    Feminist Blogger Now In Fear – Men May Have Discovered That We Are On To Them 

    A “radical feminist” blogger wrote a post a while back on how all “Penis in Vagina” or PIV intercourse is rape.  Of course myself and others who read this dribble rebutted and or made fun of the post.  Well, that caused more traffic at her blog.  Most bloggers are happy to get additional traffic.  Isn’t the entire point of writing these posts is getting others to read them?  Not in her case.

    When men view our blogs in such large numbers, it’s a threat. They’re not just looking at it, they view it with the intent of harming radical feminists and women in general. They do it to collect information so they know what next to do to prevent women from going there. They batter radfem work in public for all women to see and show the result of their verbal and written battering as an example of what will await women if they do, think or say the same. They write nasty and threatening comments, that in order to trash, I have to read at least a few words of. Even though it doesn’t hurt my feelings, they are still harmful and inevitably affect my thoughts.

    How exactly does she know the gender of the those making the hits?  I need to update my analytics, I don’t these type of break-downs immediately.  Anyhoo, at least some are men.  Those men are hateful beasts that only want to destroy.

    85,000, that’s the maximum number of views I had in one day a couple of weeks ago when the liberals and MRAs circulated my PIV blogpost for punishment. Unlike a normal blogger, attracting 85,000 hits isn’t something I want to celebrate. It’s threatening: you know they’re after you, it only means you’ve hit men’s radar and you have no idea what they plan to do. Will they attempt to hack into my blog? Will they try to find info about me? The kinds of thought this leads me to is 85,000 men going after me in real life. Probably a bit less if you discount the women. If that happened, how on earth could I hide from tens of thousands of men?

    There is no denying there is a whole lot of crazy out there, but hey isn’t this type of talk adding to it?  I mean does she really believe that men are worried about her getting the word out that having intercourse is rape that they want to silence her?  We. Must. Not. Let. This. Out.  She must be stopped at all costs.  She is letting out their little secret.  They only want intercourse to subjugate us.  We are nothing without them and they must be allowed to continue to rule the world.  Oh my.

    All this is gaslighting and bullying, men’s lies are meant to sound convincing. They convince with the use of force, ordering me to comply to their view by using an authoritarian, terrorising tone. ‘How dare you see otherwise. You’re crazy. You’re a bully. Etc.’ Which is why it works so well to instil self-doubt because it’s a mindfuck, it’s thought-blocking, it’s also an assault and it creates fear and willingness to appease to avoid further assaults. Brainwashing works through a mix of mind assaults, terror and constant repetition of a same message until it’s hammered into our brain, which is psychological violence. 85,000 views and hundreds of trolling comments is in effect a blitzkrieg brainwashing attack by men and male-colonised women. Hundreds of men and their pawns attempting to reprogram the minds of deviant female bloggers, women who don’t comply and who break through men’s myths and lies.

    It’s interesting that Cathy Brennan’s response to the whole thing led a commenter, Tracy, to comment about what it meant on reformism: I hadn’t framed it in that way (see discussion herehere and here). I’ve been thinking about it for a while but haven’t had the time to comment on it properly so I’ll continue my thoughts in this post. Tracy defined CB’s post as reformist to the extent that CB doesn’t name the agent, that is why men isolating us from one another is so dangerous, why it’s so important to huddle together in this circumstance [because men are waiting in line to rape and kill us]. CB asks us to take safety measures against a threat -men- that she won’t name, and at the same time treats men as an audience to appease, as if they would take note and change their behaviour accordingly. Tracy named that gaslighting because it’s acting as if two opposites (truth vs. omission/lie; threat vs. safety) were the same. Of course it’s not CB’s fault because she herself is victim of it.

    Men are waiting in line to rape and kill us?  Really?  I have never seen nor heard of such a line.  May I make a suggestion, if such a line exists outside of your home, move.  My neighborhood is quite safe.  No men actively trying to rape you on a daily basis around.

    I get that most women that call themselves a “feminist” call this thinking silly.  The problem is that this is the logical conclusion to that thinking.  Men are bad.  Women are victims.  Women are treated so unfairly that the government must step in to  protect them.  If the entire belief system is based on that women are tough enough and smart enough to be like just like men why in the world would you need the government to step in?

    Life will never be fair nor will women and men ever be totally equal.  There are differences between men and women that just are.  Most men are stronger.  Our upper body strength isn’t what there is.  Of course there are women who are stronger than men, but generally speaking that isn’t the case.  There was just a scientific study released that our brains are hardwired differently.  It shows up in the scans. We are built this way.  It is biological.

    What really gets my goat about feminism is the fact that the majority of the work for women and “fairness” is done in the industrialized west.  If they spend the majority of their time talking about how in some cultures the physical abuse of women is not only commonplace, but perfectly acceptable it would be different.  In some countries, such as Afghanistan, women were beaten in public for having one strand of hair showing.  The same still happens in Iran.  Some women are not allowed to work.  To heck with the fact that their husband or main provider has been killed or is missing for any reason, she still is not allowed to get a job to support herself.  At least not without the threat of jail, physical abuse, up to and including the threat of death.  I don’t hear these topics being discussed much in the world of feminism.

    Feminism also makes great assumptions about men that I take issue with.  Why do these women think that men don’t feel bad about working long hours and being away from their children?  Do they think that they don’t care that they miss the school plays?  Do they honestly believe that men don’t get wanky when the house needs work?  It is assumed that they don’t feel overwhelmed by a weekend of yard work, soccer games, shopping, and whatever else their particular chores end up being.  I am sorry but I find that very hard to believe.

    I know plenty of men who feel just as overwhelmed as women do when it comes to using their time most efficiently to get everything they want done accomplished.  I also know men who are stay at home dads, so it is their job to clean, to cook, to do laundry, and whatever else needs to be done around the house all the while taking care of the kids.  It is simply a silly assertion that men don’t feel the same type of things that women do.  We all feel a certain amount of guilt in our lives.  We all question our choices from time to time.  I don’t think I have ever met a parent, male or female, that doesn’t wonder if they could have done certain things differently.  That don’t dwell, even temporarily, on the mistakes that we all make when raising children.  They don’t come with a handbook, it is trial by fire.  That is especially true with the first one.

     Just because we make different choices in many instances it doesn’t mean that men don’t have the same type of emotions that women do.  One of the main differences is that men tend to keep these things to themselves.  They don’t dwell on them in the same way that some women tend to do.   Many men look at this as part of life and complaining about it makes them “less manly”.   Men deal with them differently, that doesn’t mean that they don’t feel it.  That is what feminism today says.  That somehow men are emotionless and guilt free.  They live lives that they actively believe makes them superior to women.  A very silly and uncaring assertion.

      Wow. Just wow. One has to wonder what experience(s) drove her to this point. The point where she sees all men as evil, as a a threat to be reckoned with, to fear and loathe. I love women. When I am with them, I want to serve them, not own them. I want them to feel beautiful, wanted, adored. Apparently that is “rape”.

        It doesn’t take any wondering to know what drove her to this point, it’s feminism. This is unsugar coated feminism. The only real difference between this nut and Feminism101 is how well they hide the crazy. Both are saying the same things, but sites like Feminism101 is more creative with euphemisms and metaphor to avoid the obvious balls out crazy this one spouts.

        Really, this is what I see when I read almost anything written by a feminist.

          I actually enjoy reading Camille Paglia. I normally disagree with what she writes and her conclusions, but every so often I do agree with her. To me she is one of the “feminists” that gets it. American and European women are not the issues anymore. It is the women who live in non industrailized countries that are facing real issues. We have it made in comparison.

    Any Inkling I May Become a Feminist is Now Gone 

    While it is true that wasn’t likely to happen in any event, this certainly cured me.  A friend of mine pointed out this blog post to me, and oh my.  I honestly don’t know what to say about this except there sure is a great deal of crazy out there.

    PIV is always rape, Ok?

    It took me a little while, but I finally figured out that PIV is Penis in Vagina.  Not allowed in the feminist world apparently.  Which I am very confused by.  I was always led to believe that a main tenet of feminism is that you get to “have sex like a man”.  Apparently we were wrong for thinking that.  Intercourse, bad.  Always.  Just bad.

    First, well intercourse is NEVER sex for women. Only men experience rape as sexual and define it as such. Sex for men is the unilateral penetration of their penis into a woman (or anything else replacing and symbolising the female orifice) whether she thinks she wants it or not – which is the definition of rape: that he will to do it anyway and that he uses her and treats her as a receptacle, in all circumstances – it makes no difference to him experiencing it as sexual. That is, at the very least, men use women as useful objects and instruments for penetration, and women are dehumanised by this act. It is an act of violence.

    I am surprised the word empowered doesn’t appear in this paragraph.  After all that is what feminism is supposed to be, right?  Empowering women.  So ladies if you like to have a little somethin’ somethin’ from time to time, you are anti-woman.  Hear that.  No more penetration for you.  Apparently if you want to have a baby:

     Penetration of the penis into the vagina is completely unnecessary for conception.

    Well yes that is true.  One doesn’t have to have intercourse to become pregnant.  That can happen if a couple uses the “pull out” method of birth control or if a man doesn’t quite make it to the “promiseland” before finishing the deed.  You can absolutely get pregnant without intercourse.  But, speaking of pregnancy:

    As FCM pointed out some time ago, intercourse is inherently harmful to women and intentionally so, because it causes pregnancy in women. The purpose of men enforcing intercourse regularly (as in, more than once a month) onto women is because it’s the surest way to cause pregnancy and force childbearing against our will, and thereby gain control over our reproductive powers. There is no way to eliminate the pregnancy risk entirely off PIV and the mitigating and harm-reduction practices such as contraception and abortion are inherently harmful, too. Reproductive harms of PIV range from pregnancy to abortion, having to take invasive, or toxic contraception, giving birth, forced child bearing and rearing and all the complications that go with them which may lead up to severe physical and emotional damage, disability, destitution, illness, or death.

    Oh my, when you put it like that I wouldn’t want to have a baby either.  Bad, horrible, little creatures aren’t they?   While I suppose that some women have complications during childbirth, most don’t.  It is a relatively natural process that keeps the human race going.  Maybe that is a bad thing too.  Who knows?

    But I am impressed to hear a feminist say that abortion is inherently harmful to women.  After all you don’t hear that coming from that side of the aisle too often.  Normally it is their “right”.  I recently saw a photo of young boy, maybe six or seven holding a sign telling me to stay out of his mommy’s vagina.  Apparently the next nominee for Mother of the Year didn’t get the memo of how bad intercourse, birth control, and abortion are for women.  They must be a bad feminist, or at least very misguided.

    I am not going to go into detail here, but I would venture to say that most women find consensual sex to be pleasurable.  But alas, we have been programmed to believe that is true.

    There’s a reason men need to groom us into it, and why this grooming takes so long- because it’s so grossly violating and traumatising that we would otherwise never submit to intercourse. The only reason we may now not feelraped or have the impression we desired or initiated PIV, is because men broke down our barriers very skillfully and progressively from birth, breaking down our natural defences to pain and invasion, our confidence in our own perceptions and sensations of fear and disgust that tell us male sexual invasion is painful, harmful and traumatic.

    Through an all-pervasive and powerful male propaganda, they stuff our minds from infancy with the idea that PIV is normal, desirable and erotic, before we can even conceive of it as something horrifying, and make sure we never see any alternative to their lie – or that if we do, we can no longer take in the information, are punished for thinking and saying otherwise. The fact we may not immediately feel raped doesn’t mean it’s not rape, objectively speaking

    I guess we can add bad media, bad hollywood, bad culture.  All of which tells us that intercourse is a normal, healthy thing that both man and women can enjoy.  I personally think it is far better in a committed relationship between two people who love each other as opposed to scratching an itch, but that is neither here nor there in this conversation.  All.Bad.  All of it.

    Lastly, from a structural point of view, as a class oppressed by men, we are not in any position of freedom to negotiate what men do to us collectively and individually within the heterocage. Men, by whom we are possessed, colonised and held captive, are the sole agents and organisers of PIV. Men dominate us precisely so we can’t opt out of sexual abuse by them; intercourse is the very means through which men subordinate us, the very purpose of their domination, to control human reproduction.

    I guess just saying no doesn’t cut it.

    Seriously?  It is very hard to wrap my head around this type of thinking.  I have to assume this author is a lesbian or asexual.  Not to get into too much graphic detail here, but don’t lesbians use sex toys such as a vibrator?  I was always under the impression that they did.  Which is another reason that I have never fully understood being a lesbian.  If you are going to simulate sexual intercourse between a man and woman, why not just be with a man?  But I could be wrong.  Most of my homosexual friends are men, so this has never really come up in conversation for me before.  Nor would I necessarily want it to.  But that has been the impression that I have had for many years, maybe I got it from a movie or book.  I am not quite sure where I got it and I could very easily be wrong about it.

    In any event, this is reason 2,394,294 of why I will never a feminist.  You should read the comments.  Again, oh my.  Apparently people agree with her.

      Basically, the feminist’s unsuitability, undesirability and/or ineptitude for heterosexual relationship is reordered, via psychological projection and sour-grapes rationalization, into a hostility toward males that manifests itself in accusations of oppression, harassment, etc.

      One you take feminist rhetoric seriously, you recognize it as an ideology of madness — that is to say, mental disorder expressing itself in the form of politics. We can compare it only to other dangerous radicalisms of similarly psychopathic origins, e.g., the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia.

      Now that the Clinton-Lewinsky affair is over 15 years in the past, feminists, who defended Mr. Bill by calling his actions “consensual”, have apparently decided that it’s now to safe to revert to their earlier “all sex is rape” mentality.

    Tawana Brawley Finally Paying her Comeuppance 

    Tawana Brawley, the woman who falsely accused various men of holding her captive, raping her, then leaving her in a trash bag with racial slurs scrawled across her body has had her wages garnished in what is due to one of the men she accused.  Steven Pagones has been waiting years and years for the payments on the settlement he was given, more than $400,000.  You may recall this is the case that helped make Al Sharpton a household name when he came to her defense after she accused all white men of rape.

    Sharpton staged sit-ins and rallies in order to see “justice” done in this case.  Police could find no evidence to file charges, but of course that didn’t stop the race baiting Sharpton from pushing the issue.  Once it reached a grand jury they found no evidence to back up her claims.  The story goes that she stayed away from home for several days and couldn’t find a reasonable excuse that her parents would believe and came up with this story.  While it does seem to be the case that her mother’s boyfriend was a violent man who reportedly had beat her in the past, it still doesn’t justify ruining the lives of innocent men.

    Brawley showed no signs of rape or of hypothermia immediately after being found in a trash bag.  Brawley had no cuts, no abrasions, or virtually any other injuries at all.  It has even been reported that the hospital noted that her teeth had been recently brushed.  Hardly indicative of a person being held captive in the woods for days.  One neighbor says she saw Brawley crawl into the trash bag on her own accord and last but not least, all the writing found on her was written upside down.

    To tell you the truth this isn’t even good enough.  It is mind numbing to me that she was never prosecuted for bring false charges.  In my opinion every woman who brings false claims of rape should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    What Brawley allowed to happen was even bigger than the men who were falsely accused, it brought a city; and a nation for that matter, to a racial divide that was totally unnecessary as well as potentiality dangerous.

    This is the first time that Brawley has had to pay in any way for what she had done.  It is long since time that paid for her crime and her dishonesty.

    Reason 13,583 Why I Am Not A “Feminist” 

    Carolyn Lubby, a senior at The University of Connecticut, has written a letter to the president of the university regarding changes to its Husky logo.  Now to be honest she made some good points about the athletics program:

    1.  On June 21st 2012, UConn Men’s basketball becomes the first BCS school team to face a postseason ban based solely on low APR (Academic Progress Rate) scores.
    2. On October 6th 2012, Lyle McCombs is arrested on charges of second degree breach of peace for a domestic violence dispute in which he was, “yelling, pushing, and spitting at his girlfriend” during an argument outside a residence hall.
    3. On February 11th 2013, Enosch Wolf is arrested on charges of third degree burglary, first degree criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct when he “refused to leave” a female student’s apartment, “grabbed the hair of the victim and pushed her head” and “knocked the glasses off the victim’s face with his hand.”
    4. On March 21st 2013, Tyler Olander is arrested for trespassing in a structure or conveyance while on Spring Break in Panama City, Florida.

    From what I understand about Tyler Olander, he was arrested while on spring break in Florida for being drunk and trespassing on some one’s boat. Hardly an offense that has anything to do with rape.  Now, I grew up in CT and my long and tangled college career did start at UCONN, but I was not mature enough for college at the time and it didn’t work out.  But, I have always loved UCONN and I have complained that the men’s basketball team has put winning before making sure these student athletes graduate college.  They have one of the lowest graduation rates of major universities; at least with their men’s basketball team.  I have real issues with the college athletic system.  As an aunt of a student athlete, I have seen how high level college athletics work and the system isn’t great and needs reforms.  That is a valid point.  Where she loses me is that she is somehow equating this with the logo and saying the logo represents male aggression towards women and rape.  

    Well President Herbst, the new Husky logo may not be capable of frightening small children, but the face of real life UConn athletics is certainly capable of frightening college women.

    Does this scare you?  


     Does that face make you want to cower in fear that you are going to be raped?  She is especially upset by this comment:

    It is looking right through you and saying, ‘Do not mess with me.’ This is a streamlined, fighting dog, and I cannot wait for it to be on our uniforms and court.~Geno Auriemma stated about the new logo change.

    For those that are not aware, Geno Auriemma is the women’s basketball coach.  Maybe I am giving him an unwarranted benefit of the doubt, but somehow I don’t think Coach Auriemma is looking to put the women on his team in danger.  The Lady Huskies recently were crowned NCAA champions; his eighth championship, call me crazy but he seems to have an interest in making UCONN a program that women want to play for.  If they are afraid for their safety, they are not likely to go to school there no matter how good the program is and how good of a coach he is.  

    Look, I am not dismissing the amount of rapes that happen on college campuses.  Sadly, it is a relatively common occurrence. It happens all too often, on virtually all campuses across the country.  It is an issue that needs to be dealt with.  

    But that is one of the reasons that I find her letter so offensive.  Somehow this cartoon like picture of a dog is the reason that men are rapists?  C’mon.  

    Here is a picture of the old logo:

    Now, the dog has been made to look sleeker, but also made to look more realistic as well.  

    This is the type of thing that actually hurts women, not helps them.  It makes them seem like they are victims cowering at the sight of a cartoon dog.  If this is what feminism is, I pass.  You see I always thought that the reason for feminism was to “empower” women, how exactly is being afraid of a cartoon empowering?  To me, empowering women would be done by teaching them self-defense so that they will feel that they can protect themselves if some lunatic tries to attack them.  Evil exists in the world, and changing a logo isn’t going to stop that.  

    But then again I could never put this on my bio, so what do I know?  

    Carolyn Luby is a senior at the University of Connecticut majoring in Women’s Gender and Sexuality Studies and Spanish and minoring in Latino/a Studies. She is involved in various different feminist groups and violence against women prevention efforts on campus and has particular interest in global feminisms and anti-imperial anti-colonial feminisms.

    Anti-imperial, anti-colonial feminisms; why am I not surprised?

    Judge Jacqueline Hatch Needs to Resign 

    In Flagstaff Arizona an off duty cop named Robb Gary Evans got drunk, flashed his badge to enter a bar for free, then walked up to a woman, slid his hand up her skirt and fondled her genital region.  The unnamed victim showed a great deal of courage by not only reporting this incident to the police, but by following it through to a logical conclusion; a guilty verdict of sexual abuse.

    The judge in this very sad case not only gave Mr. Evans no jail time, he also doesn’t have register as a sex offender.  But to make matters worse this is what she told the victim in the case:

    If you wouldn’t have been there that night, none of this would have happened to you. I hope you look at what you’ve been through and try to take something positive out of it. You learned a lesson about friendship and you learned a lesson about vulnerability.”

    Ugh.  What kind of 19th century thinking is this?  Women who are sexually assaulted are not to blame for someone else’s disgusting behavior.

    Judge Hatch was originally seated after being selected by a bi-partisan panel then Governor Jan Brewer made the final selection.  She ran for re-election in 2010 and won with 52% of the vote.  If she doesn’t resign, lets hope that the people of that county are reminded of this and decide to send her into retirement where she belongs.

    The Judge has since issued an apology after this made international news:

    “It was never my intention to make a situation worse for any victim,”

    What did she think was going to happen when she made her statement?  A woman going up against a police officer on a charge of sexual abuse is, at best, a very difficult thing to do.  While I had never heard of this case until now, I am sure that locally it was quite a story.  During the sentencing hearing another cop testified for the convicted felon:

    “These people put their lives on the line every day,” Evan’s former partner said. “I hope you’ll be lenient on him. To me, this is one way we can give a little back to those in law enforcement who give so much to us everyday.”

    I don’t care what a cop does everyday, once he crosses the line into criminal behavior he is like any other defendant.  It is very well-known that cops stick up for other cops that are dirty or otherwise engage in criminal behavior, The Blue Wall as it is called.  So the fact that victim pushed ahead with her case says to me that she has a great deal of courage.  The judge slapped her in the face with her comments.

    Please let me know who is running against this judge in 2014 so I can write them a check.  Republicans wonder why the left keeps up with its “war on women” theme.  Well, here you go.

    • SignPainterGuy 6:18 PM on 09/11/2012 Permalink | Reply

      Nowhere in the story does it say the woman and cop knew each other, so in my mind, that makes his crime a tad more heinous. The women I know who used to frequent bars would have applied the “Right, Left, Right” defense maneuver; with the right hand, she would have grabbed the guys hand and pushed it away from the offended area, with the left hand, she`d have splashed her drink in his face (if no drink, then her purse or an ash tray or anything else hard and heavy close at hand) and then again with the right hand, release his hand and slap the guy`s face into next Wednesday ! These women may also have employed the “quickly-raised knee” to HIS nether region, just for good measure !

      Judge Hatch absolutely should be removed from the bench, ASAP ! She in fact said,”You got what you got because you asked for it !” Does she think that ALL women who enter a bar are “looking for a hookup” ? …..that ALL women who enter a bar have no morals ? …….. deserve no respect or common decency ?

      Years ago, another woman judge told a rape victim to approach the bench and held out a Coke bottle telling the victim that she could not have tried hard enough to resist the attack, that a woman who truly wants NOT to be raped CANNOT BE raped. She instructed the victim to put her finger into the bottle, while moving the bottle around in quick, circular and random fashion.

      Ya know, some women really confuse me !

        The victim was a friend of a friend of the former cop.

    Akin, Rape, and Pregnancy 

    I came across this today and want to put it here in full.  This woman was impregnated after being raped.  She not only gave birth to her child, she is happily raising her as a single parent.

    What many don’t know (neither did I) is that rapists have the same parental rights as any other father in many states.  So, for anyone to say that “well it is rare” is an argument that doesn’t hold water when you are the person it is happening to.

    As of this writing, Akin has 41 minutes to drop from the race and the allow the party to replace him with little muss.  Doesn’t look like he is going to do that.  He is standing on “principle”.

    For those who think that he didn’t set back the pro-life movement, think again.  He has.

    For all other candidates that are pro-life in cases of rape, remember this sentence:

    I believe that it is wrong to punish the child for the acts of the father.  Simple, true, and easy.  For those that disagree with this strongly, we not likely to vote for you anyway.

    Dear Rep. Akin,

    My name is Shauna Prewitt. You do not know me, but you should. I am one of the approximately 25,000 women who every year become pregnant as a result of rape, and I would like to help you better “empathize” with my story.

    During my final year of college, I experienced an event that was so absolute in its effects that, since it occurred, it has figured as the point of reference from which all understandings and meanings of my life now stem: I was raped.

    I do not know if, in your terms, it was “legitimate rape.” Yes, I cried hysterically. Yes, I fought until my body ached. And, yes, I changed afterward in ways I could not ever imagine.

    Before my rape, I lived normally. A variation of a story you might hear about any other 21-year-old college student. I was young, vibrant, confident and excited about a future that had never felt more within my grasp. In a single, life-altering moment, all of that was stripped away. Physically (and I would say tauntingly), I looked the same after my rape, but inside I felt trapped and incapable of attaining or doing anything because I now was degraded, fearful, weak and powerless. Every moment during and after my rape was an agony. Not even 22 years old and my life, as it seemed, was over. Did I respond legitimately enough for you?

    In the aftermath of my rape, my method of coping — no, my method of surviving — was to resolutely pretend that my rape had never occurred. I treated it as a fictitious nightmare. I convinced myself that if I just lived as I had “before,” I would be as I had “before.” Different plans were in store for me. A month after my rape, I learned I was pregnant from my attack. From this realization, I felt many things. Scared, shocked, even betrayed by my body.

    But, most poignantly given your recent horrifying comments, I felt raped. My pregnancy legitimatized my rape. It had happened; this was real.

    Given your underestimation of the powers of the human body, I suspect you abruptly have concluded that you know how my story ends. But never underestimate the intricacies of human feeling and experience. Although I would not be able to articulate it for months, I was experiencing a most curious emotion toward the life growing inside of me, an emotion that both enlivened me and caused me to experience an intolerable shame. You see, to my surprise, I did not altogether hate the life growing inside of me. Instead, I felt a sort of kinship, a partnership — perhaps the kind that only develops between those who have suffered together — but, nevertheless, I felt a bond.

    I admit that these feelings made me feel, for a long time, like a “bad” rape victim. Why did I not feel hatred? Why, instead of being a source of further darkness, did this pregnancy feel, at times, like a small source of light? Perhaps the answer is as simple as this: Just as being raped did not override my body’s natural ability to get pregnant, rape did not altogether override my body’s natural response to being pregnant. It was not an overnight decision, nor was it an easy decision, but I ultimately decided to give birth to, and then to raise, the child I conceived through my rape. Neither getting pregnant from my rape nor finding unimaginable joy from raising my daughter during the past 7 years makes me an “illegitimate” rape victim.

    Though I felt dead after my rape, my body was acutely alive. How could the very essence of being a living human being — that is, creating life — ever diminish that I had been a victim?

    Today, I am an attorney and the busy single mother of an amazing second grader. My rape is responsible for both of these roles. You see, I enrolled at Georgetown Law School after learning, firsthand, that pregnancy from rape creates unimaginable obstacles for women who decide to raise the children they conceive through rape. In the vast majority of states, a rapist has the same custody and visitation rights to a child born through his crime as other fathers enjoy. In 2010, a paper I wrote on this topic was published by the Georgetown Law Journal, and I continue to travel throughout the country speaking on this issue.

    I believe that the way we as a society, and especially legislators, speak about rape — often wrongly and without a sound, reasoned basis — restricts our ability to pass laws offering meaningful protections. After all, why pass a law restricting the parental rights of men who father through rape when too many legislators argue (without any reliance on science, fact, or experience) that “legitimately raped” woman never would decide to raise a child from that crime? Why pass a law when raped women cannot get pregnant from their rapes?

    Rep. Akin, your statement poses another setback to the cause that I have fought passionately for since my life changed forever when I was raped and became pregnant from that rape at 21. But your statement has not landed on deaf ears or weak legs. My rape did not end my life and, in a profound way, I have become a stronger person after my rape. I will fight to extinguish your inflammatory statements just as ardently as I fought to reclaim a vibrant life. I hope you will find my concerns “legitimate.”

      What a passionate letter! She is absolutely correct. While I have never been raped I do have some understanding about at least some of what she’s saying since I have gone through a similar experience in my life. Actually I have been sexually assaulted twice. Once while I was taking care of the horses at the barn while my horse instructor was away for the summer. Her husband stayed behind to tend the farm. The second was much worse and I was really close to being raped. http://catholibertarian.com/2012/02/10/my-divine-providence-story/

        Oh my, Teresa that is horrible. I am so sorry you had to go through that.

        I loved this letter too. People have a tendency of making issues seem so black and white when they are not. There is much to think about if you do happen to become pregnant from a rape. There are many sick and twisted people out there who could taunt a woman by trying to get visitation rights of a child after the statue of limitations run out. We need to address that issue. In some small way at least a few more people will be aware of that issue because of his moronic statements.

      Wow, just…wow. With all the leaders of the GOP calling for him to resign and then to receive this letter and still not step down is just wrong.

      I am for the “first time in my adult life,” glad I live in Illinois and don’t have to decide whether or not to vote for Akin.

        Hmmm, of the 55 other states you could have chosen, you pick Illinois to be glad you live in so you don`t have to vote for Akin ?! Fascinating ! ;-) Oh, btw, there was a Chicagoan who voted his entire life straight Republican tickets, until the day he died. Now he votes Democrat.

      Akins apologized … how many times now?
      His apology isnt enough it seems. The Democrats are going to milk this cow until no more milk is found. What does this tell us? His apology that has NOT been accepted? How do we tell our children that sometimes an apology doesnt do any good when it comes to the media or politics! Should we NOT apologize to each other at all now? Does everyone know that a double standard exists? That to be forgiven … one has to be a Democrat & a liberal?
      Have the liberal set their ethics standards too high for all Republicans & CONSERVATIVES?
      Are Republicans & conservatives NOT human as they are?
      Do they NOT make the same mistakes bleed the same color of blood?
      Why are all Dems & liberals depraved actions deliberately forgotten by the media?
      Have we forgotten Bill ClintonS women while in the White House? Or JFK & Marilyn Monroe?
      I still cant forget Barney Franks homosexual brothel he was running out of his apartment!
      Biden is the gift that keeps on giving for the Republicans. He is the Gaffe-Master. He is associated directly to the White House(as the VP, of course!).
      Obama forgave him or just ignores everything Biden says.
      Akin is NOT associated with the Romney/Ryan ticket … YET, the media is ardently trying to put them as close as a glove to the hand.
      If Akin wont give up then thats his choice. We should ignore the media as they ignore Biden!
      But we should encourage Sarah Steelman to run as an Independent.
      I understand Palin endorsed Steelman & all Republicans wished they had listened to her!

        Ednar, FWIW, I read in the last couple days that some people DID take Sarah`s endorsement as a sign of the better candidate as opposed to Huckabee`s endorsement of Akin. Too few obviously, but some did.

    Akin Must Step Aside – Now 

    I feel for the man.  I do.  He is in a difficult position.  He worked hard during the primary to get the nomination.  It was a three-way race and it didn’t come easy for him.

    But the truth is this.  He can’t fix it.  He can’t walk it back.  Especially since earlier this afternoon he admitted that he was wrong on “the science” that a woman can stave off pregnancy during a rape.

    His comments were not only wrong from a medical point of view, they were wrong from an ethical point of view.  Every pro-life politician should be better prepared for the “what about cases of rape and incest” question.  You know they are coming.  It is no different for anti death penalty candidates getting the what if your wife/daughter was raped and murdered question.  They are designed to make the politician look silly when they can’t adequately answer the question.  Politics is a rough and tumble business.  The media loves tripping you up and takes particular pride when you are a conservative republican.

    Clare McCaskill is the worst possible choice to win that seat.  Akin continuing in this race is will all but guarantee that not only she gets re-elected, it also says that Harry Reid will more than likely stay Majority Leader.

    I will go further and say he doesn’t deserve to win this seat after these comments.  They were irresponsible, false, and more importantly demeaning to women.  I have seen the data and the numbers that are complied about pregnancies that occur due to rape and incest.  They are very small in comparison to the amount of pregnancies in this country each year, less than 1%.

    But let me tell you, if you are the woman who ends up being in that 1% you don’t care that it is rare.  That is an academic discussion at that point.  If you don’t believe me, just ask yourself if you developed a very rare form of cancer, would that make you feel any better that it was rare?  Would you say ‘lucky me”?  I don’t think that you would.

    When I was still living in Connecticut I used to volunteer at a rape crisis center.  I used to talk to woman of all different ages.  Most of whom were raped within the past few hours.  They were trying to decide if they should call the police, or go to the hospital.  Many of the women I talked to wanted to know if they went to the hospital would the police be called.  Which of course they would be.  Some elected not to go to the hospital for that reason.  They common thread among these women was shame.  There was no such thing as legitimate or illegitimate rape.

    It is very possible that what he meant by that part of the comment was the fact that rape is the most over-reported crime according to stats.  Sadly, some women use the accusation as a hammer.  There are some LaCrosse players who are well aware of that.  That is true.  There have been men who were sent to jail and years later the accuser recants.  One such story was a woman who said she thought she was pregnant and didn’t want to tell her parents.  Horrible, absolutely horrible.  I personally felt that woman should have been prosecuted for what she did to that man’s life.

    None of that makes what Akin said OK.  I don’t care that Whoopi Goldberg once said “It wasn’t rape, rape”.  I don’t care that Hollywood lionizes Polanski.  Again, none of that matters.  What matters is, is this man competent to serve as a U.S. Senator?  I think the answer is quite obviously no.

    He has until 5pm tomorrow afternoon to have his name removed from the ballot and still give another person a decent chance to compete for that seat.  For the good of the party he should do it.  But he also should do it because it is the right thing to do.

    I, for one, am very proud that republicans have not tried to justify his actions or his words.  At least not in large measure.  There are a few.  But generally speaking most seem to feel the same way I do.  Akin must step aside, and he should be doing it tonight.

      I have mixed feelings on this one. I don’t think one mistake, even a big one, makes him unfit to be a U.S. Senator. But I do see the wisdom in having him step aside so someone else is able to take his place because what he said was horrible and/or horribly worded.

      • just a conservative girl 6:06 PM on 08/20/2012 Permalink | Reply

        He said something very similar to this in the past. When he still in the state legislator he was voting on a bill about violence against women and spousal abuse. He said that many women lie about to harm their husbands. He may very well be a nice man. He may very well be respectful of women, but his comments don’t make you feel all warm and fuzzy that is the case.

        He has got to go.

        • Teresa Rice 6:17 PM on 08/20/2012 Permalink | Reply

          Well, since he’s used this type of rhetoric more than once I wholeheartedly agree that he must go.

      I don`t want to address the issue of whether or not Akin should step aside, but on the issue of women falsely accusing men of rape and other abuse, both of you, I and I`ll bet all of the rest of your readers can remember MANY cases of women admitting, years after the fact and after their “abusers” have served time in prison, that they LIED for one reason or another. It happens. It would be great if there were a fool-proof test to determine truth in these cases, but admit it, the justice system listens to women when they charge someone with abuse or rape. However poorly, Akin made a valid point !

      • just a conservative girl 6:54 PM on 08/20/2012 Permalink | Reply

        No one denies that Guy. But we are not even sure that is what he meant. We are assuming it is. But how many of them accuse them simply because they find themselves pregnant? I don’t know if we could find a reliable number on that. Many false claims of rape are done for money or revenge. I would venture to say that the number done because of pregnancy are not very large.

        All of that is besides the point, it wasn’t even relevant to the question he was asked.

    • Don 10:10 PM on 08/21/2012 Permalink | Reply

      The bottom line is this – we need every Senate seat we can get to repeal Obamacare. Especially now that it is a “tax,” it is very, very imperative that we get 51 Republicans in the Senate. That means that a simple majority is all that is needed to repeal it.

      With all that said, Akin puts our hopes of a Senate majority in jeopardy by staying in the race. He damn well better win this or not only is his political career over, but also possibly our chances of repealing Obamacare as well.

    Quote of the Day – The Clare McCaskill Re-election Bid Just Got Easier Edition – Updated 

    “First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare.  It it’s a legtimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

    Todd Akin, GOP Senate Candidate, Missouri

    What a jackass.  While he is correct that pregnancy from rape is rare, about .008%, it isn’t because “your body shuts down”.  Many women in this country use birth control on a regular basis.  

    There were three people running for the GOP nomination and this was the best of the lot?  One of the other two had to better than this lunatic.  

    Senator McCaskill must be doing cartwheels tonight.  Her re-election bid just got a whole lot easier.

    Mr Akin has released the following statement:

    “As a member of Congress, I believe that working to protect the most vulnerable in our society is one of my most important responsibilities, and that includes protecting both the unborn and victims of sexual assault. In reviewing my off-the-cuff remarks, it’s clear that I misspoke in this interview and it does not reflect the deep empathy I hold for the thousands of women who are raped and abused every year. Those who perpetrate these crimes are the lowest of the low in our society and their victims will have no stronger advocate in the Senate to help ensure they have the justice they deserve.

    “I recognize that abortion, and particularly in the case of rape, is a very emotionally charged issue. But I believe deeply in the protection of all life and I do not believe that harming another innocent victim is the right course of action. I also recognize that there are those who, like my opponent, support abortion and I understand I may not have their support in this election.

    “But I also believe that this election is about a wide-range of very important issues, starting with the economy and the type of country we will be leaving our children and grandchildren. We’ve had 42 straight months of unacceptably high unemployment, trillion dollar deficits, and Democratic leaders in Washington who are focused on growing government, instead of jobs. That is my primary focus in this campaign and while there are those who want to distract from that, knowing they cannot defend the Democrats’ failed economic record of the last four years, that will continue to be my focus in the months ahead.”

    Will this be enough?  Time will tell.  This race could very well decide the fate of who holds the senate in 13.  It would be a real shame if such a bone headed remark is the reason why Senator Reid stays speaker.

    Rape is a very serious issue in our country.  While there is no denying that women have lied about it.  A case in the news a while back about a woman who came forward to say that she made up her rape because she thought she was pregnant resulted in the release of an innocent man being released from prison.  Rape is the most often wrongly reported crime, but it is also the most unreported crime.  It is a very emotional issue.  If you are going to talk about this issue, the least you can do is think before you open your mouth.

    • Don 10:01 PM on 08/21/2012 Permalink | Reply

      It is too late now, but he should have stepped down. He would still be in the House of Reps, and in a few years could take another run at the Senate.
