Rush Limbaugh calls college student a 'slut'

http://now.msn.com/now/0229-limbaugh-calls-woman-a-slut.aspx

Rush Limbaugh today called a women's health advocate and Georgetown Law student a "slut." The Huffington Post transcribed Limbaugh's comments on Sandra Fluke, who'd spoken to a Democratic panel on the benefits of birth control: "[Fluke] testifies she's having so much sex she can't afford her own birth control pills, and she wants President Obama to provide them, or the Pope. ... What does it say about the college co-ed Susan [sic] Fluke, 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." Limbaugh then corrected himself: "So she's not a slut. She's round-heeled." Round-heeled, for the record, means "slut."

I was going back in the posts after a question was raised about which I was curious too.

Re-read your post and an alarm bell rang. Maybe you did not mean to imply that you have a right to be in the "private lives and bedrooms" of women who are NOT "strong and independent". Maybe the wording was awkward. But I'd like to know--do you feel you have a right to intrude and force your beliefs on weaker women? Just curious.

I refered to Rush as 'slime' because he suggested that this young woman should provide sex tapes in exchange for BC. HOW in ANY world is that NOT SLIMY??? HOWEVER, his actions warranted my response. SHE did nothing to deserve being call a slut...or have the suggestion that she provide sex tapes be relevant!

I don't remember anyone suggesting that he wanted free viagra for all males. What was said was 1) that if insurance companies acted the same way concerning Viagra, there would be rioting in the streets by the men; 2) Rush was caught was a large amount of Viagra that he had no legal script for.

I couldn't either. I read to my DH & he said that it wasn't an apology either...and that there was absolutely NOTHING humorous in anything that Limbaugh has said. So, there's one male perspective that thinks Limbaugh is an idiot.

His 'apology' was lame & obviously forced by his advertisers pulling out. There was nothing humorous in what he said. It took him 3 days to come up with this apology? Sorry. I don't buy it & I know conservatives & moderates who don't buy it either. His was a personal attack on a young woman - one that was not warranted in any way. If people respond by calling him a complete jerk or a slime, well, he earned it.

My grandmother used it for her laundry & that's why my mom knew about it. She only rubbed it on my tongue & that one time was all it took! :D
