Here we go again. Yet another instance of women legislators legislating men's health choices, further subjugating an already oppressed minority of the population: well-to-do older men with trophy mistresses…
Before getting a prescription for Viagra or other erectile dysfunction drugs, men would have to see a sex therapist, receive a cardiac stress test and get a notarized affidavit signed by a sexual partner affirming impotency, if [Ohio] state Sen. Nina Turner has her way…
A critic of efforts to restrict abortion and contraception for women, Turner says she is concerned about men’s reproductive health. Turner’s bill joins a trend of female lawmakers submitting bills regulating men’s health. Turner said if state policymakers want to legislate women’s health choices through measures such as House Bill 125, known as the "Heartbeat bill," they should also be able to legislate men's reproductive health.
Ohio anti-abortion advocates say the two can’t be compared.
Agreed! Totally not comparable! One affects women, and the other affects regular people.
I'll tell you something. I think that the vital importance of drugs like Viagra are lost on these women legislators. They don't know what it's like to not be able to get an erection. How a thing like that can affect, not just your well-being in the here-and-now, but the rest of your life.
The choice to take Viagra or not should not be legislated by a bunch of women. It should be a private matter between a man and his boner.
