    Within hours conservatives on political forums were calling Fluke a slut. Some people in this thread called her a slut. I don't believe that Rush intended those comments or his other racist or sexist comments to be satire and I have seen plenty of evidence that most of his listeners take him at face value. The intent and result: the next young woman who thinks about speaking up about contraceptive availability has to be willing to handle being called a slut by conservatives nationwide.

    Nothing wrong with that. Be an adult and pay your own bills. Stop begging for an allowance like a child.

    How would you know since you don't watch MSDNC ?

    I certainly do watch MSNBC and they're much worse than Limbaugh because they present themselves and their shows as honest, serious, news reporting.

    Limbaugh attempts to use humor and satire to make his points.

    I watch MSNBC much more than I listen to Limbaugh.

    How about you?

    Deceitful response. Fluke was advocating for the opinion that contraception should always be included in health coverage, without an exception for religious institutions. She did not mention her own needs in her testimony, she mentioned the needs of other people that she knew about.

    Actually he's a pedophile.

    I was quoted out of context.

    What to you expect? The right has been lying about Fluke's words since they came out of her mouth.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
