antifeminism creepy misogyny reactionary bullshit sex shaming tactics sluts vaginas whores

Attention feminists: Rush Limbaugh wants to watch you having sex.

Sometimes Rush gets a little overexcited

You may recall that  all-dude panel of “experts” at that recent congressional hearing on contraception. One of the reasons it was an all-dude panel was that congressional Republicans wouldn’t let Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke testify on the costs of birth control. (She later testified at a separate hearing held by Nancy Pelosi.)

Apparently stating publicly how much contraception costs when it’s not covered by insurance is basically the equivalent of pooping on the flag to some misogynistic assholes, among them the always charming Rush Limbaugh, who has denounced Fluke as a “slut” and a whore, saying, at one point, that she

went before a Congressional committee and said she’s having so much sex she’s going broke buying contraceptives and wants us to buy them.

Actually, she didn’t testify about her own experience at all.

Also, does Limbaugh even know how contraception works? Yes, the number of condoms one buys depends on how often you have sex. (Or at the very least how often you hope to have sex. Who knows how many boxes of condoms, purchased in moments of optimism, have quietly expired on the shelf waiting for their purchasers to finally get their mojo working. )

But the costs of many other forms of contraception have no relation whatsoever to the frequency of sex. Women on “the pill” take a pill every day, regardless of whether they are having sex that day or not. Women using IUDs don’t run down to the health center to have one installed every time their vagina expects a visitor.

Birth control, in short, doesn’t work like Oxycontin or Viagra, the two pills about which Limbaugh seems most knowledgeable.

Sorry to belabor the obvious, which apparently isn’t so obvious if you’re a right-wing, woman-hating asshole.

Anyway, now Limbaugh seems to think he’s entitled to watch Fluke having sex:

So Miss Fluke, and the rest of you Feminazis, here’s the deal. If we are going to pay for your contraceptives, and thus pay for you to have sex. We want something for it. … We want you post the videos online so we can all watch.

Dude, what the fuck is wrong with you?

Here’s the excerpt from his radio show in which he makes this creepy demand.

Nevermind being sexually active is about as normal as eating regularly for like 99% of adult humans.

You’re speaking from a position of privilege. You erased the involuntarily celibate 40-year-old virgin creepy loser omegas, even though some of them are mocked by this very site.

And furthermore, “opulent” is an incredibly weird thing for a horse to be.

Weirder than “gleaming?” (I googled “gleaming opulent horse,” but all I got was gleaming opulent houses. And a picture of the Rolling Stones. Disappointing.)

You know the funniest thing in the world? As long as feminists like yourself pressure men into having sex, men will continue to pressure women into having sex. Or are you not speaking from ignorance? It wouldn’t surprise me if you’re okay with throwing a few men and women under the bus in the name of feminism. I’ve seen worse.

IR, do you really think you and the other MRA’s could make anyone a big name?

You know something, MRAS? I just read this

http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/change-on-federal-benefits-payments-could-leave-child-support-debtors-with-no-income/2012/02/26/gIQAZvtxbR_story_1.html

That’s awful. The system needs serious reform, and quickly. Now, do you see how getting people to associate child support reform with a bunch of guys screaming about bitches and feminists might be a bad thing for that important cause? Do you really think what a poor disabled guy having his wages frozen needs is a trip to the world of Elam, et al?

Silly question, I know.

Do they really want a society full of unwanted children who also will not receive adequate healthcare, nutrition, and decent living conditions? Do they realize what will happen? A large portion of the population will essentially be living in 3rd world conditions.

Actually they probably do realize this. They just don’t give a shit.

In my experience, people who take this stance would see it as a just punishment for promiscuity. People of Rush’s ilk have this very odd dichotomy about what pregnancy and a child is. For the married, it is the blessing of blessings. For the non-married, the child is a means to punish the adult for their wicked ways or something like that. If the above scenario did happen, Rush or others like him would ignore the effects of a lack of contraception and simply say “you deserved it for having sex.”

So the feminists here are pressuring men into sex (how? what proof of this do you have?) and those same exact men are pressuring other women into sex? xD

I think I need to see some proof as to how you know this.

Surely you didn’t come to your conclusion FIRST right? You must have come to your conclusion via persuasive evidence.

Show me that evidence 😀

@Zhinxy MRAs don’t even care about those guys >_> They care about getting dates, sex without having to talk to women, and lowering the standards of rape. Those honestly seem to be the biggest things on their mind.

http://www.avoiceformen.com/mens-rights/ncfm-asks-the-u-n-to-end-discrimination-against-men/

Even that list… no worrying about child soldiers, no worrying about rape of men during war, or rape of prisoners of war, or workplace disability, rights of those working manual labor jobs, depression, suicide, none of those things MRAs give lip service behind… no rights of trans or queer men or disabled or non-white men (groups that MRAs hide behind)…

what we get is that the government should legislate dating… that they need their own holiday… that female rape survivors be held responsible for men murdering each other (the whole “blood feud” thing)…

IR doesn’t care about being associated with people who hurt the cause of disabled men having their wages frozen by the state.,. to him, they’re at most, a poker chip to play against feminists online… e_e YOU care… he doesn’t xD

He’s just here to win the argument. He doesn’t care about “the cause” because he doesn’t have one. xD

(Or like many MRAs he takes the easy way out… the only way to help men is to destroy feminism… all else doesn’t matter… Feminism is Sauron… therefore even helping a couple men or a hundred men or a thousand men doesn’t matter… it’s a drop in the bucket compared to what would happen if we destroy feminism… and the only way to destroy feminism is to argue with feminists online xD Go you brave hero you!)

Also, in regards to contraception control.

At the University I am attending* student health used to give condoms away for free. However, the university required them to start charging students for condoms. I asked one of the staff there why they are doing this. She told me that parents felt that if condoms are freely available, their children would be too tempted to have sex or something like that (she thought it was a stupid reason too).

Apparently students having sex is so much of a concern that an organization dedicated to health can’t give away condoms without being forced to ask for money. Also, it shows that the school doesn’t consider the students adults capable of making their own decisions.

*I am currently studying abroad in Norway, but here I’m referring to my home university in the US.

Wh…what? This is the strangest phrase I’ve read since that post with Christian J’s incoherent babble. I must say, I would like a gleaming opulent horse (I’m imagining the Red Hare horse from Romance of the 3 Kingdoms decked out with jewels and a shiny mane).

As long as feminists like yourself pressure men into having sex, men will continue to pressure women into having sex.

WHAT PRESSURING!? I was under the impression that “have sex if and only if both you and your partner want to (also known as getting and giving enthusiastic consent)” was expressly against the idea of pressuring anyone into any sexual act they don’t want to do.

Y’all should come over to the UK. Our contraception is free. Actually free. Free.

Hell, I filled my free prescription 2 days ago. Just went right on up to the counter and was giving three months supply of the pill without anyone calling me a whore! And at the GP, she gave me my prescription AND insisted I took free condoms. It’s like she WANTS me to have sex!

Seriously though, I fucking love the NHS.

If you’re going to have leisure sex then you have to pay for it just like MEN.

So, women need to pay for their own contraception in order to have sex with… themselves? Last time I checked, one doesn’t need birth control to masturbate. So if a woman is paying for her birth control, she is also paying for the birth control of the man or men she’s having sex with (if she’s having sex with a woman/women, she wouldn’t be needing birth control).

>>>You know that if you want to violate your employer’s values, they will not compensate you for it.

The conservative logic in a nutshell: your employer has a right to control your private life, just like a feudal lord. Maybe next they’ll try to defend a corporate ‘droit du seigneur’. (“Hey, if you didn’t want your employer to have first go at fucking your new wife, you could always go work elsewhere!”)

Never mind that they only want to determine whether or not to pay for a certain service for the very tiny sliver of people who work for them, you’ve gotta see the big picture here

Dude, what part of “women are half the population” and “most women will be on some form of birth control during their lifetimes” do you not get? Don’t try to pretend like BC is some sort of whacky untested crank med. Shit works.

Also, (and I say this as someone who will be clergy at some point in the future) it really rubs me the wrong way that religious institutions don’t pay taxes. Like, the huge power differential for letting them off the hook for that, it kinda makes me furious, especially since so many religious hierarchies try to get the government to bow to their every whim when it comes to women’s bodies.

@Demios-

For the married, it is the blessing of blessings. For the non-married, the child is a means to punish the adult for their wicked ways or something like that.

Of course, they completely ignore that some married people do NOT want babies, or that they do not want babies right this minute, and might sometime in the future. And also that for some single people, children are an absolute blessing and they want support and resources to care for those children effectively (like affordable daycare). Because people are monolithic blocks, not people.

@Blackbloc- Yeah, it kind of terrifies me that people think that some old white celibate dude gets to say what I spend my own money on just because I might happen to work for him. So fucking paternalistic.

Rush wants to watch women having sex…riiight. I have a feeling that he might change his opinion if he was watching a typical woman having sex as opposed to watching porn barbie dolls (women who are a) very young and b) conform to a gendered ideal of beauty so rigid that only women who look like the toy are suitable) put on a performance. Very different things to watch.

Although I enjoy thinking about him watching a femdom in action. I figure either his head will explode or his balls will immediately shrivel up and fall off. What can I say, I’m evil that way.

Dude, seriously: THERE ARE PLACES WHERE YOU CAN GET CONDOMS FOR FREE! YOU DON’T HAVE TO PAY FOR THEM! Go to Planned Parenthood, they’ll give you a whole bag!

Also, all the condoms I bought for the last kink event I attended were apparently actually bought by a man, because women never pay for birth control. Even when I used my own debit card and everything.

@Molly Ren

There are places to do that at my college too (just not student health). The Womens Resource Center WRC and the office of Gender and Sexual Orientation (the feminist and LGBT rights organizations in student government, respectively) can and do still give condoms away for free (they have close contact with the local chapters of planned parenthood too). Some workers at Student Health sometimes refer students to those organizations for free condoms and other related things “off the record.”

That being said, it shouldn’t have to come to that in the first place. I think the only reason those two organizations get away with it is that they are under the radar of the parents.

Public service announcement: Buying condoms in person at the drugstore is the worst deal. It’s okay for emergencies or if you only need condoms once in a long while, but if they’re a regular part of your sex life (and if you have a credit card and mailing address, obviously), go here:

http://www.amazon.com/Crown-Condoms-100-Pack/dp/B00328R2AS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1330700039&sr=8-1

$18 for a giant bag of 100. I’ve been using them for years and never had one break, and I’ve never heard any complaints from my gentleman partners. Soooo much easier than paying the same amount for a 12-pack.

You know what’s dumb? Assuming that because something is prescribed, it’s okay. After all, it’s not like doctors ever have any incentive whatsoever to medicate their patients, or patients ever lie to get drugs. Hell, if David became a psychiatrist rather than a blogger, he would probably recommend chemical castration for every man who did not buy into his politics, or as he puts it, “men who should not ever be with women ever.”

Wow. I…

You know, this statement has been thoroughly dissected by many of the other posters. And its logical fallacies and sheer what-the-fuckness have been duly noted. Besides that horse/aryan intellect thing you wrote later kind of tops it. But I digress.

IR/FF, you’re dumb. This argument, and your continued defense of it, is dumb. The fact that you’ve stated outright that it’s responsible for women to use birth control but, when confronted with your own statement, decided to bring up chemical castration, medieval skull drilling, and assorted other fuckery to contradict your own point is just… well… it’s dumb.

If you’re going to have leisure sex then you have to pay for it just like MEN.

Insurance typically covers Viagra. Those priests apparently don’t feel violated by having to pay for a man to get his dick up, even if that man isn’t married, and even if he doesn’t want children. This doesn’t seem to offend anyone. How come?

Men who have “leisure sex” also don’t have to cover any part of the costs of abortion, pregnancy or child birth. How come? Wouldn’t that come under the definition of “paying for leisure sex”?

Interesting observation: While looking up the link for Viagra coverage, I also did a search on erectile dysfunction. You know what I’ve noticed? Not one blog, not one news story, not one comment even remotely admonishing impotent men that they should just give up on having sex. Not one “suck it up”. Not one “you are too old for sex anyway”. Not one “impotence is a normal part of aging, deal with it”. Not one “we shouldn’t have to pay for you to be able to get your jollies off, you filthy sex-haver”. I clicked on every link for four pages and every one of those sites was sympathetic to men with erectile dysfunction, regardless of circumstances. If only women who want to have sex and remain healthy encountered that kind of compassion.
