First they want to take away insurance coverage of birth control. Then they call us sluts and try to force us to have vaginal sonograms.

MONDAY, April 2 (HealthDay News) — The way that obesity is currently measured greatly underestimates the actual number of women who are obese, a new study suggests.

Almost half of women currently labeled as not obese by virtue of their body mass index (BMI) turned out to be obese when measured by a newer method focusing on their percentage of body fat by weight, the research found.

A cheap and obvious attempt at psychological warfare.

I have always been amused by the freedom with which we "males" comment on the appearance of women. So many "Limbaugh/Roves/Aisles" with their Viagra (covered of course) in case.
