Alright, I'm going to be the first to say it, because I KNOW you are all thinking it...

Legitimate rape as a title? Really? As apposed to what? Non legitimate rape?

Oy vay.

Yeah not good

Kate said...

Barba is in this yet not cassidy. Am I ready too much into this????

Camila said...

I agree the title in not the best. This is gonna be one of THOSE episodes where Liv question her life because she is the product of a rape.

I have to agree. I'm sorry, that title is just as crass as the comments by a Republican senator that it is referencing.

The father is going to try and clain paternity rights his arguement is going to be it cant be rape because she got pregnant.
They are referencing todd akins ignorant comments.

i dont know about anyone else but i grow tried of livs child of rape storyline. i am a child of rape and i dont let it define who i am i have never question why or how i got here. somehow i doubt whoever created her persona ever talked to one child of rape.

Kate I thought it strange too that Barba is in this one and not Cassidy and I don't think you are reading too much into it at all.

It strikes me funny that we see Barba three episodes in a row. Especially after an episode where he's not even the prosecuting ADA.

Something wonky this way comes...

I bet this is the episode where the rapist tries to claim parental rights. I remember Warren Leight talking about doing an episode with that story line. Apparently, in many states, a rapist can petition for parental rights.

The episode is based on MO representative Todd Akin's statement that there is no such thing as a legitimate rape. And a women can force her body to avoid pregnancy if she raped or if the rape is "legitimate".
