Dangerous Lee Rocks The Slut Vote!


RTSV Spokeswoman – Kimberley A. Johnson

Tell us the premise behind the Rock The Slut Vote Campaign:      

Susan McMillan Emry, founder of RTSV United, decided to start Rock The Slut Vote in March 2012 for these five reasons:          

  1. The Susan B. Komen Foundation defunding Planned Parenthood. 
  2. More than 1,000 pieces of anti-women legislation since March 2011. 
  3. Rush Limbaugh and his attack on college student Sandra Fluke who appeared before congress to argue that birth control should be covered by insurance companies. He called her a slut and a prostitute and insisted she said that she had so much sex, she couldn’t afford birth control any longer.  He also added that if birth control was covered, he should be able to watch a tape of her having sex, since his tax dollars went to coverage. 
  4. Voter suppression bills plaguing this election season.      
  5. Finally, Susan had enough and felt literally compelled to find her voice against this Republican war on women.      

In April, she was introduced to my Open Letter To Rush Limbaugh From A Liberal Slut, did some research on me and asked if I would be the Spokeswoman for RTSV. I immediately said yes.

On April 28, we attended the march against The War On Women in Sacramento, organized by UniteWomen.org. I gave a speech.

Our mission is to fight the GOP effort to bully, subjugate and silence women. We will wrest the power from the word slut and help women get informed, get involved, get registered and vote.      

We use humor as well as making sure people understand the truth about what is happening to women’s rights in this country. We have created a check list.

What do you really think about Rush Limbaugh:      

Ha, ha! That is a loaded question! It’s no secret that Limbaugh is misogynist who fears intelligent, independent women. We would like to see all of his advertisers pull out so that he no longer has the platform to continue his deceitful hate speech.

I am an Optimistic Sweet-Spot Slut (based on your checklist)! Have you received any negative feedback from women regarding the term slut?      

We have indeed had our fair share of negative feedback. The majority comes from the Republican side.  We do understand that conservative women have different ideological ideas about how this country should operate and what role the government plays but we simply do not understand how they blatantly and purposefully want to and will vote against their own best interests. Equal pay for women doesn’t strike us as only a “liberal” position. It would make sense that any woman, no matter her party would feel she is entitled to the same wages men make for the same job.      

The word ‘slut” has definitely sparked controversy. The simple explanation: If Sandra Fluke is a slut, then so are we. We refuse to allow that word to take anything away from our power and our rights as US citizens. Of course when we call ourselves sluts, we say it with a smile.   A more complete explanation can be viewed on this very interesting and eloquent blog by Susan.

We understood that from the beginning there would be a negative backlash but the message is more important than someone calling us names. It’s very sad that this country is so divided and it’s our hope that after the election, we can get back to the business of living our lives with all of our rights intact and a administration that will keep it that way. An OBAMA administration!          

Are men getting involved?    

We do have very supportive male followers on all of our sites; Facebook, Twitter and many have signed up on our site and are represented by an icon on the US map.
