Regardless how hard to believe as that sounds, there appears to be a bill being moved around by Republican Congress people to dismiss the seriousness of rape and possibly make it legal between members of a family. I’d seen the link being passed around on FaceBook before a friend linked it in my comments and I thought, “Why not?”
I went out to check the truthfulness about this, and the bill in question does seem to want to downplay rape, as if women have little right to resist men’s advances. Especially if the male participant is in their own family. WTF is wrong with
(Hattip to Neko)
EDIT: A reader commented this came from a New Jersey Senator, which I just realized I knew that. Where my Southern thing came from was … I dunno. Anyway, that was a fair call, so I fixed it.
