Rush Limbaugh Thinks I Am A Slut

June 5, 2012

So says a bumper sticker one can purchase from a woman who is tired of men using bully words to condemn women and try to quiet women.

Women’s rights activists are banding together to “Rock the Slut Vote” in an online effort to register women to vote and cast their ballots against Republicans in 2012.

“If the GOP thinks that throwing the word ‘slut’ at us at this point is going to silence women they have another thing coming,” said Susan McMillan Emry, the site’s founder.

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh thrust the derogatory word into the political arena in February when he called law student Sandra Fluke a “slut” for testifying before Congress in support of contraceptives.

Following the national backlash over Limbaugh’s name-calling, “Rock the Slut Vote” is now aiming to “diffuse” the offensive term, Emry said.

Taking a vein from comedian Jeff Foxworthy and his “You might be a Redneck if…” jokes, Emry’s website gives visitors 22 reasons why “You might be a slut,” including “if you’ve ever used contraception” or “if you’re still downloading Dixie Chicks music” or “if you don’t go to church.”

The site aims to “re-appropriate” the word “slut” so that Limbaugh and other Republicans cannot use it to “bully and silence women,” Emry said.

The creator of such emblems has a website devoted to delineating the ways in which Rush Limbaugh considers women sluts. Personally, the checklist is my favorite, and the article from yahoonews doesn’t do it justice.  Check out the check list on: www.waronwomen.com.

It’s worth it.
