Pilgrim Pathways: Notes for a Diaspora People

Incarnational Discipleship

Radio Gasbags Don’t Get to Call Women “Sluts” and Then Think Fake Apologies Will Cut It!

I link to this article, “I’ve Spent Two Days Trying to Convince My 16 Year Old Daughter That She Is Not a Slut.”  The article says it all. A young girl is prescribed a low dosage hormone contraceptive for medical reasons, but after Rush Limbaugh attacks on women who use birth control, the “popular girls” at her high school accuse her of being a “slut,” and “whore” who just wants to have sex with the entire male population of the school.  Even if the daughter was on birth control for pregnancy prevention, it would be no one’s business outside of her family and whatever medical and spiritual guides they consult.  As a father of daughters, I am furious at the politicians and the media jerks who seek power and profit by degrading women. Read the article. Get mad. And remember those who would drag women into the mud. Do NOT forget!

Oh, and just in case, you think that Rush Gasbag’s lame “apology” (even Forbes called it a “non-apology apology”) to Ms. Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown University Law School student who testified to Congress (after first being denied such testimony) on the need for insurance to cover contraception, here is a list of ALL the slander Rush heaped on her for 3 days! I hope she sues him for every penny he’s got!

  1. All right, okay, valid points well taken, outrage etc.
    But for christ’s sake, who did that poster??
    It should read “Up Yours”, not “Up Your’s”.

    • Yeah, I didn’t make it and I noticed the misspelling immediately, but don’t know how to correct it on the poster. Sorry.
