Fluke looks frustrated as she tries to present her opinions on contraceptives in court.
Sandra Fluke testified taxpayers should pay for her contraceptives. Limbaugh went ballistic. Why?

We are hearing about Sandra Fluke in the news recently regarding her recent highly profiled incident involving Rush Limbaugh's inflammatory comments about her. What caused Limbaugh's outburst? Fluke testified before the Democratic House of Representatives expressing her opinion on why she believed it was essential that the government provide free contraceptives, stating that she uses $3000 worth of birth control while in law school and is going broke keeping up.

In response, Limbaugh did the math and inferred that she must be in the sexual business because $3000 dollars buys 3000 condoms, and for three-year law program that means she'd need 1000 a year. Considering there are only 365 days in a year...well, you get the gist of the story and implications. Limbaugh was explicit in his choice of words. There are many more facts to this story, but you generally understand. Due to Limbaugh's statements, Fluke is now a public person. Sandra Fluke & The Power Of Shame

How would you deal with suddenly becoming a household name? Would you gather up the attention and make the most of it, or would you prefer to stay out of the limelight? Let us look at Sandra Fluke's name to see how she is reacting. First of all, Fluke likes to be the expert in all she does, as she feels she knows the most, or at the very least, more than most. Just as we look up to doctors, Sandra would like for us to look up to her. So, in this respect, it is not surprising that she thought she knew enough to testify before the Democratic House of Representatives. Sandra Fluke & The S.L.U.T. Hypocrisy

Fluke has made herself as likable as she can and would not consider changing herself to get liked. She made herself pleasant, so if someone doesn't like her, there is something wrong with him or her...not with Fluke. Sandra is dedicated to making the world a better place. Like others that also wish to improve the world, it is according to her definition of what is wrong with the world, not anyone else's. She can be a workaholic and yet she makes an equally great couch potato.

The most interesting thing about her name though is that she doesn't know her own worth or value; therefore the underlying motivations behind her actions are an attempt to prove to herself who she is and that she does have value. Interestingly enough, people who know who they are don't have to shout it to the world, as they do not crave outside approval nor recognition of their worth.

People who don't have that clear sense of their own value often attempt to show that value to others, so that they can get a sense of themselves as it is reflected back through others. There are multiple ways this need for others to validate her self worth can be accomplished. Perhaps she is sexually as active as she is in order to gain approval from men? It does not need to be through sexual unions, even though that is a fairly common way of seeking approval.
