“If I have to listen to one more grey-faced man with a $2 haircut explain to me what rape is,” she warned, “I’m going to lose my mind!”
That was Saturday Night Live alum, current 30 Rock star, and not-so-secret-crush ours Tina Fey speaking Wednesday to the attendees of the Center for Reproductive Rights Inaugural Gala in New York.
Fey did specifically mention everyone’s favorite creepy retarded uncle and wanna be Missouri Senator Todd Akin…
Todd Akin claims that women can’t really get pregnant from a legitimate rape because the body secretes hormones — you know what, I can’t even finish this sentence without getting dumber…It’s something about the body not being able to get pregnant when it’s under physical stress. Mr. Akin, I think you’re confusing the phrase “legitimate rape” with competitive gymnastics.
That’s a good line, but confusing rape with competitive gymnastics is no laughing matter. The police aren’t all that understanding of brain farts like that when yelled from the window of your van towards a busy school playground.
