It’s Time to #StopRush

#stoprush

He’s at it again. Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh dismissed a new study on street harassment by stating, “[Liberals] just despise basic human nature.” He then suggested that men should “walk up to the woman and say, ‘Will you please ask your breasts to stop staring at my eyes?’”

Human nature? If Rush is selling the idea that objectification and harassment are behavioral benchmarks of our species, I’m not buying it. And neither should you.

The fat of the matter is that street harassment is the most common form of gender-based violence globally, with long-term impacts ranging from depression to anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. It is not human nature, it is a form of disrespect at its best, and violence at its worst.

TAKE ACTION:

1. Sign Hollaback!’s petition demanding a public apology

2. Tweet at Rush (@rushlimbaugh) to let him know this is completely unacceptable

3. And don’t forget to use the hashtag #stoprush!
