EcoSalon released its list of 2012’s top 10 most ridiculous quotes about women, and they’re SO ridiculous that Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin’s comment about rape and pregnancy didn’t even make the list (though maybe it should have). In case you’ve been living under a rock, here’s what he said, possibly confusing human women with ducks:
“If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”
Rush Limbaugh also had a gem or two that didn’t make the list:
“So Miss Fluke and the rest of you feminazis, here’s the deal. If we are going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.”
I wonder what EcoSalon and I missed? We probably don’t want to know. Barf.
