New Site Tracks How Many Days Have Passed Since a Republican Said Something Shitty About Rape

If my 2012 self could visit my 2008 self, 2012 self wouldn't have the heart to tell 2008 self that in the years 2011-2012, there's going to be a whole lot of really depressing rape-mansplaining from the GOP. 2008 self would also be devastated to know that the problem has gotten so gigantic and stupid that a website now exists that tracks how long it has been since an American conservative politician has said something awful about rape. No, no, no, 2008 self, I'd say, don't cry! It's hilarious! Plus your chin gets really clenchy when you cry, and it's really unattractive! But 2008 self would be inconsolable.

Regardless, in this rape-rape legitimate rape honest rape forcible rape easy rape Paul Ryan Todd Akin laugh-so-you-don't-cry world we now inhabit, Days Without a GOP Rape Mention is a helpful resource, as it tracks both how much time has passed before dismaying public nincompoopery from men with actual power and helpfully documents past instances of rape... wisdom storms.

It's really quite impressive when you view it all at once. Like a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle, or a Hubble-captured image of thousands of galaxies at the edge of the known universe. Or the Duggar family.
