I didn’t think I could be more repulsed or upset… and yet…
In the vast majority of states, a rapist has the same custody and visitation rights to a child born through his crime as other fathers enjoy.
I am asking you and the GOP to get out of my body, out of my vagina, my womb, to get out of all of our bodies. These are not your decisions to make. These are not your words to define.
Why don’t you spend your time ending rape rather than redefining it? Spend your energy going after those perpetrators who so easily destroy women rather than parsing out manipulative language that minimizes their destruction.
And Eve Ensler, as always, makes for a worthwhile read.
