Promiscuous: not restricted to one sexual partner(Merriam Webster, Tenth edition 1993)
Slut: a woman who has had many sexual partners(Merriam Webster Learner’s Dictionary)
Great indignation spreads across the land. A famous blabbermouth, who calls a spade a spade, has called a slut a slut. But in our values-neutral society, we embrace a new normal: multiple sexual partners and the one-night-stand.
The consequence? Today’s young women don’t recognize that each time they spread their legs to welcome a new lover, they inch up the slut scale. “Slut” is outmoded lingo and so, they are sluts no more.
But let me back track and bring you along.
Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke, past president of Georgetown Law Students for Reproductive Justice, testified before Congressional Democrats that she and other Georgetown women “have faced financial, emotional, and medical burdens” due to the university’s contraception policy.
As a Jesuit school, Georgetown University health facilities refuse to provide contraception and abortifacient drugs as per Catholic tenets. This is in conflict with Obama’s healthcare behemoth that requires what is, in essence, contraception-on-demand.
Fluke testified that she wants Georgetown to capitulate, compromise its religious doctrine and give her tax money in the form of paid contraception under Obama-care. Thus subsidizing her sex life. Money for sex, hmmm, sounds familiar.
Consequently she was awarded slut status, bordering on prostitution, by radio giant Rush Limbaugh.
In her plea for Obama-care tax money she skipped the fact that the local Planned Parenthood office is 2.5 miles away, a convenient nine-minute drive from the Georgetown University campus. PPA often and eagerly provides students and poorer women all manner of low-cost (sometimes free) contraceptive accoutrements, as well as abortions.
Ms. Fluke’ testified that she and her sexual confederates need as much as $1000 a year for contraception. Pills cost from $15 to $30 monthly according to Planned Parenthood. That averages $270 yearly. Add condoms, spermicides, sponges, morning-after drugs, etc. and the cost increases a blip.
That’s a lot of sex. When does she have time to study? And what about her boyfriends? Why should we taxpayers support their sexual appetites?
Enter indignation and Barak Hussein Obama. Ms. Fluke can rest assured that her designation as “slut” has been rescinded by none other than the President of the United States.
The president came to the rescue our deflowered damsel with a personal phone call that shifted attention away from her sexual pursuits. He substituted the stinger “slut” with the noble “citizen,” who merely spoke out on an issue of public policy. Obama also threw “reprehensible and crude” at Limbaugh to assuage Ms. Fluke’s embarrassment.
“What was really personal for me was that [Obama] said to tell my parents that they should be proud,” Fluke said after the call.
Really? How times have change.
“Proud” is not what my parents would have been had I testified before God and country that I want $1000 a year from taxpayers because of my unmarried sex-capades.
Rush Limbaugh’s assessment of Sandra Fluke was unnecessarily harsh, especially in these unfortunate times of sexual permissiveness. Ms. Fluke is, after all, a child of our sexually seduced culture.
But Obama is doing this maligned lady no favors. Having the Leader of the Free World phone you up with words of presidential approval only contributes to Sandra Fluke’s advancing moral and spiritual decay, a prognosis of which she is ignorant.
