What women hear: “I miss the days when good women baked cakes while we blew our loads on hookers.”

“The hearing is not about reproductive rights and contraception but instead about the Administration’s actions as they relate to freedom of religion.” – Chairman Darrell Isa

What women hear: “We know that women’s rights are ‘a thing’ but we feel that making sure the dominant religion controlling the government retains the narrative of ‘being oppressed’ so that we Christian, white, straight males can pretend to know what it’s like!”

“One of the things I will talk about, that no president has talked about before, is I think the dangers of contraception in this country.” – Rick Santorum

What women hear: “I am trying so desperately to appeal to an evangelical base of voters that I’m willing to totally throw a historically repressed gender under the bus.”

“In its present state, the health care bill is an affront to my religious freedoms.” – Carlos Bilbao
