Slut has a whole new meaning thanks to Rush Limbaugh. When you attacked Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown Law Student because she wanted to include birth control as part of health care coverage, you stripped the word of it’s traditional cruel meaning. Now all women who have ever attempted to decide when and how many children they would have, and with whom, are now sluts.
Slut is a loaded word, a word used for many years to brand women for exercising sexual freedom. Men are not considered sluts. We don’t even have a word in for men who like a lot of sex with different partners. Therefore their behavior is okay – not so surprising is it?
The thought that a woman might actually enjoy sex for its sex sake is so scary to some men that they will do anything to shut us up. You even invent words to tell us how sinful our behavior is.
Rush, thanks for removing one of the uglier of those words from our vocabulary. After your tirade, the word slut has become a badge of honor, a rallying cry for all women who demand freedom.
Since you don’t approve of sex for fun, you probably won’t mind that women insist that Viagara be banned from health insurance reimbursement. If we can’t enjoy sex, neither can you.
