If you have a vagina and vote Republican, you should be put in the stocks and pelted with rotten fruit.

mrshowrules: Diogenes: "I don't find anything so horrible about that."

Really makes me wish we could forcibly and violently impregnate some of these "men" who are so cavalier about sexual violence.

I suspect the impossibility of some of these Evangelical Conservatives getting impregnated from a man, is not from lack of trying.


Oh thank you
that just totally made my day

There is no need to worry. God wanted you to be raped. Your system will shut everything down. And even if you get a baby, it will be a gift from god and WONDERFUL!!!!

So basically no downside

That's why I take the high road. Ladies, in the interest of gender equality, I want you to sexually assault me. Whenever I'm walking down the street, slap me on the ass and whistle. Follow me into dark alleys, strip me naked, and throw yourself on me. You don't need consent; I clearly deserve it, what with me dressing like a slut.

We can only move on together if I know what it's like.

embryology, evolution, and the Big Bang are "lies straight from the Pit of Hell ... lies to try to keep me and all the folks who are taught that from understanding that they need a savior."

Guess which party?


The Party of Constant Effrontery and Moral DerpitudeTM, of course.

jake_lex: Yeah, but even at that, the derpiest derpmeister in the Republican Party should know that the vast majority of voters find these comments repellent.


High-RWA personalities also tend to be (loosely speaking) stupid. While the two measures are only weakly correlated, there's an overlap between high-RWA and high-SDO; the "double-highs" are really, really scary.

You'd think that by now anyone filing papers to run for office as a republican would also have to include a form swearing that they have been through a non-biblical base sexual education class along with a signed pledge to never utter the word 'rape'.

If they weren't allowed to use that term they would call it "sex women regret having" as a euphemism being as clever as they are.

It should stay a dream. Try that in reality and you'll find out a painful truth; some things wash out of hair easily. Bits of stringy half-melted marshmallow are not one of those. You'll inevitably miss with a few which land behind the pillory and under the bed, which just ends up attracting ants and other bugs. Plus, the sugar content can lead to a yeast infection.

I know so many women who vote Republican, though. I don't understand it. The ones who are single-issue voters on abortion, yeah, okay, I get it, though I disagree with them. But women who vote for the GOP for economic reasons? WTH? I remember a woman at work saying when Obama was reelected that "now [she] has to pay for a bunch of lazy people." Another woman talked about how "everyone hit retirement age today! no one has to work anymore!" First off, the GOP's economic record is pretty horrible. Second off, if I were a woman, I think I would vote for the party that respects my rights to my own body, even if their economic plan were slightly different from what I wanted.

(That's the other thing. People act like the economic plans proposed by Obama are THE WORST THING EVER and SO DIFFERENT from Republican plans. They're not really that different at all. If a real left-wing President ever gets into office in this country, heads are going to asplode.)

Yeah, those evangelicals have a pretty harsh view of Catholics.


I have a fundie cousin in Portland who once told my wife and me that Catholicism is idolatry, not Christianity, knowing the whole time my wife was raised Catholic.

We were like *blink* *blink*, "Hey, thanks for dinner! We gotta get back to the hotel...early start home tomorrow!"

Nina_Hartley's_Ass:
Did he go to the same medical school as Limbaugh?


he did run afoul of Rush by saying something along the lines of 'he's an entertainer', and then had to grovel and apologize. i'm too lazy to find the quote, but it's entirely lickspittle.

while it isn't medical school, i'm sure it qualifies you to give prescriptions, at least. and it will serve as a hilarious counterpoint when his half assed "I'm sorry if I offended anybody" apology ever happens for this. (which i really doubt. this is double-down-derp territory - if you could possibly think this to begin with, you're already retarded enough to argue it to the death).

As I mentioned in yesterday's Fark Daily Rape Thread, I got into an argument with a woman on Facebook (she's an evangelical Baptist) who believed that no abortion should be allowed ever ever under any circumstance, including when the conception in due to rape. Also, the victim should fully be on the hook for the medical bills to carry the child to term. My response was "Your complete lack of compassion for the victim doesn't seem very Christian to me," after which I got no responses.

I fail to see how any person with a vagina votes Republican these days, but there you have it...they are out there.

I don't have much to add to this conversation, but I can tell you that there are places from which it is difficult to extract a broken banana. Trust me on this one.

But it's not the decision that THEMESELVES are going to make. They don't give a shiat about other women.

I think the biggest factor that makes someone a Republican is selfishness and lack of empathy for others. Also in that is the shortsightedness that improvement in society helps themselves too.

FlashHarry: i love, love, LOVE that the GOP is incapable of letting something like this lie. they ALWAYS double-down on shiat like this. they're so predictable!


Well, see, blackjack doesn't work like that. You only get to double down once per hand.

They doubled down, the next card came up, they lost the hand. This is taking your pants off, slapping them on the table and saying 'double or nothing'.

WHY the fark hasn't the GOP sent out a damned memo to all their people? Doesn't have to be wrong, just:
"Don't say the word rape. Stop bringing up Atkin. Don't defend his statements. Don't just bring him up unsolicited."

If you truly believe that a fetus is a human from the moment of conception, then wanting to ban abortions in the case of rape is logically consistent (note that I'm not agreeing with it, just saying it's at least consistent).

What I really don't get is the people who want to ban abortions in the case of endangering the life of the mother. No one would demand that you risk your life for someone else, especially if when you die, it takes the other person with you anyway. So...yeah. I don't understand.

He said he was partially right about the body makes it hard for a woman to get pregnant from a rape, then his explanation said it has actually no bearing on it whatsoever making Akins 100% wrong.

That's what the article said.

That depends on how you look at it. From my perspective, the more they talk like this, the more voters are reminded just what kind of people they're dealing with, the less Republicans will get into office. The country as a whole benefits. There's a lot to be gained from Republicans continuing to talk about their beliefs regarding rape.

Ok quote where he said there are effects from being rape that make it make it much harder for a woman to get pregnant. Quote what he said that supports that.
