What not to call a woman
By now, you’ve undoubtedly read or heard about Rush Limbaugh and his ‘ill-chosen words’.
I won’t repeat them, because they’re insulting, denigrating and reprehensible to the dignity of any woman alive. Ms. Fluke was one of many he has attacked, but this episode was an exceptionally vicious one in its’ intent.
For years, he has gotten away more or less with his ‘schtick’ of calling women any name he can think of-“feminazis”, or worse. He’s insulted a few other women as well, such as Amy Carter, Chelsea Clinton and a host of famous women who happen to be in his books as ‘loud mouths’ or even worse, ‘activists’.
He seems to have issues with women of any stripe who happen to be intelligent, and opinionated. He doesn’t like it when they talk about their rights, or their ideas.
He really doesn’t like it when they talk about being women, or having certain ‘problems’ that he and any man alive does not and will never have.
“Feminism was established to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream.”
“Women were doing quite well in this country before feminism came along”
“Militant feminists are pro-choice because it’s their ultimate avenue of power over men. And believe me, to them it is a question of power. It is their attempt to impose their will on the rest of society, particularly on men.”
What is he scared of? A woman speaks her mind, and he goes off on her.
I guess his four wives would probably have a clue why he is so terribly nasty toward women. I wonder if they have ever heard the same words directed at them as he described Sandra Fluke?
I somehow don’t think so. Three of them have divorced him. The fourth probably wishes she could, especially after he ‘misspoke’, because it seems that he is one of those men who cannot tolerate a woman who talks back.
Only now, we’re talking back:
“Shut up, Rush, you misogynist former drug addict.”
For you to call others insulting names invites the same from those you have done it to far too often.
Or as you wrote in your apology:
“What happened to personal responsibility and accountability? Where do we draw the line? If this is accepted as the norm, what will follow?”
I draw it here-no more hate speech against women!
Apology NOT accepted.
