No link to Kos but you can search out the link. This is just very, very strange.
I can hardly type, can hardly put this into words! I have been writing and rewriting this because if I don’t break down in tears, I get so angry that I can’t think straight! I know that so much has already been written about this whole issue, but I am writing this diary from a very personal point of view; forgive me if I find no humor in any of this, excuse me if I take no part in celebrating the loss of sponsorship for that pig’s radio program. You see, my 16 year old daughter came home from school on Friday in tears and has been in a state of utter despair since. She was told, in no uncertain terms, that she is a slut, a prostitute, a horny piece of trash that is out to sleep with every guy in school! The horrid little monsters who started harassing my daughter had the audacity to tell her their mothers were the ones who labeled her with these despicable opinions- they were just “telling it like it is, you know, like that guy on the radio! The one who isn’t afraid to tell the truth!” Who does this?! How does Rush Limbaugh or anyone else have the right to do this, to say these things about anyone?
I don’t even know what to say. I am virtually certain this is a work of fiction. I mean, this sort of thing doesn’t happen in the real world, right? Are there 16 year old kids who listen to or care what rush says? Are any of these nerds anywhere harassing girls for birth control use based on comments made by Rush Limbaugh regarding a third party? This is right out of some extra dimensional Twilight Zone fantasy. It is virtually certain that it is just bad fiction to exploit and garner sympathy for Limbaugh’s ham-handed comments, right? It is just so weird.
In the remote possibility it is true, the harassment level must be off the charts in that school. If something as obscure as a comment by Limbaugh results in harassment to the point of tears, what must be the effect of more traditional teenage angst? My God! What if she uses the wrong mascara, listens to the wrong band or – God forbid – is seen even for a minute with the wrong crowd? I mean, if political commentary from a conservative AM radio talking head results in her being harassed for birth control use of which no one should even be aware, what must be the effect of traditional sources of harassment?
But I am sure it is the former. Nothing described above actually happened in any real world. It is embarrassingly bad fiction created for political purposes.Share
