Ann Coulter: Most women who say they were raped are just ‘girls trying to get attention’

Posting this moron (whom I usually ignore) because it is an example that rape denialists come from the entire political spectrum.


In an appearance on talk radio’s The Lars Larson Show last week, conservative talking head Ann Coulter claimed that women who report rapes, most of the time, are just “girls trying to get attention.”

According to Right Wing Watch, the Godless author said that a botched Rolling Stone story about a campus rape at the University of Virginia just shows that “there is no campus rape problem.”

Coulter dismissed the notion of date or acquaintance rape out of hand, insisting that unless a victim gets “hit on the head with a brick,” it isn’t a legitimate rape.


“People know what a rape is,” Coulter insisted, “and to have girls trying to get attention — from Lena Dunham to this poor psychotic at UVA, Lady Gaga claiming she was raped but she didn’t admit it to herself for five years. What major crime do people say, ‘I didn’t admit it to myself?’”

In a second part of the interview, the 53-year-old pundit said that liberals are vastly overplaying instances of campus rape, which, in her experience is generally perpetrated by liberal men like the “Clintons and Kennedys,” anyway.

10. I am amazed that the person who taped that

got all those kittens to stay in that box for so long.

As for the OP and Ann Coulter, she is a crazy person with both a sick heart and a sick mind. That's pretty much all anyone needs to know about her. Didn't she also call the 9/11 widows "harpies" or was that another RW sicko?

9. Oh I agree

That's why the disclaimer. I usually pay no attention to herwhatsoever, but she says things (on occasion) that people think or imply, no matter where they sit on the political scale. I've seen attempts to minimialize rape statistics, claims that men are raped more often (like its some sort of sick contest), blatant victim blaming here and other places on the web.
