If You Want a Seat in the Senate, Don’t Defend Rape

I think that most of us can agree that it is a “gift from God” that Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock will not be serving in the Senate this year. If you are not familiar because you have been busy refurnishing the rock that you live under, Todd Akin was convinced that “legitimate rape” hardly ever causes pregnancy, and Richard Mourdock believed that babies produced by rape and incest are gifts from god and should not be allowed to be aborted. I’m shocked that they couldn’t win with that progressive attitude. I mean, I know that I love having zero control over my own body, and if I got pregnant from a rape, it would be my fault if my uterus didn’t kick it into high gear and fight off the rapist’s sperm. Kidding!

Honestly, I am so very thankful for the people of Missouri and Indiana for electing Claire McCaskill and Joe Donnelly instead of the Akin-Mourdock duo, which were endorsed by the Romney Ryan ticket. Though McCaskill and Donnelly won by a margin that I though was narrow for these races: McCaskill 55-49, and Donnelly 50-44. I find it shocking that, even in 2012, a sizable amount of voters agreed with Akin and Mourdock. Maybe we shouldn’t be as surprised by the margin in Missouri, since they are one of the most conservative states in the union, but I still find it to be unbelievable.

These margins mean that while this battle on the war on women has been won, there are many more battles to come. The only thing that stands between a free America for all sexes, and a trip down memory lane is us. The people of Missouri and Indiana were not about to let this happen and they spoke their minds. We need to stand together and make the most out of this fourth wave of feminism. If we do a good enough job, it might be the last push we need to make a truly equal world for both sexes! I wish that this blog, and other publications like it were unnecessary. Until that day comes, the writers of NotYourCoffeeBitch will be here doing our best to make equality a tangible thing instead of an idea, for people all across the globe.
