In an article Fluck cowrote with Karen Ho in the Georgetown Journal of Gender Law, she writes "Transgender persons wishing to undergo the gender reassignment process frequently face heterosexist employer health insurance policies that label the surgery as cosmetic or medically unnecessary and therefore uncovered."
Okay, so now we have a new word that applies to health insurance: HETEROSEXIST. Learn it
Nope, not gonna even consider it a valid word until the other side learns the word heterophobia and places it in the dictionary alongside all those liberal-coined re-definitions.
And thanks for the info. Looks like Fluke's real agenda is being revealed.
Not a new word:
Heterophobia, on the other hand, doesn't exist:
What about brain transplants? Check into it.
So, now it is your mission to attack everything the woman has ever said just because Rush insulted her?
Wow, the woman has opinions that differs from you... how dare she?
I think Rosanne speaks for a lot of Americans:
"i refuse to STOOP DOWN far enough to debate any republican candidate."
THIS is their idea of being a human being:
"Patricia Heaton was having her Twitter Fans send condoms to Fluke over her testimony on womans health care"
This woman, who has fakeness all over her body?? Gender reasignment? How about buying new body parts to make yourself look sexy?
And then WE have to pay for the viagra of her boyfriends!

I have the latest issue in my bathroom.
Doesn't every good heterosexist?
As a pre-op transsexual in Australia, I have to have private health cover to have my gender corrective surgery in my own country. Our Labour (Socialist) Government has just made it harder for regular working class people to be able to afford this.
Now my best (only?) option is to travel to Singapore where I can have the surgery done at a cheaper price for the same quality result.
She argues she wants the government involved in getting her birth control pills paid for. She would be the same one that argues to keep the government out of her bedroom. And, if she got pregnant, it is her body, and she will decide if she will have an abortion. The government should keep their nose out of her business.
Is there some reason you are picking on birth control? Cause you do know insurance pays for a lot of healh coverage. Why do you have a problem with birth control?
Thank you. I don't want a sex change, don't know any one who does, but it seems like this would fall in the category of Elective Surgery. Should we also pay for facelifts and tummy tucks?
I find the double standard interesting:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/0 … d%3D141460
I don't condone the use of derogatory words against females, but I find it interesting that RFK's allusion to one woman being a prostitute is being virtually ignored, but when Rush does it--- it makes me wonder, is than issue about something that is truly offensive to women everywhere? Or is this just a smear campaign on one political party?
140 COMPANIES DROP LIMBAUGH-he may be "dead meat!" Let's hope so.
ThinkProgress has obtained an internal memo from Premiere Radio Networks listing 96 national companies that have “specifically asked” their advertisments not be played during the Rush Limbaugh Show. Premiere is the distributor of Limbaugh’s program. The advertisers have also requested to be excluded from other right-wing hosts including Michael Savage, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity. According to the memo, the listed companies’ advertisements should be excluded from these programs because they have been “deemed to be offensive.”

Is it a good idea to have Sandra Fluke speak at the Democratic Convention?She is a walking joke. The 30-year-old law student who can't pay for her own birth control, can't get her rich boyfriend to pay for it, but wants everyone else to pay for it. LOL!
