Rush Limbaugh Asks Offensive Question About Michael Sam and the NFL Showers: AUDIO

RushlimbaughIn an all-too-expected reaction, Rush Limbaugh took to the airwaves on Wednesday to stake his right wing claim on the topic of out football player Michael Sam.

Media Matters reported on the statement:

LIMBAUGH: By the way, I probably shouldn't ask this, but if it's OK for a man who has sex with other men to be in a shower in an NFL locker room with other men, is it OK for a guy to be in a shower with women?

Listen to the absurdity, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Why is it always trolls like Limbaugh obsessed about being in a locker room or shower with a gay guy? It never seems to be the hotties I might be tempted to sneak a peek at. No, it's some hideous creature that I'd pay money NOT to have to see naked (or clothed for that matter). Seriously, has anyone else ever noticed that it's the ones like Limbaugh who think we're all out to seduce them? As if.

  2. It's fairly obvious Limbaugh has never set foot inside a gym.

    If he would drag his fat ass into one...he would know that straight men shower with gay men...every damn day. And have been since the invention of locker-rooms and communal showers.

    Grow-up Limbaugh...or at least join the 21 Century.

  3. Well, why not all shower together? They did it in Starship Troopers. That was a famous shower scene.

  4. A caller posed the same question to Michelangelo Signorile on his show. Must have been a ditto-head. I don't understand the scenario that would have a man and a woman in the same shower. How would that ever even occur?

    If there is such concern about mighty, macho football players having such delicate sensibilities in the shower, why not build them individual showers instead of group showers? The NFL could certainly afford it.

  5. Because, deep down inside that hydrocodone-riddled interior, underneath all that lard, is a desire to have an orgy in a shower with NFL players.

    It's Rush's secret, and he hates himself for it. He wouldn't be able to control himself, so how can others?

  6. In the words of the immortal Buddy Cole, "Why is it always the fat, ugly ones who think that all fags want them?"

  7. @Houndentenor, exactly!! I think they are just pissy that nobody looks at them, men nor women.

  8. It never fails; Limbaugh has to daily announce his idiocy for the whole world to see...

  9. Q: "Is it OK for a guy to be in a shower with women?"
    A: "It should be! But there's still a few bad apples out there that ruin it for everyone else."

  10. Well, since sexual relations and showering aren't the same thing, it's not different than sitting next to a woman on the bus.

  11. What are the reasons that couldn't men showers in the same bathroom as women ?

  12. Are guys who think like this so dumb not to realize that closeted gay men are already in the shower with them? Ostrich syndrome.

  13. @ Andy : all cultures have their taboos and that is one of ours. In other cultures, people don't think bathing or nudity is sexually provocative.

    Maybe at some point, we'll pick another taboo.

  14. Is it OK for delusional people to have their own shows?

  15. The only really terrifying thing here is the imagery that is conjured up when Rush Limbaugh uses words like Gay, Sex, Naked, Showers... I feel nauseous just hearing him say these words! "My eyes! My eyes! Oh, my eyes!"

  16. P-R-I-C-K-!

  17. Of course it's ok to shower with anyone... but if i was in a shower with Rush Limbaugh, i'd claw my eyes out!!!!

    Posted by: matt | Feb 13, 2014 1:43:53 PM

  18. Actually, that would be okay, except that we KNOW that straight men can't be trusted.

  19. I guess using a public men's restroom where any kind of guy stands next to you while you handle your junk and he handles his junk just isn't the same thing because, of course, you are both looking straight ahead at the wall, pretending not to look and pretending it isn't happening.

  20. The communal bathroom that was shared by all the guys on the same floor of my freshman dorm, in college, was supposed to be men only. I never once walked in there, completely naked except for the towel around my waist, to shower without finding some girl in there, showering or primping in front of the mirrors.

    We all survived. Because 18-year-olds are more mature than gray-faced, fat-assed Republican blowhards.

  21. Let's just remember Limbaugh and Lindsay Lohan have a lot in common: both entertainers of dubious quality and both drug addicts.

  22. For those here who say that gay men have showered with straight men for thousands of years, while this is obviously true, the HUGE difference is now we have a gay man who has announced that he is gay. What difference does that make? I huge difference for those who now feel uncomfortable being naked before someone who likes seeing fit guys naked.

    Limbaugh's issue is with HIM being naked in the shower with them...if anyone actually took the time to listen to what he said, he wasn't saying that at all. His concern was with those NFL football players, some of whom would feel very exposed and uncomfortable and even violated by being looked at naked.

    There is a big difference between being naked and being clothed. People don't walk around naked, not only because it can be chilly, but also because they don't want people looking at them in a sexual manner in such an exposed and vulnerable state.

    And so the comparison between guys and girls showering together, and openly-gay men and straight men showering together, is actually a very fair comparison. Because, psychologically and emotionally, people on the receiving end of being "desired" can have the same response. It is not fair nor right to toss that legitimate concern aside.

  23. Jon, when was the last time you left your house?

    Posted by: FFS | Feb 13, 2014 2:04:51 PM

  24. It's understandable that not every idiot on the radio would understand the difference between sex and work. THEY shouldn't be let near a shower full of women since they can't tell the difference and are confused by others being able to control themselves.

    The scenario doesn't equate to a gay player not being able to be a professional and conduct himself with professionalism in the locker room. We're already EVERYWHERE by the way, as much as some would like to think we aren't, EVERYWHERE!!

  25. If it's that big of a deal then why doesn't he just wear a chastity belt? Are they not available in his size (circumference, not in front)?
