You threw Jane Doe under the bus. You threw all of us under the bus.
I try to imagine you solemnly expressing these sympathies for two young murderers of a 16-year-old girl. Would you say how sad it is to see their lives ruined by imprisonment? Or would you use words like “heinous,” “disgusting” and “unthinkable” to describe their crimes? Alas, when a young boy rapes a girl, it’s a “misstep.” He’s still learning the boundaries. He doesn’t know what he’s doing is rape. I hate to be the one to break the news (ha!), but the boundaries are simple. Everything outside of a “yes” and/or enthusiastic consent is outside the boundaries. And anyone who violates those boundaries earns their “S.”
CNN is catching hell for its rape apology coverage o the Steubenville, Ohio, convictions. The Onion’s SportsDome, which ran on Comedy Central, published a piece in 2011 that perfectly predicted this bizarre CNN segment. Watch “College Basketball Star Heroically Overcomes Tragic Rape He Committed” and check out how incredibly close this is in message to what CNN was airing on Sunday.
And in Missouri, Todd Akin … was asked by a local news source about rape and he said, ‘Look, in a legitimate rape situation’ — and what he meant by legitimate rape was just look, someone can say I was raped: a scared-to-death 15-year-old that becomes impregnated by her boyfriend and then has to tell her parents, that’s pretty tough and might on some occasion say, ‘Hey, I was raped.’ That’s what he meant when he said legitimate rape versus non-legitimate rape. I don’t find anything so horrible about that. But then he went on and said that in a situation of rape, of a legitimate rape, a woman’s body has a way of shutting down so the pregnancy would not occur. He’s partly right on that.
I’ve struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from god. And even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.
GOP Senate candidate Richard Mourdock on pregnancy that results from rape — it’s a gift from God.

2. Roofies: From what I understand from doctors, if roofies are used in a case of “legitimate” rape, or “rape-rape,” the girl’s body has a way of shutting that down and expelling the poison. Unless the girl was drunk, in which case she was asking for it. And if she gets pregnant, you know it wasn’t rape-rape.
First of all, from what I understand from doctors, (pregnancy from rape) is really rare … If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.
Her name is Savannah Dietrich, a 17-year-old from Louisville, Kentucky. Frustrated with the gag order she faced after the two boys who sexually assaulted her, took photo evidence and shared the images with friends entered a plea deal that amounted to a slap on the wrist, Dietrich violated the court order and spoke openly about the incident, revealing her attackers’ names on Twitter. She now faces a $500 fine and 180 days’ jail time for holding the court in contempt. Dietrich, not her attackers, will be the one facing severe penalties. OUTRAEGOUS. Share this.
Let’s imagine a world in which women cut men’s dicks off. Like, frequently. To the extent that one in five men has had his dick cut off by a woman or had a woman attempt to cut his dick off.
