So, it is an interesting time in the world of women’s rights. Right now, there is a war begun anew against women in this country. It isn’t a surprise. Republican men have always hated that women get rights in this country. They want their women to be bringing them a drink in Leave it to Beaver land. They want their women barefoot and in the kitchen, pushing out babies so that they can make them into more Republicans. In this case, they are now deciding to take a new tactic.
I know that I’m not going to be shocking anybody when I tell them that Rush Limbaugh is a deplorable piece of shit. This is old news. Women of this country know that this guy is fucking scum. They know that this dude couldn’t possibly be any worse for women than he already is. But recently, his stupidity, bigotry and misogyny came forward in a way that it almost unfathomable.
But first, a little back-story. You see, there has been a congressional committee called by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) about contraception. Here’s the kicker – this committee has no women in it. Not one women has been allowed to participate in the discussion about their bodies. You can just feel the sexism flowing, can’t you ladies? But yeah, this committee denied a woman named Sandra Fluke’s testimony about contraception. She is a Georgetown law student, and had some very interesting things to say.
I was invited here to testify…because, I wanted to speak about the effects, for women, the effects on women, of the lack of contraception coverage. The real consequence of the policy that is being discussed in today’s hearing. Unfortunately, Chairman Issa felt that the topic of contraception was not relevant to a debate about contraception policy.
Really?! Okay, before we get to attacking the idiot Limbaugh, let’s have a “Fuck You” go out to Darrell Issa, who clearly is a bigot and an idiot. She goes on to say that this is such a tragic issue. But what I am going to do instead, is do a hit for hit post about what the misogynist piece of shit Limbaugh said about this woman, who wanted to come and defend women.
What does it say about the college co-ed Susan Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex?
First off, you narrow-minded idiot, she isn’t saying that. She is saying that women who need contraception services should have coverage for it. She is also making the case that these services are often used for women who aren’t even using it for sexual protection. There are people who need this for a wide variety of other reasons.
I have a friend who takes birth control because her reproductive cycle beats the shit out of her. It’s incredibly more potent than normal, often leaving her with pain like you cannot understand, and a whole mess of other problems. She takes birth control to keep it under control. I feel bad for this girl. So, she doesn’t want it for sex. And many women, like the one Fluke describes, are much the same. However, Limbaugh goes on.
What does that make her?
Proof that you don’t listen.
It makes her a slut, right?
Here we go. The stupidity starts to flow.
It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex.
Where, where does she say that?! She’s not being paid. She’s being covered. This is a health care coverage issue. We’re not giving her money and saying – “Hey baby, go out and have a good time!” No! We’re saying that this is a health care coverage issue.
She’s having so much sex, she can’t afford the contraception.
Take a look at the video link above. She isn’t talking about herself. She is talking about other women. She is talking about poor women, who not only aren’t being covered, but in some cases, aren’t even having the services available. This is her defending other women, you slack-jawed moron! But since Limbaugh clearly has no regard for women, as you can tell from the fact he has had four wives, each getting progressively hotter with his growing wealth.
She wants you and me and the taxpayer to pay her to have sex.
Pay careful attention to the wording there. Think about this – Rush Limbaugh is a rich man. He has grown wealthy to the point that his tax obligation is FAR less than these taxpayers that he seems to want to defend so much. This rich ponce isn’t giving anywhere NEAR what he should be, yet he feels that he can complain. Unreal…
What does that make us?
Well, if we actually had universal health care in this country, which we should, that would make you decent people. Who knows, maybe you would be making the world better for somebody else! But I know, Rush, you hate that. In your Conservative Wonderland, life is great only for you, and all these women are sex slaves, and all these poor people (your base) are dead.
We’re the pimps. The Johns. No, we we’re not the Johns!
Ugh. So stupid…
Okay, so she’s not a slut. She’s round-heeled. I take it back.
Sure you do. And what does round-heeled mean anyway? What I love is that immediately following his stupidity and misogyny, he has a woman come onto his show to defend his bigotry. It’s amazing how many women there are who will sell out their rights. Makes me think of how Clarence Thomas, a Supreme Court Justice, is against black rights. Ironic.
But back to Fluke, let’s hear what she has to say about this whole issue. You’ll find it infinitely more intellectually engaging than anything Rush Limbaugh has ever said over the entirety of his dim-witted life.
It has been heart-breaking, frankly, to see women’s health treated as a political football, in the national media, while around my campus, I instead see the face of the women affect by this policy.
Thank you! That’s the absolute truth in a nutshell! Women’s health is being treated like a bad joke by these Republican scum who can’t own up to the fact that they are not pro-life, they are anti-choice. The more options that women have not to get an abortion, the louder the opposition becomes. It’s sick, really sick. But it is becoming the Modus Operandi for people like Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, and many others. Two of those are out of the Presidential race, but Santorum remains, and he is winning primaries. There is a chance that Romney won’t be running against Obama in 2012.
Women, you have to start getting a lot more active. These people (and I call them that in the loosest of terms) are trying to strip away your rights as people. It’s sick, it’s pathetic, and it honestly shouldn’t be tolerate by anybody.
As for you, Limbaugh, you are society’s intellectual garbage can. Nothing but shit spews from that anus that you call a mouth. Nothing you have ever said is of any societal worth, and I hope you end up alone and miserable. Of course, you never will. There is no shortage of conservative idiots to listen to your stupidity. They don’t believe in birth control, after all, and so they are producing large hordes of offspring who are just as slack-jawed and stupid as their parents.
Until next time, a quote,
