Regarding Akin, A Legitimate Question

Nailing someone for using the term ‘legitimate rape’ when there is a distinct difference between a forced, violent, random, stranger-perpetrated rape and one in which the involved woman is sometimes not even sure herself whether or not a rape occurred is pure political gamesmanship.  And it’s a confusion which has been created through the use of fuzzy terminology that is for some reason off limits for discussion.

(As a pre-emptive note: Those of you who know me know I care little for the Republican party, and it is both stupid *and* wrong to suspect me of sympathizing with actual violent offenders, and additionally so to accuse me of wanting to disparage or deny the rights of any person to control over his or her own body. So spare me any faux outrage. Comments will be policed accordingly.) Via A Legitimate Question « Gucci Little Piggy.
