    Aha! That explains it! Rape is more of a man's issue. Brilliant!

Adrenalin is a very powerful hormone. In order for a woman to get pregnant, her hormones have to be "somewhere near just right." Adrenalin could very well interfere with that.

    Admittedly, an anti-abortionist, but a doctor nonetheless says:



    Rep. Todd Akin: Wrong, But Not Alone | Mother Jones

    I most certainly don't agree with his stance, but my common sense tells me that what he said about pregnancy in rape situations may possibly be true. I doubt there've been studies. But I do know we're little chemical factories...and our chemistry has to be within certain normal parameters to get preggers.
    Trouble is we don't want a whole bunch of idiots hanging around in locker rooms encouraging rapes due to this "shut down" mechanism.

    With republicans, we can definitely expect that, especially after one of their Messiahs (i. e. GOP Congressman) validates it in their minds.

    that's a rather stupid jump there. I don't think the guy is encouraging rapes, rather he is claiming that the main argument for abortion on demand is not as common as perhaps he believes his opponents say it is

    What he actually meant to say was "When an anti-abortion GOP pol tries to get it up, politically or otherwise, the female voter has ways to shut that whole thing down."

    You seriously think that dumbass was joking?

    This guy said something that if not taken emotionally, at least could be true. The other guy is just that ****ing ignorant, which is worse?

    Re: Missouri Republican claims 'legitimate rape' rarely results in pregnancy

    Interesting how Republican politicians always feel the need to distinguish "legitimate" rape from (I guess) "fake" rape. You don't see them doing that when they talk about assault or burglary or whatever, do you?

    That is just asinine that you're going to sit there and pretend that you didn't know he was joking... I don't even know what to make of it. You couldn't possibly actually believe that... You thought he literally thought the island would tip over? That's one of his long standing issues- that our military bases on the island were overwhelming the local infrastructure and whatnot. He has always pushed for us to invest more in the local schools and roads and whatnot to offset the damage we were doing. He's written reports on it and whatnot dude.

    Probably in mandatory schooling.

    Interestingly, my boyfriend is a libertarian. See? We progressives aren't all bad.

    And we have a new low for stupidity and classlessness in one post. Well done!
