Sluts Unite Against Republicans, Rush Limbaugh
Watch out Republicans, here come the sluts.
Womens rights activists are banding together to Rock the Slut Vote in an online effort to register women to vote and cast their ballots against Republicans in 2012.
If the GOP thinks that throwing the word slut at us at this point is going to silence women they have another thing coming, said Susan McMillan Emry, the sites founder.
Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh thrust the derogatory word into the political arena in February when he called law student Sandra Fluke a slut for testifying before Congress in support of contraceptives.
Following the national backlash over Limbaughs name-calling, Rock the Slut Vote is now aiming to diffuse the offensive term, Emry said.
Taking a vein from comedian Jeff Foxworthy and his You might be a Redneck if jokes, Emrys website gives visitors 22 reasons why You might be a slut, including if youve ever used contraception or if youre still downloading Dixie Chicks music or if you dont go to church.
The site aims to re-appropriate the word slut so that Limbaugh and other Republicans cannot use it to bully and silence women, Emry said.
Its really about taking the power away from that word more than it is about Rush Limbaugh, she said. He gave the word the notoriety but we are trying to take it back.
Emry said the Rush Limbaugh mess coupled with the Susan G. Komen Foundations decision to cut Planned Parenthood funding and recent efforts in state Legislatures to restrict access to abortions and contraceptives compelled her to create the site after 56 years on the political sidelines.

Remember when women wanted to be “Ladies”.
It was better time.
Ladies didn’t want tattoos, tongue piercings, they were discreet about their sexual practices.Some even wore white at their weddings because they earned the right.
And she did not speak “in support of contraceptives”,
she spoke of using coercive force of government to force others to PAY FOR her contraceptives.
No they are not very smart. Witness they are the only demographic (sex) group which voted for Obama in the majority. Even today after we know how big a disaster he is they still favor him.
What better definition of stupid do you need?
Glad they’ve accepted the label finally. Now I don’t have to feel guilt when I call a slut a slut.
:: He gave the word the notoriety ::
Well, not exactly. Rush gave the word as an “attenion-getter”. The Dhimmicrats and the NAGs took offense and made the hue & cry in the negative sense.
IRRC, Rush called her a "Slut" for saying she needed thousands of dollars each year for contraceptives.
"slut (sl t). n. 1. a. A person, especially a woman, considered sexually promiscuous."
According to this dictionary definition, Fluck has identified herself as a "slut". Rush's main issue is that Fluke wants US to pay for her promiscuity supplies.
Rush should not have used that term, as he himself finally did admit. However, this is of course a completely inaccurate depiction of the context - first of all, she did not "testify before Congress" - it was a Democrat Party caucus meeting designed to look like a committee hearing. Secondly, she did not merely testify in support of contraception - she testified that she saw on the faces of women all over her campus pain because they weren't getting free contraception and many women were all but going bankrupt because of it, so essentially she wanted other people to be forced to subsidize her sex life and those of others, including having religious institutions have their basic freedoms under the Constitution be disregarded.
They define the term.
Sandra Fluke is not a slut. She's simply a girl with a great deal of experience between the sheets, one who expects other people to pay for her bedroom activities, because that's what we're here for - to work so she can play.
The Obama surrogates are picking up the failed memes and running with them to see if they’ll gain any more traction.
Vindicating Rush by responding like a mob of empty headed bimbos. The irony is almost unbearable.
You can’t fix stupid.
Round heels and bed flopping, while the normal taxpayer picks up the bill for their contraceptives, abortions, and STD drugs.
In Gen 3:16, the curse to the woman was that she’d desire to be in the man’s role, but he’d still rule over her.
Witch doctors need demons to banish.
You summed it up! Reminiscent of the lib women whose hero was Bill Clinton and said they would be overjoyed if they could service him same way Monica did.
Yes indeed... I cannot remember her name but Rush mentions here from time to time.
