In case you missed it, Todd Akin, Republican nominee, to represent Missouri in the U.S. Senate, said Sunday about rape and abortion:
“It seems to me, first of all, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”
Which of course, I am sure you already knew about, since I’m sure it baffles you as much as it baffles me.
Do you know what else baffles me? It baffles me that how hard some Republicans make it for women to want be a Republican.
I want to sit on the right. I truly do. I think their financial stances far outweigh the financial stances of the left. I think in business, it makes sense to vote Republican because the party lets you run your business with less regulation, something that works out for a capitalistic society.
But what slays me every single time, about the Republican party, is how they treat and think about women’s issues.
SHUT UP, ALREADY!
If you boys want more votes, stop weighing in on anything that has to do with being a female. You just don’t “get” it. And you don’t “get” it because your religion interferes with your politics.
If I want to take birth control, have an abortion if I am ever raped (because you really can get pregnant if you’re legitimately or even fake raped, that’s how legitimate sperm works), and be a giant lesbian who marries another giant lesbian… SO BE IT.
Please, tell me what any of those things do to interfere or hurt anyone else in this country?
They don’t! They don’t do anything! These are just social issues that bother certain Republicans because of their religion. And they voice their ridiculous opinions on television, and then bring the party down. OVER SOCIAL ISSUES.
Republicans, you have got to get it together over there. You have to realize this isn’t the 1950′s. You have to try harder to get the female voters to like you. Because right now? It isn’t looking too good.
Take your religion out of your politics. Or stop letting some of your party members talk about dumb things on television. Because coming out and saying you “mispoke”, is just insulting women more. Do you think we’re idiots?
Just shut up about women all together. Talk about things like taxes, unemployment, healthcare reform, and the national debt. I promise we’ll understand.
Oh, wait… I see the problem. You guys just didn’t know yet. Women are allowed to vote now. You can stop the war against us. I hope I’ve helped your party out, maybe now we can talk about some real issues now, and not just social ones that cause you to lose voters.
Please. I’m begging you. Stop your war against women. I want to vote on the right.
Are you with me, girls?
