Fucking lady plumbing, how does it work?

Todd Akin, who is the Republican nominee for Senate in Missouri, explains all of those things that you didn’t learn in eighth grade sex ed, probably because you were too busy giggling at diagrams of penises and saying “vagina, vagina, vagina” over and over again in your head.

Tell us about lady stuff, Todd:

Rep. Todd Akin, the Republican nominee for Senate in Missouri running against Sen. Claire McCaskill (D), justified his opposition to abortion rights even in case of rape with a claim that victims of “legitimate rape” have unnamed biological defenses against getting pregnant.

“First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare,” Akin told KTVI-TV in an interview posted Sunday. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

Akin went on to explain that even if the worst happens and the supposed natural protections against unwanted pregnancy don’t work, abortion should still not be a legal option for the rape victim.

“Let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something,” Akin said. “I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child.”

Someone should start a PAC called Legitimate Rapists For Akin: “Let the body say no because sometimes the first twenty or thirty no’s are just not enough“.
