Video of the Day: Kristen Schaal Defines Rape, Rape with Benefits


If you’ve been reading the news recently — and with the situation in Egypt, who hasn’t — then you may know that our esteemed Speaker of the House, John Boehner, is attempting to redefine rape because he doesn’t think the government should pay for abortions that result from them. Read all about it here, or just watch Kristen Schaal’s wonderful segment on last night’s Daily Show, in which she explains that violent, “forcible rape” is “rape-rape,” while other forms of rape are merely “rape-ish” or even “rape with benefits.” Laugh at Schaal and then cry about what it all means after the jump.
