As you may have heard, Lena Dunham recently endorsed Obama while acknowledging sex as a thing people do. Conservatives immediately criticized the ad, but none quite so entertainingly as good ol' Rush…
"[The ad is] insulting to women. It again looks at women as monolithic sex machines who want to make sure they've got unending birth control pills and then a free trip to Planned Parenthood the next day, all paid for by Obama."
Uh huh. Now, you might say a man like Limbaugh — who believes women's sexual activity is directly correlated to the amount of birth control they take – has no business criticizing others for misrepresenting women's sexuality. You might even say a man like that is himself guilty of portraying women he disagrees with as "monolithic sex machines" (or "sluts") while willfully ignoring any legitimate points they have.
