Rock The Slut Vote 2012

Feminists and women right’s activists have banned together to form Rock The Slut Vote.  Rush Limbaugh called law student Sandra Fluke a “slut” for testifying before Congress in support of contraceptives. Women everywhere are banning together to “diffuse” the disrespectful term. The founder of the movement wants to change the meaning of the word, so that it can’t be used to bully women.

Waronwomen.com has more information. The website helps women get registered to vote and shows other women in your area who are supporting the cause. It also gives the names and phone numbers of the Secretary of State, and gives you information on how to talk to local representatives.

The website jokes that “You might the a slut if… you’ve ever used contraception” or “if you don’t go to church.”

I happen to be of the opinion that using birth control makes you smart, not a slut. Go forth, raise hell, and rock the slut vote!

  1. You have a few misconceptions (pun intended). Fluke never testified before Congress – she was denied because she had nothing to say regarding the topic before them. The Democrats worked hard to make it appear it was, but it was simply a news conference set up to appear as if she was testifying. Dems main tacit has always been to misconstrue, obfuscate and lie.
    Rush didn’t so much “call” her a slut but inferred her wanting to have someone pay for her sexual activity was ‘slutty’.. I guess you didn’t hear the show.
    “Radical feminists” can try to change the language, but a slut will always be defined in Websters as a slut and not something one wants to tell Granny about, I would think.
    No one has suggested BC be taken from women … or girls, but that it might be a responsibleidea if they paid for it themselves. That would really be a smart idea.

    • Whether she testified or not isn’t the point, the fact the she was called a slut and a prostitute for supporting the use of contraception is. Rush actually apologized and said that he was jokingly calling her a slut – which makes the situation a lot better. The word slut can always have the same definition, as long as it isn’t being directed at women who are standing up for their rights. I don’t believe that I ever mentioned birth control being taken away from women, actually. Paying for it yourself is great. If you’re mature enough to have sex, then you’re mature enough to pay for contraceptives yourself. As long as you aren’t being criticized for using them.

  2. Not to mention all the preposterous notions that were tossed around by GOP candidates during the 2012 campaign. I mean really……A woman cannot get pregnant as a result of a legitimate rape? Because the female body has a built in mechanism that will prevent pregnancy in the event of a Legitimate rape? Can someone from the GOP please tell me what a LEGITIMATE rape is ? Then there is the wonderful addition of if a pregnancy follows a rape then it was meant to do so by God. Really? On what parallel universe is this taught? I suppose then God would be fine with incest as well? Since there are so many young girls who are raped by Fathers or Family Members and become pregnant . But that was planned by God as well then?

    Female Republicans having the audacity to say that they suppose single women don;t understand and have no concept because they are too busy worrying about contraception because they are not married. Insinuating what? That because they are not married they are too busy with contraception to think about anything else. Because obviously their lives revolve around sex. Allowing the inference to being single as opposed to married that what they are fornicators or they sleep around. In either case as far as I am concerned non of their business and certainly their being Republican gives them no standing on passing judgment on anyone. Most of which claim themselves to be Christian and yet are constantly passing judgement. Leading me to believe that they do not read their bibles either.

    I would love to see a logical explanation written for these arguments. SO far all I have seen is evasion and subterfuge not to mention white washing. However, no Legitimate or rational explanations have been offered. Anyone ?
