When Todd Akin suggested women have natural defenses against impregnation by rape-sperm, “women have ways to shut that whole thing down” became a punchline and political bludgeon for months. Dems insisted Akin was the spokesman for the entire GOP, Team Obama recruited Sandra Fluke to fundraise off of his remarks, and lefties targeted Akin with oh-so-civil rape wishes.

But when genius Colorado Democrat Joe Salazar insisted hysterical womenfolk can’t be trusted to accurately identify a rape threat, much less fend one off with anything more powerful than a 9mm whistle? Crickets from the For the Women™ crowd. Perhaps they agree with Salazar: It’s not “rape-rape” until a male Dem gives his stamp of approval, you dumb broads.

And when the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs issued tips for “passive resistance” to rape, like on-demand vomiting and fake menstruation? Chirp, chirp, chirp.

But somehow, the feminist pearl-clutchers found the strength to take up a new cause when they caught wind of @SooperMexican’s #LiberalTips2AvoidRape hashtag.

Evidently, “empowering women” by making them powerless is the height of feminism. But mocking libs who want to infantilize and endanger women by encouraging them to lie back and think of England? That’s rapey.

No, what’s offensive and disgusting is the dangerous liberal desire to deprive women of the right to self-defense. But anything to give cover to fellow progressives, right?

Here are some of the #LiberalTipstoAvoidRape that are apparently more offensive than actual rapes that occur when women are disarmed and disempowered by the blood-boiling Left.

Stop triggering feminists by attacking reckless leftist policies and rhetoric that harm women! Stick to making sure women are as defenseless as possible. And ladies, if you want to avoid rape, go practice the liberal-approved method of blowing a whistle while faking your period.
