Sex Advice From Rush Limbaugh Will Keep Conservatives From Ever Multiplying

Last updated on March 23rd, 2013 at 12:17 am

Rush started off by announcing that half of his brain was behind his back (yikes), and then he began mocking Charlie Rose for discussing the “new feminism”.

“I just sit here, my mouth just falls open… It is up to men to understand more, to do more, to say more, to feel more, to say more, than women do, to be fully respected and understood so that women will go to bed with us is what he means.”

Transcript:

RUSH: Here’s Charlie Rose. And listen to Charlie. He had to wrap up the interview with the women on his show today with Gayle King, and they were talking about the new feminism. Here’s what Charlie Rose said that men have to do.

ROSE: It is incumbent on men to appreciate more and to do more and have the same responsibilities that women do.

RUSH: I just sit here, my mouth just falls open. Will you play that again? It is up to men to understand more, to do more, to explain more, to say more, to feel more, to touch more, to be more, to be fully respected and understood so that women will go to bed with us, is what he means.

ROSE: It is incumbent on men to appreciate more and to do more and have the same responsibilities that women do.

RUSH: Appreciate more and to do more and understand the absolute hell women’s lives are, because if we don’t, we’ll never get ’em in the sack. Yes, dear, yes dear, yes dear, yes dear, can we go to bed now?

We call this projection. Rush can’t imagine a world in which he would bother trying to understand women as human beings — perhaps try to understand the struggles of his own sisters or female staffers or grandmother or mother — unless it led to sex.

Ironic that Rush can’t see how he is insulting women by announcing that they are nothing other than sexual objects to be conquered, thereby proving exactly why women do not want to go to bed with men who think like him and why most women in this country find him offensive.

Do I think that many men, particularly younger men, might be putting on a show about caring about women’s issues in order to gain their approval and hence have a better shot at bed? I know men like Rush think this, but I don’t agree. What were the mostly male Anonymous doing in Steubenville if not standing up for women’s freedom with nothing to gain? I have plenty of male friends who support women’s issues and support my writing about them, with nothing to gain but their own self-respect.

Let’s face it: Most men are not Archie Bunker wannabes.

Rush Limbaugh embodies a puffed up, faux masculinity that’s based on his own insecurities. Clearly, without his money and fame, Rush wouldn’t be much of a ladies’ man. He lacks the characteristics women are drawn to like warmth, humor and intelligence and he can’t and could never rely upon his physicality to overcome his personal shortcomings. He has money and fame to offer, and those things are as superficial as his focus on having sex as the ultimate get.

No, Charlie Rose isn’t trying to understand women in order to bed them. Rose has his own charming traits, he doesn’t need to mislead and trick women. When you make money by jacking up the seething resentment and confusion about the changes in the world, you have to insult both men and women by insinuating they are all like you.

And Rush’s reliable and consistent misogyny assumes that women don’t ever want to have sex; they must be tricked into it; they must be lied to in order to succumb. Wherever did he get that idea?

Plenty has been written about Rush’s insults of women, but he’s also insulting the many men who are nothing like him. Rush’s assumption that other men are as desperate and empty as he is predictable and sad, but also inaccurate.

The only good news is that if conservative men take Rush Limbaugh’s advice they will never have sex with a woman again.
