Not a preexisting condition.

Someone wrote…

I saw a banner ad regarding women’s health care that said “being a woman is not a preexisting condition.” I understand what they meant, of course, but I still smiled at the thought that it could apply to gender issues.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I would get angry at that, because the way I see it, being a woman IS a pre-existing condition. A condition of the heart, not of the body.
