Wow, White Middle-Aged Males Do Not Need Maternity Care.

Dialog of the day from Feministing:

[US Senator John] Kyl: "I don't need maternity care" in my benefits package.
[US Senator Debbie] Stabenow fires back: "I think your mom probably did."




Yeah.. This also shows how incredibly 'valid' the claim was that women/people of color, e.g. "wise Latinas", speak from a heavily biased position but white, Middle-aged men are totally neutral in their thoughts and decisions.

  1. I think this will be valid only for women, which is i believe that they are the only person on earth who needs maternity care. So let's be fair.

    Fair for who though? Why always cater for white, middle class, over 45 men? they do not make up the majority anywhere, they are, however, the loudest voices everywhere, and probably because they could advance up the ladder while their wives and childminders stayed at home taking care of the progeny. And in the long run, I would like to believe that women's health is important enough an agenda to be an issue for women and men.Call me a socialist.
