Female Viagra

A couple of days ago I found an article on the BBC about Viagra for women.
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/8363743.stm

Since the final comment by one of the discoverers was really bothering me I posted the link at the Confluence. One person responded and she didn’t “get” it either.

This is what bothered me:

“This research is really quite exciting for women with loving partners whose loss of libido is a physical thing. But it is not going to fix a broken relationship or help with looking after the kids or cleaning the house.”

When Senator Dole hit the airwaves bragging about his improved performance — did anyone ask if it helped him clean the damned house???

Double standards — oh and that dismissive and sexist quote regarding the female Viagra was by a woman.
