Bill Napoli Is A Fucking Perv

State senator Bill Napoli of South Dakota, the state that recently claimed occupancy rights to the citizenry’s heretofore privately-owned uteruses, has been watching too much “Law & Order: Mutilated Women Unit.”

As you know by now, South Dakota, in a perverted bid to appease the Virgin Mary by revoking human status from its female citizens, has banned abortion. This is quite a spectacular ban. It features an added stupidity that makes it sparkle merrily against the backdrop of plain old regular bans. The added stupidity is this: it precludes abortions even for the hard-luck cases—victims of rape and incest, and women whose health is put at risk by pregnancy— that occasionally tug at the heartstrings of those on-the-fence anti-choicers who, after a few drinks, become moved by the pathos of such a woman’s suffering, almost the way they might be moved by the suffering of a dog, causing them to declare, “Aw hell, it’s kinda mean to make her give birth to her own sister; let daddy’s little rape victim have her abortion.”

In a free society a woman would be able to terminate with absolute ease an unwanted pregnancy for any reason that strikes her fancy. But we do not live in a free society. We live in an oppressive misogynist theocracy. It is from the aforementioned “tragic” exceptions that abortion rights have been dangling in the breeze for some time now. They dangle, precariously, because of the prevailing godbag sensibility that women, who by popular decree must always sacrifice themselves to the common good, should suffer the tortures of the damned before they are allowed to exercise basic human rights. And the aforementioned Napoli jagoff, when asked on The News Hour about the circumstances under which he would personally condescend to allow a woman some modicum of human dignity, sums up this godbag zeitgeist thusly:

A real-life description [of an exception scenario] to me would be a rape victim, brutally raped, savaged. The girl was a virgin. She was religious. She planned on saving her virginity until she was married. She was brutalized and raped, sodomized as bad as you can possibly make it, and is impregnated. I mean, that girl could be so messed up, physically and psychologically, that carrying that child could very well threaten her life.

Note the ease with which he describes this horror as “real-life,” the clarity with which he sees his heroine as a protegée of the Virgin Mary, the relish with which he gratuitously adds the piquant pornographic details. You can practically see his dick swelling with patriarchal pride.

See also Rene’s illuminating comment from yesterday’s post; she actually saw this interview on TV, whereas I only read the transcript.

UPDATE: Digby also goes after this turd.

[Thanks, Jennifer]

    He sounds just like the sort of guy who projects “rape fantasies” onto women. I find it hard to belive that description was off the top of his head, rather it sounds like somthing he’s been brooding on for a long time.

    I’m also in awe of the way he segues to sodomy and back again. Just couldn’t resist adding that little bit of detail (“as bad as you can possibly make it” too) that has nothing to do with getting pregnant I guess. Whatever completes his fantasy.

    Yeah, dick swelling with patriarchal pride indeed. Just like the fucking arsehole he is. Don’t meet his personal rape fantasy? Sorry, no abortion. Ugh.

  2. Shelly

    I saw the interview. Or, at least, I saw as much of it as I could stomach. It was absolutely repulsive. At one point, he waxed poetically upon the “good old days” when unsanctioned pregnancies were dealt with by the whole community coming together in order to force the errant wench to marry the man who ruint ‘er. I suppose that means he also condones the legalization of incestuous marriages and/or pedophilia?

    But, as thoroughly horrified as I was by the maniacal gleam in his eye as he talked about forcing pregnant women to marry, watching him describe what would constitute an acceptable rape was even worse. He was clearly enjoying himself. It was grotesque and surreal.

    What the hell does “sodomized as bad as you can possibly make it” have to do with pregnancy, anyway? Would a South Dakota woman not only have to be vaginally raped but sodomized as well, and “as bad as you can possibly make it,” before she could have an abortion?

    Does this guy know where babies come from?

  4. Kaka Mak

    I hate him.

  5. femmeyfemmefemme

    I’d like to send Bill Napoli a few bloody wire hangers to remind him how great the “good old days” really were. But I’m afraid he’d use them to get it up, while he jacks off all over women’s rights.

    I would like to thank him, however, for his *generous* rape “exception.” I guess those of us who aren’t brutally sodomized or romanced with flowers and chocolates before our attacks are shit out of luck. Of course it should be determined by a legislator how horrific the rape is, not the woman who experienced it.

  6. Laurelin

    What a despicable piece of shit that fuckwit misogynist godbag bastard is. Perverted sadistic wanker.

    The patriarchy hates us, that’s for fucking sure.

  7. kathy a

    ew ew ew. he has another comment later in the interview — he hopes banning abortion will lead to the return of shotgun weddings. really:

    BILL NAPOLI: When I was growing up here in the wild west, if a young man got a girl pregnant out of wedlock, they got married, and the whole darned neighborhood was involved in that wedding. I mean, you just didn’t allow that sort of thing to happen, you know? I mean, they wanted that child to be brought up in a home with two parents, you know, that whole story. And so I happen to believe that can happen again.

  8. Kat

    What Kaka said.

  9. Hazel

    My God! The mind boggles. America scares me sometimes. Even the right wing idiots we get here in Britain wouldn’t be allowed to spout that shit on T.V, never mind pass laws like that! I haven’t a clue who this dick head is, but I spit on his name and curse his shoes anyway.

  10. Luckynkl

    Oh, his mother must be so proud of him! (And wondering why she didn’t abort him).

    In the meanwhile, I found this:

    District 35:
    Sen. William Napoli, Republican, Rapid City, businessman, 341-2370 (home), 348-7373 (work).

    Perhaps we should all give him a call at home? I’m sure he wouldn’t mind hearing from us all since he’s so gung-ho on intrusion into other people’s lives.

    Less we forget, Woe v. Wade has not been overturned yet, and abortion is still legal. And since federal law takes precedent over state law, wouldn’t that make the abortion ban in SD illegal? Wouldn’t declaring it a felony also be illegal?

    In the meanwhile, we can all ask Billy Bob, why he thinks it’s ok to drop bombs on pregnant women in Iraq? Where was his concern for all the pregnant women in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina? Do some pregnant women count and others not count? What is the color of the women who count and the color of the women who don’t count? Come to think of it, wouldn’t the death of any soldier count as killing somebody’s baby? Cindy Sheehan sure seems to think so.

    Oh wait, men get the freedom to pick and choose who they want to abort off the planet. It’s just women that are not allowed to. Flip flop, flip flop, flip flop. Now it’s legal, now it’s not. He changes the rules whenever it suits him to. To whatever serves or benefits him most at the moment.

    In the meanwhile, I plan on sending his mother a sympathy card on Mother’s Day.

  11. Hattie

    Sorry I missed the interview. Oh, wait. I’m NOT sorry I missed the interview.

  12. No Blood for Hubris

    The leitmotif is inflicting pain on less-powerful others and getting off on it.

    There’s something wrong with these people. Wrong wrong rong. Rong.

  13. Rene

    Thanks for writing about this, Twisty, and finding the actual quotation, which is every bit as bad as I remembered. This shitbag needs to be ousted from office as soon as possible. Perhaps you have readers in South Dakota who can do something: mobilize the non-insane citizens (are there any?), find some non-insane candidate to run against him in the next election, throw bloody hangers at him. Anything.

    After I recovered from my initial nausea, I actually felt sort of vindicated by his statements. As a uterus owner and an unapologetic supporter of abortion on demand (in high school, my friends and I used to harass the anti-abortion protesters outside the abortion clinic on Euclid), I obviously disagree with Napoli and his ilk, but at least he’s putting it out there, exposing the real motives of the anti-choice movement. If any of them really gave a single tiny shit about the innocent unborn, they wouldn’t muddy the polemical waters with all that bullshit about blameless, brutalized Christian virgins. I’m no logician, but I find this position morally inconsistent and ultimately indefensible. If the fetus is a baby, one with rights that are equal to those of its host, what difference does it make whether it’s the offspring of a rapist? It’s still an innocent life, unless you subscribe to that Old Testament sins-of-the-father shtick. And if it’s all about protecting the innocent unborn, how is the state of the woman’s hymen or eternal soul even marginally relevant? The answer is, it’s not. No, Bill Napoli did us all a favor by unwittingly revealing the true motivations of the anti-choice movement: to control women and punish them for being dirty hos.
    For me, the question is fairly simple: Do you believe that the government should be able to force a woman to carry a pregnancy to term? There was a time when real conservatives would say “Fuck no!,” but those were also the days when a Republican first lady could participate in ERA marches and say on television that she would support her daughter’s decision to have an abortion. Those days are long gone, and fuck you, Arlen Specter, for not realizing it.

    A milder story, and apologies for the off-topic-ness, but I just got the Rage at this:

    http://news.scotsman.com/topics.cfm?tid=609&id=339082006

    It’s filed under “weird, quirky and odd stories”, because a terrified abused child is always good for a laugh.

  15. Betsy

    Now I know what I have to do to qualify as a real victim.

    Since I don’t meet those criteria, wow! I’m so glad to find out I can never really be victimized, after all!

    I mean, anything less than what a true victim experiences shouldn’t really hurt my feelings, as he so philosophically pointed out.

  16. spotted elephant

    Wow. It’s good to know exactly what the parameters are for defining rape. I guess the woman most “deserving” of the right to abortion would be one so brutalized that she was dead.

    I’ve been worrying that the US is becoming a theocracy. Silly me-it’s been one for some time.

  17. Heo Cwaeth

    I love the conditionalities. It must be stranger-rape (the least likely kind), AND it must include sodomy (’cause sodomy scares the bejeezus out of wingnuttia), AND the girl must not only be a virgin, but have every intention of remaining one until marriage, AND she must attend church regularly(no rapes at church, ignore the news, they’re lying). So, presumably being raped by your high school boyfriend, church pastor, father, or kid from the grocery store doesn’t count. Certainly you can’t be raped by your husband. Probably you’d have to be beaten as well as raped, because otherwise you were just asking for it.

    I third what Kaka and Kat said. Of course, we know that he hates us too.

  18. Elinor

    So if she’d been an atheist, or hadn’t been sodomized, the rape would be no big deal and she’d have had to give birth?

    The more I read that quotation the more disgusting it gets.

  19. Finn

    What a sick bastard.

  20. Joolya

    Really, all rapes should be videotaped so that Bill Napoli could personally view each and every one and determine whether it was brutal enough to qualify for a pity abortion exemption. However, prior to the raping, rapists should ask their victims if they would please certify their virginity and intent to “save it” for their future husbands. Just think – this way everyone wins! Girls get abortions, juries get evidence, and Napoli gets his rocks off!

  21. No Blood for Hubris

    See http://www.rawstory.com: Governor of South Dakota, a Catholic, has signed law to ban abortion. McCain says he would have, too.

    For me, the question is fairly simple: Do you believe that the government should be able to force a woman to carry a pregnancy to term?

    Rene, just once, I’d like to see one of those polling organizations that purports to take the pulse of America on various issues phrase their abortion survey question this way. Just once. Please?

  23. viveth

    S.D. Gov. Rounds was quoted by CNN as saying: “We must help each mother to see the value of the gift that is a child”

    Here we go with the “gift” thing again. If a woman is brutally raped and impregnated, she should be happy about it, it’s a GIFT!

    Merry-Fucking-Christmas to you too Governor!

  24. Rene

    Me, too, CafeSiren. I really think that if the abortion debate were framed properly for once, it would be a non-issue. The problem with the argument as it stands now is that a lot of people who actually are pro-choice would prefer to call themselves pro-life because they think it makes them sound like nice, regular people. A woman of my acquaintance fancies herself a Catholic (never mind that she supports the war in Iraq and the death penalty), and she likes to identify herself as pro-life whenever the subject comes up. Meanwhile, the only reason that she even has the perfect blond grandchildren whom she loves so much is that her daughter had a D&C late in her second trimester (oh, don’t call it an abortion, whatever you do, because that’s just for bad girls!). The daughter (who, to her credit, is pro-choice, although she tends to keep her mouth shut when her mom starts waxing sentimental about the innocent unborn) had several miscarriages, and then she became pregnant with a fetus that was seriously fucked up. The doctor had said that the fetus was seriously deformed and would probably never have anything but some kind of brief, Terri-Schiavoish life, if it even made it that far. If the pregnancy was allowed to go to term, the daughter’s future fertility would be seriously compromised (and the daughter was getting on in years anyway, making this a race against the clock). So, the daughter had what her mother insisted on referring to as “a procedure,” and soon thereafter produced two perfect sons, who are the light of their grandmother’s life. I often want to tell her that she can thank Roe v. Wade for her grandchildren, but I’m pretty sure that she wouldn’t get it. Because, you know, she’s PRO-LIFE.

    Really, all rapes should be videotaped so that Bill Napoli could personally view each and every one and determine whether it was brutal enough to qualify for a pity abortion exemption.

    Except there’s no such thing as a videotaped rape in the porniarchy. Like Char said in the “On Jailing Rape Victims” thread: “If anything she said contradicted, or apparently contradicted, what was on the tape she’s automatically a lying slut. And if it’s on tape, it’s pornography. And if it’s pornography she must have wanted to be in it.”

    I’m waiting for a court of law* to force Napoli to sit and watch a tape of himself saying that crap, over and over and over and over and over, in a roomful of other people (who can volunteer and take turns in their free time), until he Gets It. At least it should keep him out of further mischief.**

    Sounds to me like an open declaration of war upon women. That challenge is to be taken seriously — and reciprocated in kind. I suggest that Sout Dakata women arm themselves with knives from now on. Get some training, and don’t hesitate to use them.

    Kerri-Lea Dixon was found dead in a house in Beaver Bank last Thursday. The 43-year-old man who owned the house was also dead, in what police now call a murder-suicide.

    But RCMP say the story of how (12 year old) Dixon died will never be made public.

    “All the information that’s been released has been released, and our thoughts and prayers are now with the Dixon family,” Taplin said.

    Court records from Dartmouth show Secord faced accusations of being a child molester. In 1994, three girls said he fondled them at sleepovers at his home. He was tried a year later, and acquitted.

  30. CafeSiren

    Update: SD governor just signed the anti-abortion bill. Next stop: federal courts.

  31. Megan

    I think this is awful. I never knew a person, I mean a woman (oops, silly me, must have been my inferior uterus talking), had to be Christian and virginal in order to have the right to their body. I’m also not surprised that she had to have already promised to make up for her liberated uterus with the pledge to give her hymen to a man. Tsk tsk. If only some other lucky guy hadn’t gotten there first, she would have been the perfect woman. It truly is a shame.

  32. Luckynkl

    Ok, I’m a little puzzled here. The bible doesn’t even mention abortion. Even in biblical times, women could abort up until the “quickening.” IOWs, up until fetal movement was felt. Which occurs around the 5th month.

    It was the pro-lifers own who were trying to find a reason to challenge abortion who ironically discovered that there was no possible way for a fetus to feel pain. In order to feel pain, a brain and a nervous system is required. Which is the last thing to develop in a fetus. Which doesn’t occur until the 7th or 8th month.

    It was not religion that banned abortion. It was physicians who banned abortion. Right around the time they started performing hysterectomies on women to prevent hysteria.

    Of course this was nothing more than an unabashed effort by male physicians to take over roles once performed by midwives, so that they could exerise complete control over uteruses and reproduction.

    Needless to say, I don’t know what scripture these wingnuts are pretending to read from. Unless it’s the scripture of the Testerical Victorian Physician.

  33. Nymphalidae

    It’s good to know that as an atheist I can’t be raped.

    It should be noted that according to this asshat men can’t be raped either. Somebody should step up to the plate and teach him a lesson.

  34. antelope

    Anybody know of any South Dakota products we can boycott at a nationwide or maybe even worldwide level? What the hell do they do in that State anyway? I just tried to find out from the official state web site but none of the links were working correctly.

    I am 100% willing to write letters to the editor & put up posters to spread the news of this boycott. In a just world, our rage about this would be getting AT LEAST as much attention as all of the craziness around those Danish cartoons. Mind you – a lot of the reactions may have been crazy, but several European stores pulled Danish products just the same. We all know that we cannot win an argument of any sort whatsoever w/ these assholes by being correct, logical, or ethical, so let’s just hit ‘em where they live.

    Okay, red states could probably mount some sort of counter-protest that would stop products from being pulled, BUT in the coastal & urban areas it could be done. That’s more than 50% of the population.

    It just might be that the R’s have taken over the polls, so we have to get serious about finding other ways to implement Democracy. I went to a march down the streets for International Women’s Day just a couple days ago, and it was painfully obvious that marching no longer makes even the teeniest, tiniest dent in anything – though I still think it’s a really good experience for children & was glad to see them around.

    We need to see about hitting ‘em on the marketing end, too. If you see an ad for an SD product, call the editor of the magazine or newspaper or call the station & tell them you will not read/view their stuff until those ads are pulled.

    I know this sounds like an empty rant at the moment. I will try again w/ IE to get some info about what the hell companies we would be discussing here.

  35. antelope

    And here’s another thought – how can we get female investors, who I betcha are concentrated in blue states & towns, to dump their stock in SD companies.

    BTW, research so far indicates that their largest employer, johnmorrell.com, exports pig products. How fitting.

  36. antelope

    Phew. Just been trying to do my homework on who else had the same idea & where that conversation is going, and of course the answer is ‘all over the place.’ Folks at DailyKos have identified Iams pet food & Citibank as two companies that do a lot of business there & are generally awful.

    Another idea tossed around was to offer SD women assistance in moving out of the state for good. I love the thought…

    There was also a really good comment way down in the mix that’s worth quoting here, sorry I don’t know how to put it in quote format

    “This has not been easy… (4.00 / 13)

    This has not been an easy battle. The Anti-women forces in South Dakota have been working for 20years and the only people consistently fighting these people over the years have been Jennifer Ring(ACLU) and Kate Looby(PPMNS). Recently over 250 women http://sdanw.org/… turned out to lobby the state legislature on womens rights issues. Many of the legislators were such piss-poor yellow cowards they hid in the bathroom of the state capital trying to avoid talking with these women. (Grown Men hiding like children) It pissed the women off and many of them may end up running for the state legislature.

    Would a State boycott matter… not really. Money does not mean anything to many of these anti-women wackos since they are already dirt poor. What you can do is target the Money guy that has offered the state 1 million to defend the legislation. Watch http://cleancutkid.com for breaking news on who this anonymous donor is. This is not my blog, just one of the best blogs in South Dakota.

    Do you guys really want to make a difference? We have some good pro-women candidates this year opposing these morons for the first time in a long time. In the next few months websites are goin up for these candidates and your support of just a few dollars would make more of an impact than avoiding the Corn Palace or Mt Rushmore.

    BTW: Gateway left South Dakota years ago. Only a skeleton crew on board in North Sioux City.

    I just recently moved back to South Dakota and have been as active as I can be with the party, but we have a long way to go. Many of the Democrats (good Democrats) voted for this. In my opinion these people should be targetted too. If you think a boycott is a good idea then have one, but it will not change the problems in the state Government.

  37. Hattie

    Like Megan, I’m too furious to think. I get so tired of male enmity. But they are brought up to be thoughtless exploiters, so I guess I also don’t expect much of them. What makes me most furious of all is women who go along with this crap. Anti choice women are the biggest creeps in the universe. I wish many sick pregnancies and painful childbirths upon them. I wish them to have many mouths to feed on their own without any aid from spouses or public assistance. I am an old witch and I curse them.
    6.8 billion humans on the planet, and some asshole in Kansas thinks we need more!!!
    I’m furious, just furious, furious, furious!!!

  38. Pinko Punko

    Some Utah state legislature cobag said the same thing awhile back. He also went the extra step of pointing out that the violent rape where the victim fights back is looked upon much more favorably by the rape arbitration panel than you know, if she just passed out drunk. Rape, there are so many shades! I wonder what Vox Day has to say? Or the Manly Menâ„¢?

    Total fucking cobags. All of them. Sorry for the saucy language, kids, I got myself into a bother.

  39. Shelly

    17 Heo Cwaeth

    So, presumably being raped by your high school boyfriend, church pastor, father, or kid from the grocery store doesn’t count.

    Of course. And if you are the victim of one of those non-qualifying rapes, and you get pregnant (shame on you, you whore!), you’ll be forced to marry the bastard.

    Certainly you can’t be raped by your husband. Probably you’d have to be beaten as well as raped, because otherwise you were just asking for it.

    Well, back in Napoli’s good ol’ days, it wouldn’t be an issue, because a husband can do what he wants with his property. You can’t rape a “thing,” dontchaknow?

  40. MzNicky

    Well, we’re going to be busy little boycotters if we start targeting all the states joining the current pro-forced pregnancy battle in the War on Women.â„¢ Last time I checked, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee, West Virginia and Kentucky are boarding the bandwagon.

    Shitbag-godbags are everywhere. But we knew that already, didn’t we?

  41. antelope

    Sure enough – I have mellowed out some since last night’s calls for boycott, I guess it was just an empty rant. Though I have learned enough to strongly recomment that y’all stay away from Citibank.

    Anyway, just wanted to share that right now I’m in Canada, where they have government-sponsored ads for sex education & responsible sexual behavior on the public trans. Everyone probably thought I was a freak for standing up on the bus & studying the poster for so long, but it just made me so happy to see that I nearly cried. The motto is, “Know who. Know when. Know how.” How great is that?! And the storyline is about a hot young gal & guy who leave a club together w/ both parties willing, but then she says no because neither of them has brought protection. How great is that?!

    (It occurs to me now it would be that much better if they added one more sentence in which he AGREES when she says no, sad though it is to have to make that clear, but still, compared to back home, glorious!)

  42. Kate

    I went to the PBS site and downloaded the clip and listened. I stopped it when I could hear no more, afterall everyone has repeated it here. And my mouse is so much closer to the source than a remote would ever have been to my inclination in my old tv days.

    That said, I can’t find any argument that better defines for anyone who cares to notice or consider the possibility, that abortion is about nothing more than punishing women for having sex. It is about hating women so completely that these haters wish them to suffer every humiliation and suffer it publically.

    Also, my first thought was that this assbag made such an indifferent and detailed delivery of his imagined exemplary rape scenario, that I can’t help but wonder if he’s not a fan of online porn.

    His mannerisms, his complete freedom of restraint or even the consideration of what his words imply about the lives of women, shows clearly to me that he probably views porn on a daily basis.

    For the entire South Dakota Senate to completely ignore even the most rudimentary exclusions exemplifies how in reality the patriarchy shelters and feeds the rapist, pedophile, womanizer and batterer.

    No one but either a drooling retard, or an apologizer for our fucked up mysoginistic culture disguised as a democracy would even assume that his comments signify anything less.

    Bill Napoli is a Theocratic Fascist. His goal is to destroy ALL freedom in the USA. He is a modern Hitler.

    This is why I oppose Gay Marriage. The issue of Gay Marriage helps Theocratic Fascists like Bill Napoli by getting them votes. We cannot and will not give power to little Hitlers like Napoli(on). Civil Unions are good enough. Don’t allow Gay Marriage to destroy the Right to Choose.

  5. The Debate Link

    Life Begins At…?

    I’m not a big abortion blogger. It seems most people view abortion in terms of black and white. It’s either akin to slaughtering babies, or it’s a key aspect of woman’s rights. And since the arguments seem to devolve into these simplistic terms rat…

  6. Men already have all the options in paternity

    [...] Guess what, Mel?  There already is a way for a man to have “some say over” unintended pregnancies, and it’s incredibly effective: he can abstain from sex.  Keep his pants zipped.  Be a good boy instead of a whore.  And maybe once women start raping abstinent male virgins, forcing them to climax in all sorts of really demeaning ways, even Bill Napoli will grant you guys some sort of special reprieve on child support, even though he really doesn’t feel rape should be a factor in anyone’s reproductive rights. Don’t like it when the shoe’s on the other foot, do they? And yet it’s exactly what women have been told: want reproductive control?  Keep your legs crossed, tramp.  Jesus was a big fan of celibacy for men.  If the US is determined to legislate a peculiar fundamentalist brand of pseudo-Christianity into our allegedly secular government, they can damn well follow all the Bible’s teachings instead of just the ones that make it acceptable for men to use women as sextoys, punching bags and baby machines.  (And I’m confident genuine Christians will back me up on the fallacy of picking and choosing which bits of the Bible you feel like following.) Or here’s an even better thought: maybe we could just stick to the material and legislate according to what’s best for taxpayers and citizens.  Which brings up another question: if these wicked fathers don’t pay for their own bastard offspring, who will?  Why, I guess that would be me!  At least in many cases.  Assuming the US doesn’t manage to cut off what’s left of our social services completely. But it gets even worse.  This wasn’t an issue of failed birth control.  This was an issue of a scheming soap opera type vixen tricking him: He contends that the woman knew he didn’t want to have a child with her and assured him repeatedly that — because of a physical condition — she could not get pregnant.

    [...] Mr Schraub also chooses to point out an example of a relatively extreme view, at the blog “I blame the Patriarchy”. It is an interesting, if representative, example of the extreme “feminist” frankly pro-abortion point of view. It is therefore interesting to contrast that post (and blog) with representatives/spokeswomen for the complementarian feminist point of view at girl-talk. The anonymous author of “I blame” is angry, foul mouthed, and mean spirited. The women at girl-talk … are never that. Who might persuade the outside unconvinced more? The comparison reminds me of my anti-ambassador post earlier. It appears Mr Meyers is not the only one. [...]

    [...] – un senator in sua sa poata vorbi despre singura exceptie pe care o poate vedea el la noua lege in south dakota care interzice avortul chiar in cazuri de viol sau incest, in urmatorii termeni: “A real-life description [of an exception scenario] to me would be a rape victim, brutally raped, savaged. The girl was a virgin. She was religious. She planned on saving her virginity until she was married. She was brutalized and raped, sodomized as bad as you can possibly make it, and is impregnated. I mean, that girl could be so messed up, physically and psychologically, that carrying that child could very well threaten her life.” (pentru ca, altfel, majoritatea violurilor sint o nimica toata. mai ales daca victima nu e virgina/religioasa.)
