PROGRESSIVES, make up your minds: you can't send Todd Akin to the shredder and at the same time give Julian Assange a free pass for his nocturnal activities in Sweden. They both share the same premise: that rape is often non-legitimate (v.g. in date rape, or when the woman changes her mind about having sex mid-intercourse), meaning that is a tool used by women against men for who-knows-what but it's not "real rape". For them it's only when there's physical violence from the onset. Yeah, it's that retrograde. In both cases.
So no, it's not a problem for social conservatives, precisely. Or at least not only for them.
