Sluts, Rush Limbaugh, Womens Rights, Unite and Stand Together, Sister Sluts Unite

It is time, women of America, to take a stand. Rise up against a frightening new development in our country that is taking us back to the middle ages. Have we fought for our equal rights for nothing?

 

The rhetoric against women in this country right now is frightening and if we don’t do something about it, we are not going to like the results.


Rush Limbaugh, who recently called Sandra Fluke a “slut” for standing up for her right for birth control for her personal reproductive freedom also said she should stop having sex.  Excuse me?!

 

Are we really having this national conversation? I feel like I am in some weird time warp. Men still have the power to call us sluts because we want to have sex?

Sisters, its time to take a stand, rise up from our desks, our board rooms, our rocking chairs and our kitchen tables and clean up this mess. It might sound something like: “Now, boys, frankly, we’ve heard enough. It’s time to act like grown-ups and stop calling the girls mean names.”
 

We might need to remind the men sitting at the congressional round tables, “Now boys, run along and deal with something more important – go clean up the financial crisis right now!”
 

We only have ourselves to blame. We thought these issues of women’s rights were settled already.  We looked away from the work still left to be done.


It’s time for us to show our strength as women. Dont be afraid.  Stand up for your rights.  Tallk about how you feel when someone calls you a name.  Own your sexuality.  Be a slut.

Blog, sing, tweet, text, write, talk, vote. Don’t let your voice be drowned out. Be heard, stand up for your rights as a woman and start a new movement.


To my slut sisters everywhere – Unite!
