“But there’s a way around this, guys. You gotta have fun with this, as you know. So let me offer suggestions. The first suggestion, the first way to deal with this that came into my mind, is you find yourself staring, looking at, casually glancing at a woman, but you know that it’s now socially taboo. You shouldn’t be doing it, and you think everybody is noticing you doing it and condemning you in their minds. You shouldn’t be doing it. So you walk up to the woman and say, “Would you please ask your breasts to stop staring at my eyes?”” -Rush Limbaugh
"Limbaugh suggested that sexual harassment was just part of human nature, saying that the "liberals" behind the study [on the male gaze and objectification] "just despise human nature and try to alter it and change it and create it, because many of them just don’t fit in with it in many ways.”“

Limbaugh on cats and women:
"My cat comes to me when she wants to be fed….She’s smart enough to know she can’t feed herself. She’s actually a very smart cat. She gets loved. She gets adoration. She gets petted. She gets fed. And she doesn’t have to do anything for it, which is why I say this cat’s taught me more about women than anything my whole life."
