At my company, we do pay more. Annual exams are 100% covered for men, but only 80% covered for women in our insurance plan. My HR woman is super scary so I haven't had the gall to ask her why this is.

". . .for a dry-cleaned shirt?"

My picketing against men paying more for car insurance hasn't made a difference either. It's like actuarial science, or physics, or something.

ugh THIS GUY. Last year during the bailout debate he got up and asked why he couldn't see the credit crisis happening on TV, like he could watch the stock market. Barney Frank explained what LIBOR was. I gave Pete credit at the time for having the nuts to ask the stupid question. Now can we cut them out?

obviously no one ever told sessions that you always pay for the vagina.
