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.

Also wonder how MRA trash will deal with this issue when the male pill becomes available on the market. Right now the consensus among most of them is similar to Limbaugh’s- women are slutty slut sluts for wanting insurance to cover their birth control. But should the male pill not get covered I’m sure they’ll be screeching about feminazi suppression or some other conspiracy bullshit.

Well, from an MRA point of view this makes perfect sense. Women’s sexuality exists for the benefit of men, so why should any man be willing to fund contraception for a woman unless she’s giving him sex? And obviously as a hard-working, tax paying man Limbaugh is totally paying for this young woman’s healthcare because…wait.

Great. For totally unrelated reasons, I’ve got Joe Jackson’s Is She Really Going Out With Him? stuck in my head.

For those who aren’t familiar with the song, it laments that really ugly guys can get women, but the good-looking singer can’t. It’s like someone multiplied the MRM by -1 (or reversed the polarity of their neutron flow).

It’s actually extraordinarily hard to get banned from here, but our trolls, they just try extra hard.

Usually it’s the point where they start screaming that people deserve to be raped.

Thing is, NWO, had advocated for rape before this time, got moderated and came back with a specific agenda to try and attack Holly.

Brandon specifically attacked hellkell, told her he hoped she’d been raped and advocated for rape of feminists in general.

I realize you want to defend the poor helpless MRAs, but really the bar here is pretty low, all you have to do is refrain from promoting violence against specific commenters here.

The more biased one is, the more attention they receive. I mean, this comedian didn’t even have to advertise himself on feminist sites (or update in a few years), and he still gets delightful feminist rage.

I’m wondering about that as well. Since it doesn’t exist yet they’ll probably play “egalitarian” and claim it should be funded in the same way female birth control is, but once it’s mainstream they’ll claim their pills are so much more important than female birth control. Somehow.

Also, when I see the male pill mentioned on MRA sites, they always preface it with “non-hormonal.” You know these guys aren’t gonna take it if it messes with their precious bodily fluids, because we all know:

Modifying male hormones for birth control = DO NOT WANT, THE HORROR
Modifying female hormones for birth control = Wimmens’ hormones make them crazy anyway, like, whatever.

Oh God forbid we worry about our health. “No, you piggish men, you just live in the coal mines and come up every few weeks to pay our benefits. What’s that? You don’t want to work yourself to an early grave? Well, caring about your health somehow means you hate women so eat shit!”

Hitler was overemotional? An alarmist sure, but this is the first time I’ve heard him being referred to as overemotional.

Uh, yeah. My college psych prof was the daughter of one of Hitler’s architects, and she used to tell us about one of her dad’s meetings with him. Hitler wanted his architects to design a perfectly round building for his “Great Hall”. Unfortunately, this was before Buckminster Fuller’s time, so the architects told the Emotional One that this was impossible. Hitler got so upset that he flung himself to the floor and chewed the rug.

Or you could just watch the old serials of him giving a speech. That would work too.

My Dad used to be a coal miner. Shockingly enough, the evil wimminz let him come up to the surface fairly often, and not just in order to “pay our benefits”.

I think FactFinder saw that lulzy Rammstein video and mistook it for a documentary.

Somehow, IR has made taking hormonal birth control equivalent to coal mining. That’s kind of awesome. 😀

But Holly, women are obligated to risk their health for the comfort of their male partners at all times.

Men should never have to risk anything, ever, because some men are coal miners.

Numerous men, one I was sleeping with and others who were just friends, have told me how important it is that the women they have sex with use hormonal birth control (assuming everyone has a clean bill of sexual health), because “condoms just don’t feel the same.” So, I guess all can say is lololololol.

I know, right? I want moody, grindy, grimy music videos made of the moment when I swallow a small pill every morning, and suffer breast tenderness and periodic depression, and my chances of cardiovascular disease and cancer increase slightly.

I’m not disputing it, just was not a description of him that I’ve come across. I have seen some of his speeches, but I was of the impression that the emotion in his speeches was calculated to manipulate the masses rather than a genuine emotional outburst. Can’t argue with chewing on the rug though.

Yeah, and the fact that some men are coal miners is not relevant to you personally either.

My point is that I risk my health for contraception every day. Fuck, I’m glad to risk my health, given how little I can afford a child right now. But it pisses me the hell off when men say they wouldn’t consider any form of contraception that entails any risk or inconvenience whatsoever.

Because not only are you not a coal miner, you do nothing as risky as hormonal birth control for the benefit of anyone else.

Maybe he did not actually have sex with his wives? That is the answer I hope to be true for the wives, sake, I am sure he would be traumatizing in bed, because he is a garbage nightmare of a person.

If I was worried about getting pregnant, I would probably start taking birth control. Your body, your choice, your responsibility.

Okay, IR, see, the male body produces this thing called sperm! They are little swimmy things! They live in your special places!

And the magical thing is that you cannot make a baby without using some of these little sperm guys!

So anyone who uses the little sperm guys from their body to make a baby is half responsible for that baby!

Isn’t biology magical?

Okay. But if you believe this, then why aren’t you spending your time on this thread chastising Limbaugh for calling a woman who uses birth control a whore? I mean, other than the the fact that you’re an idiot.

Isn’t a woman who uses hormonal birth control being responsible? If she wants the insurance that she pays for to help cover the costs of hormonal birth control, doesn’t that show how responsible she’s being?*

*I realize that the young woman Limbaugh is deriding was actually testifying about the importance of contraceptive for other medical issues but, let’s be real, fact finder is dumb.

Aspirin. Lots and lots of aspirin.

(This is a goofy comment, but: I don’t think I can actually hold something as small as an aspirin tablet between my knees. I can’t touch my kneecaps together! …Is that weird? My legs don’t bend that way.

I can hold an aspirin between the sides of my knees. Maybe that counts.)
