    who wrote this, but the pro-rape Republicans who say they support innocent life and god's way really want  the same sort of life control over women the rapist does.  

    It infuriates me that we're even talking about this. It's as if opposing the rape exception is extreme, but other anti-abortion positions are moderate and reasonable. Abortion is a woman's right; no one should be able to deny her access to a safe, legal abortion on religous grounds.

      He's the same dude who wrote the brilliant essay about white male privilege.  It's called (I think) Straight White Male: The lowest difficulty level.  

      It uses video gaming as a metaphor for life, and being a straight white male allows you more points, more weapons, easier access to all parts of the game, and less damage in battle.  His other comment: Playing as a black lesbian?  HARDCORE.

      The comments raged for 3 articles worth, and of course lots of whiny straight white men complaining how they never had any privileges like EVER and what about rich black dudes like Eddie Murphy huh huh huh?

      In capitalist America, bank robs you!
