You Can’t Prosecute Spousal Rape! Those Women Wear Nighties! [VIDEO]

You Can’t Prosecute Spousal Rape! Those Women Wear Nighties! [VIDEO]

Virginia will be holding elections next Tuesday, and some of the candidates running for state legislature are so frightening, that their election could literally strip women of all of their rights.

One such candidate?  Delegate Dick Black.  Black is best known as an anti-abortion politician, determined to end a woman’s right to chose in any means possible.  In his own legislative career he has fought to allow pharmacies to refuse to sell birth control, which he once referred to as “baby pesticides,” and even sent little plastic pink fetuses to his collegues in order to garner support for his bills.

As if that weren’t bad enough, then there is his belief that it’s not worth it to try and prosecute cases of spousal rape, because how could you ever prove it wasn’t consensual?  After all, she was “wearing a nightie” in bed.

Dick Black is a candidate from the same district that recently sent out a mailer depicting Obama shot in the head.  He’s also favored to win his senate seat.  Better stop wearing your nighties to bed, ladies, I hear that means you automatically consent to sex.

What if a man got raped? Then what would he say?

Newly elected Virginia State Senator Richard (Dick) Black has just introduced SB610, which specifically identifies working dogs, hunting dogs, and show dogs as "agricultural livestock" AND prohibits any local entity from regulating humane treatment of agricultural animals!

Gina h, I couldn't agree more that this is the case in some instances. Then there are women that act like lts a commodity. Again I do not agree on rape at all. But is it ok to tease a man only to reject him. See those are mental games, that is not ok either. I personally have walked away from situations in my life. But, I could see how others could react differently. So many variables to be considered
