The Rush Limbaugh and Sandra Fluke Story

When does freedom of speech go too far? Since it is freedom of speech how can there be a limit, seems to be a contradiction of some sort. Recently Rush Limbaugh did some name calling to a college student of Georgetown University. This has now become The Rush Limbaugh and Sandra Fluke Story. Sandra Fluke is a college student about 30 years old who had an opinion, I guess just like Limbaugh. She presented to congress why birth control should be a part of health insurance. Seems rational enough, but Limbaugh had an opinion as well. In his response to her movement, he took it as a jerk that he is and called her a slut and prostitute. On his radio show, his argument was “why should taxpayers pay for females to have sex, so that made her a slut/prostitute since that is the profession that gets paid to do just that.  Rush absolutely had no right to do the name calling. Then again was it not his right to express his opinion? It is his radio show. A controversy because of the fact he doesn’t even know this woman, besides the fact she has a voice like him. The fact that Limbaugh is, he is totally disregarding the health issue behind this entire idea. Many women as me not only take birth control as a conception but also for many healing purposes as well. Irregular periods, ovaries, and the list can continue. This is why I was annoyed at Rush for his total ignorance.  As a man, how can he understand fully how it is to be a woman? Limbaugh’s apology (if you want to call it that) was just an excuse to justify what he said. It is even a worse feeling to realize the audience Rush caters too, MEN! My argument is don’t you want your girlfriend to be protection as much as possible, or even if taking birth control has helped her periods now you know when to stay away (joke).  There is a way bigger picture here to me that is so disgusting with Limbaugh bald headed prevented ways. Wanting to watch Sandra have sex using her birth control deserves a slap. The conservative jock even called her Susan, really showing how he just doesn’t have a clue about this scenario but then has the biggest attitude towards it. Now if Rush Limbaugh gets fired because of this, I wonder who will be opinionated left in this country.
