Default Rush Limbaugh: Law Student "Slut" and "Prostitute"

Truly a new low, even for Rush, which is saying something. I don't generally get offended by things that political talking heads say (both left and right), because let's face it, they are charismatic figures paid large sums of money to say inflammatory things and cater to the wing nuts in their respective political camps.

However, as a woman and a consumer of contraception I am not only offended and frankly enraged by Rush's comments I am deeply disturbed and mildly horrified by the support he is receiving and the fact that more members of the GOP are not flaming him for his comments (although some have, and they have my respect for it). This is not a left/right thing, it is a human decency and respect thing.

It is also a pot meet kettle situation, considering that Rush was caught with Viagra in between his 3rd and 4th marriage. So, assuming said pills were not meant for fueling an active masturbatory life (ewwww), Rish was himself having extramarital sex. Just saying....

Anyhoo, enough of my rant, here is a blog piece that I thought was spot on:

For reference, here is a link to what was actually said by Sandra Fluke:

He's a ego-tripping scumbag. The people I know who hate him most are actually conservatives. Rational conservatives. The ones that end up being associated with lunacy and sewage because of pathetic wingnuts like this.

The people coming out of the woodwork to support Rush***8217;s disgusting statements too... The whole thing is just shocking - which is exactly what he wanted. Yet there is still the fear in me that people like him really believe what they***8217;re saying.

He is a scumbag and I sincerely hope he wakes up this morning, steps on a lego and pours his coffee on his crotch.

Yes, while rush has always been disturbing what is really disgusting are the people who take him seriously and agree with the oulandish things he says

Rush Limbaugh is horrifying. Really. Inside his head must be a scary bad place. I almost feel sorry for him for having to live there, but then realize he's the one who made it that way...

Why do people automatically assume that women who utilize planned parenthood or are using any type of birth control are automatically unmarried promiscuous young women? I know tons of happily married women who don't have health insurance and can't afford or aren't ready for children.

ETA: NOT that there's anything wrong with that lifestyle, I just notice media folks and politicians lumping them all into that category when there's a wide spectrum of women needing reproductive health care for varying reasons.

I believe his logic (in this case), is NOT that anyone who needs BC is a slut, but rather:

She requires contraceptive before she can have sex
Contraceptive requires $$$
She wants the state to fund "her" contraceptive
Thus, "she wants to be paid to have sex"
Thus she is a prostitute.

:/

ETA haha actually in this case he assumes she's promiscuous because she wants BC AND he figures she's a prostitute for thinking it should be state-funded:

Quote:
What does it say about the college co-ed Susan Fluke [sic] who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She's having so much sex, she can't afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex.

Rush Limbaugh, 29 February 2012

I have to admit the "you're a prostitute for taking tax-payer funded BC" is a new one for me lol

I just read about this. I know he's just doing it to be shocking, but it doesn't even make sense. Using birth control pills has nothing to do with "how much" sex you're having (as opposed to using one-use things like sponges or condoms) and besides, birth control pills are used for plenty of things other than contraception. I know everyone here knows this, I'm just being vent-y.

But slut and prostitute (along with fat or skinny) are just some of those general insult words that people fling at women when they don't really have anything substantive to say, so I guess it suits him.
