RUSH LIMBAUGH CALLS SEXUAL HARASSMENT “HUMAN NATURE” AND TELLS WOMEN “WILL YOU PLEASE TELL YOUR BREASTS TO STOP STARING AT MY EYES?”
Hollaback! launches a petition to demand an apology for Rush’s latest attack on women.
[BROOKLYN, NY] On his show yesterday Rush Limbaugh dismissed a new study on street harassment and objectification 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?'” Hollaback! has launched a petition on change.org to demand a public apology.
Street harassment is the most common form of gender-based violence globally. Long-term impacts include depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder. At ihollaback.org, victims report missing school, changing jobs or moving homes to avoid exposure.
“Street harassment isn’t ‘human nature,’ it’s a form of violence. Rush’s grim view of “human nature” ignores the many good men who are out there — supporting women, respecting women, and working alongside women to build a world where everyone has the right to feel safe and confident,” said Executive Director Emily May. Hollaback! was co-founded by three men and four women in 2005, and men remain an active part of the movement.
