However, Representative Laubenberg's crime this time - is being either woefully ignorant of what the aftermath of a sexual assault is really like, or worse she is leading her flock to believe that her extreme anti-choice politics are not nearly has heinous as they appear. When pressed a rape exception for the 20 week ban she was pushing. Laubenberg replied
"In the emergency room they have what’s called rape kits where a woman can get cleaned out…"
I have to wonder, has this woman never seen an episode of SVU, like ever, even on accident? This statement is so unbelievably misinformed, that I have to wonder her motives. When male politicians claim that the female body can just "shut the whole thing down" or questions "legitimate rape" or tells women they should prepare for rape like they do flat tires - I get pissed, beyond pissed actually - but I figure they either failed high school biology, didn't have sex ed or are just knuckle-dragging Neanderthals. But when a female politician spreads such bullshit information, it upsets me on a different level. She knows better, she has to - so I'm left with feeling that she just really, really, really doesn't give a shit about other women. She has her position, she has her privilege, she has her power - to hell with everyone else.
