The Seven Stages of Feminist Grief (Todd Akin edition)
SHOCK: What the fuck did he just say?
DENIAL: No, that can’t be right.
ANGER: Fucking ‘legitimate’?!
BARGAINING: Maybe he’s high?
GUILT: It’s my own fault for checking Twitter.
DEPRESSION: FML, people are defending him.
ACCEPTANCE: Whatever. On to the next sexist asshole.
I’d like to add some to this specific edition
VINDICATION (HOWEVER MINOR): Finding articles/posts/commentary that slap that bullshit down better than you think you could.
HILARITY: Watching the GOP sprain muscles in their effort to distance themselves from him.
(two gifs for that one, because if we didn’t laugh, we’d just cry.)
