A Moral Objection to Taxpayer Funded Viagra

Digby speaks for a flaming chorus of women who have had it with a male-dominated culture that bends over assbackwards to accommodate every real and imagined need of men while balking at the most basic of services for women:

I have a moral objection to paying for any kind of erectile dysfunction medicine in the new health reform bill and I think men who want to use it should just pay for it out of pocket. After all, I won't ever need such a pill. And anyway, it's no biggie. Just because most of them can get it under their insurance today doesn't mean they shouldn't have it stripped from their coverage in the future because of my moral objections.

And who knew that a 100-count bottle of Viagra goes for $1,457.61?
