So society is better off if people keep on raping?

Holy fark he really said that.

And again with the "forcible" rape? WTF does that even mean? How can there be variations on rape?? I really don't understand this mindset, unless it's the whole "Well, she was asking for it by the way she was dressed that horrible tramp" theory.

Ethel Waters and James Robinson are the products of forcible rape, and they are excellent people.

First off, if their mothers got pregnant, then Todd Akin says they couldn't have been forcible raped. And I see nowhere in Huckabee's statement that denies this scientific fact.

Secondly, I'm doubtful as to the value of a televangalist who pioneered the mating of Christianity and politics. I'm certain that homosexuals who have been denied civil rights due in part to his actions, and Muslims who have had their religious freedom curtailed because membership in the republican party has grown to require denouncement and hatred of anything non-christian would certainly not think he is a great man.

Thirdly, what does a republican have to actually say to get his party to completely and utterly denouce him? A sane and moral man would have simply called Akin a farking moron, left it at that, and not bothered trying to find the silver lining in his statement. And no, this isn't a both sides are bad issue - it is a republican one. Watch this:

Anthony Weiner was an idiot to sext pictures of his junk - to anybody. For that matter, anyone who sexts is an idiot.
Ted Kennedy could have prevented the death of Mary Jo Kopechne.
Bill Clinton is a serial womanizer.

See, said all that with a straight face and without needing to add qualifiers. Now when is a republican going to stand up and say "Todd Akin is an idiot. I don't care about his stance on abortion - it doesn't matter because he proved his dumbassness before he even got that far. Calling the man a functional moron is a such an insult to morons that I have requested Secret Service protection."

And then there's

I don't want to any way defend these farkers, but I think they are "trying" to make the distinction from statutory rape.

Why is this so hard for these dumb-fark Republicans to understand? There's only one syllable in the word rape, and usually, it takes at least two to trip up these mouth-breathing retards. The concept of "forcible" rape exists only to demonstrate to the planet that you are a very stupid person who deserves to be mocked without mercy.

Let's make it easy for the Republican retards out there:

Did someone have sex with you against your will or consent?

If the answer is no, you've not been raped.

If the answer is yes, then congratulations! You've been raped.


Now, let's move on to the whole notion that someone can have an illegitimate baby from a "legitimate" rape.

That's giving them way too much credit. I thinkt hey're TRYING to make the distinction from date rape or "woman passed out and didn't give consent" rape which isn't REALLY rape just boys being boys.
 
2012-08-20 11:12:50 PM
Also I"m pretty sure that for every "extrordinary" person who was the product of rape, there have been some pretty farked up people. Being forced to raise a child that resulted in an extreme trauma can sow a lot of resentment and anger in a mother/child relationship.

I was listening to something on NPR (liberal pinko scum source, I know). It was something about Planned Parenthood and other pinko commie baby killers wanting to use statutory rape as a way to hand out many and plentiful abortions to young people who got pregnant under the technicality of statutory rape by using the "abortion should be legal in cases of (statutory) rape" argument. So the right tries to make the distinction so if they get all abortions outlawed except for rape that it won't include statutory rape but only "forceful" rape.

Yep. And seeing as how giving birth to a child fathered by a Roman in a Jewish community could get you stoned to death, it's probably in your best interests to say god did it and hope no one follows up on that accusation.

We've really not come all that far, have we?

Huckabee has quite an impressive track record. He pardoned a rapist- who went on to be a mass murderer, and was named the Worst Governor in America by that bastion of liberalism, the CATO institute. 

But I think it's a pretty low blow when Winky McRealAmerica says you've got poor judgement.

WorldCitizen: I don't want to any way defend these farkers, but I think they are "trying" to make the distinction from statutory rape.


statutory rape - not rape at all - just a dad's property being soiled
rape rape - clear cut assault - other than the rapist saying it wasnt him or she was asking for it, or she is lying now ...
date rape - dont get me started on the NIGHTMARE which is she said yes yes yes no yes yes yes yes yes yes yes and then I got arrested.

sucks, but in the end, date rape should always be reported and invested exactly the same as rape rape. the nightmare for the poor victim is that 99% of the time it is she said, he said and there is no way to prove otherwise. sigh (I know so many women who were date raped and there is nothing which they can do ... nothing ...)

we really need a 95% accurate lie detector. of course we would have to have them surgically attached to all public officials ....

Based on the idiocy being spread so far, I would not be at all surprised if one of these jackasses said something along the lines of thinking that it is impossible to rape one's wife, because since he's the husband and she's the wife, it is his right to have sex with her any time he damn well pleases.

No, such a statement coming from these idiots would not be a shock at all. :-/

I think it is worse than all of this. What I believe is they are asserting that if a woman enjoys it, it isn't forcible rape. If she enjoys it (even tolerates it), the body reacts differently and assists the pregnancy process, so to say.

If she is 'forcibly' raped, then the lady parts don't 'assist the process' and they are less likely to get pregnant.

Karac: Thirdly, what does a republican have to actually say to get his party to completely and utterly denouce him?


What's worse is Republican voters are still sticking with the guy:
Missouri voters strongly disagree with the comments Todd Akin made about abortion over the weekend, but it hasn't moved the numbers a whole lot in the Senate race. Akin leads Claire McCaskill by a single point, 44-43. That's basically identical to our last poll of the contest in late May, which found Akin ahead by a 45-44 spread.

It's not that Missouri voters are ok with or supportive of Akin's comments. 75% of voters, including even 64% of Republicans, say they were inappropriate to only 9% who consider them to have been appropriate. 79% of voters say they disagree with what Akin said, including 65% who express 'strong' disagreement with him. 51% of GOP voters say they strongly disagree with him.

All of that is taking a toll on Akin's image. Only 24% of voters have a favorable opinion of him to 58% with a negative one. He's pretty universally disliked by Democrats (3/85) and independents (21/61) and even with Republicans (43/34) he's on only narrowly positive ground.

But for all of that the overall numbers in the race have moved very little.
Republican voters have been conditioned to be extraordinarily loyal to whatever lowlife is running under the party label. So, you can safely ignore any list of reasons a Republican gives you for why he's voting for Herp McDerp. There's only real reason: Herp McDerp is a Republican.

"In fact, it is consensual sex that produced such monsters as Hitler, Stalin, and Jimmy Carter. Unless of course they were one of those few cases of legitimate rape where the woman's body didn't function correctly. However, the odds are slim. So let me ask you, would you rather take your chances with consensual sex, which has such a sordid track record, or forcible rape that produced these two fine Americans?"
