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.

Poor thing! His site really is the very essence of funny-sad. I love how all the quotes are from here: It’s an MRA website responding to a feminist website responding to an MRA website. Relevance!

So let’s go back to the beginning here: what point were you trying to make with the Aryan horse thing?
I figured you guys would get that I was equating your superiority complex to racism, but it seems that went over your heads.
Anyway, if I was here for page hits, why wouldn’t I be passively linking to my blog while posting at AVfM? I’m here for fun.
As for the whining about how incoherent I am, I’ve written AVfM and the posters there have built on, complimented, and critiqued my work. So yeah, you know and I know that you’re just being difficult and snarky, and like so many men before me I’m just around you for my own pleasure.

Well then young’un, some words of wisdom (for you anyway, most people consider this common sense): when attempting to insult someone, it is always best to be sure that the insult actually applies.

Seeing as I’m neither White (so the WN’s stupid appropriation doesn’t apply to me), nor am I from an actual Aryan ethnicity, your comment just comes across as (and I know you’ve been hearing this a lot) dumb.

No doubt. Apparently every post that I make here drains my skin of a little more melanin. Or something.

Ok, just keep telling yourself that. No one else believes you.

I have a feeling no one at AVFM has ever seen his blog.

This is IR/FF’s AVfM piece: http://www.avoiceformen.com/mens-rights/activism/shameless/

It’s pretty incoherent and quite racist:

Clearly, as the author has shown immense bigotry against white males. If this were written with Jews substituted for white men, it could be in a Klan pamphlet.

But it does have comments. More comments than the entirety of IR’s blog, in fact. So whooo and big congratulations, dude. Those 13 comments were your day in the sun.

Consider the possibility that you are what a bunch of stupid people think a smart person writes like. This would explain why it is incoherent to those born with a brain.

You… you were? When you said this?

If you’re going to address someone mounted on the gleaming opulent horse of superior Aryan intellect, you should not start off with a logical fallacy so obvious a child could find it.

IR

IR, this is serious

I think you might be terrible at expressing yourself in writing.

Slave-boy, the billboard of the dad bottle-feeding his child was pulled in response to protests by La Leche League. Their objection was that the child was being bottle-fed, not that it was a male doing the bottle-feeding.

Now, as a dad who has actually stayed home to take care of his kids when they were infants, I have a problem with what La Leche League is doing here. Breast feeding is important, but so is father-child bonding. Besides, how do they know the dad isn’t feeding the baby pumped breast milk? We did that all the time at my house.

La Leche League has done some good work in promoting breast feeding, but they also tend to be fanatical in their elevation of breast feeding over all other concerns.

Actually, I’m going to help you out a bit. When you said

If you’re going to address someone mounted on the gleaming opulent horse of superior Aryan intellect, you should not start off with a logical fallacy so obvious a child could find it.

“you” was in reference to Shadow, and “someone” was in reference to yourself, IdeologueReview, yes? The way you have phrased it suggests that “someone” (i.e. you, IdeologueReview) is mounted on the Aryan horse. For your statement to mean what you meant it to mean, “you” (i.e. Shadow) needs to be mounted on the horse. That could be easily accomplished by adding the word “while,” as in

If you’re going to address someone [while] mounted on the gleaming opulent horse of superior Aryan intellect, you should not start off with a logical fallacy so obvious a child could find it.

That’s how you nonsensically suggest that Shadow is a racist White person.

But really, I don’t actually want to help you write better. I just want an excuse to quote your totally absurd words as often as possible.

I’m guessing that FF was/is one of those annoying college students who is always insisting that the reason he gets C’s is that the professors can’t grok his superior intellect.

Things that are ableist:

– Mocking the disabled

– Using words that marginalize disabled people

– Suggesting IR’s problems are the result of a disability

Things that are not ableist:

– Noticing IR’s shitty grasp of sentence structure

IR, so if we point out that your comments make no fucking sense,
Oh dear.
that makes up ableist?
No.

Here’s one of the more obvious examples. Does ableism not count when it comes from a feminist or something?

I don’t think the guy who made “preggo punchout” gets to co-opt social justice terminology.

Especially when the only “ability” anyone’s talked about was the ability to not be an ignorant asshole. And how you have it and just aren’t using it.

I expected better of you.

The real question is: is this due to natural causes, or is it a lifestyle choice? IR, do you ID as brainless or brain free?

Now, now, everybody knows that zombies don’t have brains, and your politically correctness is just blinding you to the truth.
So remember, zombies don’t have brains, so when they come shuffling towards you, there’s no point in shooting them in the head. No point at all.

So IR is hiding behind ablism now? -_o

I had no idea IR was so concerned about ablism. I’ll be sure to watch his comments from now on and make sure he sticks to his new philosophy :3

Ami Angelwings

Or is this yet another “I’ll hold you guys to a standard I don’t hold my own movement to because we never said we’re good guys who care about people”? xD

Somehow IR does not note the number of times MRAs say “moron” or “retarded” or “idiot”…

or is that okay b/c the MRM is ablist and proud of it? xD

What kind of anti-feminist argument can the MRM make at all accusing us of being ablist, or racist, or etc.. when their movement is full of that and proud of it? xD “Sick of feminist ablism? Join us, we’re even worse!”? xD

Ami Angelwings
8 years ago

This isn’t the “well you do it too!” thing, it’s that ablism IS wrong, but somehow I doubt that IR really cares about ablism. xD I certainly don’t remember him calling out Elam for his ablism. I’ll give you some AVfM and Spearhead posts if you’d like and I fully expect to see you vociferously complain there too, being the great defender of the disabled you suddenly are… xD

Feminists DO call other feminists out on ablism (just look what happened to David, whether ppl think it was fair or not), or what happened on this very forum about “insane” and “batshit”… MRAs seem to only call feminists out on ablism, just like they only call feminists out on racism, but are perfectly fine with racism, ablism, transphobia, homophobia, misogyny, hell they’re even okay with misandry in their own movement xD
