"War On Women"

With the whole Hobby Lobby debate last week all over the internet.  I can not tell you how many times I heard disgruntled feminists touting this WAR ON WOMEN line ... as if those three words are A. fact and B. an instant argument blockade

A few questions:

Who are the players in this War On Women?  Is it us (General US, all women) against the world?  (men ... more appropriately , I'm assuming,  Christian White Men)  

Or is it US (only the enlightened feminist mindset) against the world (any one too dense to realize there is an actual freakin' WAR somehow waging in the shadows? ... ie. any woman who is actually HAPPY?)

Also ... side note ... as a feminist, do you laugh at images like those found on peopleofwalmart.com?  Because aren't those well meaning, camo spandex, underwear tank top women JUST exercising their freedom of choice in their apparel?

It's like there's a bunch of toddlers testing boundaries while the people in power just give them what they want to prevent hurt feelings. There is no war on anyone just a bunch of children throwing fits.

Yeah, a war on women because they have to pay for their own BC,or because they don't make as much as men, because generally, they take more time off. While somewhere in the world, women are sold into slavery,being married off at 9, being denied education, being mutilated, and caned for being raped. But there's a war on women in america. Yup, sounds legit.

I find this whole debate appalling. How is not covering FOUR of 24 medications a "War on Women"? I mean, really. They aren't saying, "You can never use these four medications if you work for us." They are saying, "We don't want to have to cover these four medications." What's the big deal? If you want the coverage, go work somewhere else. If you like where you work and want those FOUR medications, pay for it yourself. It's not that big of a freaking deal if you ask me.

American women don't know how good we have it. Not to say there isn't room for improvement but I mean, we really shouldn't be bitching and complaining so much.
