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.

From another article:
And in Missouri, Todd Akin ... was asked by a local news source about rape and he said, 'Look, in a legitimate rape situation' - and what he meant by legitimate rape was just look, someone can say I was raped: a scared-to-death 15-year-old that becomes impregnated by her boyfriend and then has to tell her parents, that's pretty tough and might on some occasion say, 'Hey, I was raped.' That's what he meant when he said legitimate rape versus non-legitimate rape. I don't find anything so horrible about that. But then he went on and said that in a situation of rape, of a legitimate rape, a woman's body has a way of shutting down so the pregnancy would not occur. He's partly right on that.

For those of you who stopped counting and started bleeding from the eyes, that was nine. Or, nine more uses of the word "rape" than any Republican should put into a single paragraph.

How is it even possible there are this many idiots, in positions of power, who actively defend and embrace rape?  I really felt like rape was something that nearly everyone in the universe agreed was a terrible thing, and yet, every other day, someone in the Republican party comes out with a new way of saying it's not so bad.  I honestly don't understand how the party has essentially come out in goddamned  favor of rape. Of all the things in the entire universe they could come out in favor of, that's the one they chose?  Carjacking would be more popular.

So Akin is wrong, but the media shouldn't have torn it apart because he might have been right in an utterly different situation?

Wow that's some white knighting.

that's not what happened.

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.

"We tell infertile couples all the time that are having trouble conceiving because of the woman not ovulating, 'Just relax. Drink a glass of wine. And don't be so tense and uptight because all that adrenaline can cause you not to ovulate."

educate yourself on the mechanics of impregnation and it'll make sense.

Um, you might want to follow your own advice rather than continue making statements like that. Or do you really believe that an egg is released when the presence of sperm is detected? Based on the very public statements of some Republican lawmakers it would seem that at least some of your higher echelon political leaders believe something like that. And you are telling others to educate themselves? In order to put a better face on the consequences, both physical and mental of rape? I realize that this is likely a manifestation of "being a team player", but in this instance, it is not only transparent, but morally repugnant.

The egg is USUALLY released AFTER the sperm is present.

Your fertile period starts about 4-5 days before ovulation, and ends about 24-48 hours after it. This is because sperm can live in your body for approximately 4 to 5 days, and the egg can live for 24 to 48 hours after being released. You are most fertile on the day before and the day of ovulation. Knowing your fertile days can help you increase your chances of getting pregnant, or avoid an unwanted pregnancy. Read Ovulation and Pregnancy and Ovulation and Contraception for more information.

No, you're misstating their point. Their point is not that the rape victim will have sex again in the next few days; their point is that it's just barely possible that a women might be raped at the moment that she would otherwise have been ovulating, and therefore will avoid pregnancy, where a lascivious slut will enjoy being raped, ovulate as scheduled during the act, then become pregnant days later by the rapist's jizz which she stored in her vajayjay for just such a nefarious purpose. Then, of course, she'll cry rape so that the 47% will have to buy Air Jordans some day for her non-rape rape-baby.

That's what the article said.

his explanation is why Akin was partially wrong.

In what way was he right, according to Gingrey? Because I'm not seeing it. He says adrenaline can prevent ovulation, therefore Akin was partly right. Wut?

exactly. Women get pregnant when they are ovulating. If they do not ovulate, they do not get pregnant.

If the stress of a rape prevents ovulation, the only pregnancy being prevented is one caused by future sex, not the rape that is preventing ovulation.

I think he figured that out now, which is why he's no longer responding to this point.


No he will try to pretend he meant something else. He always does or start name calling like usual.

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

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.


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.
