“Some girls rape easy” – Wisconsin Rep. Roger Rivard (R)

I’m not going to post every time a politician says something incredibly stupid about rape, abortion, or other vagina-related issues. If I did, I’d have no time for any other posts, or… you know… life activities. It’s really a matter of what strikes me as ‘news’ vs ‘same old shit’.

So why does this strike me as ‘news’? I think it’s the
stunningly cavalier, ignorant spin on a sexist classic.

Dear friends, if there happens to be a politician near you,
please remind him (or her, but probably him) that statutory rape is illegal,
both the day of and the day after, and it’s never the tantalizing minor’s
fault.
