Loving Sluts, Hating Liars

I love sluts. Growing up as an altar boy and later attending an all-boys high school taught me to appreciate girls and later, women who have been on the receiving end of that epithet – usually without deserving it – as if being sexual is a bad thing. It’s not, at least to a healthy heterosexual young man who spent his first year of college living in his girlfriend’s dorm room. It took years of expensive therapy to undo what she did for free in just two semesters but I’d do it all again if I could go back.

What’s not to like about sluts? A slut is a powerful woman who knows what she wants then gets it. She doesn’t need to trick a man to get it for her. A slut is independent and comfortable in her own skin. Sure she will have some insecurities but she hides them and controls them, showing them only when it is advantageous or safe to do so. The sexual component that the epithet describes is celebrated in men, but somehow we’re stuck with this prudish term that’s supposed to be hurtful. Really? Sure you call my kid a slut and I’ll probably punch you or more likely, get you audited by the IRS, but I’d do the same if you called my kid a homo, and there’s nothing wrong with homosexuality in my book at least. What’s wrong with an independent, self-assured, sexual woman? Explain to me how that’s supposed to be a bad thing? A suicide bomber might think 72 virgins is his idea of paradise but just one is my idea of hell.

So Rush Limbaugh, a man the Left has been trying to take down for at least a quarter century, calls a woman a slut for claiming she requires a Catholic school charging her $50,000 a year to pay an additional $1000 a year for contraception that runs counter to Catholic doctrine. Now Rush and I are different generations. He’s an elderly baby boomer, I’m a middle aged Gen X-er. Calling a woman a slut means something to him because when he was growing up sex outside of marriage was frowned upon, and a woman’s reputation meant a lot more. A term like “slut” attached to such a woman could damage that reputation, in some cases irreparably. I grew up in a different decade, one where kids of both sexes were sexually active at a younger age. It was a different era, a full generation after the Women’s Liberation movement burned bras, played tennis matches against male chauvinist pigs, and whatever else they did. Fast forward a few decades and most of the “sluts” I knew and loved are now happily married with kids. They aren’t called sluts today, they are called “soccer moms”, “entrepreneurs”, and “doctors”.

Rush’s real mistake was to be a man of his time. Were he my age he wouldn’t have called her Sandra Fluke a “slut”. The thought wouldn’t have crossed his mind. Instead he would have called her what Robert Stacy McCain, a man closer to my age, does: “A lying liberal bitch.” In his piece McCain explains how Fluke perjured herself in front of Congress, and how the Republicans got rolled by the Democrats into allowing her to testify at the last moment. Instead of talking about forcing a private Catholic school to pay for abortions (don’t forget: the morning after pill called a “contraceptive” by the pharmaceutical companies and liberals kills an innocent human life that began hours before at conception according to the Catholic church), we could have been talking about what crimes Fluke would be facing for having perjured herself to Congress and how her testimony made the Democrats look desperate. Granted, that’s what would have happened if the mainstream media investigated Fluke half as much as they investigated “Joe the Plumber” Samuel Wurzelbacher after he spoke truth to power in 2008 by asking the questions they were too timid to ask then candidate Obama. Of course we live in a world where liberals and the mainstream media they control pull the full Sergeant Schultz from Hogan’s Heroes (“I zee nussing! Nussing!”) when they consider their own bias.

But then Rush spoke and that was it. He became the story, and the Left has what they love more than anything: a martyr, just one who isn’t dead, and who really wasn’t hurt all that badly. In fact, one that isn’t hurt at all because she’s a complete liar and would only be hurt if a) she was a real student and b) really needed contraceptives and c) was too stupid to figure out that she could get them for free from Planned Parenthood and a dozen other organizations liberals fund with tax payer money.

But lying sack of excrement Fluke is, she is no slut. I hung out with sluts. I knew sluts. Sluts were good friends of mine. Sandra Fluke is no slut.

UPDATE: Evidently Fluke is being represented by former Obama administration officials as well as celebrity ambulance chaser attorney Gloria Allred.

    That is incorrect. Birth control varies considerably from woman to woman due to a number physiological reasons and side effects. That’s why they require a doctor’s presciption.

    While I completely disagree with the Soros-funded website’s analysis, the cost is immaterial considering that all contraception, from a lowly condom to the most costly sterilization procedure, run counter to Catholic beliefs. This is not a minor issue: the sanctity of human life lies at the core of Catholicism. One may as well force a Jew to eat pork or a Muslim to pray towards Tel Aviv.

    If Ms. Fluke can’t afford the cost of contraception while attending a $50k Catholic school, then she should either get it free from Planned Parenthood or numerous other organizations that provide low cost birth control, decline coverage from Georgetown and buy an insurance plan that provides such coverage, or focus on her career. After all abstinence is free.

    That’s fine. They don’t have to use them. If someone is paying an insurance premium or it represents part of their pay, then they deserve the same access to health care that others do with similar policies.

  13. Scott Kirwin:

    “...they deserve the same access to health care that others do with similar policies.”
    That can apply to the employers too. The Catholic Church deserves to fund health care for its employees and students the same way Jewish and Muslim groups do. These groups are allowed to opt out of the insurance because they are religious institutions that “inculcate religious values” and limit their scope to their own members.

    So Jewish groups don’t have to pay for contraception. Muslims don’t either. In fact these groups can opt out of Obamacare completely if they wish. Add Catholics to the list and problem solved.

    Georgetown is a Catholic institution. If contraception is that important to Ms. Fluke there are plenty of non-religious schools that can provide her with just as good an education and all the subsidized birth control she wants.

    That’s right. The rule applies equally to everyone. Religions groups do not have to meet the requirement, except insofar as they engage in business with the public. For instance, some religions may believe that men and women shouldn’t mingle, and keep them separated during religious services. That is legal. However, if the religious institution operates a store open to the public, or receives government funds, then it has to serve everyone equally.
