Nothing paranoid about it. When you think about all the comments from politicians and other public figures of late -- my personal favorite was the gentleman who claimed that if a woman gets pregnant, it wasn't "really" rape -- it's obvious that a lot of men have problems with the idea that women have a right to decide what happens to their bodies, and a right to protect their bodies from harm.
