“First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare,” Akin told KTVI-TV in an interview posted Sunday. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”
News flash! The female body is this amazing, mysterious thing that totally knows when a rape is “legitimate” or not! Oh wait, maybe not. Rep. Todd Akin, Republican of Assholedome, Missouri — you’ve just met your Macaca moment!
Akin now claims he “misspoke” but he hasn’t apologized to the thousands of rape victims in the United States whom he just metaphorically raped again by calling them liars. Not to mention the old wive’s tale he just perpetrated that potentially puts other women at risk. Rep. Todd Akin, you’re an asshole. The only cherry on this shit pie would be the discovery that Akin serves on the House Committee on Science, Space & Technology. Republicans, let’s make a deal: we’ll stop making fun of you when you stop being so mockable.
Here’s some advice to all the old, white, male Republicans who are still sucking on the teet of their old, white, male Republican privilege: Go fuck yourselves.
Oh yes, please keep telling me how the “war on women” is all in our pretty little heads. And remember the whole “forcible rape” bullshit from last January? Remember that? How the House Republicans — primarily old, white, males — tried to redefine rape? Yeah, I remember that. Let’s remember that Paul Ryan was part of that little hateful cabal, too.
The Republican War On Women continues apace. Carry on.
