deinera says But clearly my vagina was created with anti-rape fortifications. Megan I stole it from Mat on Twitter originally. XD pastilla thinks it's not your vagina, it's your clever ovum that recognizes rape sperm and puts up a Klingon cloaking device to avoid pregnancy, pastilla says of course if you secretly are enjoying the rape (as many women do) then this will not occur. deinera says Oh man, if this were twitter, I would retweet all of those and favorite them for later reading. okram says what wakko said okram says I think the worst part of this is, there are lots of people who agree with idiots like that deinera says Or believe that nonsense to be factual. anisoptera somehow, that doesn't seem like any sort of solution. anisoptera that said, it's always bothered me that those aren't handed out for free okram bets in the united states the raper would succesfully sue the rape victom if she used one of those anisoptera as long as I'm descending into darkness here, it's more likely that a victim's use of such a condom would indicate that she was anisoptera asking for it and therefore it wasn't really rape. deinera says But we have natural defenses against rape right? Our bodies reject the rape! Capraphract says Mind-numbing douchebaggery and ignorance is certainly a unique political strategy. Not sure I get it. wakko says Well, the cure to ignorance is knowledge and experience. Maybe these mouth-breathers just need a little first-hand experience. Capraphract says one would hope they'd be able to get it without. But apparently not, if Jesus said so or something. Shteevie says the whole thing is turning into an interesting damage control situation. Shteevie says GOPers from all over calling on him to step down, his D opponent trying to keep him from doing so, getting comments from R&R... Shteevie thinks some folks in the spotlight can't tell where the line between 'crazy that is accepted by some' and 'unacceptable crazy', which is telling. ∂ємσιѕєℓℓє And you know what? Some Republicans may not be like this, but the ones in charge are. The ones with the most power are. ∂ємσιѕєℓℓє I mean, look at the current running mates. deinera says Yeah, while this guy is definitely spewing some ridiculous nonsense of the 'unacceptable crazy' nature, this isn't that far from some of the deinera says 'unacceptable crazy' that Romney has said in the past. For some reason or another, Americans buy into the most insane shit like... I don't deinera says even know! Rationality and reason are out the window! Like the crazier it sounds, the more folks believe! alteregoliz There's a ridiculous degree of hysteria in politics during the last decade that haven't been present before, most pointedly during Obama's deinera says It's cause the colored-guy is a terrorist. Amirite?? /facepalm alteregoliz Maybe. Maybe it's just because he's reasonable and it makes people who aren't look stupid. I've seen it before in many situations. alteregoliz The hysterical ones can't face how ridiculous they are and they get more and more hysterical instead of just taking a step back and calming Perfect Carlos the OMG NON-WHITE MAN IN OFFICE and an inability to deal with reasonableness Capraphract says I feel like the hysteria started with Bush and has only escalated tenfold since Obama. Capraphract says right or wrong, both sides are certainly extreme these days alteregoliz Fair enough. Having a moron in office certainly frightened the crap out of the Left. Shteevie thinks it's both that he's not white and also that he didn't come from the same caliber of Money that we expect from our candidates. Megan oh man, am I going to have to repost the Todd Akin "Obama is a menace to civilization" video? DBlume shares Todd Akin is a member of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology. wakko says While 9/11 certainly brought the whole Orwellian / Brave New World aspects of the Feds into sharp focus, much of the other rhetoric has been wakko says around since the Bush Sr. and Clinton era and, to some extent even before then. Taiga ... someone hand me my biology 2X4 Capraphract says apparently this is a thing that some politicians have been saying for years. Capraphract says "Secreting special secretions" and ultimately that there's "science" to prove that if a woman gets pregnant, she wanted it and it wasn't Taiga ... biology doesn't work that way! Shteevie says in many ways, the MSNBC trio of Rachel, Chris and Lawrence are pretty awesome. I don't agree with R on a few topics, but I really appreciate Shteevie how they try to expose stories that other places ignore, and also they give counterpoints and make a point to give a more complete picture Shteevie than simply repeating some candidate's speech. wakko wishes Committees had a minimum education requirement. DBlume thinks maybe Akin and Broun are agents of the enemy, nefariously infiltrating the Committee on Science. deinera says WHAT IS THIS SCIENCE NONSENSE OF WHICH YOU SPEAK?!?!
