Let’s talk about rape. I mean, there’s rape, then there’s rape-rape and then there’s legitimate rape, right? Rape is bad, we know that and if you’re a decent human being, you’re taught that from the time you’re a little kid. You don’t touch somebody else’s “no-no zone” unless you’re asked either verbally or with body language. I suggest you ask, just to make sure and take any of the questions and variables out of the equation. It may take some of the sexiness out of the moment, but there’s nothing sexy about facing a rape charge because you misread the signals you thought you were receiving from some intoxicated co-ed. But, if you rape someone, and it’s legitimate rape, they can’t get pregnant, right? I mean, that’s what this dipshit Todd Akin, the representative from Missouri would have you believe. In an interview that aired Sunday, these were his comments:

“It seems to me, first of all, from what I understand from doctors that’s really rare,” Akin said when asked whether a woman who was raped and became pregnant from the assault should be allowed to get an abortion. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

Wow. I really am speechless at the level of stupidity that comment displays. It’s like saying in a room full of black people that Mitt Romney is going to put you back in chains, another faux pas by another politician made in recent days.

This guy actually believes so strongly that abortion is wrong, he’s going to spout some right-wing, medieval, dark ages bull shit. That kind of stuff makes me embarrassed to be a “right leaning” individual. And he’s not the only one. There are people out there, educated, upstanding people that believe that a woman can only get pregnant if she “wants it.” This entire line of thinking sets us back 100 years and essentially makes it sound like any woman who gets pregnant by rape (and it happens more often than you think) actually wanted the vilest thing imaginable to happen to her.

But, if we’re pointing fingers at Mr. Akin, we need to be fair. He’s not the only idiot around. There’s a certain, black, Jewish lesbian who once dated Ted Danson we need to mention when it comes to this subject.

A few years ago, Roman Polanski was found alive and well in Switzerland. If you don’t know who Roman is, he was a director from the 70’s who was accused of date raping a young lady in her teens by drugging her and sexually assaulting her in his home. He fled the country during trial and has been on the lamb ever since. This guy is as big of piece of shit as anyone, but since he’s an “artist” the Hollywood left ran to his side to defend him, including Whoopi Goldberg.

Now Whoopi, speaking on her show, “The View” made a comment in Polanski’s defense saying that while he was accused of statutory rape, it “wasn’t rape-rape.” Basically, this idiot is saying if you sexually assault a minor, it’s not as bad as holding an “of-age” woman down and forcing yourself on her. Where is the outrage? Where are the demands for Whoopi’s head on a platter? There weren’t any then, and there won’t be any now. Because the fact of the matter is, while both comments were ridiculous and downright offensive, Whoopi is a hero to left and while they control the media, they don’t attack their own.

Besides, Whoopi won an academy award for Ghost, so why shouldn’t we listen to her?
