So rules are written such that when men pay more, it's fine, but women can't be forced to pay more even when there is a sound cost justification.

If we take away women specific issues from health care coverage, as DS suggests, I think it's only fair we take away men specific issues as well. For example, prostate cancer. Women don't have coverage for prostate cancer. It's totally unfair.

It's almost like men and women have different health care costs, and it would make sense for each of them to pay costs related to the conditions they are expected to need coverage for.

About 10 seconds of Googling reveals that tampons were taxed as a "luxury item". If "not getting blood all over everything one week out of every month" sounds like a frivolous luxury to you, you should probably reexamine your life.

Well, I disagree with privately offered, employer sponsored heath care coverage in the first place. So, to me, whether or not there are unisex rates or not is the wrong question.

Serious question, are tampons more expensive than pads? Are they considered luxury items, relatively speaking? I have never purchased either, so please forgive my ignorance.
