Asinine story of the day....

Women in a Toyota autoworker's union in Australia are seeking 12 extra days of sick leave a year to be designated "menstrual leave." Apparently they think they are special and so they get to have some extra days off while every other woman in the damn world goes about her business, cramps or not. Give me a break. If they have chronic problems with their periods maybe they ought to go see a doctor and get something to alleviate the issues...this is Australia we're talking about, not some third-world jungle (where the women would never do something like this because they understand what a real problem is)...I'm sure there is at least one pharmacy in all of Australia that sells Aleve and those stick on heat-strips. I shudder to think of the amount of time and money wasted on this.
