In Pakistan a 14 year old girl was shot in the face because she dared to fight for women's education rights. Some idiot men shot her in the head because they wanted to silence a woman who was standing up for herself. Luckily it backfired and shows not all men and woman are as stupid as those that shot her.
In the US a woman called Sarah Fluke had the audacity to give her opinion about birth control and what was the result? A mister Limbaugh thought he had to add his 2 cents to the discussion by saying the following:
What did presidential nominee Mitt say: "it’s not the language I would have used.". Really, the language is the problem? I would beg to differ. Mister Santorum decided to say "an entertainer can be absurd." Yeah, absurd is what I would call the response of mister Santorum.What does it say about the college co-ed Susan Fluke [sic], 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. (interruption) The johns? We would be the johns? No! We're not the johns. (interruption) Yeah, that's right. Pimp's not the right word. Okay, so she's not a slut. She's "round heeled". I take it back.
Can you imagine if you're her parents how proud of Sandra Fluke you would be? Your daughter goes up to a congressional hearing conducted by the Botox-filled Nancy Pelosi and testifies she's having so much sex she can't afford her own birth control pills and she agrees that Obama should provide them, or the Pope.
Some republican men had the guts to speak up and denounce it in the most clear words, men like Senator McCain, who said that Limbaugh's statements were unacceptable "in every way" and "should be condemned" by people across the political spectrum. And a man like David Frum who said:But Mister Frum is a speech writer so he can say things nicer than most people can"Limbaugh's verbal abuse of Sandra Fluke set a new kind of low. I can't recall anything as brutal, ugly and deliberate ever being said by such a prominent person and so emphatically repeated. This was not a case of a bad 'word choice'. It was a brutally sexualized accusation, against a specific person, prolonged over three days.
