Sextra Credit and the Rehabilitation of Sluts
By Jeannie DeAngelis
Once again the left has inadvertently vindicated Rush Limbaugh. On the Facebook page "Planned Parenthood Info for Teens," there is a link to a Planned Parenthood site with a page called "Info for Teens." In the "Ask the Expert" section, our tax dollars are used to school kiddies on after-school activities like masturbation, oral sex, and "blue waffles" (more commonly known as sexually transmitted diseases). For visual learners, there are also links to colorful roadmap-type "diagrams" of male and female genitalia.
One Facebook post asks the question: "Why are girls who have sex with a lot of guys called sluts and guys called players?" In response, the unofficial guide to Savage U, MTV Extras Sextra Credit teacher Francisco Ramirez, obliges truth-seeking high school students by providing answers to questions on the fine art of sluttery. Francisco reminds confused teens that "there is a little bit of slut in all of us," so why not just embrace our inner sluttiness?
Speaking of Sandra Fluke, instead of attending Class 6 -- "The Reproduction Right" -- in the Statutory Rights of Copyright Owners fall series at Georgetown Law School, the reproductive rights advocate should have played hooky and joined the kids in Sextra Credit w/ Francisco. If only the War on Women's Joan of Arc had done what the Facebook teaser suggests and occupied "a seat in the class and let Francisco school [her] with his lecture on slutty slander!," the entire Rush Limbaugh slut imbroglio could have been avoided.
For the record, the sexpert/provost of Savage U is Dan Savage, the gay activist who, at an anti-bullying speech, told students in the audience to "learn to ignore the bullshit in the Bible about gay people." Savage then bullied the offended Christian students who walked out by calling them "pansy-asses." Sandra Fluke, who took on the pansy-assed Catholic hierarchy on abortion and contraception, would likely accept as gospel Dan Savage's faculty member Francisco's evolved definition of the true meaning of the word "slut."
In Ramirez's S.L.U.T. class, the sexpert stresses that "people who feel judged, isolated and weird about their bodies and about sex" are usually the ones who interpret being called a slut in a negative way. If Ms. Fluke felt "vilified by Limbaugh's" comments, it could mean that Sandra's view of her own sexuality is in dire need of positive reinforcement.
During his slut class, Mr. Ramirez says that calling girls who have a lot of sex sluts "makes zero sense" and lacks "fairness," and that sluts everywhere should "stand up for equality [and] stop the slut-shaming." Francisco also provides context by teaching a chapter on the history of sluts. If Ms. Fluke had been up to date on her slut history, the feminist would have known that "400 years ago [slut] was an affectionate term for a housemaid."
Considering all this new information on sluts, it could be that Sandra Fluke and the whole "war on women" contingency misunderstood what Rush Limbaugh actually meant. It may be that Limbaugh's reaction to Sandra's demand for truckloads of free contraceptives wasn't an insult at all, but rather a complimentary acknowledgement of Fluke's healthy proclivity for playful promiscuity. Wasn't it Ramirez who pointed out that "[c]alling someone a slut is good"?.
Furthermore, even President Obama could tone down his "slut-shaming" a bit. After Rush Limbaugh insulted Fluke, Obama took time out of his busy day to call the law school grad. The president praised Ms. Fluke on her commitment to citizenship and mentioned to her that her parents should be proud their daughter demanded free contraceptives on national TV.
If only America's most ardent Planned Parenthood president had attended Francisco Ramirez's class prior to making that call, maybe he would have shared how proud he would be to have his own young daughters referred to in similar terms. And for reasons other than "speaking out about the concerns of American women," he could have congratulated the Fluke family on having a daughter associated with a word some liberals apparently feel "should only be used for good."
And so, after a nationwide hullabaloo over calling Sandra Fluke a slut, we come to find out that the insightful conservative radio talk show host may have actually complimented the Georgetown coed -- which leaves Rush once again being vindicated by the very progressives who consider him their arch-nemesis.
If Planned Parenthood, Barack Obama's beloved abortion provider, approves of the word "slut" being used as a tribute to sexually liberated women, it's Rush Limbaugh who deserves the public apology, not Sandra Fluke.
