Slut

My pills are fine but not yours...

How would one define a slut?  The word is used as an offensive term for a woman thought to be sexually promiscuous.  Well for Rush Limbaugh it was a term he used on his radio show, along with “prostitute” for Sandra Fluke, a third year law student at Georgetown University.  Limbaugh’s contempt for women is disgusting, degrading, and another pathetic example of the war on American women’s rights.

Is this ever going to end?

Sandra Fluke was the young and only woman denied the right to testify at a congressional hearing headed by Republican Darrell Issa about female contraception last month on Capital Hill.  A few weeks ago, Fluke testified at an unofficial hearing headed by Democrats how the cost of contraception is cost prohibitive and the need spans a variety of health reasons.  How did Limbaugh respond?  By calling Fluke a “slut” and “prostitute.”

Mr. Limbaugh, if taxpayers are going to pay for Viagra, then “us” taxpayers (women) want something in return:

  1. Please let me know the other uses for Viagra.  Does it prevent cancer like the Pill?
  2. Remember Mr. Limbaugh when you were stopped in 2009 by the police at the Palm Beach International Airport for a prescription (not in your name) of Viagra pills?
  3. Mr. Limbaugh do you remember making this quote in 1995: “Drug use, some might say, is destroying this country.  And we have laws against selling drugs, pushing drugs, using drugs, importing drugs. … And so if people are violating the law by doing drugs, they ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up..”?
  4. Mr. Limbaugh why do some insurance companies cover Viagra but not the Pill?  Could this be a double standard?  Men and sex means you’re cool, women and sex means you’re a slut.  Sense my cynicism?

It appears that Mr. Limbaugh apologized for calling Ms. Fluke names due to sponsors pulling out of his radio show.  Prostitute can be defined as somebody paid for sexual intercourse or somebody who degrades talent for money.  Ever hear of the old phrase “the pot calling the kettle black”?
