Akin’s Comments Were About a DIFFERENT Kind of Bullshit

Oh, well, that totally makes it okay: 

"My comment about a woman's body shutting the pregnancy down was directed to the impact of stress on fertilization. This is something fertility doctors debate and discuss," Akin writes. "Doubt me? Google ‘stress and infertility,' and you will find a library of research on the subject."

Actually, Google "stress and infertility" and you will find a library of conflicting information, along with lots and lots of horseshit anecdotes about how if you just "stop trying" to have a baby and "relax," you will get pregnant by magic. 

In other words, quit being such uptight bitches, bitches. If you weren't such bitches, you'd be worthy of a child. 

I thought back when Akin first opened up his piehole that his comments smacked of this kind of thinking. Not happy to see I was right.

    Akin is apparently one of those men who cannot learn the First Rule of Holes.

    Being from MO, I have to note that going to pubmed (for medical articles, at least some degree of peer review – unlike Google which has an article I asked my cat about). Searching for stress and pregnancy doesn’t do it. You need to find an article on Fertilization Stress AND Rape. Pregnancy is the wrong search term as it is defined along the lines of the normal physiologic process of the 9 months.
    Also, today I see where Akin is saying the liberal media is destroying them the same as McCarthy (that’s right, the 50s communist witchhunt guy). Is he really a person you want to be associated with ?
