Republican vs Democrat

2 posts / 0 new

Republican makes stupid comment about rape and the story is non-stop news, but this story about a Democrat gets little to no coverage.

A Minnesota state lawmaker who authorities say admitted having a liaison with a 17-year-old boy at a rest stop faced calls from party leaders on Monday to give up his re-election bid.

Rep. Kerry Gauthier, 56, hasn't been charged in the July incident, and authorities said he wouldn't be because the boy was older than 16, the legal age of consent, and no money was exchanged. Police say the teenager responded to the lawmaker's Craigslist ad for "no strings attached" sex.

And this has the potential to effect millions of others in just what way?

Since a legitimate rape, according to Aken, can allow the body to automatically reject a pregnancy, such thinking will effect legislation, won't it? Evidently, according to Aken, a woman can only get pregnant from an illigitimate rape. The difference between legitimate rape and illigitimate rape is what? Rape is rape.

Aken is a twit.

The world we're leaving for today's teens...

Without immediate global action on climate change, today's teenagers will be forced to live with the consequences of our inaction. The World Bank has issued their third report of climate change, and it says that global temperatures could rise by as much as 4 degrees Celsius by the time today's teens hit their 80th birthday.
