    Most rapes are unreported.

      A lot of commenters are missing something(19+ / 0-)
      important in Akin's remark.  When he talks about "legitimate" rape he is talking about the ACCUSATION of rape.  There is a widespread belief that many accusations of rape are not "legitimate" and that the rapist is the REAL victim.  Besides (in their view) they're sick and tired of those radical feminists exaggerating everything.   You can hear this in barrooms a lot (and not just from older guys).

      Never mind that instances of false accusation are far outnumbered by the REAL rapes that don't get reported.
