After spending months savaging Sandra Fluke as a lazy slut, you knew Rush Limbaugh was going to chime and say some really stupid things about the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling. Like the only reason a man would support access to birth control for women is because they then get consequence-free sex.
“Here’s the thing, women have demanded independence and power and feminism and all this, and now demanding everybody pay,” the conservative host opined, adding that he had realized over the weekend that young men also supported contraception coverage.
“Today’s young men are totally supportive of somebody else buying women their birth control pills because make sure the women are — sex is what it’s all about it!” he insisted. “Sex, sex, sex. That’s what it’s all about. Everybody wants it, and whatever it takes to make it safe. And if it takes the taxpayers buying women birth control, the men are for it too.”
“It’s cheap insurance, and if this is what women want before they’ll have sex, fine,” Limbaugh continued. “We were brought up with the idea that sex has consequences, and that it’s somewhat special. And that if you want something, you provide it yourself, you don’t ask somebody else.”
Let me repeat something some may have forgotten: Rush Limbaugh was caught with illegal viagra, which he had procured by having other people get it for him under their own name, while returning from a trip to the Dominican Republic, a country well known for its sex tourism industry.
