I will apologize ahead of time to my more feint of heart readers but this politically oriented post needs to be on my blog site that gets the most eyeballs.
It turns my stomach to see this graph, but it is important for female voters, and men who support us as equals, to see this:

All quotes except the last three are from THIS YEAR! 2012! It IS 2012 isn’t it? Not 1952? I’m not entirely sure sometimes. What is notable about the January 2011 quote is that it comes from LEGISLATION voted on in this Congressional session. Co-sponsored by the current Vice Presidential nominee for the GOP ticket.
This is a political party that has been ACTIVELY proposing and passing legislation to curtail not only a woman’s right to choose what happens to her own body, but also to restrict her access to the necessary contraception that could *prevent* unwanted pregnancies AND now is repeatedly stating that there are varying DEGREES of RAPE!
They have accused the media and the left of fabricating the War on Women.
No, no, not really guys. Any woman reading those quotes would be hard pressed to not wonder just how much actual value she has in your eyes.
Ladies – pay attention before you vote – at all levels of government please. Because if you think the feminist movement and women’s equality issues were settled decades ago – you are wrong.
I’ll be back tomorrow with more stuff n fluff and kitty pictures and things – I promise 🙂
I have a daughter. I shall remember that while walking into the voting booth.
Yeah Yeah — I don’t reply to you for months and then two in 5 minutes. The thing that REALLY gets me about this latest quote — the thing that completely makes my blood boil is that it *EXCUSES RAPISTS!!!!* — it wasn’t *YOUR* fault — it was GOD’S PLAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well — the God that I know would not PLAN RAPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And I think that *ANYTHING* that excuses the rapist is just (and now I can’t come up with any words that are safe for folks eyes or that I’d want to say in front of minors.)
