It Continues to Be a Real Mystery Why Republicans Aren't Connecting with a Majority of Female Voters

[Content Note: Rape culture.]

More terrific commentary on rape from another Republican legislator:
Using the profile name "Stick," [Republican Texas state Representative Jonathan Stickland] responded to a question about sex with his wife in a comment posted to a fantasy football discussion forum in 2008.

"Rape is non existent in marriage, take what you want my friend!" the lawmaker reportedly wrote to another forum user who complained that his wife would not perform the "reverse cowboy" position during sex.

Stickland suggested in another comment that he wanted to cheat on a drug test. ...The user called "Stick" later revealed that he had purchased a "detox drink" and was trying to hide it from his wife.
He seems neat! Since these comments were made public, Strickland, who obviously describes himself in his Twitter bio as a "Christian conservative liberty loving Republican" because what the fuck else would it say, has posted only "a single message on his normally busy Twitter timeline."
