Legitimate Pinball

Now this is what I call Legitimate Pinball. Kotaku’s got a cool post about an artist’s take on former too legit-to-quit Republican politician Todd Akin’s infamously bonkers (and ultimately seat-losing) statement about how women’s bodies work.

This grown-ass man has stated:

First of all, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to shut the whole thing down.”



First off: Ah Fuck You Todd Akin.

Secondly check out this pinball machine that artist Marie Busson created in response to Akin’s statement about how much he knows about like medicine and the human body and stuff. From Kotaku author Owen Good’s article:

La Femme Flipper … en Réponse à Tod Akin.” It’s a pinball machine in which the plunger, placed between a representation of a woman’s legs, aims the ball at a set of flippers that block its entry into the womb. Hence the means of shutting that whole thing down. Todd Akin may not be in office, but he can spin his propeller beanie and play this pinball machine all day long and feel better about hisself.


Obviously it’s a legitimate pinball machine and if you play it, know you can shut the whole thing down.
