I think Mary's right and YOU'RE wrong.

When a person is under attack your entire hormonal balance is completely changed, starting with the adrenal glands that regulate fight or flight. It is not far fetched that the odds of getting pregnant diminish when you're under duress. Akin said it was RARE, which I agree with.

Now, I've seen you fervently, frothingly, posting on all these threads about Akin needing to go. He probably does at this point since there is no funding left but I believe everything needs to take a deep breath and evaluate what he actually said. He said it very poorly but he's not necessarily wrong.

Citrate1007: "I said one word in one sentence on one day, and everything changed,"

You are running on a platform to shame women in lieu of stoping abortions and you DONT KNOW JACK FARK ABOUT WOMEN'S ANATOMY.


You said many words, all of which were offensive individually, and which taken together came out as "Legitimate rape does not result in pregnancy" you douchebag.

And if everything changed because of that, well, it's probably for the better that your constituents know you don't believe in rape.

"Let's give a welcome to Macaca, here. Welcome to America and the real world of Virginia,"

.........

[Allen campaign manager Dick] Wadhams said Allen campaign staffers had begun calling Sidarth "mohawk" because of a haircut Wadhams said the Webb staffer has. "Macaca was just a variation of that," Wadhams said.

"I would never want to demean him as an individual. I do apologize if he's offended by that. That was no way the point."

Asked what macaca means, Allen said: "I don't know what it means." He said the word sounds similar to "mohawk," a term that his campaign staff had nicknamed Sidarth because of his haircut. Sidarth said his hairstyle is a mullet -- tight on top, long in the back.

Allen said that by the comment welcoming him to America, he meant: "Just to the real world. Get outside the Beltway and get to the real world."

..........

Not only is macaque apparently a French slur used to describe North Africans, Allen would have good reason to know it is. His mother is French Tunisian, and Allen speaks French.



I hope Akin keeps digging. VA was a "safe and easy-win seat" for George Allen like MO is for Akin. "Macaca" cost the GOP a Senate majority that year. Akin seems poised to do the same.

I'm almost wondering if, and we still have a few hours to go, he's staying in to spite the party for not doing a better job of 'having his back.'?

I think he's probably pretty shellshocked that he towed the party line, and now he's a pariah. I don't think he fully gets that he's damaged goods, and has too many ties to the VEEP choice that he's got to be the sacrificial lamb because they are working overtime to polish up Ryan. Can't double their work having this whole 'Rapey' talk come around and get mentioned with Ryan all the time.

The sooner Akin steps down from this race, all the better: He's already a lock for retaining his Congressional seat, so it's not like they are losing any numbers there.

But I wonder if Akin isn't just standing his ground to piss off the party leaders?

Fark_Guy_Rob: He believes (and so do a lot of people) that unborn babies are people. That makes abortion the same as murder.


That also makes mothers who smoke and cause miscarriages as murders. So, how many years should they get for that crime? You really want to open the can of worms that is fetus and actual legal person? When do you claim the fetus is a legal person? 1 day? 4 weeks? 3 months? Do you issue it a pre-birth certificate? Can all pregnant women file their unborns on their tax returns? What happens when they miscarry during that time, should we take away the tax exemption or keep it?

If a fetus is an actual person, then that person has rights. One of those rights therefore must be to have adequate care taken of it while it is in utero. A person who cannot care for himself/herself has an expectation that care be provided to them (i.e., inmates, state hospital patients, etc.). So an unborn person has an absolute right that its carrier (mom) have the best treatment available to provide that care, such as prenatal care.

Therefore, any politician who votes to cut aid to expectant mothers is denying those unborn persons A RIGHT, and they should be legally and criminally liable if the unborn person suffers any detriment because its carrier (mom) could not adequately care for her unborn person before it was born. Now some may say the mother is responsible for her unborn person; but if the mother cannot provide the care needed, and her unborn person sues her for neglect, the mother should then be able to sue the government on behalf of her unborn person for the care it is entitled to.

Right?

Either it's the mom's baby or it's a person on its own, and thus has an unborn right to the same entitlements as anyone else.

Fark_Guy_Rob: If you read his quote - he doesn't say 'pregnancy from rape is impossible'. He says, 'from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare'. And he's mostly right.
1% of all abortions occur because of rape or incest


That seems pretty rare to me

2012-08-21 03:32:30 PM

Deucednuisance: consciousNOT: I said I disagree with the statement. It's generalized, ridiculous and base.

I would like to introduce you to my in-laws. They are right-wing Southern Baptists, currently residing in Texas. At the time of this CSB, they lived in Richmond. A family member, having a bit of a wild streak in her, was known to go out at night and drink, dance and carry on. One night, she was followed out of a bar by a man with a knife who forced her to the side of a dark road, raped her, and slit her throat, ear-to-ear. However, this stain on humanity wasn't terribly competent, and while he cut her bad, he didn't manage to kill her.

Most of the family didn't visit her in the hospital because of the shame she brought on them.

And when it turned out she had been impregnated, her family prevailed on her not to abort. (Because Jeebus.) She had no real prospects and put the child up for adoption, at which point Mrs. Nuisance's grandmother took her in. (And so, my wife's second-cousin is also her aunt, but that's not the point.) This girl is now grown, married with a child of her own. No-one ever told her who her mother was, or why her ostensible "cousin" would always show up important life events. She's never been quite right, if you ask me.

To this day, some 30 years later, it's still her mother's fault. She led the fellow on, so it wasn't really rape. Her own god-fearing blood kin have treated her as less than human for decades because of it.

Don't tell me it doesn't happen. It does, and it's appallingly common.

Cool Catastrophic Story, Bro...

Open your eyes.


That is a terrible thing to have happen and your relative was treated very badly.

Now, I never told you "it doesn't happen." I'm not really sure what you are talking about.

I disagreed with the following statement--"But the right wing likes to pretend women who say they are raped are making it up."

Ironically, I'm pro-abortion.

I think it's many, many, many times better to abort a child than to be a crappy parent. I'd rather someone get an abortion than smoke while pregnant. I, personally, don't have an opinion on what constitutes life. It's a big can of worms and until we fix bigger, more important stuff, I just don't care. Issue birth certificates at birth. Also, I don't think anyone should get a tax deduction for having children.

But those are just my personal feelings. I was simply saying that 'some people' feel abortion is murder. Those people would have very different answers.

Fark_Guy_Rob: One study* has suggested that trauma from the rape may bring into play some natural defence mechanisms that reduce the likelihood of pregnancy, such as hormonal change and spasms of the fallopian tubes which inhibit ovulation or fertilisation
http://www.prolifeinfo.ie/women/sexual-assault/pregnancy-as-a-result- o f-rape/

Again - I'm actually Pro-Choice. I don't agree with this guy's stance on abortion. But I really, really don't see why everyone wants to get pissed off at this guy.


Because once the outrage cascade starts it's impossible to stop until someone says something dumb enough to distract from it. It's almost enthralling to get wrapped up in the latest wave of mockery targeted at whoever has been painted this weeks "fair game" target. See: Paul Christoforo, that lawyer who picked a fight with the Oatmeal, etc.

In this case however, it has legitimate media coverage, it specifically hits large and outspoken groups, AND it's political flamebait that punches at hot button issues while glossing over horrible crimes. IN AN ELECTION YEAR. It's like the perfect storm of outrage.

Don't get me wrong, the guy is a total asshat, but there's all sorts of morons running around politics saying moronic stuff all the time; this guy managed just pull off an amazingly terse alpha strike of ragebait all while having a face that screams for captions. If he was a troll, he'd be getting a 99999/10... but I'm pretty sure there's no brains behind it.

What a very different world from Nixon versus Kennedy 1960, or even Gore versus Bush 2000 (or, debateably, Kerry versus Bush 2004, though I believe he should have put up more of a token effort than what he did before conceding). Nixon and Gore (and Kerry) stepped aside for the good of the party and the process.

Akin is not. Maybe y'all are right. Maybe Akin does feel peeved his party isn't backing him, and is staying in to spite everyone. What does that say about Akin's ability to 'take one for the team', though? He's not in it for the constituents (obviously, who is at that level?), and he's not doing it out of party loyalty or party platform.

He's doing it for the perks, the notoriety, and simple orneriness? Personal reasons, not group reasons.

I have to think on this some more. The only reason why he was up so much before, was because Missourans are sick of McCaskill. Are they less sick of her this week after Akin's comment, or has McCaskill made herself the greater of two evils before Akin opened his mouth?

What more proof to you need that the GOP doesn't disagree with the policy whatsoever?
How many excuses are you going to make for them?

You've got the platform in plain black and white.
You've got *decades* of history of the party saying the same damn thing.
You've got fairly recent statements and pledges of the same damn thing by Akin, Ryan, Romney, et al.
Sure, Ryan and Romney recently and loudly claim to have changed their tune, but the party platform goes forward un-amended.

And you're running for cover behind *Whoopie Goldberg* and some trivially false flight of fancy about Democratic contributions?
That is some seriously weak sauce. I hope you're not getting paid to spin this shiat.

Republicans are worried that any underage girl would qualify for the Rape exemption, because they are below the age of consent, so they are trying to take statutory rape out of the equation. That way if a 13 year old girl was fooling around and got pregnant she couldn't use the law to get an abortion.
 
2012-08-21 03:44:03 PM
There's way too much hysteria and noise over what he said when it's pretty farking clear what he meant. He meant actual rape as opposed to 'omg why did I sleep with him? if anybody sees me leaving his apartment/car... oh... I KNOW HOW TO FIX THIS!' or 'i let him have sex with me without a condom? wtf was i thinking? oh, i know how to fix this if i get pregnant. i sure do!'

You might be the little sweetie that would NEVER do that to anyone, but there are plenty of women that would, do and ENJOY doing it because they're sticking it to patriarchal society and/or don't have to take responsibility for their own actions, the latter not being a female-only thing by any stretch of the imagination, but let's call it what it is, okay?

As someone noted earlier in the thread, the problem people should be having is that he's against abortion in general and he's just trying to weasel it into his campaign to make it sound good to both the rednecks and the moderates. People, of course, overreacted based on the media telling them what it should've meant and them somehow believing there's no way a woman would ever claim being raped even when the sex was consensual. Women are innocent, childlike creatures, after all, who don't fully comprehend or understand their own actions.

DEAR FEMINISTS, YOU ARE SETTING YOUR OWN MOVEMENT 100 YEARS BACK BY DOING THAT shiat, BY THE WAY. IF YOU WANT TO BE TREATED LIKE CHILDREN, THEN YOU WILL HAVE TO DEAL WITH LOSING THE PRIVILEGES THAT COME WITH BEING AN ADULT.

Because there is a vast, vast gulf between saying that the odds of conception are slightly reduced due to the stresses of a rape, and saying that conception from rape is so rare that rape shouldn't be a legitimate reason for abortion because it's so incredibly rare.

The Centers for Disease Control report over 30,000 pregnancies due to rape each year. It might reduce fertility a little, but it's not freaking birth control. He's acting like not consenting to sex is as effective, or moreso, than wearing a condom at preventing pregnancy.

So he banged the help, big farking whoop. Both consenting adults. Nothing to see there.

Mindless adherence to any ideology or affiliation is, well, MINDLESS.


Why, you ask? Because we have seen this mindlessness enough times to realise that it is a major thing.

When Sarah Palin made her gaffe about Paul Revere loudly ringing the bells on his ride to tell the British that Americans weren't going to stand for their nonsense what happened? Any decent historian could tell you that she was speaking garbage. Yet within a day hordes of her mindless followers tried to change the Paul Revere Wikipedia page to say exactly that. Dozens of examples like this have turned up over the last few years.

Deucednuisance: Kaka: I still do not understand the context of his comment. What does he mean by the term legitimate rape?

That the woman didn't actually want it, so it's really against her will. Because if you wanted it, even just a little, that implies consent, therefore, it's not "rape" even if the lying slut claims it was.

He's not saying that any rape can be "legitimate", as in "acceptable". But rather, that most rapes aren't really rape.

Which is proven by the fact of pregnancy: because you can't get pregnant if you were truly raped!

Buncha whoores, the lot of them, just begging for it....

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go wash up.


I realize I am inviting the wrath of the hordes here but am I the only socially left wing human alive who believes (strongly) that violent rape and roofie date rape and whoops I got too drunk and verbally/physically consented to sex I otherwise wouldn't have ARE in fact quite different from one another?

I don't mean for purposes of abortion (I would publicly fund every abortion; people who self select as unwilling parents are generally poor parents who will raise poor humans and public policy should inherently reflect generalities rather than exceptions, but I digress) or any other purpose.

I simply mean these are not analogous situations and should not be viewed as such. It seems odd to me that so many people view violent knife wielding guy as similarly culpable to ordered an extra glass of wine guy. And traumatized terrorized victim as similar to drinks last glass of wine and doesn't remember clearly girl.

Perhaps it's a reflection of my anecdotal experience. I've been around a lot of girls and guys who got too drunk with the precise intent of having sex with whomever. Of hundreds of random hookups the only "rape" I ever heard of was two girls I knew for a fact (wild parties and it so happened I saw both girls on top and enjoying themselves) were willing participants trying to cover their ass for cheating on their boyfriends. Maybe it's just that I was never a part of a frat or anything where female predation would be accepted by the peer group. I'm pretty sure in my booze soaked and sex crazed collegiate environment anyone even attempting something nonconsensual would have promptly gotten his ass kicked. I'm sure those types really exist and I've been lucky not to be close enough to know it.

Maybe it's just old man syndrome; college was 20 years ago and nearly all my friends are married; not a lot of rape accusations going around.

Anyway, I'm glad this guy is staying in the race to lose.

hey hey! i feel smart and appreciated. i knew this day would come.

Yeah, you have to slog through a lot of derp to find something intelligent.
It's cool to see something you've done or said become big on the internet. I get a kick everytime I see the pic upthread with the pelican "What you did there I see it". I made and posted that to Fark YEARS ago in the thread where that pic came from. It was an article about the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary. I could do a search and prove that it's mine and sue for my internet millions, but fark it. People like it and that's all that matters.


i've always liked that pelican

Yeah, if America wasn't full of hateful, stupid Republicans, I'd say he's done for. But it is, so I predict he'll still lose, but at a much lower margin of difference than any of us want to guess at.

You can find lots of people in America who agree with lots of things that are objectively stupid. Because lots of people in America are very, very stupid.

I used to have some respect for the Missouri Republicans.

I'm not voting for this assclown. Period.

Gone In 26 Minutes: There's way too much hysteria and noise over what he said when it's pretty farking clear what he meant. He meant actual rape as opposed to 'omg why did I sleep with him? if anybody sees me leaving his apartment/car... oh... I KNOW HOW TO FIX THIS!' or 'i let him have sex with me without a condom? wtf was i thinking? oh, i know how to fix this if i get pregnant. i sure do!'

You might be the little sweetie that would NEVER do that to anyone, but there are plenty of women that would, do and ENJOY doing it because they're sticking it to patriarchal society and/or don't have to take responsibility for their own actions, the latter not being a female-only thing by any stretch of the imagination, but let's call it what it is, okay?

As someone noted earlier in the thread, the problem people should be having is that he's against abortion in general and he's just trying to weasel it into his campaign to make it sound good to both the rednecks and the moderates. People, of course, overreacted based on the media telling them what it should've meant and them somehow believing there's no way a woman would ever claim being raped even when the sex was consensual. Women are innocent, childlike creatures, after all, who don't fully comprehend or understand their own actions.

DEAR FEMINISTS, YOU ARE SETTING YOUR OWN MOVEMENT 100 YEARS BACK BY DOING THAT shiat, BY THE WAY. IF YOU WANT TO BE TREATED LIKE CHILDREN, THEN YOU WILL HAVE TO DEAL WITH LOSING THE PRIVILEGES THAT COME WITH BEING AN ADULT.

/Men and women suck equally as much
//That's why I only fark myself, as many people have suggested I do


A U.S. Rep running for the Senate (who currently sits on the House Science Committee) exhibits a breathtaking lack of comprehension of basic female biology in support of his position on banning abortion. And your main area of concern here is that women are lying about being raped, something you evidently see as a widespread problem. And you feel that the feminists should sit down and be quiet about Akin's comments because of this problem. That's an ... odd concern.

Gosling: "I said one word in one sentence on one day, and everything changed,"

"I said one word in one sentence on one day, and everything changed,"

"I said one word in one sentence on one day, and everything changed,"

"I said one word in one sentence on one day, and everything changed," 

So not only did you 'misspeak', you still don't fully grasp why people are angry at you.


Yeah - just what word could you change that would make the whole thing ok? "Legitimate safe-sex?"

Leeds: Whoopie Goldberg kind of started this odd thinking. She suggested that there's a difference between (her words) "Rape," and "Rape-Rape." The implication being that some things are titled rape even though they are consensual. Non-consensual "rape" was what Whoopie called "rape-rape."

Goldberg didn't start anything. She just gave a wheel that had been spinning for hundreds of years another tug. Even if you limit yourself to the United States, which didn't exist in the 13th century (when laws claiming that sex resulting in pregnancy wasn't rape were being put on the books in Europe), it goes back pretty far.

(As Nina_Hartley's_Ass: already indicated, but which has apparently been ignored.)



it was just that damn good.


I thought that sounded too much like a pocket ninja or spent miles post...

but magic like that needs to go viral on the facebooks. it would be such a hoot.

we can make this happen people.
