During the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference, Steve Crowder laughed and joked,
'What is this obsession with Ashley Judd and rape?'
Okay. Let's see. Last year, former Republican Senate candidate, Todd Akin, makes a remark about a women's body being able to reject pregnancy if the rape is 'legitimate'.

Then, former Republican Senate candidate, Richard Mourdock, infers that a pregnancy from rape could be 'intended by God'.

The good news? They lost their senate races. And so did the former Republican presidential candidate, who continuously flip-flopped on women's issues. Me thinks we are seeing a pattern...

And now we have Steve Crowder, a Fox News contributor, making fun of Ashely Judd and rape? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...
Was Crowder referring to a comment the, 44-year old, Kentucky Senate hopeful, made about being raped twice? Or is that just Crowder's style? Given Judd's history and statements, I have no doubt she can handle the jokes, and is quite aware of the dirt that will be flying around during her campaign. But really, Steve Crowder - rape is funny to you?
So, what's up (if that's possible) with these Republican men who think they can mock, and minimize rape? Do they think women are going to just, 'lie back and take it'?  

Birth control access/availability becomes an issue in 2012? A radio host calls an unknown student a 'slut' and 'prostitute' --and is still on the air one year later. And now the Steubenville rape case questions whether a rape victim is 'legitimately raped', if she's unable to say no -- because she's unconscious. Wtf?

I'm not sure where to put these feelings of anger, so I'm writing, and I've become more proactive. This has to stop, or women are going unleash 'that wrath' like no one has seen before.

What are women doing?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
