    That also wasn't part of her definition, which is what I stated when she defined "slut shaming".

    But whatever, this is getting derailed.
    I posted the transcript in my Previous post.

    I have a hard time understanding why people are still using the word SLUT to degrade girls/woman.

    Why are men considered studs or party guys if they have had a number of parters but women are Sluts if they have had several partners?

    This 60 plus year woman (me) wants to know why there is still a double standard.

    They do that now even without government funds. This is just a solution without a problem.

    And birth control pills has nothing to do with a government function.

    note: I'm assuming that a woman having sex w/o bc is bad behavior, i.e. if you don't have the money for BC pills stay away form men. Sure.
    Again, women can get birth control pills for cheap right this very minute.

    No, it most certainly does not.

    You are confusing the fact that government routinely disobeys the Constitution to a serious degree, with the fallacy that the Constitution allows for these violations.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    In case you didn't notice I pegged men as being slutts too. I don't think the excessive sex with several different people for the purpose of fun is a good thing regardless of gender.

    I've had just about enough of THIS bull****. I suggest you join the developed world as you see it. Please!!!

    Yes it should be covered under a national pharmacare plan.

    It's not exactly a disparaging remark, just a quip regarding how far behind the eight ball we are in this respect. An overwhelming chunk of the developed world have turned to single payer or other publicly funded healthcare systems due to cost concerns. We've held out for this long due to outdated thinking and managing to disregard virtually every empirical study on the subject.

    How cheap is the doctor's visit, script and follow up? (We must have been overcharged.)
