Ladies..just remember to be stressed before you're raped and you won't get pregnant...

so says this fuckwit...

Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.) said former Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) is “partly right” regarding Akin’s remarks — which were proven untrue by doctors — about women being able to prevent pregnancy if they are raped.

Speaking at a suburban-Atlanta Chamber of Commerce breakfast, Gingrey also said he has been an OB-GYN since 1975 and tells infertile couples “all the time” to just “relax” in order to conceive, according to The Marietta Daily Journal.

*snip*

Gingrey noted he is an OB-GYN, then discussed what he tells infertile couples.

“And I’ve delivered lots of babies, and I know about these things. It is true. We tell infertile couples all the time that are having trouble conceiving because of the woman not ovulating, ‘Just relax. Drink a glass of wine. And don’t be so tense and uptight because all that adrenaline can cause you not to ovulate,’” Gingrey said, according to the paper.

He continued: “So he was partially right wasn’t he? But the fact that a woman may have already ovulated 12 hours before she is raped, you’re not going to prevent a pregnancy there by a woman’s body shutting anything down because the horse has already left the barn, so to speak.”

3. If that were true, our birthrate would effectively be zero.

I know few women who aren't stressed. Few men, too, actually.

7. I'm an old fart and I remember when men said

women in heterosexual relationships did not have orgasms. That meant to many men that they didn't have to care about their female partner's feelings in bed. It took women to tell us foolish men how their bodies worked. Those of us who listened had much better relationships with our female partners by paying attention to their needs and wants.
So I would say listen to the women when it comes to issues of how their bodies work.
