The late and great ABC radio broadcaster Peter Evans used to argue the point about unique. He would not tolerate any adjective to go with unique. It was either unique or it was not. Someone or something cannot be a little bit unique. I would argue that something can be almost unique. He would argue, you can't be a little bit pregnant. You are either pregnant or you are not.
Apparently a United States Senator thinks you can you can be a little bit raped. In this case I don't think there is a qualifying adjective. Is there an opposite to being legitimately raped? Not properly raped? Weird huh. I won't lump all old white men into the picture, but a good many of them need to have a good hard look at themselves.
Rape victim, don't worry. The worst won't happen. The senator assures us that after taking advice from doctors that it is very unlikely that you will conceive from a sexual assault. Apparently your eggs go and hide until those nasty rape sperm critters die off.
We in Australia hear enough clangers from our own politicians, but I am not sure they go quite so far. I am thankful that the US has President Obama and via the internet, I know there are some very sensible people in the US.
