N’est ce pas?
It seems clear that for many Republican elected officials, it’s impossible to understand how incredibly offensive it is to minimize rape, “define down” rape, parse what is or is not “legitimate rape,” say that rape babies are “gifts from God,” make it difficult for women to get abortions if they get pregnant from a rape, etc etc ad nauseum.
So we’ve created this poster in an attempt to demonstrate this offensiveness by turning the situation around.
If you find this poster very offensive, that is exactly the appropriate response. It IS very offensive to talk about people getting raped in a way that makes light of it.
As the GOP-led War on Women continues to escalate, this is the time to stand together and not bow before the onslaught.

Here’s a poster you can share with all your conservative friends and family. It should be great news for them to know that there IS a place in the world where they can pursue their agenda without interference from all that danged government, and liberal busybodies, and pesky people whining about their “rights.”
