Listen, don’t be mad at Akin. He’s just the one who is dumb enough to say it out loud. In this country, unless a victim is lily white and adequately demure, we’ve always suspected her of wanting it — in essence, “delegitimizing” rape. God forbid you are a minority, a powerful woman or just plain sexy. A little dick is probably all you need to mellow you out.
Fortunately for us, that’s just what most men have….*ahem*
A little humor (very little) to counterbalance the angst I feel when I realize that I live in a country where it is still okay to violate me physically (What? You didn’t know I’m sexy?) …unless we are on the cusp of a presidential campaign. In that case, you could practically suffocate in all the fake outrage.
Please! Give me a break!
