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?
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. SIDEWAYS.
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.
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." Don't you?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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...
