Can someone explain why “Rush Babes” is a thing that would make any sense?
So Rush Limbaugh called that girl from Georgetown a prostitute a few weeks back, because she dared to say out loud that she would like free birth control, thanks. The National Organization for Women then declared an “Enough Rush” campaign to get this guy off the air.
Rush then decided the next rational step was to start his own women’s group. And call it “Rush Babes.”
So this is all just delightful. According to Limbaugh, women are “babes” (or at least his supporters are babes). They may even look like that sexy silhouette that you see up there (the one that you also see periodically on eighteen wheelers and outside strip clubs.) Total babes.
Except the entire reason he’s getting heat from NOW is that he called a girl a slut because she didn’t want to have to pay for birth control.
So we can be babes, as long as there’s no sex being had? Or is it that we can be babes, but all sex must be procreative? I’m just lost.
Someone. Please. Explain. I am so tired of double standards. And Rush’s facebook page has so many fans. It’s just upsetting.
