Icon sociology.svg This article contains information about one or more living persons.

Articles about living people must be handled carefully, because they are more open to legal threats.
Reference any contentious allegations solidly; unreferenced allegations should be removed.
If legal threats are raised on this page, please direct the potential litigant to RationalWiki:Legal FAQ; do not interact with them.

Even by RW standards, even considering the subject, I think this page is harsh. MDB (the MD is for Maryland, the B is for Bear) 11:47, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

The article seems OK but I agree that the image caption is a rather acerbic.  Lily Inspirate me. 12:12, 21 August 2012 (UTC)
The caption was what really got to me, yes. MDB (the MD is for Maryland, the B is for Bear) 12:24, 21 August 2012 (UTC)
Agreed about the caption, but is this even on-mission? There aren't many articles about US Senators, let alone wannabe US Senators. rpeh •TCE 12:43, 21 August 2012 (UTC)
It's on-mission (Explorations of Fundamentalism), but you're correct that this guy is a nobody. So much so that his logorrhea might have been a publicity stunt, though it sure as shooting went awry. --TheLateGatsby (talk) 12:52, 21 August 2012 (UTC)
It's on mission, but we need to lose/change the picture caption. Cheap ad hominems about this guy's face (which isn't even particularly distinctive) don't do us any service. €₳$£ΘĪÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 12:57, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Can we turn this around?[edit]

I'm not sure that an arsehole like Akin deserves his own article - rather than adding a list of rape apologists to this article shouldn't he be an entry in a list of rape_apologists? I'll start. Bad Faith (talk) 15:02, 21 August 2012 (UTC)
