Now that RUSH has everyone’s ‘ear’, I think he should make the point that Ms. Fluke is not a slut.
But.... she says that all her friends at Georgetown are sluts. Broke sluts who are going to get pregnant because they can’t afford contraceptives.
Condoms cost about 75 cents a piece, if you can’t scrounge up 75 cents, maybe you should spend time re-evaluating your life... rather than having sex.... Just a thought.
As they amply demonstrated last year. I'm sorry, the Left cannot hold a series of "Slut Walks" and then pretend to be offended at the word "slut." Nobody gets to enjoy that much hypocrisy.
Because I adore El Rushbo, I’ve stayed off of all the threads about him since this eruption, because I didn’t want to contribute to any kind of pile-on or perceived disparagement of Rush.
As a woman, I cringed when Rush used the *s* word to describe Ms. Flake. It was a visceral reaction. He could have called her a *fornicator* and I wouldn’t blink. He could have called her *promiscuous* and it wouldn’t have phased me. Actually, when he called her a *prostitute*, that word didn’t disturb me at all.
It was the *s* word that did it. Yeah, I know, a lot of people will say “It’s just a word, it’s just 4 letters, what’s wrong with you, are you a brainwashed feminazi?” The answer would be no.
There are some words that are so offensive to particular races and ethnicities that generally “everyone” understands that you don’t use them...such as the *n* word. For me, and millions of American women, being called the *s* word, the t**t word, or the *c* word are similar to that. Yes, I know that some muddle-headed liberal women refer to each other by the *s* word. It makes no difference. See *n* word example for the same phenomenon, and refer to Dr Laura Schlessinger.
Yeah, I know, Bill Maher and his sicko buddies can use these words with impunity towards conservative women, like Governor Palin, and they have used them without consequence or penalty. That’s them, not us. I want our men to be better than that. Who will ever forget Zell Miller challenging Chris Matthews to a duel, just for the sin of being rude to Michelle Malkin? Not me, not ever. I was filled with such respect for Zell as a result of that single display of sincere gallantry!
I’m glad Rush apologized, and only apologized for the use of a single word, recognizing that it is offensive and that it’s the purview of the disgusting leftist pigs who call themselves men, but who are not. Leave it to those perverse freaks to publicly wallow in filth and fling poo at women who disagree with them.
Rush didn’t need my forgiveness for his lapse. There’s so much in his “good deeds and words” bank that he’s automatically pre-forgiven by me for many things. Still, I respect him even a little more for having the cojones to apologize, knowing that the left will go into an orgiastic feeding frenzy over this evidence of them having bloodied his nose.
And that really was and is the larger point.
