Legitimate Rape

So, I know I just said I wasn’t going to talk about it but this is just too great not to share.  Thank you Taylor Ferrera for writing this and creating a teachable moment!  Lyrics listed after the video.

“A lot of controversy over Todd Akin’s comments on “Legitimate Rape” and the miracles a woman’s uterus can do when it happens. But how does the uterus KNOW when the rape is legitimate? Finally, someone with answers – Me.”

Lyrics:

How can you tell if it’s legitimate rape?
I’ll tell you how to spot legitimate rape.
You’re not sure if you got legitimate raped?
Well here’s a little lesson for you.
Tell me if the following things are true:

I was a little drunk
Illegitimate rape!
I knew the rapist well
Illegitimate rape!
My skirt was kinda short
Illegitimate rape!
I’m married to the man
That’s a husband’s privilege!

How can you tell if it’s legitimate rape?
I’ll tell you how to spot legitimate rape.
You’re not sure if you got legitimate raped?
Well here’s a little lesson for you.
Tell me if the following things are true:

I let him take me out.
illegitimate rape!
I said I was 18.
illegitimate rape!
He didn’t have consent.
I’m sure your eyes were saying yes.
I’m pregnant from the rape.
Clearly not legitimate!

So now we all know what’s legitimate rape.
We all know who to trust to tell us what’s rape.
Republicans who’ve never experienced rape.
They’re the ones I want to decide
That I should keep the baby growing inside.
Because abortion’s always wrong.
Glad things are so black and white.
