“Legitimate rape” could be a gaffe. Saying that women’s bodies are able to distinguish between voluntary and forced insemination shows he’s out to lunch and needs to go.
:::sigh::: That isn't what he said. Severe stress often prevents conception. It isn't just in situations of rape where that occurs.
Apparently, there are an awful lot of FReepers who don't know a soul who ever had trouble conceiving and had the doctor tell that person to lower their stress level so that they could conceive more easily. I've known plenty, and that advice worked in almost every single case where there was no underlying medical problem. And in those cases where the woman was undergoing fertility treatments, the doctors have told them to keep stress levels as low as possible to increase the chance of conception.
But of course, these doctors don't know anything. Some FReepers, the Pubbie establishment, and the MSM are obviously much more knowledgeable.
To put it bluntly, it’s time we learn from 2010’s few losses.
People like this DO NOT LEARN FROM THEIR MISTAKES.
He will repeat gaffes in the future, possibly EVEN WORSE. It’s time to Freep the heck out of anybody who can make him change his mind.
