The Relative Issues Behind Rush Limbaugh’s ‘Slut’ Remarks

Posted by on Mar 6, 2012

There has been heated debate about female slander forever, not just in politics but the entertainment industry, as well. While reality television divas are quick to throw a punch or slap the cheek of any chick who dare calls her a “bitch,” rappers–both female and male alike–top the charts with tracks that glorify being the “baddest bitch” in the game.

Fluke appeared on ABC’s The View, saying that his apology falls on deaf ears. And she was right. If anything, hip-hop artists continue to call women bitches and hoes while other males in the public eye are now referring to women as sluts. Limbaugh’s outburst has simply exacerbated the problem.

There is meaning to every title. Fluke, is first and foremost, a daughter, a potential mother, a could-be-lawyer and a woman with enough sense to demand protection so that she could prevent a pregnancy she is not yet prepared for. Her testimony before Congress was not an open plea to open her legs more. She was made to be the victim in a political tirade, but in the end it was Limbaugh’s words that cost him. –Adelle Platon
