    But it is a big fat buts for women's rights.  This is nothing short of sexism, and it hurts all women.  The reality is that the vast majority of people who have serious migraines are women and they are hormonal.  Both my wife and daughter have them.  It's really unpleasant to see.  But I'm here to tell you that they work through them, both of them do.  This is just another example of the old-white-Southern-Boy domination and prejudice of the "Republican" Party of today.  We should be condemning this attack in the most vigorous terms and there are millions of women who get these headaches and still manage to function.  Hell, when my wife (a Democrat) saw this stuff on this morning's news, whe said she would think about voting for Bachman just to show the old boys a thing or two.
