[Content Note: Rape culture.]

You know, I was just thinking that what this whole Todd "Legitimate Rape" Akin story needed was for Todd Akin to accuse his critics of overreacting.
"I haven't done anything morally or ethically wrong. It does seem like a little bit of an overreaction."
Spoken like a true rape apologist.

It's funny how the legitimate/forcible/honest rape wing of the Republican Party—by which I mean: the entire party—would swear from here to Mitt's Moon Mansion and back that they aren't rape apologists, and yet they all sound exactly like the the same goddamn shit-stirring defenders of rape jokes and accused rapists who haunt the comments sections of every anti-rape advocate in the blogosphere.

Funny that.
