Radio host Rush Limbaugh, who once called law student Sandra Fluke a “slut” for speaking out in support of birth-control access, is now defending the Harvard men’s soccer team, Media Matters reported.
Last week, Harvard administrators canceled the rest of the team’s season after discovering players had kept an online scouting report that rated Harvard women players’ looks and assigned them a sexual position. The practice had been going on for years, the school determined.
Limbaugh chalked it up to boys-will-be-boys “human nature.”
“They cancelled the remainder of the male soccer season as a way of penalizing the men on the Harvard soccer team for daring to objectify women like this. ‘Who rates women on a scale of one to 10?’ they said. Hah, try everybody!”
“This kind of thing happens and largely it’s human nature,” he continued.
Limbaugh criticized reporters for supporting the administration’s actions, saying, “It’s a different era. We have to accept it.”
