Hateful Misogynist Rush Limbaugh Tells Men That Women Mean Yes When They Say No

Another day, another new low reached by bottom-scraping conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh. In this instance, Limbaugh justified rape culture by telling men that no really means yes. On Monday’s broadcast of The Rush Limbaugh Show, Limbaugh discussed the ongoing issues that the NFL has experienced surrounding domestic violence. He then went off on a tangent regarding women sports journalists calling for the NFL to change their culture and how it might mean a rethinking about how we discuss certain issues that affect men and women in today’s society. As one would surmise when it comes to Limbaugh, the hater of ‘feminazis’ felt that females asking for more serious conversations about domestic violence and sexual violence was just more ‘chickification’ and ‘wussification’ of our society and an attempt by women to reprogram men.

After whining about a female sportswriter use the term ‘reprogramming’ when talking about how we discuss certain issues with males as they are growing up, El Rushbo turned his attention to colleges and universities to prove his point that men are being made victims when it comes to sexual violence and accusations of rape. Prior to talking about the rules in place at Ohio State University regarding sexual assault, Rush said men are avoiding higher education now due to the liberal feminist agenda in place. (Sounded to me like Rush was merely justifying his flunking out of college.) In typical Limbaugh fashion, he also blamed Obama for men becoming soft and brought up climate change being a hoax, just because.

Below is what Limbaugh had to say about Ohio State’s rules on sexual assault, courtesy of his website (emphasis mine):

Here’s what consent is at Ohio State. After you and your partner decide that you’re gonna make out or have sex, you agree to do it, then you have to agree on why. “Consent is the act of knowingly, actively and voluntarily agreeing explicitly to engage in sexual activity. Consent must be freely given and can be withdrawn at any time.”

“You have to be sober, not coerced, imaginative, enthusiastic, creative, wanted, informed, mutual, honest, verbal. The absence of ‘no’ does not mean ‘yes.’ It must be asked every step of the way. It cannot be implied or assumed, even in the context of a relationship. Circumstances in which a person CANNOT legally give consent: (No matter what he or she might verbalize): The person is severely intoxicated or unconscious as a result of alcohol or drugs. The person is physically or developmentally disabled. The victim is under the age 13 or is elderly. So as long as the girl is thirteen years old, she can give consent for sex, provided it’s creative and enthusiastic.”

“Consent must be freely given, can be withdrawn at any time, and the absence of ‘no’ does not mean ‘yes.'” How many of you guys, in your own experience with women, have learned that “no” means “yes” if you know how to spot it? Let me tell you something. In this modern world, that is simply not tolerated. People aren’t even gonna try to understand that one. I mean, it used to be said it was a cliche. It used to be part of the advice young boys were given.

I don’t know how men can be held to that Ohio State agreement, policy, anyway, because everybody knows in sex men don’t think with their brains. Not the one in their heads, anyway. It’s just so silly.

 

There you have it. Rush Limbaugh is apparently upset that no means non and does not, in fact, mean yes. In his mind, and the advice he’d give young men, women really mean yes when they tell men no. It is up to the man to keep pressing the issue. Essentially, Limbaugh is justifying sexual assault and date rape. He is saying that men can’t be held to any kind of standard. They can’t be expected to know when women they are sexually attracted to really don’t want to reciprocate their advances. Men are just different than women. They have to be given some leeway, you see. If they are too aggressive or thought that no really meant yes, well that just shouldn’t be held against them. Heck, they aren’t thinking when it comes to sex.

I keep telling myself that nothing Rush says anymore shocks me. This shocked me. It is hard to think that in this day and age, that we have someone who is listened to by millions of people telling his audience that it is a shame that we are telling men that no means no. Limbaugh talked about how we are getting rid of the art of seduction. In Rush’s judgment, seduction is about the man doing whatever he wants and eventually getting a woman to engage in sex with him, by any means necessary. If a woman says no, she is just playing games with the man, because as Rush will tell you, all women are ‘sluts’ and ‘prostitutes’ who can’t keep their legs closed.

Rush Limbaugh is a disgusting individual. While this in itself is not news, you’d think warranting rape would finally be the straw that breaks the camel’s back and gets him removed from the air for good.

  1. He continues to sink lower and lower. What a disgusting, slob/blob of a man. I usually don’t read articles about him as I find him so repulsive – but wanted to comment on this after reading the headline.

  2. Well the liberal eater’s ad revenue must have fell short this month. Take a couple of oxy’s and whine to your fan base.

  3. Its not enough to call this quadruple chins sack of shit idiot advertisers to stop advertising on his outhouse of a show, now is the time to boycott all CLEAR CHANNEL STATIONS.

    ALL OF THEM

  4. I heart radio is clear channel. The tune in radio or rockradio.com apps are killer. Tune in is just a dollar!!!

  5. In order to feel good about themselves, men like Limbaugh need to degrade women. They fear strong and powerful women because powerful women are a threat to their male egos. They like to talk big, but in reality they are terrified of a culture which is now empowering more women.

  6. Rush must be a real “pussy” so to speak, of a man. I doubt he’d know what to do with a real woman…anywhere. Except perhaps, in a restaurant. And that would be to make her pay, as “MANLY” as he purports to be. What a whimp!
    Wonder where he finds those very sick women he marries?

  7. It would be funny to see the tables turned on Rush Limpballs! Can you see some big bubba wanting to eff Rush. Then Rush says no!? “Oh, I guess that means yes by your broadcasts! Hahaha!

  8. Rush Limbaugh got out of fighting in the Vietnam War because he claimed to have had an anal cyst. Yet he thinks that young men today are weak.

  9. and thats because they’re small isignificant men that no DECENT women in her right mind would listen to this or any repub male. They dont believe in nor voted for VAWA! Thats why you have the freedom of rape in our society now more than ever before. And death by guns. ALL Thanks to the GOP COWARDS for that!!!!

  10. Why is it necessary to be so mean-spirited when discussing issues of great importance to the survival of our society?

    We’ve already lost “The Great Society” to the Plutocrats. And it’s mostly religion that’s the opiate of the masses — but Oxycontin is in there too, and its abusers are of both political parties, I’d think.

  11. The funny part is I’ve never met a republican in my state who listened to or agreed with rush. The only people I know who listen to him are liberals mocking him and drunk people looking for a cheap laugh.
    Im honestly starting to believe the mocking liberal audience is laughing people dumb enough to still listen to him.
    How is he even still newsworthy?

  12. You may have misread that, Linda 1961. I think he got out of fighting in Viet Nam because he was (and is) an anal cyst.

  13. When I thought for a minute you were sentient you prove me wrong. No we don’t listen to the grand Pooh-Bah of your idiotic party we just ridicule you idiots who bend over and give him a reach around so he wont call out you sniveling idiots who don’t want to cross him. You made him with your rasict and sexist views now since he is a clown now you want to say we don’t listen to him.

  14. Detu…..is your statement tongue and cheek? Where I live, republicans have to get their ” rush fix” as they call it. Even traveling with these imbeciles they listen to him on their phones with ear buds. They actually think he delivers news when he’s a entertainer shock master preaching fear and hate! Then they wonder why they’re angry and unhappy all the time!

  15. So, you’re pulling ANOTHER “personal experience” from your well-worn ass, and claiming it reveals some deeper truth, other than your anecdotes are neither factual, nor provable? Give us another specious stripper analogy, that “proves” no republicans listen to Rush. Come on. you know you want to.

  16. “…but Oxycontin is in there too, and its abusers are of both political parties, I’d think.”

    What, no examples? Color me shocked. Another conservative that either can’t or won’t be taken seriously.

  17. OK, simple lesson here for everyone (even though just about everyone knows it by now): No means No. When she says ‘No’, you stop.

    It’s common sense. Even a brain dead Oxy munching monkey like Limbaugh ought to know that.

  18. One more step in the Rush to self-destruction, Limbaugh.

    Even now, party leaders are starting to turn their backs on his increasingly insane rants. Few are actually publicly disowning him, that would be admitting they were w-w-wrong.
    Many are now simply ignoring him and making no comments on anything he says.

    I wonder if Limpbrain is actually working from a script or is doing a stream of consciousness blather?

  19. Men like Rush – pedophile,suitcase of Viagra, Costa Rican child sex trade visitor, drug addicted, woman hater, 4 beards, liar, draft dodger, anal boils, fat slob. Complete tool, hes no man!

  20. Why is this fat slob of a fool still relevant. All of the sponsors of his show should stop their ads if the had any balls. That will be the only way his network will ever fire him. All they care about is ratings and advertizing revenue. Stop the revenue and he is gone.

  21. How on earth did this obese toad ever manage to get anyone to marry him with his Stone Age attitudes about women? In what passes for his mind, women who use birth control are asking for sex, and are also promiscuous if they even talk about its uses like Sandra Fluke. Now, he is trivializing a serious issue by advising other men to disregard a woman when she says no. Any woman who supports him needs her head examined.

  22. This is just too funny
    Clear Channel Changes its Name
    Clear Channel is now iHeartMedia. The multi-platform media company announced on Tuesday (Sept. 16) that it has changed names to reflect the growth and influence of the iHeart brands.
    The San Antonio-based company’s holdings of ad-supported and consumer-focused media business include 859 radio stations in over 150 markets; Premiere Networks, which syndicates 90 radio shows; the iHeartMedia Digital company; Total Traffic and Weather Network; 20,000 live music events, including the iHeartRadio Music Festival; plus, related companies like Katz Media Group and outdoor advertiser Clear Channel Outdoor.

    I guess being associated with Bain and the pill popping gasbag was bad for business so lets change our name.

  23. The Doctor asked the anal cyst what was wrong and the cyst said “Get this wart off my ass!” …. Ba Bump Bump.

  24. I actually listened to this, he wasn’t even talking about rape, let alone it being about rape. This completely took what he said out of context, if you would listen to the whole thing for yourself, you wouldn’t have to depend on these kinds of articles. Just because it’s online doesn’t mean its true, not meant as an attack, just letting you know that this didn’t even tell you the whole story. And by the way, he has said before that rape is not okay so he wasn’t supporting rape or what ever you said.

  25. and you guys call Rush the Hateful Misogynist… I see more hate being spread here then I see on Drama TV… And I can’t believe that you would actually listen to someone else telling you something. This the importance of knowing for yourself. I’m sure you don’t even know what your rights are or the basics of the Constitution. Its things like this that make America so uneducated, not people practicing there first amendment like Rush…

  26. Um I obviously have read just as much as you, if not more, because I’m on this crazy site wasting my brain cells and time…

  27. I know my rights dumbass and its people like you who listen to the drug addicted pedophile that tries to take them away

  28. You have no brain cells because you listen to a drug addicted pedophile who is also a fat ass. A patriot my ass. When it was his time to serve my country he claim to have a boil on his fat ass. I wonder how they ever found it

  29. So somehow your seeing something on TV means Rush really isnt that bad?

    You whine about Rush “practicing there first amendment” yet at the same time you would take away any ones “first amendment” rights who criticizes him. Please do not act like a trained monkey doing what Rush says.

    The 1st has nothing to do with anything here. what does count is the hate that comes from Rush, the hate you cant face

  30. Shiva, I simply said I see more hate here than on drama tv… that’s not taking anyone’s first amendment away… And honestly, have you even listened to this? How can you blindly read this without even knowing what Rush even said?

  31. On December 8, 2004, Limbaugh used similar gang-centric language to describe the NBA:
    You just gotta be who you are, and I think it’s time to get rid of this whole National Basketball Association. Call it the TBA, the Thug Basketball Association, and stop calling them teams. Call ’em gangs.

    On January 19, 2011, Limbaugh mocked the speech of Chinese president Hu Jintao:
    Hu Jintao was just going, “Ching cha. Ching chang cho chow. Cha Chow. Ching Cho. Chi ba ba ba. Kwo kwa kwa kee. Cha ga ga. Ching chee chay. Ching zha bo ba. Chang cha. Chang cho chi che. Cha dee. Ooooh chee bada ba. Jee jee cho ba.” Nobody was translating, but that’s the closest I can get.

    On September 25, 2009, Rush said of Native Americans:
    “Holocaust?” Ninety million Indians? Only four million left? They all have casinos — what’s to complain about?

    And you defend this? There is a lot more
    http://www.alternet.org/20-most-racist-things-rush-limbaugh-has-ever-said

  32. he may have said that (I highly doubt him say the ching chang chow because I’ve never heard him do that and I’ve listened to him for years)… And on the last one, haha the Indians now get MAJOR advantages in todays society and its almost wrong, gambling is illegal and in Cherokee they gamble ALL the time, which makes a lot of money in case you don’t know. He doesn’t think its right that people are holding something that happened hundreds of years ago over the children and people today. I’m Cherokee, I should know, and I’m not offended by that.

  33. Whatever. “If you’re not careful, the newspapers will have
    you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who
    are doing the oppressing.” ` Malcolm X
