And WTF does he define as "legitimate rape"?
 
2012-08-19 02:33:22 PM
Holy fark he actually said that.

"First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare," Akin told KTVI-TV in an interview posted Sunday. "If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."

What one of those doctors may look like:

Something besides "changed my mind about it later" rape ?

Those extremely rare cases in which a woman isn't lying about being raped or didn't deserve it for dressing like a slut.

Oh, but there's no "war on women" coming from the GOP today. No, sirree. Not here.

Didn't you guys know that women have mysterious biological defenses that determine when they do and don't get pregnant? that's why condoms are pointless and non-legitimate rape isn't really so bad. Women have miraculous control over what their bodies do... that's why abortion should be illegal....Just ask Henry VIII.

Bathia_Mapes: And WTF does he define as "legitimate rape"?


I'd imagine, rape perpetrated by a brown or black person on a virtuous white woman*. Because women are notorious for saying "No" when they mean "Yes", but we all know no normal white woman would ever consent to sex with one of "those".

*"Virtuous" being defined by the Congressman, based on adherence to his form of morality and adherence to his church's form of Christianity
 
2012-08-19 02:46:51 PM
Good to offset the idiots who think a woman can't rape a man because he wouldn't get an erection, I guess.

Why do republicans have such difficulty understanding the biology of women? They show their fundamental lack of understanding every time they open their mouths on the subject; which, unfortunately, they do a lot. They are also terrified of it, which is why the constantly try to legislate every aspect of it.

Is it because they are all gay?

No see, we bothered to learn about women because we view them as friends and equals. Don't pin this shiat on us :)

So, in Missouri, they don't pretend anymore. Just double down on exactly what you believe, regardless of how insane it is. They will vote for you anyway.

It's not the message, it's the messenger?

why do people still vote for the GOP? this is what they actually believe, this is their own gotdamn words. how can anyone possibly think these people are in any way good leaders?
 
2012-08-19 02:59:04 PM
Akin said that even in the worst-case scenario - when the supposed natural protections against unwanted pregnancy fail - abortion should still not be a legal option for the rape victim.

We get it, you think women are societal broodmares, first and foremost.

Also, you are really grasping at straws here.

And you're thicker than the proverbial brick.

Obvious aside, that's the first time I've ever seen a pic of Tod Akin.

I really hope I never see another one.

Seriously, I think David Icke is legally insane but that guy definitely looks like some kind of lizard person. 

*Brrrr*

Benevolent Misanthrope: I'd imagine, rape perpetrated by a brown or black person on a virtuous white woman*.


A white woman cannot get pregnant when raped by a black man because they are not the same species. QED.
 
2012-08-19 02:59:23 PM
There was a little quiz at the front of the human sexuality textbook I used, and one T/F question was "Women can only get pregnant if they have an orgasm." Men were 90% correct on this one; women were only 70% correct on this one (!)

Anyway, the ignorance out there is massive.

I wonder what the quiz results would be in Missouri, these days. Do they even teach science there?

We'll need a full sample size. Both.

I can see it now, him and McCaskill at a debate. McCaskill asks him if he still believes this nonsense.

If he says yes, he outs himself as a complete and utter farking moron on live tv.
If he says no, Claire motions to a young lady she found and sat in the front row and says "Representative Akin, would you like to repeat to this young pregnant lady that she couldn't have really been raped?"

You need a disclaimer when you post things like this in the politics thread: Warning, this may be what people actually believe.

Oh so now rape has to be legitimized to be rape? It's not enough that I simply forcibly put my dick somewhere that it's not wanted, now we have Big Government telling me my rape isn't legitimate. What is it with this Republican war on rape?

Next I'm gonna have to register my tentacle monsters.

Learning about women's bodies involves biology and science, which are anathema to everything the GOP stands for today. Reading, learning, educating themselves about things....why would any Republican want to do that, when they just crack open a can of Bud, turn on NASCAR, and scratch their yambags?

I think that has something to do with the GOP's recent attempts to redefine rape vis a vis the whole "forcible" thing.

Unless the GOP are proposing some kind of licensing bureau for rapists or something.

/At this point there's really little left they could do to still surprise or shock me.

Back in the 90s one of the Republican Reps. from outside philadelphia said the same thing. Women can prevent conception by secreting a chemical in their brain if it was real rape. I can't remember the guy's name but it looks like someone is still passing around the same insane story.

It's like no one ever passes an anatomy class.
 
2012-08-19 03:15:55 PM
I would be shocked to learn that an inbred, meth-addled, grade-school dropout, trailer-park denizen thought this way.

And this guy is poised to be a US Senator.

skinnycatullus: Holy fark he actually said that.


I really thought subby was just trolling until I watched the vid. Do these people HEAR THE WORDS that are coming out of their mouths? Did this guy read an article about duck rape and think it somehow applies to human women? (Probably NSFW.)

VIDEOWALLART: Makes me ashamed of being a Republican. (ok fiscal republican, social democrat)


There is no such thing as a fiscal republican. You could maybe - possibly - pass yourself off as a fiscal conservative without it being an oxymoron, but fiscal republicans have been extinct since 1980.

See, abortion is wrong but it's unpleasant to think about forcing a women to bear her rapist's child. Therefore, if she got pregnant from rape she must have liked it a little bit, the slut.
Don't we all feel better now?
 
2012-08-19 03:19:47 PM

Go ahead. I'm sure they'll use the defense Christians always do - "Not ALL of us are like that!"

Then you can ask them, as I ask Christians, "Then how come you guys don't do something about the ones that are?" and see what kind of "big tent" justification response you get.
