I come to You All today about the Firestorm Topic of Rape.
Rape, as Defined by the Good People at Dictionary.com, is the following:
Seeing that we HOPEFULLY have a Decent Definition of this Horrid Word, there happens to be Political Figures as well as Average People that are saying that there is a Such Thing as "Different Forms of Rape."
Please Forgive the Size; it will not adjust to the size where you can read it, yet you can find it on my Facebook Page.
The Politicians that come to mind on this EXTREMELY Touchy and Dangerous Topic are Todd Akin, Roger Rivard, and Richard Mourdock.
One man says that "Some Girls Rape Easy", another man says that "Legitimate Rape Rarely Causes Pregnancy", and the third man says "Pregnancy From Rape is a Gift From God".
WOW. Just... WOW.
Do You All know what word comes to mind when I hear these thing? I Truly Believe that a Good Number of You All are Thinking the same word (namely Definition #2):
I COULD BE WRONG; It has Happened Before...
Ladies and Gentlemen, Allow Me to Raise the Stakes, and start Painting this Crazy Picture:
There are people out there who Support these Rape Theories; we all see and have seen it in Print, and hear as well as heard it in Sound Bites: Reprehensible in My Book.
Add in a Heaping Amount of Paul Ryan, a Catholic who is So Against Abortion, he would Sign Off on the OUTLAWING of Abortion. He ALSO is against Contraception AKA Birth Control!!
NOW, Add into all of this (The "Good Rape" Quoters and Paul Ryan) The KEY and Secret Ingredient:
Governor Willard Mitt Romney: The Staunch Pro-Lifer and Mormon, where some Branches of Mormonism supports Polygamy.
Let me Paint the FULL Portrait (In My Eyes) for You All. From what I am Seeing, Hearing, AS WELL AS Observing:
Rape (TO AN EXTENT) would be Legal and NOT Punishable, Abortion would be Illegal, and Multiple Wives would be Gravy, while looking at the child(ren) that women (Single, Married, Otherwise) were FORCED To Carry due to the "Legitimacy" of Rape who are CONSTANTLY Reminded of the Horrible and Horrifying Act that created the Innocent Life looking up at those Ladies.
Sure, I found this Funny (Funny Fucked Up, NOT Funny HA HA; let that be ABSOLUTELY CLEAR). This Line of Thinking from me Personally (Esp. knowing a few friends that have been Raped AND a Family Member of mine that was VERY NEARLY Raped until she Stabbed the Dude AND Got his Punk Ass Arrested) is Insane: TRUE.
However, if you step back and take a "Reflecting on Your Life" Walk through your City, you can see what I am seeing as well as thinking.
... ... ...
Scary, isn't it?
WHOA, WAIT A MINUTE!!!
Something Piqued My Curiosity!! Tingled My Spider Sense, Know What I Mean?
I have a Couple of Questions for Everyone; DAMN GOOD Ones, Too!!
WHAT IF these SAME PEOPLE (the ones that are Spewing this Venom) as well as the Ones that have NO QUALMS Voting for this Crazy Were Raped, or have a Loved One or a Friend that was Raped? What do they do then?
Do they Condemn the person that was Raped, Do they Seek a Back Alley Abortion to be rid of the "Innocent Life of this Horrid Act" as one of the Politicos has SO Eloquently Worded, or do they Invite the Rapist to their Dinner Table and Break Bread WITHOUT Breaking their Ass?
Can You IMAGINE How Quickly they would Reopen Planned Parenthood, hand out Birth Control, AND Contraception? They wouldn't be able to Mass Produce those items fast enough!! And the Majority of Us are WELL AWARE that this goes WAY BEYOND the Scope of Creating and Birthing Children; STDs, VDs, HIV and AIDS (Redundancy, Yes. I DO NOT CARE) are RAMPANT!!!
What do they say then? THEIR Family Member(s) and/or Friend(s) are Raped, Impregnated, AND Catch/Caught an STD. "This was God's Will; Thy Will Be Done?" "This is a Blessing from God, DESPITE the Act?"
WHO can Fix Their Face AND Mouth to Say this Garbage?
From the Devil's Advocate's Point of View (NOT MINE, yet I can Put Money on the Notion that SOMEONE Already Sees it this way), It MAY BE God's Will IF the Young Lady gets Impregnated due to the Rape; how many Sterile/Vasectomied Rapists are Patrolling out there these days anyway who CANNOT Impregnate a Young Lady? Also, It MAY BE God's Will that you get a Rapist that is CONSIDERATE ENOUGH to put on that Condom so that the Young Lady DOES NOT catch an STD. Who REALLY Knows?
I Write this in Conjunction to My #Vote Blog. There are Some Things in Life that MUST Be Considered as well as Thought Through VERY THOROUGHLY as we Go to the Polls; Early, or On That Day. It Pains Me that there are Misguided Souls trying to Pass these Skiews as Acceptable for the Fragile State that Our Nation is Currently Feeling and Witnessing (I WOULD Say Sick Pups, yet I am Much Better than that).
I Have Just One More Question:
Citing what I have Spoken, as well as Reading the Articles that I have Linked throughout this Blog, are YOU Comfortable Voting for those that are Against Women? NOT JUST ANY WOMAN:
-Your Love Interest BEFORE you two get into a Relationship
-Your Girl Friend(s)
For Me, The Answer and Choice is CRYSTAL CLEAR.
