|Eyes wide shut. Yet another|
old white guy who wants to
force women to do bidding.
|Former TX Gov. candidate|
William "Claytie" Clayton havin' a
laugh at the ladies. A little GOP funnin'.*
Rape is like bad weather, little lady. Thing is, this sounds very similar to something I remember once; wait, don't tell me, I know this one. Oh, I know! It's just like this statement by Clayton Williams, former candidate for governor of Texas who once famously said that rape is like bad weather.
Aside from the violently creepy, horrendously misogynistic tone of the second quote, the first quote almost matches it. Now, Clayton can almost be forgiven, because the GOP politicians in that state are known to be mentally unstable and dangerously stupid (see mugshot above). And he was just funnin' is all.
But like Rush Limbaugh and Mitt Romney (and a whole host of republicans before him), today's quote from Governor Corbett is just the latest in a non-stop political carpet bombing campaign targeting women and their rights.
It seems like they can't help themselves. It's like some kind of Misogynistic Tourette Syndrome. "Slut!" "Prostitute!" "Close your eyes and enjoy the unnecessary procedure we forced on you!"
All in favor of retroactive abortion say "Aye." My question is: don't these people realize how angry they're making the rest of the country--and women, in particular? Wait, no, that's not my question. I know the answer to that one. My question is, why the fuck can't we institute retroactive abortion. It seems clear to me that a lot of these GOP old white male human experiments have gone horribly awry. Just sayin'.
