      People who support a candidate do not necessarily share the same opinions as the candidate.

      Watch me use your line of reasoning to reach completely idiotic conclusions:

      "I like Jesus; my tax money goes towards middle eastern wars; Jesus was middle eastern.... ... thus, I like Jesus; I like killing Jesus; and Jesus loves killing Jesus as well"

        Well, you did say that it was idiotic and I can't disagree with you there!

        You never heard of people who vote because their fathers voted that way or because that's what I am, I don't really know what that candidate stands for but he's my party so he gets my vote!

    Oh, geez - that joke sure dates him and labels him, in more ways than one.  That reminds me of the guy who ran for governor here in Texas who cracked an equally crude joke about women.  Look it up - it's still online (no swear words, but it doesn't deserve repeating here).  Fortunately, he lost the election.  Wonder if this guy's comment will affect Santorum's candidacy?

        couturepopcafeposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        Sorry, Mom, gotta disagree with ya on this one. It is always a woman's responsibility and if you tell your daughters differently, you're doing them an injustice.

        It's their responsibility to protect themselves by not having sex with a guy who hasn't been checked out, won't wear a condom, or whatever other route she wants to take. But the bottom line is women bear the children. If you don't want children or abortion, you need to protect yourself.

        Don't ever trust a guy you don't know very well to tell you something regarding this. Find out the facts about him for yourself.

        If more girls were educated in this regard, they might not be so quick to jump into bed with a veritable stranger.

          I agree completely with couturepopcafe.  It's the woman who gets pregnant, so it will ultimately always be her responsibility.

          1. lovemychris profile image80
            lovemychrisposted 5 years ago in reply to this

            So it should be her responsibilty if she wants to abort the fetus....and these people want to take that out of the equation.

            That completely puts a lie to the statement that it's all on the woman. They are telling her no--it's on the state to decide what she will do.

            And THEN the state tells her "You're on your own"...after forcing her to do what they order!

            If you people want to say that it's all the womans responsibilty, you cannot then take choices away from her!

            Because what I hear you saying is a woman decides her sexual life until she gets pregnant....then you take over.

        Nope. The penis tube is the urethra. The one they stick the Foley up when you're in the hospital. Apparently that is not a pleasurable experience for men.

        I think a nice capsule shaped pill would make excellent birth control for Neanderthals like this clown who refer to women as "gals."

      I 've just though of a new forum post. Men who abandon their partners and babies should be forced to work 100 hours per week non paid child care, they must give up their jobs, survive on welfare and if they ever dare to get a woman pregnant again must have a forced vasectomy as a minimum requirement, castration as the max.

              I guess I was taking it metaphorically. People make things far more complicated than they need to be, IMO. Have sex, don't have sex. Who cares. Educate your children and suffer the consequences or reap the satisfaction of your decisions. It's always been that way. We're so much more aware of consequences now thanks to media that this should be a no brainer. Instead it literally turns into not having any brain.

    It was a crude and stupid thing to say that shows how out of touch that whole hearing was with anything approaching reality.  Saying women don't need a pill because they can just say no is right up there with saying we shouldn't take rape seriously because 'a girl can run father with her skirt up than a man can with his trousers down'.

    "My aspirin joke bombed as many didn’t recognize it as a joke but thought it was my prescription for today’s birth control practices," he wrote on "Foster's Campfire Blog," where he posts along with other contributors. "In fact, the only positive comments I got were from folks who remembered it from 50 years back. Birth control pills weren’t yet available, so everyone laughed at the silliness on how an aspirin could become a birth control pill."

    "After listening to the segment tonight, I can understand how I confused people with the way I worded the joke and their taking offense is very understandable," he wrote. "To all those who took my joke as modern day approach I deeply apologize and seek your forgiveness." He noted that his wife didn't like the joke, either.

    "It is always a woman's responsibility and if you tell your daughters differently, you're doing them an injustice."

    And that's why women control sex. It's strictly their decision, protected by law! Otherwise, it's rape and prison, and men know it.

      Women don't always control sex.  They are often pressured or manipulated into it, and unfortunately, not all rapists go to prison.
