Pat Robertson's comments on adoption
Somebody else's problems?
Congressman Todd Akin sharing his vast knowledge of the female reproductive system: “It seems to me, from what I understand from doctors, that (pregnancies from rape are) really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”
U.S. Representative Steve King chiming in to say he's never personally heard of a woman getting pregnant from rape or incest (not to mention voicing his opinion that dog fighting should be legalized because humans watch other humans fight so...)
Oh, and Steve King also saying this a few weeks ago: "If there's a sexual predator out there who has impregnated a young girl, say a 13 year old girl, and it happens in America more times than you and I like to think, that sexual predator can pick that girl off the playground at the middle school and haul her across the state line and force her to get an abortion to eradicate the evidence of his crime, and bring her back and drop her off at the swing set, and that's not against the law in the United States of America."
Conservative columnist Mona Charin writing this to suggest Todd Akin's pseudo-scientific claims weren't all that stupid: "Is it such an outlandish idea? I looked it up, and it appears that there is no evidence that pregnancies are less likely in cases of rape, but it didn't seem out of the realm of possibility to me."
There is no evidence that these people literally have their heads stuck entirely up their own asses, but it doesn't seem out of the realm of possibility.

A week of this shit PLUS the "Christian" group in this article from Mother Jones PLUS too many online comments referring to women as whores, sluts, and tramps who, because they "spread their legs", are asking for whatever they get

This girl's Instagram photo (from Rich Kids of Instagram) that had this caption: "Can’t really decide which Birkin to use today. #leezyprobz #mycloset #hermes bykillerandasweetthang"

Same friend suggesting that if you don't achieve success, it is because you didn't want it badly enough

Just kidding. How I really feel about the kids being gone all day.
