The California Applicants’ Attorneys Association didn’t pull any punches. Gov. Jerry Brown After Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed its apportionment bill, the organization compared the 79-year old governor to the patriarch of the 1950s sitcom “Father Knows Best.” “Veto is an old-fashioned word,” the CAAA translation reads. “I study old-fashioned stuff. Maybe you don’t know that ‘veto’ is a Latin acronym (I love Latin) ‘vaginas exempted today obliquely.' So please don’t let your emotions get the best of you. Together we...

How completely classless of CAAA. In a time when we should be dedicating real effort to issues of gender equality and ending sexual harassment, their attempt to use "humor" to piggy back on this issue in a way that makes light of true discrimination and harassment is a slap in the face to women of California.

QME perverts were able to glean older women personal medical info via the insurers that were totally unrelated to their comp claims. This was a set up a long time ago to state that women who were over the age of 40 were suffering from female medical conditions such as menapause were the cause of their mental and physical injuries. The reason I call them perverts is because these same QME medical reports included explicit breast and pelvic exams that were unlawfully obtained to discredit older women's physical illnesses and injuries sustained on the job so insurers to get away with and saying say all of their injuries were "all in their head". The same applies to other obtaining of unlawful personal information, always to be used against older injured women. Are male medical conditions such as having prostrate problems used to deny men's claims??. Males would not tolerate any such thing in the process of their worker compensation claims AND neither should women AND neither should the governor who touts his intellectual prowess AND neither should the California legislators. The California Legislation needs to proceed further in the fact that women's 'female"issues are not fodder to deny claims in workers compensation but say it was it is, that women have disproportionately suffered discrimination for decades and it needs to stop and start with the age old discriminator of all, the California worker compensation system. That is beyond being patriarchal, that is old man's perversion!
