“By getting married, the woman has consented to sex, and I don’t think you can call it rape,” said right-wing activist Phyllis Schlafly yesterday at Bates College. She also noted that women have an “inherent physical inferiority” and should not be firefighters, soldiers, or construction workers: “Women in combat are a hazard to other people around them.”

UPDATE: Meanwhile, Schlafly is making the rounds campaigning against the newly reintroduced Women’s Equality Amendment.
