So what is "Legitimate Rape"?

He's basically saying that a lot of the time when women get raped, they were asking for it or just making it up. This is the guy who said a rape bill could be used by "women angry at an ex husband".

So a lot of the time, women just make up the whole rape thing, on a whim, to this guy. Or they're asking for it. Obviously if they get pregnant, it must have been willing s*x because we can control with mysterious forces when we get pregnant.

Ryan and this guy have also used the term "forcible rape" to categorize rape in senate bills.

So - how badly beaten does a woman need to be for the rape to be "legitimate". What if she wasn't hit at all but simply held at gunpoint or knife point? What if she was drugged unconscious? What if she's 12 years old? Mentally retarded? Or if the rapist is someone she knows - an ex, a camp counselor, a preacher, a neighbor, a prison guard, a date - it's not legitimate then? Hey, he bought her dinner, she agreed to the date, he deserved a little "payback" so it wasn't really rape...and she got pregnant, so she MUST have wanted it.

Anyone who can even categorize rape as "legitimate" or not is a very, very disturbed person...
