    This is directly from the article:
    Oh so a guy said a discussion involving birth control for women doesn't concern women.... well then. That makes it not about women for sure.

    Are you unwilling or unable to have an honest intelligent discussion?

    Are you being intentionally obtuse? The hearing is not about birth control for women, but rather about what the government can require of religious institutions within the confines of the constitutionally granted separation of church and state.

    Should I type it in all caps? Bigger font? What do you need to help with your reading comprehension?

    When you acknowledge the facts get back to me on that.

    Oh so it just happens to be about birth control for women, but that's not important. Thanks for the clarification. Is that like how the discussions pre civil war weren't about slavery but about Property rights. It just so happened that the property in question were people held as slaves so their opinion wasn't really relevant?

    lets just have an honest intelligent discussion.

    Discussions that involve women should include women. That is common sense.

    Why does it bother you so much to expect some sort of representation - to at least get a bigger picture of the subject at hand? To me it's only logical ot want to hear ALL sides of the story: as much variation and as many different views as possible - not just *one* single opinion.

    Talk to a woman about what birth control enables her to do and talk to a man about what birth control enables him to do and you'll get different answers and a more well rounded and in depth discussion.

    You cannot engage only one and think you're getting hte full picture.

    this hearing is not about women, it is about whether or not legislation violates separation of church and state and/or threatens religious freedom.

    Personally? I think the entire issues is manufactured nonsense because the hearing has nothing to do with women. It has to do with whether or not the administration is violating protections issues to religious institutions. When it becomes about women, get all outragey and upset if they aren't included. Until that time, this is a stupid issue.
