My cut-out-and-keep guide on how to stop #women having sex | Hadley Freeman | Comment is free | The Guardian
An exciting update on last week’s discussion about how certain US politicians believe that, while some women are unfortunate enough to be raped, not all of them have been raped enough. “Forcible #rape” was the coinage these chaps came up with, which heretofore many would have considered tautological. But these politicians pointed out the error of such thinking: in the bill they put forward, they said that if a woman was in any way mentally incapacitated while she was raped, she couldn’t qualify for government money to have an #abortion. The rape hadn’t been forced, you see, and maybe the woman hadn’t fought her attacker off because she was drugged up with Rohypnol, but it could also have been because she, you know, wanted it. Hard to say. So instead, if this woman really did insist on aborting the conception-by-rape pregnancy, she should just go back and get raped again and this time, for heaven’s sake, try to stay awake during the proceedings.
