In the US, girls are supposed to be sexy, but not sexual. In Norway, girls are expected to be both sexy and sexual — the problem is when they're horny. A "horny girl" is still very much taboo; obscene, too much. Even in so-called gender democratic and sexually liberated Norway....more
Admittedly, casual sex isn’t for everyone. In the case of women, most of us were raised from a very young age that sex was something that came after love and that commitment we made with our bodies was some sort of lifetime connection we made with our partner. As you women we learn, with some disappointment, this is not always the case. In fact it may never be the case. ...more
Rush Limbaugh's so-called apology isn't an apology at all. It's a way to move the limelight away from his evident bias, except he fails when this this bias crops up again in the second paragraph of his statement, in which Limbaugh disregards, once again, the many other uses for contraceptive pills, and dismisses women's concerns outright as something not worthy of being heard by the government.
I am a huge fan of Las Vegas magicians Penn & Teller. I have loved them for years and years and years but have never had the chance to see them live. For the uninitiated, Penn is the big tall one while Teller doesn't talk. At least not on stage. Teller is the magician, Penn is the distraction.

Initially, it is unclear whether Limbaugh repeatedly cites this fraudulent article as a means to justify his dishonest tirade or if he truly failed to do the appropriate research regarding Fluke's remarks, but as his show continues and Limbaugh plays more clips from Sandra Fluke's congressional hearing, it becomes evident that he is picking and choosing what he wants his listeners to hear, in order to corroborate the allegation he made in a previous show that Fluke is nothing but a slut who wants everyone else to pay for her birth control.
Rush Limbaugh has said that the only reason for a woman to take birth control is because she's having so much sex that she must be a slut and a prostitute. I will be boycotting every company that sponsors Rush Limbaugh.
Even if you have been a fan of his, surely we can all agree that this crosses the line.
In response to criticism, Limbaugh doubled down....more
Rush Limbaugh calls a law student a prostitute because she testified at a hearing in favor of requiring insurances to cover family planning."What does it say about the college co-ed Sandra Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex? What does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute."...more
“It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception.” Dear God, did I read that correctly? Did I hear that correctly?These are the comments of a supposedly educated man talking about a 23 year old woman. The man? Rush Limbaugh. The woman? Sandra Fluke....more
