New Viral Video Helps You Figure Out If Your Rape Is Legitimate (Hint: It's Not)

False rape. Grey rape. Legitimate rape. Forcible rape. Friend of AlterNet Katie J.M. Baker did a nice job running down the list over at Jezebel this week. But if you don't have time, there's always a parody song version to get you through!

This jingly-jangly guide to Legitimate Rape by  Taylor Ferrera explains that pretty much any kind of rape would not be considered legitimate by the GOP--nor would any kind of abortion. Oh well. Kadies and all other folks who need bodily autonomy: you're out of luck with these rules.

 

At least it's catchy!

 

Still confused by the rich irony of this song? Head over to Mother Jones to read their flowchartabout whether or not you can get pregnant. Warning: it may be a little bit ironic too.
