“Hosurance” Reveals Left’s Disrespect for Women

Like many of you, I find the sexually suggestive advertisement by ProgressNow Colorado and the Colorado Consumer Health Initiative (which has gained national attention) stupid and disgusting. Also like many of you, I initially thought it was a parody, as did many people on both sides of the political spectrum. Many thought it was a GOP tactic intended to ridicule Obamacare.

Rep. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.), who was actually my representative until they redistricted and stuck us with a communist homosexual, said the ad is “degrading to women, and it says a lot about what they think of America’s youth today.”

Indeed. And though the paternalism will be lost on the dullards targeted by the ad, it is undeniably demeaning to women.

The new ad campaign follows an earlier intellectually-retarded campaign (which also gained national attention); dubbed “Brosurance,” it featured college-age future alcoholic young men doing keg stands. “Hosurance” features a young woman holding a packet of birth control pills, while a stud (I guess) stands next to her with his arm around her waist. A caption reads: “OMG, he’s hot! Let’s hope he’s as easy to get as this birth control. My health insurance covers the pill, which means all I have to worry about is getting him between the covers.”

That’s right; that’s just what we need: Conveying the idea that twentysomething women just can’t wait for the next  stiff one – or that they should harbor that attitude, if they currently do not. And if they do happen to get pregnant, they can just get that sucker scraped, gratis – care of the taxpayer!

Amy Runyon-Harms, director of ProgressNow Colorado, told the Denver Post that the point of the ads is to “raise awareness, and that’s what we’re doing.”

I simply love how the left frames so much of the bilge and poison they purvey as being necessary to raise awareness. It’s the same reasoning they use for teaching the nuances of homosexual acts, vegetable sex, and fisting to grade-school kids.
