So the argument goes: birth control is a women’s issue. It’s a woman’s body, a woman’s right to choose, a woman’s health concerns. The Jezebel bloggers even go so far as to point out that the recent Hobby Lobby decision was cast by all men, and that all the female Supremes dissented.

Men are asked not to have an opinion because, after all, this issue is only for women.

These men are Supreme Court justices! They have a right to comment on anything pertaining to the Constitution; they have an obligation to hear cases and to rule according to our nation’s principles. It is absurd to assume that only women’s votes should have counted on this matter.

I’m going to exercise my passive-aggressive sarcasm muscle for a moment. So here’s a list of other things people shouldn’t comment on, because they are not part of the group it affects:

1)     Anyone not currently in school should not be commenting on education standards. So much for the PTA., so much for teacher meetings, and who cares what the Department of Education thinks. Really, parents: please stop asking your kids if they’ve completed their homework.

2)     If you do not live in the Antarctic region, please stop commenting on the trouble penguins are experiencing during climate change. In fact, maybe people shouldn’t be commenting on penguins’ hardships at all—leave that to the birds.

3)     White people should not teach black history. They should not listen to jazz, hip-hop, or rock-n-roll. They’re prohibited from eating soul food.

4)     Bald people should not judge others based on their hairstyle.  In fact, preferably, they should not even be allowed into the shampoo aisle at the store.

5)     People who don’t make movies, who don’t direct, act, write, or produce, should refrain from making judgments as to the quality of movies. You should be expected to pay for the newest Michael Bay flick, without rating it. Enjoy all content equally.

If women don't want me to comment on birth control, they should stop asking me to pay for it.

If it was men that had the babies, then abortion would be -

- a capital crime.

So if I'm a white, bald, non-white-collar professional, non-fry chef from Antarctica, who doesn't make movies and walks everywhere, I am basically screwed.

I hate it when that happens.

There are no free contraceptive drugs. The mandate means that every employee, male or female, ends up paying the tab for others who choose to use these drugs.

I have never in my life blindfolded myself and walked across the freeway backwards.
I still think it's a bad idea.

Thank you thank you thank you,
It was a loud bell sounding off for me and bugged me to death all during the time Congress was having hearings and testimony from religious groups during Obamacare and Fluke had her 15 minutes of lies.

"...until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes..." or on their blades.

...or as I've always heard it, "Don't judge someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes. That way, if they don't like what you have to say about them, they're barefoot and a mile away."

Likewise, then, those who do not pay income taxes should have no say in how those taxes get spent....

I've been told that I have no right to an opinion on abortion. OK, then. A politician's stand on abortion is now completely irrelevant to me. I instead pay attention to his or her stand on Obamacare, immigration, Benghazi, free speech, campaign finance reform, environmental regulations, and a dozen other issues. This works out just fine for me.

I call big BS on "access"....

Yeah, and the penguins are threatened by what? According to the most recent studies, the sea ice in the Antarctic has reached record levels. How does that threaten the penguins? Oh, wait, they have to walk farther from their rookeries to reach the open sea.

They certainly do not want the father of any baby to have any say over whether it is born or not.
