Loser Dick Black apparently doesn’t just hand out plastic fetuses to his fellow delegates.  He also has informed them that spousal rape  isn’t possible.  You just can’t rape a spouse since “she’s in a nightie”.  Unbelievable.  Black is clueless.  No wonder he has to move all over Virginia to find open slots in which to run for election. 

Black is running in the newly formed Virginia 13th Senate District that takes in Loudoun County and Western Prince William County.  His opponent, Shawn Mitchell, is a moderate Democrat.  According to the Washington Post:

Dick Black once questioned whether a husband commits rape if he forces his wife to have sex. The former member of the House of Delegates introduced a bill to ban gays from adopting children. He voted to limit access to birth control.

But the Republican who opposes abortion rights is probably best known on Capitol Square for sending plastic pink models of fetuses to lawmakers as they prepared to vote on an abortion bill.

We seem to be surrounded by right wing fringe lunacy.  Unfortunately, the redistricting was such a hatchet job it is difficult to even know who you are dealing with.  Elena had to call voter registration to find out who was even running in her senate district.  Many other folks who live in Gainesville/Haymarket are in the 13th.  I hope they will vote for Shawn Mitchell and not let party politics lure them into voting for an extremist.  Someone who doesn’t think spousal rape is possible and who votes to limit access to birth control really doesn’t belong in office.   You might want to ask Delegate Bob Marshall if he thinks spousal rape is possible also since he seems to share many of Dick Black’s ideas regarding women. 

Over here in Prince William County, we have a cure for spousal rape. 

Meanwhile, vote Shawn Mitchell.

    Funny line about the cure … though I’m wincing remembering that fine couple John and Lorena.

  2. Morning Rick. I will never forget that morning in Duck, NC, in the early 90’s, hearing Mr. Howler moaning with pain while reading the WaPo. I came running out to see what was wrong and when he read it, my friend and I burst into peals of laughter. He failed to see the humor.

    Is there a woman out there who really blamed Lorena?

    IMO she got off the hook too lightly. Vigilante genital mutilation is not nthe answer to anything in this world.

    But, my arguement is undercut by the fact that, years later, after going through his “porn career”, HE TRIED TO GET BACK WITH HER. That’s an amazing story.

    1. You just had to use the ‘undercut’ descriptor, didn’t you?

      She was an abused woman. She was found to be in temporary insanity or whatever the word is.

      She really has turned her life around and done a lot of good.

    I am astounded, utterly shocked. Is this man for real, is this a joke? Has this moron ever heard of domestic violence? Having worked as a volunteer for the Victim Assistance Network as counselor for their hotline, I am simply speechless. THIS is the type of person who might actually get elected?

    Introduction
    Until the late 1970’s, most states did not consider spousal rape a crime. Typically, spouses were exempted from the sexual assault laws. For example, until 1993 North Carolina law stated that “a person may not be prosecuted under this article if the victim is the person’s legal spouse at the time of the commission of the alleged rape or sexual offense unless the parties are living separate and apart.” These laws are traceable to a pronouncement by Michael Hale, who was Chief Justice in England in the 17th century, that a husband cannot be guilty of rape of his wife “for by their mutual matrimonial consent and contract the wife hath given up herself in this kind unto the husband which she cannot retract.” (1) In the late 1970’s, feminists began efforts to change these laws. Currently, rape of a spouse is a crime in all 50 states and the District of Columbia (2).
