WATCH: Santorum backer Friess suggests "aspirin between their knees" as contraception http://tpm.ly/xHSYJj
wow is right! i don't think there is anything else to say...
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!
Actually, I have heard of that.
... were you trying to refute my point?
... so you think that someone who supports you shares all of your opinions?
Intriguing. It's like, reverse identity theft.
wait... not intriguing...
...what's the word I'm looking for?
Oh yeah! Ludicrous.
It's an old joke that goes all the way back to the introduction of The Pill.
Well darn...us young gals missed that one.
Hey freeze...you want a viagra pill? guvmint pays!! It's free. Oh--you want me to have a baby but you don't want to help take care of it???
Why here in capitalist-land we call that a bad deal. Non-Negotiable. Out Of The Question.
Far be it from me to suggest that an apirin might be too big to offer much in the way of protection if your partner is a Republican...
I feel exactly how the interviewer feels...trying to catch my breath after his comment...
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?
In THAT party??
They held a hearing today on birth control and didn't invite any women members of Congress!!!
"lying conservative half wits: you can't have smaller government and then stick the government up women's v*gin*s to check for zygotes."
She's running for prez on the Green Party ticket.
"the crux of my campaign-to rid america of rule by 1%"
"If Virginia fetuses are people, then they're entitled to CHILD SUPPORT FROM CONCEPTION!"
keep tellin ya...you'd better just vasectomize the boys...it'd be cheaper
Since you DO want to prevent abortion...right?
What a quaint idea!
Gals holding their knees together with aspirin.
Just love how it's always the women's responsibility.
Here's a "modern" update for ya, Mr. Santorum supporter:
Take that aspirin and stick it up your urethra.
And I don't mean those puny little low dose Bayers, neither.
I mean a big old Excedrin Migraine Strength horsepill.
Yeah Mighty Mom! You tell em! I definitely agree.
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.
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.
Ha! You didn't think we knew what "Urethra" meant, didja MM! That's what the old Greek dude yelled out when he finally found the soap in the bathtub! Geesh, try and make us look dumb again, willya!
(stay tuned for a new serpentine emblem)
Truth be told, Randy, I had to look up the term.
I thought it was the vas defrens.
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.
Believe it or not, in my teenage years we were told to put an Uncle Joe's mint ball between our knees. I was very skinny back then, which is why it invariably always dropped to the floor.
I'm sorry to be crude but anybody who thinks a woman with her knees tightly together is "safe" is sadly delusional.
Omg, I'm visualising things I rather wouldn't.
Why John? That's actually the safest route. I don't see your point.
It is possible to have sex with ones legs together, hell you can have your legs technically crossed and still have sex. Reading the post in a very literal sense knees together isn't fool proof as the spoon position usually has knees together
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.
Yeh..and then if he needs medical help for the pain....we'll deny it to him.
Because you know....aspirin is against my religion. God should heal. Ergo...no one gets pain killers anymore.
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.

Thanks for posting this. It just proves there's no room for humor in politics.
Oh, now I get it.... I thought the pill between the knees was the poor man's version the thigh master workout.....
Hello, is thing on?
"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.
I can't believe Santorum is rising in the GOP polls. He's exactly what we DON'T need - a fiscal liberal and a social (extreme) conservative. I don't want to elect a preacher as POTUS. I much prefer a fiscal conservative and social moderate.
What century is this? Did I get transported back to 1912?
Why Patriarchal Men are Utterly Petrified of Birth Control and Why We Will Still be Fighting About it 100 Years from Now
I remember the joke. When The Pill first came out, the joke was:
"An aspirin works just as well as The Pill."
"Yeah!. You just hold it between your knees!"
I heard it from a woman, but I guess we had a sense of humor back then.
Even though this is a serious issue and portrays how little respect women command at the hands of those who seek to control them (us), just had to inject some humor targeting them, for a change...
And yes, I laughed at the thought of Freiss and having a gun collection!
"After week dominated by women's health issues, Sunday show guests are 100% male"
Trying to get this song as sung by that English young woman-she sings barefoot--...but I can't think of her name! arggh
"For the record, the #TSA groping and #Virginia transvaginal probes are all in the same pile of shaming and violating citizens."
Haha yeah I saw this when it first happened. What a crazy man...
Rosanne's politcal speech...
Makes me laugh. And cry.

Do you believe that the government has a right to allow planned parenthood to open health care cliniThis will mean our children will be given birth control and abortions without parental consent or knowledge.
by Jackie Lynnley 4 years ago
I read this was true and I just have to know if it is, please! Please provide links to prove what you say. Surely we are not going to be aborting babies ready to come into the world fully developed and healthy?

The FDA wants Plan B contraception to be available to women/girls of "childbearing age" without a prescription.I mean hey, you can get condoms at the drug store (or dispensaries in any bar restroom). Why not back-up contraception?But today Obama nixed that idea.My opinion on this may...

I think it is due to the erosion of families. Mothers no longer stay home with their young children, and fathers are no where to be seen in a large percentage of families. The kids don't have a father figure, and I think this leads to joining gangs, dropping out of school, and criminal behavior. Am...
