The views expressed were offensive. Rape is rape and the idea that we should be parsing and qualifying and slicing what types of rape we’re talking about doesn’t make sense to the American people and it certainly doesn’t make sense to me. What I think these comments do underscore is why we shouldn’t have a bunch of politicians, the majority of whom are men, making health care decisions on behalf of women.

Had to reblog this! Thank you, Mr. President. (via sonofbaldwin)
oh also can we make it a rule that you’re not allowed to say other people have bad taste in men just because they don’t like bulging muscles and cookie-cutter, all-american good looks? that should be a rule.
