Just popping in to say that I really did try to work the MSNBC thing in there, but could not figure out a good way to do it. But trust me, I have not forgotten, and it is part of why I will hold a grudge against Chris Matthews until I am dead. :)

The fibers were also tested by the CDC, and were found to be basically just cotton and other kinds of fibers you’d normally find in clothing.

I haven't commented on this site in forever, but this—this I must respond to. Because I honestly thought it was sarcasm before I read your other replies. Read more

They haven't actually decided on it yet, they're just proposing it as a resolution and they won't be voting on it until May 20th.

I once spoiled the "Who shot Mr. Burns?" ending for all of Ireland (Ok, one bar in Ireland). I thought we were playing some kind of nostalgic trivia game, but as it turned out they hadn't gotten to that part yet, and then everyone hated me.

So let me get this straight. In order to make people "healthier", they want to make it harder for them to get... health care?

Given what we've been dealing with concerning Steubenville, and given the amount of people out there who refuse to believe women when they report rapes to the police— what are the odds that a woman who shoots an attempted rapist is going to even be believed?

In the play version, her name is Sandy Dumbrowski. Which also helps the Sandra Dee thing make more sense.

Smoking in high school was incredible. Smoking in the girls room and hoping not to get caught, smoking on "the corner" with the rest of the bad kids during lunch periods, hiding/stealing cigarettes from your parents, smoking in diners while drinking bottomless cups of coffee and writing terrible poetry in a journal Read more

Oh, certainly. There are absolutely other remedies. When I had problems with endometriosis in high school, the first thing they prescribed me was Vicodin! Which, sure, some people take for funsies, but which I found horrifying. So they put me on birth control, which actually helped a bajillion times more. Plus it's Read more

Male condoms are not, but female condoms are, and so are different kinds of spermicide.

Not a question, but might be helpful to some. I spoke to my insurer the other day, and was informed that the following things will now be covered under my plan: All pills, rings, injections, IUD's, Plan B, female condoms, sponges, spermicides, and basically any kind of birth control that is ladies only. I got my Read more

Although they used to say that having the IUD with HPV could cause PID, recent studies are actually showing that having an IUD can actually decrease flare-ups (the rationale being basically that the agitation caused by inserting the device can trigger your immune system or something).

It's up to the insurer whether or not to cover them. I got mine covered, but I can't guarantee it for everyone else. It's best to call and ask.

(Not the Doctor) No, the provision is that *insurance* companies must now cover their services and prescriptions with no co-pay. Basically, you won't have things covered until you get insurance.

Not the doctor, but check with your insurer, because it's going to depend on what their policy is. For instance, I got my Nuvaring for free today (had previously been $70), and that's not a generic, and it was still totally covered by my insurance. My understanding right now is that if there is not a generic version Read more

My insurance provider told me that over the counter things like the sponge, female condoms, and spermicide products would be covered under my plan by the ACA. Which is awesome (because ever since that Seinfeld episode), but how do we get those things for free? Do we just bring them up to the pharmacists counter and Read more

It's not feminism. It's people who need to be constantly offended by shit and just can't take a funny essay for what it is without analyzing it to death. Oy. What is the world coming to?

You have to sign in with your old handle, and then they'll direct you to "sign in through Google or some shit".
