"What does it say about the college coed 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. 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. What does that make us? We’re the pimps. The johns, that’s right. We would be the johns — no! We’re not the johns. Well — yeah, that’s right. Pimp’s not the right word."
Rush Limbaugh, on law student Sandra Fluke, who was denied the ability to testify before the all-male panel considering contraceptive coverage.
As ThinkProgress states: “While it’s probably not even worth engaging with Limbaugh on the facts, Fluke’s testimony was about a friend who is a lesbian and needed birth control for non-sexual medical reasons, so he’s only wrong about three times over, and offensive many more times over than that.”
Need we discuss Limbaugh getting caught with Viagra that wasn’t even his? No? How about pointing out that with birth control, it doesn’t matter how much sex you have — taking one pill is enough to prevent pregnancy?
Or how about he’s a misogynistic pig? Is that ok?

I don’t care who you are, I don’t care if you’re gay, I don’t care if you’re a ~F~eminist or a feminist ally, I don’t care if you’re pro-choice
when you force your way into these conversations you are bringing this guy with you…I know you think you’re not, and you think you’re special and progressive and wonderful, but you are one slip-up away from Rush Limbaugh, you really are, and I am afraid of you, and I do not trust your opinion on this subject and I never will
your voice is meaningless here
hurts, doesn’t it? to be told your thoughts are worthless and you should just shut up?
yeah, welcome to our world. deal with it.
