    It doesn’t do too much for men. All of my acquaintances who’ve had radical prostatectomies are in agreement. Bob Dole excluded.

  2. James Joyner says:

    I don’t think Viagra is really supposed to do anything for people with serious physical barriers to arousal.

    “Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer Inc. said it was “disappointed” in the study’s finding and will not seek approval from U.S. drug regulators to make the drug available to women.”

    I think this violates the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment. Everyone knows that there are no differences between men a women. Attention: Lawyers for the ACLU, attack. Pfizer Inc. has proven to be just one more patriarchal company oppressing women by descriminating solely on the basis of sex. This decision cannot stand. It is time to organize a Million Woman march on Pfizer Headquarters. And who is the head of the FDA. Bring me his head on a plate.
