Renegade Raging Grannies sing funny, strong song about “legitimate rape”

I was incensed when Todd Akin said that “legitimate rape” victims don’t get pregnant. What a horrible, inaccurate, frightening message for rape survivors, for women. As an incest and ritual abuse survivor who was forcibly impregnated, it really upset and angered me. I immediately signed a petition asking that he be removed from his position. It helps to take positive action when people do horrible things that hurt others.

But another thing that helps? Humor! The Renegade Raging Grannies created a funny song about “legitimate rape”. I’m grateful for their voices, their strength and humor, and their feminism. Check it out!
