First of all, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.
In light of Congressman Todd Akin’s comments during an interview about abortion on Sunday, it’s only fair we warn him about ‘legitimate head slapping‘. This is a involuntary reaction similar to that experienced by women who are being raped, but instead of the body “shutting that whole [pregnancy] thing down“, what tends to happen is that the arms of people presented with dangerous, ill-informed remarks tend to rise and issue a number of sharp slaps to the back of the offender’s head until they stop talking.
Honestly, it’s proven. I’ve seen it happen.
