From the Dept. of DUH

Women Buying Health Policies Pay a Penalty
Women pay much more than men of the same age for individual health insurance policies.

Speaking as a woman "of childbearing age" who bought and paid for individual health insurance for around 3 years, yeeeeeeeeh, that's a big DUH. I distinctly remember it going up when I turn 31 in fact. Is that the average age for spawning?

Speaking of which, today at work my nice officemates, who are almost all women (9:1), arranged for 1) an ice cream potluck complete with special toppings and 2) homemade banana pudding. All the day Aunt Flo came to visit. She was so happy with the treats!
