One of the highlights for me during my vacation to Buenos Aires was visiting the Eva Peron Museum and seeing her grave. Many of you may know her from Evita, aka Madonna’s character in the Broadway musical. I had forgotten that she died at the very young age of 33 to cervical cancer. My tour guide on my first day made a comment about her cancer perhaps being a result of her “slutty” past.
However, I find it funny that the only reason she was considered slutty was because she was an actress and pursued a career in the arts beginning at the age of 15. Her husband on the other hand was well-known to have a strong liking for very young women. Perhaps Evita did sleep around, but there isn’t as much concrete evidence as there is for her spouse. Most likely, he passed on HPV to her. Not the other way around as the world perceived it to be.
This has nothing to do with the Sarah “FIT” blog except that fitness does slow down the growth of cancer cells and has been long shown to help prevent cancer. I’m writing about this because it reminds me of the current issue we have been hearing about on the news for over two weeks; Rush Limbaugh calling Sandra Fluke a slut. I saw a “Some E-Card” today that read “I see, so if I don’t have sex with you I’m a prude bitch, if I use the pill I’m a slut, if I get pregnant I’m an idiot, and if I choose abortion I’m Satan. Yay.”
I’m only writing about this because I’m frustrated by politics. I thought there was supposed to be a separation of church and state. I try to keep politics off my blog, but I’m very obviously a woman. I’m very socially liberal but I know my liberties are not going to be taken away no matter who is in congress. Roe v Wade WILL NEVER be overturned. Trust me. It just wont. Did you see what happened to Komen recently?
What I don’t get is why the Republicans are trying to alienate their female voters? Don’t you want to get elected? It doesn’t make any sense to me. What is most frustrating is that my ideals don’t line up with ANY party what so ever. Truth be told, I had no idea what the difference between parties were besides social issues until after high school, I thought that if you were pro-choice you were a democrat and that’s it. Now that I do, I just don’t agree with either party wholeheartedly and I know I’m not alone. It’s frustrating to live in such a black and white nation but I’m thankful that we have the liberties that we do. Stepping off my soap box. I won’t talk politics again.
I just found it funny that it seems like Rush Limbaugh lives in the 40′s.
