Legitimate Rape?

“First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare,” Akin, the Republican Senate nominee in Missouri, said. ”If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

-Rep. Todd Akin

Ummm…yeah. I don’t even know how to respond to this because this is overflowing with so much nonsense from so many angles. Of course, Akin has issued a faux-pology for his dump on science and morality, but the stench has already reached the media.

I consider this an open forum on the matter. Please chime in on your thoughts regarding Akin’s statements regarding rape and pregnancy.

  1. Sooooo….let me get this straight. A white, rich, male, Christian Republican is saying hateful things about women and sexual violence?

    Sounds pretty normal to me, Brothawolf.

  2. … Just… just wow. I’ve heard a lot of ridiculous things about rape coming from men like him (and received some harassment because of my own… experience, so to speak), but I think we just hit the fucking apex of idiocy. What sort of fucking pseudo-science bullshit is this? Is this considered a legitimate to pro-lifers?

    … I think I’m going to go lie down. I’ve had my fill of shitheads today.

  3. Does this idiot need to go take a biology course are something. What a idiot!!! I just don’t know how to respond to that craziness.

      1. Unfortunately, it’s true. I’ve once ran across a website catering to the desires of people of rape fantasy fans. Ugh! It ‘s amazing that some women can fantasize something as sick and tragic as rape.

  4. I don’t know what to say about this guy. Makes you wonder how he would react if this happened to one of his kin?He must not have no conscience to make a sick suggestion like that.
