Pol Says It's Only Rape If She's a Virgin

From Feministing:
“Rape, ladies and gentlemen, is not today what rape was. Rape, when I was learning these things, was the violation of a chaste woman, against her will, by some party not her spouse. Today it’s simply, ‘Let’s don’t go forward with this act.’"
Wow, so Tennessee state senator Doug Henry remembers when rape used to be the violation of a real life virgin, but now it's just, "Let's not!" for any old body. Now, even us old whores and married chicks can say we were "raped." Imagine that! Ah, for the good old days, when rape meant a nice, pure virgin!

He and Bill Napoli (South Dakota state senator) remember the good ol' days:

A real-life description to me would be a rape victim, brutally raped, savaged. The girl was a virgin. She was religious. She planned on saving her virginity until she was married. She was brutalized and raped, sodomized as bad as you can possibly make it, and is impregnated. I mean, that girl could be so messed up, physically and psychologically, that carrying that child could very well threaten her life.
Here's the video of Henry:
