Bernie Sanders wants everyone to know that the government no longer forcing employers to pay for birth control is SUUUPER sexist.
We always knew the Little Sisters of the Poor were mean ol’ sexists deep down.

This is nothing less than sexism. It's the latest display of Republicans’ total disdain for women’s ability to control their own lives. https://t.co/JpsFjBphB6

Sorry but isn’t this exactly what it should look like for a woman to take control of her life? Paying for her own needs and wants?
Oh, and we’re pretty sure we know what’s really sexist.
From The New York Times:
In the article, written for an alternative newspaper called The Vermont Freeman, Mr. Sanders imagined male and female sexual fantasies, apparently to illustrate how both sexes have internalized gender stereotypes, which he went on to write were self-defeating. The Vermont Freeman no longer exists.
“A woman enjoys intercourse with her man — as she fantasizes being raped by 3 men simultaneously,” Mr. Sanders wrote.
But hey Bernie, you be you.
How's it sexist? My employer doesn't buy me condoms.

How dare you!? It’s sexist for you to even ask that question.
All for it Bernie. Why should I pay for somebody else’s private actions, man or woman? That is a rhetorical question.

Dude, he’s a Socialist. Government is his EVERYTHING.
Not what that is at all. Pay your own way. Why is it their employers responsibility to prevent conception? Why is everyone entitled?

No, it's called self-responsibility. You want people out of your bedrooms? Don't make them pay for what you do in your bedroom.
