderated by a woman, and included two other women and two men.

    I just heard enough to get the general "thrust" of the conversation, and then one of the women said (I kid you not), "I don't think this pill should be available, after all, why should women have to give up their last vestige of control over their reproductive rights?

    Just then I had to leave the gatehouse to direct some traffic.

    I hate to say it, but I was momentarily flummoxed.

    Fixed

    I didn't know it has been "released" yet. I sure won't be taking any anytime soon. It's too new.

    It's weird also that it gives a raging hard-on as well. I wonder will there be a pill sans the perpetual wood.

    I wouldn't wanna mess anything up with how my package works now.

    Oh come on kev................you want us to believe you would allow the sound from msnbc to enter your ears?

    It does sound a very odd thing to say. I wonder what the context was that went with it. She could have been thinking about a man in a marriage taking it against the wife's wishes. Some surgeons won't perform a vasectomy on a married man without the wifes consent, could she have been talking in that type of context.
    Was she anti-contraception or just against this pill. I mean usually pro reproductive rights people are pro all forms of contraception. Was she against men wearing condoms?

    Even so.........she is wrong to say it shouldn't be available.

    Have you been over to the website to look at the transcripts? That said it doesn't sound like that channel. What time of day was it? the female host is making me think it was on a different station. I can't stand rita crosby's voice so I could tell you format of her show.

    it’s an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    The comment, as best I could discern, was a stand-alone in the discussion.

    How should the context you mention validate a wife's "reproductive rights" over the husband's?

    I find it very strange that a doctor could refuse to provide a vasectomy "without the wife's consent".

    Men have medical confidentiality as well, don't they?

    I am aware a woman can have an abortion absent the husband's knowledge, much less consent.

    As to the broadcast, it was early afternoon, EST...post-noon, in any case.

    It's one of those "personal moral issue" things as opposed to a legal requirement.
    It happens.

    That's a link to an article about the pill itself. As for the comment by that woman, I didn't even see the programme, and I'm flummoxed.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    There is probably a reason why it her comment was removed off of the face of the earth.

    One hears that they can be had in Mexico.

    J2 is the CEO of the corporation, actually.

    Thanks for the help, Bob.

    BTW-

    ram-person - your post is rife with under-spellings.

    Please mend your ways if you are going to continue with your efforts to communicate in here, rather than the lounge.

    Think assimilation; after all, we are discussing the problems of the world, not which brand and flavor of chewing gum you prefer.

    Acronymics are fine, what you do is....not.
