In the Rush Limbaugh-Sandra Fluke Controversy, America Mirrored Some Socially-Oppressed Countries

When an American woman gets called a "slut" for expressing her opinion, then in some ways America's freedom isn't really that different from some third world countries'. The Georgetown law school student Sandra Fluke was called a "slut" by talk radio host Rush Limbaugh after she testified at a special Democratic congressional hearing on contraceptives' coverage, held because conservatives wouldn’t allow Fluke to testify in the wider congressional hearing on the issue.
