In recently-revealed online comments, Texas state Rep. Jonathan Stickland (R) talks about marital rape and his fondness for marijuana. The comments were provided to the Quorum Report by Stickland’s Republican primary opponent, Pastor Scott Fisher. Using the profile name “Stick,” Stickland responded to a question about sex with his wife in a comment posted to a fantasy football discussion forum in 2008. “Rape is non-existent in marriage, take what you want my friend!” the lawmaker reportedly wrote to another forum user who complained that his wife would not perform the “reverse cowboy” position during sex.”
Asked to comment on his statements on the aforementioned forum, Stickland said that “I stand behind everything I said on that occasion.” “A marriage is and should be a sanctity, there is no question about that. However, a marriage also includes all of the perks of a physical relationship between a man and a woman. And if the husband has needs, just like any normal, healthy man, it is the wife’s duty to satisfy her husband’s appetites in every sense of the word,” he added.
Stickland continued, “And that includes his sexual appetites. Now, you’re going to have people who are politically correct and who are not going to admit that they agree with me, but the fact to the matter is that women like it rough, no matter what they say. You’ll hear them say, ‘Oh, I like my man to be kind, respectful and gentle’ and stuff like that, but at the end of the day, what they won’t tell you is that they’re all just begging to be slapped around a bit before being taken like animals. I know that’s going to be hard to believe for some people, but that’s just the way it is. I didn’t make the rules.”
“So, if you feel like you have to educate your wife on how to satisfy your needs, remember that you don’t have to talk to her,” the Republican lawmaker opined. “Just be a man and force her to give you what you want. Be it oral sex, anal, a threesome or the reverse cowboy position – don’t ask for her opinion. Do what you feel like doing and don’t explain your actions. And that’s going to be perfectly fine because deep down, she’s expecting you to act that way. She wants you to be the man in the marriage. That’s why she married you, even though she’ll never openly admit it.”
Stickland also said, “If men started forcing themselves on their wives more often, there would hardly be any divorces. Just look at what happened when men ruled the world in ancient times. I bet you can’t name a divorce that took place back then, can you? But, political correctness has taken its toll and now we’re in this situation. That’s why there’s no rape in marriage – the ‘till death do us part’ section of the ceremony took care of that. Women have to learn to take the good with the bad in a marriage, that’s the only way to go forward.”
