GOB Tampon Commercial on SNL

G.O.B. Tampons: Made For Women by Republican Men

This past weekend's Saturday Night Live made us laugh out loud with its commercial for G.O.B. Tampons, feminine products designed by the people who know women's bodies best: the "gentlemen of the Republican party." The ad lampoons the recent gaffes of male members of the GOP in regards to women's health, notably Todd Akin's remarks that "legitimate rape" victims can't get pregnant. But as ridiculous as the skit seems, it highlights the fact that the majority of our country's lawmakers making decisions about women's bodies are men — such as when earlier this year, Congress convened a panel on contraception that didn't include a single woman.

So watch the faux commercial now, and let's make sure there never comes a day when 60-plus-year-old conservative men design tampons that insert into our butts.
