“Well you know, people always want to try to make that as one of those things, well how do you, how do you slice this particularly tough sort of ethical question. First of all, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.
But let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something. I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child.”
~ Rep. Todd Akin during his appearance on The Jaco Report.
Cue every woman’s reaction around the world:
Seriously, why is it that the multitude of discussions and ridiculous statements about women, their bodies, their rights, and their lives are, for the most part, by White Republican men? What the hell do they know? Have they or anyone close to them been affected by any of the horrible shit that can potentially happen to women? Probably not because otherwise it’s unfathomable these men would continue to spew such foolishness. I mean, they just jizz their ideas and opinions all over everyone’s faces and then hand us a towel and cab fare, tell us to clean up, and get the hell out. So, if you are Republican with a peen, could you please shut your damn mouth when it comes to women because your ignorance has reached Code Red.
