John Fugelsang: We’re in the golden age of slut-shaming

John Fugelsang took over hosting the political talk show Viewpoint on Currrent TV from Eliot Spitzer from January 6, 2013 until the end of its run on August 15, 2013. The following video is apparently from the August 1, 2013 edition of Viewpoint.

"We are now though, my friends, in the golden age of slut-shaming—a time when the culture, the media and the men demand women sexualize themselves to prove their value to society, but then punish those women if they dare to actually enjoy it."

"It’s used to smear rape victims, women who want birth control, women who like sex as much as men or just women who choose to have agency over their own intimate lives. Retrograde hypocrisy, usually perpetuated by males who crave female sexuality, as long as they can control it."

Wikipedia: Slut-shaming
Slut shaming (also hyphenated, as slut-shaming) is a concept in philosophy on sexuality. It is a neologism used to describe the act of making any person feel guilty or inferior for certain sexual behaviors or desires that deviate from traditional or orthodox gender expectations, or that which may be considered to be contrary to natural or religious law. Some examples of behaviors over which women are said to be "slut-shamed" include: violating accepted dress codes by dressing in sexually provocative ways, requesting access to birth control, having premarital or casual sex, or being raped or sexually assaulted.

my blog: Rush Limbaugh: That's spelled with one F and one U – Mar 14/2012
Recently, the world has been atwitter on Twitter and other social media commenting left, right and centre about one Rush Hudson Limbaugh. Of course, it is easy to pile on by calling him an anal orifice or a Neanderthal or a meany… (I consult my notes) oops, that's a f**kin' meany… however I can't help feeling there is more, much more not just to this particular story, but to what the story represents. This is the tip of the iceberg.
