I am an opinionated SOB and I like it……but I do not post much on issue that concern women….not that I do not care ….just I am male and I do not feel that I have the expertise to comment without sounding a little naive…….I do hope my female readers will forgive me and understand….
But from time to time there are some news that I just cannot back away from….today are a couple of those issues……
First, there is the idiot on the Right….I know that does not narrow the field very much so I will name names…Ann Coulter….this is a woman, and I use the term loosely, that just cannot shut the Hell up…….her newest babble is on the issue of rape……..
Coulter dismissed the notion of date or acquaintance rape out of hand, insisting that unless a victim gets “hit on the head with a brick,” it isn’t a legitimate rape.
“People know what a rape is,” Coulter insisted, “and to have girls trying to get attention — from Lena Dunham to this poor psychotic at UVA, Lady Gaga claiming she was raped but she didn’t admit it to herself for five years. What major crime do people say, ‘I didn’t admit it to myself?’”
In a second part of the interview, the 53-year-old pundit said that liberals are vastly overplaying instances of campus rape, which, in her experience is generally perpetrated by liberal men like the “Clintons and Kennedys,” anyway.
Oh there is so much ugliness I could spread about Coulter….but I will refrain and allow my readers to do it at their leisure……
Second….there will always be a Right wing legislator that, usually male, that has a “good” idea when it comes to rape…..and this guy is NOT one of those people….instead he is a galloping a/hole….if anything………
A bill proposed by a Republican state lawmaker in Missouri would require a woman seeking an abortion to obtain notarized consent from the baby’s father, even if he is physically abusive toward her.
The bill’s sponsor, State Rep. Rick Brattin, told Mother Jones that while the bill has exceptions for rape victims and to protect the life of the mother, women in domestic violence situations are not exempt from having to ask the father’s permission. “What does that have to do with the child’s life?” Brattin said. “Just because it was an abusive relationship, does that mean the child should die?”
In explaining the bill to Mother Jones, Brattin channeled Todd Akin, the former Republican congressman from Missouri who, during a failed 2012 Senate bid, said that women who are victims of “legitimate rape” have mechanisms in their bodies that prevent them from getting pregnant. Brattin said his bill would require a woman to be able to prove that a “legitimate rape” happened in order to avoid having to ask for a man’s consent for the abortion.
“Just like any rape, you have to report it, and you have to prove it,” said Brattin. “So you couldn’t just go and say, ‘Oh yeah, I was raped,’ and get an abortion. It has to be a legitimate rape.”
Okay….a legit rape? Old white guys are the most pathetic of Americans……they are stuck somewhere between the 18th century and 1950……
When this d/bag passes a bowling ball through his penis…then only then may he have a right to speak. PERIOD!
