Alright…I don’t have a dick issue. I mean, perhaps I do.
BUT, not like that. I don’t draw a line in the sands of gender according to whether someone has a penis or breasts. Health insurance companies are apparently not so unbiased. You see, I watch too much late night TV. I don’t know why they always put the penis pumps, dick pills, and “male enhancement” commercials on then…really, I know exactly why….but after you see these commercials so many times it is enough to make you want to run screaming from the room just by shear stupidity.
Do they really think that a woman buying “male enhancement” for her partner is going to make his dick hard? Ummm…nope. That is like a man saying, “Of course your ass looks fat in those pants!” Game called on account of cold.
None the less, I found out something that really pisses me off. Apparently, health insurance companies cover penis pumps and “male enhancement” drugs (yes, Viagra included…even though it is not an enhancement drug!). Ok. Don’t get me wrong. I want everyone to have sex. Lots and really great sex.
However, does it piss anyone else off that in November I had to pay for my own breast cancer test because, even though my doctor said it was not an optional procedure, the insurance company covered zero. Out of four visits that costs thousands of dollars, they did me the favor of saying I was under 40 and not within the age group considered at risk. So, having the procedure would be elective and out of pocket.
Now, I am balancing up the score card. Limp dick vs. rapidly spreading cancer that might cause death or the loss of a major body part. I am really not seeing ED (erectile dysfunction) as that big of a deal in that light. Millions of women suffer the double pain of an insurance system that values a hard dick over a life threatening disease that ravages parts of their sexual being and takes their life without pity. I know, a little blue pill is cheaper than a double mastectomy with months of radiation. The incomparable loss of a wife, mother, daughter, or sister to breast cancer….again having a harder dick.
No, I dont have a dick issue. I am just deeply morally offended. ~~Dee
