Republican Biology

I assume a lot of people have already seen this, but it seems way too insane, and funny in a really sad way I guess, not to share.

All I can say is, I just caught "The Campaign" yesterday, and it's almost too close to real life.

Yeah... That's pretty bad. Not only does he show a complete disregard for the medical science, his statement seems to completely exist to marginalize the effects of rape on women physically, and (by association) psychologically. Completely asinine.

Exactly. The phrase "legitimate, forcible rape" is not really the most subtle way to insinuate what he believes to be a common inverse. I suppose that by suggesting that those women who become pregnant clearly weren't really raped, he's able to disregard the awful consequences of a strictly uniform, fundamentalist, and (to my mind) archaic piece of legislature he advocates.

America is a scary place.

To more or less repeat what I just asked on facebook as a comment to another link on this story, and to add to it - what's with this weird war on women lately? I mean, sure, sexism's always been around and that's cool and everything, but haters seem to be stepping up their game lately. How come? Women are cool guys when you get to know them. I can only turn to conspiracy theories to figure it out, and assume that whatever shadow government that's controlling both Left and Right is more concerned about splitting the country up between Left and Right to make the populace easier to control in their divisive distraction, than actually getting any Republicans elected. That makes WAY more sense than having any human being hold such backwards, hateful opinions.
