Thank goodness for the Rush Limbaugh Show. Without it, we might forget that there are still real, honest-to-goodness idiots out there who believe the world is crumbling because women are given reproductive rights and gays are allowed to marry. Sometimes, it’s easy to imagine nobody thinks those sorts of things because — well, because they’re absolutely ridiculous. Now, Limbaugh has hypocritically opted to go after lesbians.
Limbaugh, while discussing funds being given to researchers looking at the link between lesbians and weight and substance abuse issues, said:
The answers to the first case is they don’t have to deal with men, so they don’t have to worry about their appearance. They’re not trying to please men. So they can be obese. It’s no big deal. Alcohol, who knows? They’re having to deal with women so they’re drunk.
This line of thinking obviously makes sense because all straight women are in extremely good shape and there aren’t any heterosexual alcoholics.
As Jezebel points out, Limbaugh is both overweight and has a history of drug abuse. Not that anybody has to right to make assumptions regarding other people’s bodies, addiction issues or personal lives, but Rush — avoid throwing stones in glass houses, buddy. You just look like an idiot. I mean, more so than usual.
