Sandra Fluke, an abortion activist masquerading as a law student, spoke before the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee on a very important issue: the right for college students to have endless amounts of sex while someone else pays for their birth control. According to Fluke, female students shell out $3,000 for three years of contraceptives.

Of course, do the math and find that this means Fluke and her fellow law students have sex two or three times daily (since condoms only cost about a dollar). Rush Limbaugh noticed this, and made the apparently grave error of pointing out the obvious, calling Sandra Fluke a slut and a prostitute on air.

The swift, immediate fallout: Scores of Limbaugh’s sponsors dropped him. Rush himself apologized not only once, but twice. Fluke, being the gracious, classy lady that she is, went on The View and refused to accept his apology. President Obama himself even called the poor, maligned, sex-crazed activist to make sure she was doing OK, and to tell her that — shockingly — her parents should be proud.

Yes, I too hope and dream for the day that my child will stand up in front of the nation to announce they’re having so much sex that they can’t afford to pay for it.

But is “slut-shaming,” Limbaugh’s infraction, really such a horrible crime?
