And honorary member of the Republican
Congress, class of '94.
Please make it stop.
Please make the men stop telling us that rape is a gift, but voting means the end of the world as we know it. Please make them stop voting to take away our health care. And please, pretty please, make impotent gasbag and coiner of the word "feminazi" Rush Limbaugh shut the fuck up:
I mean, [the Lena Dunham ad is] insulting to women. It again looks at women as monolithic sex machines who want to make sure they've got unending birth control pills and then a free trip to Planned Parenthood the next day, all paid for by Obama. If I were a woman today, I would feel insulted each and every day, the way they look at women, all thinking the same way, all wanting the same things. I think that ad -- some people look at it, they'll think it's cool, that it's hip and it's representative of the current modern day pop culture. But I think it's an insult to women everywhere.
I mean, where the hell is Gloria Steinem? Gloria, is this what you all have been fighting for all your lives, an ad like this, an appeal to women as sex machines? Is that what feminazi-ism was all about? Is that what all the equal pay stuff was all about? Is that why you wanted to storm your way into every all-male club and all-male institution and everything that you felt you were being discriminated against, was this what you were hoping would be the fruition, the result of all of your hard work?
That's right. In mansplaining to women what is insulting to women, he referred to the women's movement as "feminazi-ism." Because that is totally not offensive at all.
And this is the guy who was once made an honorary member of the congressional class of '94 by, that's right, the Republican Party.
That really sums it up, doesn't it?
You know what to do. Please give $3 to each of our Daily Kos-endorsed women candidates for the House and Senate, so we can send more, better women to Congress to fight back against the Republicans' War on Women.
