You Dirty Sluts

I posted this to my Facebook and tumblr today. I'm reposting it here instead of current events or politics, because I think this isn't just political or newsy. This is a huge women's issue that transcends mere political debate.
Quote:
WOMEN. LADIES. GIRL-FOLK. Do you use birth control? Are you a slut? If your answers were "yes" and "no", or even if you ever have used or plan to ever use birth control, and think that using that fact alone to brand you as a slut or a prostitute is not just appalling, but offensive to women everywhere... If you have a mother, or sister, or daughter, or girlfriend, or wife, who has taken birth control... PLEASE find a way to make your voice heard. Sign the petition to have Rush Limbaugh taken off Armed Forces Radio. Join the boycott and pressure against his corporate sponsors. And most important of all, let the extremists in the Republican party know that standing by such unabashedly sexist, discriminatory, offensive language or policies is unforgivable by anyone who knows a woman.

well, I am barefoot, and I made taco's for dinner. We ate with our fingers. That probably qualifies.

I don't know anything about Armed Forces Radio. Is it supported at all by taxpayer money? If so, it shouldn't have any partisan stuff on it, unless it's balanced out with another extremist blowhard, but from the left.

Yes, but are you a blowhard?

I would consider the fact that the slutty action you're involved in doesn't have any risk of producing a baby birth control.

Is it more offensive to call someone a slut than a bitch? Or are both equally mysogynistic when used by a male in a discusiion/argument/debate scenario?

slut is much worse than bitch, imho

My take is that "slut" is a judgement about the value of the person, while "bitch" just means you don't like them at that moment.

I have the idea of the slut harms herself, a bitch harms others.
