Crushable.com: “Awesome” That Courtney Love Created New Phrase, “Romney Rape Thing”
11:45 am, April 12th | by Laura Donovan
It should come as no surprise that singer Courtney Love would say something as inappropriate as “romney rape thing,” but it’s rather disturbing that pop culture site Crushable would applaud the comment.
In a follow-up post to Gawker‘s report that Love tweeted from her private account that 43-year-old Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl was being inappropriate with her 19-year-old daughter Frances Bean and “had that romney rape thing about him,” Crushable‘s Jamie Peck blasted the insinuation about the bandmate but commended Love’s new phrase:
“First, let’s give credit where credit is due. While it makes little literal sense, ‘Romney rape thing’ is an amazing turn of phrase and I know exactly what she means by it. But that doesn’t make it okay to be flinging accusations around without any proof.”
If you know exactly what ‘romney rape thing’ means, why not explain it to the rest of us? Last I checked, the presidential candidate is not a rapist, and joking that he gives off rape vibes or has sexually assaulted someone is offensive to both the politician and rape victims.
